All The New Shows Coming To Netflix

Netflix has been cranking out new original shows by the dozens over the past few years and it doesn’t look like they’re slowing down. Whether you like traditional sitcoms, comedies with a serious edge, gritty dramas, nail-biting thrillers, love stories, reality competitions or virtually any other genre you can imagine, the streaming service has an original show for you to binge.

We’ve been keeping an eye on Netflix’s new release calendar and here are all the new series — and new seasons of returning favorites — that will be fighting for your attention in the coming months.

Updated: November 5, 2020

‘Dash & Lily’

“Dash & Lily” looks like the perfect, feel-good series for the holiday season after this insane year. The romantic drama is based on a series of young adult novels from authors Rachel Cohn and David Levithan, who were also behind “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.” It follows a sweet optimist named Lily who leaves a notebook filled with dares on a shelf in her favorite bookstore, just waiting for someone to find it and play along. The guy who finds it, Dash, happens to basically be her polar opposite, setting up an unlikely relationship that revolves around the book. It will premiere on Nov. 10.

‘Trash Truck’

This has one of the more interesting titles of any Netflix original show debuting this year. “Trash Truck” is an animated show that will be aimed at kids — not, as you may have imagined, a gritty series about a crew of garbage collectors. It will focus on a 6-year-old boy named Hank who loves getting dirty and palling around with a garbage truck. Several filmmakers behind Kobe Bryant’s 2017 Academy Award-winning short film, “Dear Basketball,” are bringing this show to the screen, including Max Keane. The first season hits Netflix on Nov. 10.

‘The Liberator’

Eye-popping visuals will be the main attraction of this ambitious new series that will use a groundbreaking new hybrid of animation and live-action. Netflix is describing “The Liberator” as a four-part limited series that tells the amazing true story of an American Army officer who led a 500-day campaign to liberate Europe during World War II. It’s being adapted from Alex Kershaw’s account of the story, which carries the same title, and will debut on Nov. 11. The show is being directed by Grzegorz Jonkajtys, who was a visual effects artist on blockbusters like “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

‘The Crown’ — Season Four

The anticipated new season of Netflix’s acclaimed series “The Crown,” is set to start streaming on Nov. 15. This fourth batch of episodes will take place in the late 1970s and will see Academy Award winner Olivia Colman return as Queen Elizabeth. Historical British icons that will make their debut in the story this season include Margaret Thatcher, played by Gillian Anderson, and Diana Spencer, played by Emma Corrin. The tense relationship between Elizabeth and Thatcher will be a major part of the plot.

‘We Are the Champions’

This new sports documentary series definitely looks quirky. Each episode of “We Are the Champions” will look at a different oddball sport that you probably had no idea existed. From cheese rolling to chili eating to dog dancing, which is shown here, the competitors who take these competitions seriously will be profiled and the events themselves will be shown. The six-episode first season debuts on Nov. 17 and the show comes from executive producer Rainn Wilson.

‘Holiday Home Makeover with Mr. Christmas’

Fans of home makeover and design shows will want to check this one out when it debuts on Nov. 18. “Holiday Home Makeover with Mr. Christmas” stars interior designer Benjamin Bradley, who is a master of wintertime decor. Bradley and his team will pull off epic, holiday-themed makeovers at the homes of different families. It should be a warm watch just in time for Thanksgiving.

‘Virgin River’ — Season Two

This romantic drama, based on a series of novels, debuted in December 2019. The second batch of new episodes is already set to start streaming on Nov. 27, to the delight of its fans. “Virgin River” follows a nurse practitioner who leaves her life in Los Angeles for a remote town in northern California. Alexandra Breckenridge, known for her work in “The Walking Dead” and “This Is Us,” leads the cast.

‘A Queen Is Born’

Netflix is launching another lively reality series this year when “A Queen Is Born” debuts on Nov. 11. This show will see drag stars Gloria Groove and Alexia Twister help aspiring drag queens reach their full potential in each episode. It will follow the makeover format that the streamer has had great success with in “Queer Eye” but will throw in a performance element that should give every installment a fun climax.

‘Voices of Fire’

If you love musical reality shows, “Voices of Fire” sounds like it could be a winner. This Netflix original comes from Pharrell Williams, who is also appearing as its host. In it, the star music producer tries to put together an incredible gospel choir in his hometown of Norfolk, Virginia, alongside his uncle, Bishop Ezekiel Williams. The series will showcase undiscovered singers around that area of all ages and backgrounds. The show is slated for debut on Nov. 20.

‘Selena: The Series’

The life of singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez continues to inspire new generations nearly 30 years after her tragic killing at the age of 23. Her story will be told in a Netflix series that is scheduled for release in 2020. Christian Serratos, best known as Rosita in “The Walking Dead,” is set to play the Tejano icon. It looks like the show will provide a lengthy look into her short life, as Madison Taylor Baez appears on the the cast list for playing Selena during her childhood. Six episodes of an hour each will debut on Dec. 4, according to Netflix.


Nothing like a little Taiwanese horror to brighten up the winter months! This new series is based on the terrifying 2017 video game of the same title. It followed a pair of students who were trapped in a remote school, which happened to be haunted. The mysteries of the building and the monsters who call it home will be revealed in this live-action show, which is set in the 1990s. It will have an eight-episode first season that debuts on Dec. 5.

‘Alice in Borderland’

Sci-fi lovers will also probably dig this show, especially if they are into video games. This live-action series was produced in Japan and is based on the manga series of the same name. It’s about a young gamer who suddenly finds himself in an empty version of Tokyo, where he and his friends have to compete in dangerous games in order to survive. The premise sounds wild and ripe for some amazing visuals. The first season of “Alice in Borderland” will debut worldwide on Dec. 10.


Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland production studio is behind this sumptuous new original that is set to stream on Christmas. “Bridgerton” is a period drama that looks and sounds straight out of the world of Jane Austen. It follows a young woman from London’s powerful Bridgerton family, played by Phoebe Dynevor, who is navigating the marriage market after making her debut. She soon finds sparks flying with a desirable bachelor, played by Regé-Jean Page, despite the fact that the two claim they can’t stand each other. Netflix describes it as “romantic, scandalous and quick-witted,” which sounds like a winning combination.


This Turkish original series sounds pretty intense. Its plot follows a hitman who has to go on the run after betraying his bosses. He finds himself hiding out in a vacant tailor shop in a small neighborhood, where the residents mistakenly think he’s the son of the shop’s late owner. He decides to go along with the story and ingrain himself into the town while the people from his past hunt him down. The first season of “50M2” is set for eight episodes that will drop on Jan. 27, 2021.


Anime is a genre where Netflix has had a lot of success in recent years and “Eden” looks to be one of the studio’s most ambitious attempts at it. This new series comes from the director of “Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood,” which is widely considered to be one of Japanese animation’s greatest achievements. The show is set thousands of years in the future, in a world inhabited by robots who only believe humans were an ancient myth, until two of them stumble upon a baby girl who had been sleeping in stasis. The series will consist of four episodes and is scheduled to drop in May 2021.

‘Another Life’ — Season Two

We aren’t sure when new episodes of “Another Life” will hit Netflix but they are definitely on the way. This sci-fi show takes place in the cold depths of space, focusing on an astronaut and her young crew as they explore a mysterious alien artifact. “Battlestar Galactica” veteran Katee Sackhoff leads the cast. The series debuted in 2019 and a second season was picked up later that year. Production was meant to start in March 2020 but the pandemic delayed it until August.

‘Battle Kitty’

The kiddos are getting a new Netflix original that sounds very interesting. “Battle Kitty” is being billed by the studio as an animated show that is also interactive. It sounds like it could be a blend of gaming and TV storytelling in a style similar to that of other groundbreaking Netflix originals like “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend.” Kids will follow Kitty on a quest to become the champion of Battle Island, exploring the show however they wish and unlocking new paths as they go.

‘Black Summer’ — Season Two

It’s pretty ironic when a show about a global crisis is delayed by an actual global crisis. That’s what happened with Netflix’s “Black Summer,” which follows people trying to survive a zombie apocalypse. The show’s second season was expected to drop this year but is now expected to come out in 2021. The show stars Jaime King and comes from the same writers behind “Z Nation.” The first season was a brisk eight episodes, making it an easy one to catch up on.

‘Brand New Cherry Flavor’

It’s certainly got a strange title but don’t let that spoil this intriguing-sounding original series. It will be a revenge thriller based on the novel of the same name by Todd Grimson. “Brand New Cherry Flavor” is set in 1990s Los Angeles and follows an aspiring filmmaker as its lead character. The cast is impressive and includes Catherine Keener, Eric Lange and Rosa Salazar, pictured here, who also appeared in Netflix’s “Bird Box.” Eight episodes are expected to be released soon.

‘City of Ghosts’

When’s the last time you heard of an animated documentary series involving ghosts? Netflix is giving its subscribers just that when “City of Ghosts” debuts. This kids series is part documentary, part animated show and will follow a group of kids who learn about the history of their city by talking with the ghosts that also live there. Emmy winner Elizabeth Ito is behind the unique program and brings with her plenty of experience from her time working on “Adventure Time,” which is widely considered one of the best animated shows in history.


This new animated series is joining Netflix’s lineup of programming aimed at kids. “Centaurworld” has a fantastic premise: A tough war horse somehow gets transported from her hardened world to a colorful one populated with silly centaurs who like to sing. She tries to make it back home with help from new friends. The art style from the promotional image provided by Netflix looks pretty fun and whimsical, which sounds like what we all need after this year.

‘Cowboy Bebop’

This one could either be really awesome or really disappointing but, either way, it will surely be one of Netflix’s most anticipated new original shows when it drops. This live-action series is based on the beloved anime series from the 1990s, which still ranks among the best animated shows ever produced. For the uninitiated, this stylish, futuristic story follows a crew of bounty hunters on board a rickety spaceship called the Bebop as they hunt down targets and try to strike it rich. The series had its production delayed by several months this year because of the pandemic and an injury suffered by star John Cho, who is pictured here.

‘The Crew’

Kevin James, shown here, has been a regular in some of Netflix’s original movies and now he’s getting his own series on the streaming platform. In “The Crew,” he’ll play the crew chief of a NASCAR team that comes under new management when the old owner passes it down to his daughter. Generational clashes will provide much of the humor as his character gets used to working with a young new crop of crew members. It will mark the first scripted series set against the backdrop of America’s most popular auto racing organization.

‘The Cuphead Show!’

The 2017 video game “Cuphead” became a smash hit because of its gorgeous visuals, inspired by 1930s animation, and its insanely difficult gameplay. Netflix is going to be the home of a new animated series that expands the imaginative world of the game without making you want to throw your controller against a wall. “The Cuphead Show!” will follow Cuphead and his brother Mugman as they get into misadventures on the Inkwell Isles. Studio MDHR, the maker of the game, is behind the show’s production.

‘Firefly Lane’

This is another new Netflix show based on a bestselling book that boasts some recognizable lead actors. “Firefly Lane” is a drama about the lives of two best friends who develop a deep bond over the span of four decades that is suddenly torn apart after a betrayal. Katherine Heigl and Sarah Chalke play the two women at the center of the story. The 10-episode first season is being developed by Maggie Friedman, the writer behind “Witches of East End,” and is expected to debut in 2021.

‘First Kill’

Author V.E. Schwab is known for her best-selling novels but this Netflix series is based on one of her short stories. “First Kill” is about a young vampire who is getting ready to make her first kill but unwittingly chooses a victim who comes from a family of vampire hunters. The season will consist of eight hour-long episodes and will be produced by Emma Roberts, of “American Horror Story” fame.

‘From Scratch’

The products and services mentioned below were selected independent of sales and advertising. However, TheDelite may receive a small commission from the purchase of any products or services through an affiliate link to the retailer's website.

The memoir that this limited series is based on has hundreds of five-star ratings from readers at Amazon, many of whom will no doubt be eagerly awaiting its premiere. Zoe Saldana, pictured here, will star as an American woman who falls in love with a Sicilian man as she’s studying abroad in Italy, eventually bringing him back home where they try to build a life. Reese Witherspoon has signed on as an executive producer alongside Saldana, giving “From Scratch” some A-list star power that isn’t always common in Netflix original shows.

‘Ginny & Georgia’

The WB classic, “Gilmore Girls,” has been one of Netflix’s most popular offerings for years and this new show will give fans a new mother-daughter story to enjoy. “Ginny & Georgia” is about Ginny, a 15-year-old girl, and Georgia, her 30-year-old mother, as they try to settle into a normal life in New England after years on the run. Georgia’s past catches up to them and threatens to undo their work, providing plenty of juicy drama. Antonia Gentry and Brianne Howey, shown here, will star as the pair.

‘The Girls on the Bus’

The products and services mentioned below were selected independent of sales and advertising. However, TheDelite may receive a small commission from the purchase of any products or services through an affiliate link to the retailer's website.

This intriguing new political drama takes its title from the classic 1973 book, “The Boys on the Bus,” which followed reporters who covered the 1972 presidential election on the road with the candidates. “The Girls on the Bus” is based on reporter Amy Chozick’s 2018 account of the 2016 presidential election, “Chasing Hillary.” This show will follow four journalists, all women, as they follow the campaigns led by flawed fictional politicians on a cross-country trek.

‘Grace and Frankie’ — Season Seven

Netflix’s long-running, acclaimed comedy, “Grace and Frankie,” is coming up on its seventh and final season. The new batch of episodes won’t debut until 2021 but the people behind the series got together earlier this year to give fans a sneak peek. The entire cast did a live, virtual table read of the first episode of the new season in April. The show stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as women who suddenly become friends following a stunning development in each of their marriages.

‘Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight’

Horror lovers will want to turn this one on after dark. “Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight” is being produced by the renowned scare master and sounds like an anthology series, where each episode tells an entirely new story with different actors each time. The show is set to be Netflix’s first original horror anthology series and will see del Toro, shown here, directing some of its episodes. A release from the studio says that the Oscar-winning filmmaker also chose the writers for the show himself, picking some of the best scribes in the genre.

‘Hit and Run’

This action thriller was partially filmed on location in Israel and follows a man who searches across borders for his wife’s killers after she is the victim of a hit-and-run in Tel Aviv. The first season of “Hit and Run” is expected to run for nine episodes and will star Lior Raz, shown here, who is also the show’s co-creator and executive producer. Raz was also behind Netflix’s hit Israeli series “Fauda,” which has been acclaimed by viewers and critics. The majority of episodes will be directed by Mike Barker, who is best known for directing 12 episodes of Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

‘In From the Cold’

We can never get enough of a good spy thriller and that’s exactly what this series sounds like. “In From the Cold” is about a woman living the life of a suburban mom in New Jersey when her past as a highly trained and deadly Russian secret agent comes to light. She’s forced by the American government to work against her native country. Margarita Levieva, shown here, will lead the cast alongside co-stars Ivanna Sakhno and Lydia Fleming in this show that is described by Netflix as “female-driven.”

‘Inventing Anna’

This new drama sounds pretty juicy if you ask us. “Inventing Anna” is based on a New York Magazine article about Anna Sorokin, a Russian woman who pretended to be a German heiress named Anna Delvey and who defrauded wealthy New York society members out of their money. The show, which is in production now and will have a 10-episode first season, will dramatize the work done by journalist Jessica Pressler in uncovering the truth about Sorokin’s identity and scheme.

Shonda Rhimes is listed as the show’s creator and executive producer, giving it the built-in audience of her loyal fans. The cast is stellar and will include two-time Emmy winner Julia Garner (shown here), from Netflix’s “Ozark,” Laverne Cox and Anna Chlumsky.

‘Jupiter’s Legacy’

Ever since Netflix had to scrap all of its Marvel TV shows in the wake of the launch of Disney+, fans of superhero dramas have been waiting for the next adventure. That’s where “Jupiter’s Legacy” comes in. This ambitious series is based on a series of graphic novels and blends high-flying action with family drama. It’s about the first generation of superheroes reaching retirement, tasked with passing the duty of protecting the world onto their kids, who may or may not be up for the job. Its cast includes Josh Duhamel, shown here, and Leslie Bibb. The show is slated for a 2021 premiere.

‘Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous’ — Season Two

In September, Netflix debuted the first season of an original animated series set in the world of the Jurassic Park franchise. “Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous” delivered eight half-hour episodes that followed a group of teens who attend an adventure camp on the island where the infamous dinosaur park operates. Shortly after the first season dropped, Netflix announced that it had ordered a second batch of episodes. These dinosaurs will truly never go extinct!

‘Karma’s World’

This new animated musical series for children is coming from rapper Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, who created it. The series is aimed at kids ages 6-9 and is based on an educational website Bridges helped launch in 2009. It follows a 10-year-old girl named Karma, who wants to be a musician, and the first batch of episodes will include 40 different 11-minute installments. The show’s main character is actually inspired by Bridges’ own daughter, who shares her name.

‘Kid Cosmic’

Craig McCracken, the creator of Cartoon Network’s beloved classic “The Powerpuff Girls,” is behind this new animated series. “Kid Cosmic” is about a kid who dreams of being a superhero and then becomes one quite by accident. The only drag is that he apparently stinks at his new vocation, making him second-guess his wish. Young actor Jack Fisher is slated to voice the lead role of The Kid. No artwork from the series has been released yet but McCracken gave some insight into his process and what to expect from it in this promotional video from Netflix that he tweeted in late 2018 when the project was announced.

‘Love, Death & Robots’ —  Volume Two

The first batch of short films in the “Love, Death & Robots” series dropped in 2019 and became a hit with lovers of sci-fi animation. Rather than producing typical seasons made up of full-length episodes, this series is released in volumes of individual stories that range in length from about five minutes to 20 minutes each. Netflix has announced that new episodes are on the way but a date hasn’t been set. The show currently holds a stellar average score of 8.5/10 from more than 85,000 users at IMDb.

‘Lucifer’ — Season Six

When Fox canceled “Lucifer” after three seasons, fans were disappointed. But Netflix swooped in and rescued the series from the junk bin. The studio produced and aired a fourth season in 2019 and a fifth season this summer. A sixth season is currently in production and it will apparently be the last ride for the popular show — for real this time — based on tweets from co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich. For the uninitiated, the series follows Lucifer as he comes to Los Angeles and runs a nightclub.

‘Maya and the Three’

This series has been building plenty of buzz since it was first announced by Netflix in 2018. “Maya and the Three” is a kids’ show inspired by Mesoamerican mythology and follows the adventures of Maya, a warrior princess. The show is set to be a limited series that will be told in nine half-hour episodes that are expected to debut in 2021. Jorge Gutierrez, the director of the acclaimed film, “The Book of Life,” is behind this new Netflix original.

‘Midnight Mass’

“The Haunting of Hill House” is widely recognized as one of Netflix’s greatest original productions and this new show is coming from its creator. There aren’t many specifics known about the series yet but it’s slated for seven episodes and its premise sounds intriguing and very creepy. Netflix says it will follow members of a community who experience “miraculous events and frightening omens after a mysterious priest’s arrival.”

The writer behind “The Haunting of Hill House” and “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” Mike Flanagan (shown here), is also listed as a creator of this new show.

‘My Dad the Bounty Hunter’

Kids will probably love this fun new sci-fi animated comedy. “My Dad the Bounty Hunter” comes from the Oscar-winning animator behind the short film “Hair Love” and follows a guy who is renowned as the toughest bounty hunter in the galaxy. His family on Earth have no clue about that part of his life until his kids accidentally crash one of his missions and discover their dad has the coolest job imaginable. It stars Russell Hornsby, Yvonne Orji and Rob Riggle. No release date has yet been announced.


Opioid overdoses have killed hundreds of thousands of Americans in the past 20 years and this new hard-hitting show aims to look at the origins of the epidemic. “Painkiller” will be a scripted drama and it comes from some serious players in the TV world. Eric Newman, shown here, the man behind Netflix’s “Narcos,” is listed as executive producer. Alex Gibney, the documentarian behind films like “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief” and “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room,” is also executive producing. And Noah Harpster, of Amazon’s “Transparent,” is co-writing the show.

‘Pieces of Her’

The always powerful Toni Collette, pictured here, is set to star in this new Netflix drama alongside Bella Heathcote. The duo will play an adult mother-daughter pair who try to understand the truth about their family after an act of violence turns their world upside down. The story begins in what is described as a “sleepy Georgia town” and the pair of characters end up going on a cross-country journey before it’s over. A release date hasn’t been set.

‘Raising Dion’ — Season Two

The first season of this Netflix original delighted viewers with its diverse cast and heartfelt storyline — two rarities in the superhero genre. “Raising Dion” is about a woman trying to raise her young son after the death of her husband, while also working to keep the boy’s superpowers under wraps from people who would exploit them. The cast is led by Alisha Wainwright and Ja’Siah Young and also includes big names like Michael B. Jordan and Jason Ritter. The streamer says that a second season is on the way soon, although a premiere date hasn’t yet been announced.

‘The Sandman’

The casting details for Netflix’s highly anticipated adaptation of “The Sandman” comics still haven’t been announced but the show recently started filming. The show will follow the stories of Morpheus, aka the Dream King, which were depicted in author Neil Gaiman’s groundbreaking comic books. Gaiman himself is producing the series, which has been developed by the writer of 2017’s hit film “Wonder Woman.”

‘Sex Education’ — Season Three

Gillian Anderson and Asa Butterfield co-star in this adult comedy as a mother-son duo with a unique dynamic. Anderson plays a frank sex therapist and Butterfield plays her awkward teen son who sets up a sex clinic at his school to give classmates advice that he’s gleaned from his mother’s expertise. A third season of episodes is currently in production — reportedly with rigorous COVID-19 protocols in place — and that’s good news for fans who’ve given this show stellar ratings at IMDb.

‘Shadow and Bone’

Author Leigh Bardugo’s set of fantasy-adventure novels are getting a Netflix adaptation in this new series, which wrapped filming in February. “Shadow and Bone” is about a teen orphan who grows up in a fictional land that was inspired by Russia. Her life becomes a whole lot more interesting when she realizes she has the power to manipulate the elements and use them to her advantage. Actor Jessie Mei Li is starring as the lead character, Alina Starkov.

In an announcement in January 2019, Netflix specifically said Bardugo’s books, “Shadow and Bone” and “Six of Crows,” would be adapted for the series.

‘Tiny Pretty Things’

The products and services mentioned below were selected independent of sales and advertising. However, TheDelite may receive a small commission from the purchase of any products or services through an affiliate link to the retailer's website.

This will be a juicy addition to Netflix’s library of original shows when it drops. The series is an adaptation of the novel, which has been described as a cross between “Pretty Little Liars” and “Black Swan.” “Tiny Pretty Things” is set inside an elite ballet academy in Chicago and follows the ups and downs of its diverse student body. The show is being developed by Michael MacLennan, who created the series, “Bomb Girls.” It has been slated for a 2020 release but it’s unclear if that is still the case.

‘Vikings: Valhalla’

The production schedule for this ambitious new Netflix series was recently delayed by some COVID-19 tests that yielded false positives. The show is shooting in Ireland and is apparently back in action after the issue. This will be a sequel to the History Channel’s popular series, “Vikings.” Its action will pick up the story 100 years after that show, telling the stories of the most famous Vikings who ever lived, including Leif Erikson, Freydis and Harald Hardrada. It’s expected to air in 2021 and comes from original “Vikings” creator Michael Hirst, who is shown here.

‘The Woman in the House’

Netflix is teaming up with Kristen Bell for this new limited series that doesn’t yet have a firm release date. “The Woman in the House” is set for an eight-episode run and Bell will both star in it and serve as executive producer. She will play a bored woman who enjoys staring out the window and drinking wine. Her life is pretty dull until she witnesses a gruesome murder across the street — at least, that’s what she thinks she saw. Will Ferrell is also listed as an executive producer.

‘You’ — Season Three

Viewers who have been gripped by the creepiness of Netflix’s original series, “You,” will have a new batch of episodes to binge. The show follows a charming man who gets obsessed with people and finds ways to insert himself into their lives. It comes from a partnership between the director of “Love, Simon” and the co-creator of SyFy’s “The Magicians” and has clearly found an audience on Netflix. The studio says the third season will drop in 2021.
