Nevertheless, the show has hung on to a loyal group of fans who still tune in for the outrageous plot twists, the random romantic relationships and the meme-worthy dialogue. The seventh and final season is officially underway on Netflix, transporting the gang back in time to the 1950s. Probably best not to overthink it. - Lauren Morris
Romcom veteran Katherine Heigl and Scrubs alum Sarah Chalke play childhood best friends in this Netflix adaptation of Kristin Hannah's book of the same name, Firefly Lane. The show follows their relationship over a course of 30 years, culminating in the present day when Tully (Heigl) is a famous talkshow host and Kate (Chalke) is an ex-journalist who left the industry to raise a family. The second and final season kicks off on Netflix in December, dropping its first nine episodes, with seven more to follow next year.
However, when this show hits, it really hits and can provide some of the best of DC, particularly after it got away from its early insistence on angsty darkness. Brenton Thwaites is brilliant as Robin/Nightwing, as are the supporting cast. The series' problem is that it sometimes bites off more than it can chew, but with all that ambition its unsurprising that that occasionally it gets the wider DC universe very right. - James Hibbs
Starring Line of Duty's Anna Maxwell Martin, Motherland follows middle-class mum Julia as she tries to juggle her work life alongside school drop offs, PTA duties and kids' birthday parties with no help from her often-absent husband. Together with her best friends Liz (Diane Morgan) and Kevin (Paul Ready), Julia finds herself going up against Amanda (Lucy Punch), passive aggressive head of the Alpha Mums, in this sharp, hilarious sitcom. - Lauren Morris
All caught up with the latest episode of Better Call Saul and want to spend as much time in that world before it re-ends Then why not revisit where it all began and binge your way through all five seasons of Breaking Bad on Netflix. Widely regarded as one of the best series of the 21st century, if not all time, Breaking Bad starts off with a killer premise and then just ramps up and up and up until it reaches one of the most satisfying finales for a long-running series ever.
True Story is not up there with the best crime thrillers Netflix has produced, with a plot containing twists that can easily be considered silly and predictable. But nevertheless, the show succeeds in sinking its hooks into you, as it keeps you guessing over whether Kid can salvage his career from this nightmare or if his misdeeds will be exposed for the world to see. Snipes and Hart do a good job selling the sometimes questionable material, while the 30-minute episodes keep the show feeling relatively fast-paced. You could easily binge in a weekend! - David Craig
Video game adaptations don't have the best track record, so you'd be forgiven for being sceptical about whether Arcane is worth your valuable time. However, rest assured that it most definitely is. The animated series is inspired by the online phenomenon League of Legends, but you don't require any knowledge of the source material to be enraptured by its larger-than-life characters or get lost in its rich fantasy world.
The appeal of Scandi-noir has long been documented and discussed, and although The Chestnut Man doesn't necessarily reinvent the genre it does sit amongst the best of Scandinavia's crime drama exports. Featuring a bleak autumnal atmosphere, a suspenseful slow-burn mystery and Scandi-noir's trademark focus on domestic issues, all combined with Netflix's excellent production values... need we say any more Plus, you'll never look at chestnuts the same way again... - Daniel Furn
Maid's arrival may have been somewhat overshadowed by the unexpected success of Squid Game, but this grounded and sensitive comedy-drama is the perfect detox after the South Korean killer game series. Based on the New York Times bestseller Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother's Will to Survive, Maid stars Margaret Qualley (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) as Alex, a young single mother who has recently fled an abusive relationship. She then turns to cleaning houses, contending with occasionally repellent work, low pay and the ongoing impacts of domestic abuse as she attempts to give her young daughter a better life.
Maid's premise may seem less ambitious or inventive than other shows on the streamer, but it's the unflinching realism that gives the show its edge - not only for its accurate depiction of those living on the poverty line, but also for showing how domestic abuse is not always physical. The show is anchored by a standout performance by Qualley as the resilient Alex who is determined to rewrite her life and redefine her worth, but she is helped by a strong supporting cast - with some of the best scenes featuring the interactions between Alex and her mentally ill mother, played by screen legend Andie MacDowell. - Daniel Furn
The heist genre gets subverted in this crime caper, which uses a female narrator, a Spanish cultural lens and a twisty-turny narrative to update the long-running formula with a series where the complex characters and their relationships matter just as much as the actual heist. A few unnecessary love triangles mean the show veers dangerously close to soap opera territory in later seasons - but at its best Money Heist is a smart, inventive and utterly gripping series that truly deserves its status as one of the most-watched non-English language shows in the world. - Daniel Furn
Tackling issues including the perils of fame, addiction and depression but also containing an incredible range of visual gags and wordplay BoJack Horseman is easily one of the best Netflix originals currently available, and arguably one of the finest TV shows of all time. - Patrick Cremona
But the best part is that this show has an authentic, young voice, never speaking down to its teen audience and finding ways to explore the issues that matter to them. - Emma Bullimore
The Bold Type, which is loosely inspired by the life and work of the show's Executive Producer Joanna Coles (former chief content officer for Hearst Magazines), is about three millennial women working at global publication Scarlet. But this is not just a show about the intense and all consuming labyrinth of the magazine industry. While it does explore the women's careers, workplace drama and the ethical and moral dilemmas that come with that, the real crux of the show is the love story between three best friends whose bond began in Scarlet's fashion closet. Jane Sloan, Kat Edison and Sutton Brady navigate hectic careers, romantic relationships, sexuality, race, health, euphoric happiness and utter tragedy: candidly, imperfectly, and most importantly, arm in arm. Catch all four seasons before The Bold Type returns to Netflix with season five later this year. - Anna Barry 59ce067264
