2020 is slowly ending and while it was filled with events – mostly not good ones – there were few interesting TV Shows and movies. But the year is not over yet and there are still some of great shows yet to premiere – new ones and continuations. Besides american shows we also added a few international ones that look very promising and might interest you. Without further ado, let’s start.
The Crown Season 4 – Netflix, November 15
TV show about the reign of Queen Elizabeth II will soon greet us with another season. In season 4, Olivia Colman will return as a lead role with two new faces to join alongside her – Gillian Anderson will play the role of Margaret Thatcher and Emma Corrin will portrait Diana Spencer. Viewers will witness not very warm relations between the Queen and the first female prime minister in the country’s history. We can safely say that this season should be as great as the 3 that came before.
His Dark Materials Season 2 – HBO, November 16
HBO’s adaptation of Philip Pullman’s fantasy series is onto Season 2 and bringing the second book in the trilogy, The Subtle Knife , to the screen.The season starts right after Lord Asriel opens the bridge to the new world. Devastated by the death of her best friend, Lyra follows Asriel into the unknown. In a strange and mysterious abandoned city, she meets Will, a boy from our world, who is also running away from his turbulent past. Lyra and Will learn that their destiny is related to Will reunite with his father. Their journey is constantly hampered when war begins around them. Good show so if you missed season 1, binge it ASAP.
Big Sky Season 1 – ABC, November 17
New series by David E. Kelly, creator of “Big Little Lies”. The story of the kidnapping of two young women foreshadows an intrigue that may not be as clear cut as it seems. Kelly is known to create extraordinary and extremely engagins shows. To add to that, great cast with Katheryn Winnick (“Vikings”) in one of lead roles. This is surely a show to check out.
No Man’s Land Season 1 – Hulu, November 18
This international show is set to premiere on 18th of November on HULU and for all of those outside US – HBO Portugal and others might pick it up. The story takes place in Syria during the Civil War. A young Frenchman is looking for a missing sister. Great and original setting, quality production mean that we can expect a very well made show that we will remember for a very long time.
Animaniacs – Hulu, November 20
Reboot of ’90s kids cartoon originally created by Spielberg. Hulu gives young people a chance to experience great cartoons that brought up generations and all in a fresh kind of way. I am very interested in it and I hope that we can find more to the show than the nostalgic feeling.
The Flight Attendant – HBO Max, November 26
Kaley Cuoco (“The Big Bang Theory”) produced and stars in this series adaptation of Chris Bohjalian’s novel of the same name about a flight attendant who wakes up after a layover in Dubai in a hotel room next to a dead body. The main thing is that she has no recollection of the night before so she wonders if she could be involved in the death but try to act like nothing happened. Interesting concept and probably a big thing for Kaley as she might want to cut ties with TBBT’s Penny.
30 Monedas – HBO Max / HBO Spain, November 29 / US 2021 on HBO Max
Spanish series that premiered at the Venice Festival. It is a story about the tragic life of Father Vergara (played by Eduard Fernández) – an exorcist, boxer and ex-convict, who is sent by church authorities to a remote Spanish village. Trailer looks amazing and I can’t wait to give this show a chance!
Selena: The Series – Netflix, December 4
Netflix created a biographic series about the legendary Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla. Show is produced partially by the late singer’s familly as they wanted a more well-rounded telling of her life insted of the whole show focusing on her death. Christian Serratos (“The Walking Dead”) will play the lead role. I am expecting this show to be a hidden gem and yet another Netflix show that wasn’t supposed to be big. Only time will tell!
Your Honor – Showtime, December 6
Bryan Cranston is back in the TV world and will play yet another anti-hero. He stars as a New Orleans judge who goes corrupt trying to protect his son after he commits a hit-and-run. The worse part is that the person he killed is the son of a major crime boss, who will do everything he can to get revenge on the killer. Showtime is known for quality shows so I expect big things.
Pennyworth – Epix, December 13
Epix teams up with DC to create a show about the life of the most popular butler in the world – Alfred Pennyworth. It will take place when he was young so before the Batman times but we can expect tons of action as the trailer suggests.
The Expanse – Amazon Prime, December 16
The show I am the most excited about and probably waiting for the most is back with its 5th season. This is the best sci-fi show that is on right now and probably one of the best ever created. Our heroes will have to face new adventures and difficulties, travel to new planets and probably stop another huge conflict. Of course, everything will be packed with politics and tension as every fraction wants to rule.
The Stand – CBS All Access, December 17
CBS wanted to try once again to adapt Stephen King’s “The Stand”, the book that people say is unadaptable. This time, King himself is directly involved in the adaptation which means there is a chance this time we will get a good show. “The Stand” is filled with stars like James Marsden, Amber Heard, Whoopi Goldberg and Alexander Skarsgård as the villainous Randall Flagg, who plots a hellish takeover of a world ravaged by a catastrophic plague. Rumors say that King himself rewriten the ending to better suit TV.
WandaVision – Disney+, December
The first series in a collaboration between Marvel Studios and Disney +. Viewers will finally see what the MCU looks like when extended to series. The series focuses on two characters from the Marvel Universe – Wanda Maximoff and Vision who are stuck in some kind of a TV land time loop. This is a very highly anticipated shows.
