Netflix has inspired many companies like Amazon, Apple, Disney, and HBO to start their own streaming services and yet, it continues to reign all over them. Netflix changed the way we saw television and cinema. Even with the availability of other options, the word “streaming” has been synonymous with Netflix. It hasn’t been long since Netflix turned its focus from just licensing movies and TV shows to creating new ones too. Recently, it announced that the major focus will now be on producing new TV shows and movies in countries where the service is available. We are not complaining, because we get to see not only amazing Indian originals like Yeh Ballet and Maska but some international gems as well. Here are some upcoming Netflix originals you need to keep an eye out for in 2020.
