Netflix has created and procured a vast selection of beloved TV shows over the years. However, what’s popular in one country might not necessarily translate across seas and borders. If you’re curious to discover what other nations love watching on Netflix – or what shows we aren’t getting on Netflix Australia – this infographic has the answers.

The list also reveals the most popular shows that aren’t offered on Neftlix Australia. How many can you spot? (As a veteran zombie fan, The Walking Dead is the big one for me.)
