Get your 2020 off to the best start with these must-watch TV series

All-new decade, all-new shows! From Absentia to Jett, a Beverly Hills reboot to the Unicorn, these are the new and returning TV series you won’t want to miss this January.


This meta comedy sees the stars of the original teen drama Beverly Hills 90210 return – with a twist. They all play themselves as they deal with the launch of the reboot of the 1990s TV series. Confused? Don’t worry – all you really need to know is that you’ll be seeing Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Tori Spelling and the rest of the gang again. Oh, and it’s really, really funny.
