UPDATED: Check out the Reality TV Series airing new episodes in 2021!

This list looks at the best current television reality shows that will be airing new episodes in 2020. Not only are there lots of new reality TV shows premiering in 2020 but many favorite reality series are returning. Each show keeps it real (well, real enough), but which are the best new and returning reality TV shows in 2020?

The reality competition show seems to be king in 2020. Most of the reality television airing in 2020 is some sort of reality talent competition with shows including old favorites such as The Masked Singer, RuPaul's Drag Race, World Of Dance and more. Other reality TV shows on the air in 2020 has more of a docudrama angle. There are also plenty of shows such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and the Real Housewives franchise that combine the sense of documentary with maybe the purest or most traditional form of reality television: watching other people's lives.

Which reality TV shows are you going to watch in 2020? Keep it real by voting up the best new and returning reality shows to air in 2020.
