This week’s new shows are all about single 20-somethings trying to figure out dating and adulting, whether they’re hapless white ladies, recovering alcoholics or people on the autism spectrum. There’s also lots of crime and creepy magic returning to our screens. Here’s what to add to your watchlist this week:
How I Met Your Father
Hilary Duff stars in this remake/reboot/riff on hit CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother, with Kim Cattrall appearing as the future version of the same character and narrating all the dating shenanigans. Streaming on Hulu January 18.
Single Drunk Female
Imagine attempting to do Dry January year-round and for the rest of your life! Samantha (Sofia Black-D’Elia), the twenty-something heroine of this new comedy from the executive producers of Girls and Russian Doll, is trying to do just that. Forced to move back in with her mother (Ally Sheedy), she’ll face the daily indignities of getting sober and putting her life back together. Premieres January 20 on Freeform and streaming the next day on Hulu.
The two-part final season of this crime drama picks up right where Season 3 left off. Reeling from a very sudden death, money laundering couple Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy (Laura Linney) are about to get in even deeper with the Navarro drug cartel. But their new arrangement puts them at odds with former protégé Ruth (Julia Garner). Streaming January 21 on Netflix.
This wild horror/drama from director M. Night Shyamalan is truly one of the most unhinged shows on TV right now. The new season opens three months after the events of Season 2, with baby Jericho once again resurrected (or whatever) and safely back with parents Dorothy (Lauren Ambrose) and Sean (Toby Kebbell). Mysterious nanny Leanne (Nell Tiger Free) is back too, which means the sinister cult she escaped from is probably lurking close at hand. I wouldn’t call Servant a good show, but it’s oddly compelling thanks largely to Ambrose’s off-the-wall performance. Premieres January 21 on AppleTV+.
As We See It
This sweet dramedy from the executive producer of Friday Night Lights and Parenthood isn’t your typical show about twentysomething roommates. Jack (Rick Glassman), Harrison (Albert Rutecki) and Violet (Sue Ann Pien) are all on the autism spectrum. Streaming January 21 on Amazon Prime
With Bobby Axelrod off the board (Damian Lewis left the show at the end of last season), U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) has a new billionaire in his sites: Corey Stoll’s Michael Prince. Premieres January 23 on Showtime.
