29 TV Friendships That Are Your Squad Goals

Celebrating the best female friendships on the small screen.

Posted on

1. Ann and Leslie: Parks and Recreation

Their friendship was the strongest and most important relationship on a show filled with awesome relationships. One of the most supportive, feminist, smart, AND hilarious depictions of BFFs on TV ever. Submitted by Kirsten King.


5. Khadijah, Max, Synclaire, and Régine: Living Single

"They were tight-knit, honest with each other, hilarious, tremendously supportive even when they didn't get along, and they always had each other's back. They are my squad idols." Submitted by Tracy Clayton.


20. Joan, Maya, Lynn, and Toni: Girlfriends

"Toni, Joan, Lynn, and Maya all had one main goal in life: support one another as they navigated love and the very complex idea of having it all. Through lunches and brunches and some fantastic vacations, the women were girlfriend soulmates who were there for one another even when the laughs were nowhere to be found. The friendship fights registered as realistic, but the ride-or-die quality among them is to be admired." Submitted by Kelley L. Carter.


21. Emily, Hanna, Aria, and Spencer: Pretty Little Liars

"Aria, Spencer, Hanna, and Emily literally have each others' backs in ALL circumstances – even if there is a crazy murder chasing all of them! They always look out for each other on their mission to figure out who A is!" Submitted by Maycie Thornton.


28. Mary Anne, Kristy, Stacey, Claudia, Mallory, Jesse, and Dawn: The Baby-Sitters Club

The show owed a lot of its popularity to the phenomenal book series it was based on – but seeing the beloved friendships on the small screen was still a memorable part of every '90s girl's childhood.
