Last year, the number of scripted TV series available in the U.S. on all viewing platforms hit a record 559, representing a 13% jump from 2020, according to research conducted by the cable network FX. That number only includes English-language series, and also doesn’t account for the hundreds of movies that were released in theaters and on streaming services last year.
