With our busy schedules and hectic lifestyles, many of us love to switch on Netflix and chill out from time to time. If you are wondering which of your favourite TV shows are returning or what new shows you can start to watch in the coming months, you’ve come to the right place! Here are the five best Netflix shows you can catch for the rest of 2018.
Netflix’s first Indian original series Sacred Games will be set amid the chaos of Mumbai and it explores the corrupt underworld in the country. Based on the novel by Vikram Chandra, Sacred Games will star Bollywood’s famous Saif Ali Khan and is directed by Anurag Kashyap. The show is set for release on July 6.
Orange Is the New Black
The sixth season of Netflix’s original show is returning on July 27. The last time we saw Piper, Alex, Red, and company, they were trapped in a room awaiting their fate at the hands of the incoming guards, and the new show will pick up where this ends. From a new actress to new drama, season 6 of Orange Is The New Black promises another binge-worthy season!
For those Netflix viewers who like a dose of sci-fi, drama, and romance on their binge-platters, this show is for you. Centring on runaway teenagers who are derailed by their supernatural powers, The Innocents starred Sorcha Groundsell and Percelle Ascott and will debut on August 24.
The Umbrella Academy
The adaptation of the comic book series by Gerard Way, The Umbrella Academy is set to premiere in the coming months. The new show tells the story of a dysfunctional family of superheroes as they solve their father’s mysterious death. Ellen Page is set to play in the lead role as Vanya Hargreeves along with singer and actress Mary J. Blige as Cha Cha and Kate Walsh as The Handler. Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of the show.
It’s always fun to see big stars on the small screen. Based on a Norwegian TV series, Maniac is a dark comedy that stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill and follows an institutionalised man who lives a fantasy life in his dreams. Expected to debut later this year, the show is supported by The Leftover’s Justin Theroux and two-time Oscar-winner Sally Field.
