Are you stuck inside right now and feel like you have nothing to do? What better way to pass the time than to stream all the binge worthy series!
If you are one of the many people that are stuck inside your home during the current situation, I have a list of binge worthy series for you to stream! Why not pass the time being transported to different worlds and stop thinking about all the crazy things that are going on in ours? I know that television and movies helps me escape. I am sure it will help you escape reality as well.
These series can be streamed on several different platforms, and I hope you enjoy them all! If you do, please come back and tell me. Or, if you think I am missing one that is binge worthy — let me know! I just might add it (and binge it myself).
I have been watching Disney+ since launch and I have to admit, there are a LOT of blasts from the past there! Many hours have been spent reliving my childhood — and sharing some of my favorite binge worthy series with my daughters! Sign up for Disney+ now!
But Disney+ also has some new series that are totally worth binging as well. These are just some of my favorites because quite honestly, every series on Disney+ is binge worthy! Enjoy!
- The Mandalorian: Easily the best series on Disney+, in The Mandalorian a lone gunfighter makes his way through the outer reaches of the galaxy, far from the authority of the New Republic.
- High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: New romances blossom, old friendships are tested to their limit while new ones are formed, rivalries flare, and lives are changed forever as these students discover the transformative power that only high school theater can provide.
- Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Chronicles the adventures of Anakin Skywalker, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi and other popular characters from the `Star Wars’ universe during the violent Clone Wars, as dwindling numbers of Jedi knights struggle to restore peace.

- Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends: The web-slinger teams up with Ice-Man and newcomer Firestar to battle both new and familiar enemies in this animated adaptation of the Marvel Comics character.
Hulu doesn’t have as many weird and creepy series as I would like, but they do have some great comedy ones! Rick and Morty alone is PURE GENIUS. Plus It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is always good for a laugh. Like a real REAL belly laugh. Did you know there is a Disney+ Bundle that includes Hulu and ESPN?
So if you are looking for a different type of summer binge series, this is a great place to look. Hulu has some great original series, that I think are more than worth a binge. You can also find lots of shows that are on regular television stations here.
- Legion: David Haller is a troubled young man who was diagnosed with schizophrenia as a child.
- Catch 22: Artful dodger Yossarian is a bombardier in the U.S. Air Force during World War II who is upset that thousands of people who he has never met are trying to kill him.
- Rick and Morty: Rick goes on adventures across the universe that often involve his grandchildren, Morty and Summer.
- It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Follows “The Gang,” the owners of the unsuccessful Paddy’s Pub; a group of degenerates who loves nothing more than to scheme, conspire, and mostly revel in each other’s misery.
- Future Man: Things change for Janitor Josh Futterman when he beats a video game that the rest of the world has given up on, thinking it was unbeatable. After he defeats the game, mysterious visitors from the future appear.
- Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Detective Jake Peralta, a talented and carefree cop with the best arrest record, has never had to follow the rules too closely or work very hard.
Netflix is one of my favorite platforms to binge on. There is such a variety of shows, although I prefer weird and creepy – as you can probably tell by this list. I purposefully did not include any of the Marvel shows on this list, because honestly you should have binged those by now (so good…). Pretty much every television show on Netflix is a worthy summer binge series, but here are my faves!
- You: A charming yet awkward crush becomes something even more sinister when the writer becomes the manager’s obsession.
- Dracula: Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to meet a new client and finalise the sale of a stately house in London, but finds himself trapped in a terrifying maze-like castle of undead brides with a vampire Count whose ambition is to conquer the world.
