Stuck Inside? Here Are 25 Shows You Need to Binge on Netflix Right Now

Stuck inside? We’ve got the perfect way to spend your day — or even your week. With our list of shows you absolutely need to binge watch on Netflix, like, yesterday, there’s pretty much guaranteed to be at least one series you haven’t already seen. From comedies to dramas to documentaries, we’ve got a little bit of everything.

If true crime isn’t your style — and considering everything that’s going on lately, we totally get needing a little bit of escapism — then you might want to skip The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez. Though the show got viewers hooked, sending them furiously searching for answers about what happened to the little boy’s mom, siblings, uncles and social workers, it wasn’t an easy one to watch. If true crime is your style but you just don’t have the peace of mind to watch something so tragic, though, Netflix’s got your back.

If you forgot to tune back into Mindhunter, nine new episodes of the show dropped in August 2019, and it took fans inside even more evil crimes. Murders like Charles Manson are featured in season 2, and so are serial killers Son of Sam, Wayne Williams, William “Junior” Pierce and the BTK strangler, Dennis Rader. After season 1 took place in 1977, the second season takes us into the 1980s and the iconic cases of that era.

It’s not all about the dark, scary shows, though. Lately, Netflix has been getting plenty of buzz for its reality shows like The Circle and Love Is Blind. On The Circle, players fought to become the top “influencer” in the competition — by any means necessary. Though some believed their best strategy to win votes from their fellow contestants was by being themselves, others were willing to lie and catfish to get to the top. On its polar opposite, Love Is Blind saw singles getting to know each other without ever seeing their suitors’ faces. When couples fell in love after talking through windowless pods, they had the opportunity to prove if their relationship was the real deal out in the world.

Ready to find something that’s right up your alley? Stop scrolling through Netflix as you try to outpace the trailer’s autoplay function, and try tuning in to one of these series instead. Check them all out in the gallery below.
