The New Netflix Programmes Everyone is Talking About

Exams are finally over so there is literally no excuse to not join in the conversation about all the latest series Netflix has released.

There is something for everyone, but in case you’re unsure – here’s a quick rundown of what to expect from Netflix’s newest releases.

Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why

As with the first season, 13 Reasons Why is not without its controversy. Filled with triggering content on sensitive topics such as depression, self-harm, rape and sexual assault, the contentious series is back for its second innings. This season follows the court case to identify whether Liberty High was negligent in their care of Hannah Baker. It’s a gripping storyline and will certainly get you hooked – but be warned, the last episode is not for the faint-hearted.



It’s a British TV drama set in an affluent gated community that follows the story of a widowed father whose 16-year-old daughter goes missing. As he frantically searchers for her, he soon uncovers dark secrets about those closest to him.



Mindy Kaling's latest creation follows the story of a charismatic gym owner living an easy life, until his show-business obsessed 15-year-old son is dropped off at his doorstep. Expect cute, uplifting storylines, and classic Kaling humour.


The Rain

A seriously gripping thriller where rainfall has been transformed into deadly water bombs of death, due to a deadly virus latching on to the precipitation. The series follows young survivors of the catastrophe as they struggle to survive. The same teenage dramas of love, jealousy and youth are highlighted, albeit set in a post-apocalyptic world.



Netflix have teased us with the trailer of this dark new thriller. Starring Gossip Girl legend Dan Humphries (Penn Badgley) as the main character, Joe, in this new series. It looks set to follow the story of a guy who exploits technology to use in his own obsessive pursuit of a girl, stopping at nothing to ensure that nothing gets in the way of his relationship with girlfriend Beck. 'You' looks like it will have us gripped for days, so we cannot wait for it to be released on our screens sometime soon!


Lost In Space

This one is for all you sci-fi fans out there. In the year 2048 Earth is facing never-ending global problems, so many explorers choose to seek a solution by restarting society on a paradise-like planet. However, it is not all as easy as it seems. The plot traces the Robinson family who crash land on another planet, having to fight against the odds in order to survive.


Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 2

Ellie Kemper is back with the fourth instalment of the quirky comedy - but only the first half! Be sure to savour these first few episodes, as the final (and last!) ones won't hit screens until 2019!


And if that isn’t enough to get your teeth into here is a list of other renowned series that are well worth the watch if you haven’t already:

  1. The Sinner – a scary thriller that will have you glued to your screen for days on end.

  2. Friends – this doesn’t need any introduction.

  3. Orange Is The New Black – follow the stories of inmates in a female prison. We weren’t convinced at first either, but honestly it’s a must-see.

  4. Breaking Bad – it’s been around a while now, but still an absolute classic in the Netflix world. If you haven’t seen it yet (where have you been?!) and if you have seen it, a re-watch isn’t a bad shout.

  5. Riverdale – high school drama crossed with murder mystery– what’s not to like?

  6. Suits – time to see Meghan Markle in a whole new light.

  7. The Crown – on the note of royalty… you won’t be able to think of the Queen in the same way again. This drama that traces the Royal family is definitely not just something to watch with your parents.

  8. Stranger Things – it’s a weird one to describe. But make sure you watch it – you won’t regret it.

  9. Black Mirror – each episode is completely different, showing the dark-side of innovative new technologies. It may just about blow your mind.

  10. The Great British Bake Off – for when you need some light-hearted fun (and yummy baked goodies).

Happy binge-watching!!
