Now and then, it’s important to take a break from casino table games (even your favorite online casino games!) If the weather is inviting, an escape into the great outdoors for a walk, hike, cycle or run is a wonderful way to refresh the soul. But this isn’t always possible – or maybe you just don’t feel like it and simply need some couch time to take your mind off things.
That’s where TV shows come in! If you’re one of those folks who endlessly scrolls through Netflix or other platforms looking for TV shows to binge, you’re not alone. Finding the best binge-worthy shows is no easy feat when there are so many choices.
To help you find the best shows and series to binge-watch, we’ve put together this handy list of great series. We’ll take you through the most popular shows to watch right now, the series you should consider rewatching and the much-anticipated TV releases on their way! Hopefully, we’ll help you find a new favorite or two to binge-watch in your downtime!
Binge-worthy shows worth revisiting
Not everyone wants to rewatch a show, but if you want to relive an old favorite, these are the most popular TV shows that most viewers agree can be enjoyed over and over again.
Parks and Recreation
Parks and Recreation, an American mockumentary series, is one of the best binge-worthy shows out there! Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler, is a “perky, mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks Department of Pawnee, a fictional town in Indiana.” The show follows her hilarious trials and tribulations as she tries to tackle red tape and keep her personal life in order. Although the show debuted over a decade ago, it remains one of critics’ favorites.
The Office (US)
Another great rewatchable sitcom in the mockumentary/satire category is The Office, which is based on the UK’s original BBC series of the same name, Follow the everyday, hilarious lives of the employees at Dunder Mifflin Paper Company, led by their well-intentioned yet idiotic boss Michael Scott, played by Steve Carell. This is a show that can be watched repeatedly and will always bring a smile to your face (with a disclaimer that Michael Scott is not for those who cannot handle second-hand embarrassment.) Plus, there are a whopping nine seasons to keep you entertained over however many days or weekends you need.
There isn’t much to say about this famous show that hasn’t been said before – chances are you’ve already watched this much-loved TV series more than once. This long-running show takes us into the life and love dilemmas of six young adults in New York as they tackle the mid-20-something issues many face at that age. The recent release of the TV special Friends: The Reunion is worth watching before returning to the old episodes. Give yourself a break from the jackpot slots and go back in time to watch this incredibly funny series.
Current shows we can’t get enough of
Here are some of our favorite and popular current shows.
Henry Cavill returns to the screen as Geralt of Rivia in season two of The Witcher. Adapted for the screen from Andrzej’s Sapkowski’s best-selling novels, season one was received incredibly well across the world. In season two, we see even more double-crossing, magic and political intrigue – as well as more of Cavill, which is always a bonus!
The highly anticipated season 4, vol. 2 of Stranger Things, received so much traffic on the day of release (June 1, 2022) that Netflix actually crashed. The season got the most-watched hours in a weekend premier – a staggering 286.79 million!
At a total of 781.04 million hours viewed in 17 days and the second show ever to hit over a billion hours viewed, Stranger Things season 4 is officially Netflix’s most-watched English language series of all time and the second-most watched show ever after Squid Games.
So if you haven’t watched any of the seasons, you have some catching up to do! We won’t give away too much except to say, expect all things 80s, fantasy, horror and a lot of popcorn.
Better Call Saul
With six seasons to binge – the latest and final series having been released in April – Better Call Saul has us coming back for more, time and again. In this Breaking Bad spin-off set several years before Walter White’s story, con artist Saul Goodman (formally James “Jimmy” McGill) tries to turn his life around by assuming a new identity and career to go with it. Epic cinematography, an incredible cast and a riveting storyline have made this a favorite among fans since 2015. We’re definitely grateful we’ve got a whole six seasons to hold onto.
If you’re a fan of any of the 17 Pride and Prejudice film adaptations or loved all six seasons of Downton Abbey, Bridgerton is sure to be your new favorite. Lust, wealth, romance and scandal – what more could you possibly want? How about a gorgeous cast, a sultry playlist and Instagram-worthy costumes? It’s the Gossip Girl of the 19th century and we can’t get enough of it.
The only real complaint we have is that there are only two seasons so far! We trust, of course, that with time, that’ll change.
These are the most anticipated TV shows coming to your screen shortly.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier
Marvel has been on a roll on all fronts for a while, so season 2 of this series should be another hit. It focuses on Anthony Mackie’s Falcon hero after he becomes Captain America which we see in the closing moments of Avengers: Endgame. This is bound to be another excellent series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Squid Game: Season 2
Is it too early to say we’re looking forward to season 2 of Netflix’s most-watched series? With an expected release at the end of 2023, it might be. But that won’t stop any of the die-hard fans. Set to slap even harder than the pilot, which, as writer and director Hwang Dong-hyuk said in a letter written to the show’s fans, “It took 12 years to bring the first season of Squid Game to life last year. But it took 12 days for Squid Game to become the most popular Netflix series ever.” Whenever it’s ready and whatever it holds, bring it on!
