Consider this a learning experience.

If you've been out of your teenage years for a while, you might feel a little lost when it comes to your own little siblings or random references they make on social media.

We don't blame you, it's hard to keep up with everything that's trending and not feel like Steve Buscemi's 30 Rock appearance.

Here are 5 teen dramas you should watch to stay on top of what your peers are actually up to today.


It's not all that new and relevant, but it deals with a lot of issues that teens are still struggling with today.

From self-acceptance to religion to relationships and family, Skam covers it all in a very realistic way. The show is perfect for reminding yourself of how fragile and emotional the teenage years can actually be.

American Vandal

Although the mockumentary that is American Vandal is supposed to make fun of the true crime genre, it actually works like a great documentary on the lives of high school students.

The show welcomes you into the minds of teenagers in a subtle and comedic way that can certainly take you back to your own high school years.

Sex Education

Yes, the show focuses heavily on sex, but so do the teens if we're being honest! Going through puberty can make many teens feel awkward or bad about themselves.

Sex Education takes it upon itself to address this issue through the main characters, Otis Milburn and Maeve Wiley, who set up sexology clinics in the school.


This beautiful and heartfelt story focuses on Charlie Spring, an openly gay student, and Nick Nelson, the rugby player he finds himself falling in love with.

No matter what age you are, you will relate to the characters as they make themselves vulnerable and explore the journey of finding and accepting themselves and each other at a very tender age.

Ginny & Georgia

This show will hit especially hard if you grew up in a family that moved around a lot.

With Ginny, who never felt like she belonged anywhere she and her family lived, you will experience all the ups and downs of settling into a new place, a new school, and a new relationship. All while dealing with a young and reckless adult as a mother.
