It seems like every day we hear another announcement about some more of our favorite books being made into TV shows. While we love seeing our most beloved books brought to the big screen, seeing them from the comfort of our living rooms is even more exciting — especially because TV shows get the chance to delve more closely than films into the stories that we know and love so well. (Still holding out for a Harry Potter TV show, you guys. One day...)
In a TV series, we get to spend some good quality time with our favorite characters, and see a lot more character development than a two-hour movie can really fit in. Die-hard fans of the novel don't have to worry about their favorite scenes being skipped, because there's plenty of time for everything. Even better, in a TV show we often get to see brand new plot-lines that expand the original novel into something excitingly new. Just think how much extra backstory we got in The Handmaid's Tale!
So if you're still having Big Little Lies withdrawals (aren't we all?), clear some space on your TiVo (and some binge-watching time in your schedule) for these nine upcoming book-to-TV adaptations.
