This Is Us
If you’re still somehow unfamiliar with the Big Three, now is the time to get acquainted. Or maybe you’re all caught up and want to go back to season one and revel in Beth and Randall’s perfectly imperfect marriage? Whatever the reason, This Is Us has something for everyone—romance, heartbreak, drama, comedy—and ’70s-style dresses that Maddie Townsend would die for. There’s also plenty of mystery, several surprises, and—much like Sweet Magnolias—lots of hot guys.

The Golden Girls
Southern ladies who bond over men, food, and the curveballs life throws at them? Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, and Sophia walked so Maddie, Helen, and Dana Sue could run. Just replace margaritas with cheesecake, and you’ve got yourself 180 episodes of perfection that still holds up today.

Ever since Gilmore Girls came back for a four-part revival in 2016, fans have been asking for more. That seems unlikely at this point considering creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has her hands full with The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, but fans should consider directing their attention to Sweet Magnolias. The series aren’t exactly the same, but they do both feature a charming small town (Serenity/Stars Hollow), a complex mother/daughter relationship (Dana Sue and Annie/Lorelai and Rory), and hilariously nosy neighbors (Mary Vaughn and Peggy/Babette and Miss Patty). Close enough!

While Sweet Magnolias may not make us bawl our eyes out like Parenthood or This Is Us, all three shows are about the family that raised us and the family we choose. They’re also diverse and multigenerational, and they never shy away from important real-life topics. Parenthood went off the air more than five years ago, but the Bravermans can keep us company for 103 episodes—or at least until Sweet Magnolias returns—thanks to Peacock.

Drop Dead Diva
If you love Brooke Elliott on Sweet Magnolias (and who doesn’t?), then catch up with her on the series that made her a star: Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva. The cheeky, entertaining show about a beautiful but shallow woman who dies in a car accident only to have her soul resurface in a whip-smart plus-size attorney also launched the career of Superstore’s Ben Feldman and had big-name guest stars like Kim Kardashian, Rosie O’Donnell, and Joan Rivers.

With nearly 40 TV credits to her name, JoAnna Garcia Swisher is a well-seasoned veteran of beloved shows like Freaks and Geeks, Party of Five, Once Upon a Time, and more. But it's the CW sitcom Reba—where she played Reba McEntire's fictional daughter, Cheyenne—that echoes the feel-good wholesomeness of Sweet Magnolias.

Six seasons in, Black-ish hasn’t lost any steam when it comes to telling funny, timely stories with cultural significance. (Not to mention Emmy love: Anthony Anderson just received his sixth nomination for playing Dre Johnson, while Tracee Ellis Ross scored her fourth as Rainbow Johnson.) While Sweet Magnolias is a much different show, both share a sense of blending family dynamics with comedy and heart.

Dead to Me
The newest show on the list, Dead to Me is the perfect binge if you love wine, The Facts of Life, and brilliant storytelling with a twist. Linda Cardellini and Christina Applegate are perfectly cast as Judy and Jen, two very complex women who become joined at the hip after Jen’s husband dies in a car crash. Much as in Sweet Magnolias, these women would do anything for each other. Bonus points: If you love Maddie Townsend’s house or Helen Decatur’s kitchen, you’ll die for the real estate on Dead to Me.

One of Hallmark’s longest-running series, the feel-good drama stars Meghan Ory as a divorced mom of two daughters who returns to her hometown of Chesapeake Shores, Maryland, to help save the Inn at Eagle Point from foreclosure. Of course, that’s where she runs into her first love, Trace (Jesse Metcalfe), and sparks fly. Just like Sweet Magnolias, the series is based on author Sherryl Woods’s best-selling books of the same name and features a charming small town totally suited for the ’gram.

Fresh Off the Boat
Fresh Off the Boat has given us spectacular ’90s fashion, spot-on pop culture references, and the brilliant Constance Wu and Randall Park as Jessica and Louis Huang, as well as a nuanced look at growing up Asian in America. It’s comfort food at its finest, which Sweet Magnolias fans will appreciate.
