With “spooky month” in full swing, many shows have premiered their new seasons this October.


Some of the most talked about shows among York students this month have been: “Riverdale” (Season 2 Oct. 11), “Stranger Things” (Season 2 Oct 27), “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” (Season 14 Oct. 1), and the last–very October–show, “The Walking Dead” (Season 8 Oct. 22).


“Riverdale”, a mystery show, is based off the very popular “Archie Comics” created in 1939. The show follows around 4 best friends, Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead, as they find themselves purposefully or accidentally involving themselves in the small town’s affairs. “It was like the Angel of Death had come to Riverdale” this season with all of the mystery and suspense packed into the first two episodes so far, it’ll leave you counting down the days until the next Wednesday.


“I’ve loved this show and have been watching it since the second episode of the first season premiered last year,” said sophomore Emma Kern.

Set in the 80’s, this sci-fi thriller shadows four friends fighting against the government and their dangerous projects. After their friend Will goes missing, Dustin, Mike, Lucas, and Eleven go searching for their missing friend.


“Oh my gosh I’m so excited, I’m even counting down the days,” said sophomore Elly Fitzgerald. “I actually have a countdown on my phone. That’s how excited I am.”

Bringing it back to reality, we have the Kardashians. “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” reality television show always provides fun, family, and lots of drama. Following the daily dramatics of the Kardashians, mother Kris Jenner, her daughters: Kim, Khloe, & Kourtney Kardashian, and Kendall & Kylie Jenner, always have something to say or a party to throw. The audience has seen the Jenner daughters grow up from their first season up to the fourteenth!


“You can always count on the Kardashians to stir up some drama,” said sophomore Megan Heiss.

The show best fit with October’s eerie appeal would definitely be “The Walking Dead”. This show begins with Deputy Rick Grimes waking up in an empty hospital all alone. He soon realizes that the world as he knows it has changed forever when a zombie apocalypse has broken out. Tune in on Oct. 22 to see how this affects his life in the years to come.


 “One thing I dislike about this show is how sporadically the episodes come out, but lately the episodes have been airing every Sunday which is great,” said sophomore Cat Hanson.
