Welcome to Part 2 of this round up of Historical Dramas on Netflix Australia. There really is plenty to choose from and covering all tastes and time periods. If you like your historical dramas to have a bit of romance then you can read Part 1 here. But if you prefer dramas with a bit of action then this is the list for you. Plenty of intrigue, violence and heroes here!
I love historical dramas. Any time I see some sort of period costume I immediately am intrigued. What time period is it set? Where is it set? Is it a true story? Does it have a hunky love interest? Ok that last one isn’t very specific to the genre, but it’s still an important question.
There’s a mountain of historical dramas on Netflix Australia so I’ve put together a list of some of the ones I’ve been watching recently as well as some of the ones that are next on my to watch list.
Obsessed with Jane Austen like me? Do you enjoy watching ladies of leisure strolling the gardens and trying to catch the eye of the eligible beau? There’s something so magical about these stories, and if you’re a Cactus Pop regular then you’d know that I am fairly obsessed with my period drama. (See Darcy Vs Thornton Showdown and Definitive Jane Austen Collection).
But there’s plenty of other great adaptations out there just waiting for you to watch them. You may have heard of these authors, but have you seen some of their lesser known adaptations?
