Top 20 New Shows of 2020: #20

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. It’s always nice to check in midway through the television season to reflect back on all the calendar year introduced us to. As 2020 closes out and 2021 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#20: Stateless
This six-episode Australian limited series explores the complexities of immigration through the experiences of four very different people, and there is an incredible universality to the story it presents. Yvonne Strahovski, Jai Courtney, and Asher Keddie lead a strong cast that dramatically navigates the often contradictory notions of bureaucracy and justice. It’s not an easy watch, but its stark, powerful style elevates its important, very presently-relevant plot. Watch now on Netflix.
