What to Watch Now That Netflix Removed One Tree Hill

After October 1st, fans were at a lost when Netflix removed One Tree Hill. I had no idea what to watch. I was in the middle of season two when Netflix removed it from its channel. How are colleigates suppose to get through college without Lucas’s advice and Brooke’s witty charm? If you too are at a lost of what to binge watch, whether you need a break from homework or studying, here’s a list of shows that come close of being just as amazing as One Tree Hill is.

Freaks and Geeks

If you want a short-comedic show to watch, Freaks and Geeks is the show for you. The season long show has an all-star cast made up of James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jason Segel; as high school burnouts. It follows the ups and downs of their quirky lives and will never fail to make you laugh out loud. Seth Rogen adds a very satirical role to the show that helped pave the way for other characters he would play later on in his career. Jason Segel plays a loveable hopeless romantic, similar to his character on How I Met Your Mother. James Franco plays the classic heartthrob in this hit comedy show.


Riverdale is a show that’s based off of the Archie Comics. If you love drama, romance and a good mystery, Riverdale is the perfect fit for you. KJ Appa has his debut role in this new show. He plays Archie alongside the one and only, Cole Sprouse, who plays Jughead - Archie’s best friend. This show will have you on the edge of your seat at the end of every episode. Each episode ends with a dramatic cliffhanger. The show follows Riverdale’s finest as they try to navigate who killed Jason Blossom and all of the obstacles they face in their way.

Gilmore Girls

Gilmore Girls is a classic. It follows Rory Gilmore and her mom, Lorelai Gilmore, through the ups and downs of life. The Gilmore’s live in a small town in Connecticut, where everyone knows everyone. Both characters in the show are loveable coffee and food enthusiasts. Rory and Lorelai are both funny, witty and sarcastic (think if Brooke and Hayley’s personalities mixed). Every conversation these two have in the show is either about food, coffee or they’re eating food while talking about more, which is super relatable as college students.
