All Apple TV+ Shows and Movies, Ranked by Tomatometer

Updated September 30, 2021

Apple’s streaming service launched in November 2019 with a suite of buzzy, high-profile shows, including The Morning Show with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, Jason Momoa in sci-fi series See, and Hailee Steinfeld as the titular poet in Dickinson.

Since then, the company has offered critically-acclaimed series, including the feel-good sports comedy Ted Lasso, animated musical series Central Park, and the story of intrepid kid journalist Home Before Dark. Recent films include Sofia Coppola’s latest outing, On the Rocks, starring Bill Murray and Rashida Jones, the documentary Boys State, and the Bruce Springsteen documentary Bruce Springsteen’s Letter to You.

Other titles that have hit the streaming service include a new version of Steven Spielberg’s anthology series Amazing StoriesMythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet, created by Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, and Megan GanzLittle America, from writer–executive producers Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon; and docuseries Visible: Out on Television, about milestones on television for the LGBTQ movement. The latest additions include musical comedy Schmigadoon!, Joseph Gordon Levitt’s Mr. Corman, and score changes thanks to the new season of Ted Lasso.

Plus, on the film side, Sundance sensation CODA – do not watch this film without Kleenex close by – enters the guide with a Certified Fresh Tomatometer score of 96%.

But which of those series and movies have earned their spot among the best Apple TV+ offerings so far? We’ve listed the best of the best below. Films and series must have a minimum of 10 reviews to be included, and series that do not have a Tomatometer score, like Oprah’s Book Club, do not appear on the list.
