Netflix’s difficult start to 2022 seems a long, long time ago.

After worryingly losing subscribers for the first time since 2012, the streaming giant roared back with a host of incredible new television series and films that had critics and viewers alike hailing them as some of Netflix’s best ever releases.

Part of their success over the past year has also been a continious release of addictive true crime documentaries that have had viewers gripped to their TV screens.

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story may have been their big hit of the year, but they also saw huge success with true crime series such as The Tinder Swindler and The Times Square Killer and as the year ends and 2023 approaches, Netflix are launching some big hitters to keep viewers entertained around the holiday season.
