With the discovery of possibly warm terrestrial planets around nearby red-dwarfs, the focus on exoplanet research starts to shift towards near future characterization of these worlds. The presence of one of such planets around Proxima Centauri -the nearest star to the Sun-

should not be surprising given what we have learned in the last 20 years of detections. We now keep pushing the sensitivity limits towards smaller planets on Proxima itself, and the next very nearby red dwarfs such as Barnard Star, Ross 154 among others. I will review the status of these projects and look into near future prospects of detecting more of them. Despite Proxima b and the nearest terrestrial planets are unlikely to be transiting, their proximity to the Sun should allow alternative methods of characterization such as the combination of high-contrast and high spectral resolution methods.
