Even though the first season only has a mere number of seven episodes due to the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike, other seasons may convince you why it is regarded as one of the best television shows of all time.

Death Note

Death Note
IMDB Rating – 9/10


Though the anime fanbase and live-action fanbase rarely watch anything else than what they are fans of, Death Note doesn’t fall into the category. Whether you like anime or not, this show is still a gripping drama that will make you bite your nails until the scene ends.


The story follows Light Yagami, a young and intelligent student who finds a death note, a mysterious black notebook that can kill anyone if the user knows both the target’s name and face. The light uses this to kill many criminals, from petty to high-profile, to be a “savior” to innocents, until he is pursued by L, an enigmatic detective. The killer-detective trope effect is further enhanced by the supernatural concept of death and mortality.

Squid Game

Squid Game - 10 Best Suspense / Thriller TV Shows on Netflix
IMDB Rating – 8/10


Korean shows and movies have been becoming popular and have been dominating the film industry based on just their sheer talent. Movies like Train To Busan and Parasite have showcased that even with a small budget, you could overcome Hollywood quality.


Squid Game follows interconnected stories of many individuals who are in heavy debt and have decided to partake in a game called Squid Game, where participants play children’s games and the loser gets killed until the last one standing gets to make billions. Through its raw originality and simplicity, the Squid game decided to peel many layers of humanity, and how a game for money and turn a man into an animal and vice-versa.

Dark

Dark
IMDB Rating – 8.8/10


Though being called Strangers Things rip-off in the first few seasons, Dark has reiterated its positions as one of the shows that will be remembered in history for its complexity. Though many people make fun of the fact that they have to remember every person’s face (and their past, present, and future selves), if you have a good memory (like mine), you’ll get to realize just how much the creators put effort into the main story and sub-plots alike.


After the disappearance of a child in a German town, four families struggle as they unravel a sinister time-travel conspiracy spanning several generations. Though the first few episodes (five, to be precise) may make it seem like a Stranger Things rip-off, if you bear it till there, you will see a show standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Game Of Thrones.

Narcos

Narcos - 10 Best Suspense / Thriller TV Shows on Netflix
IMDB Rating – 8.8/10


Though docudramas can be equivalent to watching paint dry, Narcos is no such thing. In fact, it mixes Indian masala with facts to make it one of the most gripping shows of this century.


Set in Colombia, the story follows drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, who became a billionaire through the production and distribution of cocaine, and his interactions with drug lords, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents, and various opposition entities.

Stranger Things

Stranger Things - 10 Best Suspense / Thriller TV Shows on Netflix
IMDB Rating – 8.7/10

Stranger Things has become a pop culture among the youth of this generation. Based on the American 80’s culture, Stranger Things is a satire that reflects on the many faces of human beings with a sweet mix of supernatural and science-fiction.

Stranger Things is set in the fictional rural town of Hawkins, Indiana, during the early 1980s. It focuses on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy (Will Byers) amid supernatural events occurring around the town, including the appearance of a girl with psychokinetic abilities, Eleven (Millie Bobbie Brown of Elona Holmes’ fame).

Sacred Games

Sacred Games - 10 Best Suspense / Thriller TV Shows on Netflix
IMDB Rating – 8.6/10

Being the only one on this list to be Indian, Sacred Games is genuinely one of the shows that can rival best of the Hollywood. Being the first Indian Netflix original show, Sacred games features an insane performance (including the famous Ganesh Gaitonde from Nawazuddin Siddiqui) and a tight and gripping narrative.

Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) is a cop who is troubled by the corruption in Mumbai Police. After he is told by Ganesh Gaitonde, a notorious crime lord, to save the city in 25 days, Sartaj goes on a quest to uncover the dark and edgy past of the criminal underworld and Gaitonde himself. Through its continuous use of expletives and some mature scenes make it hard to watch the show with family, it’s still good for binge-watching it alone, nonetheless.

Love, Death + Robots

Love, Death + Robots - 10 Best Suspense / Thriller TV Shows on Netflix
IMDB Rating – 8.5/10

Love, Death + Robots is a reimagining of the 1981 sci-fi cult classic, Heavy Metal, by Tim Miller (Deadpool, Terminator: Dark Fate) and David Fincher (Fight Club, Seven). It is an anthology of animated shorts that tell tonally-different stories with a bucket load of gratuitous nudity and gore.

The animations are quite different in every episode, from real-life CGI to straight-out cartoonish. The stories are themselves wacky, ranging from a yogurt taking over the world to Hitler dying in 6 hilarious ways. Though you may not like every story from the 18 episodes, the fact that every episode only ranges from 6-18 minutes makes it easier to binge-watch its whole first season. Though the second season is like a deflated balloon being sucked out of all its awesomeness we all love, season 1 alone may it make it worth our while for 2-3 hours.

Daredevil

Daredevil - 10 Best Suspense / Thriller TV Shows on Netflix
IMDB Rating – 8.6/10

And concluding the list of 10 Best Suspense Thriller TV Shows on Netflix with Daredevil, When Daredevil premiered in 2015 on Netflix, fans were blown away by how cinematic it was. While the Marvel shows on cable TV were more of filler-filled weekly basis-based sitcoms with cheesy acting and cringe storylines, Daredevil was a cinematic approach to Marvel comics the fans deserved after the film adaptation disaster it originally got.

Set in Hell’s Kitchen, the story follows Matthew Murdock, a lawyer-by-day and vigilante-by-night, as he navigates past the criminal scum in the New York neighborhood and crosses paths with iconic villains like Wilson Fisk and the Punisher. Vincent D’Onofrio and Charlie Cox’s performances as Wilson Fisk and Daredevil respectively make it worth a watch for sure.
