With the start of the new decade, many shows that were once closest to our hearts either ended or advanced into later ages. With Netflix offering a wave of new content, sometimes, we all miss the charm of quality television.
Quality comes with time, a great group of writers, and a brilliant production team. The crystallising moment of those talents coming together to create a perfect show at the perfect time can feel like a gift sent from on high. It’s only natural that we’d want to go back to them time and time again.
To fulfil your need for a new watchlist, Best of Netflix has made the perfect list of five shows who have ended their term. Although these shows have come to an end, they will live in the hearts of viewers rent-free for years to come. And to make sure the sweet thought of watching these never leave our minds and hearts, it is always good to revisit gems of the past.
Revisiting shows on Netflix is part of the reason we love the streaming service. Comfort-watching is a really nourishing prospect, and these shows offer our souls the warmest of entertainment blankets.
