The six-part series - based on Leslie Kean's popular book of the same name - looks at various explanations to this mystery, speaking - among others - to those who have had near death experiences, mediums and those who believe they have been reincarnated.
Check out the trailer below:
The show also calls upon experts to examine the claims of its case studies, and point out any trends that may crop up (we're talking tunnels of light, hovering above hospital beds and heavenly teachers), balancing this against more scientific understandings of death.
And after binging episode after eery episode of the new series, people have said the spiritual show has left them with some serious "chills".
"Surviving Death has been given me so many chills!," one person wrote. "Very informative & gives a different perspective."
Meanwhile, another concurred: "Just watched the first episode of "Surviving Death" on Netflix, about near-death experiences. It was so deeply moving and beautiful. I can't recommend it enough."
"50 seconds into Netflix "Surviving Death" & there's already sensations back to back throughout my crown and back, how am I going to watch this series?? it feels I have to now -the chills were CRAZY for under a minute I've never felt so much in such a little time before," another rather dramatically agreed.
The show's official synopsis tells how it "weave[s] together innovative new research with firsthand accounts from those who've been close to-and even experienced-death".
The first episode looks into whether it is possible to survive dying, even after being declared physically dead.
One particularly powerful case study is of a woman named Mary Neal, who claims she 'died for 30 minutes' in a drowning accident, after falling off a kayak.
Mary then claims she entered another heavenly dimension, laden with flowers every colour the eye could see. She also claims she spoke to some wise beings, who told her her son would die young - a claim which tragically turned out to come true.
The mum-of-four, from Jackson Hole, New York, was underwater for over 30 minutes, and was clinically dead before she came back to life upon he rescue from the accident.
She says in the show: "Twenty years ago I was not only physically dead, but dead for a long time.
"That experience changed everything about what I am and who I am."
Surviving Death is brought to us by Surviving Jeffrey Epstein filmmaker, Ricki Stern, who executive produces the creepy new docu-series.
