'Borgen' (Seasons 1-3)

The Danish political thriller is touted to be an excellent series that 'you have either never heard of or absolutely love'. A cursory look over the Internet will prove just how widespread the fanbase for the show is. Since its third season that last aired in 2013, Netflix is aiming for a revival with its season 4 (which is upcoming, more details TBA). The production is set to bring back the original creative team including creator Adam Price, and stars Sidse Babett Knudsen (Birgitte Nyborg) and Birgitte Hjort Sørensen (Katrine Fønsmark).
