The Best Comedy Shows on Netflix Right Now

In the mood for laughs? We (and Netflix) have you covered. From classics like The Office to quirky series Trailer Park Boys and The Inbetweeners — not to mention great Netflix originals like GLOW — below you’ll find a list of shows that might make for great discoveries or even comfort TV to watch again and again.

This list will continue to grow, but for now, check out our list of the best comedy shows on Netflix below, and let us know some of your other favorites in the comments.

RELATED: The Best Drama TV Shows on Netflix


Chappelle’s Show

Created by: Dave Chappelle

One of the most influential comedy shows of the 21st century, Chappelle’s Show holds up as an incredible (and incredibly funny) sketch comedy series from Dave Chappelle. The comedian’s knack for walking right up to the line but never crossing it is his secret weapon, and Chappelle’s Show is as much a social commentary as it is a comedy series. You’ll only find the first two seasons on Netflix, as Chappelle successfully lobbied the streaming service to not carry the abbreviated third season, during which Chappelle exited abruptly and Comedy Central continued with the show anyway. — Adam Chitwood


30 Rock

Created by: Tina Fey

Cast: Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jane Krakowski, Tracy Morgan, Jack McBrayer, and Scott Adsit

If you’re in the mood to laugh extremely hard, watch 30 Rock. This Emmy-winning NBC comedy series ran for seven seasons and throughout its run was lauded for its insane joke-per-minute ratio. The story was partially inspired by Tina Fey’s time at SNL as she plays the head writer of an SNL-like show where she has to juggle the egos of her stars, the stubbornness of her writing staff, and the corporate nature of her boss. This show is not just incredibly funny and fun, but also tremendously rewatchable. – Adam Chitwood

Happy Endings

Created by: David Caspe


Cast: Eliza Coupe, Elisha Cuthbert, Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally, Damon Wayans Jr., and Casey Wilson

If you’re tired of binge-watching Friends or The Office or Parks and Rec for the thousandth time, try something new with Happy Endings. This ABC sitcom only ran for three seasons, but got the “Friends vibe” spot on albeit under the guise of a single-camera comedy. The story follows a group of friends living in Chicago, two of whom are in a relationship, and two of whom just broke up. The laughs come more from character interactions and behavior than flat-out jokes, which thus makes you as a viewer incredibly invested in the emotions and stories of these central characters. – Adam Chitwood

Creator: Dan Harmon

Cast: Joel McHale, Donald Glover, Alison Brie, Chevy Chase, Danny‌ Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Gillian‌ Jacobs, Jim Rash, Ken Jeong, John‌ Oliver

If you’re down for a comedy show with a meta-bent, tons of hijinks, and a bevy of episodes that are love letters to iconic movies and TV shows from the past, then Dan Harmon’s Community is for you. The NBC series began as the story of a lawyer who’s forced to go to community college because he faked his degree, but it quickly evolved into something more complicated, more emotional, and more inventive. Said lawyer (played by Joel McHale) strikes up a complicated companionship with his study group, and together they try to make it out of this community college alive. The seeds of Harmon’s knack for dark genre storytelling in Rick and Morty can be glimpsed here, but what holds Community together is, well, a sense of community among its characters, sentimentality be damned. All six seasons are currently streaming, but if you want a cheat sheet check out Greg’s fantastic rundown of the best Community episodes. – Adam Chitwood


New Girl

Created by: Elizabeth Meriwether

Cast: Zooey Deschanel, Jake Johnson, Max Greenfield, Damon Wayans Jr., Lamorne Morris, and Hannah Simone

One part Friends, one part Happy Endings, but all parts delightful, New Girl is a great comfort watch sitcom. The FOX series debuted in 2011 and started as the story of an offbeat teacher (Zooey Deschanel) who moves to LA and begins living with three men. But quickly the show morphed into a Friends-like relationship comedy, complete with its own will they/won’t they couple at its core. The improvisational style led to some off-the-cuff iconic moments and Max Greenfield is a darn delight, and while the show probably ran a little long, it remains a great show to watch if you’re in need of a pick-me-up. – Adam Chitwood

Schitt’s Creek


Created by: Daniel Levy and Eugene Levy

Cast: Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy, Emily Hampshire, Chris Elliott, and Jenn Robertson

If you want to watch a TV show that’s bound to make you feel happy and warm, watch Schitt’s Creek ASAP. The Emmy-winning Canadian series follows a wealthy family who loses everything and is forced to move to a tiny, backwoods town where they own a rundown motel.They slowly begin to accept their new lives and even love their new town and its citizens, despite their many, many quirks, and it’s that focus on humanity that really makes this one special. This is the perfect feel-good TV. – Adam Chitwood

I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson

Creators: Tim Robinson and Zach Kanin

Cast: Tim Robinson


If you’re into sketch comedy shows like Chappelle’s Show or Nathan For You, then Netflix’s original sketch series I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson is appointment viewing. This is a deeply werid and hilarious romp fromthe mind of Tim Robinson, a former writer on Saturday Night Live who brings his unique comic voice to the screen in a series of bizarre sketches that will leave you hurting from laughing so hard. – Adam Chitwood

Big Mouth

Created by: Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flacket

Cast: Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Jessi Klein, Jason Mantzoukas, Jenny Slate, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, and Jordan Peele

The animated Netflix original comedy Big Mouth is both incredibly dirty and incredibly sweet. The show is an unabashed look at life as an adolescent, with a particular focus on the changes that occur at the onset of puberty. Loosely inspired by the experiences of the show’s creators, the main characters are seventh graders who struggle with everything from growth spurts to horniness, with the latter personified by the “Hormone Monster” who arrives to guide them through their transition to teenaged life. It’s wildly colorful and inventive, and genuinely informative as it pulls no punches in discussing taboo subjects that are relevant to all pre-teens at some point in their lives. And in that way, it’s kind of ideal viewing with youngsters of your own, as long as you’re OK with having some very frank discussions about the human body and sexuality. – Adam Chitwood



Created by: Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch

Cast: Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Sydelle Noel, Brittney Young, Marc Maron, Britt Baron, Kate Nash, Gayle Rankin, Kia Stevens, Jackie Tohn, and Chris Lowell

If you’re looking for a comedy that toes the line between comedy and drama, I highly recommend GLOW. Based on a real-life event, the story chronicles a fledgling professional wrestling promotion called the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, as various aspiring actresses and women from all backgrounds take a stab at this entirely new field. Marc Maron plays the schlock B-movie director tasked with turning GLOW into a show for television, Alison Brie is a theater nerd and aspiring actress taking it all way too seriously, and Betty Gilpin plays Brie’s former friend and soap opera star who becomes the centerpiece of the wrestling event. The 80s setting provides much soundtrack and costume fodder, and while the show only lasted three seasons, the series gets better and better. – Adam Chitwood

The Good Place

Created by: Michael Schur

Cast: Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto, and D’Arcy Carden


If you’re wondering why there aren’t more shows like Parks and Recreation or The Office for you to watch, allow me to point you in the direction of The Good Place. The NBC series hails from Parks and Rec creator Michael Schur but combines his sense of humor with a highly serialized premise that will have you incredibly engaged in where the story’s going. The show takes place in an afterlife where Eleanor Shellstrop (Bell), a recently deceased woman who lived a selfish, spiteful life, has ended up in the “good place” by mistake. With the help of her appointed soulmate Chidi (Harper), she tries to learn how to be a better person as we get flashbacks to Eleanor’s life and the lives of those around her. Meanwhile, the architect of the good place, Michael (Danson), tries to figure out why everything in this utopia is going haywire. Tons of suprises ensue on top of some fantastic comedy and, shockingly, really thought-provoking philosophical storytelling about the nature of morality and what it means to be “good.” And, importantly, it builds to a really satisfying series finale. – Adam Chitwood


Created by: Will Sharpe

Cast: Julian Barrett, Olivia Colman, Daniel Rigby, Sophia Di Martino

A dark, quirky British comedy whose cast is led by The Mighty Boosh’s Julian Barrett and Oscar-winner Olivia Colman? You need not twist my arm! But Flowers is not a show that is immediately easy to like, but is a reward for those who stick with it. It initially has the trappings of a classic black comedy — the opening scene is of Barrett’s children’s book author Maurice trying to hang himself and the branch breaking to save him— but as it continues it reveals itself more as a closed-in emotional horror. It is also a series that intensely depicts ongoing struggles with mental illness.

The off-putting Channel 4 series, which runs for 2 seasons of 12 half-hour episodes on Netflix in the U.S., focuses on the Flowers family. There’s the aforementioned author Maurice, who created a dark, Edward Gorey-esque book series called Grubbs, and who is experiencing a major depressive episode. His upbeat wife, Deborah (Colman) can’t understand why her family is constantly going off the rails, and she flirts with local builders trying to win back some of the attention her gloomy husband no longer provides. The couple have 25-year-old twins who live at home with them: tinkerer and failed inventor Donald (Daniel Rigby), and Amy (Sophia Di Martino), a reclusive goth musician. The setup is already one full of cartoonish personalities, including Japanese illustrator Shun (played by creator Will Sharpe), but while the characters are large and their bust-ups are always massively dissonant, underneath the noise Flowers hits on some intense truths.


A true auteur with a unique vision, it is exactly Sharpe’s woozy artistry and gut-wrenching illustrations of an out-of-control mind that make Flowers such an absorbingly uncomfortable watch. It’s not meant to encapsulate every experience, but it investigates difficult emotions from a variety of sources in ways that make them recognizable, if extreme examples, of personal trials. — Allison Keene

Sex Education

Created by: Laurie Nunn

Cast: Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Emma Mackey, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Alistair Petrie

For most people, being a teenager is awkward, weird, random, and confusing. Netflix’s series Sex Education, created by Laurie Nunn, not only understands that but leans into it completely. The show stars Asa Butterfield as Otis, a sixth former (high schooler, for Americans — the series is set in the UK) who starts an underground therapy clinic for his peers. Or, as one classmate describes him, he is “that weird sex kid who looks like a Victorian ghost.” — Allison Keene


Russian Doll

Created by: Leslye Headland, Natasha Lyonne, and Amy Poehler

Cast: Natasha Lyonne, Greta Lee, Yul Vasquez, Charlie Barnett, and Elizabeth Ashley

If you like your comedy on the darker side, with a sci-fi twist, check out Russian Doll. This propulsive series from Natasha Lyonne, Amy Poehler, and Leslye Headland, is a brilliant tale of morality and mortality that finds an expert balance between sincerity, cutting comedy, and wild genre flourish. In the first episode, we meet Nadia (Lyonne); an acerbic, chain-smoking software designer in rockstar duds gets trapped a time loop that film fans will quickly recognize; a Groundhog Day rinse-repeat format, where the protagonist is forced to learn a life lesson to break the loop.

If you think the time-loop concept is over-familiar, Russian Doll is way ahead of you. It’s a show that recognizes what it owes to Groundhog Day and tips its hat all along the way. It’s also chock full of twists and turns that subvert expectations at every corner, until it all comes crashing down in the emotionally cathartic (and satisfying) finale. – Adam Chitwood


Trailer Park Boys

Created By: Mike Clattenburg

Cast: John Paul Tremblay, Robb Wells, Mike Smith, John Dunsworth, Patrick Roach

Fair warning: You will either love Trailer Park Boys or you will hate it. Its minimalistic hand-held camera style and improvisational dialogue is particularly halting and jerky in its early seasons, but once it settles in, the show develops into a bizarrely meta world that has spawned 10 seasons, 3 movies and a live tour. Mike Clattenburg’s series, which launched in 2001 and has been running off and on ever since, follows the exploits of two dwellers of the Sunnyvale Trailer Park in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia — Julian (John Paul Tremblay) and his best friend Ricky (Robb Wells) — as they try and clean up their lives after a stint in prison. It doesn’t work, and the two are constantly getting involved in crazy schemes with their friend Bubbles (Mike Smith, sporting huge Coke-bottle lenses) and other colorful characters, while trying to steer clear of the petty trailer park supervisor Jim Lahey (John Dunsworth) and his perpetually shirtless assistant Randy (Patrick Roach).

Make no mistake, these are Canada’s ultimate rednecks, and there is a ton of booze, weed, gunfire, and idiocy that fuels all of the show’s plots. Still, it’s hard not to get caught up in Julian and Ricky’s stories, especially since the two actors have such a fantastic rapport, and Ricky’s malapropisms never fail to delight. There are lots of catchphrases to latch onto, and the show never ceases to escalate its audacious humor, while never acknowledging it is anything other than real. Trailer Park Boys is not for everyone, but for some, there are few things better than having out with these sh— birds. — Allison Keene


BoJack Horseman

Created By: Raphael Bob-Waksberg

Cast: Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, Paul F. Tompkins, Aaron Paul

The washed-up celebrity, as a character, has never felt quite so potently empathetic as it has in the animated personage of BoJack Horseman, the erstwhile star of 1980s sitcom Horsin’ Around, voiced with stinging desperation and cynicism by Will Arnett. Horseman’s attempt at a comeback is the focus of the first two seasons of Netflix’s most ambitious series since Orange Is the New Black, and creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg makes the quite literal horse-man’s addiction to fame, attention, and self-involvement into a melancholic vision of a depleted life. The series also doubles as a scathing indictment of Hollywood and its shallow machinations, but Bob-Waksberg, along with his writers and animators, balances these blue, painful thematic concerns with a vibrant animation style and varied sense of character design, to say nothing of the bounty of dry witticisms. Visually and tonally, Bojack Horseman toes a strange line, but even its oddest moments and creations hide an endearing undercurrent of visceral feeling, evoking a landscape of wounded egos, calcified obsessions, and a few artists trying frantically to make something worth a damn. — Chris Cabin

Documentary Now!

Created by: Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers, and Rhys Thomas

Cast: Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, and Helen Mirren


One of the most delightfully pleasant surprises of 2015 was the IFC comedy series Documentary Now!, which is the brainchild of Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Seth Meyers, and Rhys Thomas. The conceit of the series is something of a mockumentary anthology, in which each half-hour episode takes on the format of a famous or groundbreaking documentary genre and is given the comedy treatment via Hader and Armisen. The result is a series of hilarious installments that tackle everything from Grey Gardens to Wild Wild Country to The Thin Blue Line to Behind the Music, but perhaps the show’s magnum opus (at least thus far), is the tremendous VICE-spoofing installment “DRONEZ: The Hunt for El Chingon.” Documentary Now! is a must-watch, plain and simple, especially if you happen to be of the cinephile persuasion. – Adam Chitwood

The End of the F***ing World

Created by: Charlie Covell

Cast: Alex Lawther, Jessica Barden, Gemma Whelan, Steve Oram

On premise-level alone, The End of the F***ing World has most teenage romances beat by a mile. Alex Lawther’s James is almost positive that he’s a serial killer and when Alyssa (Jessica Barden in a lively breakout performance) takes an interest in him, he thinks he’s found the perfect first victim. In essence, they both want release from the bonds of society and their bodies, with Alyssa seeking that release through exploration and confrontation while James seeks the same through destruction and rejection of humanity. When they impulsively take off together on a road trip, however, the dynamics get a bit more complicated and yield surprising insights. Early on, there’s a fear that the show might veer too hard into the cutesy, but the actors, including Steve Oram of Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers, and the writing consistently evade letting the gooey overwhelm the unseemly. If the series is given a second season, the creative team might do well to push the story into darker terrain but for now, it’s the kind of engagingly morbid, funny, and surprisingly moving show that Netflix devotees should make time for. — Chris Cabin


Arrested Development

Created by: Mitch Hurwitz

Cast: Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, David Cross, Jeffrey Tambor, and Jessica Walter

Surely one of the best sitcoms ever made, Arrested Development was far ahead of its time when it debuted in 2003. Its wit and wry sense of humor now feels in lockstep with the modern state of the genre, but at the time it was incredibly different, which led to an early cancellation. But Netflix revived the series in 2013 to mixed results, with credit going to Hurwitz for at least trying something different than before. Regardless of how you feel about Seasons 4 and 5, the show’s previous episodes are undoubtedly some of the silliest, smartest, and funniest TV comedy ever produced. – Adam Chitwood

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Created By: Tina Fey & Robert Carlock


Cast: Ellie Kemper, Jane Krakowski, Tituss Burgess, Lauren Adams, Sara Chase

If the offbeat and goofy sensibility of 30 Rock tickled your funny bone, you’re going to want to watch Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. This was the next series from 30 Rock showrunners Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, and for four seasons it delightfuled in fast-paced jokes and outrageous stories. The show follows Ellie Kemper’s titular character, a woman who was held captive for years in an underground bunker and is now trying to start her life anew in New York City. —Adam Chitwood

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.
