The viral filter from Instagram, ‘2020 Episode Filter’ has made its way to TikTok also and here is how to get “The 2020 Episode Filter” on TikTok.
The year 2020 has made us feel like it is the worst year of the decade due to the Covid-19 pandemic but then the social media platforms are there for the rescue. As we are all maintaining social distance in the real world, we are getting closer to people through the virtual world and TikTok is among such fun apps that keep us connected.
TikTok is much more fun because of its viral challenges and popular filters. With numerous AR filters being used by lots of users, there is this new filter that is going viral on TikTok these days which is called 2020 Episode filter.
Here is everything you need to know about this filter and how to get it.
What is the 2020 Episode Filter?
If you have been active on TikTok and Instagram lately, then you must have seen filters like “2020 prediction filter”, “2020 At a Glance”, or “In 2020 I will be”. Well, this 2020 Episode filter is also quite similar and it predicts random TV shows or movies that you will be watching later.
How it works is that the filter shows a random episode of TV series or movies and is said to be a prediction of you watching that part of the show. Sometimes it can be coincidentally correct, but most of the time it is just a random thing that can be fun to try.

It somehow turned into a challenge on TikTok where the users try to prove the prediction right by showing that particular TV program at exactly the same episode revealed in the filter results. This challenge is what caused this 2020 episode filter to get viral.
Is it related to the “2020 At a Glance” filter?
Yes, it is very much like “2020 At a Glance” filter, “In 2020 I will be” filter, and the “2020 predictions filter”. All of them have the same concept.
However, the filter which arrived first was simply the 2020 predictions filter from January. All these filters just randomly show some results like a spinning wheel. The results are basically pre-set and you will get one result from a fixed set of possible results.

This filter is also similar to a new challenge called ‘Netflix Challenge’. It involves using a filter that predicts the shows you will be watching on Netflix.
