Streaming services are starting off the new year with a lengthy list of new and returning TV shows.
January 2022 is seeing the return of two highly anticipated series, including the second season of HBO’s hit teen drama “Euphoria,” which brings back the cast of Zendaya, Hunter Schafer, Jacob Elordi, Sydney Sweeney and others, and the first part of the final season of Netflix’s hit drama “Ozark,” which picks up from last season’s cliffhanger.
Several new shows are also making their debut this month, including Hulu’s “How I Met Your Father,” which is a reboot of the original CBS show now told from the female perspective. Additionally, HBO Max is releasing its latest DC Comics project called “Peacemaker,” which depicts the origin story of the titular character, played by John Cena, who first appeared in last summer’s “The Suicide Squad” film.
