This new year is loaded with many news for fans of the series. Several platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney +, among others, are preparing to bring new premieres from January of this 2021. From completely new series to the continuations of many that have already been released previously but that we had been anxiously waiting for.
Many people are on the expectation that if the new series of this 2021 will match or surprise us much more than those of 2020. LIke the case of “Unorthodox” and “The Queen’s Gambit” or also comedies like “Ted Lasso” or “Schitt’s Creek”. On the other hand, more and more series are released throughout the year, which means that the competition is very fierce. But for those fanatic people of the series who do not want to miss any of the best releases, we present this list so none are overlooked.
The 10 best premieres that we can’t miss
The Stand, an adaptation of Stephen King tells the story of a false messiah Randall Flagg, the man in black, who emerges after the massive destruction caused by a human virus called “Captain Trips.” A group of people will try to confront their power, and save the Earth from the apocalypse. With big names in the cast like Whoopi Goldberg, Alexander Skarsgård, James Marsden, Odessa Young, Jovan Adepo, Amber Heard, Owen Teague, Henry Zaga, this series may turn out to be one of the best to start this 2021.
In recent statements Boone, who co-writes with Ben Cavell, stated that his references to develop the series are Steven Spielberg and Oliver Stone when they were in their best moments. On the other hand, Stephen King has written a new ending to the story that promises to be one of the best. It will premiere on January 3 via Starzplay.
Dickinson (Season 2)
From the first moment when Apple TV + has came into fiction series, it has shown a lot of confidence with several series that it has launched, renewing all of them. Dickinson has been one of the best series where it shows the youth of the poet Emily Dickinson from a current perspective. Created by Alena Smith, it has a fresh and feminist perspective that shows the discrimination that the author suffered.
This platform brings us this premiere on January 8, 2021 with the episodes that will make up its second season. But that’s not all, along with the announcement of this date, Apple TV + has confirmed that the series will continue with a third season with actress Hailee Steinfeld. The second season of this series will once again feature with actors like Jane Krakowski, Anna Baryshnikov or rapper Wiz Khalifa and, in addition, some of the guest stars have been announced, including Nick Kroll as Edgar Allan Poe, Timothy Simons as Frederick Law Olmsted, among others.
American Gods (Season 3)
Many fans of this series have been weiting for news from official sources related to American Gods. The successful Starz series adapts the novel written by Neil Gaiman and presents us with an epic confrontation between the old and new gods that emerged in today’s society like technology or the media where it will continue exploring the fantastic and mythological adventures of the characters.
Neil Gaiman has announced that the third season of American Gods will arrive on Amazon Prime Video in 2021. To be more precise, Gaiman has said that it will be on January 11 when we can start enjoying the new episodes of the series. It’s also been noted that American Gods season 3 will face several story arcs that those who read the novel will instantly recognize.
Servant (Season 2)
The M. Night Shyamalan series returns again to continue immersing us in the most terrifying mysteries. This second season will again be composed of 10 episodes where the suspense and even terror will continue being present. Apple has announced that on January 15, 2021 it will once again make its viewers vibrate with the premiere of the first chapter of the second season because they will not all be broadcast at once. We will have to wait week by week to get to know the progress of the plot.
During the first season we were able to witness Leanne’s strange personality. From her addiction to always eating tomato soup to resurrecting insects, without neglecting the curses with bible in hand that she provoked around her. In this second season there is a supernatural turn, so we can already make many assumptions about what can happen. Leanne have returned to the Turners’ home and she will begin to reveal her true origin as the future become darker.
Snowpiercer (Season 2)
TNT took advantage of the broadcast of the last episode of Snowpiercer’s season premiere in the United States to launch the first trailer for season 2 of the serie, where they introduced a new character to be played by Sean Bean. The British actor known for series like Game of Thrones, this season he will give life to Mr. Wilford, a character who will make one of Melanie’s worst fears come true, as he shows that the engineer who created the Snowpiercer managed to survive, despite the fact that the train would have left behind.
Another character that is included in the new season is Rowan Blanchard in the role of Alexandra, the dead daughter of Melanie, who is Wilford’s assistant. New episodes of the series starring by Daveed Diggs and Jennifer Connelly will premiere on January 25, 2021.
Loki (Season 1)
Between the proposals that the Disney + platform will offer us, we find the Loki series that will premiere in May. Tom Hiddleston will once again be Loki, Thor’s brother, but now in his own series, which takes up the action since the character escaped with the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame.
There is still no official synopsis for Loki on the Marvel website, so we can only rely on what has been seen in his first trailer and some confirmations made by those responsible for the series. We also know that events will take place after what happened in Avengers: Endgame so we will know where exactly Loki went and what he has been doing since then. But that doesn’t mean that he follows the timeline that we knew because he died in the hands of Thanos and thanks to the gem, we can see him in other totally unexpected scenarios.
The Handmaid’s Tale (Season 4)
In this series we can continue seeing June fighting for her survival and for the revolution in the fascist and misogynistic state of The Handmaid’s Tale, which is based on the novel by Margaret Atwood. The fourth season will arrive in 2021. A season that will consist of ten episodes, three less than usual. Due to how season 3 ended, it is a little difficult to ensure who will be in these new episodes and, at the moment, no new additions have been announced.
The season 3 end was shocking and this season is being carried out with a certain secrecy, but undoubtedly much of the first episodes will revolve around the consequences of this act of betrayal of Gilead. This series can be seen on HBO.
American Horror Story (Season 10)
This 2020 just ended and it’s a particularly bad year for Amerian Horror Story fans because the season 10 premiere couldn’t take place. After a decade, fans are still looking forward to more horror stories. The tenth season will feature by Evan Peters and can be watch on Netflix. Ryan Murphy shared a first promotional poster for season 10 where we can see some hands trying to climb a kind of cliff on a beach, accompanied by the following phrase: “Things are starting to go wrong on the coast.”
The cast of the season will be led by Macaulay Culkin, becoming the most talked about signing, but ‘AHS’ fans have much more to celebrate, like the confirmed returns of Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, among others.
Cobra Kai (Season 3)
Cobra Kai returns in January through Netlix and is a sequel of Karate Kid that brings together the original actors and focuses the perspective on the one who was the villain of the role in that 1980s movie. This season follows the line of ‘Karate Kid III: The final challenge’ because it seeks to turn Kreese into a villain already removed from all humanity to lead the series to fall into a dramatic imbalance that was already displayed in the second season.
Pose (Season 3)
The Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals series will return in 2021 through HBO to continue telling us the story of the Evangelist House led by Blanca and her children. A look at the trans community of the 90s which we would like to reconnect.
This series has spanned several decades looking at the world of African American and Latino ball culture with season two established years after the first. Under normal circumstances, we would have expected the third season to have premiered in June 2020 but this production was unable star to be recorded for the coronavirus pandemic that disrupted several productions. In Pose’s case, they’d only been shooting for eight days when they had to log out.
