This highly-praised political drama series coming soon to Netflix should be next on your watch list

Kudos has been in plentiful supply.

It was around Christmas time last year that fans became obsessed with Making a Murderer on Netflix and viewers may well have something equally as popular to feast on this festive season.

According to Variety, Netflix have acquired the rights to Fauda, a critically-acclaimed series on Israeli television about a deep cover unit of the Israeli defence forces.

As well as earning plaudits from the critics, Fauda is the most-watched show in the history of Israeli satellite network YES and won the best drama award at the Israeli version of the Emmys in 2015.

Although the Israeli Palestinian conflict is undoubtedly a delicate topic, Fauda has been praised for its balance and fairness towards both sides and it has been received well in Palestine as well as Israel.

The show features both Arabic and Hebrew dialogue, but it will have English subtitles and is scheduled to start streaming on Netflix on December 2.
