Netflix over the decade has produced some of the best teen shows in TV history. The rich vibrant color tone that resonates with modern teenagers is the winning formula that they use time after time. This list discusses the top 5 teen shows in no particular order that Netflix aired.
13 Reasons Why
This series is based on a novel of the same name by Jay Asher. A young teenage girl chooses to end her life, before doing so she tapes 13 cassettes revealing all the event that made her eventually take the call to end her life. This gritty dark teen drama mainly navigates the audience through some of the hard realities of high school and its consequences.
This comedy teen drama is set against the backdrop of a typical 80’s British high school. One of the most realistic teen show ever to release deals with the sexual problems of teenagers going through high school. The narrative is built on comedy at the same time dealing with real serious adolescent issues.
This 80’s based show doesnt follow the conventional story narrative of a typical teen drama. This is undoubtedly one of the biggest success stories of Netflix taking the TV industry by storm. High school kids obsessed over dungeons and dragons fighting with alternate dimension monsters, seems a bit overboard. Then you’re mistaken. This is exactly what you get with Stranger Things.
Never Have I Ever
Produced and created by Myndi Kaling this teen comedy-drama is a fun ride. The story revolves around a young Indian girl living in LA who has to deal with the usual high school drama.
On My Block
This is one of the most hilarious comedy-drama that unfortunately went under the radar even after picking up loads of applaud from critics. Set in the backdrop of underprivileged areas of America, we see Monse, Jamal, Ruby, and Ceasar dealing with their high school drama along with local street thugs.
