How to Unlock Weirdly Specific Netflix Categories like ‘Tearjerkers’ or ‘Serial Killer Movies’
Giphy

It’s a rainy Sunday, and you’ve just finished bingeing The Crown season two. With T minus three hours until bedtime, a movie sounds perfect, but the amount of content is almost overwhelming. Enter Netflix’s new super-specific category codes hack. 

Aside from obvious genres like comedy, romance, etc., the ’Flix also features categories such as “tearjerkers” and “movies for ages 2 to 4” and everything in between.

To unlock the holy grail of bingeing, visit either What's on Netflix or Netflix Secret Categories and browse for the category you’re craving. Each one has a number. Once you find the genre you want to explore further, type “www.netflix.com/browse/genre/” into the web browser on your phone or computer and add the category number after the last slash (the end result will look something like this: www.netflix.com/browse/genre/1234). The webpage that pops up will show you all the movies and TV shows that fit your desired genre. It’s that easy!

If only we could apply the same time-saving hack to online holiday shopping.
