Most Anticipated Netflix Shows 2021, 2022

From You Season 3 To Stranger Things Season 4, we have come up with a list of 25 most anticipated Netflix shows that we are dying to watch. 

You cannot deny the fact that some of the greatest shows are on Netflix. Netflix is a platform that comes up with the best shows, movies, documentaries from time to time. Whenever Netflix drops a new series we usually binge-watch in a day and after that comes a long wait for the next season. Here is the list of 25 most anticipated Netflix shows with the upcoming season that we all are eagerly waiting for.

Stranger Things (Season 4)

If you have watched Stranger Things, I am pretty sure it has made it to your list of favourite shows. Starting from season 1 to season 3, the show has progressed quite smoothly. It is a sci-fi show of how young kids and other people are so determined to avenge the dark mysterious creature hovering in their town for a long time. It feels like we have to build a connection with the young characters as we have seen them growing physically throughout the season.

Season 3 left us with the ending of Hopper being trapped or dead and Eleven moves with Joyce but the season 4 teaser gave us a glimpse of Hopper being alive and working with Russians. After the release of the teaser, we all cannot wait any longer and are desperately looking forward to it. As per some reports, the upcoming season will release in Aug 2021.

Black Mirror (Season 6)

Black Mirror has currently 5 seasons and by far it is the best science fiction show to ever exist. The episodes are different from the other but are somehow connected. The best part about this show is its unique storyline based on growing technology and the impact it will have in the near future.

Although it is not officially announced anything about the release of season 6, not even the teaser or trailer are out still there is a high possibility of another season.

Director: Charlie Brooker

Money Heist (Season 5)

La Casa de Papel or commonly known as Money Heist is a Spanish drama series which is becoming everyone’s another favourite series. This series is about the gang of robbers who plan robberies in most secured and wealthiest places along with their supervisor who is known as Professor. The opposition is the police force. It is interesting to see how we are more empathetic towards the robbers and want them to achieve rather than being on the police side. The characters are all beautiful and strong. The show is definitely dominating Netflix. Money Heist Season 5 is expected to release sometime in 2021.
