The Mandalorian has now made it double digits with its 10th straight week in a row on top of the TV Demand charts in both Australia and New Zealand, with The Witcher continuing to be in second place.
While there was no movement up the top of the charts there are some exciting new entries joining this week in Grace and Frankie in Australia and Sex Education and Star Trek: Picard in NZ.
Netflix classic Grace and Frankie released its sixth season on January 15. The series revolves around two women who’s husbands announced that they are in love with each other and are leaving their wives. As a result, the titular characters are forced to live together and learn to unite and cope with their difficulties, despite never being the best of friends. On September 4, 2019, Netflix announced that a 16 episode seventh and final season.
Sex Education launched its second season on Netflix on January 17, and has made it on the TV Demand charts for the first time in 2019. The first season followed the story of a socially awkward teenager who is ambivalent about sex and whose mother is a sex therapist who is open about all aspects of sexuality and sets up a sex advice business.
The eighth series in the Star Trek franchise features the return of one of its most famous captains in Jean-Luc Picard who has not appeared since Star Trek: Nemesis in 2002. The series is set 18 years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis as the now-retired Picard revisits the death of Commander Data, as well as the destruction of the planet Romulus.
Time will tell but shows tend to appear on the NZ charts before Australia so we could see both Sex Education and Star Trek: Picard on the Australian charts soon.
