Premiering January 28 is The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window. The title alone should let viewers know that this murder mystery is a little more tongue-in-cheek than fans of the genre are used to. Produced by Will Ferrell and starring Kristen Bell, the series parodies thrillers like Gone Girl and The Woman In The Window, with Bell lurking in a dark and empty house searching for clues to a murder that might not even have happened. Is she losing touch with reality, or does she just need to lay off the wine?

Excitement is high for the January 18 premiere How I Met Your Father, the long-awaited spinoff from the smash hit How I Met Your Mother. Starring Hilary Duff, this new series takes place far in the future as Sophie tells her kids a long and winding story about--what else?--how she met their father. Not much is known yet, but if the previous series was any indication, this reboot will be full of laughs and heart.

The first season of The Righteous Gemstones was sold on the talents of comedy legends John Goodman and Danny McBride, but viewers were also treated to an extended cast of scene-stealing newcomers like Edi Patterson and Tim Baltz. Season two adds more faces to the fold with the introduction of a west coast megachurch run by Eric Andre and a muckraking journalist played by Jason Schwartzman. Longtime viewers will rejoice at the upcoming season, and those new to the flock still have time to catch up before brand new episodes premiere starting January 9.

Fans of James Gunn's The Suicide Squad movie will remember Peacemaker, the musclebound fool and antihero wrapped in a flag and played by John Cena. Armed with two tons of muscle and a half pound of brains, the Peacemaker is finally out of prison working as a hitman for a secret branch of the US government. He may be an old hand at blowing up terrorists, but he's not used to having free time. Maybe he'll take up pottery, or reconnect with his distant father, or maybe he'll throw a missile warhead barehanded at a group of henchmen. Balancing a knife’s edge of comedy and drama with every episode written by The Suicide Squad and Guardians Of The Galaxy scribe James Gunn, The Peacemaker premieres January 13.
