Imagine you are a socially inept boy and your mother is a sex therapist… Sex Education hilariously captures teenage awkwardness that we have seen in hit shows before with the likes of The Inbetweeners and has already set itself up to be the next best comedy series.

With the final season airing earlier this year, it really is sad to see these female convicts leave our screens! If you’re not familiar with the series, this comedy follows Piper Chapman, a regular law-abiding citizen who is sentenced to serve time in prison.

The second Spanish show to make the list, Money Heist was only ever intended to be a two part series but we will be welcoming the fourth in 2020! As the title implies, the show is about an elaborate plan to print billions of euros in the royal mint of Spain.

3. 13 Reasons Why

It’s no real surprise that this should make the list with some of the most controversial scenes and topics. 13 Reasons Why is about a teenager’s anguish as he reveals the reasons why his classmate committed suicide, left for him to find in a box after her death.

2. Stranger Things

Yep, we thought it would get the top spot too. That being said, it’s safe to say that after three seasons this show just keeps getting better! We are going to have to wait a while to see Mike, Eleven and the gang again as the next season is set to be released in 2021.

1. Lucifer

Lucifer Morningstar is just your average nightclub owner who is also the Devil. The show follows his adventures as he becomes involved in a murder case and subsequently a consultant to the LAPD. The show was briefly cancelled by FOX after three seasons before being picked up by Netflix for two more seasons in which its viewer-base has only grown.
