12 TV Shows Worth Binge Watching This Season
It’s finally fall! You know what that means – obviously we’re all about PSL everything, but more importantly it’s prime time TV watching season. That’s right, all your favorites are back (with the exception of Scandal until Winter 2017) with new seasons, like Empire, HTGAWM, and American Horror Story, as well as a few newbies that have created major hype, like The Night Of and Queen Sugar.
We’ve rounded up a few of the shows we’re completely addicted to rn for a cohesive guide on what you should be tuning into. Read on for the full scoop on what to binge watch ASAP — any weekend plans that don’t involve a television may have to be cancelled.
1. The Night Of
To say this show is addicting would be the understatement of the century. Once you watch the first episode, you’ll immediately be pulled in. The Night Of is an eight-part limited series that delves into the intricate story of a fictitious murder case in New York City, and is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. Total “white knuckle” moments ahead.
Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) is flexing his talent muscles once again with his fresh series, Atlanta, which he directs and stars in. Centered around two cousins trying to work the music scene in Atlanta for the betterment of their families. Plus, the soundtrack is totally bomb.

3. Grey’s Anatomy
Grey’s Anatomy is an oldie but goodie, and we’re still obsessed with the ongoings at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. The show is now on it’s 13th (!) season, and even though we’re upset by the passing of Derek Shepherd, the complex lives of these doctors leaves us wanting more after every episode.

We first fell in love with Rachel Evan Wood in the movie Thirteen, and then again in Across the Universe – total girl crush. Now, she’s gracing our screens yet again in Westworld, a show that intersects the future and the reimagined past, and explores a world in which anything is possible. Did we mention the series also stars Anthony Hopkins, James Marsden, Ed Harris, and Thandie Newton? Count us in.

It’s safe to say that we’re all about the Cookie at this point, but if you haven’t delved into the depths of deception brought to you by the Lyon Family dynasty, this season is definitely one to watch.

Similar to AHS in the made-for-tv horror genre, Stranger Things centers around a small town that uncovers a mystery involving the supernatural & secret experiments. We get chills just by watching the preview.
12. The Get Down
Set in the 70’s and directed by Baz Luhrmann (director of The Great Gatsby), The Get Down is a funky exploration of the beginning of the hip-hop movement in the South Bronx. We cannot wait until the release of Part 2 – binge watching will definitely ensue.
