Halloween Comes Late with Television’s Winter Premieres: New at Reason

Witches, aliens, and vampires, oh my.

'The Passage''The Passage,' FoxWho says television isn't diverse? Here we are, the first real TV week of 2019, and already we've got new series on vampires, space aliens, and witches. Multiculturalism rules! Especially with all those fangs.

The best of the bloody bunch, somewhat surprisingly, is The Passage, based on a trilogy of vampire-apocalypse novels by Justin Cronin. It's been lurching around in development hell for 11 years, morphing from a movie to a series of three movies to a TV series as different producers got hold of it. Television critic Glenn Garvin takes a look at it, along with a Roswell reboot on CW and A Discovery of Witches on Sundance Now.
