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

Reality Shows You Need to Watch in 2020

Published

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?

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for ‘Yellowstone’ Prequel ‘1932’

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren Tapped for 'Yellowstone' Prequel '1932'

 

Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren are jumping on the Yellowstone bandwagon.

The actors will star in the drama’s upcoming 1932 prequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The Paramount+ series follows the 1883 prequel spinoff and will introduce a new generation of Duttons. 

The series has amassed a somewhat cult following, so it makes sense that the forces behind yet another origin story have decided to go big with the names attached to the project. 

It’s unclear what role Ford and Mirren have been cast in, but we’re sure it’ll delight considering their impressive acting resumes. 

Per the official synopsis provided by the streaming network, the drama will “explore the early 20th century when pandemics, historic drought, the end of Prohibition and the Great Depression all plague the mountain west, and the Duttons who call it home.”

Pandemics, huh. We know a thing or two about that. 

News of the new prequel first broke in February. 

“Taylor Sheridan has put roots down for the Dutton Family tree that stand strong and tall, with many branches that continue to engage record-breaking audiences,” 1883 executive producer David C. Glasser said via a statement, adding, “It is awe-inspiring to work with Taylor, ViacomCBS and the entire team on this universe.”

It’s unclear if the plan is to have 1932 span multiple seasons or if it will be a one-season limited series like the previous prequel.

All we know is that if you’re not watching Yellowstone and the blossoming franchise, you’re doing it wrong.

‘Legacies’ Canceled at The CW – Season 4 Will be the Last

Published

QUIZ: Which 'Legacies' Character Are You?

It’s the end of a franchise on The CW. 

The network officially canceled Legacies, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. 

The news, while heartbreaking, might not be unexpected for those who have been following along and awaiting a verdict. 

Things didn’t bode well for the series after the network banished the remaining three episodes from their scheduled May airdates to the month of June. 

‘Dynasty,’ ‘Roswell, New Mexico,’ ‘Charmed’ Among Shows Canceled by The CW

And when The CW canceled Dynasty, Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed, In the Dark, and 4400 earlier today, things looked even bleaker for the Danielle Russell-led series. 

Admittedly, Legacies never reached the heights that its predecessors did, and viewership has only been dwindling. 

The series will come to an end with its fourth season. 

The CW really broke took a jab at so many fandoms today!

Deadline reports that the network is currently in talks to be sold to station group Nexstar, which could explain the decision to slice its programing roster in half. 

It previously canceled Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Back in March, the network gave green lights for several of its dramas: All American renewed for season 5, The Flash renewed for season 9, Kung Fu renewed for season 3, Superman & Loisrenewed for season 3, Nancy Drew renewed for season 4, Riverdale renewed for season 7, Walker renewed for season 3.
