It's safe to say that any of us were glued to our TVs more than ever before in 2020. While there was no doubt a lot of top-tier shows—Insecure, The Queen's Gambit, and The Crown come to mind—this year promises to be even better with a great mix of new and returning shows.
When it comes to newcomers, one standout is The Pursuit of Love, which stars Lily James and will feature beautiful 1920s and 30s European costumes. Another new show is HBO's The Gilded Age starring Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon. It's a period drama set in 1880s New York City (so no Miranda Hobbs in sight). It's by the creator of Downton Abbey, so our expectations are certainly high for the acting and costumes. Scroll down for a recap of the 9 most stylish shows of 2021.
Black-ish Season 7
Mark your calendars: Black-ish will return for its 7th season on Tuesday, January 26 in the US. Of course, Tracee Ellis Ross's stylish character will be coming back, along with Anthony Anderson and the rest of the cast.
The Pursuit of Love
Lily James stars in this sure-to-be-stylish show set in Europe in the 1920s. We can expect beautiful period costumes and fanciful set designs true to the era.
Friends Reunion Special
The highly-anticipated special was supposed to air in 2020, but it's been moved to March 2021. Sadly, it's just a one-off moment and not a reboot, but we can't wait to see the whole gang back together again.
As we reported, the Gossip Girl reboot started filming in New York City this autumn. It will feature an all-new generation of high school students in the modern, social media-obsessed era. We don't have an exact release date since cameras are still rolling, but we're crossing our fingers for a late 2021 premiere.
Pose Season 3
Billy Porter's incredibly stylish multi-award-winning series will return for its third season next year, but the exact date is still TBC. We can't wait to see what the wardrobe department comes up with next.
The Gilded Age
Cynthia Nixon and Christine Baranski will be starring in HBO's The Gilded Age, a historical drama set in 1880s New York City. Considering it's from the same creator as Downton Abbey, we can expect sumptuous period costumes.
Succession Season 3
I can't wait for more of Shiv Roy's posh pantsuits and badass boardroom dresses. Heck, I'm even looking forward to Logan Roy's grandpa sweaters. The season three release date is still TBD.
Never Have I Ever Season 2
Mindy Kaling's adorable show is returning for a second season and I personally cannot wait. The show has been especially meaningful for the South Asian community and is a win for representation in television.
Riverdale Season 5
Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, and the rest of the cast will return to Riverdale on Wednesday, January 20. I know a lot of Who What Wear editors will be unavailable that evening.
