To tide you over, we have compiled a list of the best series for you to binge next.

Season three of the show ended with so many questions, and yet, it’s been over a year with only small teases and sparse pieces of news.
As fans patiently wait for season four to hit their screens, the first three are available on Netflix.
Shadowhunters has had a cult-like following (Picture: Freeform)The supernatural drama premiered in 2016, going on to win a clutch of awards including the GLAAD award for outstanding drama series due to its inclusive representation of the LGBTQ+ community.
