If we didn’t already have enough to look forward to over the next 12 months, it seems like Netflix has a lot in store for us too. Here’s a round-up of some of the biggest shows and movies coming to the streaming service in 2020.
Starring Richard Armitage and Jennifer Saunders this eight-part series is set to hit our screens on Thursday, January 30. An adaption of Harlan Coben’s novel, this psychological thriller follows the story of Adam, whose life is flipped upside down when a stranger takes a set next to him in a bar and shares a secret about his wife, Corrine. An absolute must-see if you enjoyed the adaptation of Coben’s Safe, this nail-biting show will leave you on the edge of your seat.
To All The Boys | P.S. I Still Love You
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’re jumping back into the world of Lara Jean (Lana Condor) for the second instalment of Jenny Han’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before: P.S. I Still Love You. After taking her relationship with Peter (Noah Centineo) from fake to officially real, everything’s looking pretty amazing for Lara. But when a crush from one of her childhood love letters creeps back into the picture, will her relationship with Peter last?
The Society | Season 2
When Netflix dropped its teen drama The Society last summer, we binge-watched the entire season in a matter of days. Season one focused on the lives of a group of privileged teenagers who find that their town has been abandoned and they’re left to fend for themselves. But it isn’t long until things go catastrophically wrong. No word yet on what month we can expect season two, which means you have plenty of time to watch the gripping first season.
After Life | Season 2
Critics went wild for Ricky Gervais’ dark sitcom After Life when it hit screens last year, with some calling it Gervais’ strongest work to date. Season one followed the life of journalist Tony, who is learning to live his life after the loss of his wife, Lisa. Raw and heartbreaking, it touched on the issues of grief, loneliness and suicide, which won Netflix its first TV Choice Award. Catch up on the first series here.
The Umbrella Academy | Season 2
After a cliffhanger ending, Netflix confirmed that the screen adaptation of Gerard Way’s comic book series, The Umbrella Academy, is returning for 10 more episodes in 2020. The creators have been very tight-lipped about what will happen in season two, but what we can expect is mindblowing scenes and adventures from the dysfunctional superhero family. All the main cast are also set to return, with snippets of script readings popping up across Twitter and Instagram. Catch up on series one, here.
Stranger Things | Season 4
Will and his family might not be in Hawkin’s any more, but we’re willing to bet that they’ll return for what is rumoured to be the film series of Netflix’s award-winning Stranger Things. And, after the shocking ending in the last season, viewers were left with a lot of questions: is Hopper really dead? Will Eleven get her powers back? Writers of the show have already confirmed that season four will consist of eight episodes, the first being Chapter One: The Hellfire Club. In the meantime, catch up on seasons one to three, here.
