UPDATED: Check out The Best Original Streaming Platform Shows of 2020!

Television has grown far beyond the cable box and original series from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and YouTube Premium have expanded the range of shows we watch and how we watch them. There is almost a daring flexibility to streaming originals, and the best streaming series in 2019 are ready to shake up your TV nights.

Streaming TV platforms often acquire shows from other channels, but what they do with their original programming is impressive. The flexibility of streaming services can make it a great place for reboots of old favorites, like Carmen Sandiego from Netflix. Platforms like YouTube Premium are newer additions to the already still-fresh world of steaming originals, but they're gearing up to add some great shows to 2019's new streaming series, like Wayne.

Although some streaming shows still dole out episodes weekly, others let you binge a new season all at once. There are pros (no waiting for new episodes!) and cons (there are no new episodes!) to each style but however you watch them, these are the best new shows on streaming platforms in 2019. Vote up the best new Hulu and Amazon Originals, Netflix original series, and YouTube Premium shows - then add original streaming shows newly premiered in 2019 that we might have missed.

Then, check out all the streaming shows available in 2020.
