While many of the shows mentioned above — including the first season of Unidentified with Demi Lovato and all Peacock Originals — are available to watch via Peacock's free tier, this may change at some point in the future. It's also worth noting that new episodes of current series like Ordinary Joe and Law & Organized: Original Crime are only available to stream the next day for Premium and Premium Plus subscribers. So if you're only using the free tier, you'll have to wait seven days.
As far as future content is concerned, Peacock previously announced that it's already working on series reboots of Queer as Folk and Battlestar Galactica. Other original projects currently in development at Peacock include a dramatic adaptation of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air called Bel-Air, a new series based on Will Forte's MacGruber character, and a Spanish language dramedy called Armas de Mujer.
With all of that in mind, it's the perfect time to sign up and see if Peacock's free tier or Premium plans are the better fit for you.
