Netflix’s library of original content has grown exponentially since it released its first big show, “House of Cards,” in 2013.
Over the years, it has proved to be a hotbed for original drama programming, with shows like “Stranger Things” and “13 Reasons Why” becoming cultural sensations.
With so many drama series on the service, however, it can be hard to keep up with which shows are worth watching.
To create a cheat sheet for you, we turned to review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes to rank all of Netflix’s original drama series by their composite critical ratings. The shows had to have at least one season designated “Fresh” or “Rotten,” to ensure they had a high enough number of reviews.
We excluded shows that were continuations from other networks, like Channel 4’s “Black Mirror,” and we used audience scores to break any ties.
Here are Netflix’s 34 original drama shows, ranked by their Rotten Tomatoes critic score from lowest to highest:
“Iron Fist” — 18%
