New Netflix thriller series people will likely be binging over Christmas

Christmas is almost upon us, which for the lucky ones out there, means two weeks of freedom from work.

And while you're most likely going to be spending your time eating and drinking yourself into s slumber, you might also need some kind of entertainment to pass the days.

Well, as is often the case, Netflix has a new series up its sleeve that sounds like perfect binge-watching material.

Treason is a spy thriller that centres on an assassination attempt of the head of MI6, played by Ciarán Hinds (Belfast)

Charlie Cox (Daredevil) stars as Adam Lawrence, who is appointed the chief of the secret service in order to find out who is responsible for it.

His mission becomes somewhat complicated, however, when he is reacquainted with Kara, played by Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace), a Russian spy with whom he has a pretty complicated past

The synopsis for the series reads: "A triangular relationship forms between Kara, Adam and his wife, Maddy (Oona Chaplin, Taboo); three people who are trying to expose each other’s secrets, navigate political and diplomatic relationships, whilst hanging onto their personal lives, and those they love most."

Treason is set to land on Netflix on 26 December.

But this will all be old news to some Netflix customers who are apparently part of a secret club.

According to reports in the Wall Street Journal, some users have been specifically chosen to be part of an elite screening group that allows them to see films and TV series before anyone else.

The group, which is reportedly called 'Netflix Preview Club', works as a sounding board for the streaming site.

It's thought that members even had a say in the 2021 Leonardo DiCaprio movie Don’t Look Up, suggesting that it be funnier.

And if you needed any more proof that it is legit, someone claiming to be a member of the elite society started posting on Reddit.

They explained: "You watch Netflix original movies before they're released and answer survey questions about them.

"You also have to sign an NDA because these truly are not released and still in final editing stage.

"You get a special Netflix account and they email when they have a movie in there for you to watch. Usually you have to watch and review within a week."

LADbible has contacted Netflix for a comment.
