When you think of Netflix, you probably think of some of the all-time classics that are available to stream on the platform, or its originals that have made a name for themselves among audiences.

Stranger Things, Squid Game, Sex Education, The Crown, Arcane – all of these and many more shows are familiar to everyone.

But what if you've seen everything there is to see? What if it feels like there's nothing left for you to enjoy?

Well, you're in luck, because today we're going to show you 5 Netflix series that are hidden so deep in the service's data core that you won't be able to find them yourself.


This Norwegian series has nothing to do with the famous Marvel superhero. It actually focuses on exploring Norse mythology in a new, modernized way, but still close to its own culture.

There are two seasons left, and the third and final one is already in production, so you can tune in to the show today to not miss its release.


This is a Brazilian dystopian thriller series with 4 seasons of 7 to 10 episodes each.

If you are looking for something more lighthearted and funny, Rita might be the best choice for you.

You won't be able to use it as a background show because you'll have to focus on the subtitles, but it's the story of a headstrong and unconventional teacher and single mom who faces whatever problems life throws at her with a stiff upper lip and an open mind.


An international period drama, created by British writers for France and Canada, tells the story of the young King Louis XIV, who decides to move the court to his father's former hunting lodge near the hamlet of Versailles.

Instead of the submission he hoped for, the French nobles become as dangerous as ever, involved in all kinds of intrigue.

Alias Grace
