Animal Kingdom | Amazon Prime Video
Adapted from the 2010 Australian film of the same name, this TNT series follows a teen orphan who moves in with the grandmother (Ellen Barkin) and uncles he hardly knows. That’s already mysterious, but what makes Animal Kingdom even more intriguing is that his family is a crime ring run by his calculating—and seductive—gram-gram.
Stream Animal Kingdom on Amazon Prime Video.
Panic | Amazon Prime Video
In Panic, recent high school graduates participate in a secret annual series of potentially deadly dares for $50,000 and a chance to escape their dreary small-town existences. It’s tense, it’s mysterious, and it’s a terrible alternative to community college.
Stream Panic on Amazon Prime Video.
Yellowjackets | SHOWTIME
Yellowjackets is the story of four women who survived their high-school soccer team’s plane crash—and a mysterious 19-month period stranded in remote wilderness. Now adults, they’re forced to confront the ordeal—which may have involved cannibalism—when strangers come sniffing around.
Stream Yellowjackets on SHOWTIME®.
The Wilds | Amazon Prime Video
A group of teen girls is stranded on a remote island when their plane crashes. Déjà vu? Nope. This group of girls was en route to a female-empowerment retreat, not a soccer tournament like in Yellowjackets. And the crash wasn’t accidental.
