Expect Shadow and Bone to find a higher ranking on our list come March 16. If creator Eric Heisserer is to be believed, the second season of this fantasy epic is going to be bigger and better than ever. "The Grishaverse also expands in this season, both in mythology and in characters," he said in a statement. "In doing so, we expand the world, we go to new locations, we visit Novyi Zem and Shu Han, and those are all integral to the narrative."
Creators: Sera Gamble, Greg Berlanti
Stars: Penn Badgley, Victoria Pedretti, Tati Gabrielle
Genre: Crime, drama, romance
Our score: 80.0
Things could have turned out very differently for You. The show actually debuted on Lifetime — and struggled to make any kind of an impact. It was then swiftly canceled after its first season... until Netflix's inspired decision to take things over. The first season of the show — which dropped at the end of 2018 — was a monster hit and has since spawned two further seasons. A fourth one is tantalizingly close, too: part one arrives on February 9, 2023. The second part will follow a month later.
Creators: Bill Dubuque, Mark Williams
Stars: Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Sofia Hublitz, Julia Garner
Genre: Crime, thriller
Our score: 80.3
Over the course of four seasons, Ozark has scored four Emmy wins. One went to star Jason Bateman — for directing the episode "Reparations" — and the other three are now in co-star Julia Garner's trophy cabinet. Garner won't get a chance to add to the show's haul, though, as the crime drama came to a gripping conclusion in 2022. Netflix might have regretted that when it saw that Ozark was the second-most-streamed original show of 2022 — behind only Stranger Things.
Creators: Chris Van Dusen
Stars: Nicola Coughlan, Luke Thompson, Jonathan Bailey
Genre: Historical romance
Our score: 80.8
Seasons one and two of Bridgerton are both nestled safely in the top ten most-watched English-language shows on Netflix. Each season amassed over 600 million hours of viewing in its first 28 days of release. So it should come as no surprise that not only is a third season of the show on the way, but there is also a spin-off coming soon. Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story is the title of the prequel series, and it could be the start of a brand new Bridgerton-verse!
