Netflix original series
Netflix original series are television shows or movies that are created and distributed exclusively on Netflix for their many subscribers. Netflix's first original series was House of Cards, which premiered back in 2013. The drama series would go on to win 27 major awards after being nominated 223 times. Its success gave Netflix the confidence it needed to create many more original series like Sex Education, Queen's Gambit, Russian Doll, Black Mirror, Peaky Blinders, BoJack Horseman, Stranger Things, Master of None, Haunting of Hill House, American Vandal, and Making a Murderer.
Since House of Cards, there have been numerous award-winning Netflix series, including comedy-drama shows, animated series, sci-fi series, and even true story crime documentaries.
