List Rules Only brand-new shows on Netflix that have premiered so far in 2019

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.
