As we kick off a new year, it's important to remember there is no better distraction from all the real-life dramas of the world than what streaming has to offer. And this month, that includes tons of nostalgia (Harry Potter 20th Anniversary, The Many Saints of Newark), mind-bending epics (The Tragedy of Macbeth, Eternals), and edge-of-your-seat thrillers (Ozark, Servant). Just about anything to keep that mind busy.

Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts

There's nothing as sweet as seeing Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson reunite to talk all things Harry Potter as they celebrate the popular series' anniversary. What better way to ring in the new year than a hit of nostalgia? (You can also stream all eight movies on Crave anytime.)

Watch on Saturday, January 1 on Crave.

The Many Saints of Newark

A must for Sopranos fans, this movie stars James Gandolfini's son Michael as a young Tony Soprano learning the mafia ropes from his uncle, Dickie Moltisanti (Alessandro Nivola). If you need a refresher or you're a newbie, all six seasons of The Sopranos are also currently available to stream on Crave. Get started!

Watch on Friday, January 7 on Crave.

Search Party, Season 5

Life is a lot less funny without regular doses of Dory, Drew, Elliott and Portia -- the foursome accused of a terrible crime, bumbling their way to innocence or something like it. Thank god the fifth season has finally arrived. (Stream seasons 1 - 4 on Crave now.)

Watch on Friday, January 7 on Crave.

The Tender Bar

Ben Affleck has been everywhere this past year – on the screen, in the tabloids, in the arms of Jennifer Lopez. His latest is The Tender Bar, which is also George Clooney's latest directorial project, and it's already got some very positive buzz surrounding it. The story is simple: a young boy sees his uncle, a bartender, as his new father figure after his dad disappears. Prepare for tears.

Watch on Friday, January 7 on Amazon Prime.

Euphoria, Season 2

It's been a long wait, but the eight-episode second season of Euphoria is now here, starring Emmy-winner Zendaya, who plays 17-year-old Rue as she battles love, loss and addiction. Warning: teenage drama has never been so melodramatic. (Stream season 1 and the two bonus episodes on Crave now.)

Watch on Sunday, January 9 on Crave.

The Righteous Gemstones, Season 2

It's impossible for this series to not be as hilarious as it is, as it stars Danny McBride, John Goodman, Edi Patterson, and Adam Devine, and follows a famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed, and charitable work as they battle to protect their empire from destruction by outsiders. Call it chaotic at best. (Stream season 1 on Crave now.)

Watch on Sunday, January 9 on Crave.


One of Marvel's biggest recent tentpoles has finally hit streaming. This one has a stellar diverse cast, including Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, and Salma Hayek, and was directed by Oscar-winner Chloe Zhao. The story follows a team of heroes forced to reunite and protect the world when long-dead evil creatures make their return.

Watch on Wednesday, January 12 on Disney Plus.

The Tragedy of Macbeth

Listen, we all know the story of Macbeth. But with Joel Coen's version, we get to see it with a whole new sheen, starring legends Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand in Oscar-worthy performances.

Watch on Friday, January 14 on Apple TV+.

Somebody, Somewhere

If you're not already familiar with comedian Bridget Everett, now is the time. She just scored her very own show -- a seven-episode comedy series that sees her play a woman living in Kansas but struggling to fit the hometown mold. Fortunately, singing is her saving grace.

Watch on Sunday, January 16 on Crave.

Too Hot To Handle, Season 3

It's the reality show that eased us gently and hotly into the pandemic and is still holding us in its arms as times take yet another turn. What better medicine is there than watching gorgeous singles compete for a prize – which they'll win if they can just manage to keep their hands off each other. Yeah. Right.

Watch on Wednesday, January 19 on Netflix.

Servant, Season 3

As one of the more underrated series of the last couple years, Servant deserves your time – especially if you like a little bit of horror before bed. M. Night Shyamalan's half-hour series follows a couple in mourning after losing their child – or did they? Things take a sinister turn when they hire a young nanny with a few special quirks.

Watch on Friday, January 21 on Apple TV+.

Ozark, Season 4, Part 1

Almost two years after season 3 (and one hell of a cliffhanger) the final season of Ozark has finally arrived. This one will be split in two and, honestly, the more the better. That's about all we know about the new episodes, with star, producer, oft-director and Emmy-winner Jason Bateman promising it will end "with a bang."

Watch on Friday, January 21 on Netflix.

A Hero

Asghar Farhadi's latest is bound to be a must watch. It follows a man in prison who tries to get the charges against him dropped during a two-day leave. Of course, things get messy.

Watch on Friday, January 21 on Amazon Prime.

As We See It, Season 1

This new Amazon series follows three roommates on the autism spectrum who find themselves traversing through life and all its obstacles together, from making friends to finding jobs. It's your warm-hearted watch of the month.

Watch on Friday, January 21 on Amazon Prime.

Billions, Season 6

Billions may no longer have Damian Lewis, but leads Paul Giamatti, Corey Stoll, and Maggie Siff are still going strong – as is all the drama. (Watch seasons 1 - 5 on Crave now.)

Watch on Sunday, January 23 on Crave.

The Gilded Age

An absolute must-watch, The Gilded Age oozes promise with its cast alone, which includes Carrie Coon, Cynthia Nixon, and Christine Baranski. Call it a delayed Christmas gift. The nine-episode drama follows a period in America when there was major change – when it comes to the economy, and societal mores.

Watch on Monday, January 24 on Crave.

Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness

Your favourite Queer Eye host has got their own show, and it's been a long time coming. The series expands on JVN's popular podcast of the same name, and each episode will see the beloved host go deep on a different subject – with their signature flair.

Watch on Friday, January 28 on Netflix.

The Woman In The House Across The Street From The Girl In The Window

A parody of a few different, recent (and not so great) woman-centred thrillers, including The Woman in the Window and The Girl on the Train, this miniseries stars Kristen Bell as one such gal who thinks she's spotted a crime. And yes, she loves herself some wine.

Watch on Friday, January 28 on Netflix.

We Need To Talk About Cosby

A key part of the #MeToo movement, Bill Cosby's sexual assault allegations have been a big conversation for quite some time. In this four-part docu-series, Emmy-winning director W. Kamau Bell explores Cosby's legacy: from America's dad to sexual predator, and weighs his actions against his massive influence, with interviews from cultural experts, and some of the women who have come out against Cosby.

Watch on Sunday, January 30 on Crave.

Hidden Gem of the Month: Student Bodies

If you grew up in the '90s in Canada, then this – and Breaker High – were everything to you as a kid. All three seasons of the series, which follows the pretty and chaotic staff of a weekly high-school newspaper, is available now for you to stream. The theme song alone will take you back.

Now streaming on CTV Throwback.
