Most of us have had the feeling of boredom and irritation after we’ve finished binging a show on Netflix. We ask ourselves, “When will the next season be released? What do I watch now? Should I just rewatch something?” Here are some show recommendations to get you out of your rut!

Historical: The Crown

The eldest child of the late king, Elizabeth, is now to become Queen. These are the stories of young Elizabeth’s time as Queen, and how the crown became one of the most important things in her life.

Supernatural/thriller: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Number of seasons: 1
Cast: Kiernan Shipka, Ross Lynch, Lucy Davis, Michelle Gomez, Miranda Otto, Chance Perdomo

However, after meeting a new and slightly shady student named Stefan Salvatore, Elena begins to uncover the secrets he hides.

All these shows are great for binge-watching. Whether it be drama, romance, comedy, historical, or horror – they’re all entertaining, imaginative, and unique in their own way, imaginative. These flicks will keep you wanting more.
