Check out the new TV shows and movies you can watch this week on Australian streaming services.

The new year has barely started and already the entertainment industry is in full swing, with a raft of new TV shows and movies rolling out across Australian streaming services this week.

Headlining the release schedule is Stan's reboot of the 1992 Aussie film Romper Stomper, which explores the sadly relevant topic of neo-Nazism and abject racism within our diverse Australian society. If that's a little too heavy for you, the second season of the hilarious The Good Place returns to Netflix with a brand new episode this week, as does the entire second season of the wacky sci-fi detective series Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.

Meanwhile, over on Foxtel, conspiracy theorists can take solace in the return of Agents Mulder and Sculley in the highly-anticipated eleventh season of The X-Files. Or, if you're after something a little less brain-straining, the debut season of the reality TV show WAGS: Atlanta kicks off on hayu this Thursday.

Take a look at the highlights of this week's new streaming releases below. For a complete schedule of upcoming programming, check out our list of everything coming to Aussie streaming services in January.
