Hey Netflix, the Warrior Nun Cast Has Some Pretty Great Ideas for Season 2

[Warning: The following contains spoilers for Season 1 of Warrior Nun. Read at your own risk!]

This is an official petition for Netflix to renew Warrior Nun for Season 2 so we can make sense of everything that happened in that insane season finale. The supernatural series delivered one hell of an ending with the disorienting reveal that Father Vincent (Tristan Ulloa) was the bad guy all along. To be fair, he seemed too nice to be that genuine.  

Father Vincent has been working alongside Adriel, the angel believed to have created the warrior nuns by bequeathing Areala (Guiomar Alonso), the first of their kind, his halo more than a thousand years ago. But in another shocking twist, we also learned that Adriel is actually a devil, as Ava aptly put it, so there's a good reason he's been locked away in that tomb for a millennia.

According to series creator and showrunner Simon Barry, those revelations are a completely game-changer for the nuns in a potential second season. "Everything has been changed for the OCS and so, they have to deal with a complete reversal of their existence. They used to be this secret sect. They used to be protected by the church, and now they are kind of adrift on their own," Barry told TV Guide.

If You Like Wynonna Earp, You Should Watch Netflix's Warrior Nun

If the show does return for more episodes, Alba Baptista, who plays Ava, said she would love to delve more into her character's supernatural abilities. "I would love to explore Ava's powers more…Perhaps other facets of her powers, which I think there's still an ocean to explore there," Baptista explained.

Meanwhile, Toya Turner revealed that she would love to dig deeper into Shotgun Mary's backstory as well see the nuns venture out into the real world more often. "I know a lot of girls don't get out much in the group. It'd be nice if they were able to do that more," Tuner said.  

Here's hoping there's also more demon-fighting in potential new episodes.

Season 1 of Warrior Nun is now streaming on Netflix.

Well, we're about to help your day get a lot better with this list of shows that will pick up your spirits.

From family comedies like One Day at a Time and Kim's Convenience to relaxing reality shows like Nailed It! and Queer Eye to animated delights like Bob's Burgers and Steven Universe, these 14 series are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and a warmth to your spirit. Read on for the best feel-good shows streaming on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Disney+ below.


The Baby-Sitters Club


Watch it on: Netflix

Ann M. Martin's cherished books about a gaggle of girls who set up their own baby-sitting business are updated for modern audiences with Netflix's new adaptation of The Baby-Sitters Club. I know what you're thinking, "For real, TV Guide? The Baby-Sitters Club?" Yeah! The show is a delight for all ages, faithfully adapting the books while also adding in episodes dealing with important current-day topics, such as transgender visibility and racism. It's light and refreshing family-friendly TV, perfect for an easy summer binge with the family when everyone's looking for a positive attitude adjustment.


The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air


Watch it on: HBO Max

The show that gave us international treasure Will Smith holds up as one of the best sitcoms of the '90s. As the show's iconic theme song tells us, the premise is a classic fish-out-of-water scenario, with Smith's character (also named Will Smith) being sent away from his West Philadelphia neighborhood to live with his rich, conservative aunt, uncle, and cousins in Bel-Air. Fresh Prince is still funny -- the physical comedy! The way James Avery delivers his every line! -- and, most importantly, it has such a good heart. It's the kind of show that reminds us that it's possible to find family anywhere, and of the ways people are capable of changing each other's perspectives. -Allison Picurro


Community


Watch it on: Netflix, Hulu

As is the case with many shows that were under-appreciated during their time, Community's dedicated and passionate fandom has only grown in the years since the series finale aired back in 2015. Though it started out as a pretty standard comedy about six people who become friends while attending a quirky community college, it quickly revealed itself as something special, a joyously weird show that reveled in its own weirdness. The rapid-fire jokes, the nonstop pop culture references, the high-concept episodes, the guest stars, the core cast's commitment to all the absurdity -- all those elements make up for the show's rockier moments, and it's enough to make Community the kind of watch that will leave you wanting to quote every line with your friends. -Allison Picurro


The Good Place


Watch it on: Netflix

Mike Schur's critically acclaimed comedy starts by following a group of strangers navigating their afterlife in "The Good Place," but the NBC standout turns into so much more. Known for unpredictable twists that repeatedly change the series' entire trajectory, The Good Place expertly balances whipsmart humor with emotionally resonant, serialized stories and thoughtful mediations on existential questions, such as what it means to be a good person. But what makes The Good Place such a necessary watch is its message: that everyone is capable of self-betterment, and that by building community centered around doing good, you really can change people's lives, and maybe even the world, for the better.

Superstore


Watch it on: Hulu, NBC app

It's pretty baffling that Superstore isn't as talked about as some of the other comedies on this list, because what do they have that this NBC comedy doesn't? If anything, the other shows should be jockeying to claw out of Superstore's shadow because it has one thing they'll never have: Sandra (Kaliko Kauahi). The soft-spoken big box store employee consistently delivers some of the funniest lines on TV -- but Sandra isn't the only one on the series who doesn't get her mainstream due. The entire series is operating on all cylinders at all times; it has a fantastic ensemble cast, a fresh and off-kilter sense of humor, a willingness to get weird, and a lot of important things to say. You'd be pressed to find a show doing a more incisive take on workers' rights than Superstore, and its exploration of what it's like to be an undocumented immigrant sheds vital light on this important issue.


High School Musical: The Musical: The Series


Watch it on: Disney+

When you first see the title of this Disney+ series you either think the show is completely unhinged or must have a great sense of humor. Fortunately for all of us, it's the latter. High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is an incredibly clever, self-aware, and heartfelt series about a group of teens putting on a school production of High School Musical. Whether you were a fan of the original Disney Channel film or not, this sweet mockumentary series will win you over and prove that even such an obvious nostalgia play as this really can be the start of something new.


One Day at a Time


Watch it on: Seasons 1-3 on Netflix, new episodes will be available on PopTV

This endearing reboot of the Norman Lear sitcom follows war veteran and single mother Penelope (Justina Machado) and her Cuban-American family, including her suave son Alex (Marcel Ruiz), activist daughter Elena (Isabella Gomez), and her theatrical mother Lydia (Rita Moreno). One Day at a Time has earned a passionate fanbase for the way it covers important issues -- like PTSD, coming out, and immigration -- with a sense of hope and perseverance. It's the type of comedy that will make you laugh as much as it makes you cry, but always leaves you feeling good.


Schitt's Creek


Watch it on: Netflix, PopTV, CW Seed

Co-created by father-son duo Eugene and Dan Levy, Schitt's Creek kicks off as the Rose family -- businessman father Johnny (Eugene Levy), actress mother Moira (Catherine O'Hara), aesthetic-obsessed son David (Dan Levy), and socialite daughter Alexis (Annie Murphy) -- lose everything, including their fortune and their more fortunate friends. As a result, the family is forced to relocate to Schitt's Creek, a small town populated by an array of eccentric and lovable locals. Only after they have been stripped of everything else do the Roses begin to find value in something they had never truly appreciated before: love -- of themselves, of each other, and of opening oneself up to new possibilities. This kind-hearted sitcom is devastatingly sharp, breathtakingly optimistic, and impossibly tender. It also features O'Hara doling out some of the most delightful diction in line deliveries ever put on screen, which should be reason to watch alone.


Nailed It!


Watch it on: Netflix

It's very easy for reality competition shows to feel mean-spirited or stress you out while watching, as you pray your favorite contestant doesn't get cut. Nailed It! avoids both of those potential pitfalls with its unique premise. You see, this isn't a baking show in which experts push themselves to reach new heights. It's not even a show in which amateurs come to improve. Instead, Nailed It! gathers together a few home bakers each episode who then attempt to create impossibly advanced treats -- not because they think they'll do a good job, but because they're just down to have fun while trying. Hosted by comedian Nicole Byer and chocolatier Jacques Torres, Nailed It! treats every contestant with respect and kindness, and its refreshing attitude about embracing mistakes is a lovely addition to the TV landscape.


Kim's Convenience


Watch it on: Netflix

This Canadian series is far more subversive than its familiar sitcom trappings would lead you to believe. Following a family of Korean-Canadians who run a convenience store, Kim's Convenience is both a clever take on immigrant family life and a laugh-out-loud screwball comedy. Watching the stubborn Appa (Paul Sun-Hyung Lee) slowly reconnect with his reformed bad boy (and devastatingly handsome) son Jung (Simu Liu) or daughter Janet (Andrea Bang) try to assert her independence without upsetting the doting Umma (Jean Yung) will raise your spirit, warm your heart, and have you laughing out loud.

Bob's Burgers


Watch it on: Hulu

This long-running Fox comedy is perfect if you're looking for a nice long, binge. The animated series follows the Belchers, a working class family who run a burger shop in a seaside community filled with A+ weirdos. The show's quirky comedy blends with smart takes on class divides and heartfelt stories that showcase just how much the Belchers always love and support one another. And even 10 seasons in, Bob's Burgers continues to be bellyachingly funny thanks to its willingness to take risks and commit to even the weirdest bits with gusto.


The Great British Bake Off


Watch it on: Netflix

Is any show more calming than The Great British Bake Off? Also known as The Great British Baking Show, this serene baking competition gathers together a group of contestants in an idyllic pastoral setting where they're faced with a series of baking challenges each episode. Although a contestant is eliminated each week, The Great British Bake Off doesn't mine the show's competition for interpersonal drama or attempt to exploit anyone's more competitive nature. Rather, the show seems designed to help everyone do their best, allowing them to live at home with their families in between competition rounds and stay relatively grounded throughout filming. It's a lovely and charming series, and the only real con to streaming it is you'll likely find yourself with an insatiable craving for treats (free of soggy bottoms, of course).


Parks and Recreation


Watch it on: Netflix, Hulu, Amazon

For anyone who may be frustrated with the current state of society, you may want to escape into the world of Pawnee, Indiana. Once you make it through the Mike Schur comedy's bumpy first season, Parks and Recreation becomes a heart-healing escape that leaves you with a feeling that not only is positive change possible, but that anyone can be the vehicle for that change if they so choose. Sure, no one will ever have the boundless optimism, superhuman energy, and stagger competence as Pawnee Parks Department employee Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), but maybe you have the biggest heart like Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt), the keen intelligence of Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott), or even just the luck of falling upward like Jerry Gergich (Jim O'Heir). Always funny and always kind, watching Parks and Recreation is like a balm for your soul when you need it the most.


Steven Universe


Watch it on: Hulu

If you thought Steven Universe was just for kids, you have been missing out on one of the purest shows on TV. The coming-of-age series focuses on a young boy who protects the world with the Crystal Gems, his family of magical, humanoid aliens. Half-gem himself, Steven straddles the human and alien worlds and themes of self-love, acceptance, and family give the series a lot of its heart. On top of Steven Universe's uplifting messages, there's so much else to praise about this jubilant series; the astounding animation is a visual feast, begging you to get lost in Steven's world, and the show's well-plotted world-building provides an overarching narrative that will quickly hook you in. Steven Universe is as enjoyable a watch for adults as it is for kids, so don't write off this lovably goofy series simply because it aired on Cartoon Network.


Brooklyn Nine-Nine


Watch it on: Hulu, NBC app

It's wild that one of the most kind-spirited, effortlessly woke, and joyful shows on TV is about a group of NYPD detectives, but that's just one of many ways Brooklyn Nine-Nine subverts expectations. What started as a typical workplace comedy, complete with a no-nonsense boss (Andre Braugher) and manchild employee (Andy Samberg), quickly evolved into a riotously funny ensemble series that breaks sitcom form by not only allowing its characters to grow, but actively encouraging it. Between its heartfelt character development, memorable one-liners, and the annual heists, Brooklyn Nine-Nine will have you giggling with glee and grateful that there are seven seasons and counting of this feel-good show.


Queer Eye


Watch it on: Netflix

In only two years, Netflix has released five seasons of Queer Eye and ordered a sixth. This intense output is reflective of just how much fans have latched onto this reboot -- and to the new iteration of the Fab 5: Jonathan, Tan, Antoni, Bobby, and Karamo. Together, these men have not only helped improve the lives of the "heroes" they meet each episode, but their messages of self-love have also had a positive effect on viewers. So if you're looking for a little self-care, let Queer Eye's Fab 5 work their magic.


Derry Girls


Watch it on: Netflix

Set in Northern Ireland in the '90s, the hilarious Derry Girls follows four local teenage girls and their English friend James who attend a (mostly) all-girls Catholic school. With Ireland's political unrest acting as the series' backdrop, Derry Girls puts a humorous spin on what it was actually like to grow up during the Troubles. The show's core group of friends are more often concerned about everyday struggles, such as winning the favor of the hot local priest, than the army checkpoints or violence throughout the region. But that doesn't mean Derry Girls makes light of the issues, nor that it can't deliver an emotional gut-punch when you least expect it.

The Best Sci-Fi TV Shows to Watch Right Now

Tatiana Maslany, Orphan Black | Photo Credits: Ken Woroner/BBC America

Until we get flying cars like we were promised, the future is not now, no matter how much people try to tell you that it is. For all the things we want but can't have, we must turn to science-fiction TV, which helps us escape the monotony of real life through alien encounters, machines that can synthesize any food we want, and time-travel to any other year than 2020. 

From the all-time classics to the new releases ready to take their place, we've poured yearrs of our lives into watching everything in the sci-fi genre and have collected our favorites that are ready to stream right here. What you'll find are plenty of shows about dystopian futures, clones, robots with feelings, galaxies far, far away, and even immortality across the various streaming platforms.

Check out our list of all the best sci-fi shows for you to dive into on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, HBO, and more.

Last updated July 10, 2020.


Devs

What it's about: A woman investigates the disappearance of her boyfriend, who was working on a top-secret project at a powerful tech company in San Francisco
Why it's worth watching: After movies like Ex Machina and Annihilation, Alex Garland is proving to be one of sci-fi's most exciting creators, and his TV debut features all his trademarks. Devs is packed with philosophy and intellectual discussions about our very existence, technology's place in society's advancement, and the dire consequences of tinkering with fate, almost to the point that it's too cerebral. But take it slow and you'll find a beautifully filmed single-season series that has big points to make about the dangerous precipice advanced computing has us inching toward. 
How many seasons: 1
Where to watch: Hulu


Timeless

What it's about: A team of three travel throughout time to save the future from a mysterious organization that wants to change history
Why it's worth watching: Time travel shows can become messy affairs of paradoxes, brain-busting theories, and plot holes, but Eric Kripke's Timeless used time travel simply and splendidly in this throwback, swashbuckling adventure series. A historian, an engineer, and a soldier are sent back in history to prevent the villainous organization known as Rittenhouse from altering history in order to change the future to their advantage, meeting famous overlooked figures from history -- often minorities and/or women -- along the way. In that sense, Timeless is almost as educational as it is exciting. But the real strength of Timeless comes from its characters and their relationships, like the epic romance between Lucy (Abigail Spencer) and Wyatt (Matt Lanter). Timeless is a real crowd-pleaser, the kind of sci-fi series for people who usually shy away from the genre.
How many seasons: 2
Where to watch: Hulu


Orphan Black

What it's about: A woman discovers that she may not be the only one of... her
Why it's worth watching: Orphan Black burst onto the scene in 2013, coming out of nowhere to stun critics and viewers with its crafty premise: a con artist witnesses the suicide of another woman who looks just like her, leading her down a rabbit hole of clones and conspiracies. The BBC America series combines action, science-fiction, and humor extremely well, creating characters you'll adore (Alison Hendrix is a legend) and anticipate venturing into each others' orbits. Chameleon Tatiana Maslany won an Emmy for her roles as the many different versions of the same woman, though she really should have won at least three. The first seasons are the strongest, but Maslany and the great cast stay great throughout its run.
How many seasons: 5
Where to watch: Amazon


Battlestar Galactica

What it's about: A reimagining of the 1970s classic in which alien robots threaten to wipe out humans
Why it's worth watching: Battlestar Galactica is considered one of the all-time great sci-fi series, and when it was released in the mid-2000s, one of the best TV shows period. Ronald D. Moore's take adds a wrinkle that increases the paranoia tenfold; the Cylons can impersonate humans, meaning the crew of the Galactica realizes that some of its members could be Cylons in disguise, even if the Cylons don't know it themselves. Watch the miniseries that launched the series first, then dive into the next two seasons, which is some of the greatest sci-fi television ever made. Later seasons tail off a bit, and the ending wasn't well-received by all, but the show is still well worth the journey.

The Orville

What it's about: In the far future, the crew of a space ship explores the galaxy to bring alien cultures into the Planetary Union, while also sometimes manufacturing pot brownies in the ship's food synthesizer.
Why it's worth watching: The Orville is an homage to Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, who fawns over all things Trek while also not afraid to make fun of it. It's hard to tell what kind of show The Orville wants to be at some points because it's really trying to be all of them: an interstellar stoner comedy, a sci-fi swashbuckler, a workplace drama, a futuristic Twilight Zone. But that's part of the fun. Season 1 has some bumps, but Season 2, especially the midseason two-parter "Identity" is an improvement. Though the first two seasons aired on Fox, Season 3 will be a Hulu exclusive.
How many seasons: 2
Where to watch: Hulu


The X-Files

What it's about: A pair of FBI agents investigate the paranormal and inexplicable -- UFOs, ghosts, and even cannibals.
Why it's worth watching: It's a classic for a reason. The X-Files set the mold with Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) -- the definitive believer and skeptic, paired up to investigate the unexplained. But the Fox procedural was always too smart to draw a clean line between faith and science; even Mulder wanted proof, and even Scully had her religion. This is the most scientific thing about the science fiction of The X-Files (which is otherwise not all that sciency): The show's heroes are two people willing to upend their entire belief systems to get the truth. Mulder and Scully asked the messy questions, and it changed genre television. -Kelly Connolly
How many seasons: 11
Where to watch: Hulu


Counterpart

What it's about: A government desk jockey (J.K. Simmons) an an office in Berlin learns that an event split the world into two parallel universes, and the two sides are slowly approaching an all-out war against each other. Yikes!
Why it's worth watching: The gimmick gives its wonderful cast (which includes Olivia Williams and Harry Lloyd) the opportunity to play dual roles as each universe has a "counterpart" in the other. Simmons leads the way as his counterpart is a superspy, and watching him play against himself is incredible. Fans of espionage and science-fiction will have their heads full with the intricately plotted and twisty story.
How many seasons: 2
Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video


Black Mirror

What it's about: This anthology series tells different tales each episode about the dangers of technology and the depravities people will use it for. From digital worlds to dark dystopias, Black Mirror will have you second-guessing whether you should cut every cord you own just to be safe.
Why it's worth watching: If you're in the mood to start hating the human race, Black Mirror is the sci-fi show for you. While most of these stories are a little bit depressing (and some are borderline horrific), a few are uplifting enough to cleanse your palate (check out Season 3's "San Junipero" or Season 4's "Hang the DJ" for some heart eyes). The best part about this binge is that while you'll definitely get hooked, the fact that it's an anthology series means you won't necessarily find yourself powering through episodes at 3 a.m. since each episode is a standalone story.
How many seasons: 5
Where to watch: Netflix


Stargate Universe

What it's about: A group of scientists, military personnel and a few civilians accidentally find themselves transported onto an ancient ship, thousands of lightyears from Earth. While stranded in strange galaxies, tensions run high as they attempt to explore the unknown universe and find a way back home.
Why it's worth watching: Out of all the Stargate series that could have made this list, we picked Stargate Universe because it combines all of our favorite sci-fi elements: a brilliant group of stranded strangers, space, time travel, political infighting and terrifying aliens. It's literally a one-stop shop for every nerd-tastic fantasy you've ever had with the bonus of great performances and top-notch storytelling. We do warn you, however, Stargate Universe was canceled after Season 2 and ended on a pretty huge cliffhanger, so you should go into this binge knowing that when you get to the end, you'll want to pull your hair out wishing there was more. You're welcome for the heads up.
How many seasons: 2
Where you can watch: Hulu


Fringe

What it's about: A team of experts led by a kooky old scientist (John Noble), his son (Joshua Jackson), and an FBI agent (Anna Torv) investigate strange occurrences around the country, X-Files style. Their work leads them to discover something entirely new that will change the world forever.
Why it's worth watching: The J.J. Abrams-produced series is one of the best broadcast science-fiction shows of all time, particularly in its first three seasons, and perfected the art of the serialized procedural by weaving the show's deep mythology and excellent character work into weekly standalone stories, making it easy to binge or watch in spurts. And by the time the end of Season 1 starts, you'll have a hard time stopping.
How many seasons: 5
Where to watch: IMDB.tv


12 Monkeys

What it's about: After a deadly virus kills 7 billion people, the survivors living in 2043 send a scavenger named James Cole (Aaron Stanford) to the past to stop the virus from being released in the first place. Naturally, time loops and even forbidden romance get in the way of his mission to save the human race.
Why it's worth watching: 12 Monkeys is a show you have to pay close attention to in order to keep track of the changing timelines and loops, but ultimately the mythology and the world-building are just too good to pass up! Plus, this show has some of the most kick-butt women on TV, which is harder to find than it should be in the sci-fi genre. With the fourth and final season come and gone, you'll be able to binge the whole thing start to finish!
How many seasons: 4
Where you can watch: Hulu


Doctor Who

What it's about: The Doctor, a humanoid alien of an extinct race called the Time Lords, travels the universe in his (or her!) Tardis, a time-traveling spaceship that takes that shape of a phone booth. Together with his (or her!) human companions, The Doctor regularly saves the world from destruction with his (or her!) quick wit and timey-wimey adventures.
Why you should watch: If you're looking for something a little less intense and more whimsical, Doctor Who is the show for you. Typically, each episode travels to a new time period or galaxy (often both) where the Doctor and companions of the moment have wild adventures while escaping the evil clutches of the Daleks and Cybermen. Although, when you least expect it, the show knows just how to hit you where it hurts. So although it's a show of whimsy, be prepared to cry your eyes out too. Jodie Whittaker joined the series as the first female doctor in Season 11.
How many seasons: 12
Where you can watch: Season 12 is streaming on BBC America, previous seasons are for purchase on Amazon Prime. All seasons will be available on HBO Max when it launches in May 2020.

From Dippers to Needlecasting: Here's Your Altered Carbon Glossary


Altered Carbon

What it's about: Far in the future, scientists have found a way to digitize and save human consciousness, allowing people's minds to be copied and transported from one body to another, essentially making humans immortal. When one of the richest men in the universe is murdered -- though his copied consciousness obviously survives -- he hires, Takeshi Kovacs, a mercenary hundreds of years old to figure out who "killed" him. In Season 2, Kovacs, in an entirely new body, searches for his long lost love while investigating a series of new murders.
Why it's worth watching: This futuristic series will have your head spinning with awesome technological advancements and a mystery that's almost too tangled to unravel. The kicker, though, is the flashback portion of the saga that not only ties well into the overall narrative but will have you begging for a spin-off based completely in the past.
How many seasons: 2
Where you can watch: Netflix


The 100

What it's about: Nearly 100 years after nuclear war wipes out the human race on Earth, the only survivors are the members aboard a joint-space station called The Ark circling the globe. When overpopulation becomes a problem, The Ark decides to send 100 teenage delinquents to the ground to see if the Earth is habitable, but these misfits find more than bargained for when they arrive.
Why it's worth watching: Assuming the words "apocalypse" and "teens" didn't get you, The 100 is worth a binge simply for the dynamic storytelling alone. Rather than focus on hot teens running a community, the show hones in on the lengths to which humans will go to stay alive and whether that survival requires you to lose what it is that makes you human. It's a pretty insightful look into the future, and with four seasons (and a fifth currently airing) under its belt, it's a good, long binge to keep you out of the heat this summer.
How many seasons: 6. A seventh and final season begins airing in May 2020.

Now Is the Perfect Time to Watch All Those Shows You've Been Putting Off


Firefly

What it's about: Space cowboys. Enough said.
Why it's worth watching: What list would be complete without the cult classic Firefly? This short-lived series took fans by storm back in 2002, though it was canceled after only 14 episodes. That makes it a quick binge full of shoot-outs and smuggling that will leave you begging for more. If you want an end to the story, you'll have to find the wrap-up movie, Serenity, which is currently streaming through Starz.
How many seasons: 1
Where you can watch: Hulu


Westworld

What it's about: A western-themed amusement park serves as a playground for the ultra-wealthy, but the locals aren't actors -- they're robots. Revolutionary advancements in artificial intelligence technology have allowed for stunningly life-like "hosts" to mimic human behavior and serve as the park's entertainment, but unfortunately these hosts aren't aware that the world they live in (and repeatedly die in) isn't actually real -- or are they?
Why you should watch: Despite having a shaky Season 2, Westworld is a great binge that will keep you on the edge of your seat. You'll also have the added benefit of getting the answers to each season's burning questions much faster than week-to-week viewers, who had to watch and speculate at a much slower speed. So long as you remember that literally anyone can be a robot at any time, you'll enjoy your trip to Westworld.
How many seasons: 3
Where you can watch: HBO Now, HBO Go, Hulu, Amazon Prime


Dark

What it's about: Thanks to a wormhole in the underground caves beneath the local power plant, strange things start happening in the small German town of Winden. Time travel, disappearing children, and family secrets intertwine in a thrilling mystery that spans three generations.
Why you should watch: Dark is Netflix's first German-language Original, meaning you've either got to watch with subtitles or the English dub. Though it may take you a minute to get into it, once you do, you're in for a wild ride. Tangled webs of time travel and family secrets pair well with the show's odd sense of humor, making for a cool mystery that will keep you binging late into the night.
How many seasons: 3
Where you can watch: Netflix


The Expanse

What it's about: Set in a future where humans have colonized the solar system, prejudices have divided humanity into three camps: Earth, Mars, and The Belt (an asteroid belt). But when a mysterious alien technology is discovered and a political conspiracy spanning the solar system begins to unravel, it becomes up to the idealist James Holden to try and save humanity from the potential alien weapon -- and themselves.
Why you should watch: The most intriguing part of The Expanse is the intricate world-building and political machinations that underscore the cool sci-fi stuff like space battles and even gravity torture. The interplanetary conflict at the core of the show's story creates a ton of juicy arcs that all build toward some seriously unpredictable reveals.
How many seasons: 4. Season 5 has been ordered.
Where you can watch: Amazon Prime
