We may become bored if we stay at home for an extended period of time during the endemic in 2023, so why not watch some of the best Netflix Thai series? If you’re unfamiliar with Thai movies, lakorn (soap operas), or TV shows, their way of story-telling is actually quite unique, interesting, mind-bending, and ‘addictive‘ too.
Here I’ve compiled a list of the best Netflix Thai TV Series to watch in 2023. If you love Thai series but haven’t started any on Netflix, you’ve come to the right page! I’m sure you will enjoy and spend the entire day binge-watching Thai TV shows in HD. I’ve seen the majority of the series or Thai movies listed below, so trust me when I say it’s worth your time.

As this is going to be a long list, I tried not to write too much about the series in the list below because I didn’t want to give away too many spoilers. Ready to watch for some long-hour Thai dramas in Malaysia?
Other than Netflix, I can’t find any other platform able to stream Thai drama series on TV in Malaysia. There are many series found on iQiyi but it only allows streaming on PC, mobile and tablets. I don’t have any Android TV so I don’t know if the streaming apps would work on TV.
Hold on a second, there is good news for Thai drama lovers! I actually found the best way to stream some nice and latest Thai dramas online on Youtube which I shall reveal in another post. Stay tuned for this. Remember to subscribe or click on the bell on the lower-left corner to receive future notifications and updates from this blog.
But anyway, this post is about Thai TV series on Netflix. You can actually try to request some of the new 2021-2023 Thai TV dramas or movies not on Netflix such as Wanthong, Friend Zone, etc.
Netflix Malaysia seldom released any Thai series/movies due to streaming rights, cost, or regional availability according to the Netflix TV shows/movies Request page.

Sleepless Society Series – Insomnia, Nyctophobia, Two Pillows & A Lost Soul, Bedtime Wishes
This Thai thriller TV show features mysteries and mind-bending stories. I can’t stop watching all four Sleepless Society series on Netflix because of the exciting storyline.
From murder crimes to love conflicts, the majority of the series is entertaining to watch, with each episode attempting to draw you deeper and deeper into the dark side of the story. I tried not to spoil the mood and will only provide some highlights for each of the series below.
Insomnia – My favorite Thai actress/model Aokbab take the role of Aya, a young female model who has always had a recurring dream, which caused her to the point where she becomes confused and begins to distinguish between reality and dreams. There are 13 episodes in the series, which you should watch if you enjoy mystery-solving, twisted crime thrillers.
Nyctophobia – One of the earliest series I’ve watched, tells the story of Meena who experienced nyctophobia ever since her son died. A mysterious boy came to her house one night, telling her that he is her dead son who has come back. The boy later causes havoc in the house and Meena tries to find out who is the mysterious boy.

Two Pillows & A Lost Soul – This Sleepless Society Series consists of 13 episodes that tell the story of a lovely lecturer who is trapped in a bad marriage. She goes to a wild party one night and wakes up with a dead man.
Bedtime Wishes – One of the best of all Sleepless Society Series I’ve watched so far, this series tells the story of a woman named Nara who stayed in a resort owned by her rich boyfriend’s Rain and later finds out there is something strange that actually happened in the past.
This mind-twisted dark ‘ what the heck just happened‘ and the mysterious storyline is worth watching and added to the Best Thai TV Series on Netflix list.
It had a consistent storyline that never interfered with the rest of the episodes, good cinematography that gave me a mysterious thrill, well-written dialogues, and, of course, a great performance by Krit Shahkrit Yamnam and Pinky Savika Chaiyadej who dived into their characters.

One of my top picks on Netflix right now is the 25-episode Thai horror comedy-drama ‘Nak’ also known as Nang Nak Saphai Phra Khanong, starring Atitaya Tribudarak, Jirayu La-ongmanee, Rudklao Amratisha. Mind 4Eve took the role of the lead character, Nak. Not only is Mind 4eve a talented actress, but she also contributes to the show’s soundtrack with her singing. The show is based on a beloved Thai folktale about a beautiful woman who falls in love with Phi Mak but faces significant challenges throughout her life. Sadly, Nak passes away during childbirth, and her spirit becomes a ghost that haunts the villagers, patiently waiting for her husband to return home from the Ayutthaya period’s war.
