There was a world before Netflix wherein we didn’t have the word ‘binge-watching‘ as it uses today. Netflix shook the video streaming content ecosystem with its mammoth collection, which includes Originals and licensed TV series and movies. Netflix’s huge variety of content and user-friendly interactive platform make it a cultural icon in the entertainment industry over the years. The streaming giant’s vast range of exclusives, originals and classics are enough to make every movie buff ecstatic.
A huge part of Netflix’s dominance over rivals like Amazon Prime Video is because of an enormous repository of syndicated content. Netflix is keen to keep the nostalgia on by streaming thrillers like Breaking Bad. It is expanding its reach and scope through the distribution of original movies and TV series. Netflix Original movie ‘Roma’ made history at the Oscars this year by taking home the awards for Best Cinematography, Best Director and Best Foreign Language Film. With Amazon Prime Video and Apple’s flagship streaming service Apple TV+ offering a neck and neck race, Netflix will provide more original content in the coming months. So, here’s the list of really good thriller TV shows on Netflix that are available to stream right now.
14. Orange is the New Black (2013 – Present)
Based on the book of the same name, ‘Orange is the New Black’ earned critical acclaim and popularity alike. The incredible series is created by Jenji Kohan and chronicles the day-to-day events in Litchfield, a minimum-security prison. The prison comedy-drama centers on Piper Chapman, played by Taylor Schilling, who is sentenced to spend time behind the bars for her association with a drug trafficker 10 years earlier. Being a successful PR executive in the external world, Chapman struggles to cope up with the unexpected friendships and conflicts evolve when she is surrounded by an eccentric group of women inmates. Even though Netflix is pretty tight-lipped about the seventh and last season of ‘Orange is the New Black,’ reports suggest that the long-awaited final season will be aired soon.
13. Stranger Things (2016 – Present)
‘Stranger Things‘ is one of the most talked about shows on Netflix. The popular series returns for a third season this year.
