Harlan Coben’s Favorite Binge-Worthy TV Series


As a perennial #1 New York Times bestselling author, Harlan Coben is no stranger to a suspenseful story that won’t let you out of its grip. In fact, with over 70 million books in print and thirty novels to his name, we’re gonna go ahead and call him an authority on the subject.

Not only that, as creator and executive producer of several television shows like the new Netflix Original drama, Safe, Coben knows what makes for great television, too. So, we were thrilled when he shared his own favorite binge-worthy TV shows with our Novel Suspects editors.


Here’s what’s on Harlan Coben’s binge-worthy TV list:


1. Hill Street Blues

2. St. Elsewhere

3. Lost

4. Breaking Bad

5. Veronica Mars

6. The Americans

Watch Harlan Coben’s shows on Netflix:


We would gladly watch Michael C. Hall’s acting all-day, every-day, until the end of time (Dexteranyone?). So, when we heard that he’s the star of Harlan Coben’s brand-new Netflix Original drama, Safe, we cleared our calendars to binge-watch all eight episodes in one sitting. (Don’t act like you’ve never done it!)

The Five

Harlan Coben’s other series on Netflix, The Five is worthy of an all-in-one-weekend watch, too. So, maybe your plans for next weekend, too? When there’s a will there’s a way—and we know you’ll want to watch this one, too.
