Netflix is dropping another tranche of Singaporean content on us in November, after the streaming service onboarded a whole bunch of classic local TV shows and movies from August to October.

This time, Triple Nine and Masters Of The Sea are among the shows being added to Netflix for Singapore viewers. Both series will be available on 15 November.

Singaporeans will recall Masters Of The Sea as the first local English-language TV drama series back then in 1994. The show featured corporate intrigue and sibling rivalry within a wealthy shipping family. It starred Margaret Chan, Ng Chin Han, Wong Li-lin, Tan Kheng Hua, Nora Samosir, and Caleb Goh.

Triple Nine was the 1990s action-packed crime drama that propelled James Lye and Wong Li-lin to fame in their roles as police inspectors Mike Chin and Elaine Tay. All four seasons of Triple Nine will be available on Netflix.
