Netflix has been very loyal to its subscribers when it comes to providing original content and fresh stories. The popular streaming site is known for offering an array of TV shows and films to its viewers. Over the years, Netflix has indeed raised the bar, when it comes to pushing original content.
After the huge success of "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black", Netflix continued to churn out a string of new hits like "Sense8", "Marvel's Daredevil" and the latest "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp".
Well, it looks like there's no turning back for the network as there are more originals expected in the coming months. Here's a list of a few shows that we think are going to be totally worth waiting for.
Narcos (28 August, 2015)
A crime drama written by Chris Brancato, "Narcos" will be a 10-part series, which will be a fictionalised take on the life of infamous drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. The King of Cocaine, Escobar is known to be the richest criminal in history. The show will focus on how he functioned and also highlight the law enforcement's efforts to stop him.
Marseille (late 2015)
With this show, Netflix is trying to reach viewers in non English-speaking countries. Marseille, an eight-episode series, tells the tale of power, corruption and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the French port city.
