Netflix’s popularity has skyrocketed in recent years, and one of the main reasons for this is the platform’s incredible collection of foreign projects. As soon as the streaming service gained traction, it decided to up the ante by combining TV series and movies on a single platform. They were successful, and they became the world’s biggest streaming service.
‘Money Heist,’ ‘Dark,’ ‘Who Killed Sara?,’ and other non-English language projects have received great ratings on the platform. This is why Netflix spends substantially on overseas ventures and shows no signs of slowing down. With the next German horror film ‘The Privilege,’ their worldwide repertoire will grow (Das Privileg). On Wednesday, February 9, the next German film will be available exclusively on Netflix. The movie will be accessible for viewing at 3:01 a.m. EST, according to the Netflix Press site. Subscribers to Netflix may do so by installing the Netflix app from Google’s App Store or Apple’s App Store.
What exactly is ‘The Privilege’?
“Years after his sister Anna’s sad death, 18-year-old Finn (Max Schimmelpfennig) is increasingly troubled by dreams and demonic visions,” according to the official synopsis. What his family rejects as mental breakdowns as a result of childhood trauma becomes increasingly genuine to him. As the awful events unfold around him, he can no longer pretend that it’s all in his brain.
He seeks to unearth the dreadful secret that lurks in his history and beneath his family’s supposedly inconspicuous facade with his closest friend Lena (Lea van Acken).” As He goes out with his best friend Lena to investigate a secret from his past. One that also threatens to uncover his family’s ostensibly unobtrusive façade.
And will undoubtedly immediately attract fans who like not just new foreign shows on the streaming service. Viewers will be able to see terror and perspectives from a foreign country, which will be highly novel and exciting for those who enjoy the horror and supernatural genres.
And, since we’re on the subject of German-language stuff, how about this? Netflix also revealed on Tuesday that a massive new slate is on its way to the streaming service. Through next year, the streamer plans to double its expenditure on German-language programming and movies to the equivalent of $571 million. As part of this campaign, Netflix unveiled a number of new projects. In addition to reaffirming previously announced German, Austrian, and Swiss programmes.
The action-thriller series Kleo, about a Stasi murderer in Berlin, is one of the projects in the works. Others include a historical series titled The Empress, a mystery series (1899), and the vengeance thriller Totenfrau.

Other German shows on Netflix
All of that German-language programming is part of Netflix’s massive worldwide collection, which is constantly expanding with new films. Meanwhile, below are some of the German originals that are already accessible to stream on that site and, in my opinion, represent some of the finest of the group. That is to say, the following list is entirely subjective. However, if you appreciate discovering new international episodes and movies to watch on Netflix, here are some of my choices for the most interesting German stuff I’ve discovered:
- The Billion Dollar Code is: Anyone who enjoyed Halt and Catch Fire would probably enjoy this one as well. The narrative of a small German firm that claims to have created the technology is told in this limited series.
- Blood Red Sky: This German-language horror film shot to the top of the charts shortly after its premiere on Netflix last year. This one is about a lady and her son who wind up aboard a hijacked airliner. She goes out to save her kid despite the fact that – sorry, bad folks — she is also a vampiric monster.
- You’re One of Us, Freaks: Believe it or not, there is still new narrative ground to be explored in the superhero genre. In this film, a young lady working as a fry cook finds by chance that she possesses latent abilities. “I have the ability to fling people into the air!” That’s not typical.”
