We may have all passed that teen phase of life where nothing made sense (it still doesn’t actually), but we have not stopped growing up. Very seldom we come across shows that we can relate with. And the fact that there’s still time for GOT to be back, we do have few good months in our hands. Taking a break from all the violence, maybe you should watch a more soft genre, like teen drama. And you can obviously relate to it as we’ve all been through that phase. Following are some of the teen drama shows that you should see –
1. 13 Reasons Why
A Netflix original that had one of the most crucial problems the world is dealing with at the center, 13 Reasons Why is a show you should see, even if you’re not a teen anymore. Hannah Baker takes her own life leaving behind a series of video tapes that have reasons that led to her taking such a drastic step. 13 Reasons Why makes you think harder about the way you treat people, teaches a great deal about depression and mental health, and most importantly, helps you deal with your own depression.
Based on the characters in Archie comics, Riverdale is a story of Archie and his friends living in the town of Riverdale. Archie, Betty, Veronica and Jughead are four individuals whose lives turn into a roller coaster when a fellow student is murdered. Fighting their own demons, figuring out ways to save Riverdale and solving mysteries that this murder has created, the four characters are seen going through a lot of ups and downs. If mystery shows entice you, Riverdale is definitely worth your time.
3. Gossip Girl
This one is an absolute gold. Not only did we get to see the journey of friends from school to grown up individuals in a span of six years, we also got our very first celebrity crushes from here. You know you had a thing for Serena van der Woodson and Chuck Bass, depending upon your likes. Gossip Girl had it all, the mystery, the drama, the romance, the action. It’s a show that offers viewers the full package. If you haven’t seen Gossip Girl yet, get with it right now. There’s only six seasons but a lifetime of drooling over Chuck Bass.
4. One Tree Hill
Anything that has Chad Michael Murray in it has to be worth a watch. But this show had everything. From the beautiful cast that have the characters they played etched in our hearts to a story line that accurately depicts what it’s like to be growing up, One Tree Hill never stopped being one of the best teen drama TV shows. In no time, Lucas, Peyton, Nathan, Haley and Brooke became more than just characters. One Tree Hill is a show you should see to relive your college days through the eyes of these characters.
