Euphoria: What To Watch If You Like The Popular HBO Series



Euphoria: What To Watch If You Like The Popular HBO Series

Euphoria has truly taken over the world, with its iconic makeup looks and fantastic cast. People from all over tune in weekly to see what’s next in the lives of the characters, with those adventures usually narrated by Rue, a young woman with a drug addiction. 

But, with only two seasons with eight episodes each, binging this show is so easy that you’ll reach the end in no time, looking for more. Fear not, as we have found a good list of shows that might remind you a bit of Euphoria, from their darker storylines to their focus on teenagers. Here are some of the best shows like Euphoria that you can stream right now.  

Genera+ion (HBO Max) 

First up on the list is the HBO Max original series, Genera+ion. This teen show takes place in Orange County, California, and within a conservative neighborhood, we focus in on an ensemble cast of characters who are learning to explore their sexuality, whether that be through relationships or other means, and what that means for their families and personal lives.

While it’s unfortunate that it only lasted for one season, Genera+ion was seriously a great show, featuring some genuinely really good LGBTQ storylines. Like Euphoria, each of these characters is different in their own way and dealing with their own problems, one day at a time. I personally think the kids in this show have a certain innocence that the kids of Euphoria don’t have, but it’s still worth a shot to watch. 

Stream Genera+ion on HBO Max.


Skins (Hulu) 

Next up, we have Skins, from the United Kingdom. In this popular show, we follow teens as they grow up in a tough environment, learning to come into themselves and be their own person despite obstacles that are constantly outside their door. 

Often regarded as the Euphoria for millennials, Skins is a must-watch if you’re a fan of the HBO show. While it’s not as mature as Euphoria is (I mean, Skins was never on HBO, so there’s why), it doesn’t shy from talking about dark subject matter that may sometimes be a bit too taboo to speak about in other teen shows, from mental illness to eating disorders, and sexuality to anything in-between. Plus, you get to see an incredible performance from Nicholas Hoult.

Grand Army (Netflix) 

A one-season show, Netflix’s Grand Army takes place in New York City, specifically the borough of Brooklyn. We follow a group of teenagers who attend a public high school, dealing with social issues that change their lives forever.

Out of many of the shows on this list, I’d say that Grand Army comes quite close to the mature rating that Euphoria has. Again, no one can quite beat Euphoria, but Grand Army comes pretty damn close in that regard, from their discussions on rape culture to their city being the center of a terrorist attack. This show pulls no punches and is a much more serious teen drama – which makes it perfect for fans of Euphoria. 

Stream Grand Army on Netflix.


I Am Not Okay With This (Netflix) 

In this, also one-season, Netflix series, I Am Not Okay With This follows a teenage girl who doesn’t quite fit in and has trouble trying to deal with all these newfound feelings that come with growing up. Slowly, she also starts to realize that she’s not quite like everyone else – meaning she has superpowers. 

Okay, look, this is nowhere near as serious as Euphoria, but I put it here because I feel that everyone, in some way, can relate to what this girl is going through, even if it is her trying to adapt to superpowers. The teens of Euphoria are constantly trying to adapt to being different in this modern world, and that’s what the main character of this show does as well, even if its to a different extreme. 

Stream I Am Not Okay With This on Netflix.

The Sex Lives Of College Girls (HBO Max) 

In this HBO original, The Sex Lives of College Girls follows a group of four girls who are freshmen in college, and are now living together. During their first year, we get to see their exploits as they try to sexually awaken their lives, lose their virginity, find love, and so much more – alongside the struggles college dumps on them. 

For fans of the relationships of Euphoria, I’d think that The Sex Lives of College Girls would be a good option. Don’t get me wrong, many of the couples in Euphoria need couples counseling, in my opinion, but that’s what makes this such a great choice, because it’s a refreshing breath of fresh air with plenty of fun relationships that don’t feel as crazy as the ones on Euphoria. Also, The Sex Lives of College Girls cast is so much fun and super talented. 

Stream The Sex Lives of College Girls on HBO Max.


We Are Who We Are (HBO Max) 

Next up, we have We Are Who We Are. This Italian-American coming of age series follows two high schoolers who just want to carve their own identities and become who they are. The only issue is that they live on an American army base in Italy, which doesn’t necessarily allow for that freedom. 

I mean, in just reading the premise this sounds like a show that’s relatively similar to what many of the characters on Euphoria go through. Learning to love yourself, trying to become a better person, attempting to find love, all of which feels as if it’s impossible thanks to society. That’s what We Are Who We Are explores – albeit in a much less graphic way than Euphoria

Stream We Are Who We Are on HBO Max. 

Everything Sucks! (Netflix) 

Another Netflix original that was canceled way too soon, Everything Sucks! takes place in the town of Boring, Ohio’s Boring High School (which is a legit real place, by the way). For the whole series, we follow mainly two groups of people – the A/V Club and the Drama Club, and the hijinks that ensue. 

While Euphoria is darker in its way of telling its story, the show does revolve around teenagers in high school. If you’re looking for that same feeling without all the mature content, then Everything Sucks! is a safe bet for you. You also get to see Sydney Sweeney pre-Euphoria, who rocks her role amazingly well. I’m still so upset it didn’t get a Season 2.

Stream Everything Sucks! on Netflix.


Yellowjackets (Showtime) 

God, could I go on about this show. Yellowjackets follows a high school soccer team that was on its way to nationals when the plane crashed down in the wilderness. We flash forward between their lives in the forest and their lives now as adults, exposing us to the darkness they had to face when they realized no one was coming for them. 

Now, this is a teen drama that has the mature content you want. While the Yellowjackets cast also features a great ensemble of adult actors who tell the story in the present, the story of the teenagers in the woods is really what makes this show. If you want something that’s more mature but a little less about high school drama, like Euphoria, be sure to check this amazing show. 

Stream Yellowjackets on Showtime.

The End Of The F***ing World (Netflix) 

Next up, we have End of the F***ing World. Yes, that is spelled right. This dark teen comedy follows two teenagers – one who simply wants to get away in life and the other who thinks he’s a psychopath. What happens when these two teenagers go on an adventure that will surely change their lives forever? Craziness. 

The End of the F***ing World is hilarious in all the right ways. From its opening scenes to the continued story, the chemistry that the lead actors have often reminds me of the actors on Euphoria. However, what really makes this a great pick for fans of Euphoria is that while the show is primarily a comedy, it doesn’t shy away from tackling tough storylines very early on in the show, including mental illness, sexual assault, and so much more. It’s a great series that deserved more seasons. 

Stream The End of the F***ing World on Netflix.


Sex Education (Netflix) 

Oh boy, is this a good one. Sex Education is a popular Netflix series that follows teens who are learning all about sex, specifically focusing on Otis, who’s a bit awkward. Despite never having done the deed himself, Otis decides to do something crazy to become popular – set up a sex advice clinic at his school, because he’s gotten good guidance from his sex therapist mom. 

Sex Education is wonderful from head to toe. If you like Euphoria for the number of different characters with interesting personalities, then the Sex Education cast will please you. Every single person in this show has their own story that’s fleshed out over the course of the series, which truly makes this a TV show to remember, along with some truly hilarious moments. 

Stream Sex Education on Netflix.

Freaks And Geeks (Paramount+) 

I’ll never forgive NBC for canceling this show after one season. Freaks and Geeks is your typical high school drama, following the lives of regular teenagers in 1980 as they grow up and learn to deal with problems that they never faced before. 

Does Freaks and Geeks go as dark as Euphoria? Absolutely not. But let me tell you, no matter what generation you’re from, everyone has gone through what these kids are going through, from body changes to learning to adapt to different circumstances. In my opinion, Freaks and Geeks walked so Euphoria could run.

It’s not as intense as Euphoria can get, but it’s still a show that anyone can relate to. Plus, the Freaks and Geeks cast truly has some Hollywood royalty on there that I’m sure you’ll recognize almost instantly, like Seth Rogen and Linda Cardellini. 


Stream Freaks and Geeks on Paramount+.

On My Block (Netflix) 

Last but not least, we have On My Block. This Netflix original takes place in South Central Los Angeles and tells the story of four kids who are entering high school as the best of friends. Over time, some of them start to join other groups, cliques, or have problems, changing their lives forever. 

I think what I like about On My Block in comparison to Euphoria is that both tackle serious situations. Euphoria more or less focuses on how a teen can be self-destructive and push people away, while On My Block deals with a sensitive issue that Euphoria doesn’t dive into as much – how living in a violent neighborhood can change you and make you grow up quicker, and how that can affect your whole life. 

Stream On My Block on Netflix.

With all these amazing shows, it might be hard to pick just one once you’re done with Euphoria. But, you can bet no matter what you pick, it’ll certainly be worth the time to watch. Happy binging!

Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its $70 Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling




Wait, Is Warner Bros Scrapping Its  Million Batgirl Movie? Rumors Are Swirling

After years of anticipation from DC fans, Warner Bros finally found a way to introduce Barbara Gordon to live-action, announcing a solo movie for the hero with the developing Leslie Grace-led film. Batgirl, which finished filming earlier this year, has been scheduled to hit HBO Max sometime this year, however according to a number of new reports, Warner Bros doesn’t want Batgirl to see the light of day. Outlets are reporting that $70 million project is being scrapped after test screenings scared off the studio on the movie. 

Batgirl has been called “irredeemable” by a reported “top Hollywood source” found by The NY Post. Per the report, the movie will be “shelved,” but it has yet to be confirmed by the studio if it’s purely a rumor or a bombshell piece of news for one of Warner Bros’ upcoming DC movies.  

The Wrap backed up this report, sharing it had additionally heard via insiders that the movie “did not work” for studio executives – made by Bad Boys For Life and Ms. Marvel directors Adil El Arbi and Billal Fallah for a reported budget of over $70 million (though it may have ultimately cost the studio $90 million by the time cameras finished rolling). 

The news could perhaps be the product of the recent change in Warner Bros’ leadership, with CEO David Zaslav becoming the new big boss since WB merged with Discovery. There was some rumored talk of the previous WB chair Toby Emmerich considering Batgirl for a theatrical release rather than a HBO Max exclusive, however, but the new reports suggest the film isn’t testing to the level of a big-screen project and may be removed from getting any kind of release. 

Batgirl would not only introduce Leslie Grace’s Barbara Gordon, but is features a stacked cast including the return of Michael Keaton as Batman and J.K. Simmons as James Gordon. Brendan Fraser plays the film’s villain, Ted Carson a.k.a. Firefly. It’s arguably unheard of for a project as high-profile as this one to lose any form of avenue for distribution. 


Apparently, a move like this is not uncharacteristic for Warner Bros’ new CEO, however, who previously shut down the failed streaming service CNN+ weeks after it launched (it reportedly cost $300 million to put together). There is some restructuring of DC projects currently underway behind the scenes, with David Zaslav on the search for a someone to fill a role much like Marvel boss Kevin Feige has at Marvel Studios. 

Coming off San Diego Comic-Con late last month, Marvel Studios announced and showcased a lineup of projects planned until 2025 including two more Avengers films, whilst DC did not bring anything from Batgirl to its panel. Instead, Warner Bros chose to only focus on Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Black Adam, both of which have set release dates later this year. Warner Bros. Discovery is set to report its earnings for this past business quarter on Thursday; it’s possible we’ll learn more then.

High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere




High School Musical: The Musical: The Series: 5 Feelings I Had While Watching The Season 3 Premiere

What time is it? Summer time!

Well, that’s what the students of East High are saying in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. I know, the name is a mouthful, but honestly, this show is a whole lot of fun and if you haven’t watched it, you definitely should. The first two seasons were great, from the songs in Season 1 to the drama in Season 2, and when it was announced that the series would be getting a Season 3 and 4, I was all on board. 

Now that I have watched the first episode of Season 3, I am even more excited for the next episodes to come, and that premiere has me all in my feelings – specifically these five. 


Man, this show makes me so nostalgic for when I was younger. 

Don’t get me wrong, I would never travel back in time to then, just because I was so young and didn’t know half the stuff I know now, but there is just something about listening to the soundtrack of some of these original songs from the High School Musical movies that just get me. While we don’t get many songs in the first episode, we get the classic, “What Time Is It” from High School Musical 2 within the few three minutes of the show and ugh, the memories. 


If you were a tween or kid back in 2007 and watched HSM2 when it premiered on Disney Channel, you know this song just as well as I do. And for years, I sang this song on the last day of school – heck, I still sing it now whenever warm weather comes around and I’m two years out of college. I love this music, and I can already tell from just this first episode that this season is going to make me so nostalgic. 


I’m really curious to see what they’re going to do with this camp in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. 

For those who don’t know, the first two seasons of this series were pretty much based around the first film’s premise. The show takes place in a world where the movies exist, but instead of the actors from the High School Musical cast that we’re familiar with, we are introduced to students who are auditioning for those iconic roles. And over the last two seasons, we’ve watched them grow into brilliant performers while singing in productions of both High School Musical and Beauty and the Beast, with covers and original songs all along the way. 

But the whole entire point of the first two seasons was that this show took place in the same high school where the movies were filmed. So it’s only natural to think that the second season might end up happening at the country club that was in High School Musical 2, but nope – we are at a summer camp, something that was never talked about in the original movies. 

The arrival of everyone coming to this summer camp is fun, but it makes me wonder how they’re going to include the songs from High School Musical 2 into this season when it’s not at the same location as the film, but it’s still interesting to watch, nonetheless. 


Dude, I love Olivia Rodrigo – and I mean that. This girl has done so much these last two years and watching her in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is always a joy. 


But what really makes me so proud of her is that I’m not even just proud of the actress, but the character as well. Nini is this young star who is a little afraid to take these big risks but she does so anyway, knowing that she has this big break she can’t lose, which was the big theme of this first episode. She goes away on this road trip with a producer over the summer so she can record songs, giving her that shot, and I am so proud of her for doing that. 

Olivia Rodrigo plays her perfectly, and while I know that her character was demoted to a guest role thanks to Rodrigo’s budding music career, I can’t help but be proud, because wow, she has blown up. It makes me want to watch her documentary on Disney+ again


I know I said earlier on that I was curious as to how they’re going to really change up this season with this new location. But, about twenty minutes in, I genuinely was feeling eager to see where this show would go – specifically the dynamics of new characters. 

For two seasons, we have pretty much been surrounded by the same characters, and while we have grown to love them, I think this season was the one where we truly needed a change in not only scenery, but characters as well. And this first episode brought a ton of them in. 

One of the scenes that got me really eager to see what happens with these new characters was when Gina, Ashlyn and Kourtney, three clear as day theater kids, find out they have to share a cabin with Gadget (a new character) and two other girls – and you can clearly tell at first that they are not feeling the vibe, and you can almost smell the problems from a mile away. 

That screams great television, and it’s got me wondering how much more drama this show is going to produce over the next episodes with these new dynamics. I’m so eager to see. 



Seeing Corbin Bleu in the premiere episode made me very excited to see where this fictionalized version of him is going to go next. 

Usually, when it comes to the original members from the High School Musical movies, we’ll get some pictures from them from the old high school – like Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron both recently taking pics there in 2022 – but I didn’t think anyone would come back to the show. We had Lucas Grabeel and Kaycee Stroh in Season 1 but no one in Season 2, so I’m super pumped to see Corbin Bleu back for this season.

Not only that, but Jason Earles. Do you guys know who he is? The moment I saw him as Dewey, the director of Camp Shallow Lake, I practically screamed. This man is Disney Channel royalty. He was not only a co-star on Hannah Montana but also on Kickin’ It and I can’t believe he is in another Disney show and it has me so excited. 

I’m not sure how often he and Bleu are going to be on the show, but I know for a fact that those two appearing on that stage has me excited for what this season holds and I can’t wait to see what’s next. Could Zac Efron be next?

What are you guys looking forward to with Season 3 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series? All I know is that if I don’t get a cover of “Fabulous” by Carlos in this season, I will riot. I demand it, Disney+!

The School For Good And Evil: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Netflix Movie




The School For Good And Evil: 6 Quick Things We Know About The Netflix Movie

Book adaptations of big-time novels always seem to go over well with audiences, and have for plenty of years, with movie sagas such as Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings taking over the box office. But, a newcomer is arriving on the movie scene, one which should have been adapted almost as soon as it came out, if you ask me.

The School for Good and Evil, an amazing addition to the fantasy genre, is finally getting its own adaptation into the film world – but not in theaters. However, it will be appearing as a Netflix movie, on the popular streaming website. However, what else do we know about this upcoming film? What is it going to be about? Who is going to be in it? There are plenty of things that you might not know, but we do. Here are some quick things we know about the upcoming Netflix film.

The School For Good And Evil Release Date Is Set For October 21

Mark your calendars, fantasy lovers, as The School for Good and Evil is going to be coming out as part of the 2022 movie release schedule! Announced with the official poster from the Netflix Twitter page, it was confirmed that The School for Good and Evil would release on the popular streaming platform in Fall 2022, specifically on October 21. 

Talk about a great addition to all the fun Halloween movies we’ll be watching during that time of year – I can always use a little good and evil in my life.

The School For Good And Evil Has A Star-Studded Cast

With an adaptation like The School for Good and Evil, we all knew that the cast needed to be amazing. And, luckily, there’s no shortage of amazing additions to this Netflix movie. First, let’s take a look at the two leads characters of the film, Sophie and Agatha, where the story begins. These two roles will be played by Sophia Anna Caruso, known for her role in the Broadway musical Beetlejuice, and Sofia Wylie, who stars on a Disney+  show you really should watch, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.

Wylie is especially excited for her role in The School for Good and Evil. In an interview with MTV, she talked about her part as Agatha and how she’s excited to “bring some realness” to the character that hadn’t been seen before. She described Agatha’s struggles with internal and external beauty through her own experience, saying that it’s something she can relate to and that it’s an important message to teach.

That’s something that I personally can really relate to, that voice inside of your head, how much power it has. I deal with those doubts and those insecurities. And I think I can really bring some realness to Agatha in that sense because I know, as a teenage girl, it can be very difficult to overcome that voice.

Adding on to this cast, Deadline reported that two megastars, Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington, signed on for two of the main roles in the upcoming film. Theron is set to play Lady Lesso, and Washington will portray a teacher at the school, Professor Dovey.

In addition to these two, in another article, Deadline reported that Laurence Fishburne, known for his roles in The Matrix trilogy and many other films, as well as action star Michelle Yeoh, from movies such as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Everything Everywhere All At Once, Crazy Rich Asians, and her TV role in Star Trek: Discovery, have stepped up to be in The School for Good and Evil. Fishburne will play the Schoolmaster – a role that sounds quite fitting for someone of his talents, and Yeoh will portray another teacher, Professor Anemone.

Also for the film, Demi Isaac Oviawe, Kaitlyn Akinpelumi, and Freya Theodora Parks will play Anadil, Dot and Hester, three young women who are a part of The Coven in The School for Good and Evil, as confirmed by a behind-the-scenes look with the author of the original novel, Soman Chainani on YouTube.

Already, this film is shaping up to be filled to the brim with some of the Hollywood elite. I, for one, can’t wait to see what they do with the material they are given, because it’s about to get magical.

The School For Good And Evil Will Follow The Bestselling Book Series

For those who don’t know, The School for Good and Evil is composed of several novels in a series. Netflix confirmed that this new movie will be based on the series by Soman Chainani, and from the premise of the film, it’s looking to be exactly like the first novel.

As confirmed by the description from the trailer for the new movie on YouTube, The School for Good and Evil is going to follow two best friends, Sophia and Agatha, who are swept into a world of trying to balance both good and evil when they are given different roles, but this in turn causes their lives to turn upside down. 

I’m already on board for a story like this. Two opposing personalities who end up being trained in styles that they thought they weren’t aligned with? Thrown into unlikely situations? Fantasy elements? My god, I can almost feel the franchise coming. Netflix has a great addition with this one.

Bridesmaids Director Paul Feig Is Directing The School For Good And Evil

I don’t think there could have been another perfect choice for the director for The School for Good and Evil than Paul Feig. The legendary director has produced some of the biggest comedic hits in the last ten years. For example, Feig directed the smash-hit Bridesmaids back in 2011, the 2016 remake of Ghostbusters, the Emilia Clarke Christmas comedy Last Christmas, the comedy thriller, A Simple Favor, and so many others.

Besides movies, Paul Feig has also directed multiple episodes of several incredible sitcoms, such as The Office, Arrested Development, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock. The School for Good and Evil novels have an amazing comedic element to them, and I can only imagine what a comedic director like Paul Feig will bring to the table in this new film.

Finding Neverland Screenwriter David Magee Wrote The Screenplay For The School For Good And Evil

When it comes to an adapted screenplay, you always have to make sure that you find the right person to do it, because with novels, there are so many details that need to somehow make it into the movie. The School for Good and Evil found its screenwriter in David Magee.


Magee is a perfect choice, because not only has he been around the business for some time, he’s had plenty of experience in writing fantasy, working on films such as the Academy-Award winning Life of Pi, the Disney sequel Mary Poppins Returns, and wrote the screenplay for Finding Neverland, the story of the author who created the legendary character, Peter Pan. Truly, he has great experience up his sleeves, and I’m eager to see what he’ll do with the fantastic story that is The School for Good and Evil.

The School For Good And Evil Has Finished Filming 

As you can expect for a film that already has a trailer, The School for Good and Evil finished production for their film not too long ago. From a tweet on Twitter from Netflix Geeked, it was confirmed back in July of 2021 that filming had wrapped on the film and was entering into the post-production phases. 

Watch The Trailer For The School For Good And Evil 

If you haven’t yet seen the trailer for The School for Good and Evil, be sure to watch it now, as you won’t want to miss out on the magic. 

With an amazing cast, awesome story, and some really cool looking set pieces featured in the trailer, The School for Good and Evil is looking to be an amazing addition to Netflix’s original film line-up. I can’t wait for this movie to pop up as part of the 2022 Netflix movie schedule. I’m practically counting down the days.
