Some people just love high school so much that on their free time they want to watch TV shows about it. The main reason why TV shows that circulate around a high school do so well is because the main audience are teenagers.

Glee is a classic to many tv show bingers. This is a bright and bubbly show that’s a sort of coming-of-age slice-of-life story about teenagers coming to terms about who they are and shows them finding a voice for themselves in the world and in high school.
3.) Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Another classic for the tv high school genre. Unlike Glee or Riverdale, this show has it’s roots in the paranormal world. Following teenager Buffy Summers, this show is about her and her friends fighting evil vampires and ghouls while maintaining their high school lives.
Of course, this show is not for everyone. This is an anime about a group of high schoolers that get into a prestigious boarding school, only to be thrown into a game by a stuffed animal in which they have to kill each other to survive. Sort of a Battle Royale type of show. There’s also a game series, along with the anime.
