Best Returning Shows of 2021
Apple TV+ wins in quantity, but the HBO still retains the #1 spot.BY ZACH DECEMBER 26, 2021
In addition to my annual Best New Shows list, I've also selected 7 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.
