The 2010s have given us some great tv shows that will be talked about for years to come but what can we expect from the next decade dominated by streaming services? Here are some of the most anticipated shows to come out of the roaring 20s.
Sex Education Season 2 (Netflix)
Airing 17th of January there’s no better way to start the next decade with a brand-new season of the wildly popular Netflix Original, Sex Education. Starring Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, and Ncuti Gatwa to name a few centers around the students of Moordale, specifically Otis (Asa) and Maeve (Emma) who set up a student sex clinic to help the other students. The show covers various serious points like sexuality and abortion in respectful ways while still being fun and light-hearted. The diverse range of characters means that there will definitely be at least one you can relate to especially with more coming in the next season. Since airing all episodes in January of this year, people have been desperate for more, so thankfully not much longer to wait!
Game of Thrones Targaryen spin-off (HBO)
Arguably the biggest TV show, ever, it’s not surprising that spin-offs were coming from the fantasy juggernaut Game of Thrones. While the final few seasons left a lot to be desired, especially season 8 there are still a lot more stories to tell about the land of Westeros. The first of these shows are going to be set in the age of the first men and show how the Night King came to be. It was rumored to be titled “Bloodmoon” and starring Naomi Watts. However, this show sadly got cancelled but from the ashes, quite literally, came to a new spin-off based on the dragons themselves, House Targaryen. Based around the initial rise to power and history of the Targaryens it looks like this spins off will give us more dragons and more interesting characters to fall in love with, or maybe loathe entirely.
Set to release March 31st, 2020 in the UK, Disney’s new streaming service, which is already in the US, looks to be a serious contender to Netflix thanks to a large library of exclusives and original shows coming to it. Excluding shows like The Mandalorian as it has already aired in the US here a few of the most anticipated shows coming to Disney Plus.
Star Wars Obi-Wan show
Hello there! Everyone’s hopes were fulfilled when it was revealed that we would be getting more of the iconic Star Wars character Obi-Wan Kenobi in the form of a TV show airing November 2020. Thanks to Ewan McGregor set to reprise his iconic role as the Jedi, the hype is building for this show and especially due to the critical success of The Mandalorian means we may be in store for something great. Not much is known about the plot of this new show but rumors have it following episode 3 with Obi Wan’s time in exile and protecting Luke.
The superhero genre has been extremely profitable for Disney so it’s no surprise that with the launch of Disney Plus we will be getting a flood of new shows set around our favourite characters and some new ones. Several have already been announced like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Wanda Vision and What if? But one of the most anticipated ones is definitely Tom Hiddleston’s Loki. Arriving spring 2021, the show will follow the trickster god in his adventures with the tesseract following the events of Avengers: Endgame and how he influences certain historical events. But let’s be honest, regardless of the plot, any opportunity to see Tom Hiddleston as Loki again will be taken with open arms.
