Most Anticipated Netflix Original Shows 2020, 2021

From Dark Season 3 To Stranger Things Season 4, we have come up with a list of 21 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 which comes up with best shows, movies, documentaries 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 some of 21 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 town 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. It is expected by the fans that season 4 will release this year only.

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

Bryce Dallas Howard, Hayley Atwell, Jon Hamm, Alex Lawther and many more

Dark is a German science fiction thriller series which gained worldwide popularity because of its brilliant storyline and one needs a high functioning brain to understand it as this series seems to be confusing for a lot of viewers. You might get difficulty in keeping up with the twists and remembering all the characters. Yes, it is that confusing. Anyway, mark your calendars, cancel all your plans because 27th June it is.

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.

About season 5, it is definitely not coming this year because season 4 was dropped last month. So, we can expect it in 2021 but the theories are already revolving around the internet.

Director: Alex Pina

Ursula Corbero, Alba Flores, Alvaro Morte, Pedro Alanso and many more

Sex Education is a British comedy-drama web series covering the lives of a bunch of teenagers and depicts how sex can affect a teenager both mentally and physically. The plot deals with some heavy topics but is handled in a funny way.

It is official that another season is coming, it was confirmed way back in February but however, due to this pandemic, the releasing date is estimated to be shifted to 2021. Nevertheless, if you are a teenager like me you should definitely watch this amazing show about sex education which sadly India lacks behind in acknowledging it.

Lucifer (Season 5)

From the show name itself, you must have figured out by now that it is a devil related series. Well, you are not wrong. Lucifer is a story where Lucifer himself comes back from hell and gets involved in solving crime cases with the police. The story is quite interesting and has a unique plot. Another interesting thing is that the director of the show is Indian.

Also, Lucifer is coming back to Netflix with another hit season. The date is not released yet. Season 5 is the final season and after that, we have to say goodbye to this amazing show.

Altered Carbon (Season 3)

Altered Carbon is an American Science fiction show which gives us an unimaginable insight to the future. It is another show which is based on a novel ‘Altered Carbon’ by Richard K. Morgan. If you haven’t read this novel, I suggest you all watch the series and get out of that boredom zone.

We can assume that season 3 is not going to arrive before 2022 as the previous season was released this year. So, wait a little longer, I assure you it will be worth the wait.

The End of the F***ing World (Season 3)

This show is brilliant and very different from the usual shows. This is a British series and one can easily tell by the character’s accent. It has very deep, dark comedy as well as the plot. Alex and Alyssa went on a road trip without knowing this could turn their lives upside down as they end up murdering a man in his own house.

It is still unclear if we are getting another season or not. But there’s no harm in hoping for that.
