Movie & TV Series Watchlist Notion Template

Welcome to our Movie & TV Series Watchlist Notion Template!

We first designed this template to keep track of all our watchlists from multiple platforms, such as movie theater exclusives, Netflix, Apple TV, Hulu, and more. As there are so many different platforms these days, it is difficult to track what we have seen, what we want to watch next, and which are the favorites we love so much and would like to watch again. Some platforms might remove our favorite movies/TV series, and losing track of the good ones we like is easy. Therefore, we came up with this Movie and TV series watchlist Notion template, and we‘d love to share this with you!

Why should you track your Movie & TV watchlist on NOTION?

Every platform, such as Netflix, Apple TV, and Hulu, has a function to save movies to watch later, and it is convenient to save them for Watch Later or in a Library. However, these platforms have their systems, and it isn’t easy to put your reviews, reflections, or thoughts for each movie. Not to mention, it would be impossible to have all of the movies in the same place and categorize them as you wish.

Notion is strong in this area since this tool has great visualization and an efficient database function to store movies and TV show data. All movies and TV shows can be recorded in one place and categorized based on more than one criterion.


This movie library template has everything you need for avid movie and TV show fans! It can be fun to reflect on all of the movies and shows you’ve watched this year while thinking about which ones to watch next. There is also a way to rate your movies/shows from 1 – 5 stars and write down your reviews and reflections.

Our template at a glance

Here is our template at a glance! The template’s main page is designed in a minimal and pleasing way that still has all of the necessary information.

  • Favorite movie and quote: On the left side, you can customize this template with your favorite movie and quote to personalize this watchlist template.
  • My Watchlist: The watchlist dashboard provides you with three views: Watching now, Want to watch, and Watched this year

How to change your favorite movie and quote

The first step is to replace the template movie photo. Right-click the picture → click “Replace”. Upload your favorite movie. It may take more experimenting to find the right photo size, so drag the size to make sure it fits your personal needs. Before uploading, check your Notion plan or file upload size since the Free Notion Plan has a maximum file upload of 5MB. Finally, don’t forget to change the quote to your quote!

How to add a new Movie or TV Show?
