People solving and covering up murders, forming a society, fighting the Demogorgon and surviving tragedies is normal in shows nowadays. These wild and unlikely events give people a chance to escape from the real world and witness what it would be like to live the lives of their favorite characters. Thankfully for those looking to imagine the impossible, Netflix provides multiple shows for its viewers to choose from. Below are five shows everyone should binge-watch.

Grey's Anatomy

Grey’s Anatomy is officially returning on September 26 with its 16th season! This highly successful show centers around Doctor Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), her friends and their lives as surgeons. With Grey’s once-in-a-lifetime romance, loyal friends, and dramatic experiences, Grey’s Anatomy always knows how to leave its viewers in total shock. Glamour shares that while the future is yet to be determined, Pompeo seems confident in the show, especially while ranking number one on ABC. Hollywood Reporter observes that Grey’s Anatomy is the “longest-running primetime medical drama” and it is “ABC’s highest-rated drama series.” Although catching up on 15 seasons might seem intimidating, its unwavering ability to always keep viewers ready for more should inspire confidence in people who are still undecided.

 

How to Get Away with Murder

Vulture informs that How to Get Away with Murder focuses on Annalise Keating (Viola Davis), a law school professor and criminal defense lawyer, who chooses a group of five law students to help her with murder cases. Season one is all about one specific murder and flashbacks provide viewers with clues that can help them try to solve it. As more clues are revealed, shocking truths are made known, leaving people wondering what the show’s writers have planned. As mentioned by Hollywood Reporter, ABC announced that season six will bring How to Get Away with Murder to a close.

The words “murder mystery” serve as the main theme throughout all three seasons of the show, and who can better solve murders than this group of danger seekers? Season four is confirmed and is set to premiere on October nine on The CW. KJ Apa shared with Seventeen that they are “going back to [their] roots this season.” Viewers will see season one vibes in the new episodes, alongside more musicals, a Halloween episode, and a crossover with a new series called Katy Keene featuring Lucy Hale.

 

The Society

Having no one but each other, they must figure out where they are, how to get back home and prevent high school students from becoming dangerous. A group of friends led by Allie Pressman (Kathryn Newton) work to create a society that ensures everyone’s safety above all else. Luckily for its devoted viewers, a season two for The Society has been confirmed!

Soon enough, other characters begin to gather pieces to solve this mystery.
