From thrilling dramas to post-apocalyptic sci-fi fantasies, the Emmy award-winning streaming service has proven to compete with the best in the business. According to loopers on Openvy, these are the top 10 Apple TV+ shows you absolutely must watch:

1. Ted Lasso

A heartwarming comedy that follows the story of an American college football coach, Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis), hired to manage a struggling English soccer team, AFC Richmond. The only catch? He’s a rookie, having had no previous experience in the sport. With a flair for optimism and perseverance, he starts winning people on his team over, including Rebecca Welton (Hannah Waddingham)—the team’s scheming owner who wants to get back at her ex-husband, the previous owner, by running AFC Richmond to ground.

2. Severance

Lumon Industries, a biotech corporation, employs a unique medical procedure known as “severance” to separate the minds of its workers, creating a clear divide between their professional and personal lives. Over time, the individuals’ consciousness within the workplace, dubbed “innies,” diverges significantly from their consciousness outside of it, termed “outies.” This gradual separation results in the development of distinct personalities within the same person, each with its own set of motivations.
