In 2017, Netflix looked back on “A Year in Bingeing” with an infographic that showcased the Netflix original series subscribers devoured throughout the year.

According to the release, Netflix members watched more than 140 million hours of shows, movies, and documentaries per day in 2017. The most popular shows that people devoured (watched for more than two hours a day) in 2017 included “Riverdale,” “The OA,” “American Vandal,” and “The Keepers,” among others.

But 2018 has brought new series and new seasons of fan favorites, which means plenty of new opportunities to bang out 10 episodes in a weekend.

From true crime to feel-good makeovers, to sci-fi hits like “Stranger Things,” here are 9 Netflix original series worth binge-watching.

“Aggretsuko”

Don’t let her appearance as a cute red panda and Sanrio anime character fool you. By day, Retsuko is a 25-year-old who works in the accounting department of a trading firm in Tokyo and is often frustrated with the demands of her job. By night, she screams her heart out to death metal karaoke.

This animated original series is one of Netflix’s hidden gems. It has already been renewed for a second season in 2019, so don’t feel guilty about binge-watching every 15-minute episode.

“Black Mirror”

Created by screenwriter and producer Charlie Brooker and picked up by Netflix for seasons three and four after originally airing its first two seasons on UK’s Channel 4, “Black Mirror” is an anthology series that explores the complicated effects of technology on modern society.

It’s number six on Netflix’s list of the shows that had people cheating in 2017 — cheating that is, in watching it ahead of their significant others.

Netflix, which has renewed “Black Mirror” for a fifth season, will announce a premiere date and episode count in late 2018. The original series also received three Emmy Nominations in 2018 with “Black Mirror: USS Callister” nominated for best television movie, Jesse Plemons for the episode “USS Callister” as lead actor in a limited series or movie, and actress Letitia Wright for the episode “Black Museum” as supporting actress in a limited series or movie.

“Girlboss”

“Girlboss” received its share of criticism and was canceled after one season.

The half-hour series, which is billed as a “loose” retelling of Sophia Amoruso’s rise to fashion-flipping fame as the founder of clothing line Nasty Gal, but it does get some of the details right before she launched her eBay store.

Britt Robertson (portraying Amoruso) also brings grit and determination to her performance, making the character an edgy one to watch. If you’ve got an entrepreneurial spirit and want a series with low commitment (read: one season only), ignore the critics and start watching this one.
