The fifth and final season of critical darling Search Party hits HBO Max this month. Following her near-death experience, Dory enters a very public business partnership with tech billionaire Tunnel Quinn, played by Jeff Goldblum. She folds her friends into the mysterious, altruistic, and cult-like venture. All 10 episodes of the new season will be available at once for easy binging,


Peacemaker

Where: HBO Max
Release date: January 13

The DCEU’s first new streaming series is heading to HBO Max this month. After making a splash in last year’s The Suicide Squad, John Cena’s comically patriotic superhero Peacemaker will get to headline his own show. The series follows the origins of Peacemaker and his uneasy alliance with the US government task force in charge of The Suicide Squad. The Suicide Squad director James Gunn returns as writer of all eight episodes and directs five, including the first.


Wolf Like Me

Where: Peacock
Release date: January 13

Peacock and Australian streamer Stan. have been keeping their cards pretty close on this one. The six-part romantic mystery series sees Isla Fisher and Josh Gad as two characters coming together following the death of Fisher’s character’s husband. There’s clearly something bubbling under the surface here, with dark secrets and intrigue promising some big twists and revelations. We won’t know much more until the show drops on Peacock though.


Hotel Transylvania: Transformania

Where: Amazon Prime Video
Release date: January 14

Fans of the Hotel Transylvania films may be sad this one won’t hit theaters, but the latest film will be available on Amazon Prime Video around the globe on January 14. In this latest title, Van Helsing’s “Monsterification Ray” goes wrong, turning Drac and his monster friends human, while Johnny, in turn, becomes a monster. Now, they have to work together, adjusting to their new mismatched bodies, to find a cure before it’s too late.


How I Met Your Father

Where: Hulu
Release date: January 18

People were naturally a bit skeptical of a new spin on How I Met Your Mother when it was announced. And yet Hulu‘s gender-flipped sitcom reboot starring Hilary Duff looks incredibly charming. Maybe it’s all the bad news of the last two years talking, but the light tone, nostalgic format, and clever banter shown in the trailers make How I Met Your Father look like a delightful new show to follow week to week. It’s one of the most exciting new streaming shows to check out this month.


Ozark season 4

Where: Netflix
Release date: January 21

Part one of the long-awaited final season of Ozark will be one of Netflix’s first new streaming releases of the new year. The season three finale saw the Byrde family getting themselves deeper into the criminal underworld of the Ozarks and reestablishing some degree of control for themselves. The season also ended with Ruth making some shocking discoveries that may put her in direct conflict with the Byrdes. No word yet on when part two of the final season will drop, but part one ought to keep us going for a while longer.


Servant season 3

Where: Apple TV Plus
Release date: January 21

One of the major standouts of Apple TV Plus’ slate of original programming, Servant has been the sleeper hit of the platform. From M. Night Shyamalan, the series follows a grieving couple who find themselves reacquainted with their dead infant son when a mysterious new nanny comes into their lives. Servant is smart, chilling, and completely unpredictable, and the third season is one of the most exciting upcoming shows of 2022.


The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild

Where: Disney Plus
Release date: January 28

Your favorite prehistoric characters are back in the latest Ice Age installment, coming to Disney Plus. When the possum brothers Crash and Eddie strike out on their own in search of a little independence, they find themselves trapped beneath the ice in a massive cave inhabited by dinosaurs. With the help of one-eyed weasel Buck Wild and some new friends, they have to save the Lost World from dinosaurs.


The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window

Where: Netflix
Release date: January 28

The title alone tells you exactly what territory we’re in here. Think The Girl on the Train meets The Woman in the Window, for starters. A shut-in with a drinking problem thinks she’s found a lifeline back into society in the form of new neighbors, but her hopes are dashed when she witnesses a gruesome murder across the street. Or is this all just a misunderstanding? Judging by the trailer, every trope is here: the endless glasses of wine, the overinvested by skeptical cop, the unreliable narrator. Kristen Bell stars in what promises to be a loving ribbing of a massively popular genre.
