A fresh batch of highly-anticipated shows is in for your viewing pleasure.
Twenty-twenty-three is kicking off with a brand new roster of binge-worthy series. Streaming giant Netflix has been keeping viewers on their feet, especially with the news that the hit show Wednesday, which now ranks as the second most streamed show on the platform behind Stranger Things, is being picked up for a second season set to release within the year.
This month sees a whole crop of fan favorites return for new seasons, such as the fashion-filled, Emily In Paris. Not enough glamour to fill your screen? Worry not, a third iteration of the hit show following the real-life Crazy Rich Asians is coming soon. After the success of the original Bling Empire set in Los Angeles, which saw a cameo by the Philippines’ own Heart Evangelista, comes Bling Empire: New York. Unlike the off-shore spin-off in Dubai, this version features several of the original cast, including Dorothy Wang.
After some delay, the much-awaited return of the mother-daughter comedy-drama Ginny & Georgia is finally out, ready to satisfy viewers who were left with quite the cliffhanger during the season one finale. Likewise, if the turn of the calendar hasn’t made you feel old yet, a new series with a title familiar to many is coming to Netflix: That ’90s Show.
The story picks up two decades after the events of the popular sitcom That ’70s Show. Several members of the original cast are also set to join the spin-off, including Topher Grace, Mila Kunis, and Ashton Kutcher.
