Netflix has set February 7 for the premiere of Locke and Key, the Carlton Cuse–produced adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s IDW comic book series that has been in development for more than a decade. The mystery series revolves around the Locke family, three siblings and their mother who move into their ancestral home – Keyhouse – after the murder of their father. Keyhouse, as the Lockes quickly discover, is filled with magical keys that hold special powers. That draws out a demon who wants to steal the keys, which may have played a role in the murder of the Locke paterfamilias. The series stars Darby Stanchfield (Scandal), Jackson Robert Scott (IT), and Connor Jessup (American Crime).



The Thirteenth Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) returns with the launch of season 12 on Wednesday, January 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT with friends Ryan (Tosin Cole), Yasmin (Mandip Gill) and Graham (Bradley Walsh). Subsequent episodes will air Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT beginning January 5 on BBC America. The season kicks off with a two-part episode entitled “Spyfall.”



Last season on The Magicians, magic was saved, but at a terrible cost: Quentin Coldwater died heroically to save his friends — and the world. Julia (Stella Maeve), Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley), Eliot (Hale Appleman), Margo (Summer Bishil), Penny (Arjun Gupta), and their friends (and frenemies) must learn to navigate a world without him. In season 5, premiering January 15 at 10 p.m. ET/9C, a new threat has arisen: in freeing magic, the balance tipped the other way and there’s too damn much of it. As the excess builds, an apocalypse looms.



Cantankerous Larry David returns for season 10 of his HBO drama in January. Vince Vaughn joins the fun in a multi-episode arc.



Better Call Saul will return with a two-night premiere event on February 23 and 24, 2020. The fifth season will premiere on Sunday, February 23 at 10 p.m. ET/9C following a new episode of The Walking Dead. The season will continue the next night, Monday, February 24, with an encore presentation of the season premiere at 8 p.m. ET/7C followed by the season’s second episode at 9 p.m. ET/8C. Subsequent episodes will air Monday nights at 9 p.m. ET/8C. The new season will find Bob Odenkirk’s Jimmy McGill finally embracing his Saul Goodman persona to practice law, and the fallout that ensues for everyone around him, including fellow attorney and girlfriend Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), fixer Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks), meth kingpin/restauranteur Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), and Jimmy’s criminal associate Nacho Varga (Michael Mando).

2019 Winter TV Scorecard

Thanks to cable networks and streaming services, we don’t have to wait until the traditional September-to-May network TV season to watch quality programming. The first three months of 2019 brought a total of 90 new TV series, seasons, and movies that made this list, along with 37 Certified Fresh shows.

The final update included the returns of critically acclaimed series including The O.A., The Good Fight, Jane the Virgin, Veep, and Barry; a batch of new shows including NBC’s The Village and Abby’s, Netflix’s Love, Death & Robots, Hulu’s The Act, FX’s What We Do in the Shadows, and Amazon’s Hanna; and Netflix movie The Dirt and comedy special Amy Schumer Growing. Also on the list: Billions season 4, Santa Clarita Diet season 3, and the miniseries Mrs. Wilson.

Which series came out on top? That would be Netflix’s recently cancelled sitcom One Day at a Time, which is currently searching for a new home.

The list below tracks every new TV season or streaming movie from the last few months of winter (Jan. 1 through March 31) that got at least 10 critic reviews for TV shows and 20 critic reviews for movies. (If you’re wondering why your favorite show isn’t on here, it likely just didn’t have enough season reviews to qualify under our criteria.)

Polar (2019)

Adjusted Score: 21082%
Critics Consensus: An action thriller starring Mads Mikkelsen as the world's most dangerous assassin should be terrifically entertaining, but Polar proves it's possible to ruin anything if you try.

Directed By: Jonas Akerlund

Critics Consensus: The jury finds Proven Innocent -- on the charges of saddling fine actors with clunky dialogue, padding out its storylines with stale plot contrivances, and wasting viewers' time with rote procedural formula -- guilty on all counts.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club lacks the trashy joie de vivre of similar reality shows in large part because of the titular character's lack of screen time.

Close (2019)
37%

#85
Adjusted Score: 38298%
Critics Consensus: Close puts a welcome female-fronted spin on the prototypical action thriller; unfortunately, the rest of the movie's ingredients are tediously predictable.
Synopsis: After an attempted kidnapping, a counter-terrorism expert is assigned to safeguard a wealthy young heiress.... [More]
Directed By: Vicky Jewson

#84

The Dirt (2019)
36%

#84
Adjusted Score: 39857%
Critics Consensus: The Dirt celebrates the rude debauchery that Mötley Crüe's fans enjoy -- but does so with the dispiriting lack of substance that the group's critics have long decried.
Synopsis: The misfits of Mötley Crüe rise from the streets of Hollywood to the heights of international fame in the 1980s.... [More]
Directed By: Jeff Tremaine

Fam: Season 1 (2019)
40%

#83
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite an appealing cast, FAM flounders under the weight of its sitcom stylings, drowning much of its potential in a sea of familiar jokes that don't serve its progressive premise.

#82
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite going too far into virgin territory, the 23rd season of The Bachelor manages to mix it up thanks to a particularly eccentric group of contestants.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite a set of stellar performances led by the capable Jennifer Carpenter, The Enemy Within stumbles into an overly formulaic narrative that fails to produce any real spark.

#80
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Poor writing and predictable plot twists dampen Turn Up Charlie's fun premise -- but those looking for a breezy sitcom starring the perennially cool Idris Elba may find themselves tapping along to its good natured beats.
Directed By: Tristram Shapeero

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Defying all tropes of the reality competition genre, The Masked Singer manages to be both magnetically apocalyptic and inexplicably boring.

#78
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: White Dragon boasts a visually striking setting and a commanding central presence in John Simm, but this neon noir is hobbled by a mystery that doesn't hook and a reliance on its Hong Kong backdrop that arguably borders on cultural exploitation.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Roswell, New Mexico admirably adds modern political context to its premise, but this reboot hews too closely to its predecessor to transcend the pitfalls of a redundant retread.

#76
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Black Monday zips with irrepressible style and a seductively stacked cast of charismatics stars - but this Wall Street odyssey is too preoccupied with flash to ferment its needed substance.
Directed By: Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg

#75
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: American Gods retains its bombastic style but loses its divine inspiration in a derivative second season that, after a change in show-runners and even some crucial cast members, feels like a false idol.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Punisher's second season leaves fans torn between the undeniably action-packed fun and the underwhelming portrayal of the charismatic Frank Castle.

The Widow: Season 1 (2019)
57%

#73
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Ferociously ambitious, The Widow boasts Kate Beckinsale's killer action chops but goes astray in a jungle of problematic tropes and unsatisfying twists.

#72
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Strong performances from leads Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Saniyya Sidney can't course correct The Passage's wayward plot and feeble tone.

#71
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite well executed action and smart casting, Deadly Class struggles to meet the mark set by other spooky teen shows.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Project Blue Book will likely intrigue fans of the paranormal with its loose adaptation of historically unexplained phenomena, but this buttoned-down series lacks the narrative verve to appeal beyond the true believers.

Flack: Season 1 (2019)
73%

#69
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Audiences looking for an arsenic cookie of a series may cut Flack some slack, but its cynical take on publicity is exacerbated by hyperbolically unpleasant, underdeveloped characters.
Directed By: Peter Cattaneo

Hanna: Season 1 (2019)
67%

#68
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A gritty reimagining of the 2011 film, Hanna adds new wrinkles to the mythology and texture to the titular assassin -- though the series' long-winded journey may try the patience of viewers who want their violent fables concise.

Abby's: Season 1 (2019)
70%

#67
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Despite some early watered down humor, Abby's brims with potential thanks to its easy going, goofy sensibility and a perfectly cast Natalie Morales.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A visual collage of dot com history, Valley of Boom proves to be just as sprawling and ramshackle as the docuseries' subject.

#65
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: After Life's first season teeters tonally between dark comedy and affecting drama, but Ricky Gervais' poignant performance illuminates new sides of the actor's talent.
Directed By: Duncan Hayes

Schooled: Season 1 (2019)
73%

#64
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Schooled's freshman outing struggles to differentiate itself from its predecessor -- though its sweetly silly sensibilities and stellar cast may be enough for viewers looking for a good-natured sitcom.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Chris Pine inhabits I Am the Night with the roguish gravitas befitting a noir -- even if this entry into the pulp genre is more straightforward and languidly paced than some viewers would like.

#62
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: More charming than clever, Miracle Workers functions as a palatable showcase of Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi's quirky star power.

#61
#61
Adjusted Score: 71615%
Critics Consensus: Amy Schumer's standup matures in an hour filled with concise insights into aging and matrimony, marked with only slight Growing pains as the comedian refreshes her comedic voice.
Synopsis: Amy Schumer gives a refreshingly honest and hilarious take on marriage, pregnancy and personal growth in her new Netflix comedy... [More]
Starring: Amy Schumer
Directed By: Amy Schumer

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Though its animation leaves something to be desired, Watership Down is a faithful adaptation that will resonate with viewers of any age.

#59
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Marrying filmmaker Gregg Araki's frisky style with heady conspiracies and literary allusions, Now Apocalypse's bodacious aesthetics and philosophical pondering may prove too deliberately offbeat and garish for some.

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: This animated anthology has enough creative Death to satisfy cyberpunk aficionados who Love their Robots to have some Heavy Metal influence, but the series' lofty ambitions are often undercut by a preoccupation with gore and titillation.

#57
Adjusted Score: 81000%
Critics Consensus: Alex Gibey's The Inventor declines to outright condemn the actions by Theranos founder Elizabeth Holmes, but instead provides a comprehensive overview of the scandal that allows viewers to mull over its implications towards the broader Silicon Valley.
Synopsis: With a new invention that promised to revolutionize blood testing, Elizabeth Holmes became the world's youngest self-made billionaire, heralded as... [More]
Directed By: Alex Gibney

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: The Umbrella Academy unfurls an imaginative yarn with furtive emotion and an exceptionally compelling ensemble, but the series' dour sensibility often clashes with its splashy genre trappings.

Directed By: Greg Brenman

Directed By: Toby Haynes

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: A worthy Serial supplement that isn't without flaws, The Case Against Adnan Syed fleshes out the life of Hae Min Lee and gives context to in the complicated boon of true crime entertainment.

Lorena: Season 1 (2019)
83%

#50
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Fascinating and frustrating, Lorena's ample footage and fresh perspective on a long-mocked moment provide welcome context and vindication to the woman at its center -- even if its reenactments don't quite measure up.
Starring:

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Fun, feisty, and fueled by the chemistry between its charismatic leads, Whiskey Cavalier overcomes its familiar structure to deliver an attractive take on a well-worn formula.

Pure: Season 1 (2019)
82%

#48
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Pure sidesteps the seedy pratfalls of its ribald premise to instead compassionately explore the complications of compulsion, shame, and struggling to make sense of oneself.

Informer: Season 1 (2018)

Directed By: Jonny Campbell

#45
Adjusted Score: 86071%
Critics Consensus: Girl uses one aspiring dancer's story as the framework for a poignant drama that approaches its difficult themes with fittingly alluring grace.

Directed By: Lukas Dhont

Gotham: Season 5 (2019)
85%

#44
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Gotham concludes in a glorious free-for-all that takes full advantage of the series' dense roster of colorful villains, making for an extended climax that is equal parts daffy and thrilling.

#43
Adjusted Score: 89263%
Critics Consensus: The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind earns its predictably uplifting arc through strong performances and impressive work from debuting director Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Synopsis: A 13-year-old boy is thrown out of the school he loves when his family can no longer afford the fees.... [More]
Directed By: Chiwetel Ejiofor

Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Dynasties delivers all the Attenborough goods - stunning visuals, captivating voiceover, and apt anthropomorphism.
Directed By: Michael Gunton, Theo Webb

Queer Eye: Season 3 (2019)
92%

#41
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: Affirming and uplifting as ever, Queer Eye's third season settles into a nearly formulaic groove -- thankfully the concoction continues to work like gangbusters thanks to the Fab Five's comforting Midas touch.

Manhunt: Season 1 (2019)
92%

#40
Adjusted Score: -1%
Critics Consensus: By focusing on the bureaucracy involved in catching a killer, Manhunt dramatizes a notorious chapter in British crime without exploiting its seedier elements.

#39
Adjusted Score: -1%
