By Renée Ardon-Coppinger

Here at Urban List, we all know the hunt for the next Netflix binge never ends. To make decision paralysis a little easier, we've rounded up a slew of the best shows on Netflix Australia right now.

Whether you're keen to kick back and soak up some reality TV, delve into a juicy true crime series or simply re-watch your favourite comedy, there really is an endless supply of stellar shows to watch on Netflix Australia. And we are absolutely here for it.

Grab the snacks and get comfy, here are the best shows on Netflix Australia to binge this month.

Bridgerton (Season 3)

Unsurprisingly, everyone is absolutely losing their minds over the latest season of Bridgerton dropping this week and it'll only take you a few minutes of viewing to see why. A little less steamy but the chemistry is still 200% off the charts with plenty of royal drama to boot in between. Watch out for the carriage scene, we have notes.

Ashley Madison: Sex, Lies And Scandal

This three-part docuseries explores the outrageous data hack of dating affair site Ashley Madison, where over 37 million people's personal details were leaked onto the dark web. Unsurprisingly causing absolute anarchy, delve into the lives of some of the couples and families affected, as well as checking out the big bosses whose biz was decimated over night. Short, snappy and salacious, there's nothing like a spy into the messed up minds of people that co-exist in our world.

Bodkin

When a sassy rage-filled investigator and overly-optimistic podcaster (and his doting side kick) come together, chaos ensues in Bodkin. Freshly dropped this month, this dark comedy drama set in a quaint humble Irish town looks to unlock an unsolved mystery around a strange disappearance of locals years before. Although light-hearted, we found ourselves quickly immersed in following links to solve the mystery Sherlock Holmes style. 

Buying London

We *love* a perve into luxe real estate, and so Buying London is the newest sneaky look into some of the world's most OTT insane properties. Check out the penthouses and ridiculously opulent castles of the world's elite, while also of course jumping into the juicy drama of luxury estate agency DDRE Global. Although it follows the same archetype as all the property shows, there's still something delicious about a binge after a hard day at work. 

A Man In Full

There's something about the fall of the big baller that we love to see, especially when Jeff Daniels (The Newsroom, American Rust, Dumb and Dumber) is the baddie. When Atlanta real estate king Charlie Croker suddenly finds himself in bankruptcy, underground political interests collide creating a heart-thumping limited series we've thrown straight to the top of our binge list. From writer David E. Kelley and directed by Hollywood queen Regina King, this new release is giving Succession vibes for sure.

The Roast Of Tom Brady

You've probably seen snippets plastered all across your socials already. Hosted by Kevin Hart, this star-studded line up sees plenty of offensive one-liners and full contact comedy taking a swing at the life and times of NFL legend, Tom Brady. It's raunchy, irreverant and an easy weekend watch that won't require all of your brain power after a long hard week.

Baby Reindeer

If your group chats have completely been taken over by Baby Reindeer chat, rest easy that you're not alone. This complex and somewhat controversial new release follows a seemingly sweet, struggling comedian as he shows an act of kindness to a vulnerable woman, sparkling a suffocating obsession which threatens to wreak havoc on both their lives. Raising big questions around stalking and consent, it gets dark real quick, so make sure you're in the mood.

Together: Treble Winners

It feels like every sports team is hopping on the Netflix doco bandwagon lately, but Together: Treble Winners is a short, snappy six part docuseries that's grabbed our attention this week. Following the tale of Mancester City's record-breaking 2022/2023 season, you're sure to jump on the Man City bandwagon as you fall in love with the players of this boisterous but charming team.

3 Body Problem

You're not alone if your feeds are full of 3 Body Problem posts—it seems we can't escape it. Created by some of the brilliant minds behind Game of Thrones, this thriller redefines sci-fi drama with its genre-bending mysteries and high stakes scenes that will leave you gasping. Based on an international bestselling trilogy, the series tracks a young woman's fateful decision that reverberates through both space and time. Sounds complicated right? Sure, but definitely worth a watch.
 

Griselda

Racy, gritty and super fast-paced, Griselda showcases beloved Modern Family star Sofia Vegara like you've never seen her before. Inspired by true events, this six part limited series delves into the dirty underbelly of Griselda Blanco's plight from the streets of Medellín to rolling the high life in Miami as the so-called 'Godmother' of the drug scene.You'll need to put your phone down and pay attention to keep up with this one.

The Gentlemen

Hitting Aussie screens March 7, White Lotus' bad boy Theo James leads an all-star cast in this dark, sexy new series from Guy Ritchie. When British aristocratic Eddie inherits his family escape, he discovers the dark drug-fuelled secrets hidden behind. Brimming with drama, suspense and a ton of charm, we've got a feeling everyone will be jumping on this bandwagon.

Young Royals: Season 3

In its third and final season, this highly anticipated next installment is premiering on March 11, promising more sexual tension and drama than ever before. The Swedish coming-of-age romantic drama series follows the privileged students of Hillerska boarding school trying to navigate their relationships, sexual identities and deepest urges. We suggest heading back to the start so you can really take it all in.

Girls5Eva: Season 3

For those in need of some light-hearted feel good bops, Girls5Eva's got your back. From Busy Philipps to Sara Bareilles, Ashley Park and a ton of other famous faces, check back in with these queens as they kick off their Returnity Tour navigating their way into those bright lights of stardom. Season 3 is screening from March 14.

Can I Tell You A Secret?

This new limited British true crime docuseries is haunting in all sorts of ways. Following real-life victims Jade Hallam, Abby Furness and Lia Marie Hambly, we experience the unfolding of the traumatic stalking and online abuse they suffered by Hardy, a preditor eventually sentenced to jail in the UK after years of tormenting vulnerable women. 

Somebody Feed Phil

A guaranteed dopamine fix for your eye balls.

One Day

If you swooned over Leo Woodall in the latest season of White Lotus, prepare to fall in love all over again with Netflix's latest limited series, One Day. Spanning across the lives of Dex and Em after their chance meeting at their graduation night in 1988, each episode follows another year in their journey of love, heartbreak and missed connections. Based on the beloved novel from David Nicholls,  keep the tissues handy for this one.

Boy Swallows Universe

It's been a long time since we first caught word that Trent Dalton's famed Boy Swallows Universe was being transformed into a series for Netflix. While the wait has been long, Netflix has finally dropped the show and it's definitely been worth it.

An epic coming-of-age story set in 1980s Brisbane, Eli Bell is just trying to understand what it means to become a good man, but the adult world serves up many a brutal reality. This one also stars a few familiar faces including Simon Baker, Anthony LaPaglia, Travis Fimmel and Phoebe Tonkin. 

Bridgerton

From the dazzling world of Shondaland and under the fresh guidance of showrunner Jess Brownell, Bridgerton is making a bold return for its third season. This time around, the spotlight is on Penelope Featherington (played by the brilliant Nicola Coughlan), who's finally kicked her long-standing crush on Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) to the curb. Why, you ask? Well, after catching wind of Colin's less-than-flattering remarks about her in the previous season, Penelope's had enough.

Now, Penelope's got her sights set on a new quest—landing herself a husband. Not just any husband, though. She's on the lookout for someone who'll let her maintain her secret life as the mysterious Lady Whistledown, far away from the prying eyes of her mother and sisters. But here's the catch: Penelope's confidence is on shaky ground, and her attempts in the marriage market are anything but smooth. As to when we can expect season three to drop, Netflix has announced it will be split into two four-episode parts, with part one premiering on May 16, 2024, followed by part two on June 13, 2024. 

The Crown

Season six of The Crown is here so settle in. This controversial iteration of episodes is all about the relationship between Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed before a horrendous car crash.

Sex Education

Following the closure of Moordale Secondary, Otis and Eric now face a new frontier, their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College. Otis is nervous about setting up his new clinic, while Eric is praying they won’t be 'losers' again. But Cavendish is a culture shock for all the Moordale students. There’s daily yoga in the communal garden, a strong sustainability vibe and a group of kids who are popular for being… kind. 

Love Is Blind

The fifth season of the cultural hit reality series returns with a new group of Houston singles ready to hit the pods and find love. In the most shocking season yet, the singles face new challenges, unexpected twists, and surprising turns that will test their personal resolve, and the strength of their connections, more than ever before.

Season six kicks off at Norfolk Prison where Michael is released and obviously, wants some hardcore revenge on ol’ TShelby. We’re also due to see whether Lizzie and Tommy and stick it out after last season’s scandalous reveal. 

Love, Death & Robots

In our eyes, Love Death & Robots is quite possibly one of the best TV series around. If you’ve been watching since season one, you’ll know exactly why. If you’ve enver been into animation, LDR is the one show that will change your mind. This gem brings us a compilation of animated short stories, spanning across multiple genres such as, fantasy, fiction, horror and comedy. Each episode was produced with the intention of being easy to watch, but hard to forget and range from five to 17-minute stories. 

Heartstopper

While most high school series these days delve into sex and drugs (and rock 'n' roll?), Heartstopper is a new-age show bound to bring some heartwarming scenes to weekend Netflix binge. The show, an adaptation of Alice Oseman's webcomic and graphic novel of the same name, spans eight episodes whereby teenagers Charlie and Nick discover their unlikely friendship might be something a little bit more as they navigate their way through the cesspit of high school drama and young love.

This season finds Nadia and Alan delving deeper into their pasts through an unexpected time portal located in one of Manhattan’s most notorious locations.

Featuring an all-star voice cast— including Nick Kroll, Maya Rudolph and David Thewlis reprising their Big Mouth roles. 

Pieces Of Her

The last time we saw Toni Collete grace our screens in a Netflix series was when Unbelievable dropped and we all lost our collective marbles. It was great, no? So it goes without saying her next show, Pieces Of Her, is an unmissable piece of content you need in your life.

In a sleepy Georgia town, a random act of violence sets off an unexpected chain of events for 30-year-old Andy Oliver and her mother Laura. Desperate for answers, Andy embarks on a dangerous journey across America, drawing her towards the dark, hidden heart of her family.

All Of Us Are Dead

We hate to make parallels to Squid Game but let's just say All Of Us Are Dead is the new K-series that will fill that void. A group of students trapped in a high school find themselves in dire situations as they seek to be rescued from a zombie invasion of their school. It’s heinous, it’s messy and it’s damn amazing.

This series is, unsurprisingly, about a house and the three wacky tales of the individuals that made it their home. The stop-motion anthology has been making big headlines so make sure you don’t miss out and watch it here.​

Cheer

It feels like an eternity since we first set our sights on the nationally-ranked Navarro College Bulldogs Cheer Team from Corsicana, Texas. The docuseries was an Emmy-winning breakout sensation and our non-athletic souls were privy to learning all things mat talk, the difference between spotters and flyers and every intricate detail of the cheer-lebrity world.

Now, season two is here (January 12) and this time there’s buzz around Navarro’s newfound stardom that threatens to alter the dynamic of the cheer team, COVID-19 upends the 2020 cheer season and a serious criminal accusation is levied at one of the teammates. Against that dramatic backdrop, the new nine-episode season expands to showcase Navarro’s fiercest rival as well—Trinity Valley Community College. 

Lost In Space

In the third and final season of Lost in Space, the stakes are higher than ever and the Robinson family's survival instincts will be put to the ultimate test.

A group of his followers with blind faith, the Arrowhead, take into their own hands the punishment of those who go against the divine will. 

Narcos: Mexico

Set in the 90s, when the globalization of the drug business ignites, Season three examines the war that breaks out after Felix’s arrest. As newly independent cartels struggle to survive political upheaval and escalating violence, a new generation of Mexican kingpins emerge.
