Yellowjackets (Paramount+ & Showtime)
Synopsis: Part survival epic, part psychological horror and part coming-of-age drama, this is the story of a team of wildly talented high school girls’ soccer players who survive a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness. The series chronicles their descent from a complicated but thriving team to savage clans, while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together 25 years later. What began in the wilderness is far from over. Starring Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, with Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis.
The Society (Netflix)
Synopsis: The Society follows a group of teenagers who are mysteriously transported to a facsimile of their wealthy New England town, left without any trace of their parents.

Synopsis: Lost explores the destiny of the passengers of Oceanic Flight 815 who crashed on an island. The survivors not only have to rely on each other, but also cope with the secrets the mysterious island holds. Some become friends, others enemies and some stories remain to be told. There’s much more than meets the eye, as it becomes apparent that everyone is somehow connected and that everyone has a purpose.
Dare Me (Netflix)
Synopsis: Dare Me is an unflinching exploration of volatile female friendships, jealousy, loyalty and the dynamics of power in a small Midwestern town. Peering behind the all-American façade, the series dives into the cutthroat world of competitive high school cheerleading, following the fraught relationship between two best friends after a new coach arrives to bring their team to prominence. Part coming-of-age story, part small-town drama, part murder mystery, Dare Me exposes the physical and psychological extremes that some young women are willing to endure in order to get ahead.
The 100 (Netflix)
Synopsis: It’s been nearly 100 years since Earth was devastated by a nuclear apocalypse, with the only survivors being the 400 inhabitants of 12 international space stations that were in orbit at the time. Three generations later, the survivors number 4,000 — and resources are running out on their dying “Ark” (the 12 stations now linked together and repurposed to keep the survivors alive). Draconian measures including capital punishment and population control are the order of the day, as the leaders of the Ark take ruthless steps to ensure their future — including secretly exiling a group of 100 juvenile prisoners to the Earth’s surface to test whether it’s habitable. No one has set foot on the planet in nearly a century — until now. For the 100 on Earth, the alien planet they’ve never known is a mysterious realm that can be magical one moment and lethal the next.
One of Us is Lying (Peacock)
Synopsis: Based on Karen M. McManus’s #1 New York Times best-selling novel, One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five high schoolers walk into detention and only four make it out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.
