Since 2015’s Beasts of No Nation, Netflix has made a name for itself in original drama, boasting multiple nominees in the Best Picture category at the Academy Awards each of the past few years. Drama is one of Netflix’s best categories due in part to the quality of those originals, but the streaming service is also a home for excellent dramatic offerings from other studios. It’s a crowded collection, however, and you don’t want to experience any drama in your own life while searching for something to watch. To save you some time and effort, we’ve pulled together a list of the best dramas on Netflix right now.
