There is no rest for the TV series.

We always come up with new ones or come back those that we have loved most with other seasons and, if they are canceled, we can always console ourselves with the replies.

It is fortunate to live in the 21st century.

So even January is full of shows, unpublished or drawn from famous books. It matters little, what matters is that they give us breath from our daily routine.

Some titles? There is the chapter of American Crime Story dedicated to the murder of Gianni Versace, the dystopian story taken from the nth series of stories by Philip K. Dick or the gothic thriller set in London in the 1800s.

nss informs you of the most interesting TV series coming out this month.
