Apple TV+ is still a fairly new streaming service in the big scheme of things but it’s definitely making ground. Not only did Apple just win its first Best Picture Oscar for CODA but the streaming service is also home to multiple award-winning original TV shows that are well worth watching.
Here are some of the best TV shows you should check out on Apple TV+ if you haven’t already.
The Best TV shows to stream on Apple TV+
If you need a dose of dopamine you need to watch Ted Lasso.
The show may seem like it’s all about soccer, but it’s so much more than that. Jason Sudeikis stars as Ted Lasso, an eternally optimistic US coach who is brought over to the UK to train the team at AFC Richmond.
While all the odds are stacked against him, Ted wins over his new team thanks to his small acts of kindness. It’s quite simply a joy to watch and you’ll no doubt become obsessed after a couple of episodes.
Season 3 of Ted Lasso is coming out soon so brush up on the previous seasons if you haven’t already.
Morning Wars (aka The Morning Show everywhere outside of Australia) was Apple TV+’s first big hitter.
The series stars the powerhouse team of Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon as co-anchors on a popular U.S. morning show.
