Introducing Caliphate, the gripping eight-episode Netflix series which shows three very different people as they're entangled in an ISIS terror attack.

It's set to follow a struggling mother, a spirited student and an ambitious cop as each of their lives gets tangled in the drama and chaos, and look at a horrific act of terror from each and every terrifying angle.

Flitting between Syria and Sweden, the drama will take a look at life at the centre of a terrorist organisation, and will highlight just how easily people are radicalised.

And judging by the reaction on social media, it's not one to miss.

Taking to social media after binge-watching it all, one person said: "Caliphate on Netflix is sooooo gooooood".

While another agreed, suggesting: "Self isolate with #caliphate @NetflixUK".

A third chipped in: "The action and tension had me on tender hooks throughout (sic)".

As a fourth penned: "Like other Swedish and Scandinavian dramas, it has a smooth, saturating darkness to it that keeps you drawn in, even when you want to look away. Reviting. #Kalifat #CaliphateNetflix".

Created by Wilhelm Behrman and Niklas Rockström, the series stars Gizemm Erdogan as Pervin (wife of an IS member) Aliette Opheim as Fatima (a SÄPO agent) and Nora Rios as teenager Sulle (who becomes fascinated by the dark world of the Islamic State).

It was originally made in Swedish, but is showing on Netflix with English dubbed over it so there's nothing to stop you enjoying the drama, too.

The series officially landed on Netflix yesterday, so you've just about got time to start watching it before the spoilers land online.

By the look of things, this is going to be everyone's self-isolation binge soon enough.
