Favorite New Shows of 2021

It's becoming harder and harder to stay up to date on the new TV shows that exist in the world, what with alllll of the different streaming services available. Top that off with feeling exhausted half the time and often I find I'd like to watch an old favorite rather than dive into something completely new. But, that doesn't mean I haven't watched some of the new shows that debuted this year.

So let's get on with it, my list of my favorite new TV shows watched this year...


You're going to notice quite a few different Disney+ Marvel TV shows on this list. Yes, I'm a Marvel fan. However, you will also notice one show missing, and it's true that I did not really like that one compared to the rest. The one I enjoyed the most was definitely Loki, with its twisty turny narrative and great cast. The fact that these shows also have implications for the larger MCU is also cool as that's never really been done before, at least that I'm aware of. Can't wait for the next season, whenever that may be.


Apparently some people aren't big fans of Hailee Steinfeld, which was news to me as I have always enjoyed her. Here, she joins the MCU as Kate Bishop, who it looks like will be taking over the mantel as the new Hawkeye. I was never a big fan of Hawkeye in the Avengers movies, but this show has made me like him, so there you go. While it's not over yet, the show is only six episodes long, and I think it's safe to assume it won't suddenly lose my interest.


WandaVision is very creative, and while it was slow going at first to actually get to the story, it was definitely going somewhere and not just meandering for no reason. Though I'm not sure it really stuck the landing as well as it could have, I was nonetheless enthralled throughout and couldn't wait for each new episode. It was nice to see these characters explored more fully than in the films, and now I am looking forward to see where they go next.


I almost didn't include this show in here because while I think it's well done, I'm not sure I really loved it, if that makes sense. I found one of the main characters a bit hard to like, and though that was part of the character's supposed "charm," it was difficult to get past sometimes. Still, Jean Smart is awesome, and if you watch it just for her alone, you will probably be mostly satisfied.

Any new shows you loved that I should check out? Let me know in the comments!
