Extraordinary: Season 2 (March 6)

In a world where everyone has quirky superpowers, it’d truly suck to be left unspectacular. That’s the case for Jen, who we met in the first delightful season of this sci-fi rom-com series; she’s still prepared to do whatever it takes to uncover her inner superhero, while her family, friends, and BF (who happens to be named Jizzlord) struggle with their own abilities. Bringing some self-effacing UK humour to the oversaturated superhero genre, season two of Extraordinary should be just the tonic we need.

Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour (Taylor’s Version) (March 15)

I’ve been really getting into this indie country artist lately. You probably haven’t heard of her, but she writes a lot of catchy songs about heartbreak, wears a lot of red lipstick? She’s been getting some bigger gigs lately which I love to see, and now her footage of her latest concerts will be available to watch on Disney+, including extra content chosen by the gal herself. Who knows: maybe if some subscribers end up tuning in, she could really hit the big leagues and become a proper pop sensation.

X-Men ’97 (March 20)

With its OTT Wrestlemania-style character designs and intense campus drama, the 1990s animated X-Men series is a constant high-point in the minds of comic book fans. Rather than completely reboot it, then, the nerds at Marvel have merely picked right back up from where they left off, bringing back the original voice cast and storylines of that show for a 2024 continuation. The muscles and hairdos are rippling; the hefty civil rights discourse between Xavier and Magneto endures; and Jubilee’s main power is still just doing dope fireworks.
