Best Netflix shows

Fall 2021 is off to a great start on Netflix. There are so many good shows on the way, including new seasons of On My Block, You, Locke and Key, and more!

It’s already been such a good year for Netflix original shows so far. Outer Banks was the hottest show of the summer, but in October, November and December, the list of new releases looks really good.

We saw so many good shows in September 2021, including Sex Education season 3, Money Heist season 5, Lucifer season 6, Dear White People season 4, Midnight Mass, The Circle season 3, Blood and Water season 2, and more.

Netflix has also announced release dates for other shows coming later this year, including The Witcher season 2, Emily in Paris season 2, Cobra Kai season 4, Cowboy Bebop and more!

Overall, the list of good Netflix shows of 2021 is a little slimmer than in past years, and that’s because the pandemic interrupted production for most of 2020. Don’t worry, though! As mentioned, here are a bunch of new Netflix shows on the way later this year!

While you wait, check out the list of the best Netflix shows to watch right now.

Let’s get the list started with a fan-favorite Netflix show, Squid Game!

Squid Game is officially the Netflix show of the fall so far! The new Netflix original series premiered in September 2021, and as we learned from Ted Sarandos recently, Squid Game is expected to be one of the biggest Netflix shows of all time, along with Bridgerton, Stranger Things, The Witcher, and others.

The Korean series tells the story of more than 400 people who start playing twisted games based on Korean children’s games for the ultimate grand prize of more than $100 million (US).

We’re hoping that Squid Game season 2 is going to happen soon! According to various reports, it sounds like there are details being ironed out for the new season, but we’ll have to wait and see. Nothing is official until it is.

Stay tuned for more news about Squid Game season 2!
