List RulesVote up the scripted musicals you were most excited to watch (and sing along to) in 2020.

Sometimes there’s nothing to do but sing - at least, that’s what several new musical TV shows in 2020 seemed to believe. From fun songs peppering romantic comedies to beautiful numbers accompanying tense drama, the upcoming musical television series were ready to fill our playlists and our watchlists. From streaming to network, which of the anticipated television musicals were you most excited to see?

Both Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and Katy Keene offered some laughs with their lyrics – though Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is really a dramedy, balancing the fun and songs with emotional moments. But 2020 was the future and musical TV shows were’t limited to frivolity or romantic comedy. In addition to being a musical, the Hulu series Utopia Falls was a science fiction teen drama set in a dystopian near future.

What new musical TV shows were you looking forward to the most in 2020? Vote up the shows you could't wait to watch in 2020.
