Post the New Year celebrations, take time off from hectic socialising. What better way to laze around than binge-watch some new series in the new year? We round up the fresh new shows to watch in January 2020. Thank us later.
Star Trek: Picard – Season 1
The series based on the cult classic, ‘Star Trek: Picard’ will be out January 24 on Amazon Prime. Captain Jean-Luc Picard was enjoying his retirement until it was interrupted by a young woman in need of assistance. In a bid to help, the former captain returns to his place on the bridge of the USS Enterprise and a new voyage begins.
Sex Education – Season 2
The British comedy is set to release on Netflix on January 17 with eight new episodes. While season one left on open-ended terms positioning a lot of lead characters to our judgement, season two turns the plot darker, allowing every character to venture on their journey of self-discovery.
From the winning and much-appreciated team of ‘Lust Stories’, Netflix Originals is back with yet another chilling horror short series. ‘Ghost Stories’, out already, weaves four different narratives by four different directors – Zoya Akhtar, Anurag Kashyap, Dibaker Banerjee, and Karan Johar. Ready for a spooky night of binge-watch?
Avenue 5 – Season 1
‘House MD’ fans can watch Hugh Laurie take lead in the new comic sci-fi show ‘Avenue 5’ this month. The HBO series will release on January 19. In an era when space has become a tourist destination, Ryan Clark, the charming and sharp-tongued captain of the space cruiser ‘Avenue 5’, struggles to manage his crew and passengers, notably the billionaire Herman Judd.
Hip-Hop Evolution – Season 4
Originally aired on HBO Canada in 2016, ‘Hip-Hop Evolution’ has successfully traversed its way to our docuseries must-watch list for the past three seasons. It’s back with season four, which airs January 17 on Netflix. From intimate interviews to leading cultural figures narrating their journey in the hip-hop world, it is one music series that you need to watch.
Sex, Explained – Limited series
Narrated by American actress and singer Janelle Monáe, the new limited series on Netflix is already out. Categorised in five parts – sexual fantasies, attraction, birth control, fertility, and childbirth – it will make you question your knowledge on sex, and everything related to it.
Dracula – Season 1
The legendary vampire is about to come to life again on January 4 on Netflix. Back from the grave, Count Dracula will be on the hunt for new victims. Expect all things charming, enthralling, and gory.
What the love! With Karan Johar – Season 1
A one-of-its-kind dating reality show hosted by filmmaker Karan Johar, ‘What the love! With Karan Johar’ will be out sometime this month (date not confirmed) on Netflix. It will revolve around the filmmaker’s attempt at finding love for the singletons in Bollywood.
