Best Returning Shows of 2021
Apple TV+ wins in quantity, but the HBO still retains the #1 spot.BY ZACH DECEMBER 29, 2021
In addition to my annual Best New Shows list, I've also selected 10 shows in their 2nd season or later which stood out as high quality television.
Most notably, Apple TV+ is starting to earn a reputation for their original series getting better in their second seasons. This might be a coincidence, or it may have something do do with their massive pile of cash allowing them to greenlight new shows for multiple seasons at a time like Netflix used to do back in the day (House of Cards). Regardless of the reason, Apple put out 3 stellar sophomore seasons this year that are worth catching up on.
Netflix, HBO, and Hulu all earned 1 show each on this list, and the final show actually comes from Channel 4 in the UK.
