We’ve all read the Netflix memes. 2 seasons and canceled at Netflix. In reality, however, Netflix has commissioned a bunch of shows that have produced dozens of episodes. Below, we’ll walk you through the Netflix shows with the most amount of episodes. 

One thing you’ll notice is that no Netflix show has managed to hit the 100 episode mark and at least over the next few years, we’re not expecting that to happen. 100 episodes was often a big milestone for shows on traditional networks given it often meant the show entered syndicated reruns.

In this new streaming era, it’s likely we’re all going to have to get used to smaller episode runs over the lifetime of a show.

There’s also something in common with all the shows listed below (with a couple of exceptions) in that they are either comedies or kids’ titles. House of Cards is still the longest-running drama at 73 episodes.

OITNB, as stated above, will continue to hold the record for a little bit longer because Grace and Frankie we’re still waiting for the show to finish up.

Orange is the New Black has a huge legacy on Netflix and has held the record for the most number of episodes for a number of years. Back in July 2019, Netflix announced that 105 million users had checked out the series.

With all that said, there is a chance the show could eventually come back and retake its record given a spin-off and even a revival were rumored not too long back.

The Ranch is an often overlooked Netflix Original series but it is the third longest-running series with 80 episodes under its belt. There are many reasons why the series was likely overlooked whether that be the tarred reputation of Danny Masterson or the fact the series targets those outside the East and West coasts.
