8. Too Hot to Handle

Premiere date: April 17, 2020

Show description: Hot singles gather on an island with one rule and one rule only: Keep your hands to yourself and you could win $100,000! To most people, this is an easy task, but for the bunch Netflix was able to scoop up, it may be impossible. Even knowing that all they need to do is last four weeks without any sexual contact to win the cash proves to be incredibly difficult.

Why it’s one of 2020’s best: The year 2020 is for all things unexpected! Who knew Netflix would also master the genre of trash TV gold?

Though watching gets a bit frustrating at times, Too Hot to Handle is a show you can’t look away from. The concept attracted many fans and was all the rage for several weeks.

7. Cheer

Premiere date: Jan. 8, 2020

Show description: The docuseries Cheer follows the Navarro College Bulldogs Cheer Team, a nationally ranked cheer team from Corsicana, Texas.

Audiences meet coach Monica Aldama and her cheerleaders as they are training to compete in the annually held National Cheerleading Championship in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Why it’s one of 2020’s best: Before the year 2020 showed its true colors, Netflix gave us Cheer and it truly kicked off the year on a great note.

The docuseries walks us through the tough and intensive training these young athletes go through, as well as gives us a look at their personal lives. Audiences quickly become invested in the team after watching them work so hard and learning about their journeys.
