IMDb, the world’s most popular and authoritative source for movie, TV, and celebrity content, unveiled the Top 10 New Television Shows of 2021 (so far), based on IMDb user ratings.
In addition to the popular “best of the year” Top 10 lists IMDb reveals each December, its mid-year lists offer a sneak peek at breakout titles that have most resonated with IMDb users.
Loki, from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, tops this list, with additional series including Invincible (#2), It’s a Sin (#3), and Mare of Easttown (#4).
IMDb ratings are determined by users who rate movies and TV shows on a 10-point scale. To rate any more than 8 million titles on IMDb, users can click the “Rate This” star on the movie or TV show’s IMDb title page. IMDb users submit over a million and a half new ratings each week. As a result, over one billion IMDb user ratings are available to help entertainment fans discover and decide what to watch.
“This list celebrates the series which have been rated highest by IMDb’s broad audience of hundreds of millions of fans in the first half of 2021,”said Nikki Santoro, Head of IMDb Consumer.
“It’s no surprise that Loki, from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is top of the list – it was ranked the Most Anticipated TV Series by IMDb customers in April ahead of its June premiere, and Tom Hiddleston’s fun and twisted performance has delivered!”
