Gossip Girl: Season Two

HBO Max’s most-watched original series is back with more schemes, secrets and scandals than ever. Returning to the Upper-East Side, Season 2 will pick up in the middle of Constance Billard’s and St. Jude’s junior year as the battle to be top of Manhattan’s elite continues. Not only will we meet some fresh contenders, but we’ll also welcome back the biggest and best villain from the OG series: Miss Georgina Sparks. No doubt this drama will have us on the edge of our seats, but we know we love it (just like GG does).

Where can I watch it? 1st of December on Binge.


Firefly Lane: Season Two, Part One

When you think of emotional tv shows, you think of their overwhelming focus on romantic relationships. That’s where Firefly Lane mixed it up. Shifting from romance, it follows the journey Tully and Kate’s 30-year friendship, and how no matter how life pulled them a part, they always made their way back to each other. But Season 2 yet again challenges the pair. While Kate is dealing with the aftermath of her ex-husband’s Iraq trip, Tully juggles lawsuits in the midst of restarting her career and finding her parents. We’re excited to see its return, but given their 16 episodes are broken into two parts, we know we’ll be waiting a while for some closure.

Where can I watch it? 2nd of December on Netflix.


The Recruit

Since breaking out in 2018, Noah Centineo’s resume has only grown more impressive. Starting with the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series, he’s been in Charlie’s Angels and more recently, joining the MCU in Black Adam. Now he’s headlining Netflix’s latest spy-thriller, The Recruit, which sees a young CIA lawyer earning his pay-check as he gets caught up in international politics. While it may sound like typical macho action, it’s not. With Centineo’s goofy humour and his character clumsily navigating his first full-time job, its relatable as we reminisce on the challenges of our own work stories.

Where can I watch it? 16th of December on Netflix.


Emily in Paris: Season Three

Whether you love it or hate-watch it, you’ll be thrilled to know that Emily in Paris is returning for its third glamorous season. After travelling from Chicago to Paris for work in season one, Marketing Executive Emily is falling more and more in love with the city… and its locals. This season we expect the tension between her boyfriend and will-they-won’t-they love interest to continue (ménage à trois?) along with the looming question: will she return to Chicago? While we don’t believe in Emily’s social media capabilities (an apostrophe in an Insta hashtag - really!?), we have no doubt we’ll smash this series out in a day.

Where can I watch it? 21st of December on Netflix.


The Witcher: Blood Origin

The Witcher has risen to fame thanks to its “plot” (read: Henry Cavill). But no, seriously, this medieval world is filled with an intense political landscape that’s so gripping, it’s joined the ranks of Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings with its own prequel. Like the next season of The Witcher, there’s no Henry Cavill in The Witcher: Blood Origin. But here’s what you can expect. Set over one thousand years earlier, before Elven civilisation has fallen, several outcasts unite to challenge an unstoppable power. During their journey, the series will also explore some of its untold tale, like the creation of the first Witcher, and also how the world of monsters, men and elves become one. With Michelle Yeoh headlining this series, we’re sure in for a treat this Christmas.

Where can I watch it? 25th of December on Netflix.


Bump: Season Three

We’re so excited to be reuniting with Australia’s favourite (and complicated) family for a third time, but expect this season to be slightly different. With a significant jump forward, we see baby Jacinda all grown up and embarking on her own journey at school. Meanwhile parents, Oly and Santi, have split since last season. As the pair navigate co-parenting, they’re also navigating their early twenties. Which, isn’t easy as they begin seeing other people with lingering. It’s the perfect viewing post-Christmas, when all you’re eating is leftovers and you can’t remember what day it is.

Where can I watch it? 26th of December on Stan.
