Because life as a teenager is equal parts happy and sad, hilarious and tragic, we chose not to limit the below selections by genre, which means these picks range from animation to sitcoms to murder mysteries to horror. The adorable Peyton Elizabeth Lee plays the title character Andi Mack, a girl who learns that the person she thought was her older sister is actually her mother and that her mother is actually her grandmother. Fortunately, the series exhibits a deft hand at being able to handle these issues sensitively and beautifully without ever losing its sense of humor.
The teen years. And the teen years are inherently dramatic. Everything is heightened — failures are just a little more tragic and successes just a little sweeter.
Oye, Elite fans: The countdown is officially on! Netflix just finally released an official release date for the streaming service's surprise hit series from last year—a thriller-drama that I like to say feels like the distant Spanish cousin of series like Gossip GirlBig Little Liesand Riverdalefull of equal parts mystery, intrigue, plot twists, and way-too-sexy-for-high-school love scenes. Netflix has confirmed when the series will be returning to the streaming service.
When it comes to unrealistic teen dramas set in high school, you have plenty of binge-worthy options to choose from. Want over-the-top depictions of massive, booze-drenched parties? Try The O. Do you love the catty remarks of HBICs?
The majority of shows aimed at teens are often bubbly sitcoms where every episode begins with a trivial problem and ends with a definitive solution. Trying to navigate new friendships, first-time relationships, and what kind of a person you eventually want to become can be exciting, painful, and extremely confusing. In this instance, one might think that a comedy would be just the thing to cheer up a moody teenager.
Every generation has their own teen dramas that helped them get through tough times. Whether it was falling in love, getting rejected, dealing with bullies or hating teachers, these shows had the lot. Sure, they may have been full of actors who were far too old to be playing teenagers, and they may be more dated than any other TV genre, and some of them may have had more dramz per episode than an entire season of Game of Thronesbut we can't help but love them.
And it is worth watching at some point while watching this series. This is not what my kids are doing! With the show being a large ensemble, there are plenty of characters that pop in and out of the interweaving storylines.
N etflix is the go to place for every teenager. Obviously, the eye candy is entertaining as well! The trailer for the new series has us all intrigued and waiting for what really is going to happen.
