The credibility of television has expanded in unprecedented ways over the course of the last few years. What was once considered a secondary medium to film has now started to carve out a niche for itself as a primary method of storytelling. From premium cable networks to streaming services like Netflix and Amazon, everyone wants to get in on the action. When compared to the silver screen, it's a platform that offers far more room for character depth and exploration, and that's something fans have come to appreciate.

Networks have begun to notice this, and as such, more and more TV series have made the jump to the small screen.This coming season alone will see titles like Lethal Weapon and The Exorcist (to name a couple) get the serialized treatment in the TV world, and more will undoubtedly follow in time. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of eight film franchises that definitely deserve an introduction to the realm of television. Take a look at our choices and let us know what film franchises you think deserve a series of their very own! Now let's get started with one of the scariest entries on the list...

The Conjuring

The Conjuring

Arguably no other contemporary horror franchise has more potential for a full-fledged TV series than James Wan's The Conjuring series. Using the case files of Ed and Lorraine Warren as a loose guide, a show following this pair could cover a wide array of hauntings, paranormal phenomena, and general spookiness that lurks within our world. One look at the "trophy room" of paranormal artifacts that they keep in their house during both Conjuring films will instantly tell you that there's plenty of stories left to tell. It's a series tailor-made for both episodic and serialized storytelling, with Ed and Lorraine as the constant to carry us through the overarching narrative. They would lose very little in the translation as well, as the best scares to come out of The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2, and even Annabelle were the low-budget frights that could easily be pulled off on a TV budget.
