2020 is seeing a massive shift to online streaming with the hugely successful Netflix show exploding. Here are the best TV shows on Netflix in 2020.
Which Netflix TV Shows are the best in 2020? The pandemic has undoubtedly led to a boom in online streaming, resulting in increased views among various population groups. While most television channels and services struggle with a lack of newer programming, Netflix has managed to overshadow them significantly.
Even amid the pandemic, Netflix has released many new films, TV shows and documentaries, adding 28 million paid Netflix memberships over a nine-month period. This is partly because people have more time at home due to social distancing, which stimulates an accelerated tendency to watch overeating and streaming.
While 2020 is an uneven year for the big screen, there are many TV shows that feature promising premises and appeal to global constructs and connected characters. Here are photos of the best Netflix TV shows of the year.
1. The Queen’s Gambit
Scott Frank’s adaptation of Walter Tevis’ novel of the same name, The Queen’s Gambit, quickly became a Netflix hit that sparked a passion for chess. The Queen’s Gambit is basically the story of Beth (Anya Taylor-Joy), an orphaned chess champion who struggles to navigate the competitive male-dominated world of Cold War chess. On her way to success, Beth must face the devil within herself and the obstacles life throws at her.
2. The Crown
Crown season four opens with Elizabeth (Olivia Coleman) and Philip (Tobias Menzies) at the family vacation home in the Scottish Highlands. Royal Family guests include Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson) and her husband Dennis (Stephen Boxer). Based on narrative skill and performance, it could be argued that Season 4 of The Crown is the best in the series (so far) because it is more independent, carefully crafted, and a lot more fun.
3. Anna with An E.
Based on the book series by Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, season 3 of Anne With a E continues Anne’s Wild Journey (Amybeth McNulty), which is filled with contemporary themes and subjects such as sexual harassment, censorship and harassment. Season 3 starts with Anne’s 16th birthday and further explores the dynamics of tension between her and Marila.
4. Cobra Kai
The second season of Cobra Kai started right where the first season stopped. Cobra Kai, who recently won the All Valley Karate tournament, still annoys sensei Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), who escalates when his protégé Miguel takes a somewhat controversial step that undermines the true spirit of the game.
5. Umbrella Academy
The live adaptation of the Dark Horse Comic series by Gerard Way-Gabriel Ba, Season 2 of the Umbrella Academy, offers more powerful performances and more precise narrative performances than its predecessor. Season 2 arrives amidst the chaos that brought viewers in the early 60’s thanks to the power of Number Five (Aidan Gallagher) to teleport and travel through time.
