With so many ways to consume video content these days, it can often be difficult to keep track of what is being released, when, and on what platform. So to help you out, we’ve picked our top picks of the best TV and films coming this year.
Fantastic Beasts 3: The Secrets of Dumbledore
Part three of this ‘Magical World’ series will be on our cinema screens in early April. In the works for some time, this chapter, as the title suggests, will focus on the history of the famed Dumbledore family. On top of the usual big names reprising their roles, such as Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law, this film will also feature Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) as Gellert Grindelwald.
One for the sitcom fans - this Catherine Tate (The Catherine Tate Show, The US Office) led show will be shot in mockumentary style, detailing the goings-on inside a fictional prison, HMP Woldsley. With Tate set to play a variety of different characters, we can expect to be aching with laughter at this show, which is to be Tate’s first Netflix series.
It was announced a few months ago that Line Of Duty, which seemed to have reached a natural conclusion, is to make a return. But you won’t have to wait that long for your police drama fix, as creator Jed Mercurio, who also conceived the hit Bodyguard, will be back with this new BBC show, which focuses on counter-terror and bomb disposal. And Jed has stuck with a winning formula, once again casting Vicky McClure (Line of Duty), as the lead. Again, we’re not sure when this will be released, but the six episode series finished filming in September 2021.
BBC’s Vigil proved a big hit last year, and parallels can certainly be drawn between this show, and Prime Video’s new hit The Rig, which will, like the former, include Martin Compston (Line of Duty, The Nest), in its cast, along with Emily Hampshire (Schitt’s Creek). Like Vigil, the action will take place at sea, off the Scottish coast. When a dense fog cuts off all connection from a team positioned on an oil rig, a major accident forces the crew to ask the question of who they can trust.
