Netflix's selection of top-tier crime shows has something for everyone, from Breaking Bad to Money Heist, and Peaky Blinders.

Be it crime thriller, capers, or even action-comedy, Netflix has some must-watch crime shows that will help viewers explore parts of the genre they may have never encountered before.. Updated on May 25, 2022, by Rhenn Taguiam: With Ozark having recently ended its four-season stint last April 2022, fans of the acclaimed crime drama might be interested in getting to know other crime shows on Netflix to match the same level of suspense as the Byrde’s lives in the recently-concluded Ozark.. Just which of these crime shows on Netflix are worthy of an Ozark fan’s fancy?. In Ozark , financial advisor Marty Byrde tries to game the system by becoming a money launderer for the Mexican drug cartel.. However, a transaction gone wrong forces Byrde to make ends meet by proposing a crazier idea to his Mexican friends: set up an even bigger, more illegal laundering operation in Lake of the Ozarks, in Missouri.. However, its narrative was a unique take on criminal dramas, particularly for its setting.. Despite ending almost a decade ago, Breaking Bad cemented a place in the hearts of viewers with its stellar writing and unique plot points, with the story exploring the lives of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman..

From Narcos to Jessica Jones, these action series are the best to stream on Netflix right now.

Updated March 29th, 2020 by George Chrysostomou There's no better time to binge some of these classic action shows on Netflix and we've therefore revisited this list to highlight even more great series that fans of the genre need to check out!. There's never been a series of fist fights put to TV quite as gritty as those throughout the show and there's very few period dramas that manage to combine both historical intrigue and a lot of action set pieces.. While many Netflix action shows aim for an edgier and grittier narrative, this series based on the successful graphic novel aims to capture the heart and spirit of the source material.. With talking chimps, crazy explosions, time travel, superhero action and huge scenes of spectacle, so many different genre styles are encompassed in this show that any action fan needs to check out these student's journey.. The first fantasy show on this list is still very much a recent release for many action fans, yet the mythical fights between the monster hunter and the magical creatures which he slays, have managed to stand out against many of the other action shows on Netflix.
