UPDATING: It will be a hot summer on Netflix. Not only has the last season of Weird stuff landed, but now the new (and last but not least) season of Orange is the new black is here too. Does the past season give the characters we got to know and love about the end they deserve? You have to go to Netflix to find out.

If you are more afterwards than fiction, you may want to take a look The big hack: an explanation of the Cambridge Analytics data scandal – or the brand new Enter the anime documentary with interviews with animators in the Japanese TV industry.

Netflix offers a wide range of TV programs, from old classic sitcoms and soap operas to its own Netflix Originals, produced in-house and born like Bojack Horseman, Orange is the new black and the brilliant idiosyncratic Russian doll – that's just renewed for a second season!

But the days when there was a big show that everyone was talking about at the water cooler are long gone – now there are all sorts of big-hitters and cult hits competing for your eyes, with TV shows ' s being added and removed from Netflix almost daily.

The streaming platform will continue to follow its winning range of great TV content, with rising subscription prices and fierce competition from Disney Plus and Apple TV Plus, among others, when they are launched later this year.

We have compiled this guide for the best Netflix shows that you can now watch in the UK – and so you can stay up to date with the busy Netflix release schedule that we will update you once a week. You can do the box on the right for the best Netflix shows per category – comedy, drama, sci-fi, Netflix Originals and the like – or read below for what the service goes in and out.

If you're more of an Amazon Prime fan and there's a lot to keep with this Netflix rival, then it's best to see Amazon Prime TV shows in our separate guide.

New Netflix TV program ' s

There is now a great selection of new shows to watch on Netflix, including the second season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which is even stronger, darker and spookier than the first, and a new season of Charlie Brooker & apos; s sci-fi future shock series Black Mirror.

Last month was our top choice When they see us, the stubborn new drama mini series from Ava DuVernay, a powerful look at systemic racism in the US with a number of exceptional performances. Since its release earlier this month, the show has even become the most popular series Netflix has ever presented on the platform – in short, it's a must-watch.

Netflix has also welcomed the third and final season of Jessica Jones, the season of Dark (a German-language Netflix Original series), the third season of Stranger Things – which is perhaps the best so far – and the last season of Orange the New black.

And if you just can't get enough of Stranger Things star David Harbor, you'll be happy to hear that he has released a Netflix mockumentary called Frankenstein Monster Monster: Frankenstein. From the trailer (below) it looks like a funny parody, with great acting from Harbor.

Best Netflix Original series

Some of the best Netflix series that are worth watching are those from the streaming site itself – often with great results. A lot of money has been invested in creating original content, even if Netflix might become a little more picky about what it will fund in the future.

Although many of the Netflix Original shows were recorded fairly quickly in the garbage bin of viewing habits, these are certainly worth the effort.

When they see us

Created by Ava DuVernay for Netflix, this persistent drama follows the story of five teenagers – four African-American men and one Spanish – who were accused of attacking and raping a woman in New York in 1989. It is a complicated story that throws a light on systemic racism in the US.

Only a few weeks after the release, this show received a lot of media attention, as did many viewers. Netflix has revealed that it is actually the most popular series that has ever appeared on the platform so far. In other words, it's a must-watch.

Russian doll

Orange Is The New Black Natasha Lyonne shines in this dark comedy like Nadia, who continues to die and relive her 36th birthday in a surreal time loop – just like Groundhog Day.

With the cynical and witty investigation of living and dying, Russian Doll is quickly switching between laughable hilarity and devastating sadness – it's a must-watch. In June 2019, Netflix announced that it would renew the Russian Doll for a second season – more details will follow soon.

Maniac

A bizarre new science fiction series based on a Norwegian TV show with the same name. It is about Annie and Owen, played by Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, two troubled strangers who have been brought together during some strange pharmaceutical tests. Dr. James K. Mantleray claims that a new series of pills that he has made can solve all kinds of mental illnesses and heartache, but there is also something much deeper and more horrible going on.

Bojack Horseman

Yes, Bojack Horseman is hilarious. Yes, it is the best thing Will Arnett has done since the Arrest Development. And yes, it should be the next thing you look at if you like anthropomorphic comedy about a once great TV star that has been struggling. It is all that, but it is also a fairly accurate representation of depression and must be celebrated as such.

For those who are worried, it may be too dark for them, fear not – there is a lot of slapstick humor, word play and amazing animation to keep everything in balance.

The crown

Is The Crown Netflix the crown on the job? It could be like a lush look at one of ' the world's most famous families: the royal family. The show charted the early years of the relationship between the queen (Claire Foy) and Prince Philip (former Doctor Who Matt Smith) and was written by Peter Morgan and is one of the most expensive TV series ever made with £ 100 million. Which means there is enough splendor to keep those yearning for a replacement for Downton Abbey satisfied.

The second season is now on Netflix and is a nice improvement over the first series – it is also the last to play the current cast, with Olivia Coleman and Helena Bonham Carter scheduled to appear as the Queen and Princess Margaret respectively in the next pair on seasons.

Orange is the new black

Orange Is The New Black is back for its sixth season and is a show that is consistently one of the best to watch, with its great story about living in a women's prison.

It is so popular that it is now the most watched series on Netflix – although the makers have announced that the show's next season will be its last.

The show has returned for the seventh final season and things look rather bleak for the prisoners of Litchfield Penitentiary – as well as for those on the outside. While the comedy is still there, it is being smashed with quite a bit of drama and darkness.

The long-awaited second season of the GLOW female wrestling comedy is finally here. The Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling have returned and this time they have been commissioned for a full series of their messy, hot pink, hair-sprayed wrestling show led by their cut-up director (played by Marc Maron). The fantastic second season can even surpass the first because of its refreshing cast and writers with feminine front and the brilliant balance between empowerment and exploitation. It is a must-watch.

Keep your eyes open for the long-awaited third season, which should now land on Netflix every day.

Bad

Breaking Bad is watching TV and one of the reasons that Netflix has become so popular. Before Breaking Bad, Netflix was seen as a pretty decent streaming service. After being granted the rights to show the last season of Breaking Bad in the UK, Netflix pushed itself to superstar. Not bad for a show that is apparently about a high school cancer teacher who is going to sell meth to pay his hospital bills.

It goes without saying, if you haven't spent time with Walter White and Jesse – do it now! But be warned, the show is just as addictive as the stuff Walter is working on.

Sherlock

This contemporary BBC remake of the Arthur Conan Doyle classic is dark, funny and intricately written and has informed Victorian sleuth Sherlock Holmes for modern times.

With great performances from Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as respectively Holmes and Dr. Watson, this BBC adjustment is an absolute must-watch. Storylines full of intrigue and nail-biting tension are offset by moments of true humor, so even the frightened cats in the family will find something nice about this series.

The end of the F *** ing World

The End Of The F *** ing World has been taken from the comic book of the same name (min. De ***) and is brilliant. It tells the story of two teenagers traveling; both are fleeing, but one of them happens to be a bit of a psychopath. It's funny but brutal TV. It's British and co-funded by Channel 4 and there's a fantastic head start on everything in it – and it's perfectly bite-ready, even at just under 20 minutes per episode. It's so good, it's meant to get a second season. The first, however, ends so perfectly, it is actually a real shame that this will happen.

At first sight, Mad Men is about advertising execs – led by the always conflicting Don Draper – in the 1960s, but it is much more. Every episode lingers, it takes time to tell the story, but it is worth the wait. Fantastic television in which you can get caught.

Easy

All three Easy seasons are now available on Netflix. It is an American comedy set in Chicago, all about love, relationships and sex. There are some characters who turn up as protagonists, but sometimes they are background characters in other stories.

Sex education

This British comedy series sees socially awkward sixth ex-Otis (who lives with his mother of the sex therapist) collaborating with the smart and rebellious Maeve to create a sex clinic for the sexually frustrated students of the school.

It is as funny as it is sincere, and offers a frank and uncensored view of the sexuality of teenagers and the social swamp that education is in its sixth form.

Don't be put off by the Americanization of this high school comedy that apparently takes place in a seemingly picturesque British village – the temporary and physical ambiguity is what gives this fantastic series a part of its charm.

The good place

Comedy is now in a good place and, funnily enough, The Good Place is a perfect example of that. Starring Ted Danson and Kristen Bell, this off-the-wall comedy focuses on a recently deceased woman who is completely accidentally sent to a heavenly utopia called the Good Place. To stay there she does everything she can to hide what a terrible person she was when she lived.

Season 1 and 2 have already been broadcast in the UK via Netflix, with new season 3 episodes being added every week in line with their US release. The fourth season is expected to land later in 2019, which unfortunately will be the last.

A great cast, smart writing and an original concept make this a must-watch.

Peep Show

All nine seasons of Peep Show are now on Netflix – and if you have not seen the show, a treat awaits you. Mapping the rather everyday life of two roommates Jez (Robert Webb) and Mark (David Mitchell), the show is a wry view of adults trying to be adults and failing to be adults.

Everything shot in first person – hence the name – Peep Show does not deny sex, drugs and political inaccuracy, but it does it all in such a brilliant British way that you don't mind at all if you have some of the most uncomfortable TV moments, including one of the characters who serves a dead dog for dinner.

Don't ask, just watch.

It is always sunny in Philadelphia

Made initially with a shoe-string budget, It & apos; s Always Sunny in Philadelphia in the first season, a cult following, but low ratings meant it was destined to be a one-series miracle. Fortunately everything changed when Season 2 was finally illuminated green, thanks to an enormous star power. Danny De Vito participated in a 10-episode that was extended because he loved it so much.

He is still in the show, which is now in its 13th season, and brings huge ratings. The antics of Dennis (Glenn Howerton), Mac (Rob McElhenney, the creator of the show), Charlie (Charlie Kelly) and Sweet Dee (Kaitlin Olson) will not be suitable for everyone – in the dark the show & apos; s & apos; comedy & apos; themes range from Nazism to drug abuse – but stick to it and this wonderfully corrupt classic will reward you.

The 13th season has finally arrived on Netflix, and we are happy to say that it is just as funny as the previous 12.

Arrested development

Arrested Development is one of the best comedies ever made. It was therefore logical that Netflix would like to revive it for a fifth season. The fourth season was funny, but it wasn't perfect – especially since most casts were too busy to get into the same room.

But the first half-fifth season brings back some of that Bluth magic, which is full of jokes, jokes that run all seasons, and more, well, jokes, this is essential TV.

Weird stuff

When it comes to TV and movies, the ' 80 is the nostalgic decade of the moment. Or the Jeff Nichols & apos; Midnight Special that plays like a Steven Spielberg movie, if Spielberg still makes movies like in the 1980s, or The Goldbergs and Red Oaks that make up the decade to laugh, filmmakers can't get enough of the shell suits and Sony Walkmans .

Stranger Things is another brilliant tribute to this era. Heavily leaning on Spielberg, John Carpenter and Stephen King – so much King – the story revolves around a small town, a group of friends, a missing person and a dodgy science lab. Writing something else would give the countless twists and turns in a show full of brilliantly creepy fun.

The third season has just arrived on Netflix and it is probably the best so far, bringing everything we know and like to the show and adding even more creepy science, drama between the characters and a huge amount of nostalgia from the 80s .

Well, this series went to places that we never thought would happen. The show takes place before the exploits of the Starship Enterprise and is filled with Roddenberry characters. But while the original series had shades of light, this is a much darker view of space exploration. Sonequa Martin-Green is great as the first officer to have a past intrinsically linked to past Star Trek characters – we can't wait to see where this series is going.

Season 5 of Black Mirror is now out and, although we are sure we have said the same for the fourth season, this could be the darkest, most varied season of the show to date.

Before Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker was best known for his grim look at the news in Weekly Wipe and his fantastic, caustic look at & apos; meeja & apos; typing in Shoreditch in London.

Now the show has given him the status of superstar. It is not for nothing that it is a fantastic TV in which every episode deals with a different dystopia subject, usually framed by technology that lasts very long. The third season was commissioned by Netflix and is in 4K, with most episodes having a function length.

Rick and Morty

Rick and Morty have enjoyed an almost obsessive cult following since its release in 2013, and with three seasons on Netflix, there's a lot to catch up on if you haven't seen it yet.

The series follows the crazy interdimensional adventures of mad scientist Rick Sanchez and his timid grandson Morty, as they navigate through both the multiverse and the fraught family relationships.

Part of the maker's broad appeal is the masterful combination of the maker Dan Harmon with side-splitting humor with sometimes devastating emotional depth, meaning that Rick and Morty are a series that you probably can't stop looking at once you start.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

This much-praised Japanese anime has landed on Netflix, with all 26 episodes from the original series and two additional tie-in films, Death True and The End of Evangelion. Considering how difficult it has been in recent years to arrive, the anime coming to Netflix is ​​nothing less than a miracle.

Mapping a battle between giant human mechs (of course governed by high school students) and invading monsters known as Angels, this is an anime that spends as much time looking at the internal lives of its protagonists as the flashy action scenes in which they find themselves. Neon Genesis Evangelion is dark, raw and not afraid of emotional trauma and is a must-watch for every anime fan.

Queer Eye

Need a dose of feel-good TV to help cope with today's rocky political landscape? Check out Queer Eye, a show about being the best you with help from five of the coolest dudes on the planet. The show has just entered its third season and we're still loving the premise of taking people stuck in a rut and hoisting them to the self-respecting, self-loving person we all want to be. Werk.

Ultimate Beastmaster

If you were a fan of Takeshi's Castle back in the day, or more recently, Ninja Warrior, you're going to love Ultimate Beastmaster. The competition sees 2 contestants from six to nine countries take on 'The Beast', a ridiculously challenging obstacle course that only the fittest will be able to take on.

What sets this series apart from other obstacle course shows is that Netflix produces six localized versions, featuring "select television hosts, actors, comedians and athletes as commentators from the six countries competing in the show".
