FALL 2021 TV SURVEY: 30 MOST ANTICIPATED TV & STREAMING MOVIES

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.

For our Fall TV Survey, we also asked which TV and streaming movies fans are eager to see. The category got a prestige bump this year with Warner Bros. opting to release some of its biggest movies, like our No. 1 title Dune (HBO Max), on streaming simultaneously with the title’s theatrical debut. Also in the top 5: The Matrix Resurrections (HBO Max), Red Notice (Netflix), Cinderella (Amazon Prime Video), and Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal and Greed (Netflix).

Read on to find out all of Rotten Tomatoes users’ most anticipated movies on TV and streaming.
