Netflix’s tryst with American political dramas is well-aged. With thrillers such as ‘House of Cards’ and ‘Designated Survivor’, it has etched its presence with premium political content.

With comedy, scandals and self-discoveries, it will be interesting to see how Season 2 of ‘The President’ churns out. And most importantly, who finally wins the elections!
