Netflix

Stranger Things is back! Netflix has a pretty decent lineup for the month ahead (including new episodes of Riverdale and Designated Survivor) but let's be honest, we're all just holding out for Stranger Things Season 2.

Here are some of the highlights:

Stranger Things: Season 2

When a young boy vanishes, a small town uncovers a mystery involving secret experiments, terrifying supernatural forces and one strange little girl.

Riverdale: Season 2

If Jason Blossom’s murder revealed the slimy underbelly beneath Riverdale’s surface, as we enter season two, the shooting of Fred Andrews threatens to plunge the entire town into utter darkness.

Psycho

When a larcenous real estate clerk goes on the lam with a wad of cash and hopes of starting a new life, she ends up at the notorious Bates Motel.

Designated Survivor

With the conspiracy more alarming than ever, a fiery lawyer joins President Kirkman's staff and Agent Wells forms an alliance with a British spy.

    Rick and Morty finishing is not a highlight. :(
