Archive 81 follows archivist Dan Turner (Mamoudou Athie), who takes a job restoring a collection of damaged videotapes from 1994. Reconstructing the work of a documentary filmmaker named Melody Pendras (Dina Shihabi), he is drawn into her investigation of a dangerous cult at the Visser apartment building.

When the two characters form a mysterious connection, Dan becomes convinced he can save her from the terrifying end she met 25 years ago.

Raising Dion is one of Netflix's many bingeable sci-fi offerings. Based on the comic book and short film of the same name by Dennis Liu, the series follows single mom Nicole (Alisha Wainwright) and son Dion (Ja'Siah Young) as they deal with the loss of Dion's father, Mark (Michael B. Jordan).

An already complicated situation becomes impossible when Dion begins to manifest supernatural powers, from the Matilda-esque ability to levitate his cereal to the capacity to teleport out of risky situations. Like any good "strange powers appearing out of nowhere" drama (see: NBC's Heroes or even Netflix's Stranger Things), Nicole must protect Dion from risky situations, like strange enemies or agencies looking for the chance to research his abilities.

Vikings: Valhalla - Feb. 25

Vikings: Valhalla is set over a hundred years after the end of the original series, and will tell the stories of three of the era's most famous (as well as infamous) Vikings: the legendary explorer Leif Eriksson (Sam Corlett), his sister and Old Norse religious leader Freydis Eriksdotter (Frida Gustavsson), and the ambitious Nordic prince Harald Sigurdsson (Leo Suter).

Stranger Things (Season 4)

There’s a lot of questions season 4 has to answer: What happened to Hopper? With Will and Eleven away from the monster epicenter of Hawkins, where will we see future creatures? Now that Nancy and Jonathan have been fired from the Hawkins Post, what’s next? Will Steve become some kind of movie aficionado? And will Robin ever get to tell Tammy Thompson about her love?

Alice in Borderland, season 2

At the end of the first season, Arisu had just survived a number of deadly games, but he'd also lost his friends Chota and Korube along the way. That brought him to the final Ten of Hearts game where everyone had to identify the "Witch" who hid among them. After a truly horrific massacre, Arisu figured out that Momoka was the Witch, which led to another discovery – that she and Asahi were actually sabotaging the game on purpose.

This eventually leads Arisu and Usagi to the control room where they encounter a stranger named Mira who announces a whole new set of games taking place in Tokyo City. That means Arisu's time in the game is far from over, and this new controller could be even more dangerous than those that came before her.

All of Us Are Dead

One can pretty much read the available webtoon for knowing how the storyline will unfold in the drama. The webtoon follows the zombie contagion in a high school with a group of students trapped inside the school. The drama will clearly follow the life and death situation for them, with the formulation of escape plans and successful execution. People outside the school will also go to great lengths for saving them as the contagion gradually spread. However, it is unclear as to whether Netflix will exactly follow the webtoon or take a deviation from it and create its own original material. There is high anticipation from fans for the upcoming drama with Netflix denoting the series as the Korean zombie genre’s exciting new chapter.

Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas

Before Las Vegas fell completely to the undead, Scott Ward and his rescue team of mercenaries were sent into the hordes of the Sunset Strip as they attempt to rescue the civilians struggling to survive.

The Cuphead Show
