It hasn’t been long since Netflix came up with its streaming service. However, considering the success it has met within a very short span of time, it can be understood that it is due to the quality content that it has provided in all sections of entertainment, from films to series. While it is a collection house for movies and TV shows from decades back in time, Netflix has made its name for the original content that it brings for its international audience. The presence of its movies has increased in film festivals and award shows, and from the past couple of years, including this one, Netflix has made its strong presence felt even in the Academy Awards. However, what actually entices its audience is the streak of amazing TV shows that it comes up with every year. ‘Mindhunter’, ‘The Crown’, ‘Stranger Things’ and ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ are only a couple of shows that took the world by storm.
One of the things that make Netflix better is that with its hold over almost all of the world, it hasn’t hesitated in investing in the cinema of foreign languages. From Korean shows to Indian tales, Netflix seems to be focused on only one thing- expansion. And that’s nothing if not good news for us binge-watchers. With ‘Always a Witch’, ‘Nightflyers’ (based on the novella by George R.R Martin) and ‘Russian Doll’ already released, the standards have only increased for the upcoming shows. Here is the list of the upcoming new shows coming out on Netflix in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that these latest Netflix shows are as good as some of the recent series it produced.
18. Madam C.J Walker Project (2019)
Sarah Breedlove was an African-American entrepreneur who changed everyone’s views about what women, especially the African-Americans, could do in the society. In the late 1800s, she came up with beauty and hair products for black women and became one of the most successful people in America. In fact, she is said to be the first ever self-made millionaire woman in the history of the country. No matter how great the results were, her story was full of trials and struggles, and that’s why it is more important to acknowledge the journey than its outcome. In an effort of that, Netflix is producing a limited series based on her life, in which Octavia Spencer will play the lead role.
17. Raising Dion (2019)
This sci-fi series will be based around a woman who discovers new struggles of raising her young son. Nicole’s husband, Mark, was a scientist. However, a tragic incident resulted in his death and this left Nicole alone to raise their only son.
