Rotten Tomatoes’ premiere dates calendar keeps track of the most anticipated new 2020 TV premieres and your favorite returning shows. Bookmark this page to get updates on network schedules, when the latest Netflix series launch, when Disney+ shows will premiere, what films and specials are coming your way, and more. 


Black Mirror’s Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones have some parting shots for this awful year. Their Netflix special, aptly titled Death to 2020, premieres Dec. 27 and is a mockumentary featuring stars like Samuel L. Jackson, Lisa Kudrow, and Leslie Jones portraying fictional characters who discuss real events that happened over this very long and exhausting year.


The remaining episodes of the final season of Vikings will arrive on December 30. But, in a twist, they will premiere on Amazon Prime Video instead of original channel History, which will air them at a later date. The first 10 episodes of the season aired earlier this year on the cable channel and have a 100% Tomatometer score. Interestingly, sequel series Vikings: Valhalla, set 100 years after the events of the original series, is in development for Netflix by Vikings creator Michael Hirst and The Fugitive writer Jeb Stuart.


Can Diana Prince save Christmas? Warner Bros. has decided to release Wonder Woman 1984 on both HBO Max and in theaters on Christmas Day. The previous Wonder Woman movie, which was released in 2017, has a 93% Tomatometer score and is Certified Fresh.

The 2019 E! People’s Choice Awards were held in Santa Monica, California, Sunday and it was a big night for the Avengers and the team behind Netflix’s Stranger ThingsAvengers: Endgame took home a slew of awards, which is no surprise given its box office performance, including Movie of 2019, Action Movie of 2019, as well as gongs for Robert Downey Jr. (Male Movie Star of 2019) and Tom Holland (Action Movie Star of 2019). On the TV/streaming front, the Duffer Bros.’ Stranger Things won Show of 2019 and Drama Show of 2019, and Millie Bobby Brown was named the Female TV Star of 2019. Other big winners on the night were Ellen DeGeneres, Zendaya, Cole Sprouse, and After – with just 17% on the Tomatometer – which took home the prize for Best Drama Movie of 2019, beating out the likes of Once Upon A Time in Hollywood and Rocketman. Sorry, Tomatometer: the people have spoken.

Writer, director, and producer Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman, Monster, I Am the Night) has agreed to enter a multi-year overall deal to produce new series exclusively at Netflix.

“I’m so excited to embark on a great journey of making the new world of television with a company and group of people I admire as much as Ted, Cindy, Channing, Peter and the team at Netflix,” Jenkins said in a statement. “I look forward to digging in to some great work together soon.”

Jenkins is currently working on Wonder Woman 1984, the sequel to her $820-million grossing 2017 superhero film.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Patty Jenkins to Netflix. Her trailblazing work has pushed boundaries and she confidently tells stories that leave an unforgettable mark. We look forward to fostering her many ideas and helping them come to life,” Netflix Vice President of Original Series Channing Dungey said in a statement.

The deal is valued at $10 million over three years, Variety reported.

In addition to the already announced One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest prequel Ratched, starring Sarah Paulson, and The Politician premiering September 27, Ryan Murphy told Time Magazine about seven more streaming shows he is producing for Netflix.

Murphy is adapting two Broadway musicals: A Chorus Line as a 10-episode series and The Prom as a feature starring Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman. Ewan McGregor is set to star as fashion designer Halston in a Murphy miniseries, while Patti Lupone and Holland Taylor are slated for the sex industry drama Hollywood.

“Jessica Lange and I are working on a piece about Marlene Dietrich in Vegas in the early ’60s,” he told Time. “But I’m so booked. When am I going to do it? I don’t know.”

He’s also developing documentaries, including a 10-part Andy Warhol series and the film A Secret Love about an octogenarian couple coming out as lesbians.

The sofa from Central Perk on Friends is going on a world tour to celebrate the landmark sitcom’s 25th anniversary. Wherever you are, the sofa will be there for you to take selfies with up to two of your closest friends, maybe four if you skooch together.

Complete tour dates here but some of the major destinations include the Grand Canyon; Empire State Building; London’s Tower Bridge, London Eye and Abby Road; Burj Khalifa in Dubai (the one Tom Cruise climbed in Mission: Impossible); Comic-Con Africa; and the Tribeca TV, Toronto and Venice Film Festivals.

The sofa appears in multiple places simultaneously, so is it possible some of those are not the actual screen- used sofa? Or can the Friends sofa fold space and time? It is magical, you know.

You can’t keep Kevin James off TV for too long. Kevin Can Wait ended in its third season last spring, so it only took James about a year to line up a new show. This time it’s for Netflix, for which he starred in True Memoirs of an International Assassin.

The Crew stars James as the crew chief in a NASCAR garage. It will still feel familiar to King of Queens fans because it will be a multi-camera situation comedy, James will face off against millennials who think technology can fix everything. NASCAR has two executive producers on the series too.
