After a particularly grueling day, there’s no better way to unwind than to to hop on the couch, grab the remote, and binge-watch some mind-numbing series to help you forget your workday blues. Without fail, perhaps the best genre to truly unwind is the classic sitcom. Sure, they may fall into formulaic storylines we recognize now and again, but maybe that isn’t such a bad thing. A little predictability in 2021 is probably what we need after a year that kept us guessing. And these days, you have plenty to choose from, thanks to shows like the Golden Globe-award winning Schitt’s Creek or massive critical success of The Good Place, which have made sitcoms, dare we say, fun again?
Below, 15 of the very best Netflix sitcoms streaming right now to help give you some peace of mind:
When the incredibly wealthy Rose family suddenly loses everything, they are forced to leave the lap of luxury and relocate to Schitt’s Creek—a run-down town they once bought as a joke. The Rose bunch attempts to adjust to their new life, and it’s not pretty.
After being cheated on, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) moves out of her boyfriend’s house and into a loft that she found on Craigslist. Her new roommates? Three single men. What could go wrong?
Hardworking Korean-Canadian immigrants Mr. and Mrs. Kim run a convenience store in downtown Toronto with their two kids. Socially progressive and full of dry humor, Kim’s Convenience proves that everyday life is more entertaining than we think.
If you think your family is dysfunctional, you’ve never met the Bluths. With their family business destroyed and their assets frozen, Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) is their only hope…and source of sanity.
In Northern Ireland in the ’90s, high school student Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson) and her friends are, at best, incredibly awkward. Full of traditional teen gracelessness, Derry Girls will have you reminiscing about life as a 16-year-old…or leave you very happy you’re no longer a teen.
What do a mom, a phony lawyer, and a self-centered business C.E.O. all have in common? They’re all stuck in community college. Lucky for us, their misery makes for six seasons of binge-worthy episodes.
Santa Clarita Diet
Married realtors Sheila (Drew Barrymore) and Joel (Timothy Olyphant) have their world flipped upside down when Sheila dies… for a minute, that is. When she wakes up, she’s no regular mom: she’s an undead mom, and she’s having trouble curbing her appetite.
A satirical spin off the true-crime genre, American Vandal follows a high school student investigating the motives behind an expensive crime. Can he catch the murderer spray painter?

Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie (Lily Tomlin) could not be more different. But after finding out that their husbands have been romantic together for the past twenty years, they form an unexpected, but much needed friendship.
The Good Place
The Good Place takes all your questions about the afterlife and takes them up a notch. Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) is vain, rude, and downright unpleasant, but people can change, right?
This Netflix original is the perfect mix of comedy, drama, and female empowerment, with the added benefit of knockout actresses like Allison Brie and Betty Gilpin.
Tia and Tamera Mowry star as twins separated at birth in this classic sitcom. An oldie but a goodie, Sister, Sister will make you wish you had a long-lost identical twin.
