Top 5 Most Anticipated New Shows of 2020

With HBO Max, Peacock, Disney+, and Apple TV+ joining the ranks of television, there were more options to choose from than ever. We managed to whittle down the list to the 5 most anticipated new shows of 2020.

1. Star Trek: Picard (CBS All Access)

Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart), Star Trek’s best captain, returns 20 years after the events of the film Star Trek: Nemesis for a series focused on him. Picard will still be devastated following the death of Data and the destruction of Romulus, and it sounds like much of the show will involve him getting his mojo back. (Jan. 23)

2. The Good Lord Bird (Showtime)

Based on James McBride’s 2013 novel, The Good Lord Bird is set in the 1850s and follows a young boy who mixes with famous figures from the Civil War, including abolitionist John Brown, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, and more. Ethan Hawke produces and stars as Brown in the miniseries, which also stars Daveed Diggs and Wyatt Russell. (Feb. 16)

3. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Disney+)

The Marvel Cinematic Universe gets its first TV series on Disney+, with Captain America’s buddies Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) carrying on after the events of Avengers: Endgame. It’s been described as a buddy comedy, in the tone of the Lethal Weapon films, except neither of these guys is too old. Wyatt Russell stars in this show, too. (Fall 2020)

4. Maniac Cop (HBO)

The 1988 cult horror movie (trailer above) is getting remade by the perfect cinematic genius/weirdo: Nicolas Winding Refn (Too Old to Die Young), and we can’t think of a better pairing. It’s been Refn’s dream to redo the film, about a killer who dresses like a cop — imagine that being your dream — and he promises that it will look not only at a psycho sowing discord in the city, but also at the ruination of society. Sign us up. Twice. (2020)

5. Kevin Can F**K Himself (AMC)

The trope of the sitcom wife as the put-upon woman by the schlubby man-child husband gets taken to the next level in this meta comedy. We’ll finally see the world through the eyes of the stereotypical sitcom wife, both in the context of the multi-camera show that she’s in and what happens outside the show. Is it too late to sign Erinn Hayes up for this? (Likely 2020)
