AJ and the Queen

If 11 seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race—plus the new Celebrity Drag Race—don’t offer quite enough rhinestone-encrusted realness to get you through the first half of 2020, this series, starring the mother of drag herself, will certainly do the trick. Created by RuPaul and Sex and the City writer Michael Patrick King, the show follows Ruby Red, a down-on-her-luck performer who dreams of opening her own drag club, until she’s duped by a charismatic con artist. Instead of sashaying away from her dreams, Ruby Red packs up a rundown RV and goes on tour with an unlikely accomplice—a sassy 11-year-old stowaway. When it comes to casting, Ru is keeping it in the family: she’ll be joined by 22 former Drag Race queens, including Miss Vanjie, Katya, Bianca Del Rio, Latrice Royale and Trinity The Tuck.

Grace and Frankie, Season 6

The good news for Grace and Frankie fans is that the countdown to season 6 is almost up, and the even better news is that a few months ago, showrunners announced that it was renewed for another season. The bad news is that season 7 will be its last. Dolly Parton stans take note: there are rumours floating around that the Queen of Nashville might make an appearance for a long-awaited 9 to 5 reunion.

Uncut Gems

Every so often, Adam Sandler shows off his acting chops, and he’s getting major buzz for his performance in this gritty crime comedy. Directed by brothers Josh and Benny Safdie, the film tells the story of Howard Ratner, a seedy New York jeweller and compulsive gambler. In an attempt to keep the loan sharks at bay, he hopes to auction off a valuable chunk of rock containing raw black opals for a cool $300,000—but not before his schemes lands him in trouble with his family, his vicious business partners and former NBA star Kevin Garnett, who plays himself. January 31

 

Sex Education, Season 2

Teenage Otis Milburn spent the first season of Sex Education advising fellow teens on issues like out-of-control pubes, sexual identity and abortion while ignoring his own problems. This time, he’ll have to take some of his own advice—or even listen to his sex therapist mother, much to his horror—as he fumbles through his first-ever relationship. Also on the horizon: a Chlamydia outbreak and a secret brewing relationship between Otis’s mom and his new girlfriend’s dad. January 17

Spinning Out

This new drama series, starring Kaya Scodelario as aspiring Olympic figure skater Kat Baker, is full of twists and turns—both on and off the ice. When Kat’s solo career is derailed after a serious fall, she turns to pairs skating for a Blades of Glory–style shot at redemption. The show features real-life Olympian Johnny Weir as Kat’s rival and a cameo from Queer Eye’s ray of sunshine Jonathan Van Ness, who promises to serve “ice-skating realness.” (And if you haven’t been following the #JVNSKATES chronicles on Instagram, you should.)
