30 Streaming Shows for Teens During Quarantine

We all have a lot of time on our hands right now with all the #StayAtHome orders around the United States.I am grateful for streaming TV because my teens are constantly BORED.  While I don’t encourage TV watching all the time, right now I’m making exceptions.

People ask me a lot about Streaming Shows for Teens because even though they are doing school at home, they still have a lot of free time.

If you have a teen and they are looking for something good to stream, see the list below of 30 popular Streaming Shows Teens that my teenager Holly put together.  She even included the ratings since the age group of teens is pretty wide.  These are all on Netflix.  Check back for other streaming services in the weeks to come. It’s worth noting that much of the content on Netflix is geographically restricted so you may want to make sure you check for the best vpn for netflix first. A suitable VPN will unblock international content and also protect your personal information.
