FALL 2020 TV SURVEY: 10 MOST ANTICIPATED TV & STREAMING MOVIES

For Rotten Tomatoes’ annual Fall TV Survey, we asked 1,000 of our users what they’re most looking forward to in the coming season and to reflect on the best programming from seasons past.

Looking for a quick hit, not a long binge this fall? There are plenty of feature-length films heading our way, as well. The most highly anticipated, according to Rotten Tomatoes users, is Enola Holmes, the Netflix film starring Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown as Sherlock’s spunky younger sister. (Sherlock Holmes, we should mention, is played by another Netflix star, The Witcher’s Henry Cavill.)

The top 10 most anticipated TV and streaming movies is a good mix of scripted and documentary — both Belushi, about the late comedian Jim Belushi, and Crazy, Not Insane, about what makes a serial killer , made the list. In addition to the grown-up fare, there are a few films tailor-made for a younger-skewing audience (Disney+ original Secret Society of Second-Born Royals among them).

Two high-profile remakes are also on the list — Black Beauty, with Kate Winslet lending her voice to this contemporary adaptation of the novel, and Netflix’s highly anticipated, star-studded remake of Daphne du Maurier’s thriller Rebecca, featuring Armie Hammer and Lily James in the first feature film take on the book since Alfred Hitchcock’s 1940 version.

Disagree with the survey results? Tell us in the comments what you think should have made the list or what should have been ranked higher.
