Euphoria Special Episode Part 2: Jules

The second season of hit show Euphoria is slated to land later in the year, but two special episodes – written and shot during the pandemic – will bridge seasons one and two to keep the audience going until Rue and Jules (Zendaya and Hunter Schafer) are back on our screens. Following the release of Rue’s special at the end of 2020, the second, comedically titled ‘Fuck Anyone Who’s Not a Sea Blob’, tells Jules’s side of the story. On HBO in the US on January 24 and Sky Atlantic in the UK on January 25

Omari Douglas (right) and Callum Scott Howells in It’s A Sin

It’s A Sin

A five-part drama from screenwriter Russell T Davies, this at-once effervescent yet stark, high-spirited and heartbreaking series (which borrows its name from a Pet Shop Boys song) delves into the lives of a group of young gay men in London during the 1980s Aids epidemic. On Channel 4 in the UK from January 22, and HBO Max in the US – premiere date to be announced

Tahar Rahim and Jenna Coleman in The Serpent

The Serpent

This is the true-crime drama to kick off 2021. Tahar Rahim and Jenna Coleman star in the story of conman and serial killer Charles Sobhraj, who, with his partner Marie-Andrée Leclerc, traveled through Asia in the mid-’70s, posing as a gem dealer while carrying out a spree of horrific crimes. On BBC iPlayer now

Dipika Kunwar in Black Narcissus

Black Narcissus

Based on Rumer Godden’s 1939 novel, Gemma Arterton and Alessandro Nivola are at the helm of mass hysteria at a nunnery in the Himalayas – where desire thwarted by religious repression gradually sends everyone over the edge. Watch out for fantastic newcomer Aisling Franciosi as the delusional Sister Ruth, as well as actors Dipika Kunwar and the late Diana Rigg in her last TV performance. On BBC iPlayer and FX now

Yearly Departed

Billed as “a series of eulogies” to wave off the nightmare that was 2020, this stand-up-comedy special ended the year on a high. The line-up includes comedy golden girls Sarah Silverman, Tiffany Haddish, Rachel Brosnahan and more, armed with one-liners to help us see the funny side of this mess. If you think you’ve heard every 2020 joke possible, this show will deliver – and then some. On Amazon now

Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany in WandaVision

WandaVision

Marvel devotees will rejoice that this six-part spin-off of the big-screen blockbuster, Avengers: Endgame, is finally here. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany are reviving their roles as Wanda Maximoff and Vision, two superheroes struggling to blend in to suburban life and keep a lid on their extraordinary powers. If the trailer is anything to go by, the special effects and costumes will be every bit as showstopping as the big-screen version. On Disney+ now

Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury in Bridgerton

Bridgerton

One lockdown silver lining has been the sudden re-emergence of every period drama ever made – because, after all, what is more comforting than crinoline and questionable hats during a pandemic? Netflix has gone a step further and – with Shonda Rhimes’ production company, Shondaland – created its very own original costume drama set in Regency England and based on the best-selling Julia Quinn novels. Expect love triangles, social scandals and pouting protagonists worthy of any Jane Austen classic. On Netflix now

The Crown

Joining the returning cast of the royal drama for season four – with Olivia Colman and Tobias Menzies still at the helm as Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip – is Gillian Anderson playing Margaret Thatcher, and Emma Corrin making her much-anticipated debut as Princess Diana. The action picks up in the late 1970s, covering the early relationship between Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) and Lady Diana Spencer. In the political arena, there are tensions between the monarch and prime minister, as the nation goes to war in the Falklands. On Netflix now

Olivia Colman in The Crown
Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant in The Undoing

The Undoing

Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant star in this mini series based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’s 2014 novel, You Should Have Known. Kidman plays Grace, a successful therapist and soon-to-be author, “living the only life she ever wanted for herself”, with her husband and son. This life begins to unravel, however, following a horrific death, her husband going missing and an accelerating public disaster. On HBO, Sky Atlantic and Now TV
