Where to Stream: Netflix

Number of Seasons: One (season two has been ordered)

What It's About: Everyone has been talking about this show. Sure, the teen mystery/drama is a guilty pleasure, but what's so wrong with that? Not to mention, it's been the center of many viral TikTok trends. The series follows a group of teenagers as they discover a treasure map which leads them to unearth secrets that should have stayed buried. Of course, as they dive deeper into the mystery, trouble arises, relationships blossom, and trust is broken.

Number of Seasons: One (season two is on the way)

What It's About: When a beloved morning news anchor (Steve Carell) is fired following a sexual misconduct scandal, an impulsive and hungry news reporter (Reese Witherspoon) comes on the scene to shake things up. All of this is much to the blindsided dismay of the popular morning show's other co-anchor, played by Jennifer Aniston. The series is based on a book, Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV. And, yes, the show is as riveting as the book's title suggests.

'Survive'

Where to Stream: Quibi

Number of Seasons: One

What It's About: The beauty of Quibi is that each episode lasts 10 minutes or less. So you can technically binge an entire series in the same amount of the time that it would take to watch a regular movie. Of the Quibi bite-size offerings, Survive stands out. The show follows a pair of plane crash survivors (Sophie Turner and Corey Hawkins) who must travel through harsh elements in order to return to society.
