The Witcher prequel, the third season of Emily in Paris, and Jessica Chastain as a country music legend.

Slow Horses (Season 2)

When: Dec. 2

Following Gary Oldman's announcement that might soon be retiring from film, many now have yet another reason to watch Slow Horses, a spy drama that could very well be the last in the actor's career.

The series, based on Mitch Herron novels, is about a little-known branch of the British Secret Intelligence Service that operatives get exiled to after major screw-ups. One day, they get a chance to take a break from the drudgery of endless paper-pushing and prove their worth to their superiors: everything is at stake as the Slow Horses crew makes every effort to avoid eating humble pie once again.

George & Tammy

When: December 4.

This four-part miniseries about the lives of country music legends George Jones and Tammy Wynette is one of the most anticipated projects of the year. The pair both had successful careers, but their marriage was often a struggle. They are brilliantly portrayed by Jessica Chastain and Michael Shannon

His Dark Materials (Season 3)

When: December 5.

The final season of the adaptation of Philip Pullman’s series of novels about the adventures of a plucky girl in an alternate reality ruled by clerics is based on the third book in the series, Amber Spyglass, in which Lyra and Will travel to the land of the dead and Marisa Coulter teams up with Lord Asriel for a final battle that sees the forces of the earth face off those of heaven.


When: December 18.

The series is a prequel to Paramount Network’s Yellowstone and a sequel to 1883.

It stars Harrison Ford, an actor that every millennial has a soft spot for. The story once again follows the Dutton family, who own a large range near Yellowstone, specifically the generation that survives the Prohibition and the Great Depression. In this outing, Harrison Ford is joined by another Hollywood heavyweight, Helen Mirren.

Emily in Paris (Season 3)

When: December 21.

The story of Emily Cooper, a clueless American discovering Paris, continues.

The second season ended with Emily having to make two difficult choices at once, in her career and in her romantic life. If you haven’t seen the first two seasons yet, we highly recommend bingeing them, they’re a delight. And you’ve got plenty of time to catch up, seeing how season 3 is still almost three weeks away. The writers for the show include Darren Star of Sex and the City fame.

I Hate Suzie (Season 2)

When: Dec. 22

After a Hollywood star had her iCloud account hacked and personal photos published in 2014, it was only a matter of time before the story was made into a series.

It took six long years, but finally, 2020 saw the release of I Hate Suzie, which follows the fallout from the incident in an honest and somewhat ironic fashion. It is our earnest hope that after the two-year hiatus, the authors will be following up with an equally hard-hitting sequel.

The Witcher: Blood Origin

When: Dec. 25

Based on Andrzej Sapkowski's novels, the Witcher was a huge success with critics and audiences, so its creators decided to expand the universe.

The new mini-series focuses on events that took place 1200 years before the Witcher: the Conjunction of the Spheres, the creation of the first Witcher, and the ancient Elven civilization before its demise.
