The only thing that makes summer worth its while is the summer break. You finally get all the time in the world to do all of the activities that you had been planning to do but couldn’t, ’cause the damn studies would just keep getting in the way. You can finally take up the gym or learn a new language or work on hone your talents. But, let’s face it, you’ll all probably end up eating garbage food in your PJs while you binge-watch shows like the useless lump of a person that you are. It’s okay. Been there. Done that. Here is a list shows available on Netflix right now that you can catch up on during summer:
Anne With an E
Based on the Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic 1908 novel Anne of Green Gables, Netflix brings an original series titled Anna With an E. The series is the empowering story of an orphan girl who accidentally ends up with her adoptive parents who actually wanted to adopt a boy. She must now establish her validity by proving that a girl can do everything a boy can. For everyone who finds dealing with parents or being the “weird one” among friends quite testing, Anne is that imaginary friend that you always wanted.
Haters Back Off
Love Superwoman aka Lilly Singh? Then you’ll certainly love Miranda Sings. Colleen Ballinger stars as her Youtube alter-ego Miranda Sings in this Netflix original comedy. Miranda is a self-absorbed, talentless girl who is desperate to get famous and creates a mess of her personal life in an effort to do so.
13 Reasons Why
Focusing on teenage angst and psychological disorders, 13 Reasons Why is the perfect show for youngsters as it is new and very relatable. The show’s protagonist Hannah Baker’s dealings with bullying, sexual harassment and depression make it very arresting.

That 70s Show
Set in 1970s Wisconsin, The 70s Show is a period sitcom follows a group of friends as they struggle to find a purpose in their lives while on the verge of adulthood.
Rick and Morty
If you find Seth Macfarlane’s Family Guy far too boring and stretched, this adult animated science-fiction sitcom might seem like a breath of fresh air. Rick and Morty is about a sociopathic scientist named Rick who, after 20 years of being missing, storms into his daughter’s life and takes his grandson, Morty, on adventures across space.
This new Netflix Original series is as mysterious as a show can be. The story revolves around a blind girl who goes missing but, returns after seven years, which restored vision, scars on her back and she now calls herself “The OA”.
Based on the DC Comics character Green Arrow, the story outlines the story of Oliver Queen, a billionaire who fights crime by night with his trusty bow and arrow and the spirit of vigilantism.
