Looking for a series to binge-watch to keep you busy for weeks? Here’s 25 of the best long-running TV shows to binge-watch on Netflix, including Friends, The Office and more.

Sometimes the process of choosing a series to binge-watch on Netflix can be daunting. There are literally hundreds of shows to choose from, and a lot of the time, you can’t be sure if the series will ever have more episodes to offer than those available.

This uncertainty can cause viewers to ping pong between a show with one season and another with two seasons and, oh look, another show with one season. If you’re ready to make a long-term binge commitment, we’ve got you covered.

Although Netflix continues to churn out some of the best new original series month after month, more often than not, the average binge-watcher is looking to settle down with a sizable series longer than the now-normal 10 episodes. But don’t be fooled. There’s a fair number of original series on the platform that are climbing up in episode count, like Orange Is the New Black, and other’s that currently have the complete series streaming, like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Still, outside of the original series realm, your watch list could be filled to the brim with classic series with episode counts that tip the scales into the hundreds. If we’re to believed the reports, everyone in the world has already binge-watchedThe Office and Friends 10 times over, but both series are worthy of marathon viewing, as are hits such as Supernatural, Pretty Little Liars, and New Girl, as well as road-less-traveled choices like Parenthood, Young & Hungry, and Charmed.
