Netflix has a bunch of categories for you to choose. But what if I told you that there are actually hundreds and thousands of categories you had no idea existed?

Your Guide For The Secret Netflix Category Codes

Besides the typical categories like Western, Anime, Action etc. Netflix has a system that lets you filter their library using codes. If you use these, you gain access to hidden categories like “Binge-worthy British Crime TV Shows” or “Anime Sci-Fi from the 1970s”.

You're therefore able to refine your deep dive into the categories Netflix provides even further.

There are thousands of codes, so we obviously can't list all of them, but let's first start with how you can even use these codes.

To be honest, it's pretty simple. You can just type them into the search bar when you're using Netflix. This works just fine on various applications like your laptop, console or tablet, so it's the easiest way to do it.

Main Categories

Regarding the codes we'd like to mention in this article, there's nothing wrong with sticking to the basics. These are the well established categories you sometimes get recommended on your main page on Netflix:

  • Action & Adventure (1365)
  • Anime (7424)
  • Children & Family (783)
  • Classic (31574)
  • Comedies (6548)
  • Documentaries (6839)
  • Dramas (5763)
  • Horror (8711)
  • Music (1701)
  • Romantic (8883)
  • Sci-fi & Fantasy (1492)
  • Sports (4370)
  • Thrillers (8933)
  • TV Shows (83)

Sometimes it's hard to find these on your Netflix homepage, so having these codes might come in handy.

If you're looking for something more specific, here's a second list with some of my favorites.

A Little More Special Categories

There are some more specifics, but still kinda big categories we're gonna mention here, but there's even more, so here's just some of the more popular:

  • Fantasy-Anime (11146)
  • Feel-good Christmas children & family films (1475066)
  • Classic movies (31574)
  • Crime documentaries (9875)

  • LGBTQ (5977)
  • Cult horror movies (10944)
