While September 22nd is the first official day of Fall, I’ve already begun to find series and movies that I’m excited to binge-watch.
These five series are not only binge-worthy but are sure to get you in the spooky season spirit.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Based on the original comics, this adaptation of the “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” tale is a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror and the occult.
In the reimagined origin story, Sabrina Spellman wrestles to reconcile her dual nature — half-witch, half-mortal — while standing against the evil forces that threaten her, her family — including aunts Hilda and Zelda — and the daylight world humans inhabit.
Sabrina is my favorite fall show of all time and will forever have a piece of my heart. It’s witty, funny and thought-provoking. Plus, it gives me all sorts of witchy vibes.
Dead to Me
Jen’s husband recently died in a hit-and-run, and the sardonic widow is determined to solve the crime. Optimistic free spirit Judy has recently suffered a tragic loss of her own.
The ladies meet at a support group and, despite their polar-opposite personalities, become unlikely friends. As the women bond over bottles of wine and a shared affinity for “The Facts of Life,” Judy tries to shield Jen from a shocking secret that could destroy her life as she knows it.
More than once this show had me sitting on the edge of my seat. It was suspenseful and kept me guessing and wanting more.
Catching a criminal often requires the authorities to get inside the villain’s mind to figure out how he thinks. That’s the job of FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench.
They attempt to understand and catch serial killers by studying their damaged psyches. Along the way, the agents pioneer the development of modern serial-killer profiling.
I’m literally obsessed with this show. In college, I minored in criminal justice and always found the psychology behind why people commit the crimes they do.
This thrilling Netflix original drama stars Golden Globe-winning actress Winona Ryder as Joyce Byers, who lives in a small Indiana town in 1983 — inspired by a time when tales of science fiction captivated audiences.
When Joyce’s 12-year-old son, Will, goes missing, she launches a terrifying investigation into his disappearance with local authorities.
As they search for answers, they unravel a series of extraordinary mysteries involving secret government experiments, unnerving supernatural forces, and a very unusual little girl.
Not going to lie, I started and stopped this show a few times. It took me until episode three of the first season to figure out what the show was about.
Once I got what the show was about, I binged all three seasons in two weeks.
Santa Clarita Diet
Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant star in this Netflix-original series as married realtors, Sheila and Joel, who are living a quiet life, raising their teenage daughter in Santa Clarita, California.
Their world unexpectedly changes when Sheila goes through a dramatic transformation that sends her down a road of death and destruction — but leaves her looking and feeling better than ever.
If you’re looking for a light-hearted comedy with some gore, then this show will be right up your alley. It’s not overly comedic or gorey.
(If you’re not a fan of zombies, then this may not be the show for you.)
