Superman & Lois (TV Series – season premiere available 25/2/2021)
Chances are that you’ve already met this iteration of the DC comics power-couple Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois (Bitsie Tulloch) thanks to their various appearances throughout in a number Arrowverse tie-ins. So far, they’ve made a great impression, which is why it’s exciting to see the pair get their own spin-off series which sees Clark bring Lois home to Kansas to raise their teenaged sons.
Punky Brewster (TV Series – series premiere available on 26/02/2021)
Remember Punky Brewster? Well she’s back – in grown-up form! Soleil Moon Fry returns in the title role, only this time she’s playing a single mum who’s trying to raise a family of her own. Those familiar with the original ’80s series will remember that young Punky was abandoned at a supermarket, which is where she met the friendly old man who would go on to adopt her. Now, it seems Punky has met another lost girl who’s in a similar situation. Also stars Freddie Prinze Jr.
