Welcome to possibly the biggest preview we’ve ever put together. This is our comprehensive list of every TV series both new and returning scheduled to release at some point in 2020.
It’s important to note that we don’t quite have a full picture of what’s coming to Netflix in 2020 and also worth noting this list does not include everything, only what’s been announced so far. We believe it’s the most comprehensive list of the series coming to Netflix in 2020.
Further 2020 guides will be published by us over the next few weeks although we’ve already got a dedicated preview of all the K-Drama content we’re expecting in 2020.
