Chinese & Taiwanese Dramas Currently On Netflix
There is a pretty large selection of Chinese & Taiwanese dramas currently available on Netflix. Initially, I wasn’t going to break down every drama below. However, if you don’t have Netflix and are wondering if it’s worth it, I realized that this list may be more beneficial than just sharing the link to Chinese dramas on Netflix.
This list has more than 65 dramas. Yes, you’ve heard that right. As of June 2019, there are more than 65 Chinese dramas to choose from. This is easily the largest variety of Asian dramas you’ll find on Netflix. Are you looking for a break from k-dramas, j-dramas, or even Thai dramas? Good news! There are plenty of Chinese dramas available to get your fix.
Please note: this list was a huge project. It took me days to sift through Netflix, find all Chinese dramas, and then link them below with summaries and pictures.
Also, each title direct links to the Netflix page for easy peasy access!

Phew. *wipes brow*
This took a long, long time to put together. Still, it was a very exciting project. I had the opportunity to pay attention to dramas I normally wouldn’t have.
I will try my best to update this periodically. If something is no longer on Netflix, please leave me a comment. Also, please let me know if Netflix adds new dramas. Please keep in mind that content availability is regional. What’s available for me in the US may not be available for you. Still, I hope you find this listing helpful.
As of right now, these are all of the Chinese & Taiwanese dramas currently on Netflix. I never realized there were so many—much more than k-dramas. There’s a huge, vast selection of Chinese dramas on Netflix. It may not have all of the newest or most recent offerings. Nonetheless, this is a huge variety to choose from.
If you’re still not finding what you’re looking for, I also suggest Viki for more recent content. Viki is a legal, fan subbing community, which means that episodes are released raw and the teams create the subtitles.
Even better, coming sometime in 2019, there will be a new Chinese streaming service called Bambu. The launch is supposed to be mid-year in 2019, so we might see something soon.
If you’re still here, I also have several posts regarding other Asian content on the streaming media giant. Thai dramas currently on Netflix, Filipino movies/dramas on Netflix, and Japanese dramas on Netflix. There are many opportunities to watch dramas in many Asian languages on Netflix. I hope these lists help make it easier to find what you’re looking for.
