After Disney Investor Day where Disney+ showcased all the content coming to the streaming service next year, now Peacock has unveiled some of what will be coming to the platform in 2021.

On January 1st, 2021 – “The Office” will shift from Netflix over to Peacock, where it will be exclusively available to stream. The recently renewed “Amber Ruffin Show” will continue to air new episodes of her “smart and silly take on the week’s news” every Friday.

Two previously announced originals, the reboot of “Punky Brewster” (Soleil Moon Frye, Freddie Prinze Jr.) and “Rutherford Falls” (Ed Helms) will debut in the first half of 2021. Some other shows that will make their debut later in 2021 are Tina Fey’s “Girls5eva”, “Dr. Death” based Wondery’s hit podcast (Joshua Jackson, Alec Baldwin, and Christian Slater), MacGruber (Will Forte), and “One of Us is Lying”.

Recently picked up “Bel Air”, which is one-hour dramatic reboot of the 90’s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” will also come to Peacock in 2021.

When a one-hit-wonder girl group from the 90’s gets sampled by a young rapper, its members reunite to give their pop star dreams one more shot.

Dr. Death

Release Date: Late 2021

Based on Wondery’s hit podcast, DR. DEATH is based on the terrifying true story of Dr. Christopher Duntsch (Joshua Jackson), a rising star in the Dallas medical community. Young, charismatic and ostensibly brilliant, Dr. Duntsch was building a flourishing neurosurgery practice when everything suddenly changed. Patients entered his operating room for complex but routine spinal surgeries and left permanently maimed or dead. As victims piled up, two fellow physicians, neurosurgeon Robert Henderson (Alec Baldwin) and vascular surgeon Randall Kirby (Christian Slater), set out to stop him. DR. DEATH explores the twisted mind of Dr. Duntsch and the failures of the system designed to protect the most defenseless among us.

One of Us Is Lying

Release Date: Late 2021

Bel-Air

Release Date: Late 2021

Set in modern-day America, BEL-AIR is a serialized one-hour dramatic analogue of the 90’s sitcom “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” that leans into the original premise: Will’s complicated journey from the streets of West Philadelphia to the gated mansions of Bel-Air. With a reimagined vision, BEL-AIR will dive deeper into the inherent conflicts, emotions and biases that were impossible to fully explore in a 30-minute sitcom format, while still delivering swagger and nods to the original show.####Release Date: Late 2021
