Money Heist part two is also on the list and is expected to drop on April 6.

The programme, also known as La Casa de Papel, has been available on Netflix for a while now but people are really starting to talk about it.

There’s currently one season – consisting of thirteen episodes – available to stream and while there’s been talk of  season two being made available on Netflix, no date has been confirmed just yet – although it’s rumoured to be May 1, 2018.

The show’s about a ‘mysterious man, who goes by the name of El Profesor’ who just so happens to be planning on carrying out the biggest heist ever’.

He recruits a gang of eight people with certain abilities – who have nothing to lose – so he can carry out his elaborate plan.

His goal is to enter the Royal Mint of Spain and print 2.4 billion euros, but in order to do this, they need eleven days of seclusion, during which, they’ll have to deal with ‘sixty-seven hostages and the elite forces of the police’.

Fans are pretty impressed with the show with some serious recommendations, while others have called it ‘addictive’.

One fan wrote:

If anyone wants to watch a series which provides a nostalgic narcos feeling but is more prison break type of drama/crime I highly highly recommend you watch La casa de papel or known as money heist, on Netflix it’s absolutely amazing, salute la professor. [sic]
