5 good Netflix shows to help you get through the rest of summer

A list of five good shows on Netflix to help you get through the rest of the summer, including 13 Reasons Why, You and more.

Summer is officially winding down, and that means fall TV shows are on the way. If you’re looking for new Netflix shows to watch to help you get through the last few weeks of summer, you came to the right place.

Netflix has so many shows; you can’t have seen them all! Below, we have shared a few good Netflix original shows to watch before all the fall shows come back with new seasons.

Let’s get the list started with 13 Reasons Why! 

13 Reasons Why

With news of its upcoming third season that has fans wondering who killed Bryce Walker, why not binge-watch the first two seasons on Netflix before watching the third? Season 3 premiered on Netflix on Friday, Aug. 23.

If you have already seen the series, you can rewatch all the crazy moments from the series.  Who knows, you may pick up clues in season two that may help reveal Bryce Walker’s murderer.


As a new permanent addition to the Netflix family, You is coming back for a new season later this year, possibly as early as this fall.

You follows Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley), a bookstore manager who becomes infatuated with a woman he meets at the store. From there, it gets crazy!

As the second season may soon arrive for all the hungry fans, it seems worth a rewatch to mentally prepare yourself for the next emotional rollercoaster that You will take us.


To keep this morbid trend rolling, next on the list is Netflix’s hit show Mindhunter.  For all true crime enthusiasts, Mindhunter is the perfect show to binge-watch over a summer weekend.

With the recent release of season 2, Mindhunter takes us back into the world of the BSU as they study America’s worst serial killers. The new season features infamous ones like Son of Sam, Charles Manson and more of Ed Kemper, the Co-Ed killer. We also see as Agent Holden, played by Jonathan Groff, dedicate himself to solving the Atlanta Child Murders.

If that isn’t enough to entice you, we also see Agent Tench struggle when he sees troubling signs in his son that reminds him of the very same criminals he studies. Every episode leaves us wanting more.

The Office

If you’re looking for a show that will cure those summer blues and make you feel at home, look no further than The Office. With it’s not nearly long enough run of nine seasons, the Dunder Mifflin family is one that we got to know very well.

We watched as Pam and Jim’s relationship flourished into one of TV’s most iconic couples, we watched as Dwight plotted to take down his archnemesis Jim Halpert by any means necessary. This show takes us through many ups and downs, but like hot chocolate during a winter storm, it gives us a sense of comfort that will always keep us coming back.

Unfortunately, The Office is leaving Netflix after next year. Make sure you watch the series as much as you can on Netflix before it leaves the streaming service.

Jane The Virgin

With the show ending its five-season run back in July of this year, we say a final goodbye to the Villanueva family.

For those who don’t know about this great series, Jane The Virgin is loosely based on a a telenovela called Juana la Virgen. In the series, Jane Villanueva, played by Gina Rodriguez, a devout Catholic was a 23-year-old virgin who is accidentally artificially inseminated during a routine gynecological visit. And, it leads to a crazy 100-episode series!

All five seasons of Jane the Virgin are now streaming on Netflix!
