Before the tryptophan from the turkey kicks in, check out TheWrap’s list of shows you can binge in four days over your Thanksgiving weekend. Don’t worry, we have dramas, comedies, action series, sci-fi shows on every platform from Netflix to HBO Go.
“Bodyguard” – The first six episodes of this UK import crossed the pond earlier this month, and you can definitely get through them all quickly. Though we do recommend a few breaks.
“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” – Season 1 of Netflix’s TV adaptation of the Archie Comics character is the show you want if you are looking for a few witchy tricks after all your Thanksgiving treats.
Show: “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” Net: Amazon Prime Video – You can binge through the first season of this Emmy winner while you await the second season drop on Dec. 5.
Show: “House of Cards” Sixth and Final Season Net: Netflix – This is your last hooray with Claire Underwood, so you decide if you wanna gobble up the episodes all at once.
Show: “Insatiable” Net: Netflix – We could make a binging joke here but that’s probably inappropriate. But if you are into the kind of dark humor this show has, you probably already though of one yourself.
Show: “American Horror Story: Apocalypse” Net: FX — The entire 10-episode season will have wrapped by the time you are done with your turkey, so if you wanna wait to dive into this end of days tale then we won’t stop you.
Show: “Pose” Net: FX – Ryan Murphy’s latest FX series was one of the breakout hits of the 2017-18 season. Enjoy the throwback to NYC ballroom culture while you are lounging and lazy.
Show: “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” Net: Hulu — The entire seven season run of this former TGIF staple is available for binging on Hulu. So if you finish up Netflix’s new adaptation and want a lighter take, you got it.
Show: “9-1-1” Net: Fox – This crazy drama’s second year is already underway, but the first season was short enough we bet you can binge all the fresh episodes in a day or two.
Show: “Insecure” Net: HBO – Three seasons worth of Issa Rae’s antics are ready for your viewing pleasure on HBO Go.
Show: “Dietland” Net: AMC – This Marti Noxon series was canceled by the cable network after just one season, but you can enjoy that one season now.
Show: “Sharp Objects” Net: HBO – This limited series is Noxon’s other big project of the year — but the TV adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s debut novel was always intended to be just eight episodes. And that means you can get through the full story with a few days off.
Show: “Patriot” Net: Amazon Prime Video – Seasons 1 and 2 now available, if you are into a dark comedic take on the spy thriller genre.
Show: “Atlanta” Net: FX – We don’t know when Donald Glover’s surrealist comedy will return, but for now you can enjoy the first two installments of the FX series on Hulu.
Show: “Sweetbitter” Net: Starz – If you want some more gastronomic drama while you digest the meal you just ate with your dramatic family.
Show: “Vida” Net: Starz — “Vida” got a second season pickup from the subscription cable channel, so you can enjoy your Season 1 binge, knowing there is more to eat up ahead.
Show: “Game of Thrones,” Season 7 Net: HBO – We don’t have a premiere date for the eighth and final season of David Benioff and D.B. Weiss’ HBO epic, but we know it’s coming in the first half of 2019. So why not revisit last season’s batch of episodes now?
Show: “Friends,” all the Thanksgiving episodes Net: Netflix – Yes, you’ve seen them. But what better time to enjoy some of the best Thanksgiving episodes in sitcom history than Turkey Day?
Show: “Black Lightning” Net: The CW – One of the latest additions to the younger-skewing network’s superhero lineup, “Black Lightning”s second season has just begun, so if you wanna dive into the heroic tale, this is a great use of your downtime.
Show: “Light as a Feather” Net: Hulu — Teen drama sure to help wipe away your own problems and make you worry about theirs — at least for the holiday weekend.
Show: “The Terror” Net: AMC – This drama from Ridley Scott is AMC’s first anthology series, coming back with a brand new tale next year. And though the first season is supposed to be completely independent from the next, the story of a British Royal Navy expedition that went horribly, horribly wrong is worth the binge.
Show: “Handmaid’s Tale” Net: Hulu – Seasons 1 and 2 of Bruce Miller’s TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian story are ready for your streaming pleasure. They are shorter seasons than a broadcast drama — but they will take a few days to get through, seeing as you’ll need a few long breaks to digest the disturbing content.
Show: “The First” Net: Hulu – Sean Penn as an astronaut? Yes, you are definitely here for it.
Show: “The Haunting of Hill House” Net: Netflix — The 10-episode story of the Crain family will have you crying and gasping for hours on end. RIP Bent-Neck Lady.
Show: “The Deuce” Net: HBO – The first 2 seasons of this James Franco-led drama about the sex-trade industry in the heart of New York’s Times Square in the 1970s are worth at least 2 days of your time.
Show: “Stranger Things” Net: Netflix – The third season of the Duffer Bros ’80s-set sci-fi series won’t be back until (probably) summer 2019. So you do have a while if you aren’t all caught up yet. But there is no time like the present to enjoy a blast from the past.
Show: “Castle Rock” Net: Hulu – This haunting series set in the Stephen King universe combines many a story into a very unique first season. You should probably watch it during the day though. Or, you know, with a large group of people you can split some pie with, so it doesn’t get too scary.
