Love watching teen drama? Check out these 4 new shows

The Bold Type (Freeform), a show about young adults in the magazine world, was one of the year’s most unexpectedly good shows. Because, hey, teenagers have just as much drama. Here are some other shows about young people we’re looking forward to catching this winter.

Grown-ish (Freeform)

8 p.m., Wednesdays

Just like The Cosby Show did in 1987 with A Different World, Black-ish sends off its oldest kid to college, giving Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi) her own spinoff show. On Black-ish, Zoey was an entitled millennial, glued to her phone, spewing sarcasm and side-eyes. The teenager navigates a new life free from parents at college, and quickly realizes, like all of us, how much she still has to learn.

Also watch:

Alone Together (Freeform, 8:30 p.m., Wednesday): The Lonely Islanders (Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone) bring us a story about Los Angeles millennials, played by stand-up comedians Esther Povitsky and Benji Aflalo. The two misfits proudly share a platonic relationship, which is hilariously too real.

Siren (Freeform, 8 p.m., March 29): This one is about mermaids. But not the glittery-tailed beauties you’re used to. A mysterious girl (Eline Powell) comes back to a coastal town for revenge. And legend has it, the town was once home to mermaids before its founders slaughtered them all for no good reason.

Life Sentence (CW, TBA): For a channel riding the superhero wave hard, Life Sentence is a nice break. Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars) is the protagonist and chatty narrator who finds out she’s cured of terminal cancer. But she soon learns her family hid a lot from her.
