21 of the Best Shows on Apple TV+ to Watch Right Now

From a period drama that rivals ‘Bridgerton' to crowd-favourite ‘The Morning Show’, here are the most binge-worthy shows on the app.

While there is no shortage of television shows and streaming platforms to watch them on, being struck with bout of decision paralysis is a common occurrence when the time comes to pick something to watch.

For those with a subscription to Apple TV+, you're probably already well aware the platform has bingeworthy TV shows aplenty.

But for those with a login to the app who need a little bit of guidance on what to watch, we've rounded up 21 of the best shows on Apple TV+ you can press play on right now.

1. Shrinking

Watch on Apple TV+

If you’ve ever wondered what your therapist is really thinking about you, you’ll love this Emmy-nominated series starring Jason Segel and Harrison Ford. Shrinking follows a grieving therapist who is fed up with his patients’ inaction and begins to share his advice about what they should do (and even gets involved in their lives himself). Breaching a code of ethics? Sure, but it makes for great television.

2. The Buccaneers

Watch on Apple TV+

Here to fill the perfect period drama void left by Bridgerton, The Buccaneers is Apple TV’s answer to Regency romance. Less British but just as bingeworthy, The Buccaneers is an adaptation of Edith Wharton's 1938 novel of the same name. Set in the 1870s, the series follows five young and vivacious American women as they set out to find their suitors in London. A love triangle of epic proportions shapes the series, which ends with a tea-spilling secret that will leave you as wide-eyed as the English elite when they hear how these American ladies speak.

3. The Curse

Watch on Apple TV+

The Curse is a kooky dark horror-comedy by Nathan Fielder (The Rehearsal) and Benny Safdie (Uncut Gems), who both created and co-star in the series alongside Emma Stone. The general gist: Fielder and Stone play husband and wife turned house-flipping HGTV show hosts who use their industry skills and trendy taste to gentrify a small town in New Mexico, causing a young local girl to put a curse on them. From there, things get weird. And then weirder.

4. Ted Lasso

Watch on Apple TV+

For many people, Ted Lasso is the ultimate in rewarding comfort viewing as it follows the kind-hearted eponymous American football manager as he attempts to run a down-on-its-luck Richmond club. But there’s much more to this series than fish-out-of-water comedy – though there’s plenty of that, too. The reason people love Ted Lasso so much is that it proudly and earnestly wears its heart on its sleeve, preaching a message of acceptance, openness and resilience.

5. The Morning Show

Watch on Apple TV+

One of Apple TV's most popular shows is The Morning Show. With a star-studded cast of household names including the likes of Jennifer Anniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carrell, this candid drama pulls back the curtain on the people who help wake the country up each morning through a fictional plot. Watch as news anchor Alex fights for her spot at the top after her co-host is embroiled in sexual misconduct allegations.

6. Liaison

Watch on Apple TV+

This is Apple TV’s first French-language, starring Vincent Cassel, Eva Green and Thierry Fremont. The show is a six-episode espionage thriller about how past lives – and loves – can catch up to our present. The show combines French and English scenes, and is a perfect combination of Slow Horses and The Night Manager.

7. Lessons In Chemistry

Watch on Apple TV+

Based on Bonnie Garmus’ best-selling novel of the same name, Brie Larson brings protagonist Elizabeth Zott to life on screen as a chemist turned cook who seeks to defy the patriarchy. Set in the ‘50s, the series shines a light on the oppressive gender roles of the time, when women were expected to stay home instead of seeking a fulfilling career. Fuelled by the early sparks of the feminist movement, Elizabeth gives a glorious middle finger to the establishment that tried forcing her into the laundry and away from the lab.

8. Physical

Watch on Apple TV+

This pitch perfect series has a devoted fan base for a reason: its biting tone and darkly sardonic wit, its perfect recreation of ‘80s fitness culture and, of course, its lead performance by the fantastic Rose Byrne. Through this three-season drama series the business Byrne’s character Sheila has so painstakingly built, is threatened by a new fitness entrepreneur. What will happen? You’ll have to tune in to find out.

9. The Crowded Room

Watch on Apple TV+

This psychological thriller has a brilliant cast that includes Tom Holland, Amanda Seyfried, Sasha Lane, Jason Isaacs, Emmy Rossum, and Christopher Abbott. The series follows Danny (Holland), who is in prison for his involvement in a shooting in New York in the ‘70s, as he speaks to a police psychologist (Seyfried) attempting to unravel the truth about the case. Flashbacks and unreliable narrators make this series an addictive and mysterious watch.

10. Bad Sisters

Watch on Apple TV+

Brought to life by Irish actress and writer Sharon Horgan, Bad Sisters is centred around five sisters – Eva, Grace, Ursula, Bibi and Becka – living in Dublin. The series flips between two timelines: one where Grace’s sisters plot to murder her abusive and controlling husband Paul, and another after his actual death, which puts them at the centre of a life insurance investigation. Dark? Yes. But it’s brilliantly witty too.

11. The Last Thing He Told Me

Watch on Apple TV+

Reese Witherspoon’s Hello Sunshine has a knack for taking bestselling books and turning them into must-watch television shows. This thriller stars Jennifer Garner as an artist in San Francisco whose life is upended when her husband goes missing, leaving her with just one cryptic message: protect her. The “her” in question is her stepdaughter, the 16-year-old Bailey, played by Angourie Rice, and as the miniseries unfolds, it becomes clear that there’s more to her husband’s disappearance than meets the eye.

12. The Super Models

Watch on Apple TV+

Examining the careers of legends Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington. Delving, The Super Models shows how these breathtaking icons of the ‘80s learned to speak up for themselves and each other during an era in which women were still tethered to silence.

13. The New Look

Watch on Apple TV+

Fashion and history meet in this thrilling 10-part series about iconic French fashion designer Christion Dior, played by homegrown hero Ben Mendelsohn. Exploring the ugly side of beauty during WWII, the series reveals how Dior and his contemporaries – including Coco Chanel, Pierre Balmain, and Cristóbal Balenciaga – navigated the horrific period while ushering in a new era of fashion. A performance by Mendelsohn is not to be missed, who stars alongside the likes of Juliette Binoche, David Kammenos, and Maisie Williams.

14. Slow Horses

Watch on Apple TV+

While it’s hard to push past the fantasy of giving Gary Oldman a Queer Eye-level makeover, his portrayal of Jackson Lamb – a spy boss in charge of a group of demoted MI5 misfits – is nothing short of spectacular. Dark, witty, and full of intrigue, Slow Horses is everything you could want in a spy thriller.

15. Drops of God

Watch on Apple TV+

When a world-famous wine figure passes away, his estranged daughter unexpectedly becomes the heir to his massive wine collection – but there’s a catch: in order to secure her 148-million-dollar inheritance, she must travel to Tokyo to beat her father’s Japanese protégé in a competition that will test both of their senses. If you’re an oenophile (or simply love a dramatic thriller), pour a glass of your favourite red and curl up to enjoy this 8-episode series that is based on the hit Japanese manga.

16. The Big Door Prize

Watch on Apple TV+

What would you do if you found out your destiny could be predicted? Better yet, you could receive said destiny through a mysterious machine that appeared at your local grocery store?

The show’s writer and director previously worked on Schitt’s Creek, so expect a similar spirit of quirkiness to keep you hooked til the very last episode.

17. City On Fire

Watch on Apple TV+
