Reality TV Shows and Docu-Series That You Have to Watch in 2020

Reality Shows You Need to Watch in 2020



2020 seems to be the year for “reality TV.”

While many staple franchises like The Bachelor, Catfish, and The Voice continue reigning supreme, Netflix and other streaming services are gaining momentum with their innovative and addictive offerings.

It seems like the only thing anyone has talked about lately has been Netflix’s Love Is Blind and The Circle. 

If you’re a reality TV fan or just want to know what all the buzz is about, check out our list of reality TV shows that are addictive and necessary to watch in 2020.

Special shout-out to a few docu-series for making the list!

Love is Blind (Netflix)

Would you be able to marry someone you’ve never seen and only knew 40 days? Well, that’s essentially the basis of Netflix’s Love is Blind. The dating show is on a whole other level as contestants meet in pods without seeing each other, get engaged, and then meet and live together for 40 days before getting married. Is true love possible in such a short time? The series has seen so many reactions including people who think the show is ridiculous to those getting emotional at how it is an accurate description of our current dating climate. The trailer teases that “ethnicity, race, physical appearance,” none of it matters when it comes to true love. See the funniest tweets from the show right here!

The Circle (Netflix)

The Circle is described as Big Brother meets Catfish and questions the authenticity of the image people put out there. Is what we see on social media true? How can we tell? It’s an interesting social experiment of our time as a handful of strangers live in the same apartment building, but they never meet face-to-face as they interact only through a social app that allows them to portray themselves as whoever they want to be. Players then try to figure out who is lying, rate each other, and the lowest-rated ones get eliminated or blocked from the game. You can read our interview with The Circle’s Best Friend Bill now!


Love Island (iTV)

Getting inspiration from The Bachelor, Love Island finds singles arriving at a luxurious villa and completing tasks to stay standing and walk away with the grand prize.

Cheer (Netflix)

Cheer isn’t a reality TV series, per se, but the docu-series has taken the world by storm and allows viewers to tap into the world of competitive cheerleading as it follows the nationally ranked 40-member Navarro College Bulldogs Cheer Team fro Texas as they prepare for a competition in Florida. Five individual members are profiled throughout the 6-episodes.


Lego Masters (FOX)

In 2020, you can make a reality TV show competition out of anything even putting together LEGOS, which takes a lot of precision and skill, by the way. Hosted by Will Arnett, the series finds teams of LEGO enthusiasts competition for the top prize as they build and showcase their intricate creations and meet challenges of building sets like “a dream theme park.”

Next in Fashion (Netflix)

 (Queer Eye’s Ran France leads the fashion competition series at Netflix alongside Alexa Chung. 18 contestants are split into 9 teams and compete against each other during weekly specials. It’s no Project Runway, but Next in Fashion is the next big thing.

The Goop Lab

Again, The Goop Lab, about Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle and wellness brand is more docu-series than reality series, but it’s gotten a lot of attention for the practices it brings up including psychedelics, energy work, and other topics it explores that are “out there.” Also, people were intrigued by the woman who created a vagina candle, obviously.

The Masked Singer

It’s a singing competition unlike you’ve ever seen before. Nick Cannon hosts, Ken Jeong, Jenny McCarthy, Nicole Scherzinger and Robin Thicke serve as judges in a show that finds celebrities from all walks of life dressing up in elaborate costumes to conceal their identity and singing. Everyone must guess based on the vocals and a few clues.

What reality TV shows and docu-series would you add to the list?

The Bold Type Lost Review

Mandatory meeting in the fashion closet. 

The Bold Type previously announced that its fifth season will be its last, and now, we have a premiere date!

Freeform announced the series will return on Wednesday, May 26! 

Per the synopsis, Kat, Jane, and Sutton are “on the brink of defining who they really are and how best to leave their mark on the world.”

Season 4 ended prematurely on July 16, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

As a refresher, the season ended with Sutton and Richard splitting, Kat hooking up with Eva despite the two sharing significantly different political views and then calling things off, and Jane challenging Jacqueline on a controversial story that involved her husband while also possibly crushing on one of her writers. 

The upcoming final season will be miniature in size as it will only feature six episodes.

Younger Season 7 Trailer: Does Liza Have a New Man in Her Life?



Younger Season 7 Trailer: Does Liza Have a New Man in Her Life?

Younger is ready to turn the final page!

Ahead of the seventh and final season, Paramount+ released a lengthy two-minute trailer that gives fans a glimpse of how it all ends. 

The clip opens with a flashback to Charles (Peter Hermann) asking Liza (Sutton Foster) to marry him during the season 6 finale

But, of course, it’s unclear if Liza accepted the proposal as the next scene finds her ex, Josh (Nico Tortorella), and her friend, Lauren (Molly Kate Bernard), wondering if she said yes. 

News of the possible engagement spreads fast as Liza’s bestie, Kelsey (Hilary Duff), informs her that she “just heard the news,” while her other bestie, Maggie (Debi Mazar), laments that she’s “impressed” with Charles.

However, Liza doesn’t seem to think the proposal was all that romantic, which leads me to believe that maybe the couple isn’t headed down the aisle anytime soon. 

Especially because the rest of the trailer seems to show trouble in paradise!

And this time, it may not be Josh’s fault… though, one scene does show him asking Liza: “if I would have said something sooner, would it have made a difference?”

Liza’s always struggled to choose between Charles and Josh, however, there may be a new man taking up residence in Liza’s life: surf legend Kai Manning, who is shopping a book at Empirical/Millennial. 

And while there’s a scene of Liza and Charles kissing underneath the fireworks, there’s also some tension as he informs her that he “had to bend a lot” to be with her. 

Tension also builds as it looks like Quinn is moving in on Liza’s man and Charles may be entertaining the idea!

New relationships seem to be on the horizon as Josh is spotted with a new woman by his side as his baby momma, Claire, returns. 

Maggie is also smitten with a woman named Camila.

And elsewhere, Kelsey contemplates her future asking Lauren if she should “go back to Millennial,” before informing Quinn of her decision, which the billionaire calls “running home to daddy.”

But at the end of the day, the show hones in on the fact that it’s about female friendship and empowerment.
“We’re women, we’re fighters, this is our moment, Liza,” Kelsey informs her. 
And if the original premise got muddled somewhere in all the love triangles, the trailer reminds you that the series was born to defy ageism in the workplace and in life in general.
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that age is irrelevant,” Liza tells Kelsey.
That’s been the lesson since day one! 
From the looks of it, the 12-episode final season is going to be one wild ride as it wraps up all the storylines once and for all. 
Younger will air all episodes on Paramount+ before dropping them on TV Land at a later date. 
The final season will premiere the first four episodes on April 15.

‘Younger’ Announces Final Season Premiere Date, Loses Two Series Regulars



Younger Stiff Competition Review

It’s the beginning of the end for Liza, Kelsey, and Empirical! 

Paramount Plus announced that the seventh and final season of Younger will premiere on Thursday, April 15!

The first four episodes will be available for streaming on that day. 

The final eight episodes will be released on a weekly basis every Thursday. 

Those who don’t have access to Paramount Plus will be able to see the full season later in the year on TV Land. 

It was also announced that Miriam Shor (the impeccable Diana Trout) and Charles Michael Davis (Zane Anders) will no longer be series regulars. 

Per TV Line, the duo will be back in a recurring capacity.

“Due to scheduling and Covid related matters, Miriam Shor and Charles Michael Davis were unable to be season seven cast regulars,” series creator Darren Star said in a statement to the news outlet. 

“However, they will always be a much loved and integral part of the Younger family and have added so much heart and soul to the series.”

Production for the final season was delayed significantly due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, we know these two will go the extra mile with whatever screentime they do have! 
Per the release, the final season of Younger finds “Liza’s (Sutton Foster) personal life is on shaky ground as she tries to stay true to herself. After a setback at work, Kelsey (Hilary Duff) doubts her career decisions and discovers a new creative outlet. Meanwhile, Maggie (Debi Mazar) gets canceled.”
