Congratulations are in order, because we’ve nearly made it to the end of 2020. One of the main reasons we’ve stayed (semi) sane is Netflix, which has blessed us with countless original shows over the past 12 months.
The 8 Best Netflix Original Shows of 2020
1. 'the Queen's Gambit'
During the Cold War era, a bright orphan named Elizabeth “Beth” Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy) discovers she’s a chess prodigy. Can she achieve her dream of becoming the world’s greatest Grandmaster?
2. 'love On The Spectrum'
This show follows seven young adults on the autism spectrum as they take on the dating world, one unpredictable relationship at a time.
3. 'virgin River'
Meet Melinda “Mel” Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge), a nurse practitioner who moves to the remote California town (Virgin River) to get a fresh start in life. Last month, Netflix released the show’s highly anticipated season two, which picked up right where we left off.
4. 'haunting Of Bly Manor'
Season two of the anthology series follows Danielle “Dani” Clayton (Victoria Pedretti), a young governess who is hired by a man to look after his niece and nephew. The problem? The grounds are haunted by a terrifying ghost named “The Lady in the Lake.”
5. 'the Crown'
This historical drama offers a look at the political rivalries and romances of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign, along with the events that shaped the second half of the 20th century. There’ve been four seasons in total (with the most recent being released last month).
Emma Green (played by Hilary Swank) is tasked with commanding the first manned mission to Mars. Since it will be the longest outer-space flight in history (three years!), she’s forced to leave behind her husband, NASA engineer Matt Logan (Josh Charles), and her teenage daughter, Alexis (Talitha Bateman).
Join the Navarro College Bulldogs Cheer Team who face injuries, setbacks and new tricks as they prepare for the National Cheerleading Championship.
8. 'love Is Blind'
Love Is Blind is not your average dating show. Instead, singles attempt to find their perfect match without ever seeing the person face-to-face.
