The biggest new releases coming to Netflix, Stan, hayu and Foxtel this week

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

After last week's cavalcade of big-name releases like Riverdale Season 2 and Kong: Skull Island, this week sees Aussie streaming services taking a slightly more sedate approach to their TV and movie line-ups.

That's not to say the next seven days are lacking for fresh stuff to watch, however. Over on Netflix, for instance, the acclaimed CW superhero series Black Lightning makes its Australian debut, while the rebooted comedy series One Day at a Time moves into its second season for another helping of family dysfunction.

Stan picks up its pace this week with the arrival of the entire nine-season run of the American version of the offbeat comedy The Office. Reality TV junkies also get their fill with the launch of the third season of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars, which sees the best contenders from RuPaul's Drag Race go gown-to-gown in a battle to be crowned the most fashionable drag queen around.

Fantasy fans lamenting the recent delay of Game of Thrones Season 8 might want to turn their attention to Foxtel this week for the premiere of Britannia, a fantasy drama series that hits on many of the same themes of medieval politicking and grand warfare. Those who prefer their conflict at a more-intimate scale can satisfy their love for scandal over on hayu, where The Real Housewives of New Jersey wraps up its eighth season 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.
