61 best Netflix shows and TV series to watch now (October 2021)

Cecily Strong in I Think You Should Leave, Lee Jung-jae in Squid Game and Lewis Hamilton in Formula 1: Drive to Survive, three of the best Netflix shows

Our list is still strong with the top Netflix shows. Netflix pulled in a surprise addition that we didn’t anticipate to be on the big-red streaming device now that Peacock has been created. Popular shows like Outer Banks provide a reason to renew your subscription, even if they’re not considered “prestige TV”.

The Emmys voting public loves The Crown. The Crown won seven awards. We are currently tracking everything about The Crown season 5. Although they’re not top-rated TV, Netflix’s latest hits have many people keeping track of Sexy Beasts Season 2 and asking: “What is Squid Game?”

Netflix also announced that Cobra Kai season 4 will feature a classic villain returning, and Lupin was back for its second season (plus, Lupin’s season 3 has been confirmed!). Although we have difficulty figuring out when Stranger Things Season 4 will return, we are happy to announce that The Witcher 2 is on its way.

Netflix is now the second-ranked streaming service in our top 10 best. Netflix, despite its wealth of shows and diversity, is still worthy. Netflix is losing yet another series every time a show is canceled.

The Queen’s Gambit is one of the recent Netflix hits. This show earned a perfect 100% Rotten Tomatoes score (but it dropped down to 97% as time went by). Check out our guide on calling Netflix customer services if Netflix hasn’t earned a perfect score.

These are the top 61 Netflix TV shows and series:

Squid Game

Squid Game, a Korean thriller/drama, has taken Netflix by storm in a nine-episode run. The series has had everyone asking questions. Seong Gihun, a chauffeur and a thief, finds himself in a strange series of children’s games managed by masked guards. This series is worth a whopping W45.6 billion. Squid Game is extraordinary for how well it has been made. But, more importantly, for how its fascinating cast of characters will make you root to support people you might never have seen before. Squid Game season two is not yet official but we still want it.

Cast: Lee Jung-Jae, Park Hae-soo, Jung Ho-Yeon, O Yeong-us

Seasons1 season (9 episodes)

Genre: Thriller/drama

Rotten Tomatoes score: 94%

Money Heist (La Casa de Papel)

The greatest heists ever made are available to you if you’re looking for something intense and action-packed. This series is shot in stunning detail and follows the adventures of The Professor, who attempts to rob Spain’s Royal Mint of Spain. This Spanish-language series zigs around the place with flash-backs as well as time jumps to keep things interesting. There is even the possibility of an “unreliable narrator”, which adds to the intrigue.

Cast: Ursula Corbero, Alvaro Morte, Itziar Ituno, Pedro Alonso

30 Rock

30 Rock’s recent return to Netflix appears like a joke from Kabletown (or Comcast as the Peacock streaming company owner). We’re not questioning why it’s not exclusive to NBC’s streaming service. This is not the case when we have the opportunity to enjoy one of our favorite sitcoms. 30 Rock had a scarily good idea about what would work. Liz Lemon and Jack Donaghy’s struggles working together (and Tracy Jordan & Jenna Maroney’s inability) always proved to be hilarious.

Tim Robinson: I believe you should leave

This short-form series, Tim Robinson (Detroiters), will make you smile and laugh more than once. It’s the show you either have to see with your friends (so they can laugh at the jokes) and/or people who accept that you won’t enjoy it due to its excessive humor. Season 2 is full of amazing moments. Have they paid yet? Although we don’t know if the hot dog-shaped car crash was overturned, it doesn’t mean that it should. If you don’t know what direction to take, it is not a good idea.

Formula 1: Drive to Survive

Formula 1 racing’s wild world can sometimes take place at odd hours, making it difficult for Americans to see. That’s why Drive to Survive is here. This documentary series, which is one of Netflix’s best, puts you in close contact with some of the most famous drivers, including Lewis Hamilton. The third and most recent series looked at how Covid-19 changed F1 racing. Hamilton rose to prominence.

Ginny, Georgia

Georgia Miller, the daughter of young parents, is living a life full of drama. Georgia has ended her nomadic years only to be thrown into more chaos. Ginny, Georgia Miller’s 15-year-old daughter, isn’t able to escape her mother’s past. As the series ended with a cliffhanger it was clear that a second season would be possible. We’re already following all things Ginny/Georgia season 2.

Even a basic soapy drama can still be delectable if it is prepared right. Bridgerton was the first fruit of the Netflix deal with Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy). The series is well-written and beautifully produced. It follows Daphne who is a young London socialite. Every episode ends with an ending that will make you want to play the next episode. However, it’s not necessarily the longest season. Bridgerton season 2 has a new cast member.

The Queen’s Gambit

Chess is in vogue again, it’s true. Anya Taylor Joy (Emma), stars as Beth Harmon in The Queen’s Gambit. She is a prodigious master of the chessboard and wants to be the best. Taylor-Joy not only captures the attention on-screen, but it’s a beautiful show with beautifully shot spaces that have already generated think-pieces about their stunning design.

Emily in Paris

If Emily, the series’ heroine in Paris seems to speak, act, and dress as a millennial Carrie Bradshaw then there is a reason. Sex and the City creator Darren Star was also responsible for the creation of Emily. Emily is a Chicago marketing director who finds a great job in her ideal city. Sylvie, Sylvie’s boss, and her coworkers make life difficult. While Paris fashionistas are mocking the romcom’s fashion-focused take on Paris, Sylvie and co-workers are horrible, Emily and their show are charming and entertaining. We salute the handsome, charming eyes of Paris, who are proof that Paris truly is the city where love, if not lust, reigns. Here are all the details about Emily in Paris season 2.

Cobra Kai

Cobra Kai is a great Karate Kid spin-off that debuted online on YouTube Premium. Now it is available on Netflix. The series remains true to the original concept of the characters and Johnny Lawrence’s reopening of the Cobra Kai dojo to correct his errors. Daniel LaRusso might be doing well professionally, but he is still grieving the loss of Mr. Miyagi. Season 3 is so enjoyable that we already look forward to Cobra Kai series 4, which brings back Terry Silver, the legendary villain.

The Legend of Korra

After you’ve watched Avatar: The Last Airbender and are done with Avatar: The Last Airbender (or any other series), you can finally stream The Legend of Korra on Netflix. Korra explores complicated themes of politics and identity in a manner that is ambitious, and sometimes divisive.

The Last Dance

The Last Dance, an ESPN Michael Jordan documentary series, appeals to fans as well as non-fans. The show features personalities who leap off the screen. While the main focus of the series is Phil Jackson and Jordan, Dennis Rodman’s eccentric personality and lack of interest in practice are notable aspects. Scottie Pippen and Scottie Pippen’s work in MJ’s shadow are also entertaining.

Sometimes the devil becomes his advocate. Sometimes, he just needs a break.

This is where he makes friends with Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German).

Unsolved Mysteries

Netflix’s classic true-crime documentary series is being remade with a modern twist. The narration may not be there anymore, but the episodes still contain riveting tales about missing persons and murder as well as UFO sightings. Each episode in the Unsolved Mysteries is a different case. This makes the stories more compelling and gives more life to the characters. However, you might find it difficult to sleep due to the combination of being too scared of falling down a Reddit speculation hole. If this is too frightening for your kids, you can check our guide on how Netflix parental controls are set up.

Netflix is bringing the spirit of 1990’s Portlandia to you without even having to visit. Brandy Norwood was an R&B singer who starred in Moesha. The UPN series was brought in in the middle of the season and quickly became a hit. Netflix now offers a streaming service that allows anyone to enjoy its amazing run. The series addressed what seemed to be the major social issues at the time, including drug abuse and teenage pregnancy.

Netflix’s Dark has ended. A fascinating drama that rewards close observation, it is now complete. Highly recommended. It is about two children who go missing from Winden in Germany. Dark is commended for the way it created momentum instead of watching it disappear like a poorly-run show (Hi, LOST).

The Umbrella Academy

The Umbrella Academy Season 2’s premiere weekend on Netflix came to an end, and I received the same request repeatedly: “ok, where’s season 3?” It’s not difficult to see why. The Umbrella Academy was a great success for Netflix. The series adapted the comic books of the name to make it riveting TV. The seven Hargreeves adopted siblings must survive their own devastating powers. Season 2 brings the kids back in the 1960s to avoid more disaster. And here’s all we know about The Umbrella Academy’s season 3.

Baby-Sitters Club

This series adaptation of the popular YA book series is sweet, positive, and heartwarming. It takes the classic story of a group of teenagers who create a babysitting agency and adds modern elements, such as smartphones and social media. But the main themes remain the same: friendships and compassions, loyalty, forgiveness, understanding, and loyalty.

Community is Dan Harmon’s (Rick & Morty)’s the product. It focuses primarily upon a Greendale Community College Study Group that’s been founded by Jeff Winger, a lazy lawyer (Joel McHale), which is barred from practicing law and trying for a mate. Donald Glover and Allison Brie excel as Troy. Community is not only one among the top Netflix shows right now, but also one of our favorite sitcoms. The best Netflix alternatives offer more great sitcoms than Netflix.

ark experienced what I call “Didn’t they just watch that?” Syndrome. Jason Bateman and Laura Linney play “Marty” (Wendy Byrde), who are forced to live in the shadowy, seedy world of the underworld to make ends work. Despite mixed early reviews, season 3 offers a great platform for Laura Linney to flourish on screen. But, are you ready to watch the finale and the second-season Ozark season 4?

Schitt’s Creek comes from Arrested Development. You take Arrested Development and subtract its nihilism. Now add characters who are truly endearing and you have Schitt’s Creek. It was based on a similar concept — a wealthy family loses their fortune. However, it created characters you can root for, including two from Eugene Levy’s father and son team. Netflix just released Schitt’s Creek’s sixth and final season.

Russian Doll

First of all, Russian Doll is the series Natasha Lyonne (its creator, star, and writer) long ago deserved. Since she has spent most of her career as an actor and not as a director, it’s a comedy and heartwarming show. Its clever and twisty premise is so great that we won’t say much else. Russian Doll’s originality is what makes it one of our favorite shows on Netflix. The Russian Doll Season 2 is now available!

Did you think we had enough crime dramas? But think again. Mindhunter provided cinema-quality visuals, strong character development, and brought crime back to the 1970s when police began to investigate serial killers. It’s a Netflix favorite because of its outstanding acting and moody writing. It is disappointing to learn that MIndhunter has been placed on indefinite hiatus.

It follows a brazen toucan named Tuca (voiced primarily by Tiffany Haddish), as well as an anxiety-ridden songbird named Bertie, played by Ali Wong. They first meet when they share an apartment. Tuca + Bertie is one of the best shows currently on Netflix. I say “right now”, because it’s not clear if Tuca + Bertie will end up with Rick & Morty on HBO Max. S2 is being picked up by Adult Swim.
