UPDATED: Check out The Best New Netflix Shows That Have Premiered In 2020!

Netflix has definitely been increasing their output of original series in 2019 and we aren't complaining. The best new Netflix shows of 2019 are either already binge-watched or waiting on our watchlists for the next free evening. From original dramas, sci-fi, action, and comedies to thrilling new reality competition shows and fascinating docuseries, the best 2019 Netflix Originals premieres are some great TV and highly anticipated.

The new year started on off on the right foot with the Netflix original series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. Some of the shows that have followed -  from the playful Sex Education to the addictive Russian Doll - also sparked joy. Other Netflix shows, like The Ted Bundy Tapes, or the fantasy horror Kingdom, were gripping and we couldn't tear our eyes away from them but "joy" might be the right word for the emotion they sparked. Of course, that didn't mean we didn't binge them just a little (lot) bit.

What are the best new Netflix series of 2019? Vote up the best new shows people can add to their watchlist below, then see what new shows have premiered in 2020 on Netflix.
