Never Have I Ever

There are a lot of teen Netflix shows out there that give us the white girl (or sometimes white boy) perspective. There are others that offer an LGBTQ+ perspective. What very few shows offer is a lead of another nationality (and magical creatures don’t count). Never Have I Ever changed that for the better.

The story is focused on a first-generation Indian-American girl. Over the course of 10 episodes, we watch her navigate high school. She isn’t just facing the usual coming-of-age troubles, but also trying to fit in when the world doesn’t necessarily want her to be there. Yet, there are people who have her back.

The best thing about the show is that it breaks the Asian stereotypes. It’s inclusive and supportive, making it clear what more shows need to be. This is a show everyone needs to watch.

The great news is Never Have I Ever is coming back for a second season.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

The final offering is the technicality. At the time of writing this, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 4 hasn’t been released. However, it will come on Dec. 31, 2020. It will count.

But how can I write anything about it when it isn’t out yet? I got screeners, so I have had the chance to see the episodes. And I can tell you that they are worth the wait. I’m just sad that it’s the last part after such an awesome run of episodes.

This is a show that has always been supportive, inclusive, and positive. It’s not just about Sabrina, but about the friends around her. It’s about family, about choices, and about just being a teenager. The final part doesn’t lose any of that. In fact, it makes us need a lot more of these stories in the future, making me wish Netflix hadn’t canceled it.

Once you watch it, you’ll agree that it belongs on this list.
