Best New Series Coming to Disney+ in January 2023 (UK/Ireland) – What’s On Disney Plus

Disney+ subscribers in the UK and Ireland have plenty of great new series to watch on Disney+ this January, with the continuation of many original series, plus the return of a great Star Wars animated series and a number of brand new shows, which can only be found on Disney+.

Here’s a look at some of the great new series coming to Disney+ in January 2023:


“Extraordinary” is set in a world where everyone develops a power on their 18th birthday… everyone, that is, except Jen. She turns 25 and is still waiting to get hers. She’s not even fussy about what it might be: super speed? Laser eyes? The ability to connect a USB correctly every single time? She takes it. Like a caterpillar surrounded by butterflies, Jen feels unable to move forward, stuck in a dead-end job at a party store and occasionally hooking up with Luke, a flaky young man with the annoyingly cool ability to fly. Luckily, Jen has Carrie to stop her from wallowing in her own self-pity. Inseparable since school, their relationship cycles between sister, parent and wingman. Together, they share a flat in East London with Carrie’s long-term boyfriend, Kash. Carrie has the power to channel the dead, but feels she’s been overshadowed by her own party trick: does anyone care what she has to say? Kash takes his power—the ability to turn back time—very seriously, but he’s not above using it to undo minor embarrassments, or moments when he says exactly the wrong thing to long-suffering Carrie. The fourth member of the apartment is a stray cat, named Jizzlord by the gang, who carries a surprising secret: it turns out that even cats have more power than Jen.

Drifting in a big, confusing world and armed with nothing but a little hope and a lot of desperation, Jen begins her journey to find her maybe-superpower. But when she does, she may discover the joy of being pretty okay.
