Have you ever wondered how Netflix recommends titles to you? Turns out the streaming service has sorted its movie and TV show catalogues into thousands of separate genres to help mix and match to your movie taste-buds. The more titles you watch, the more specific the recommendations become.

Netflix doesn’t publish a list of all those genres, so we’ve done the hard work and created the world’s largest list of Netflix genres with over 27,002 genres. You can see the full list below, and you can filter it according to genre, description and decade. Click on the link for any genre to open it in Netflix, right in your browser. (For instance, “Biographical 20th Century Period Pieces About Fame” is genre 77456.)

Depending on which country you’re in, some of these genres may not have titles available in your region — but it’s still fun exploring. What are you waiting for? Time to queue your next Netflix binge!
