The best new shows 2021 is bringing are a balm to minds and a blessing to watchlists. This list of upcoming TV shows for 2021 includes not only reboots, spinoffs, miniseries, but plenty of refreshingly new shows from HBO and HBO Max, upcoming Netflix original series, and even more additions to other streaming services like Hulu, Apple TV+, and Disney+. Of all the upcoming TV shows 2021 has to offer, which series are you most excited to see?

Some of the new TV shows in 2021 were supposed to premiere last year but didn't, making the most anticipated shows of 2021 even more anticipated. Everything from adaptations of classic science fiction and fantasy, like The Lord of the Rings and Foundation, to comic book shows like WandaVision, Green Lantern, and the miniseries event that will be Zack Snyder's Justice League will be coming to your screens in 2021. If nerdy stuff doesn't have a place on your watchlist, there are still plenty of new dramas to be excited for, like the return of Gossip Girl, or Jared Padalecki in Walker, the reboot of Walker, Texas Ranger. For those who need some fresh frights, series such as American Horror Stories and Clarice will be welcome additions to your new year.

What new series are you looking forward to the most in 2021? Vote up the TV shows you can't wait to watch.
