If you’re cuddling up: American Horror Story

Need a reason to snuggle up tighter? Have a horror marathon by catching up on the past four seasons of American Horror Story before watching the new Hotel. This time the show is set in the fictional and very haunted Hotel Cortez, and focuses on the theme of addiction (sounds amazing already).

If you want a musical-TV show that’s not Glee: Empire

Never has a musical worked as well on TV as in Empire, which centres on Terrence Howard’s Lucius Lyon, a hip-hop legend and CEO of Empire Entertainment, and the drama that ensues when his three sons fight to be his successor, his ex-wife returns from jail and family secrets get exposed. Be warned, the songs are incredibly catchy and will get stuck in your head for days on end.

If you’re craving braaaaaains: iZombie

We love The Walking Dead but sometimes shows on the zombie apocalypse can be a little too grave. Enter iZombie, adapted from a comic book of the same name, which sees our protagonist Liv Moore getting infected at a party, which prompts her to take up a job at the morgue where she has a steady supply of brains to eat. The twist: She takes on the personalities and memories of the people the brains belong to, and uses them to solve crimes.

If you’ve got your girlfriends over: Jane the Virgin

Already popular with audiences and critics alike, the show sees Jane — a waitress, a teacher and a virgin (of course) — as she ends up pregnant with her boss’ child after being wrongly artificially inseminated. Loosely based on the Venezuelan telenovela Juana la Virgen, the over-the-top antics and touching plotlines will leave you in stitches and reaching for the tissues, all at the same time.
