The series follows the dramatic teenage life of Devi Vishwakumar, a 16-year-old Indian-American Tamil girl. After losing her father, she loses her ability to walk for three months. She then continues the life of an average teenage girl who must deal with school and family life, her feelings for boys, and all the other emotions one experiences during that time.

Locke & Key season 3

The third and final installment of the Locke & Key series is now on Netflix. Fans have been excited to see what the last season will bring to the story of the Locke family and their mysterious Keyhouse.

The story begins when the Locke family moves into their family home, and the children discover mysterious keys throughout the house. Each key possesses its own magical power. As the children begin to use the keys, they find out they aren’t the only ones who want to use the keys but the others who seek them want the powers to be used for evil.

The final season consists of eight episodes to complete the story.

I Just Killed My Dad

The docuseries I Just Killed My Dad is a three-part story of Anthony Templet, a 17-year-old who shot his father, Burt. The pair had an argument during which Anthony shot his father two times and then called 911 to report the incident.
