NETFLIX & CHILL! Here Is What To Watch on Netflix As Coronavirus Hits Hard

If you’re able to practice social distancing in the weeks ahead, as the coronavirus pandemic continues, chances are you’re going to blow through the leftovers on your DVR pretty quickly.

We’re here to help! Below, a list of all the new series and old favorites PEOPLE editors are binging while we ride the situation out from home.

New Girl (Netflix)
“There’s nothing better than bingeing a show about a gal living in an apartment with three guys while you’re stuck hanging out in your apartment … with your three guy roommates. It’s funny, relatable and reminds you that having roommates is kind of the best — especially when you can play a game of True American.” — Maggie Dickman, Associate Audience Editor

Soundtrack (Netflix)
“The Netflix romance series, from Gossip Girl executive producer Joshua Safran, got a bit buried when it was released during the holidays — so much so that plans for a second season were scrapped. But now is the perfect time to discover for the first time the magical 10-episode show, which follows Callie Hernandez and Paul James as star-crossed lovers navigating through the ups and downs of their relationship in Los Angeles. With a supporting cast featuring standouts Jenna Dewan and Megan Ferguson, it’s a show filled with twists, turns, and (as its title implies) a lot of music. In fact, each episode finds the characters all lip-sync along to songs from the soundtrack of their inner monologues, from artists like Sia, Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Amy Winehouse, Demi Lovato, Robyn, Katy Perry, Neil Diamond, The Weeknd and more. It’s a fabulous and fun convention that not leads to elaborate performance numbers, but also will make it impossible for you to not picture yourself doing the same thing every time your favorite song comes on.” — Dave Quinn, Writer/Reporter

Sex and the City and Curb Your Enthusiasm (Netflix and HBO)
“In tough times you need to escape into a fun light-learned world and both these shows transport you away and make you giggle.” — Dan Wakeford, Editor-in-Chief

Sex Education (Netflix)
“If you haven’t already watched season 1, I’m actually jealous: You’ll have double the delightful episodes to keep your spirits up. Sex Education follows a teenager named Otis (Asa Butterfield) whose mother, played by the magical Gillian Anderson, is a sex therapist. With everything he’s learned from the oversharing at home, Otis becomes the go-to guy for advice on sexual issues at his high school. The series is laugh-out-loud funny, while still full of heart, sensitivity to real issues, and loveable, layered characters. And don’t get me started on the quirky fashion!” — Breanne L. Heldman, Senior Editor, TV

Gilmore Girls (Netflix)
“Watching Gilmore Girls is my version of self-care. The characters are quirky, yet loveable, the dialogue is super-sharp and the setting (a fictional Connecticut town called Stars Hollow) is completely magical.” — Andrea Lavinthal, Style & Beauty Director

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You (Netflix)
“The sweetest teen romance since Sixteen Candles, with an independent heroine you can’t help but cheer for.” — Sam Gillette, Writer/Reporter, Books

I Am Not Okay with This (Netflix)
“If you’re anything like me and feel guilty taking too many long breaks while working from home, this show works as a perfect self-timer. It’s only seven episodes, and each one caps at around 20 minutes, which gives you just enough time to reset your brain before getting back to work. Based on a Charles Forsman graphic novel, the show features superpowers, awkward coming of age stories and a whole lot of teenage angst. Think Stranger Things but with even more nods to John Hughes.” — Georgia Slater, Digital News Writer
