Netflix US: The Top 5 series for 2015 that you can't miss!

As the world’s most famous streaming service, Netflix constantly sets itself higher ground and achievements to beat. After becoming available in over 100 territories, Australia can finally rejoice in the knowledge that in the coming months, the platform will launch in this neck of the woods.

Because of this, we’ve taken a look at some of the best series coming to the content provider in the coming months later this year – you cannot miss out on these shows!

5) Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – season 1

Arriving to Netflix on March 6, the comedy show’s already been given a two-season order and features Ellie Kemper as our lead character Kimmy – a woman who starts anew in New York after escaping from a doomsday cult.

Alongside her is the larger-than-life singer Titus (Tituss Burgess) who’s working in Times Square as a robot, Sara Chase as Cyndee – Kimmy’s best friend from the cult – and 10-year member of the cult Gretchen (Lauren Adams), who’s still under the influence of everything she has ever been taught.

4) House of Cards – season 3

After such high critical acclaim, the House of Cards creators must ensure that the third season of the series doesn’t fall into the trip of relying too much on everything it has done before, instead continuing to push boundaries and again become one of the best shows of the year.

Streaming from February 27, Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood returns to guide viewers through the dangerous worlds of politics and hard news journalism, but just what is Underwood’s plan now that his most trusted partner and Chief of Staff Doug Staper (Michael Kelly) has met his end?

There aren’t many clues surrounding what to expect in the forthcoming season, but if what we’ve seen in the past is anything to go by, we know it’ll be addictive viewing.

3) The Fall – season 2

What’s strange about The Fall is that our psychopathic serial killer Spector is played by the incredibly handsome and charismatic Jamie Dornan – the man who’s taking on the role of Christian Grey in the highly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

One of Britain’s best exports as of late, the series sees Gillian Anderson step into the role of Detective Inspector Stella Gibson with ease, and in an incredible one-on-one scene with Dornan this season, it’s certainly a show that will have you on the edge of your seat up to and beyond the final moments.

2) Orange is the New Black – season 3

The ladies of Litchfield prison are back and whilst they’re happy to have gotten rid of evil prison guard ‘Pornstache’ (Pablo Schreiber), some new arrivals could prove to be even harder to handle than George Mendez himself – none more so than his mother – played by Mary Steenburgen – who will undoubtedly stir things up for our favourite prisoners.

Australian beauty Ruby Rose has also joined the cast as Stella Carlin – an inmate that will immediately gain the attention of on-off lovers Alex Vause (Laura Preppon) and Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), and fan favourites Black Cindy (Adrienne C. Moore), Poussey (Samira Wiley) and Gloria (Selenis Levya) are all to make triumphant returns as season 3 regulars.

No exact release date has been given just yet, but sources suspect that the season is to begin streaming from June or July later this year.

1) Daredevil – season 1

A fantastic cast has formed for Netflix’s first venture into the Marvel world, and their original new series Daredevil. With Charlie Cox in the lead role and Rosario Dawson playing his love interest, there’s going to be some incredible scenes ahead as our hero takes on the villainous Kingpin – played by Vincent D’Onofrio.

With 10 episodes available to prove that this isn’t a worthless venture for Netflix (the less said about ABC’s Agents of SHIELD the better), this is a series that could take the crowded superhero genre by storm and provide some fundamental viewing for everybody.

If you plan on watching a lot of Netflix then make sure you get it with unmetered data or better still 6 months paid for by Optus as part of this bundle offer.
