Read on to find out our top 20 best fall TV shows!

In this article, we’re highlighting the best fall TV shows to give you that snug autumnal feel. From family dramas to spooky series, this list has it all. And the best part is, they’re all available to stream or on VOD!

20. Best fall TV shows: Pretty Little Liars

Pretty Little Liars was one of Freeform’s biggest hits when it debuted over a decade ago. Following the group of teen girls try to solve mysteries and murders while being harassed by the creepy tech-savvy and omnipresent ‘A’ could be exasperating, but we stuck around to the end because we loved the characters.

I don’t know about you, but teen dramas that focus heavily on school always give me that fall feeling since it was typically when most of us started a new school year. I looked forward to PLL each week while I was in grade school. Plus, PLL always went big with their holiday episodes, even just rewatching their Halloween episodes would be a great way to spend some time. I rewatch “The First Secret” every October!

Pretty Little Liars is available to stream on HBO Max.

19. Best fall TV shows: One Tree Hill

Like PLL, One Tree Hill was also a teen drama that mostly revolved around the core characters and the ups and downs of high school. Also like PLL, OTH later transitioned to adult years in the back half of the series. Actually, OTH was one of the first significant dramas to do so and pull it off successfully as the series continued for five seasons after the time jump. Even though OTH didn’t have a character like A, it still had some of the craziest and most outlandish TV plotlines.

But it also had a lot of heart and got compared favorably to Grey’s Anatomy quite a bit in the early days of both shows. Plus, there’s just something charming about the small town of Tree Hill and its eclectic bunch of characters. And isn’t it time to revisit Brooke Davis and her exceptional character development?

One Tree Hill is available to stream on Hulu.
