Fall TV season will be lacking due to COVID-19; here’s how to cope

With the worldwide pandemic affecting just about all facets of life, TV production has pretty much come to a standstill.

Each fall, we typically see the launch of brand new shows and new episodes of our favorite shows. But because TV production companies have been closed down, you’ll see a lot less new scripted and reality shows in the fall of 2020.

Fortunately, if you’ve switched to streaming video, there are more options to explore. Here are three ways to find quality entertainment options:

1. Netflix, Hulu, and Prime TV all have many series from past years that you may not have seen before. If you’re not already a subscriber, take advantage of the free trial period.
