I’m sure I’m not the only one to say that this year felt like the longest in history. March alone lasted 6 months and the lockdown seemed to have helped little over time.
But stay at a social distance-home orders and regional restrictions, for all of us there was one thing. One thing that has never failed to provide comfort, laughter, new experiences and entertainment: That is Netflix.
Coronavirus outbreak caused many productions had to be shut down this year. However, Netflix was able to deliver new series such as The Crown, Lucifer, The Queen’s Gambit, and The Haunting of Bly Manor. With so many shows back on track, here are some of the best series back in 2021.
You – Season three
Despite moving to the suburbs, there’s no doubt Joe Goldberg is still thinking about how to rebuild his rare book room Slash Prison for new season of YOU. We followed Joe to Los Angeles, where he met Love and fell head-on with her and her “wolf.”
After a turbulent series full of more deaths, fraud and tragedy, the pair gradually emerged the happy family as they prepared to start their new life in the suburbs. If it wasn’t long for someone new to catch Joe’s eye, especially as they live next door.
The exact release date is yet to be confirmed, but the shooting is expected to be wrapped up in April before being released later in 2021.
Lucifer – Season five, part two
For Lucifer fans who first learned about the episode in 2019, the completion of Season 5 has long been awaited. The first half of the season arrived at Netflix in August of this year, but was delayed to the last eight episodes due to production suspension.
Star Tom Ellis and the rest of the cast were finally able to shoot again from where they left off, and they finished filming the October season. At the time, showrunner Joe Henderson warned fans that ‘there’s a lot to do’. It’s getting Netflix ready, and he’s said ‘definitely’ will not arrive in December, but Ellis has expressed his belief that the season will come ‘early next year’.
Cobra Kai – Season three
Fans of The Karate Kid will be delighted to learn that the spin-off series Cobra Kai is one of the first shows to return in 2021 with season 3 halting yesterday on January 1st. The new season begins in the aftermath of Season 2.
The finale saw Cobra Kai and Miyagi-Do students face off.
Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) investigates what happens after Miguel (Shoro Mariduena) is kicked on the balcony by Robbie (Tanner Buchanan) and while Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) is looking for answers in the past. Zabka ( keeps following) when he is seeking redemption.
Stranger Things – Season four
What on earth happened to Hopper? Who will protect Hawkins when the fiercely determined Joyce takes Eleven under her wings and moves away with Will and Jonathan? Does Eleven have any more power?
These are just some of the questions we have after the third season of Bizarre Stories is over, but I hope you don’t wait too long to find an answer. Although the release date has not yet been confirmed, the show resumed filming in September after the coronavirus ended, and just a few weeks later, the creators released the episode titles for the new season, giving fans a teaser on what was ready.
Sex Education – Season three
Netflix announced the third season of their beloved British comedy in February, but the show officially began production in September. There was no award to guess why it was late. Shooting was originally scheduled to begin in April. The previous two seasons Fell in January, but it’s likely that creators wanted the same in 2021.
That is unlikely to be the case now, but if they manage to stick to the same production schedule we could expect to see Otis, Eric and the gang back on our screens sometime towards the end of the summer of 2021.
