10 TV Series You Won’t Be Able To Stop Watching

You know the TV series you love and must get all your friends to watch? Then the series finale comes and goes, and you’re left with three options: find something new, rewatch it, or read a book. We’re not librarians, so we can’t offer assistance on the third, but we CAN offer some recommendations for the first two. Although nothing quite beats the comfort of rewatching a favorite TV series accompanied by a solid snack, another beloved series has the potential to be a close second. We’ve gathered the cream of the crop, shows that are tried and true. Here’s a list of TV shows you won’t be able to stop watching. We’ll even let you know if it’s a slow burner or if it will grab your attention from the start. 

This can’t-stop-watching recommendation list is a melting pot of TV genres. The TV series could be adored by millions, but if it’s a romance and you couldn’t be bothered with watching a predictable love story, maybe you should opt for one of the Scream movies. It’s not a TV series, but it sure feels like it. They’re pumping out movies faster than Stranger Things can pump out new seasons. Those high schoolers will be 45 years old before they graduate from Hawkins High.
