With the new school year starting, it is time for college students to get back to their roots.
Netflix binge-watching is an important part of college culture. While it is an entertaining pastime, a recurring problem is running out of shows to watch.
Do not worry: Netflix was prepared for that and is releas- ing multiple new seasons of var- ious shows this fall.
