I can’t help but fixate on movie and television sets. The amount of detail that goes into each set and space to make it feel realistic and lived in — without distracting from the characters — is immense. These sets add to the audience’s experience, engagement and understanding of the plot. It feels like there are so many great new shows coming out, and a lot of the snippets we’ve seen so far have beautifully designed environments and settings.
Here are the 11 sets we’re most excited for and inspired by coming this fall. –Lauren
