7. This is us

I can't believe we are already in season 5, if you haven't watched it yet is not too late to start and fall in love with each of the characters and the very original way to tell their family story.

This series is based on the book Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman by Lindy West. Shrill depicts an overweight woman who wants to change her life but not her shape.

The series is about the struggle of American feminists for the equality amendment to the American Constitution in the 1970s. The focus is on those women who were at the forefront of the fight for equality at the time.

The books are incredible, the first season is incredible and I genuinely can't wait to dive in this one!

15. Workin' Moms season 4

After maternity leave, it's time for four moms to return to work while navigating bosses, kids, love and life in modern-day Toronto.
Funny, real, relatable... can't get enough of it!

16. Grey's anatomy season 16
