Ten TV shows premiering in January to keep you busy
/ NBC

Over the past couple of years, networks and streamers alike saw an unexpected spike in viewing habits as the Covid-19 pandemic forced the closing of movie theaters, nationwide. It isn’t surprising that more time at home means more hours sitting in front of the TV. And with so little to do, who can blame you.

But with so many great shows released each month, it can sometimes be hard to keep up track of it all. That’s why we thought it would be a good idea to remind you of ten series premièring in January that you might not want to miss.

This Is Us isn’t the only hit show ending this year. The upcoming Season 8 of ABC sitcom Black-ish will, unfortunately, be the final outing for the series. Creator Kenya Barris announced the news via Instagram, writing, "In this day and age it is rare to get to decide when your show should come to an end, and we are grateful along with ABC to be able to make this final season exactly what we'd hoped for — and to do it with the entire and AMAZINGLY STELLAR cast coming back to close this chapter out with us the right way!"

Euphoria (9:00 p.m.) HBO | January 9

The gritty teen HBO drama that sparked a resurgence of glitter eye shadow is back! Fresh on the heels of Zendaya's history-making win at the 72nd Annual Emmys— the drama finally makes a return this month after the second season was postponed, no thanks to COVID-19. The official plot for Euphoria season 2 is pretty mum, but the official trailer at least gives fans a broad sense of what to expect.

Superman & Lois (8:00 p.m.) The CW | January 11

Superman & Lois returns to The CW this month! The CW has released the official synopsis for "What Lies Beneath," the season 2 premiere, which is set to air on the network on January 11. The episode picks up with the characters still reeling from the events of the season one finale, and everyone facing a new status quo.  It seems relationship issues are the word of the day, with Lois and Clark struggling for unexplained reasons (likely to do with Lois's other-dimensional daughter showing up at the end of last season), Adam jealous of Lana's relationship with a political candidate, and Jordan and Sarah's relationship threatened by the ever-present weight of the Kent family secrets.

Peacemaker - HBO Max | January 13

If you watched The Suicide Squad, you know what to expect from the upcoming series created by James Gunn for HBO Max. Based on the DC Comics character of the same name, Peacemaker stars John Cena as the title character, reprising his role from the popular 2020 film. Peacemaker is but one of DC’s offerings this year that is part of the DC Extended Universe. The eight-episode series explores the origins of the character and his subsequent missions.
