Here are 5 TV shows to binge-watch to keep you entertained during the lockdown in this new year:


1. The Undoing 

If you like a good thriller that would keep you on the edge of your seat, look no further. The Undoing is an amazing psychological thriller that is based on Jean Hanff Korelitz’ 2014 novel – You Should Have Known.

The story is full of twists and turns that make sure you remain hooked onto the show till the very end!


2. Bridgerton

3. The Queen’s Gambit 

This is one of the most popular series on Netflix currently. It is about the life of a young orphan girl who mastered the game of chess at a young age and aims to become one of the greatest chess players of all time.

We’ve all watched Karate Kid when we were younger and this series is a spin-off of the movie. It is an American comedy-drama that continues the storyline 30 years after the events of the film and is sure to bring all the nostalgia back!
