It’s hard to know what every new title is about, but the following are a few TV and streaming shows and movies that Rotten Tomatoes users recommend you watch out for.

Top 20 out of 47 titles: 

Adjusted Score: 80986%
Critics Consensus: Though not as thematically rich as some of its geopolitical predecessors, Jack Ryan is a satisfying addition to the genre buoyed by exceptional action sequences and a likable cast.
Adjusted Score: 92438%
Critics Consensus: Cloak & Dagger blends soapy drama with superhero grit to create an exciting, surprisingly thoughtful addition to the genre -- even if it falls prey to a certain amount of narrative bloat.

Krypton: Season 1 (2018)

Adjusted Score: 62449%
Critics Consensus: Krypton's eccentricity declines into silliness with a dull narrative that fails to fulfill a promising premise.
Adjusted Score: 92247%
Critics Consensus: A meticulously crafted mystery brimming with allusions, Castle Rock is bound to please even the pickiest of Stephen King fans -- though mileage may vary for casual viewers.
Adjusted Score: 100583%
Critics Consensus: Shaking up traditional religious and musical iconography, Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert is a sight to be heard, superbly infiltrating the classic source material with originality, rock legend star power, and soulful depth.

Directed By: David Leveaux

A.P. Bio: Season 1 (2018)

Adjusted Score: 67630%
Critics Consensus: A.P. Bio has some genuine laughs, but audiences have already seen plenty of authority figures behaving badly -- and have a right to expect more from this promising premise and talented cast.
Adjusted Score: 83529%
Critics Consensus: Heidi Thomas' Little Women miniseries offers a charming, intimate, and decidedly loyal adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's original story.
Adjusted Score: 38722%
Critics Consensus: Splitting Up Together tries to make light of divorce, but its commitment to genre tropes keeps it from being very fun or funny, despite the always charming Jenna Fischer's best efforts.
Adjusted Score: 65397%
Critics Consensus: Fans will bask in the familiar glow from Station 19, though anyone who doesn't already indulge in the soapy delights of Shondaland may not feel the spark.
Adjusted Score: 98753%
Critics Consensus: A thriller wrapped in a prestige drama package, The Terror makes for gripping, atmospheric supernatural horror.
Adjusted Score: 89057%
Critics Consensus: Hayley Atwell shines in Howards End, a beautiful, if borderline superficial, adaptation of a much-revered book.

Rise: Season 1 (2018)

Adjusted Score: 61369%
Critics Consensus: Rise's admirable aim to inspire audiences with a grounded depiction of high school theater is undercut by stock characters and an off-putting presumption that it is more moving than it ever manages to be.
Adjusted Score: 60356%
Critics Consensus: Yellowstone proves too melodramatic to be taken seriously, diminishing the effects of the talented cast and beautiful backdrops.
Adjusted Score: 69313%
Critics Consensus: For the People's concept may be all too familiar, but the character depth and clever dialogue help set it apart.

Barry: Season 1 (2018)

Adjusted Score: 103740%
Critics Consensus: PTSD and comedy make strangely endearing bedfellows in Barry, which proves more poignant than its sketch show premise.

Deception: Season 1 (2018)

Adjusted Score: 57788%
Critics Consensus: Deception isn't particularly original or thoughtful, but there's still some lighthearted fun to be found hidden up its sleeve.

Benji (2018)

Adjusted Score: 35212%

Synopsis: A dog comes to the rescue and helps heal a broken family when a boy and his sister stumble into... [More]
Directed By: Brandon Camp
Adjusted Score: 73086%
Critics Consensus: Lost in Space's production values are ambitious enough to attract sci-fi adventure fans, while the story's large heart adds an emotional anchor to all the deep space derring-do.

American Woman (2018)

Synopsis: A new, challenging life awaits Bonnie Nolan after she discovers her husband is having an affair. Amid the rise of... [More]
Directed By: John Wells
