Subscribe To 2020 Netflix Schedule: Premiere Dates For New And Returning Shows Updates
Despite the new and impending arrivals of such powerhouse streaming services as Disney+, HBO Max and Peacock, the world of quality streaming media still belongs squarely to Netflix, and the company is showing no signs of backing down from pressure. In fact, 2020 will be another breakthrough year for Netflix, with a slew of big-budget shows to complement its growing number of less-pricy projects.
With follow-up seasons to popular shows such as Stranger Things and 13 Reasons Why, 2020 is going to be a huge year for Netflix, which will also boost up its feature side with Eddie Murphy's long-awaited Beverly Hills Cop 4 and other noteworthy acquisitions. Combine those with lots of big-named comedy specials, killer docu-series and franchise-connecting animated series, and there might be little time to focus on other streaming services in 2020.
Check out our monthly rundown below, noting that all release times are at 3:01 a.m. ET (12:01 a.m. PT), and that all brand new series will be listed in ALL CAPS.

Kingdom Season 2 - Netflix's first Korean series, Kingdom centers on a royal figure's life getting upended by both a political conspiracy and the rise of an undead plague.
More 2020 Netflix Premieres Yet To Be Announced
Understandably, Netflix has a ton of projects that are either currently in production, or are on their way to that outcome. As such, the streaming service has yet to provide official release dates for many of the shows that we already know are getting new seasons. Netflix has, by and large, kept premiere dates close to its vest, so expect for that to remain the case in 2020.
After Life Season 2
