Alice in Borderland (2020)
In this anime series based on Haro Aso’s manga of the same name, Arisu (Kento Yamazaki), a lackadaisical gamer, and his two closest friends find themselves unexpectedly transported to a hauntingly lonely Tokyo.
They quickly learn that they must participate in lethal games in order to live, and they must do this while attempting to unravel the mysteries of their peculiar situation.
The Hunger Games and Battle Royale are combined in Alice in Borderland. Almost soon after the first episode, a second season was ordered. The convoluted saga’s next instalment debuted on December 22.
Emily in Paris (2020)
Lily Collins portrays the title character Emily Cooper, a marketing executive who moves to Paris for a new career while adjusting to life, love, and the cultural shock of her new home.
The play, which is shamelessly amusing, mainly relies on its location to highlight the glitz of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Can someone really fulfil the job while following in Christina Ricci’s footsteps? In her role as Wednesday Addams, the demonic daughter from The Addams Family, Jenny Ortega aspires to do precisely that.
The protagonist of Wednesday, a coming-of-age supernatural horror, is a ferociously intelligent, sardonic, and morbid adolescent who becomes involved in a murder investigation while attempting to cope with the regular difficulties of high school.
With Catherine Zeta-Jones, Gwendoline Christie, Luis Guzman, Fred Armisen, and even Ricci herself playing a supporting part, Wednesday features an amazing ensemble cast.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan (2018)
In this series, John Krasinski has taken over Tom Clancy’s favourite CIA agent, Jack Ryan, and has him fending off terrorist threats throughout the world.
The first two seasons of the programme received great appreciation for its blend of high drama and espionage, as well as for Krasinski’s portrayal of the title character. On December 21, the third season got under way.
Animal Kingdom (2016)
The sixth and final season of Animal Kingdom is now available for streaming on Amazon Prime, joining the previous five seasons that were already available.
The TNT version of Animal Kingdom premiered in 2016 and ran through June 2022. Joshua “J” Cody (Finn Cole), a 17-year-old who relocates with his estranged cousins after the passing of his mother, serves as the protagonist of the movie.
But as it turns out, the Codys are involved in illicit activity, and J is now entangled in the drama.
The Mindy Project (2012)
Missed The Mindy Project when it first aired on Fox before being available on Hulu from 2012 through 2017? Or maybe you just want to see the whole series again? Regardless, you can watch the whole first six seasons of the romantic comedy on Amazon Prime right now. The eponymous character, played by Mindy Kaling, is a young physician juggling her rigorous job as an obstetrician/gynecologist, her eccentric coworkers, and her convoluted personal life. Even though The Mindy Project has been out of production for some time, it is still a pleasant comedy.
In this television show, Mallori Johnson (WeCrashed) plays a young author who, while she works on her most recent piece, is constantly being tugged between the past and the present.
She unearths family secrets on the plantation where her ancestors once resided while caught between the present and the 19th century.
This South Korean television series, which centres on a young man abducted by organ traffickers, is directed by renowned director Takashi Miike.
He realises that he can see out of the eye that was removed after waking up on the operating table and escaping, and he soon starts to observe a string of horrific killings.
The search to recover his sight, which he is adamant about doing, is only the start of a complex supernatural puzzle.
Welcome to Chippendales (2022)
The hero of this drama on the life of Somen “Steve” Banerjee, the guy who established Chippendales, is Kumail Nanjiani (Eternals, Obi-Wan Kenobi).
The Indian businessman first operated a popular club in Los Angeles, but when he added a male stripper dance company for a female clientele, it created American history and offered something that no one had ever seen before.
His commercial and personal affairs, however, quickly became shady, and the scandalous tale had a depressing conclusion.
The book Deadly Dance: The Chippendales Murders by K. Scot Macdonald and Patrick MontesDeOca served as the source material for Welcome to Chippendales.
National Treasure: Edge of History (2022)
Lisette Olivera plays the intrepid explorer Jess Valenzuela in this original series, which continues the National Treasure film franchise.
Jess’s mission to collect valuable riches throughout the globe leads her to unearth a number of long-buried family mysteries.
In the television series, which also features Justin Bartha and Harvey Keitel from the National Treasure movies, Catherine Zeta-Jones has a supporting part.
This live-action series, which is based on George Lucas’s 1988 fantasy epic of the same name, revisits the movie’s events decades later.
It’s once again up to budding sorcerer Willow Ufgood (Warwick Davis) to lead a motley crew of heroes and rescue the day as a fresh, horrific danger to the planet materialises.
The Disney+ series is a family-friendly fantasy adventure for fans of all ages, combining well-known characters from the first movie with fresh, engaging additions to the Willow world.
Egypt With The World’s Greatest Explorer (2019)
What could be better than visiting Egypt? doing so with Sir Ranulph Fiennes, who the Guinness Book of World Records calls the “world’s greatest living explorer.”
The 78-year-old boasts a number of endurance records, including becoming the first person to go on foot across Antarctica and to both the North and South Poles.
In addition to climbing Mount Everest at the age of 65, he had previously served in the British Army. On the River Nile, Fiennes revisits the location of his hovercraft mission from 1969.
Since the search celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2019, when the series premiered on National Geographic, the timing is ideal.
In case you were wondering, the answer is yes—Fiennes travels with actor Joseph Fiennes, who is his third cousin (once removed).
Doom Patrol (2019)
For a fourth season of odd escapades, the most improbable superheroes of all time are back. If you’ve been reading along, you are aware of the situation:
The show centres on a group of reluctant heroes who, after catastrophic incidents left them with strong talents and, in some instances, bodily scars, now spend their time quarrelling with one another and attempting to avoid doing any heroic actions at all.
But trouble always seems to find them, and it’s typically trouble of a very, very strange type. Stay for the terrible “butt-monsters” and other, much crazier dangers to reality as we know it. Come for the barrage of F-bombs and witty banter.
His Dark Materials (2019)
The third and final season of HBO’s outstanding adaptation of Philip Pullman’s acclaimed fantasy trilogy is the conclusion to the tale of a young girl’s journey across several realms, some similar to our own and others quite unlike, in pursuit of her lost companion and her mysterious father.
The series, which is beautifully realised on screen, stars Logan actress Dafne Keen as a character who travels from one end of the world to the other and through barriers separating her world from others, making friends and allies with talking polar bears, sky-hopping nomads, and strong wielders of the enigmatic substance known as Dust.
Gossip Girl (2021)
This reincarnation of Gossip Girl centres on a fresh generation of rich teens attending an exclusive New York private school who unexpectedly discover that a mystery member of their social circle is watching them.
The story is set eight years after the events of the original Gossip Girl. On December 1, the show’s second season made its debut.
Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin (2022)
The famous character of Bumper Allen, played by Adam DeVine, is followed in this Pitch Perfect spinoff as he relocates to Germany to resurrect his music career and, unavoidably, encounters a variety of obstacles and triumphs along the road.
In the hilarious, musical series, Sarah Hyland, Flula Borg, and Jameela Jamil play supporting parts.
Echo 3 (2022)
The South American setting of Echo 3 is based on the Omri Givon television series When Heroes Fly. A young scientist goes missing along the Colombia-Venezuela border, and her husband and brother, both of whom have served in the military, set out to locate her.
However, the revelation of a secret conflict, together with their troubled personal histories, provide a number of difficulties.
The writer and producer of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, Mark Boal, who has won two Academy Awards, devised the black operations action thriller. It was shot in both English and Spanish.
Interrupting Chicken (2022)
The children’s book of the same name that David Ezra Stein published in 2011 is currently being adapted into an animated preschool series.
The goal of Interrupting Chicken, which stars Sterling K. Brown (This is Us) as Papa, is to inspire children to read and develop their own sense of creative writing.
Little chicken Piper is a talkative, creative child who can’t help but ask questions and make predictions about what will happen next in the narrative as soon as the action begins.
