While we all love laid-back shows that follow a one-dimensional trajectory and aren’t mind-boggling to understand, the shows with annoying plot twists also have a special place. Just when the plot seems predictable, it takes a turn – in the form of a resurrection of a dead character, or an unexpected fact – and everything changes. If you like that, you’ll love this list of shows on Netflix and Disney + Hotstar Premium with the most dramatic twists. Check them out below.
7 shows on Netflix and Disney + Hotstar Premium with the most dramatic plot twists
1. Game of Thrones – Disney + Hotstar Premium
In almost every season Game of Thrones offered a dramatic turn that stunned our minds. From the Red Wedding to every time Daenerys was in command, “Dracarys,” the show took an unexpected turn. And, along with many other facts, these surprising turns have been made GoT one of the most successful shows of all time. Time for a repeat? Could be.
2. The Good Place – Netflix
The right place, a simple, happy and healthy show on the outside brings one of the most shocking twists and turns at the end of the first season. From the outset, you are told that Eleanor is in the wrong place and actually belongs in the wrong place. However, you later discover that they are exactly where they belong, and Michael is actually a demon. Didn’t you think a comedy could take a dramatic turn, did you?
3. Jane the Virgin – Netflix
Jane the Virgin is another light-hearted drama series, which in its own way – with the Spanish accent storyteller – is an excellent binge. If you’ve seen the show, you’ve guessed the biggest twist in the show by now; but to the uninitiated it is easy the fact that Michael is still alive! We learn that Michael, Jane’s husband, dies of a premature heart attack, but she is later reintroduced to him by Rafael, leaving the audience, and Jane herself, in shock.
4. You – Netflix
Candace is alive. Another dramatic turn given to us by the resurrection of a character who was billed as dead / disappeared on the show multiple times. At the end of the first season, Candace looks just like Beck did at the beginning of the season. This leads Joe to move to LA – running away from Candace – adding a new character and dynamism to the show.
5. This is us – Disney + Hotstar Premium
A tear-jerk, This is us, is easily one of the most successful shows on Disney + Hotstar Premium. And, unlike most of the others on the list, it doesn’t wait until the end of a season to take its dramatic turn. In fact, it does that in the pilot episode itself and, while that’s a big risk, it has worked wonders for the show. The timeline is very cleverly hidden until the end of the episode, to keep you in the dark that Jack and Rebecca are actually parents of Kate, Kevin and Randall.
6. Maniac – Netflix
Maniac is a powerful series in which things don’t actually go according to plan. As for the premise, two individuals are offered a drug that solves all their problems. Would you like to take one? Then you should probably binge on this. But while they are taking the drug, the effects are not really what they or the viewers envision and what follows as an unexpected turn in the plot.
7. The OA – Netflix
The OA is another of the many dynamic drama series on Netflix. Everything looks perfect on the show when a blind girl disappears in the beginning. But the roles change when she returns after seven years. And this time with a clear vision of the world around her. While most consider this a miracle, the true reason is slowly unraveled as the show goes on.
