You season 2 is coming to Netflix later this year. Here are five good shows to watch on Netflix while waiting for the new season.
With no news of when You season 2 will premiere on Netflix, fans are finding themselves in need of a distraction until then. Some believe that season 2 is coming to Netflix this fall, while others expect it will be released on Netflix this December.
Regardless of the specific release date, fans will have to wait a while to watch You season 2, and there’s no better thing to do than to get into another show on Netflix. With Netflix’s packed library, it could be hard to narrow down exactly what shows to watch to fill the time.
To help with that, here are five shows that should make your list this weekend!
With Riverdale season 4 premiering in October, now is a good time to give this rightfully popular show a rewatch in order to prepare for the new episodes
If you’ve never watched Riverdale, then there’s no better time to start than during the wait for the second season of You.
Riverdale is based on Archie Comics characters and their stories, but The CW has taken the show and made it unique in many ways, including the addition of twists and a murder mystery vibe that many fans enjoy. Plus, who wouldn’t enjoy a show that pays homage to the classic Rosemary’s Baby and so many other good movies, especially when we are right in the middle of Halloween season!
2. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Netflix’s show Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a place that can fill the spot You has left. Both shows use suspense in creative ways and show us a more morbid part of life.
A big difference between the two, however, is that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has a good message underneath all of the cannibalism and dream demons. It’s a message of family and being yourself no matter the obstacles. You takes us on a darker ride of showing how far obsession can take a person and the consequences of said thinking.
3. Peaky Blinders
Peaky Blinders is one of those shows where it is recommended to set aside an entire day dedicated to watching it in its entirety.
The basic premise is that the show follows the story of a British crime family, the Shelbys, after WWI. As unbelievable as it may seem, the Shelbys are based on an actual street gang that was active during the 19th century who used crime as a way to regain control after their economic struggles.
The story is known for drawing you in with its fresh ways of immersing you into the realities many people faced during those times. As with any crime drama, you’ll always find yourself having sympathy for the ones you least expect.
4. The Umbrella Academy
Like Riverdale, the Netflix show The Umbrella Academy was also adapted from a comic book of the same name and has taken on a life of its own as it made its home on Netflix.
The show starts strong with a mysterious event happening, which is the simultaneous birth of 43 children to women who had no signs of pregnancy before that day. The story doesn’t follow all 43 children. It follows a select few who are revealed to have superpowers.
Immediately, this show makes the audience question where it is headed, and it might sound far fetched, but it only gets stranger from there. Each episode takes you on a ride that leaves you wondering when you had gotten on, but you also know you never want to leave.
5. American Horror Story
One show that should always be in the backs of people’s minds, especially when looking for those shows that CAN get under your skin like no other, is American Horror Story.
If you’re missing any sort of morbidity, or even a slow burn as it builds through a season, this is the perfect show to do it with as you wait that endless wait for You. Each season brings up a new fear that everyone has had whether it be a home invasion, kidnapping or a phobia of clowns, they have done it. American Horror Story has no shortage of psychopathic characters that try to justify their actions.
American Horror Story: Apocalypse was just added to Netflix last month. All eight seasons are currently streaming, while season 9 airs on FX weekly.
