There are some big TV shows that celebrate their fifth birthday in 2024. How many have you watched from the beginning?

2019 was a big year for TV shows across broadcast and streaming services. There were some great fantasy, horror, sci-fi, and comedies shows that are still worth checking out today.

Some of them are still going. Others were limited series or they ended up coming to an end quickly. Then there are others that we know are renewed but we’re just waiting for because, well, schedules, strikes, pandemics, and more.

There are a lot of shows turning 5 in 2024. Here are five you may not realize have been on for so long.

The Boys

The first on the list is one of the Prime Video shows. It’s all about Eric Kripke’s The Boys. This series is based on the graphic novels of the same name, but there have been some substantial changes to characters from the very start. That includes the way The Seven and Payback work.

The series picks up with Hughie Campbell getting the introduction to join The Boys, a vigilante group that takes down Supes. However, that group disbanded for personal reasons, and now Butcher needs to get them back together.

Over the course of three seasons so far, we’ve watched The Boys and The Seven go head-to-head. There are different supporters either side of the war, especially as more and more people realize that the Supes aren’t all that great.

The fourth season will arrive in June 2024. There is also a spin-off series, Gen V.

For All Mankind

If you love stories about the Space Race, For All Mankind on Apple TV+ is a great one to watch. The first season arrived at the end of 2019, and it quickly made it clear that this was not going to follow history. The first episode picks up with the Soviet Union getting the first man on the moon.

Just how would that change events in the world? We’ve watched four seasons so far, jumping through different decades as we watch the first female president, same-sex marriage being legalized earlier than it did, the Soviet Union taking longer to break up, and so much more.

We’re still waiting for this series to be renewed for a fifth season. Fingers crossed we’ll get to see events in the 2010s or even 2020s, even if it is just to wrap things up.

Ghosts UK

You love the U.S. version, but that wouldn’t have happened had it not been for the UK version of the series. In 2019, we got our first look at a couple that moves into a haunted house. When one of them suffers a near-fatal accident, she starts to see the spirits in the house.

This led to a great comedic series. We learn more about the various ghosts over the course of the four seasons so far. There is a fifth and final season confirmed.

The big question is whether the stately home will be turned into the hotel that the couple dreams of. The ghosts seem to be a little more onboard with it now, but will the couple finally succeed?

Good Omens

Another Amazon series you may have forgotten is turning five this year is Good Omens. Of course, you haven’t forgotten about the show itself. Just that it’s turning five.

The first season, which was originally billed as a limited series, dropped in full in 2019. It brought us the story of a demon and an angel working together to prevent the apocalypse, following the book by Sir Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

Eventually, a second season was ordered. We’ve been able to watch that and now we’re waiting for the third and final season to see how Gaiman planned it to come to an end.

Modern Love

We end with another Amazon show. This is an anthology series, and we’re still holding out hope that there will be more to it. The good news is there’s plenty of material to work through.

The series follows stories from the New York Times column of the same name. This is all about stories of love, whether it’s platonic love, second-chance love, gay love, and so much more. Each episode tells a different type of story, and there are some huge names involved including Anne Hathaway and Kit Harington.

The great thing about this series is that you can watch the episodes in any order that you want. I do highly recommend Anne Hathaway’s episode for her tremendous acting as she takes on the role of someone with bipolar, who struggles with everything in life, including friendships.
