I’ve recently decided to break into the TV show niche. It’s been a profitable one for some time and I just never appreciated how profitable. Now I know and I’m enjoying writing.
But there’s one thing that many people ask me about this niche. What will I write about between the seasons? Most of the shows either finished last week or will finish next week. After that, what is there to cover to make my niche a year-round one?
Well, there are lots of ways that I can keep the niche alive. Here’s how I’m going to do it over the summer months.
There Are Summer Shows
TV doesn’t stop in the summer. There are plenty of shows still running, and I’ll move onto some of them.
I’m going to spend the next week or so researching which shows are going to be airing on various networks. I need to find ones that interest me enough to follow them.
I tend to not watch much during the summer months. That’s when I spend time with my family, on holiday and such. It’s going to be interesting for me to find out which shows are on air and what they are about.
Some of them I think are going to be reality shows. I’m not the biggest fan of reality shows, but I can make an exception for a small number of them.
I’ll Catch Up on Shows
There are some TV shows that I’ve been meaning to watch but haven’t had the time to. This is my chance to catch up on some of those shows and I’ll be able to write about them.
No, there won’t be as many people searching for them in the summer months but there will still be some. The fanbase doesn’t completely stop.
Some of the shows on my list include Arrow Season 4, The Flash Seasons 1 and 2, Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 and Chicago Fire Seasons 1 to 5. That will keep my busy enough!
I think I’ll focus on reviews of the shows for now and look at other types of posts I can do. Maybe a roundup of each season will work.
News for Shows on a Break
There is always news for the shows currently on a break. Networks release when they will air and showrunners share trailers and synopses of the first episodes.
Some of the news will surround the individual actors and there’ll be updates on writers and directors for episodes. I’m also looking forward to Comic Con news.
On top of that, there’s always fanbased news and theories on where new seasons could go. The Vampire Diaries already has people talking about Season 8 plans.
Along with that, there’s the chance to look back over the seasons. Just recently, I wrote a post about the top 5 memorable unsubs from Criminal Minds, which does well. I’ll follow suit with other shows.
News for New Shows
There will be new shows that will air in September/October. The summer is the time for news about those shows, such as actors involved and the potential storylines.
I’ll keep a look out for any new shows that I know are coming. There may even be news about some of the cancellations of current new shows because they’re not doing as well as hoped.
Just because the main TV season ends, doesn’t mean there is nothing to write about. I’ve got plenty to keep me going, so the niche is definitely something worth going for throughout the year. I do, however, look forward to September again when the main shows come back!
