Plot twists are nothing more than those unexpected twists in the storyline of a movie or series, which completely change everything (or almost everything) you have understood about this story so far.

Therefore, CinePOP helps you with a list of ten series that bring some great twists and turns for you to dive into during quarantine. But keep calm! We will not reveal any spoilers!


This is one of those series that you can complete the marathon in one day! It’s a comedy starring Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen, created by Alan Yang (“Master of None”) and Matt Hubbard (“30 Rock”). The plot follows a couple, June and Oscar, who lead comfortable and predictable lives in the suburbs of the United States. But something happens and forces them to completely change everything they understand about each other, about life and about love.

The plot twist? Of course, we’re not going to tell you what it is so as not to spoil the surprise, but the grace of the series is precisely in the disclosures it makes throughout the chapters until audiences get the hang of it. finally what is really happening.

‘Mr. Robot ‘

Social critic, political commentary on consumerism, childhood trauma and unreliable narrator. With this formula, “Mr. Robot ‘accompanies hacker Elliot (Rami Malek), essentially trying to make a better world by destroying a large corporation. Cool eh?

‘Twin Peaks’

Ah, the challenge of understanding David Lynch’s complicated mind, which was probably meant not to be understood at all. Mother of the great mysteries of television, “Twin Peaks” investigates the intriguing murder of young Laura Palmer and uses this hook to debate philosophical and subjective themes. The result is somewhat metaphysical, but of course it also conceals these surprises that leave the audience without knowing or how to react. Ah, the desire to see again …


Mysteries, romances and unexplained cases. In five seasons, “Fringe” has done almost everything in telling the story of Olivia (Anna Torv), Peter (Joshua Jackson) and Walter (John Noble), investigating strange cases in a special division of the FBI. What starts off as another blatant copy of The X-Files soon takes shape when the series, at the end of its first season, reveals the plot twist that leaves you dying to watch the next episode soon.

Let’s remember?

We already love a horror story, and when it has a turnaround, it’s even better. The story is based on Shirley Jackson’s book and follows a family who lived in a haunted mansion, and what they have done to all of them over the years. In this plot, the ghosts represent trauma in the best possible way.

The plot twist is precisely in the consequences for the protagonists, but one only needs to look to find out which one. And you are always ready for the second season, which opens this year!
