The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (2023)

Netflix Australia is stacked. Really. There are so many TV shows to watch on the streaming service that it’s hard to land on just one without feeling like you’re missing out on the other. With a platform of this size, opportunity cost is high, which is why it pays to focus only on the best shows on Netflix Australia.

Not sure what is actually worth watching when it comes to Netflix TV shows? Check out our round-up below, which we’ll be constantly updating as the Boss Hunting office does the hard binging for you and recommends only the best – classic, overlooked, and new – things to watch on Netflix Australia..

Our Favourite TV Shows On Netflix Australia

Money Heist

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (1)

IMDb Rating:8.2
Showrunner:Alex Pina
Starring:Álvaro Morte, Úrsula Corberó, Itziar Ituño, Pedro Alonso
Genre:Crime drama

Money Heist was a fast favourite at the Boss Hunting office when it first came out, edging out pretty everything else as the must-watch show. More than a few seasons later and Money Heist has been cemented as one of the best shows Netflix had the good sense to acquire.

Álex Pina’s French heist crime drama series easily picked up Best Drama at the International Emmy Awards, validating the story of The Professor and his thriving recruits.

Given that the second and final half of Money Heist Season 5 has wrapped up, now is the perfect time to binge your way through the acclaimed series. It’s one of the best shows Netflix Australia has got going right now.


The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (2)

IMDb Rating:8.4
Showrunner:Steven Knight
Starring:Tom Hardy, Oona Chaplin, Jonathan Pryce, Jessie Buckley, Stephen Graham
Genre:Historical fiction

Although it’s been a few years since the series, led by Tom Hardy, premiered on BBC One in the UK, Taboo has been one of the most popular Netflix shows of 2022 thus far.

With a solid screenplay by Steven Knight and a strong cast, rounded out by the likes of Oona Chaplin (you’ll recognise her from “The Red Wedding” tragedy on Game of Thrones), Jonathan Pryce, Jessie Buckley and Stephen Graham, the eight-episode show is just about the best thing you can stream on Netflix right now.

A lot of reviews describe the show as a mix ofBridgerton, Gangs of New York and Peaky Blinders, which should give you an idea of how insanely entertaining Taboo can be within such a short time. With discussion on a Taboo Season 2 picking back up, now is a good a time as any to stream the show on Netflix Australia.

The Witcher

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (3)

IMDb Rating:8.2
Showrunner:Lauren Schmidt-Hissrich
Starring:Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Cahlotra, Joey Batey
Genre:Fantasy / adventure

It might have been hard to get into The Witcher when it first hit Netflix at the end of 2019.

Henry Cavill’s portrayal of protagonist Geralt of Rivia was a bit rocky at the start, but the actor steadily sunk into the role and built up a good dynamic with the rest of the cast by the end of the season.

Now with The Witcher Season 2 done and dusted, the video game adaptation is starting to take a broader appeal and really get into some meatier action. Netflix has such faith in the show that the streaming service has already started planning a prequel series – The Witcher: Blood Origin.

It’s a great watch, even if it took around eight episodes to actually get find its feet.

True Story

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (4)

IMDb Rating:7.5
Showrunner:Eric Newman
Starring:Kevin Hart, Wesley Snipes, Theo Rossi, Billy Zane, Lauren London

Kevin Hart’s True Story only dropped on Netflix recently, but the seven episode limited series has already been picking up massive acclaim.

It’s a bit more serious than Hart’s previous works with Wesley Snipes also starring in the complicated drama about a comic trying to get away with murder. LeBron James cites it as one of the best shows he watched in 2021, and the twists should definitely keep you hooked enough to binge all seven episodes in one sitting.


The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (5)

IMDb Rating:4.6
Starring:Vanda Chaloupková, Hana Baronová, Vojtech Hýzdal

While Haunted on Netflix doesn’t exactly shine with an all star cast, this pseudo-documentary and anthology series is worth watching when you’re attention-span is slipping.

The same producers from The Purge jumped on this one, building everything from the most famous haunted house to tiny corners of horror that set the scene for the disturbing tales.

The best episodes rarely hold back when it comes to eery, over-the-top ghost stories, so fans of supernatural horror will take to Haunted immediately. It’s simply one of the best horror shows on Netflix Australia.

Stay Close

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (6)

IMDb Rating:6.9
Red Production Company
Cush Jumbo, Richard Armitage, Daniel Francis, Jo Joyner

Stay Close is one of the latest trending TV shows on Netflix Australia, and unlike a few others that have been gaining popularity lately, it’s actually entertaining.

The British mystery drama mini-series brings to life the Harlan Coben novel of the same name, tracking four people who keep “dark secrets” from those closest to them and examining the nuanced ways in which lies can cause dysfunction both internally and externally.

Sure, it’s a cynical way to start the new year, but if you’ve already churned through the other TV shows on this list, then just know Stay Close is worth your time.

Squid Game

Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, Wi Ha-joon, HoYeon Jung, O Yeong-su, Heo Sung-tae
Survival thriller

Squid Game, the incredibly odd and violent South Korean survivalist drama, is a bit hard to explain. Despite its obscurity, the show is now on track to possibly become the most popular show Netflix has ever produced, validating the eccentric 9-episode series which follows hundreds of desperate adults participating in violent versions of children’s games.

Sweet Tooth

IMDb Rating:7.8
Jim Mickle
Christian Convery, Nonso Anozie, Stefania LaVie Owen, Nonso Anozie

I wasn’t too sold on Sweet Tooth when it started. Did we really need another post apocalyptic world to traverse alongside a hapless young kid? Turns out we did.

Sweet Tooth is a thoroughly entertaining show, following a half human, half deer and his protector as they try and navigate a world that is now full of distrust and fear. Robery Downey Jr co-produced Sweet Tooth, which has been adapted from Jeff Lemire’s comic book series with a sense of cold, brutal realism that anchors the fantasy elements in something a bit more palatable for a wider audience.

Midnight Mass

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (9)

IMDb Rating:7.7
Mike Flanagan
Kate Siegel, Zach Gilford, Kristin Lehman, Samantha Sloyan. Sheriff Hassan

Creative, bloody, and brilliant – Midnight Mass is the latest horror show on Netflix to take the streaming service by storm.

The Netflix series was conceived mostly by Mike Flanagan, who already proved his worth to Netflix by penning the brilliant The Haunting of Hill House. Now he takes a stab at a more cerebral and challenging form of horror, meditating on grief and faith in a similar way as shows like The Leftovers.

It’s absolutely one of the best shows on Netflix right now, especially when Midnight Mass eventually ramps up towards a brilliant ending.

Seinfeld really needs no explanation. It’s the greatest sitcom of all time, and all seasons are finally on Netflix after the streaming giant paid a fortune to Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David for global streaming rights.

Getting the entire show on Netflix has been years in the making, so if you feel like a nostalgia trip, there’s no greater series to watch on Netflix Australia.

IMDb Rating:7.8
Ben Ketai
Adam Brody, Edi Gathegi, Otmara Marrero, Kristen Ariza, Martin Freeman

StartUp popped up on Netflix Australia recent, with all three seasons of the tech-crime thriller available to stream now. And although it’s a divisive one, the Cryptocurrency inspired show is well worth a watch for those who prefer shows like Mr. Robot.

The story follows a talented hacker, Izzy, who creates a digital currency called GenCoin which has the unintended consequence of allowing organised crime to launder cash.

Martin Freeman and Adam Brody make up the acting muscle on StartUp, saving the sometimes dull dialogue to make this one of the best shows on Netflix Australia right now.

Shadow and Bone

IMDb Rating:7.6
Eric Heisserer
Jessie Mei Li, Archie Renaux, Freddy Carter, Amita Suman

Shadow and Bone is a relatively new release and has quickly become one of the most popular things to watch on Netflix Australia. That’s thanks to the source material mainly – Leigh Bardugo’s bestselling Grishaverse novels, following the story of a war-ravaged world that could rely on soldier and orphan Alina Starkov and her newfound powers.

Yeah, it’s a fantasy series with pops of sci fi. And sci fi rarely hits harder than comedy or drama on Netflix Australia (we’re looking at you Altered Carbon). But Shadow and Bone is definitely worth a binge seeing as there aren’t many episodes to get through, and the Netflix series could easily satisfy fans of shows like The 100 (also on Netflix Australia) and The Umbrella Academy (a Netflix Original that is absolutely on our round of the best shows on Netflix Australia).

The Queen’s Gambit

IMDb Rating:8.6
Scott Frank
Anya Taylor-Joy, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Moses Ingram, Harry Melling
Historical drama

The Queen’s Gambit has done more than turn Anya Taylor Joy into “that girl who was in Split” into one of the most recognisable and loved actors on Netflix. It’s easily one of the best, and most binge worthy, TV shows you can find on the streaming service.

The series follows Beth Harmon (cast lead Anya Taylor Joy), a young woman in a coming of age miniseries based on a 1983 novel of the same name, building up the life of an orphan chess prodigy who struggles with various personal problems like drug and alcohol dependency, which worsen along with her ascendancy to chess glory.

It’s not hard to subscribe to the award winning 7 episode miniseries, especially when it’s less about chess and more about the feeling of rejection and being underestimated offset by a fierce quiet storm of hope and self-believe.

Beth Harmon has quickly become one of Netflix’s most sympathetic and relatable characters.

I Think You Should Leave With Tim Robinson

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (14)

IMDb Rating:7.9
Zach Kanin, Tim Robinson
Tim Robinson, Patti Harrison, Sam Richardson, Conner O’Malley, Brianna Baker
Sketch comedy

An offbeat and wildly unique sketch comedy series with plenty of pop culture references, I Think You Should Leave with American comedian Tim Robinson is without any doubt one of the funniest shows on Netflix right now.

The show, which is based on making people very, very uncomfortable, is exactly the kind of thing meme lords crave. Consider it another entry in the box of intensely left-field comedy shows that you’d enjoy if you have a particular appetite for comedians like Eric Andre and Dave Chapelle.

With I Think You Should Leave season 3 is on its way as well, it seems like the batshit discomfort comedy of the first season is just the beginning.

Cobra Kai

IMDb Rating:8.6

Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, Xolo Maridueña, Jacob Bertrand, Peyton List
Comedy drama

Few TV shows have managed to do what Cobra Kai has done. Although the production, and sometimes the acting, plays out like a B-grade after-school special, this karate (and high school) drama brings back the two leads from 1984 classic The Karate Kid (that is, William Zabka and Ralph Macchio) and takes a many-years-later approach to tracking their life after the events of the original films.

Williaam Zabka was ostensibly the villain in the film franchise as Johnny Lawrence. Here he plays the protagonist, unwillingly starting a dojo from scratch, re-sparking his rivalry with Ralph Macchio’s Daniel LaRusso, and training high school kids in the art.

With Johnny Lawrence as the lead, the dynamic completely changes the way we view The Karate Kid series and really rounds out a story that has stretched across decades.

While it started out as a YouTube Originals TV series, Cobra Kai has since made the leap over to Netflix where it’s gone from a humble first season to one of the most talking about Netflix series of the past few years, thanks to a strong season 2 and season 3.

Now with Cobra Kai Season 4 out, and getting rave reviews, plus Cobra Kai Season 5 on its way in late 2022, it’s looking like the Netflix drama will be continuing its strong performance for the streaming service.

BoJack Horseman

IMDb Rating:8.8
Raphael Matthew Bob-Waksberg
Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, Alison Brie, Amy Sedaris
Animated comedy

Headed by Will Arnett as the titular BoJack Horseman, this wry and relentlessly poignant animated comedy series about a disgraced celebrity horse struck a chord for its depiction of depression and personal redemption.

Across six consistently excellent seasons, the writing from creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg is the type of majorly nihilistic yet poetic wit that really can’t be found in any other TV series to date (maybe except Louie).

Amongst all that sadness and philosophy, Bob-Waksberg and his incredibly talented cast managed to put forth a tragicomedy that revolutionised the animated comedy genre and tested the limits of what it could be, could say, and how it could make viewers reflect on their own life.

They say therapy is the gift of self-awareness, and with that in mind, watching BoJack Horseman is both a delightfully hilarious good time and an intense therapy session all in one. Although it can also feel like an abusive relationship.

Netflix deserves all the applause they get for taking a risk with this comedy.

Shonda Rhimes
Regé-Jean Page, Jonathan Bailey, Simone Ashley, Nicola Coughlan, Julie Andrews

Executive produced by Netflix golden child Shonda Rhimes (and her production company Shondaland), alongside creator Chris Van Dusen, Bridgerton is much more than the media hype – typically surrounding how handsome Regé-Jean Page is (“Bridgerton hot guy” is a popular Google search term) – would have you believe. It’s actually a good show, with a strong cast.

Inspired by author Julia Quinn’s 8 fiction novels, set between 1813 and 1825, the period drama twists through the perspectives of each child in the Bridgerton family – a British dynasty of great wealth and influence.

They are the vehicles for what is essentially a lively illustration of London’s Regency era, in which sex and gossip are intertwined, and the UK’s social scene blooms with more fuckin’ set against Baroque architecture than an Anaïs Nin novella.

Consider it the costume drama version of Gossip Girl if you will. Although with much better actors, steamier lingering glances, and no annoying voiceovers.

George Kay, François Uzan
Omar Sy, Shirine Boutella, Ludivine Sagnier, Clotide Hesme
Mystery thriller

Small screen drama and action that could easily be made into a movie, and shoot straight to the top of the box office. Lupin is one of the absolute best shows on Netflix Australia and an utterly compelling story of vengeance and downright entertaining heist action.

Omar Sy plays Assane Diop, a master of disguise and talented thief who has enough complexity to make him one of the best characters in any Netflix show to date.

Best of all, just about every moment of Lupin, across season one and season two, is just as entertaining as each other. Credit goes almost entirely to Omar Sy, whose portrayal of Assane Diop is fascinating to watch.

The compelling Netflix series has also been confirmed for the third season, which is currently under development. Even if you subscribe to Netflix just to watch this one show, you’ll be putting your cash to good use.

Here’s a great example of Netflix rescuing a beloved show from the chopping block and giving it a chance to redeem itself. After a so-so season 3, Lucifer was swiftly cancelled by Fox, but found new life on Netflix where it was able to push through a fourth, and almost universally acclaimed season.

Now the show is looking at a possible seventh season, reiterating just how strong the comeback was for this comedy drama based on characters by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg.

As fallen angel Lucifer Morningstar, actor Tom Ellis is at his best here, supported by a strong cast who give the characters life and help make the key plot point, Lucifer’s redemption, a fascinating arc.

Credit also must be given to creator Tom Kapinos, whose adaptation of these characters is pitch-perfect and feels authentically connected to the source material – The Sandman.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of the most valuable comedy series that Netflix has, constantly attracting acclaim as it follows a group of mostly idiots fumbling their way through the 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department.

Numerous awards and seven seasons later, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is considered must watch TV for those into action packed comedies that dial up the awkward humour but still manage to bring a lot of heart into every episode, right from the first season.

Lead Andy Samberg (as Jake Peralta) is at his best here, supported by a solid cast consisting of Terry Crews, Andre Braugher, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Melissa Fumero, and others.

While there is plenty of comedy TV series on Netflix, few can quite match the versatility and wit of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Although Season 3 may disappoint those who were looking for another show following Aziz Ansari and his pasta-making Dev Shah, Master of None is still one of the most consistently great comedy series on Netflix.

A Netflix Original, the observational comedy is rife with smart, biting social commentary that’s a bit more assertive than satire. But much more passive than in-your-face inspirations like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld and absurdist Louie.

With an overarching tender love story often sitting at the gooey centre of the show, it’s both a hilarious and deeply affecting watch that clearly shows Aziz Ansari has a lot to say.

One of the best comedy sitcoms of all time, and now one of the best shows on Netflix Australia. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is Will Smith at his very best, with every episode of the classic available to stream so you can remind yourself just how fresh and witty comedy writing used to be.

Though Seinfeld has returned to Netflix, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air more than held up the need for a classic sitcom while Jerry Seinfeld’s cash cow was absent. Friends doesn’t count, because Friends is not funny.

Although if you do like what is essentially the worst parts of straight-faced German humour whitewashed and turned into a script, both Friends and The Big Bang Theory are streaming now on Netflix Australia.

If you’ve had a binge of Making a Murderer and you don’t know which real life true story to follow next, it’s this. It’s not Don’t Fuck With Cats (although that’s quite good too), or Tiger King (also good), it’s this four-part documentary series on notorious serial killer Richard Ramirez.

Known for his highly publicised home invasion murders, the crime spree detailed across this docuseries is as chilling as anything, and executive producers Tiller Russel, Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman, and Tim Walsh do their absolute best at pulling you into this brutal world of carnage in Los Angeles.

Even if director Jason Hehir didn’t turn in the best work of his career, The Last Dance still would have been a hit. That’s, of course, credit to the subject of this 10-part docuseries co-produced by ESPN and Netflix. That subject: Michael Jordan.

The sports icon has his entire career analysed across this short, sweet, award winning series. Although it’s his final season with the Chicago Bulls that gets particular attention, bringing us never seen before AAA footage, as well as time with fellow legends like Steve Kerr, Scottie Pippen, and perennial loose cannon Dennis Rodman.

As far as shows on Netflix Australia that will inspire and intrigue, The Last Dance is one of the greatest things you can watch.

Tiger King, like Making A Murderer, is one of those true crime essentials that went far beyond Netflix and started making headlines upon release. Within the first 10 days of being on the streaming service, the insane story about a society of big cat conservationists and murder was reportedly streamed by 34.4 million people and became the first big non-COVID talking point since the pandemic began.

For fans of small town, big scale, true crime, few things you can watch on Netflix Australia are as deeply involving and memorable as watching these notorious big cat owners bicker.

And if you like this Netflix show, there are a few other similar genre essentials you can watch on Netflix right now, including Sophie: A Murder in West Cork.

While the UK version of The Office doesn’t seem to be on Netflix Australia right now, you’re in more than good hands with the Steve Carrell starring spin-off. The Office is one very, very rare example of the US making an almost identical version of a UK originated show, and not messing it up completely (Skins being a glaring example).

Whether you’ve seen it once before, or several times, it’s already worth dipping back into this genius play on awkward, free form comedy – one which has gone on proving highly influential both on the small screen and in the film industry. For over a decade, The Office remains one of the most highly regarded and influential comedies of our time.

Though it may stumble at times, particularly through the second season, Stranger Things is easily one of the best shows on Netflix Australia that you can watch right now. The sci-fi phenomenon is sprung by the disappearance of Will Byers near a government lab, resulting in a whole lot of Steven King homages as the local community search for answers.

The whole show evolves from being about a small town mystery to one of the most insanely epic Netflix shows the streaming giant has ever produced. With a young, talented cast, who deserve every little bit of credit they are given.

With Stranger Things Season 4 now well on its way, once again the sci fi series finds itself as one of the most discussed and headline-worthy series of our time.

One of the best things to happen to F1 in recent years was Netflix’sFormula 1:Drive To Survive. The unparalleled access to the high-stakes danger, politics, and drama of motorsport’s top-tier competition pulled in fans and newcomers alike to the sport, blowing Sunday night’s usual race coverage out of the water.

Season two saw the dramatic highs and lows of all 10 teams on the grid, but the chaos of a global pandemic in 2020 couldn’t have scripted the carnage, surprise, and entertainment we witnessed inthe third season.

World famous restaurateur David Chang, best known for being the founder of Momofuku, is the big, bright, and intensely knowledgeable guide behind Ugly Delicious. Although this isn’t just any travel and cooking show.

Artfully shot, the documentary series showcases one dish or concept each episode and, Anthony Bourdain style, showcases how food in different regions can help explore, explain, and illustrate the world’s greatest cultures.

The easy watch only ran for two seasons, and there aren’t many episodes, so it’s not hard to subscribe to this insightful Netflix series. And credit where credit is due – David Chang is just a really fucking cool guy and a pleasure to watch as he makes Ugly Delicious one of the best Netflix shows you can stream.

True crime documentary

The moment Netflix realised true crime could rack in the views like none other. Making a Murderer, a docuseries centred around the supposed wrongful murder conviction against Steven Avery had all the ingredients for a profoundly binge worthy”did he or didn’t he” mystery.

It delivered; not just on Netflix as a platform, but far beyond the streaming service itself. The first series was well and truly a cultural moment as it was proliferated throughout the news, inspiring numerous think pieces and even prompting actual reinvestigations, outrage, and more than a few conspiracy theories.

That’s no surprise though. It was a conspiracy, at least as far as the extremely well executed docuseries was concerned. The engrossing Netflix documentary series tracked how the Manitowoc County police department essentially framed Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey for the murder of 25-year-old Wisconsin photographer Teresa Halbach.

Though the second season failed to inspire the same amount of digital detective work as the first, both are well worth watching as they explore how a small town murder can bowl over into a nationwide talking point about corruption, coercion, and ethics.

Whether or not the title is on point is on the viewer to piece together, with pretty much everyone who happens to subscribe to Netflix divided over whether or not Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey should be free from their current sentences.

If you want to understand why Netflix Australia has so much of the true crime genre on its platform, have a watch of Making a Murderer.

In many opinions, Narcos is the action packed Netflix Original that remains the best thing the streaming service has ever done. Following the life of Pablo Escobar until the second season, the show packed in some incredible scenes as it forced us to watch the unflinching brutality of the drug trade and the cartels involved.

It’s one of the few series that remains strong throughout every episode, getting more intriguing as the increasingly tense life of Pablo Escobar is explored, and then dropped for an equally compelling look at the ongoing drug wars between cartels and the disturbing scenes that result.

The spin-off from Narcos focuses more heavily around the brutality of the Mexican drug cartels, moving away from Columbia with a better known cast telling the story of the Guadalajara Cartel and its swift rise to the top of the drug wars.

It’s not hard to subscribe to a show that keeps beating you on the head until the very end, throwing up incredible endings each episode, drawing you deeper into a very violent world of drugs, sex, and absolute street warfare.

Crime drama

Out of all the best shows on Netflix Australia that you could watch, Ozark just may be the finest. And while The Queen’s Gambit and Lupin are definitely up there, there’s something about this hugely involving backwaters drama that sticks. The cast is brilliant, the writing is superb, and creator Bill Dubuque has spun a story that only gets stronger as the episodes roll out.

The series follows Marty Byrde, played brilliantly by Jason Bateman, a financial planner who is drawn into a ridiculous debt and must escape with his family from Chicago to start a new life in the Ozarks laundering money for the Navarro cartel to save his and his family’s lives.

Both the first season and second season are strong enough, but it’s the third that really gets things going. And that’s exactly the kind of pacing you want for a binge watch.

To no one’s surprise, the show was been confirmed for a fourth season and with the cast as strong as ever, you can bet that it’s easily one of the best TV shows that you can stream on Netflix right now. That won’t change when the fourth and final season continues on Netflix, after the current run of the first seven episodes which were released in January 2022.

The final run of Ozark episodes will begin streaming towards the end of April 2022, wrapping up one of the best shows on Netflix Australia.

Crime drama

Fargo is nothing like the classic movie, although it does take place in the same world and has a similar tone. It’s cold, dreary, has those slightly Canadian-like accents, and is absolutely lethal in the way it slowly crawls into thick, fast, and violent action.

With each season tracking a new plot, the darkly humorous drama always manages to hit the spot. Given the consistent quality across three seasons, Fargo is easily one of the best TV shows of all time – certainly one of the best shows on Netflix Australia right now.

House of Cards

IMDb Rating:8.7
Beau Willimon
Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Kate Mara, Rachel Brosnahan, Michael Kelly
Political drama

The first Netflix Original and still – for the most part, anyway – one of the best. House of Cards was a prime showcase for the virtuoso acting of Kevin Spacey as Frank Underwood, whose master machinations saw him ascend to become President of the United States across numerous, genuinely shocking plot twists.

(Video) Everything Exciting & NEW on NETFLIX in September 2022

With a strong cast backing him up, Spacey put on a career best performance that pretty much built Netflix from a newcomer to the streaming service giant that it is today. You all know what eventually happened, and the show went downhill fast during its latter two seasons.

Despite the real life downfall of Kevin Spacey, it remains the very definition of a TV series perfect for a jaw-dropped weekend binge.

Yeah, there are a lot of episodes to catch up on if you haven’t seen it before, but this is one binge that’s worth it – even during the painfully slow parts.

The Crown

IMDb Rating:8.7
Peter Morgan
Olivia Colman, Tobias Menzies, Ben Daniels, Helena Bonham Carter
Political drama

Some of the most important moments in history are brought to life by an exceptionally talented cast in The Crown. The series follows the life of Queen Elizabeth II and leads right up to the 21st century – consider it a coming of age show for the British Royal Family and absolutely one of the best Netflix shows you can watch right now.

Strap in for a good week though, the historical drama has 40 episodes so far with plenty more to come. And while it’s not an easy watch some of the time, with a lot of slow burn and scene-chewing from the cast, the story is always deeply involving and insightful.

Easily one of the best historical dramas in recent memory, with most of the credit rightfully going to series creator and primary writer Peter Morgan.

Peaky Blinders

Steven Knight
Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson
Historical fiction

After finding itself on Netflix after originally debuting on BBC Two, Peaky Blinders is finally coming to an end with the sixth season confirmed as its last.

The fan favourite crime drama is one of the best period pieces of our time, from creator Steven Knight who deserves all the credit here for creating a world based on the often brutal outings of the Shelby family after World War I.

The cast, led by Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory, and Paul Anderson, is one of the most intensely watchable out of any of the Netflix shows you can stream right now.

You can check out the Peaky Blinders Season 6 trailer here before you stream the final season on Netflix Australia.

Historical drama

Vikings is as close to Game of Thrones as you’re going to get, without the disappointing ending.

Brutal, sexy, and highly dramatic with more shocking plot twists than your mind could keep up with. Each season is ready to stream on Netflix Australia, opening you up to a world of vintage Scandinavia and the constant battles that came with the Viking lifestyle.

As a genre series, it’s one of the most dominant war dramas of its time and has been so successful that the spin-off, Vikings: Valhalla, is well worth watching as well.

Marco Polo

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (41)

IMDb Rating:8.0
John Fusco
Lorenzo Richelmy, Benedict Wong, Kublai Khan, Joan Chen, Remy Hii

Much like Vikings, Marco Polo could fill that Game of Thrones shaped hole in your heart you’ve been trying to fill ever since Cersei became Queen Regent (it all fell apart from there).

The show is inspired by the titular character’s early years and involvement with the Kulbai Khan during the Mongol Empire and the Yuan Dynasty, creating this rich world that creator John Fusco brings to life along with a talented cast that includes Lorenzo Richelmy and Benedict Wong.

Although it was cancelled after only two seasons, Marco Polo is still worth a good binge seeing as each episode is solid, and it’s not hard to subscribe to something that really isn’t much of a commitment – at least not like Game of Thrones and Vikings is.

The Serpent

IMDb Rating:7.6
Gia Skova
Tahar Rahim, Travis Aaron Wade, Nigel Vonas, Kristopher Graves
Crime drama

Based on true events, The Serpent follows the story of Charles Sobhraj who, posing as a gem dealer, travels across Nepal, India and Thailand his girlfriend Marie-Andree Leclerg, committing various crimes and becoming the prime suspects in various murder cases.

Across the series, Sobhraj becomes Interpol’s most wanted man, spinning a fascinating tale of criminal mastery with plenty of credit going to lead actor Tahar Rahim. The world building across three continents is impressive, and the free spirited performance from the talented cast go a long way in locking this in as a must watch Netflix series.

Last Chance U: Basketball

IMDb Rating:8.3
Greg Whiteley
John Mosley, Joe Hampton, Jordan Polynice, Deshaun Highler
Sports docuseries

A spin-off of Emmy-winning show Last Chance U, this series from creator Greg Whitley is every bit as fascinating as the original as Last Chance U: Basketball takes a close look inside the world of community college basketball.

Only 8 episodes make up the series, following primarily the East Lost Angeles College Huskies as they seek to win the California state basketball championship. A relatively new release on the platform, it’s one of the best things to watch on Netflix Australia in 2022.

The Umbrella Academy

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (44)

IMDb Rating:8.0
Gerard Way
Aidan Gallagher, Elliot Page, Robert Sheehan, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman
Action fiction

The Umbrella Academy is one of the best choices you can make if you’re looking for a superhero drama to watch on Netflix. Following a family of uniquely talented adopted kids who grow up, grow apart, and come together over the death of their adoptive father, the series is a deep, well-paced dive into the supernatural for fans of Marvel movies.

The acting makes this one here, with the plot sometimes feeling a bit too contrived. It’s the personalities on the screen which hold up these slow-burning moments, getting The Umbrella Academy over as one of the most distinctive and memorable superhero projects on Netflix.

With a third season about to drop on Netflix Australia, with new characters making up the Sparrow Academy, now is the perfect time to bring through the first two seasons.

When They See Us

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (45)

IMDb Rating:8.9
Ava DuVernay
Asante Blackk, Caleel Harris, Ethan Herisse, Jharrel Jerome

When They See Us is a limited series by creator Ava DuVernay that sets out to tell the story of absolute injustice, following the wrongful convictions of five young black teenagers in the real life 1989 Central Park jogger case. Convicted of sexual assault, the boys’ lives are absolutely ruined as racism and crooked police work keep them imprisoned for decades.

If you want a quick, easy limited series to watch that will have an impact that is lost on bigger, longer series, consider When They See Us one of the best shows on Netflix Australia to watch.

Special credit must go to DuVernay, who approaches the deeply affecting story with great sensitivity and avoids getting caught up in any overly dramatic or stylised clichés, instead of letting the supremely talented cast work their magic.

Parks & Recreation

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (46)

IMDb Rating:8.6
Greg Daniels, Michael Schur
Amy Poehler, Jim O’Heir, Nick Offerman, Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari
Political comedy

It’s hard to get a comedy as pitch-perfect, witty and biting as Parks & Recreation. With all seasons of the hit mockumentary (turned straight sitcom) available on Netflix Australia, the laugh out loud funny series is the kind of Seinfeld level genius that few series of the same genre can match up to.

The wickedly talented cast led by Amy Poehler, and supported by the likes of Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, Rashida Jones, and others, will go down in comedy history as one of the greatest ensembles ever put to the small screen.

Best of all, it’s one of the best shows on Netflix Australia with a replay value that will likely never run out. Like Seinfeld, it’s one of those things you could watch over and over again without ever wanting to look away.

For what is essentially a procedural, spy thriller Blacklist is as good as they come. Forget series like NCIS, this is more Person of Interest, with each episode really nailing the overarching story and contextualising the constantly shocking plot in new and unique ways.

The series follows, at least initially, FBI profiler Elizabeth Keen and her dynamic relationship with the enigmatic Raymond Reddington, a criminal who has eluded capture for years.

With Reddington now helping the FBI on his own terms, a web of highly organised crime is strung throughout what is now 8 seasons of all killer, no filler. Okay, maybe there’s some filler, but for the most part, this is easily one of the best shows on Netflix Australia for those who want a long show they can really sink their teeth into.


The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (48)

IMDb Rating:8.5
Dan Harmon
Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Donald Glover, Chevy Chase

Credit goes where credit is due. Community managed to muscle through the likes of 30 Rock and Parks & Recreation to share the spotlight as one of the greatest comedy series in recent memory.

The unique cast was key to this, with the show following a rag-tag through community college as friends turn into family and the premise is used, incredibly creatively, to satire just about every pop culture moment known to man.

From plots as simple as paintball to complex references, what creator Dan Harmon has put forth will go down in history as one of the more cerebral comedy series of our time.

If that doesn’t sound like one of the best shows on Netflix Australia that you can binge right now, nothing is.

The Defiant Ones

IMDb Rating:8.5
Allen Hughes
Jimmy Iovine, Dr Dre, Trent Reznor, Ice Cube, Alonzo Williams, Bono
Music docuseries

Like reading a good biography of your favourite entrepreneur, The Defiant Ones is an incredibly inspiring and motivating look at the unparalleled business acumen of music legends Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre.

While the hip hop industry is full of hardy, rags-to-riches stories, it’s this partnership that manages to defy all others and really provide insight into what it takes to come from nothing and end up having everything.

If you’ve been lacking in motivation, whether it’s for that fledging start up or even just losing some weight, pop this in and let it guide you. It’s not just one of the best shows on Netflix that you could watch, it’s also one of the most important.

Dark Tourist

The phenomenon of ‘Dark Tourism’ will never not be interesting. Dark Tourist explores that, with the travel documentary series really picking apart the psychology behind some of the world’s most fascinatingly terrifying destinations and events, and those who are drawn to them.

(Video) Top 10 Best Netflix Movies to Watch Right Now! 2022

Journalist David Farrier travels everywhere between haunted forests to nuclear lakes and manages to really get at the macabre reasons why tourists are drawn to such suffering, grotesquery, and tragedy.

Netflix has been lacking with travel documentaries as of late, but luckily Dark Tourist more than fills the void.

Chef’s Table

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (51)

IMDb Rating:8.5
David Gelb
Ruth Reichl, Massimo Bottura, Francis Mallmann, Magnus Nilsson, Bill Buford
Food docuseries

Much like Ugly Delicious, Chef’s Table is a revolution for food documentaries with dynamic photography and a deep exploration of some of the world’s greatest restaurants and the chefs that sit behind them. It’s the type of “if I could only eat my screen right now” sensory overload that you could almost smell wafting from the screen, and it’s nowhere near wise to watch this on an empty stomach.

With only 30 episodes across 6 seasons, it’s not much of a commitment to binge what is easily one of the best shows on Netflix Australia.

The Haunting of Hill House

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (52)

IMDb Rating:8.6
Mike Flanagan
Michiel Huisman, Elizabeth Reaser, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Kate Siegel, Victoria Pedretti
Supernatural horror / drama

You might want to forget the second season of The Haunting series (The Haunting of Bly Manor) but The Haunting of Hill House is absolutely one of the must watch shows on Netflix.

Directed brilliantly by Mike Flanagan, the ghost story follows the trend of the horror genre finding new meaning in the exploration of trauma and the lingering effects of mental illness. And it’s all beautifully tied into one engrossing, highly emotive family drama that centres around a haunted house and the poignant stories born out of it.

If you want a horror film that could easily make a grown man cry, this is one of the best shows on Netflix Australia you could stream right now.

Black Mirror

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (53)

IMDb Rating:8.8
Charles Brooker
Jon Hamm, Oona Chaplin, Miley Cyrus, Bryce Dallas-Howard, Jesse Plemmons
Sci fi

Black Mirror is as much of a mind fuck as you’ve heard, with the dynamic anthology series by creator Charlie Brooker really tackling some of the biggest fears, absurdities, and anxieties of modern society through a satirical lens.

And though it’s funny at times, Black Mirror is much more serious than just a comedy, with an absurdist take on observational anxiety that is easily unlike any other TV show you’ll find on Netflix. Subscribe to this mind-bending series and I guarantee you’ll think differently about society.

Marvel’s Daredevil

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (54)

IMDb Rating:8.6
Drew Goddard
Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann-Woll, Elden Henson, Jon Bernthal, Vincent D’Onofrio
Superhero drama

Marvel’s Daredevil started the super brand’s presence on Netflix and remains the best superhero show (aside from The Umbrella Academy) that you can stream right now.

Playing around with heightened senses following an incident that leaves him blind, the series follows lawyer Matt Murdock who is a by-night vigilante fighting crime around Hell’s Kitchen.

It’s standard superhero fare really, but what got this over amongst the endless stream of Marvel content in popular culture, was the incredibly thick, beautifully choreographed fight scenes that director Mark Steven Johnson absolutely owns with various one shots and smart angles.

Marvel’s The Punisher

IMDb Rating:8.5
Steve Lightfoot
Jon Bernthal, Amber Rose Revah, Ben Barnes, Jason R Moore
Superhero drama

Although Marvel’s presence has grown from Daredevil to include Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, none are as watchable as Marvel’s The Punisher. That’s mostly thanks to a muscular performance by Jon Bernthal whose machismo drips all over this script and brings it to life with visceral, jaw-dropping action scenes.

Think Jon Bernthal’s loose cannon character, Shane from The Walking Dead dialled up to 11 with a freewheeling lethality like no other. It’s one of the most exciting things you can watch on Netflix right now.

IMDb Rating:8.6
David Fincher
Holt McCallany, Jonathan Groff, Anna Torv, Cameron Britton, Sonny Valicenti
Psychological thriller

Mindhunter takes that never-ending obsession with serial killers and turns that into a serialised show about the beginnings of criminal psychology and the birth of criminal profiling.

Supported by a brilliant cast, the graphic, relentlessly dark show has easily become a huge win for those who like their series all burly, serious, and disturbing.

Although it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting a third season, at least anytime soon, it’s worth binging through both seasons of this unique genre series.

The Sinner

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (57)

IMDb Rating:7.9
Derek Simonds
Bill Pullman, Carrie Coon, Jessica Hecht, Jessica Biel, Adam LeFevre
Detective drama

Much like Mindhunter, The Sinner is another no-brainer for those who like something with a bit of a darker edge to it. The anthology series is driven by lead Bill Pullman as police detective Harry Ambrose, the only character to appear in all four seasons so far.

Each of the three seasons deals with a different, incredibly complex and mind-fucking case that really gets at the fact that not everything is as straightforward as it seems.

Mixing classic elements of a whodunnit in with a modern police mystery (like The Killing or Top of the Lake), it’s easy to subscribe to watch all seasons of this compelling Netflix series, even the hard-to-stomach third one which deals with complete and utter nihilism.

After Life

The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (58)

IMDb Rating:8.4
Ricky Gervais
Ricky Gervais, Diane Morgan, David Earl, Ashley Jensen, Mandeep Dhillon

Ricky Gervais gets serious (and seriously depressing) with After Life, as he explored loss, trauma, and immense grief in this British comedy drama.

If you’re not in the mood for something so deeply effective and hinged on existentialism, it would be wise to stay away, but for anyone who doesn’t mind ugly crying at the TV, this is your bag. It falls in line with similar shows like The Leftovers and This Is Us.

Who knew David Brent could be so deep, making After Life such a big hit that its third and final season should easily be one of the best things to watch on Netflix this year.

Chappelle’s Show

IMDb Rating:8.8
Neal Brennan
Dave Chapelle, Charlie Murphy, Donnell Rawlings, Paul Mooney, Rudy Rush

After some controversy, Netflix is finally streaming Chapelle’s Show, which turned Dave Chapelle from that dude who died under the plane in Con Air (spoilers, sorry), into a bonafide star and one of the most razor sharp and anticipated comedians of our time.

A sketch show with some of the wildest, most aggressively satirical segments ever put to screen, it’s wise to subscribe to each and every one of these seasons (not that there are many of them, anyway) to witness just how genius and liberated Chapelle can be.

South Park

Matt Stone, Trey Parker
Matt Stone, Trey Parker
Animated comedy

While not every one of the many seasons of South Park is available to stream on Netflix right now (there’s only 6 currently), there’s still enough here to echo just how brilliantly aggressive South Park can be.

The absurd, awkward, and downright fearless comedy holds no punches as it’s free to tackle everything from woke culture to influencers and just about everything else in modern society.

IMDb Rating:8.5
Bryan Fuller
Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, Hettienne Park, Gillian Anderson, Laurence Fishburne
Psycholigical drama

Perhaps the greatest of all horror TV shows. This incredibly stylish project flipped the entire Hannibal the Cannibal story on its head, turning it into a potent blend of food porn, art-house direction, and exceptional acting. It’s shot in a way that makes each murder feel like seemingly miraculous events.

Mads Mikkelsen as the murderous villain in question was every bit as seductive and terrifying as Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs. With the TV series now seeing a Netflix release, it’s absolutely one of the greatest choices you could make when looking for something new to binge.


The Best Shows On Netflix Australia Right Now [July 2022] (62)

IMDb Rating:8.3
Bryan Fuller
Claire Danes, Rupert Friend, Damian Lewis, Morena Baccarin, Mandy Patinkin, Maury Sterling
Political thriller

Claire Danes has given a career-best performance as CIA officer Carrie Mathison, juggling a mental illness with a dogged determination to do her job at the best of her abilities. And those abilities were sharp as hell, placing her as the expert negotiator, manipulator, and spy needed to stop numerous terrorist threats and activities across the world. Watching her try and balance this with a fairly complicated life is fascinating and Danes sells it well.

The gritty realism and sheer brutality of it all took this from being a standard Showtime drama to one of the best TV moments in recent memory. And it ends on a satisfying note too, making this the perfect binge.
