The list of Netflix movies and TV shows is never-ending and it goes on and on as we move into the next year. It is filling its pockets with a constant stream of original shows. Netflix shows have become a second definition of entertainment. We have collected a bunch of exciting TV series to look out for in the coming year of 2020. The list consists of both fresh shows and new seasons for the existing series. These are some of the must-watch Netflix Shows In 2020.
Awesome Netflix Shows In 2020 You Should Look Out For
Ares is an eight-episode psychological thriller set to release on January 17, 2020, on Netflix. It is set in the city of Amsterdam where lies a secret student society. Two best friends named Rosa and Jacob surrender to the world of wealth and power but soon they realize that they have entered a demonic place. The secret society is built on secrets from the Netherlands’ past where power comes at a horrible price.
This is a motivating series that will air in 2020. The story revolves around a champion figure skater who has a terrible accident and tries to recover from it and own her confidence back.
The journey of a girl who tries to reach her goal will be worth watching with this one.
The series stars Kaya Scodelario, Willow Shields and January Jones.
Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 Midnight
Guillermo del Toro is bringing his brand of horror to Netflix with anthology series Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight, according to the streaming service. It is going to be a sort of Black Mirror and it is said that Del Toro is himself going to write and direct a few episodes of the show that will be sophisticated as well as horrific.
Fast & Furious: Spy Racers
Who is not a fan of the famous Fast & Furious? The high octane is coming out with an animated series of Fast and Furious on Netflix. It has partnered with DreamWorks animation. There is no word on how many seasons are going to be there but previous DreamWorks series have had multiple season commitments so it’s probable we’ll be seeing more than one year of race scenes. In the series, teenager Tony Toretto follows the footsteps of his cousin to find out that they have been hired by the government to infiltrate an elicit racing league.
Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings
George Clooney’s Watergate
Netflix announced in May 2017 that it was working on a series based on author Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher books. Taking its cue from the original Witcher novels, the series is not directly related to the CD Projekt Red video game franchise. Naturally, though, there are bound to be similarities.
The show stars Witcher fanboy Henry Cavill as Geralt of Riva, the titular monster hunter who becomes a father figure and caregiver to Ciri, a young woman with an important destiny. The books will serve as the primary source material, but the games will have a big impact. The show released in 2019 and fans are going crazy and waiting for the next season which will air in 2020. This is one of the most- awaited Netflix Shows In 2020.
Raising Dion, an independently-created superhero sci-fi story that carries a heartfelt family twist has been given a full, 10-episode series order by the streaming giant.
The story stems from a 2015 short film and comic book of the same name, created by Dennis Liu. It depicts the innately unconventional parenting task of a widowed African-American woman, whose 7-year-old son Dion possesses an array of potent superpowers (telekinesis, energy projects, invisibility, etc.). Yet, despite its fantastical premise, the focus rests more on the real implications that one would have when raising a child who has a normal sense of wonder and mischief but happens to possess incredibly dangerous abilities.
Raising Dion does stand as a potentially unique family-centric take on an increasingly crowded superhero/sci-fi genre, also carrying much of the same X-Men-esque drama about society’s depicted fear of superpowered people; something that will undoubtedly be rooted in socially topical themes. Black Panther‘s Michael B. Jordan will star alongside Alisha Wainwright and Ja’Siah Young.
Netflix is pulling a sword from a stone in its upcoming original series Cursed. Based on King Arthur’s Lady of the Lake figure, the project comes from comic book writer/artist Frank Miller (The Dark Knight Returns, Sin City) and Puss In Boots writer/producer Tom Wheeler. The 10-episode series is based on Miller and Wheeler’s upcoming illustrated young adult book, and will star 13 Reasons Why‘s Katherine Langford as Nimue.
Cursed is told through the eyes of the Lady of the Lake character from the King Arthur legend, Nimue. The character is a teenager with a mysterious gift, and the series shows how she came to be on the road to her destiny.
After her mother dies, Nimue joins a young mercenary named Arthur, on his quest to find the magician Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. The future Lady of the Lake becomes a symbol of courage and rebellion against the “terrifying Red Paladins and their complicit King Uther”.
Cursed will arrive in 2020.
Netflix is all set to stream LeSean Thomas’ celebrated fantasy comic Cannon Busters as an animated series. A premiere date has not yet been announced, but the streaming service revealed that 12 episodes were in production early in 2017. Thomas is directing and serving as executive producer for the series, which revolves around a maintenance robot and a deadly fugitive who is tagging along. The aforementioned friendship droid, S.A.M, is searching for its best friend, the heir to a kingdom under siege.
Jim Henson’s terrifying 80s classic arrived on the 30th of August, with the heroic Gelflings facing off once more against the evil Skeksis. Rather than CGI, the show was, like the original, created using puppetry.
The Age of Resistance has an impressive voice cast, including Anya Taylor-Joy, Nathalie Emmanuel, Taron Egerton, Mark Hamill, Keegan-Michael Key, Simon Pegg, Alicia Vikander, Andy Samberg and Helena Bonham Carter. Read our interview with puppet designer Brian Froud here, and our spoiler-free review here.
Green Eggs And Ham
“I will not eat them in the rain, I will not eat them on a train.”
Netflix is somehow turning Dr. Seuss’s beloved (but very short) children’s book into a full animated series that sees Guy-Am-I and Sam-I-Am taking a cross-country road trip together. Adam DeVine and the legendary Michael Douglas will star with appearances from Diane Keaton, Eddie Izzard, Keegan-Michael Key, John Turturro, and Jeffrey Wright. One of the most amazing animated Netflix Shows In 2020.
Starring the ever-wonderful Toni Collette alongside Merritt Wever, Kaitlyn Dever and Danielle Macdonald (who was marvelous in Netflix’s original movie, Dumplin’), Unbelievable centers around two detectives investigating the case of a girl who allegedly lied about a sexual assault. Erin Brockovich writer created the show and is producing with literary power couple Ayelet Waldman and Michael Chabon.
Unbelievable is billed as a ‘limited series’, so we guess that means that a second season isn’t currently being planned. It will arrive on Friday the 13th of September and is already getting rave reviews.
Arriving in 2020, the debut eight-episode season of this Brazilian supernatural thriller revolves around a group of São Paulo youths drawn to a supernatural world that somehow connects back to 1908. It will apparently draw on Brazilian folklore and history and Japanese ghost tales (as the area of the city in which the kids live has an enormous Japanese community).
The showrunner is Buffy The Vampire Slayer alum Douglas Petrie, so we should be in good hands.
The I-Land is a science fiction show with an intriguing (if vaguely familiar) premise: “Ten people wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of their being in that moment and place, they decide to trek and go back home. They soon discover this world is not as it seems. There are many physical and psychological challenges with the island and they must rise to their better selves — or die as their worst ones.”
The cast includes Kate Bosworth, Natalie Martinez, Alex Pettyfer, and Kyle Schmid, and it’s available to stream from Thursday the 12th of September.
The Last Kids On Earth
An animated series based on Max Brallier’s series of books, The Last Kids On Earth sounds a mixture of fun and serious depressing, though we’re assured it’s definitely a comedy.
The story follows a group of middle schoolers who living in a post-apocalyptic world and enjoying an unsupervised life of video games and junk food while fighting off the intermittent monster attack. The voice cast includes Mark Hamill, Rosario Dawson, Catherine O’Hara, and Bruce Campbell. It is coming later in 2019.
Locke & Key
After various attempts over the years (including one failed TV pilot), Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez’s brilliant horror comic Locke & Key is coming to Netflix.
The story centers on three kids and their mother who move across the country and into the creepy family mansion after their father is brutally murdered. They discover a series of magical keys hidden around the house, each granting amazing powers – which they’ll need to combat the evil supernatural forces coming to get them. We can vouch for one of the Netflix Shows In 2020.
Now for the series that have already been renewed at Netflix, and that will be returning shortly…
13 Reasons Why season 3
13 Reasons Why is returning for a third season at Netflix, albeit without original star Katherine Langford. The actress has confirmed that she won’t be back as the ghost of Hannah for the third run of this once-limited series, which landed on the 23rd of August.
The Crown season 3
Each season of Netflix’s royal drama series The Crown is set to cover about a decade of the Queen’s life, so it wasn’t a shock to hear that a round of recasting was in the offing for season 3, which started with the lead role of Elizabeth – that went to the always-fantastic Olivia Colman (Broadchurch). Prince Philip’s shoes were up next, and after Paul Bettany was unable to juggle his schedule around, the challenge of filling those fell to the fantastic Tobias Menzies (Outlander).
Josh O’Connor (The Durrells) will be playing Prince Charles in his teens and twenties. O’Connor will appear alongside Helena Bonham Carter, who’ll be playing his aunt, Princess Margaret.
The new episodes will arrive on the 17th of November.
Lost In Space season 2
Lost In Space season two has officially been confirmed by Netflix, and will share an exclusive preview at this October’s New York Comic-Con.
The first season’s promising, cliffhanger conclusion indicated that the producers were confident there would be a season two, and series co-creators Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama revealed before season two was announced that they were working on some “wild” ideas.
One of the most awaited Netflix Shows In 2020.
Disenchantment season 2
Despite a lukewarm reception for Matt Groening’s animated fantasy comedy, the second season (well, technically ‘part two’ of season one) is coming on the 20th of September, with more to come in 2020 and 2021.
The new episodes will pick up after the shocking finale of episode 10, presumably to show how Princess Bean will respond to the catastrophes afflicting Dreamland.
Ozark season 3
Another ten episodes of Netflix’s crime drama Ozark are on their way, no doubt with more disasters in store for the Byrde family (Laura Linney and Jason Bateman). The date hasn’t been confirmed but is expected to join the list of awesome Netflix Shows In 2020.
BoJack Horseman season 6
Season 5 of BoJack Horseman concluded with our hero in direr straits than ever, and he’s coming back for more punishment soon. An official release date has not been announced. But we can expect it to air in autumn 2020.
The Last Kingdom season 4
Those mischievous Saxons are at it again with another season of The Last Kingdom on the way. Alexander Dreymon’s Uhtred is seeking to recapture his ancestral home, Bebbanburg. Only fate might have something different in store for him.
The season began in the spring, and the show is expected to be back in late 2019 or early 2020.
Lucifer season 5
Satanic police procedural Lucifer made the jump to Netflix for its fourth season. He will be back once more for a fifth and final go-around.
Tom Ellis’ cheeky (but not so little) devil is quite literally back to his old ways, but what does that mean for the lovelorn Lucifer? We expect to find out from this Netflix Shows In 2020.
Russian Doll season 2
Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the second season of Russian Doll comes. After the neat conclusion of season one, we don’t know what form the follow up will take. The creators Natasha Lyonne, Amy Poehler, and Leslye Headland are back, and Lyonne is expected to appear on the screen as Nadia again.
No release date yet, we’re afraid, but we’re hoping this Netflix Shows In 2020.
