Chilling Adventures of Sabrina | 2018


Forget what you know about the 1996 sitcom Sabrina. In this dark series, the young witch tries to balance her human side with her infernal one, and her journey is paved with gore, creepy folklore, and typical teenage turmoil.


Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin | 2022


For The Pretty Little Liars fans out there — "A" is back, but this time they're terrorizing a new batch of teenage girls. A mystery person harasses a group of friends in revenge for something that happened 20 years ago. Disclaimer: There’s a lot of carnage (but it will awaken all your PLL nostalgia).

Scream | 2015-2019


This series is just like Wes Craven’s 1996 movie Scream — reinvented as a modern-day series. A killer in a ghost face mask terrorizes the town of Lakewood, and a group of teens work together to find the culprit, but everyone is a suspect.

The Fear Street Trilogy | 2021


The Fear Street Trilogy may not be a series like the rest of these shows, but it is a three-part movie... so it’s sort of like one. This triumvirate takes you on a terrifying journey through time from 1666 to 1994. And it has all the best parts of horror flicks, from slasher gore, creepy camp stories to a Salem-ish storyline.
