Finished House of Cards? This new psychological thriller could be your next Netflix watch

So much good TV to go around.

Pretty soon, Gypsy could be the show that everyone is talking about.

Given that the fifth season has been on Netflix since the end of last month, we’d be surprised if fans of House of Cards haven’t finished it by now.

In fact, some of you probably blitzed through it in a day or two, but you won’t be short of options for something new to fill the Frank Underwood-sized void in your life over the next few weeks.

The much-anticipated El Chapo, for example, debuts on Netflix next Friday, June 16, while on the last day of the month, a ten-part psychological thriller called Gypsy will be available to all Netflix subscribers.

Featuring two-time Oscar nominee Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup, who starred in two Oscar-nominated films this year, Gypsy examines the life of Jean Halloway (Watts), a Manhattan therapist who begins to develop intimate and illicit relationships with the people in her patients’ lives.

As the borders of Jean’s professional life and personal fantasies become blurred, she descends into a world where the forces of desire and reality are disastrously at odds.

Written by newcomer Lisa Rubin, Gypsy is directed by Sam Taylor Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey) and also stars Sophie Cookson (Kingsman), Lucy Boynton (Murder on the Orient Express) and Karl Glusman (Nocturnal Animals).

The ten-part series is available on Netflix from June 30.
