More from Streaming

All eight episodes of the third season are available in one go in January. You’re not just treated to life inside the school, but the life of teenagers and teachers when two schools collide and lives are integrated after years of racial segregation.

All episodes are available from Jan. 13.

3. The Family Farm

What’s it like to farm in the UK? That’s something three families will experience, with absolutely not experience in farming at all. These families all have one thing in common: They want a better work-life balance.

Throughout six episodes, you’ll watch as the three inner-city families take to live in North Wales. They’ll be thrown out of their comfort zones, pushed into weather they never expected to experience. And it’s everything they need to realize what they truly want to achieve and want out of life.

Start streaming The Family Farm on Jan. 6.
