Being stuck at home for the better part of the year, many of us had nothing better to do but watch TV series. Luckily, the TV was particularly great this year and didn't disappoint. 

Now, if you have made a nightly habit of binge-watching a few episodes before catching sleep after the long day, it's great to have a 'To be Watched' list ready. But considering the vast availability of TV series in the post-pandemic era, choosing a good show can be a bit of a headache. 

Good for you; here is a list of the best TV series that 2021 has offered so that you are never short on your list of queued TV series:

Ted Lasso

The American comedy-drama with Jason Sudeikis playing Ted Lasso is the talk of Emmys this year. Ridiculously full of optimism, the series shows an amateur coach herding the professional soccer team in England, Wichita State Shockers, for a win at the Division II National Collegiate Athletic Association. Never having coached before, Ted holds himself at a high pedestal. But despite his professional shortcomings, Ted still proves to be a not-so-bad coach. The series is all about how attitude matters, and the second season garnered many great reviews. 

The White Lotus

The White Lotus by Mike White is a satirical comedy-drama of the year; watching which will prove to be a worthy expenditure of your time. The American comedy aired on HBO from July 11, 2021, and encompasses the ridiculous mishappenings at a tropical resort and all the wrong that manages to happen in just a week. It stars famous faces like Connie Briton, Steve Zahn, Natasha Rothwell, and Jennifer Coolidge. The show has everything from awkward laughs to a great plotline and murder. The series is a must-watch for its ending alone.  

The Handmaid's Tale

Based on The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood, The series of the same name enjoyed quite a lot of popularity in 2018. From Handmaid-inspired dresses to Kylie Jenner's Handmaid-themed party, the series was the talk of the town everywhere. However, despite the initial success of the series, the successive seasons failed to impress, mainly because of all the trauma and injustice shown in seasons two and three. However, season four, based on the Gilead sequel, The Testaments, has once again started becoming the cult favorite. Now, all that matters is what is going to be the future of Gilead? 

The Underground Railroad

The series takes its name after the supposed Underground Railroad, a connection of people who helped African-Americans escape slavery through hidden trails and safe houses.

While freedom is only a daring decision away for Cora, an unrelenting slave hunter is on her trail, and she might be discovered anytime.
