Netflix has faced many challenges in 2019 with the launch of several new streaming platforms including Disney+, Apple TV+ and BritBox. Next year, there will be even more contenders entering the streaming game with HBO Max trying to get a slice of the pie from Netflix. More streamers are in the works, so it’s only a matter of time before the television online industry becomes even more crowded.
This year marked a shift for Netflix which has now become more brutal in cutting shows which aren’t working and moving on with new content.
The service is trying to tap into existing fanbases as well as producing new compelling TV shows.
With the advent of 2020, Express.co.uk has put together a full list of Netflix releases for this year.
The list is comprised of shows which Netflix has recommissioned and will be updated regularly as Netflix announces new shows and release dates.
There will also be popular TV shows which Netflix airs in the UK on this list.
