You’ve just wrapped your most recent binge when you ask yourself “what’s next?” If you need a little inspiration on what to watch next, look no further. I have a few suggestions for you based on your (possible) viewing history.


If you miss that high-stakes, early 2000 teen drama


Where The O.C., Dawson’s Creek and One Tree Hill your jam back in the sweet, sweet early 2000s? Then buckle up for the Netflix original Outer Banks. This show has it all — rich kids vs. poor kids; forbidden romances; family disputes; almost-30s actors playing teenagers; shoot outs in the middle of the street and so much more.


If you love Lifetime shows and Hart of Dixie


Sweet Magnolias (another Netflix original) is about a trio of friends who have grown up together in small-town South Carolina and now live there with their teenage children. The show opens with the main character’s doctor husband leaving her for his pregnant nurse mistress (played by Jaime Lynn Spears), so you know it’s going to be good.


If you couldn’t get enough of Big Little Lies


Also produced by Reese Witherspoon, exclusive to Hulu and based on a book, Little Fires Everywhere is a good option for you BLL fans. I didn’t love the book, but I really enjoyed the show … although I maintain that (almost) every character in this story is vile. Yes, even Mia.


If you binged Tiger King


There are sadly no “big cats” in Wild Wild Country, but there are cults in the middle of nowhere. You’ll watch this Netflix documentary wondering to yourself “how are these people this batshit crazy?!” I could totally see “Doc” Antle being jealous of Bhagwan’s following.


If you have a soft spot for Arrested Development


Dysfunctional family dynamics? Check. Rich, insane family forced to adopt to “normal” life? Check. Schitt’s Creek is the perfect fit for anyone needed an Arrested Development fix.

If you have a show a movie you’re loving lately, make sure to share the recommendation. Please and thank you!
