While spending a lot of time indoors may not be what a lot of people are eager to do this summer, just because the warmer season is here doesn’t mean that you have to spend all of your time out in the sun. For those who prefer to still stay inside with blissfully cool air-conditioning, Netflix is the perfect way to enjoy that time on the couch and get caught up on some of the biggest shows out there. Here are 13 great options to kick off your summer binge list.

"13 Reasons Why” (Seasons 1-4)

The students at Liberty High have a lot of secrets—and all are related to bullying, murder and rape. Long after the events that led to Hannah Baker’s (Katherine Langford) suicide, her friends and fellow students are still grappling with everything they’ve done, and how much pain their actions have caused themselves and others.

Why You Should Watch: The final season of this dark drama just dropped on Netflix, meaning that fans will get a proper conclusion to the series. With its dark topics, the show has constantly been a source of conversation since its debut in 2017, and if you haven’t watched yet, the time has come to finally see it from start to finish.

This docuseries follows the nationally ranked Navarro College Cheerleaders from Texas, as well as their coach, Monica Aldama, as they all prep for their National Cheerleading competition in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Why You Should Watch: This show was the talk of many when it initially aired, and it’s a perfect watch for those who always wondered what the world of competitive cheerleading is actually like.

“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" (Seasons 1-4)

In this series, Rebecca Bunch (Rachel Bloom) moves to West Covina, California to follow her ex-boyfriend Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III) and find happiness. What she gets instead is a long hard look at her life and finds that she has a lot of issues to face first before she can find everything she has ever wanted and more.

Why You Should Watch: The show, which ended its run on The CW in 2019, is a fun time with its epic, hilarious and seriously relatable musical numbers, but is also an examination into some really nuanced characters and story arcs. The way the show also tackles mental illness is seriously admirable and doesn’t make things too heavy.

“Dead To Me” (Seasons 1-2)

As the women’s budding friendship is tested by their individual secrets, they also both learn that not everything is as easy as it seems on the surface.

Why You Should Watch: This dark comedy expertly shows the weirder emotions that can accompany grief and what causes them, but also has a powerful message about women and their relationships. With plenty of unexpected twists and turns and an all-star cast, the show is very much worth a binge.

Along the way, all three not only grapple with the dramas of their teenaged kids but also look for their own happy endings.

Why You Should Watch: The series has officially come to an end with all five seasons available to stream, and the show is the perfect dose of nostalgia and family-friendly viewing.

Singles are matched to find what is hopefully the person they want to marry. The catch? They won’t see each other for the first time until after they get engaged and have to make their decisions solely based on personality.

Why You Should Watch: This show was full of drama and has all the elements of some of the best reality television shows that deal with marriage. Think “Married At First Sight” but with even more antics.

“Never Have I Ever” (Season 1)

After a traumatic year, an Indian-American teen just wants to spruce up her social status—but friends, family and feelings won’t make it easy on her.

“The Office” (Seasons 1-9)

Who knew life in the office of a mid-chain paper supply company in Scranton, Pennsylvania could be so interesting?

Why You Should Watch: “The Office” is a beloved comedy for a reason, and is a staple when it comes to cultural icons. This summer is the time to binge because the show is officially leaving the streamer in January 2021 as it heads to a new home on NBC’s new service, Peacock.

“Parks and Recreation” (Seasons 1-7)

An Indiana bureaucrat does whatever it takes to make her town a better place—even as she faces resistance not only from residents, but some of her own staff.

Why You Should Watch: Like “The Office,” “Parks and Rec” is such a gold standard of funny television that will always have a place in popular culture. With an all-star comedy cast, it would be hard to ignore the story. Also like “The Office,” this is the last chance to watch it on Netflix—it too is heading to Peacock and will bow in October of this year.

“Schitt’s Creek” (Seasons 1-5)

The Rose family has been forced to adjust to a new reality when their lives are destroyed and they are forced to give up the ritz and glam for a very small town that they own as a joke—Schitt's Creek.

Why You Should Watch: The Rose family has officially said goodbye to fans after Season 6 of the show ended on Pop TV earlier this year, and while those episodes won’t hit Netflix until at least the Fall, if you haven’t seen this true gem of a comedy yet, you have no idea what you’re missing out on.

“Sweet Magnolias” (Season 1)

“Tiger King” (Limited Series)
