Coincidentally, the eighth and ninth most popular shows both include stories about teenagers. But, they’re not so family friendly. First,  Sex Education delves into a teenager’s adventures in starting a sex therapy clinic at his high school. The controversial 13 Reasons Why focuses on a girl’s suicide and its reasoning.

Raising Dion rounds out the list, as the second comic-book based series. To summarize, this drama focusing on a single mom raising a son with superhero-like powers. Binge this series full of secrets, family struggle, and a little bit of magic.
