New seasons of shows we are looking forward to this month!

The importance of streaming platforms increased when the world was in a frenzy due to the ongoing pandemic, and we were forced to stay indoors. Binge-watching shows became a normal practice as we tried to manoeuvre our way through the new lifestyle of working from home and happened to find some extra time. Some shows we had already watched and some we started during the lockdown.

And many shows have more seasons to come which we can’t wait for. From Stranger Things on Netflix to The Boys on Amazon Prime, here some of the best shows whose next season we are looking forward to.

Stranger Things

Oh, aren’t we all eager to know how Jim Hopper (David Harbour) is alive and what is he doing in that Soviet gulag after what we witnessed at the end of Season 3? The teaser of the new season was enough to make us freak out. And there are those leftover questions on what exactly are the Soviets planning with the Demogorgon in their captivity. What will be the role of our favourite Hawkins residents? Production of season 4 had started in March 2020 but it got delayed because of the pandemic. The show is expected to return this year but there is no announcement of a date yet.

The Boys

The last season of The Boys was a ride into mega mayhem. Outstanding in every department, Season 2 continues to be the most-watched global launch for any Amazon Prime original series. Shooting for Season 3 started in February 2021. There is no information on when the show is expected to come back. But we cannot wait to see what is going on in that cunning head of Billy (Karl Urban) and Hughie’s (Jack Quaid) fate now that we know he would be working for Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit) without knowing the mind-blowing power she hides?

The Family Man

The phenomenal success of the first season thanks to a tight script and powerful acting by the entire cast makes Season 2 of The Family Man a must-watch. The hit Indian web series made us love the character of secret agent Srikant Tiwari (Manoj Bajpayee), and his attempt at balancing his haywire professional life with his personal. The next season will take forward Tiwari’s story. Though it is set to release on Amazon Prime this year, the date hasn’t been confirmed yet.
