What to watch on Netflix series

There are lots of best tv series to watch on Netflix, here is the list of the Best TV Shows on Netflix to Watch Right Now (February 2022)

Inventing Anna

This limited series is the first show superproducer Shonda Rhimes has created since Scandal, and the true story that got her to open up Final Draft again is a doozy. It’s the only-in-America-and-New-York-City-specifically saga of Anna Delvey, played by Ozark’s Julia Garner, a wealthy German socialite who took New York society by storm in the mid-2010s — only it turned out she wasn’t wealthy or even technically German.

She was a Russia-born con artist named Anna Sorokin who scammed various people and institutions out of hundreds of thousands of dollars thanks to her nearly supernatural self-confidence. She became famous thanks to a bombshell New York Magazine story, the writing of which drives the plot of Inventing Anna, as journalist Vivian Kent (Anna Chlumsky) tries to answer the question, “Who is Anna Delvey?”

Squid Game

Who remembers playing childhood games for fun on the playground? Who remembers playing them FOR YOUR LIFE? The unexpected hit Korean drama Squid Game is more the latter, as a group of people in bad need of money are taken in by a secret organization that has them play games — like Red Light, Green Light — for money. The catch? They lose, they die. Violently. What separates this from something like Saw is the humanity given to the characters. You’ll care about some of these people… and then they will die.

All of Us Are Dead  

The jolting thriller about a zombie virus outbreak at a high school follows students as they desperately fight against flesh-eating monsters — some of whom had been their human friends just minutes before. Starring Yoon Chan-young, Park Ji-hu, Park Solomon, Cho Yi-hyun, and Squid Game’s Lee Yoo-mi, the series based on the webtoon Now at Our School is a fresh take on the zombie genre with its centering of teen characters and its setting that transforms ordinary classrooms into vicious battlegrounds. As the virus spreads beyond the walls of the school, the show’s exploration of themes including the corruption of authority and the abuse of power also becomes increasingly apparent.

Ozark

Netflix’s crowd-pleasing crime thriller returns with the first half of its extended final season. These seven episodes find Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) doing all the unsavory stuff they always have to do to keep their heads above water, but this time, they’re not just laundering money, they’re laundering cartel boss Omar Navarro (Felix Solis) himself, as he wants to move to America as a free man. Can Marty and Wendy bribe, threaten, and blackmail enough people into completing their assignment? Maybe — if all the headaches they’re dealing with at home, like their teenage son Jonah (Skylar Gaertner) taking a job laundering money for Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner) and Darlene Snell (Lisa Emery), don’t cause their whole house of cards to come crashing down. There’s no TV family more stressful than the Byrdes.

Cobra Kai

It’s hard to believe that a series following the lives of Johnny (William Zabka) and Daniel (Ralph Macchio) from The Karate Kid would be as good as Cobra Kai is, but there’s some sort of indescribable magic going on that makes it work. Following up on Johnny in present day, Cobra Kai wonders what would happen if his rivalry with Daniel continued into their adult lives, culminating in them creating their own karate dojos where a new generation of martial artists fight for respect, rumble with their parents, and get into love triangles. The show’s self-awareness holds everything together, but it’s the twisting (albeit predictable) plot that makes it so bingeable. In Season 4, a new enemy appears, but is it enough to put a pause on Johnny and Daniel’s rivalry?

Emily in Paris

Emily in Paris (and you gotta say it like it rhymes), who haunts the dreams of actual Parisians, is back on the streets of Paris like some kind of colorfully dressed cryptid. The new episodes kick off where Season 1 left off, with the titular American in Paris getting herself into a love triangle after sleeping with Gabriel (Lucas Bravo), which puts her in a tight spot with Camille (Camille Razat). Mon dieu! She’s also wearing a checkered bucket hat in the trailer. Hard to tell which sin is worse.

The Witcher

It’s been two long years since Netflix released The Witcher Season 1, but Season 2 of the fantasy hit is well worth the wait. Henry Cavill returns as Geralt of Rivia, the world-weary slayer of monsters who is tasked by destiny with protecting the magical Crown Princess Ciri (Freya Allan) from many different pursuers who all want her for their own nefarious ends. Season 2 is told in a linear fashion, which makes it easier to follow than Season 1, which had a timeline so complicated there are jokes about it in Season 2. But it’s still a hardcore fantasy show that will satisfy the nerdiest fans of Andrzej Sapkowski’s multimedia franchise. This season, Geralt battles numerous elaborate CGI monsters, but his greatest foe is the plot.

Money Heist

Money Heist, Álex Pina’s Spanish bank heist series. Pina’s preference for style and mystery over everything else is all over Money Heist, making it highly bingeable and perfect for the Netflix formula. Action! Drama! Skin! More action!
