If you’re no stranger to the world of streaming, you’ve probably already binge watched titles like You, Stranger Things and The Crown. So, we’ve put together a list of titles to look out for this year:
If you’re into creepy, supernatural series that leaves you with a bit of thrill, this series is for you! A Netflix original; season 1 was released in October of 2018 so you have some time to catch up before season 2 premiering in late 2020/ early 2021. The series’ season 1 was based on a novel by Shirley Jackson that follows the Crane family and their story into adulthood. Forced to reunite after a tragic event; the family makes their way back to Hill House, where they spent their childhood to face some pretty creepy events which they’d thought to have left behind. Each episode keeps you hooked enough to give way to the final episode’s thrilling end! Producer of the show, Mike Flanagan confirmed that season 2 will focus on a new family with their own set of past ghosts to face.
Russian Doll is a thrillingly hilarious comedy/drama series set in New York. The series follows Nadia Vulvokov, a games developer that finds herself in a sticky situation on her 36th birthday. If you enjoyed the likes of movies like Groundhog Day and Happy Death Day; this series is certainly for you. Season one initially released in early 2019 with a solid 8 episodes and season 2 was set to launch in February of 2020 but no news of release was mentioned early in the year. We should expect to see it mid to late 2020. The series will hold your attention and leave you questioning yourself well after you’ve completed season 1.
If you’re looking for a mix of titles this year, Netflix has thrown in Africa’s first original Netflix title. Queen Sono stars the beautiful Pearl Thusi in the lead. If you’re looking for a change from your normal viewing, Queen Sono brings a beautiful African take to the table. Displaying amazing action scenes, Pearl Thusi oozes female empowerment while retaining a dramatic flair for navigating her character’s personal life. Enjoy this home-grown series late into February.
Set to premier in 2020, Katherine Langford stars as Nimue, a girl with special abilities and a particularly powerful destiny to fulfil in this retelling of the King Arthur tale. Traveling alongside Arthur on his quest to find the ancient sword, Excalibur and take his place as King, Nimue embarks on a life changing journey as the plot progresses. Much left to the imagination for now, we’ve been given image previews showcasing Langford holding a massive steel sword against a waterfall backdrop. We’re extremely excited for this epic fantasy series!
