While we can all fight over Team Jeremiah and Team Conrad, one thing is for sure –  The Summer I Turned Pretty streaming on Amazon Prime Video is as heartwarming as a cup of cocoa. Jenny Han, the author of both the adapted novels has a way with words which can be seen by the mega success of both To All The Boys I Loved Before franchise as well as The Summer I Turned Pretty. Jenny Han has been in the news for quite some time, not only for her successful novel series but also because she was the mastermind behind the inclusion of some of your favourite songs in The Summer I Turned Pretty. Now that Season 2 is officially in the works, here are five other TV shows you can watch on Netflix while waiting for the return of the Fisher boys.
