If you get excited whenever the Netflix montage comes on, you’re reading the right article. You cannot deny that over the years, Netflix has made up a huge part of our lifestyle both as a medium for entertainment, as well as a cultural symbol (Hello Netflix and chill).


Nowadays, however, with the ongoing pandemic and the implementation of the lockdown, and with more free time on our hands, our bond with the streaming app online-has tightened. And in a good way too.

But there seems to be a problem. It’s somewhat difficult finding that perfect series which you can enjoy. Sometimes, it could take hours (no joke), searching for the appropriate title and that sucks a lot.

So if you spend hours scrolling through the Netflix feed in search of something interesting to watch, look no further as we’ve taken the pains (and pleasure), to bring you a list of television series you’re sure to enjoy on the online streaming platform this weekend.

  • Sweet Magnolias

Before diving into the sweet world of Serenity (the plot of this web television series), here’s one thing you should keep in mind. You’ll be wanting more. 

The series which was just released in Nigeria a couple of days ago has only one season; comprising ten episodes. This means that while you may thoroughly enjoy the storyline, you’d have to put a pause on knowing how the story continues after the tenth episode of season one.

Is season 2 confirmed yet? There’s yet to be a confirmation. However, we’re hopeful the creator Sheryl J. Anderson and the crew of the series get to the public about this development soon.

  • The Get Down

If you’re into musicals and the 1970s, then you’ve got to check out The Get Down. The premise is set in The Bronx New York and follows the evolution of hip-hop and disco music from the eyes of a group of teenagers.

The central focus of the series is on a teenage poet Zeke a.k.a MC Books, his friends, their families and his love interest and talented singer, Mylene.

  • Never Have I Ever

In this series which premiered only earlier this month in Nigeria, Devi, a 15-year-old is determined to change her social status in her new year at High School.

The series will follow her adventures as she faces grief, identity and her Indian heritage as well as new developments from her friends, school mates, and family.


If you’re a sucker for high school comedy series, then check out Never Have I Ever. 

  • Stranger Things

Science fiction fans holler!

They’re no words to describe Stranger Things other than ‘awesome’. This series created by the Duffer Brothers follows the strange supernatural events which occur in the fictional serene town of Hawkins after a little boy, Will Byers, goes missing.

Through the eyes of a handful of teenagers, we follow the unveiling of the Upside Down; an alternate dimension.

  • Workin’ Moms

This Canadian series is ideal for anyone who enjoys comedy-dramas and knows a thing or two about the struggles of being a mother.

This sitcom series which only premiered on Netflix Nigeria last year follows the lives of several women dealing with the challenges of being working mothers.

We’ll put a stop to the suggestions for now. Which of these series would you be watching soon?
