Cobra Kai: William Zabka stars in season three trailer

Television in 2021 is already shaping up to be very exciting as several huge shows return alongside a host of new series beginning. With every platform from the BBC to Disney+ competing to have the biggest hit, there’s so much to get stuck into. So ahead of the new year, Express.co.uk has rounded up some huge releases confirmed for 2021 to look forward to.

Cobra Kai season 3

When is it out? January 1 on Netflix

Cobra Kai will be kicking its way back onto screens with its third season in early 2021.

The new series will follow on from the dramatic high school fight, which ended the second outing.

Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk and other media Samantha LaRusso actor Mary Mouser teased what to expect.

She said: “I was really excited when they first talked to me about where we were going after the season two ending.

“I remember when we wrapped we all kind of looked at each other like, ‘Alright, what next? Like, where do you go from here?’

“And I remember the guys being like ‘You know, it’s, it’s not over.’ We blew it up, and we have to put it back together.”

WandaVision

When is it out? January 15 on Disney+

Ever since it was first announced, fans of Marvel have been desperate to see what WandaVision is all about.

The show is a spin-off featuring Wanda Maximoff (played by Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) as they skirt through various sitcom scenarios.

Given both characters’ fates were left very much up in the air after Avengers: Endgame, viewers are eager to know what the new series will reveal for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It’s A Sin

When is it out? 2021 on Channel 4

Russell T Davies is bringing his new five-part drama to Channel 4 in 2021 as it follows the lives and loves of four friends.

Beginning in 1981, the show is all about a group of young gay men as they embrace their sexuality while growing up in a decade marred by AIDS and the stigma it brought.

Line of Duty season 6

When is it out? 2021 on BBC

Line of Duty was one of many shows hit badly by coronavirus Covid-19 filming restrictions, which meant it had to push back its planned 2020 release.

However, filming has now managed to finish on Jed Mercurio’s police drama, marking its return to our screens.

Not much is known yet about what will happen to AC-12 other than Kelly Macdonald is joining as a new detective chief inspector.

Loki

When is it out? 2021 on Disney+

Disney has now released some footage of its second live-action Marvel series Loki, which has got many excited.

The show sees Tom Hiddleston back as the iconic villain after he managed to escape using the Tesseract during Avengers: Endgame.

Very little is known about how he survived, where he went or what mischief he will cause but the trailer teases hints of spy-thriller and plenty of comedy.

The new season will see him head back to his roots at Kaer Morhen with Ciri (Freya Allan), believing Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) to be dead.
