All the genre TV and movies coming to subscription streaming in January 2020

Welcome to 2020, where there are still plenty of streaming originals to check out and a boatload of classic movies you probably forgot you loved. Oh, and a gloriously gory, restored version of a movie you probably forgot existed at all. Streaming might be more fragmented than ever, but it means there's more stuff to find on your streaming box of choice.

The biggest highlights for the month include Netflix's new original series Dracula and a new season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. If you're looking for some throwback fun, CBS All Access is debuting Picard. Disney+ is adding the new live-action Aladdin flick; Apple TV+ is continuing to roll out the first season of Servant; and niche horror streamer Shudder has the gory, R-rated cut of Tammy and the T-Rex (yes, you read that correctly). There are also plenty of movies, including a cache of Star Trek flicks and a few Lord of the Rings installments.

Check out our full rundown below and let us know what you'll be bingeing to stream in the new year.

NETFLIX

HIGHLIGHTS

Dracula (Netflix Original Series): The folks who made Sherlock one of the biggest hits of the past decade have set their sights on the OG vampire. Mark Gattis and Steven Moffat's three-episode miniseries looks to hopefully do what Sherlock did for Holmes — introduce a well-known character in an interesting new light.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 3: The scary Riverdale semi-spinoff is back with a new run of episodes, picking up the ghostly, angsty action for a fresh batch of stories. The show hits the sweet spot between Riverdale high school drama and the scarier side of horror, and is the perfect cool winter's binge.

Ghost Stories (Netflix Original Series): If your new year is looking for a good scare, this Netflix horror anthology should do the trick. The project features four "mind-bending thrillers," largely from Indian filmmakers.

CBS ALL ACCESS

The niche CBS service is adding a few genre movie highlights, including The Adventures of Tintin and Escape From New York — but the big story is Picard. The new Star Trek original series, which picks up with Sir Patrick Stewart's beloved captain for one more adventure, makes its debut on Thursday, January 23. The show finds a younger cast of adventurers teaming up with Picard while also featuring plenty of cameos and connections to the ol' Next Generation days.


HULU

HIGHLIGHTS

A bunch of Star Trek films: From the first Motion Picture through The Undiscovered Country, any Star Trek fan looking to relive the glory days should find it pretty easy beginning this month. Before Picard makes its debut on CBS All Access, go back and dive into some of the ol' Original Series big-screen adventures.

Endlings: Complete Season 1 (Hulu Originals): This kid-friendly sci-fi series, a live-action/CGI hybrid, is an adventure series following four foster children who get wrapped up in a much bigger mystery after the final elephant on Earth disappears. The project comes from the production company behind the award-winning Odd Squad.

Manifest: Season 2 Premiere (NBC): The acclaimed mystery about a plane full of people that vanishes — then reappears — is back for Season 2. If you're not watching live on NBC, don't worry, the show will be available on Hulu the next day, once Season 2 kicks off in January.

DISNEY+

HIGHLIGHTS

Aladdin: The live-action remake trend continued in 2019 with this fun, high-flying, sing-along hit. The adaptation, directed by Guy Ritchie, made a cool billion at the box office and scored solid critical reception. If you missed it the first time around, or just want to relive it a few dozen times, this is what Disney+ was made for.

The Runaways Season 3: In case you haven't been watching on Hulu, the third season of this Marvel series is sliding over for some cross-promotion. The show follows a group of teens who learn their parents are supervillains and is a ton of fun. The third season is also the show's final, so jump in and enjoy the ride.

Midsommar: The acclaimed A24 horror film comes to streaming! Directed by Ari Aster, the film follows a group of travelers who get wrapped up in a pagan cult during a festival in Sweden. Critics loved it, but get ready — it's wild.

APPLE TV+

Servant: The first season of this freaky, suspenseful horror-is thriller continues to roll out with the final few episodes arriving in January. The series kicks off with a mysterious new nanny coming to take care of a child, but is so much weirder than that. Along with Servant, the first seasons of SEE and For All Mankind (both of which have concluded) are also streaming on Apple TV+.


SHUDDER

HIGHLIGHTS

The Marshes (Shudder Original): This original Shudder project is set in a marshland and follows a doctor committed to saving it, but the efforts to save the marsh take a back seat when a mysterious evil is unleashed and the team have to try and save themselves instead.

Tammy and the T-Rex (R-rated cut): Yeah, this is real. The 1994 cult hit, originally released as a PG-13 film, has had its original R-rated cut restored for a gory, violent good time. The film stars Denise Richards and the late Paul Walker and focuses on a murdered teen who has his mind transplanted into a T-Rex. So he returns to his high school to find his girl and get some revenge.
