However, the dark road is apparently blinding and the audience will find out whether the teacher makes it through the tunnel.

Peaky Blinders

Elite

A Spanish thriller dealing with the frenzies of high-class, conspiring teens, Elite, created by Carlos Montero and Dario Madrona is based in Las Encina,  a fictional elite secondary school. The series revolves around the relationship between three working-class students and the rest of their high-browed classmates.

Ozark

The cast includes Wagner Moura, Medellin Carte, Boyd Holbrook, and Pedro Pascal among many others. The first season of the series received favourable reviews from its critics.
