The Crown Season 2: December 8

Even if you’re not a big fan of history, or don’t really care about the monarchy in Britain, Crown is still a series you’d love for it’s sheer sarcasm, storytelling and plots. This is a good drama series with complex characters, contradicting points of view, where everyone seems to be right, along with a stellar cast. There is enough time for you to binge on season 1 if you haven’t seen it already before the second one drops. Highly recommended!

Honorary Mention

Black Mirror Season 4

A show based on everything that’s wrong and will be wrong with society – this one literally holds up a mirror to us – a black mirror showcasing the horrors of today’s world. Netflix is taking the genre of the show a little too literally. Though a release date hasn’t been announced yet, they have started rolling out trailers and teasers for the highly anticipated new season.
