    10 Shows To Watch If You're As Disappointed By, Yet Oddly Obsessed With, "Cruel Summer" As I Am

    Why, Jeanette? Whyyyy?

    If you've clicked on this post, that means that you've either spent the last 10 weeks watching (read: obsessing over) Freeform's newest teen drama Cruel Summer...or you've at least heard of it.

    And if you're in either of those two categories, you might know that the season finale, which just aired, was full of some earth-shattering plot twists, particularly the one in the last two minutes of the episode.

    It was just announced the show has been renewed for Season 2! But that means waiting a whole year before engrossing ourselves in Skylin, Texas circa '93-'95. Here's a list of shows that might keep you satiated between now and then:

    1. Dare Me (2019–2020)

    2. Veronica Mars (2004–2019)

    3. Pretty Little Liars (2010–2017)

    4. Finding Carter (2014–2015)

    5. Riverdale (2017–Present)

    6. Gossip Girl (2007–2012)

    7. One Tree Hill (2003–2012)

    8. Tell Me Your Secrets (2021–Present)

    9. Friday Night Lights (2006–2011)

    10. The Sinner (2017–Present)
