Cierra Ramirez, Maia Mitchell, and Sherry Cola in Good Trouble (2019)

"Good Trouble" | Premieres Tuesday, Jan. 8 on Freeform

The influence of "The Fosters" continues to spread through this spin-off series, which follows Callie and Mariana Foster (Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez) as they've moved north to Los Angeles. Though they haven't flown too far from the nest, fans of all things Foster know the show would do itself a disservice if it didn't show Callie and Mariana struggling with relatable issues in a city that can consume you in an instant. Out of all the proposed and planned spin-offs on television, you'd hard-pressed to find another show that accurately depicts the struggles that young people face. Even better? No superheroes. — Kelsey

2
Brooklyn Nine-Nine (2013)

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" | Season 6 Premieres Thursday, Jan. 10 on NBC

It's a relief to see "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" get a reprieve following FOX's decision to cancel the comedy series after five seasons. Jake (Andy Samberg) and his fellow NYPD officers will be back in action on NBC, as the show picks up in the wake of Jake and Amy's wedding and the cliffhanger of whether or not Captain Holt was made commissioner. I'll be tuning in to find out. — Michael

3
Keanu Reeves in Replicas (2018)

Replicas | In theaters Friday, Jan. 11

Keanu Reeves and sci-fi is a mixed bag, giving us stone-cold classics like The Matrix ... and a few others that didn't quite live up to expectations (remember Johnny Mnemonic?) It's unclear on which side of the fence Replicas will fall, but I'm not turning down the chance to see Reeves play a neuroscientist who is working to bring back his dead family using robotics and cloning. I'll just have to wait to see if it's "Woah" or "D'oh!" — Michael

4
Mahershala Ali in True Detective (2014)

"True Detective" | Season 3 Premieres Sunday, Jan. 13 on HBO

Season 2 of "True Detective" is far enough in the past for me to forget most of my complaints about it, and I'm not about to pass up the opportunity to watch Mahershala Ali in the series. Smart timing, HBO. Looks like I'll have to re-up my subscription before "Game of Thrones" returns in April. No matter how Season 3 turns out, it'll be worth it if I get to see another sweet opening credits sequence. — James G.

5
Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born (2018)

A Star is Born | Available Digitally Tuesday, Jan. 15

Despite my penchant for dark and disturbing movies, I'm an incredibly easy mark for tearjerkers. But since I'm not a huge fan of weeping in public, I avoided watching A Star is Born in the theater. Instead, I'll be waiting for the Jan. 15 digital release, when I can watch Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper from the comfort (and seclusion) of my own home. Who knows? Maybe I'll cheer myself up by making it a double feature with Suspiria (also a January digital release). — James G.

6
Lana Condor in Deadly Class (2018)

"Deadly Class" | Season 1 Premieres Wednesday, Jan. 16 on SYFY

Hey, another series about a group of uniquely skilled (and nattily clad) students honing their crafts at a super-secret school for the gifted! And it's also based on a comic book! Deadly Class may not score a ton of points for originality, but it makes up for that with a fantastic cast of up-and-coming stars, including Siobhan Williams, Benjamin Wadsworth, and Netflix rom-com fave Lana Condor. — James M

7
Anson Mount, Rachael Ancheril, and Sonequa Martin-Green in Star Trek: Discovery (2017)

"Star Trek: Discovery" | Season 2 Premieres Thursday, Jan. 17 on CBS All Access

Set 10 years before "Star Trek," the upstart "Discovery" has been an interesting and fun watch, especially knowing it will eventually lead to the events that kicked off the adventures of Kirk and Spock. Season 2 looks to get us that much closer to the original series with the introduction of the USS Enterprise — helmed by Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) — and our first look at Spock (Ethan Peck) before he decided to lose his beard and emo haircut. Will we also get to see a young Kirk or Scotty make a cameo? Now that would be cool. — Vanessa

8
Bruce Willis in Glass (2019)

Glass | In theaters Friday, Jan. 18

Unbreakable has always been my favorite M. Night Shyamalan film, and is probably one of my three favorite superhero movies ever. Yeah, it was kind of open-ended, but it didn't feel unfinished, and the arc settled in a solid place with David Dunn (Bruce Willis) out there being the low-key hero he was meant to be. I didn't even realize I wanted more of the story until M. Night stealthily revived the universe in Split, and now, I'm counting the days until Glass drops and the heroes, villains, and monsters of Philly battle it out. Will this really be the end? I’m hoping not. — Vanessa

9
Jon Bernthal in The Punisher (2017)

"The Punisher" | Season 2 Premieres Friday, Jan. 18 on Netflix

Netflix's Marvel purge has already claimed "Daredevil," "Luke Cage," and "Iron Fist." Will "The Punisher" be next? Unfortunately it's likely, so I'm definitely going to enjoy this season like it's the last. Season 1 was one of my favorite Marvel TV shows, being more dark thriller than superhero show. Jon Bernthal literally killed it as the vigilante anti-hero, and the exceptional supporting cast only elevated the show further. Netflix finally unveiled a Jan. 18 release date, with a teaser teeing up a battle between Frank Castle and his ex-bestie, played by "Westworld" star Ben Barnes. I can only imagine the kind of carnage this season will bring. — Kelsey

10
Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer in Broad City (2014)

"Broad City" | Season 5 Premieres Thursday, Jan. 24 on Comedy Central

It's time to say goodbye to "Broad City," as the sublime, surreal series kicks off its fifth and final season. And while much has been written about the unique perspectives Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer have brought to television, the aspect I'll miss the most is how perfectly the show captured the magic and misery of being young and broke in New York City, a weird-yet-wonderful kind of stasis where everything feels both possible and impossible at the same time. It's a kind of limbo that you only know if you've lived through it. How low can you go? Pretty low ... good thing you learn to laugh about it. — James M
