18 Netflix Original Series to Binge-Watch This Summer

For many, summertime calls for a packed social calendar full of barbecues, road trips, vacations and spending all the time outdoors. For the rest of us, summertime is way more low-key: It’s the perfect time to catch up on all those shows everyone raved about on Twitter for months, including a lot of Netflix originals, but we didn’t have the time to even start them.

Luckily for everyone, Netflix has plenty of original television shows, some of which are either filming the next season or recently dropped a new season. Santa Clarita Diet, starring Drew Barrymore? Yeah, Season 2 recently came out, and if you haven’t started, you have plenty of time to get into it. GLOW, starring Alison Brie? Better watch Season 1 before Season 2 drops 10 episodes on June 29. And let’s not forget about 13 Reasons Why and Dear White People, both of which also recently released second seasons.

And the list goes on and on — from science fiction thrillers to mystery teen dramas and satirical comedy-dramas. Here are 17 Netflix original series to binge this summer.
