Love

A lot of us quickly fell for the unromantic comedy that is Love, which explores the joyful, torturous matter of millennial dating. As dislikable and mortifying as its leads often were, viewers were still left at the end of season two wondering if the two really did find love after all. The third series is the final season, which co-producer Judd Apatow claims is also the "sweetest and funniest".

Release date: 9 March

13 Reasons Why

Divisive and controversial, 13 Reasons Why returns for a second season this year, focusing on how Hannah's suicide impacted those around her and indeed who is responsible for her death. The first series stirred a lot of debate over its graphic depiction of the act, but regardless of opinion, the show will no doubt prove a conversation starter once again.
