Six sensational shows to wow you this January

Keep up on Rogers On Demand as the winter TV season gets underway

It’s January! Say goodbye to reruns and holiday episodes, and hello to new episodes of your favourite series – plus plenty of new shows destined to become your binge-watching must-sees. Here are six to check out on Rogers On Demand (Channel 100).

The X-Files

The 11th season of the sci-fi drama promises some memorable standalone episodes – including one about the origins of the X-Files themselves – and, with Barbara Hershey joining the cast, picks up right where Season 10 left off, as shocking truths are revealed about Mulder and Scully’s missing son, William.

Season 11 is currently airing on CTV.

Nashville

The critically acclaimed country-music drama strums its last chords in this sixth – and final – season, which sees Will, Avery and Gunnar forming a new group; Deacon developing a romantic relationship with Jessie; Maddie falling for a pop star (Nic Luken); and a troubled Juliette coming under the spell of a charismatic svengali (Josh Stamberg).

The Season Six is currently airing on W Network.

Showtime’s The Chi

Created by Emmy® Award winner Lena Waithe (who also wrote all 10 episodes), this coming-of-age ensemble drama revolves around a group of residents (including Jason Mitchell, Jacob Latimore, Alex Hibbert and Tiffany Boone) trying to create better lives for themselves in Chicago’s infamous South Side neighbourhood.

The series is currently airing on The Movie Network.

Schitt’s Creek

In the fourth season of this riotous comedy series, new motel co-owners Johnny (Eugene Levy) and Stevie (Emily Hampshire) deal with some hiccups, Alexis (Annie Murphy) goes to college, Moira (Catherine O’Hara) puts on a stage show, and David (Dan Levy) and Patrick (Noah Reid) deal with the progression of their relationship.

The fourth season is currently airing on CBC.

The Launch

In each episode of this exciting new singing-competition series, five unsigned musical acts – each mentored by a team made up of a recording artist (Shania Twain, Boy George, Alessia Cara or Fergie, among others) and a renowned record producer – lay it all on the line for the chance to record (and immediately release!) a brand-new song.

The series is currently airing on CTV.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story

January 17

Does Ryan Murphy ever sleep?! The Emmy®-winning writer-director-producer’s latest anthology series is this hotly anticipated nine-episode drama revolving around the events leading up to, and following, the July 1997 murder of the titular designer (Édgar Ramírez) by Andrew Kunanan (Darren Criss) outside Versace’s Miami mansion.

The series premieres on FX on January 17.
