There are few things as enjoyable as settling down on your couch with a comfy blanket and a bunch of snacks for a Netflix marathon. Some of the streamer’s biggest standouts are their shows set in high school with lovable, messy teen characters you can’t help but root for. And many of the shows have multiple seasons, letting you immerse yourself in their world for hours at a time. From laugh-until-your-stomach-aches comedies to teen romances, the streaming platform’s high school lineup is endless.
No, you don’t have to be a teen to love watching TV shows (or movies) about high school. Years after getting my diploma, high school drama and comedy series are still among my favorite TV genres. Lucky for me, they’re all over Netflix. Whether you’re looking for a boost of nostalgia (like “Gilmore Girls“) or you’re hoping to catch up on a show that’s still on like “Never Have I Ever,” “Elite,” “Young Royals,” or “Heartstopper,” there are tons of great high-school-centric series you can watch right now on Netflix. Ahead, these are the best high school series on Netflix you can watch right now!
