Sex Education

Otis Milburn is the perfect portrait of an awkward adolescent: he’s shy, he knows next to nothing about girls, and his sex-therapist mother—played by the always brilliant Gillian Anderson—won’t stop talking about masturbation. Otis takes a dose of career inspiration from his mom, cashing in on his peers’ cluelessness by establishing an underground therapy clinic. As his high school’s unofficial sex guru, he finds himself scrambling to answer questions about a “wanking addiction,” out-of-control pubes and sexual identity. January 11. 

A Series of Unfortunate Events, season 3

The 2004 movie adaptation of Lemony Snicket’s 13-book series was a bit of a flop. But Netflix swooped in and revived the story’s cinematic potential, sticking closely to the original story without losing its meta humour or quirks. Season two ended on a literal cliffhanger: the older siblings, Violet and Klaus, were sent tumbling down a mountain in a rogue circus kart, while the youngest Baudelaire orphan fell into the clutches of Count Olaf (played by an unrecognizable Neil Patrick Harris). In the final season, the orphan trio pieces together the mysterious death of their parents, all while doing what they do best: escaping death and outsmarting every adult who gets in their way. Available now. 

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, season 4 part 2

Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s beloved Netflix sitcom about an eccentric, happy-go-lucky cult escapee who restarts her life in New York City was put on hold mid-season while Fey produced her Tony-nominated Mean Girls musical on Broadway, but now it’s back on track for its series finale. The last episode of season four left off with Kimmy Schmidt (the indefatigable Ellie Kemper) being watched by mysterious spies. Their motives are unclear, but whatever they’re up to, it isn’t looking good for Kimmy and her zany friends. January 25. 

Black Earth Rising

This eight-part thriller centring around the Rwandan genocide was a huge hit when it premiered on the BBC last fall. Created by Hugo Blick (The Honourable Woman, Shadow Line), known for his complex takes on global conspiracy theories, the show follows the story of Kate Ashby (played by Black Mirror‘s Michaela Coel), a Rwandan-born legal investigator who was rescued from the devastating aftermath of the genocide as a child. Now, she’s on a mission to prosecute some of the deadliest war criminals in the world. January 25. 

Tidying Up with Marie Kondo

The cult-followed Japanese organizing consultant Marie Kondo has been an enthusiastic tidier since she was a kid. When all of her peers went to gym class, she would stay behind to organize the bookshelves in the classroom. Following the success of her best-selling 2014 book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Kondo is making her TV debut as the host of a new reality show. In what’s essentially a Queer Eye meets Hoarders spinoff, Kondo shares her signature method of organizing—sorting one’s belongings into categories and tossing anything that doesn’t spark joy—with those in desperate need of some help. In the eight-episode season, she’ll visit a couple expecting a baby, a family trying to downsize their home and a grieving widow struggling to get rid of her husband’s old belongings. Available now.
