Limited and Documentary Series
Netflix has a great selection of limited series, also known as miniseries, and documentary series available to stream right now.
For these lists, we tried to keep it as recent as possible. There are so many documentaries that fans have already seen over the last few years. Netflix has added a bunch of documentary series lately, so we included most of those on the list.
I really enjoyed Last Chance U, Basketball or Nothing, and Cheer. With no sports on TV for the time being, these will help you get through those times you usually spent watching live sports.
I also highly recommend Our Planet and Night on Earth! I’m all about wildlife documentaries, and these are two of the best docuseries I’ve ever seen.
For limited series, we had to go back a little further. Netflix has released some incredible limited series. When They See Us is the best of the bunch, and it tells the story of a group of five teens, Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam, Korey Wise, and Raymond Santana, wrongly accused and convicted for the assault of a jogger in Central Park in 1989. Ava DuVernay directed the Netflix series.
We also highly recommend Unbelievable, Safe, The Stranger, and Godless.
