Best Short Netflix Series You Can Binge-Watch in a Day – Don’t Miss Out!

Explore the top six miniseries on Netflix, all of which can be binge-watched in one (long) day.

We all love to watch great series, but not all of us have a lot of time to dedicate. Plus, it can be disappointing to start a series with 3 or 4 seasons only to find out it was cancelled without a proper ending! Fortunately, for such cases, there are miniseries.

The advantage of a miniseries is that it tells a compressed story in a season of about 10 episodes maximum and can be watched without committing to a long-term watch. And so, we have not only listed the Netflix miniseries with their total duration, but we have also only kept the best ones based on AlloCiné user votes.

If you have Prime Video, here are the top 10 series available!

The Triumph of Failure

It’s The Queen’s Gambit that tops the list with a rating of 4.4 out of 5. This is THE series that managed to bring chess back to the forefront. The show tells the story of Beth Harmon, a real-life chess prodigy, from age 8 to 22, along with her struggles, including addiction. Actress Anya Taylor-Joy (Furiosa) plays Beth Harmon, captivating audiences with her meticulous and incredibly accurate performance.

The top list is quite diverse, including biopics, horror (The Haunting of Hill House), socio-cultural dramas (When They See Us, Unbelievable), thrillers (Ripley, an adaptation of the novels about Tom Ripley from The Talented Mr. Ripley), and even pure Westerns (Godless).

However, be aware that When They See Us and Unbelievable address the subject of rape. The former follows the conviction of five teenagers of color for rape based on false accusations, while the latter presents the investigation of two detectives searching for a serial rapist and a victim who finds herself on the defendant’s bench.

Top Netflix Miniseries

  1. The Queen’s Gambit (7 hours long) – 4.4484 out of 5
  2. When They See Us (8 hours long) – 4.4418 out of 5
  3. The Haunting of Hill House (9.5 hours long) – 4.3570 out of 5
  4. Godless (7.5 hours long) – 4.3503 out of 5

If you’re short on time, anthology series might also be a good fit: they have multiple seasons, but each season is standalone. In the horror genre, you can check out American Horror Story or for crime dramas, there’s American Crime Story, but that’s a story for another time…
