Netflix’s annual tradition of flooding your to-be-watched queue is already underway! It’s 2020 now, and it seems like the streaming service is already doing its darndest to match that number when it comes to its Netflix Originals output — OK, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but just a bit.
Even if you’re still playing catch-up from all the films and series from 2019 (or even 2018), Netflix is not slowing down, sorry. The service has already lined up dozens upon dozens of new additions for its library in 2020, from its most popular shows that are returning for a final bow to already-buzzy film projects to those titles that are completely new.
