8 Upcoming Netflix Shows We’re Excited to Binge-Watch This 2021

Plus, some of our favorite Netflix shows that are expected to return for a new season!

Even though the pandemic has affected the production of many films and shows, Netflix continued to deliver a rich lineup of movies and series to us subscribers last year. Especially during a time when we were mostly at home, these titles really helped us cope and connect with our loved ones, arranging online watch parties or just streaming with our family at home.

Of course, Netflix would not be stopping any moment in delivering quality content for its viewers. Besides its exciting lineup of movies for the year, the streaming giant will also be releasing a number of promising shows, making that subscription fee well worth it!
