FALL 2021 TV SURVEY: 30 MOST ANTICIPATED NEW SHOWS

For Rotten Tomatoes’ annual Fall TV Survey, we asked our users what they’re most looking forward to in the coming TV season and to reflect on the best shows from seasons past. Over 1,000 of them got back to us with their picks for fall.

Next in our Fall TV Survey, we asked which new shows fans are excited about. Again, readers were allowed more than one vote; though some of the titles may have been less familiar to them and their choices were based on short descriptions of each.

Marvel’s Hawkeye on Disney+ came out on top in our list of new fall shows fans are most looking forward to, followed by Dexter: New Blood, Only Murders in the Building, animated Star Wars: Visions, and Peter Jackson’s The Beatles: Get Back at No. 5 on our list.

You — like many of our respondents who wrote-in additional titles — might be asking yourself where Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett is on our list; it’s a title that we couldn’t nail down as specifically a fall title. Disney+ may gift us with it closer to Christmas.

Read on to find out all of Rotten Tomatoes users’ most anticipated new series.
