CBS All Access’s “The Stand” was the most anticipated new show, while “Attack on Titan” was the top anticipated returning show on the TV Time charts for December.
“The Stand,” a limited series based on the Stephen King novel, is a nine-episode production starring Whoopi Goldberg and Alexander Skarsgard. The series chronicles King’s apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil. The fate of mankind rests on the shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail (Goldberg) and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg (Skarsgard), the Dark Man.
The fourth and final season of anime series “Attack on Titan” is streaming on various services around the world beginning Dec. 7. The series based on the manga is set in a world where humanity lives within cities surrounded by enormous walls that protect them from gigantic man-eating humanoids referred to as Titans.
Taking the silver on the anticipated new series chart was Netflix’s “Bridgerton,” hitting screens on Christmas. The romance series is produced by Shonda Rhimes and is based on Julia Quinn’s bestsellers about eight close-knit siblings of the Bridgerton family looking for love and happiness in London high society.
Coming in at No. 2 on the returning shows chart was the adult animation series “Big Mouth,” season four of which debuted Dec. 4. The series follows a group of kids facing the horrors and delights of puberty.
