We’ve all likely finished a couple of TV series and movie franchises this year. Given that we all didn’t have any option but to stay at home, Netflix and other streaming apps and sites were our friends and companion – and even refuge – throughout this year.

Here are our top 10 picks of Netflix series you should binge-watch if you haven’t. But if you have, these are also series worth rewatching soon.

1. Queen’s Gambit – One of the newest series you should start watching is Queen’s Gambit. It’s a story packed full of excitement and drama with drug abuse, romance, and self-realization. Each chess match you’ll see feels like you’re watching a wild adrenaline-filled car chase. Currently, it’s on its 1st season with 7 episodes.

2. The Haunting of Bly Minor – If you loved The Haunting of Hill House, then you’ll surely enjoy The Haunting of Bly Minor. This sequel of The Haunting series has a new story to tell, but with the same amount of suspense and horror (even more) to add to your growing list of horror films to watch. This current season has 9 episodes you can binge-watch to.

3. Schitt’s Creek – Now known as one of Netflix’s best comedy shows, Schitt’s Creek is about a wealthy family losing all of their money and having to restart their lives in the town they purchased as a birthday joke. This sitcom has garnered quite an attention for winning 15 primetime Emmy awards this year for its 6th and final season.

4. Dark – If you haven’t seen Dark yet, then we suggest watching without so much as researching on it. This German sci-fi thriller will surely blow you away with how well it was plotted and produced. Delve right into the 3 seasons if you’re looking for some mystery and excitement to add to your watch list.

5. Sex Education – From the title alone, you know what this series about. Yet you’ll be surprised at how deep the plot will take you without giving you a burden, but instead will make you laugh from time to time. Sex Education is about learning and exploring issues about sexuality, gender identity, and more. You can find 2 seasons currently but the 3rd season will be expected in 2021.

6. The Crown – A series worth watching even for royalties. If you haven’t seen The Crown yet, then you should get on board immediately. The series tells the lives of Britain’s current royal family from Queen Elizabeth’s wedding to Prince Philip to how Princess Diana becomes part of the family. This British drama currently has 3 seasons on Netflix but the 4th season is coming very soon – this month, to be exact!

7. Stranger Things – We’re pretty sure you’ve heard of Stranger Things already and might be following the series unfold. If you haven’t, it’s a story that follows a group of friends, stumbling upon a secret lab and all its shady ongoings, and having a myriad of adventures that would test them and their friendships and relationships. This series that gives homage to the 80s currently has 3 seasons on Netflix and a new one they’re currently filming.

8. Breaking Bad – Definitely a must-binge watch series on Netflix, Breaking Bad is not just about drug addiction, making, dealing, and every possible cliché you can think of. However, there’s more to it than meets the eye and has been brilliantly shown throughout the series. You can watch all of its seasons on Netflix, and if you feel like watching something similar, we recommend watching Better Call Saul which is made by the same creator, Vince Gilligan.

9. Parks and Recreation – An oldie but a goodie. If you loved The Office and Community, Parks and Recreation is right up your alley. With the same mockumentary style and comedy, you’ll enjoy every bit of episode you’ll watch – or rewatch! It’s a classic and you can find all 7 seasons currently on Netflix.

10.  Queer Eye – We all love a good makeover story, and who better to do it than the current fab five. What sets this version of Queer Eye is that it’s not just focused on men, but pretty much everyone. Each episode is as funny and as heartwarming as the next. You’ll probably tear up a couple of times too. It’s currently in its 5th season. You’ll also find a new series which takes the Fab 5 to Tokyo.
