Best Netflix shows to watch
To help you find what to watch on Netflix, we picked the best Netflix shows to watch and skip right now. We’ve been updating the list of shows to watch and skip all year long, and now that we’re in the middle of the year, there are so many new Netflix shows to talk about.
Despite production challenges from the pandemic, it’s been an incredible past couple of years for Netflix shows. So many good Netflix shows have been released in 2022, and there’s still even more on the way through the end of the year.
Last year was a great year for new and returning Netflix shows, and the winning streak has continued with the list of 2022’s best shows growing and getting better and better by the week. Lucky for you, we have a bunch of good Netflix shows to watch right now. And to save you the hassle, we also recommend a few shows you should probably avoid.
If you’re looking for what to watch on Netflix, this is the list for you.
Month after month, we’re met with an overwhelming amount of Netflix original series, new releases and even more recommendations on what to watch. But which Netflix shows should you definitely add to your watch list and which could you live to skip? We have your back.
Let’s get the list started with one of the biggest fan-favorite shows on Netflix, The Lincoln Lawyer!
Netflix shows: The Lincoln Lawyer
Created By: David E. Kelley
Starring: Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, Jazz Raycole, Angus Sampson, Christopher Gorham
If we were giving out an award for the best new Netflix show of 2022 (and we will later this year), we would probably give it to The Lincoln Lawyer — and we’re only halfway through the year. The series, which is based on the books by Michael Connelly, was also a huge hit.
Besides being based on the same character from the same series of books, Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer has no connection to the movie of the same name starring Matthew McConaughey. In fact, it’s not based on the titular book, instead adapting The Brass Verdict.
Mickey Haller, played by Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, gets back to work after a year away and takes on perhaps the most challenging murder case of his career. From beginning to end, The Lincoln Lawyer keeps you guessing and wondering who actually did it and why.
Thankfully, Netflix renewed The Lincoln Lawyer for a second season and the series will continue, this time adapting a different book in the series. And given how much of a must-watch this show is, there will be many, many more seasons to come in the future.
