After what seemed like an endless wait, Netflix has just announced that Ozark will return in March, so if you haven’t seen the popular crime series yet, you have plenty of time to catch up on the first two seasons. It’s a lively drama about an ordinary man (played by an actor traditionally known for comedy) forced into crime and brutality by difficult circumstances – so is it any wonder that he is often compared to Breaking Bad?

When they see us
Ava DuVernay’s heartbreaking, revisiting of the true story of Central Park Five, which saw five black and Hispanic teenagers wrongly convicted of a rape that took place in New York City in 1989. Through four episodes, it comes from the procedural police and a drama in court before launching into a harrowing finale that delves into the consequences of the sentence on a particularly unfortunate member of the gang.

The eight-part Netflix series follows Nadia from New York who smokes a chain, as she makes her way through a mysterious time cycle that sees her celebrate her 36th birthday and then die. Again and again and again. Created by Leslye Headland, Natasha Lyonne and Amy Poehler, this is not a makeover for Groundhog Day. With a New Yorker all her own and a high performance, she is incredibly satisfying. Watch on Netflix
This dramatic crime drama is an angry look at the police errors that have facilitated a serial rapist, with brilliant performances by Toni Collette, Merritt Wever and Kaitlyn Dever. Watch on Netflix
The good place
The high-concept NBC philosi-sit sitcom cannot be discussed enough: it has created a new model that hasn’t been seen on a network sitcom since Seinfeld changed the game in the 1990s. The series follows the lives of four individuals who have landed in a kind of secular after-life, except one of them (Kristen Bell’s Eleanor Shellstrop) is there by mistake. A series of twists and turns during the first season prelude to a huge upheaval in the second season, which constantly leaves the audience wondering where the hell he can go next. The third season somehow repeats the feat, brilliantly. Watch on Netflix
Don’t waste time with cats: hunt for an Internet killer
In 2010, a horrible online video of an anonymous man suffocating two kittens went viral, after which a gang of amateur criminals promised to work together to track down the perpetrator. This is the starting point for a constantly surprising and disturbing three-part documentary. If it were a fiction, you would consider it too implausible, but it is a fact. Watch on Netflix
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Netflix’s reboot of the 90s comedy Sabrina the Teenage Witch, reinvented as a dark tale of maturity starring Kiernan Shipka as the half-witch and half-mortal. Watch on Netflix
It started out as a Channel 4 shot in the dark, but Charlie Brooker’s drama quickly became one of the most grimly thrilling TV shows. So Netflix intervened, because clearly a dystopian vision of the future in which technology has taken control of our lives is the right thing to show in a service specially designed to make you look at the screen for hours and hours …
Season 5 features some of his most ambitious and compelling tales to date. Three new stories were launched in June 2019, with brilliant shows by Andrew Scott, Miley Cyrus and Anthony Mackie. Watch on Netflix
