Kingdom – January 25

This Netflix original series hitting in January 2019 is a South Korean medieval zombie thriller and it looks absolutely amazing. Just based on the trailer, not only is it truly frightening and creepy, but epically and beautifully filmed.

I love South Korean television and cinema. There’s something about it that feels so different, so quirky and interesting, so I can’t wait to see the Korean take on a period drama with zombies.

The story will follow a crown prince who has been sent on a mission to investigate a sickness that is turning villagers into zombies.

Kingdom will have six 50-minute episodes and has already been renewed for a second season. Stay tuned for my recaps and reviews of this show!

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Season 4 Part 2 – January 25

Not only is this the much anticipated second half of season four, but the last part of the final season of this sugary comedy with a dark underbelly.

The Netflix original series, created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock (30 Rock), stars Ellie Kemper as the unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt as she adjusts to modern life in the big city after being rescued from a doomsday cult.

The power of this show really lies in its ensemble, with amazing co-stars Tituss Burgess, Jane Krakowski, Carol Kane, and Jon Hamm.

For those lamenting the final season, there is some talk of an Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt feature film to satisfactorily bring everything to a close.

Black Earth Rising – January 25

This BBC2 and Netflix co-production is a legal thriller about the West’s relationship with Africa and the repercussions of prosecuting international war criminals.

This Netflix original series hitting in January 2019 stars Michaela Coel as a woman who was rescued from the Rwandan genocide and adopted by an international criminal lawyer.

Now she works for John Goodman at a prestigous law firm, but her life is turned upside down when her adopted mother takes on the prosecution of an African militia leader.

This looks intriguing and super well done, and an illuminating social commentary as well as an engaging mystery.
