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

Netflix subscribers, you'll want to carve out a spot on the couch and abandon all hope of getting anything done this week, because the next few days are going to be jam-packed with big releases you won't want to miss.

First up, Wednesday will bring one of the most anticipated Netflix original anime series the service has seen with GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters. 24 hours later, the second season of the gritty Archie spin-off Riverdale will make its return, followed by the fourth season of the charming Grace and Frankie and the sixth season of the terrifying American Horror Story on Friday.

The line-up is notably weaker over on Stan, where the biggest release of the week is the fourth season of the family-friendly Shaun the Sheep. Foxtel, meanwhile, holds its own against Netflix's primo schedule with the third season of the closest thing we have to a Harry Potter for adults: The Magicians. If that doesn't satisfy your hunger, you can feast upon the premiere of season three of The Great Australian Bake Off via the Lifestyle channel.

Lastly, for those who prefer their TV full of shock and scandal, hayu has the premiere of Relative Success With Tabatha, a reality TV series following Australian business entrepreneur Tabatha Coffey as she attempts to revamp various family-owned businesses across America.

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.
