Teen drama fans, have you checked out My Life With the Walter Boys yet? It’s the No. 1 show on Netflix at the moment (Dec. 12). But for those who’ve already streamed the complete 10-episode first season, you’re probably in the mood to watch more teen content.
Well, Netflix has a fantastic selection of teen shows and movies. But I’d say the teen show selection is way better than the movies. Sorry, not sorry.
In fact, there are many Netflix teen shows similar to My Life With the Walter Boys currently streaming on the streaming platform. And guess what! You don’t have to worry about finding the good ones because we’ve already done the hard work for you and shared only the best of the best down below.
It’s only right that we start off with arguably the best teen show on Netflix, Ginny & Georgia.
Ginny & Georgia
Ginny & Georgia is an Emmy-nominated comedy-drama series that premiered on Netflix back in February 2021. The first season was a smash hit and was reportedly watched for 381 million hours globally in its first month on the streaming platform. It only took two months from the first season’s release for Netflix to make the decision to renew the show for a second season.
But unfortunately, fans had to wait a pretty long time for Ginny & Georgia season 2 to come out, with it being released almost two years after the first season. After another successful season, the teen series was renewed again but this time for two additional seasons. This means a Ginny & Georgia seasons 3 and 4 will be coming to Netflix in the future.
With that being said, you might want to start watching this teen show soon so you can be caught up and prepared to watch the new season with the rest of us when it drops.
Ginny & Georgia follows the life of the Miller family, which is made up of 30-year-old free-spirited mother Georgia Miller and her two kids, angsty 15-year-old daughter Ginny, and her kind-hearted 9-year-old son Austin.
Looking for a fresh start after her husband dies, Georgia decides to pack up their things and move to the New England town of Wellsbury, Massachusetts. But Georgia has dark secrets of her own, and she soon realizes that no matter how hard she tries to keep them hidden, they will find a way to come to light.
Brianne Howey (Georgia), Antonia Gentry (Ginny), and Diesel La Torraca (Austin) make up the Miller family.
XO, Kitty is one of the feel-good Netflix teen shows. It’s a spin-off television series to the hit To All the Boys movie trilogy and centers around the love life of Kitty Song Covey. You might remember Kitty as the teen matchmaker who helped get Lara Jean and Peter together in the To All the Boys films.
In XO, Kitty, Kitty is on her own search for love. She moves halfway across the world to South Korea to be reunited with her long-distance boyfriend, Dae, and to learn more about her late mother’s life. But she soon realizes how complicated love can be when she finds herself in a love square.
Anna Cathcart reprises the role of Kitty from the movies in the series. Joining her in the teen series are Choi Min-young, Anthony Keyvan, Gia Kim, Sang Heon Lee, Peter Thurnwald, Regan Aliya, and many others.
XO, Kitty is another teen show you might want to start watching soon because a second season is currently in the works.
Heartstopper is such a refreshing show. It’s a show that makes you feel all the feels when watching, and you can’t help but root for all the main characters and their relationships. It’s a British teen show created by Alice Oseman. You might already be familiar with this series if you read Oseman’s bestselling graphic novel series of the same name. It’s a TV adaptation of Oseman’s series of graphic novels.
The show follows two teen boys named Charlie and Nick who meet at secondary school, become close friends, and eventually fall in love. They then find themselves having to navigate young love while also dealing with school.
