Web series is a series that you can watch on the web instead of TV. The primary benefit of the web series is that you do not need to be present in front of your TV when your favorite series is scheduled. You can watch it online whenever you are free.

If you are a fan of horror and thriller genre and prefer watching web series, below is the list of best Hindi Horror/Thriller web series.
