This ridiculous comedy about a girl group who decides to reunite when they’re all middle aged with adult responsibilities is a hidden gem that moves to Netflix for Season 3. In the six episode season, they’re hitting the road for a tour, but of course, they have no plan to speak of.

April: Star Trek: Discovery - Paramount+
