It has been a great year for entertainment as a whole, gaming has been thriving through many different genres as these have been popular for those seeking online games of chance, despite the struggling box office movies were able to find a temporary home in online streaming platforms with video-on-demand growing, and TV shows have continued to provide a great escape for those looking for a way to unwind at the end of the day. With the year coming to a close, there are still some great shows and movies to catch on the biggest streaming platforms in the coming weeks – so which are some of the best to look out for?
The Book of Boba Fett – The Mandalorian was certainly one of the stand-out shows that came to Disney+ throughout 2019 and 2020, and with the arrival of an iconic Star Wars bounty hunter later on in the series, Disney have decided to double down on the success by bringing Boba Fett’s own story. The first episode will stream on 29th of December and will look to continue that same tradition of rounding out the year with a great show in the Star Wars universe.
The Witcher – Henry Cavill portrayed a brilliant Geralt of Rivia in the first season adapted by Netflix, as many would expect given his acting chops and passion for the source material. Netflix were so confident in the first season it was renewed for a second before the first episode even aired, and the second season will finally arrive on December 17th – there have been some alterations to costumes that were a bit strange in the first season, but it certainly looks like it’ll be a great continuation from the first season. It is only eight episodes long, but Cavill has promised plenty of excitement and cliff-hangers along the way which could give fans plenty of anticipation for a potential third season.
The Expanse – Dubbed as perhaps the best sci-fi show running at the moment and has had a brilliant run with the previous five seasons being extremely consistent on what the show is able to deliver. Although the show had to part ways with one of its core cast members, season six has continued to deliver on the same experience that has become known for the show – and whilst this sixth season is where the show will end, it’ll certainly leave sci-fi fans wanting more. Currently already streaming on Prime, it’s a great way to get the holiday season started.
Whilst there are some big movies to come to streaming platforms too, unfortunately, many of the big studios have reserved their Christmas releases for cinemas directly, and here’s to hoping box office hits can find a straight to streaming release in the future again.
