If you thought you had seen it all, think again.

One of the best things about Netflix is that the content never ends. Not only does the streamer constantly produce new TV shows and movies to keep viewers entertained, but its content rotation system gives subscribers access to more previously released material every month.

As a result, it's unlikely that anyone will ever run out of things to watch on Netflix. If you can't think of anything you'd like to watch, maybe it's time to take a step back into the previous decade and rummage through some of the best shows of the 2010s that don't get nearly enough love and appreciation.

Maniac (2018)

Starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, this show is not for those who enjoy straightforward stories. Set in the universe where two strangers bond over their participation in a risky and intense pharmaceutical trial conducted by Neberdine Pharmaceutical Biotech (NPB), this miniseries will blow your mind, but in the best way possible.

Safe (2018)

This mystery show follows the disappearance of a teenage girl, Jenny, and her boyfriend. Though they weren't on the best of terms at the time, her father puts everything he has into finding her, but instead uncovers a lot of ugly truths about their new neighborhood and the people close to them.

Crashing (2016)

Consisting of six 30-minute episodes and written by Phoebe Waller-Bridge in her pre-Fleabag days, Crashing is the perfect binge-worthy comedy. The show follows 6 young people who become caretakers of a house and have to live together, facing the trivial problems of life side by side.

iZombie (2015-2019)

This show is a clever mix of a zombie series and a procedural crime drama. The main character, Liv, is an unfortunate victim of a zombie attack. However, she has no interest in killing people. Instead, she helps solve murder cases by eating the brains of the dead and gaining access to their memories.

Bloodline (2015-2017)

Although the show was very popular when it was first released, the love for it faded very quickly. However, the story of a family dealing with the return of their black sheep deserves your attention. First of all, it is very relatable, and secondly, the Emmy-winning performance of Ben Mendelsohn will not leave anyone indifferent.

Black Earth Rising (2018)

Diving deep into the issues of identity and self-esteem, this show tells the story of Kate Ashby, raised in Britain by her adoptive mother, Eve, but born in Rwanda and rescued from the genocide as a young child. Following in her mother's footsteps and entering the world of politics and law, Kate's life is thrown into a dangerous game of elites.

Santa Clarita Diet (2017-2019)

We all know that the scariest stories are always hidden deep in the suburbs, right? A couple of real estate agents in Santa Clarita, Joel and Sheila, led a very quiet life, raising their daughter and facing everyday struggles together. But Sheila's sudden transformation has turned their lives into a bloody mess.

Sick Note (2017-2018)

Normally, a cancer diagnosis ruins a person's life. But for Daniel, stuck in an unhappy marriage and a dead-end job, it only makes things better. He's finally surrounded by the love and attention he always thought he deserved, but then he finds out his diagnosis was a mistake. Now he has to come clean with everyone... or does he?

Travelers (2016-2018)

Despite flying under the radar of most viewers, Travelers is a great example of a sci-fi series set in a dystopian future that many viewers tend to love. The journey of a few operatives who send their consciousness back in time to make things better for the future is compelling enough to make you binge the show in a matter of days.

Secret City (2016-2019)

Led by Anna Torv as political journalist Harriet Dunkley, the show focuses on a conspiracy group that leads an entire secret life beneath the peaceful and nice facade of a city called Canberra. Driven by her thirst for truth, Harriet embarks on a journey that is far more dangerous than she could ever imagine.

The Letdown (2016-2019)

Being a new mom is never easy and often makes a woman feel like a big disappointment. This sitcom, which follows Aubrey and her journey through the new mom support group, is a perfect reminder that you are not alone in your struggle and that parenthood is never easy for anyone, but the joy is worth it.

Queen of the South (2016-2021)

We all know that wealth doesn't solve all your problems, but Queen of the South shatters the myth that love does. Forced to flee Mexico after the murder of her boyfriend, the head of the drug cartel, Teresa starts a new life in America. But in order to survive, she enters the dangerous business herself and eventually becomes successful.

Frontier (2016)

You might think that a show about trading furs cannot be too exciting or dynamic to watch, but you would be wrong. Starring Jason Momoa as Declan Harp, a dedicated trader, the show follows the challenge of breaking the monopoly in 1700's Canada and all the criminal elements that often go hand in hand with honest business.

Crazyhead (2016)

If you ever thought that seeing demons was more of a torture than a gift, you will relate to this dark comedy. Two best friends, Amy and Raquel, have bonded over their experiences with the supernatural, and now the two of them are on a tough mission to end the demonic threat once and for all.

What/If (2019)

Not to be confused with Marvel's project of the same name, this Renée Zellweger show is a mind-bending thriller that will make everyone question their own morals and the consequences of their choices as they follow the journey of a young couple who agree to a questionable exchange, setting in motion a whole chain of events.
