Stories that can move you, take you on a journey or keep you on your toes
The weather is cold and the scenery outside does not inspire many walks. On the contrary, the desire to “snuggle” is, perhaps, stronger than ever.
But how do the hours at home pass pleasantly? But, of course, with the company of good TV series. Stories that can move you, take you on a journey or keep you constantly alert!
The Last of Us
The series, which has been discussed like no other, recently came to meet a paradoxically high demand: Pandemic-themed entertainment. The thriller series is set in the future, specifically in 2033, 20 years after the world’s population has been wiped out by a virus that turns its victims into cannibals.
The goal of the protagonists, played by Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) and Bella Ramsey (Catherine, Called Birdy), is to lead the survivors to safety, amidst a storm of threats to infected victims and worse. The apocalyptic drama also stars Euphoria star Storm Reid and newcomer Nico Parker.
The director of “Knives Out” and virtuoso of black comedy, Rian Johnson is the person behind the creation of this series. The story follows Charlie, played by Natasha Lyonne.
The protagonist has the ability to know when someone is lying, so she unravels a different mystery in each episode. With Maya Rudolph producing and a glittering cast including Chloë Sevigny, Rowan Blanchard and Stephanie Hsu, the result lives up to Johnson’s reputation. The series airs on Peacock TV from January 26.
Based on Lisa Taddeo’s best-selling novel, which wowed readers when it first came out in 2019, this small screen adaptation is poised to do just that. The series follows the lives of three women who come face to face with toxic masculinity and inequality. The lead roles are successfully held by Shailene Woodley, Betty Gilpin and DeWanda Wise. The series will be available through Showtime.
The chilling cult drama returns for Season 4 and finds Penn Badgely wasting no time in searching for his next victim. The new season is set in London, so you can expect brand new sets, as well as a host of new, interesting characters, played by Lukas Gage (Euphoria) and Charlotte Richie (Feel Good). At the same time, we will also see the return of the beloved Marienne, played by Tati Gabrielle. The new season will be available on Netflix from February 10.
Another much-talked-about series returns for a second season, where the action moves to The White Lotus Hotel in Sicily. There, Jennifer Coolidge returns as fragile heiress Tanya McQuoid, along with new cast members Aubrey Plaza, Haley Lu Richardson, Theo James and the incredibly evil Tom Hollander. Judging by the result of the first season in Hawaii, everything points to the series returning with a promising brand new season. You will find the continuation of the story on HBO and Amazon Prime.
You & Me
Russell T Davies, creator of drama ‘It’s a Sin’, is the mind behind this sensational new series, starring ‘The End of the F***ing World’s Jessica Barden and Harry Lawtey of “Industry.”
The series deals with the story of four people, whose lives intersect due to a series of tragic events. As Davies is wont to do, in this series too there is a sense of hope amid the immense sadness, which invites you to believe that the happy ending might not just be a Hollywood myth. The series is now available on ITVX.
Ever since the tune “I’ll dance, dance, dance with my hands, hands, hands” was first heard, it’s been haunting our minds, along with the image of Jenna Ortega dancing to it in her own unique way. Everyone knows the famous Addams family, even if they’ve never been big fans. Fiction’s spookiest family returns, this time focusing on the enigmatic Wednesday, the family’s daughter.
No one would be better to make the long-awaited spin-off of the famous timeless series a reality than the “dark” Tim Burton. The success, however, does not stop there, since in the series we also enjoy the beloved Catherine Zeta-Jones in the role of Morticia, and also the original Wednesday, Christina Ricci in a welcome. Watch the series on Netflix.
The first season delivered the adrenaline of a Bruce Willis movie, so in this new season you can expect similar energy. In the new episodes, we’ll see the heroes of Pierpoint Bank return for more all-nighters, power-hunting and number-crunching.
Indeed, the new cast consists of promising names, such as the leading lady Myha’la Herrold, who we will also enjoy in a role in “Bodies Bodies Bodies”, an indie horror project, based on the screenplay by Kristen Roupenian (Cat Person), but also bad boy Harry Lawtey, who also stars in ‘The Pale Blue Eye’, alongside Christian Bale and Lucy Boynton. New episodes of the series are now available on BBC iPlayer and HBO.
“Royal” air and answers to the mysteries surrounding the royal family of the United Kingdom make up the premise of “The Crown”. The drama series moves to the early 1990s, when John Major succeeds Margaret Thatcher as Prime Minister, while at the same time the end of Charles’ marriage to Diana is announced.
The new episodes will see an all-new cast, with Elizabeth Debicki replacing Emma Corrin as the Princess of Wales, Dominic West taking over from Josh O’Connor to play Charles and Imelda Staunton playing Queen Elizabeth after the much-acclaimed reign of Olivia Colman. You will find the episodes of the series on Netflix.
Emily in Paris
Colors, “dizzying” fashion, confused loves and the wonderful landscape of the French capital. This series has it all, and its ever-growing audience knows it well. Emily (Lilly Collins) returns to her Parisian adventures for a third installment.
The new season promises a renewed wardrobe, signed by the undeniably talented Patricia Field, stylist of Sex and the City, an ever stronger mix of Franco-European and American culture, but also a cosmopolitan air, that will make us all exclaim “ooh la la ». The new season is available through the Netflix platform.
Welcome to Chippendales
This is the largely unknown and very strange story of how the Chippendales came to be. The story follows founder Somen ‘Steve’ Banerjee and the trail of scandal he left in his wake – from suicides and money laundering to murder.
Remarkable performances by Nicola Peltz Beckham (who plays Playmate Dorothy Stratten), but also by Juliette Lewis, Dan Stevens and Murray Bartlett (The White Lotus). The series is available on Hulu.
