Netflix has hundreds of TV shows in development at any time, and thanks to IMDb’s MOVIEmeter, we can look at Netflix’s most anticipated shows and movies according to you! 

IMDb updates its list of the hottest titles every Monday, sourced from its vast database. These updates are based on the site’s traffic, which continues to draw in over half a billion monthly visits.

If you want to see what movies are hotly anticipated for Netflix, we’re running a separate list for those movies here.

One quick note is that this list is only for the upcoming debut series. That means big returning series like Stranger Things aren’t listed below.

At the time of publishing, the animated reboot of Good Times was just a day away, which is likely why the series ranks so high up on the IMDb MovieMeter. More pertinently, its popularity may not necessarily be a good thing as the series, which serves as a reboot of the beloved 1970s sitcom, has caught plenty of flack since it was first unveiled.

Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
