Can’t decide on what to watch while stuck at home or in your dorm room? The holidays are coming soon, and we will have more time on our hands than we will know what to do with. Here is a rundown of TV shows coming out at the end of this year that will surely keep you entertained this winter break.

"The Mandalorian"

Season two was released on Disney+ in late October. 

Temuera Morrison, who plays Jango Fett in the Star Wars prequel and has voiced Boba Fett in the past, has been cast to play Boba Fett in season two. This is not only big news, but it brings a sense of nostalgia for Star Wars fans of all ages. Some characters from the "Clone Wars" are also rumored to make an appearance in this second season. 

Hopefully, all the questions created by the ending of season one will be answered in season two.


"WandaVision" will be released on Disney+ in December its trailer was released last month.

The plot is a combination of classic television and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Wanda Maximoff and Vision are placed in a suburban life that isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. 

There are questions surrounding how Vision is alive following the events of "Avengers: Infinity War" or if he’s even alive at all, but that’s an answer we will all just have to wait for.


"Helstrom" was released on Hulu in early October and is ten episodes long.

It is another Marvel universe centered show, but unlike "WandaVision" it is a stand-alone story. Daimon and Satana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a powerful serial killer. The siblings set off to track down the wickedest of humanity. 

The trailer for this show was also released last month and it possesses a dark, horror-oriented theme.

"Unsolved Mysteries"

Volume two of this unsettling series was released on Netflix in early October.  Like Volume one there are six episodes, thus six more stories that are still yet to be answered.

Netflix released the first volume of "Unsolved Mysteries" in July. 

"American Horror Story"

For those who missed season nine when it aired in 2019, it is set to be released on Nov. 13 on Netflix.

Season nine is titled "1984" and is heavily influenced by slasher horror films from the 1980s such as "Friday the 13th" and "Halloween." It takes place at Camp Redwood, California in 1984, but it focuses on the killing at that summer camp back in 1970.

"The Crown"

Season four of this Netflix show will be released on Nov. 15.

This season is set in the 1980s and is focused on the conflict between Queen Elizabeth and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.

"The Queen’s Gambit"

This mini-series was released in October on Netflix and is based on the novel "The Queen’s Gambit" by Walter Tevis.

This show concentrates on the life of an orphan chess prodigy Beth Harmon from age eight to 22, as she strives to become a grandmaster in chess while grappling with addiction.

Whether you are a Star Wars fan, a Marvel fan or just looking for a show to stave away boredom, this variety of shows should surely keep you entertained.
