Not Sure What to Watch Next? Here’s What Our Editors Are Binge-Watching Right Now

All of my life, my mother has had a strict 9 p.m. bedtime. No matter what function we attended, tasks needed to be accomplished, or vacations we were on, my mother would tap her watch promptly at 8:30 p.m., yawn, and give us the signal that we had to Irish exit and get home STAT. Enter the infinite number of times she had an overwhelming opinion on what to watch on Netflix and then promptly fell into a slumber before the beginning of the movie was even over.

Two weeks ago, my mother called me at 10:30 p.m.—basically her “middle of the night.” What could my mother, who adheres to such a strict bedtime, want this late at night? I answered with much confusion, only to immediately burst out laughing when she exclaimed, “Dexter is such a good show. Have you seen it?”

There’s nothing quite like finding a new thrilling series that makes you abandon your morals and your bedtime. For our editors, these shows do that. From true crime to romance to drama to comedy and beyond, here are the shows that our team can’t get enough of right now:

 

1. Conversations with Friends

Where to Stream: Hulu

Number of Seasons: 1

I am the biggest Sally Rooney stan, so when I heard that her book, Conversations with Friends, was being adapted into a show, you already know that I hopped on it with unmatched speed. I love being a spectator of a messy, coming-of-age love story more than anything, and this show serves up all of the raw, honest drama I could ever want. If you loved Normal People, you’ll fall head over heels for this one and blow through it as fast as I did. Stream all episodes of Conversations with Friends now, only on Hulu!

2. Severance

Where to Stream: Apple TV+

Number of Seasons: 1

This show really makes you think hard about work and life. The premise of the show is a concept called severance, where they split your brain so that you don’t remember work when at home and don’t remember your home life at work. In theory, it sounds like a great way to achieve work-life balance, but we come to learn that it simply means that employers can do whatever they want to employees with no consequences. This emotional rollercoaster magnifies the unethical process of severance and how it affects not only the severed person but also everyone around them.

3. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Where to Stream: Prime Video

Number of Seasons: 4

I am definitely late to the game with this show, but after hearing from my sister, aunt, dad, and grandparents about how good The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is, I had to give it a shot—and they were right. It follows Miriam “Midge” Maisel as she juggles her new career as a stand-up comic and the chaos of her personal life as a mother and wife in 1950s New York City. If you’re looking for a lighthearted comedy and period drama with insanely good costume design, binge this show next.

4. Good Trouble

Where to Stream: Hulu

Number of Seasons: 4

I strongly believe that Good Trouble is one of the most underrated TV shows that’s airing right now—I wish I could shout from the rooftops how much I love it. It’s about a group of 20- and 30-somethings navigating life and all of the struggles that come with it while living in a communal space in Los Angeles called The Coterie. The characters are interesting and relatable, it covers timely social issues in a not-annoying way, and the storyline never gets boring. We’re currently in the middle of season four (the spring finale just aired), so it’s the perfect time to binge-watch everything before the rest of season four starts airing in July. It’s a Freeform show, but it’s released on Hulu the next day.

5. The Kardashians

Where to Stream: Hulu

Number of Seasons: 1

Say what you want about the Kardashians—there’s no denying that their lives make for good TV. I am absolutely loving their new Hulu show because it feels more authentic and like they actually enjoy doing it. I love that they often break the fourth wall, directly addressing the viewers or adding in funny commentary. It’s almost documentary style, which is a fun refresh from Keeping Up.

– Jess, Associate Editor

 

6. Russian Doll

Where to Stream: Netflix

Number of Seasons: 2

This is the first show in a while that has gotten me to break my endless cycle of rewatching New Girl. Russian Doll is the perfect mix of comedy, drama, and trippiness (but not the scary kind). With 30-minute episodes (my favorite) and an absolutely wild plot, I am flying through this show. I only wish it had more than 15 episodes so I could binge longer.

– Jessica, Social Media Editor

 

7. Selling Sunset

Where to Stream: Netflix

Number of Seasons: 5

I know—an obscure, niche show choice, right? Say what you will about the Netflix hit reality show, but I’m obsessed. When the fifth season came out last month, I binged it in one weekend, and you can bet when the reunion came out, I ate that sh*t up (I want a reunion after every single show, reality or not, TYSM). I can pretend that I love it for the gorgeous L.A. houses (#goals), but really, the drama this season had me shooketh. #teamchrishellforever

8. The Dropout

Where to Stream: Hulu

Number of Seasons: 1

I love true crime, but I admittedly get depressed or scared over anything involving murder, kidnapping, or death, so a white-collar crime with massive fraud is just my niche. The series is so well done, and Amanda Seyfried crushes it as Elizabeth Holmes (Karen Smith, who?). You’ll be fascinated by how the famous scandal unfolds and all that went into the billion-dollar business built on complete (and dangerous) lies. Mix in some early 2010s Lil Wayne bops and you have my perfect show.

9. Conversations with a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes

Where to Stream: Netflix

Number of Seasons: 1

If you’re fascinated with true crime and serial killer stories like me (morbid, I know), then you’ll love this new installment of the Conversations with a Killer series on Netflix! This documentary does such a great job telling the story of Gacy and even includes interviews with people who knew him personally. Whether you’re familiar with this story in particular or not, this series will give you chills, and if you’re still in the mood for another bone-chilling story after watching, be sure to check out the first installment, which tells the story of Ted Bundy!

10. The Real Housewives of Potomac

Where to Stream: Hulu

Number of Seasons: 6

As a lifelong Real Housewives girl (literally, I think I started watching Atlanta when I was 9 years old), I know the ins and outs of the best reality franchise the world has ever seen. I have watched every city, and besides my beloved New York, Potomac is by far the best. I’m rewatching the seasons in preparation for a new season coming out this summer, and it isn’t disappointing the second time around. If you’ve never watched Housewives but want to start, Potomac is the move. There are only a few seasons, and it is every bit as entertaining as any reality show I’ve ever seen. 10/10—I can’t wait for the new season.

11. Shining Girls

Where to Stream: Apple TV+

Number of Seasons: 1

I just started this show, and I am hooked! It just came out at the end of April, so you probably haven’t heard much about this show yet, but I can guarantee that you will. Based in the 1990s, this thriller stars The Handmaid’s Tale’s lead Elisabeth Moss as a journalist who is struggling with a constantly shifting reality due to the PTSD of being brutally attacked several years ago. She is working to uncover a recent murder when she realizes the resemblance between this attack and her own. If you love crime and psychothrillers that keep you on the edge of your seat guessing what is going to happen next, I highly, highly recommend watching this one!
