5. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The late 90s were all about sitcoms and supernatural dramas! You were probably into both because each genre had such great selections. It was tough to stick to just one.

It’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer that made Sarah Michelle Gellar a household name. The series also stars Nicholas Brendon, Alyson Hannigan, Seth Green, and others. It premiered on what used to be The WB back in March 1997 and ran for seven wonderful seasons until 2003.

The series followed Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) as the latest young “vampire slayer.” To be a vampire slayer, you must be chosen to battle against evil vampires and demons. Despite Buffy wanting to live a normal life, she was chosen and had to embrace her destiny, which she does, eventually, as the series progresses.

Today, Buffy the Vampire Slayer continues to be a favorite series to many and loyal fans can’t get themselves to turn away when they catch a rerun on TV. It is claimed that Buffy inspired many supernatural shows that followed.

On Netflix, similar to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, at least according to the streaming service’s recommendations, are Charmed, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, and The Originals. To watch Buffy, you’ll have to subscribe to Hulu.
