Five Other Netflix Series to Watch if You Enjoy ‘Blood & Water’

After the success of the first season of Blood & Water on Netflix and the cliffhanger it left the audience with, it wasn’t surprising that the streaming giant greenlit a second season. The strength of the series lies in how it reels viewers in its mysteries, coupled with the teen drama trope it explores. The second season picks off where the first season ended and it is pretty much like the first season, a young girl’s search for the truth. Revelations in the second season delineate that there is a bigger power in play and more secrets to unravel. Moreover, even though the second season is a decent watch, it might be the series’ breaking point.

A potential third  season must give answers to all the questions thrown in the mind of viewers, otherwise the series might fall into the category of those TV shows that hold too many mysteries but suffer from flat revealment rather than cause excitement amongst viewers. As we wait patiently for the third season, here are five other Netflix shows to binge watch if you enjoy Blood & Water.
