In 2021 we will hopefully have the freedom to spend less time at home and more time being entertained in cinemas, restaurants, galleries and beyond.
However, even if the pandemic is conquered and we are able to return to our pre-COVID lives, you may still want to indulge in a little binge session or two with these series that will take their curtain call in 2021.
Dead to Me
Dead to Me starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini will finish after its third season on Netflix. The critically acclaimed traumedy tells the story of Jen (Applegate) and Judy (Cardellini), two very different women who became unlikely best friends in the wake of a hit and run accident.
Better Call Saul
Saul Goodman’s origin story will conclude its six season run in 2021. The Breaking Bad prequel has racked up 40 Emmy nominations over the years with fans and TV critics praising it as one of the best prequels ever made. The darkly comedic series explores how con man-turned-lawyer Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) officially turns into Saul Goodman.
Dear White People
The Netflix original series became required watching in 2020 as audiences, galvanised by the murder of George Floyd, sought to gain a deeper understanding of racial injustice. The college comedy-drama will finish after its fourth season for which all of the main cast, including Logan Browning and Brandon P. Bell, will return.
The hugely popular sci-fi series will take its final orbit on Amazon Prime Video after six successful seasons. The series, which is based on a series of novels by James S. A. Corey, will end its run without cast member Cas Anvar who was stood down after being the subject of multiple sexual misconduct allegations. It is unknown when the final season will be filmed due to ongoing delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The Jason Batemen led drama will wrap after four intense seasons, with the final instalment being split into two parts. Laura Linney and Emmy winner Julia Garner also star in the Netflix series, which revolves around a financial advisor who finds himself on the wrong side of a drug cartel.
Grace and Frankie
Netflix’s longest running original series will end after seven seasons in 2021.
Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin star in the eccentric comedy as two women whose friendship evolves after their husbands (played by Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen) leave them for each other.
The popular romantic comedy series, which was created by Sex and the City’s Darren Star, revolves around 40-year-old Liza Miller (Sutton Foster) who pretends she is in her twenties to score a job at a New York publishing house after her divorce.
The beloved “Nine-Nine” are leaving the precinct after eight hilarious seasons.
Starring Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews and Andre Braugher, this Golden Globe winning police procedural sitcom has kept us laughing while also having a whole lot of heart.
Brooklyn Nine Nine has previously drawn praise for tackling the issue of racial profiling with its season four episode ‘Moo Moo’ in which Crews, as Sergeant Terry Jeffords, is stopped by a fellow police officer who finds him suspicious as he is in plain clothes and in a “nice” neighbourhood.
