As the so-called ‘streaming wars’ are now being fought on multiple fronts, it’s fair to say that viewers are the real winners here, with tons to watch whether it be on Netflix, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime, Hulu, you name it. And with each service updating their content on a weekly/monthly basis, you can never really run out of stuff to dig into.

But now, with most countries around the globe enforcing drastic measures to fight against the Coronavirus – self-isolation, social distancing, etc. – all the notable streaming services are seeing a massive influx of viewers. When it comes to TV shows in particular, though – and probably movies, too, to be honest – Netflix still reigns supreme, as the platform is home to some of the best modern and even classic television.

And with people now looking for new shows to binge more than ever due to all the self-quarantining going on, the folks over at What’s On Netflix have put together the below list of the best longe binge shows on the streaming site. Some are a bit old, some you’ve no doubt gone through countless times already and some are still on the air. But what’s most important here is that there should be something for everyone and we highly recommend each and every one of these if you’ve never seen them.
