2020 may not be off to a good start but at least we have plenty of exciting shows to accompany us in these trying times. So far, we’ve already gotten several binge-able releases on the streaming site such as supernatural horror series Locke & Key, the much talked about K-drama Crash Landing On You, the coming-of-age comedy drama with a hint of supernatural elements I Am Not Okay with This, and the most recent second season of Korean zombie historical piece Kingdom.

Here are some more exciting Netflix series releases this year:

 

Freud

Release date: March 23

Freud is an Austrian psychological thriller series centered around Sigmund Freud, the famous founder of psychoanalysis. Set in 19th century Vienna, we follow the young Sigmund Freud as he teams up with a psychic and an inspector to find a serial killer. If that premise didn’t immediately hook you, we’re not sure what will. Check out the trailer below:

 

Money Heist Season 4

Release date: April 3

This highly popular heist drama series from Spain follows a group of red jumpsuit-clad, mask-wearing professional criminals who take hostages in order to rob a bank.

Cursed

Release date: TBA

We all know the story of King Arthur and Excalibur a.k.a. the Sword in the Stone. But this reimagining of the famous tale is told through the eyes of one of the story’s integral characters, the Lady of the Lake. Katherine Langford (13 Reasons Why) stars as Nimue, an outcast and a girl with a connection to dark magic. When her whole village is slaughtered, she teams up with a charming mercenary named Arthur and wields Excalibur to battle armies and discover her destiny.

While we don’t have an official trailer yet, some stills have surfaced from the filming of the series.

Shadow & Bone Season 1

Release date: TBA

This show rumored to be released in late 2020 will be based on two fantasy series, Shadow & Bone and Six of Crows, which are both set in the same universe called the Grishaverse. The story follows a young soldier who, when her best friend is severely harmed, unlocks a strong and dangerous power within her that can finally unite her country. Since the trilogy and duology respectively have a different set of characters and have separate plots, it will be interesting to see how the series’ producers, which includes author Leigh Bardugo herself, intertwine the two stories. A notable cast member is Ben Barnes, who we all know and love as Prince Caspian from the Chronicles of Narnia Chronicles movies.

Filming officially ended last February 29 so while we wait for the trailer to drop, here’s a video of the cast introducing themselves and welcoming us into the Grishaverse.

 

Dash & Lily Season 1

Release date: TBA

This is a holiday-themed rom-com adapted from the young adult novel, Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares, which follows two teens, Dash and Lily, who trade dreams, desires, and of course, dares in a notebook they leave all around New York City. Given its holiday theme, this is most likely going to be released around the 4th quarter of this year and we can’t wait for this series to warm our hearts for Christmas 2020.
