Netflix Shows Coming Soon to Netflix in 2021 & Beyond

netflix original series coming in 2021 and beyond

Welcome to our preview of all of the Netflix Original TV shows we currently know about coming to Netflix in 2021, 2022, and beyond. Treat it as the upcoming series bible for Netflix. It’s a big one, and in fact, we don’t think we’ve even scratched the surface of what Netflix has in store over the next few years. 

Quite a few caveats to add before we dive into the list. This list is far from complete. We believe a definitive list of upcoming English language series doesn’t actually exist because there are just so many projects in development.

Secondly, we’re going to restrict this list to English main speaking titles only to keep it at a respectable length. That means titles like Money Heist or Elite won’t be on here.

With all that said, let’s get started.
