March 1 (UPI) -- Euphoria's Season 2 finale aired Sunday, and viewers are still recovering from the events of the action-packed episode. There was a 2 1/2-year gap between Seasons 1 and 2. Maybe the wait won't be so long for the next.

In the meantime, here are 5 teen dramas to satisfy your love of young adult chaos, romance and scandal.


'Yellowjackets' -- Showtime

Juliette Lewis, Melanie Lynskey, Christina Ricci and Tawny Cypress star in this horror-drama as the adult survivors of a plane crash that took place when they were teenagers. Sophie Thatcher, Sophie Nelisse, Samantha Hanratty and Jasmin Savoy Brown play the 1996 versions of their characters. The Yellowjackets, a high school soccer team, were stranded in the woods for nearly two years and did whatever they could to make it out. Season 1 ended in mid-January and the show was picked up for a second season in December.

'Sex Education' -- Netflix

The British dramedy follows Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield), whose mother, Jean (Gillian Anderson), is a sex therapist. Otis sets up a sex therapy clinic at his high school with help from his friend Maeve (Emma Mackey). Ncuti Gatwa, Emma Mackey, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Alistair Petrie, Mimi Keene and Aimee Lou Wood also star. The series has been renewed for a fourth season.


'Sex Lives of College Girls' -- HBO Max

The series, created by Mindy Kaling and Justin Noble, follows four college freshmen from different backgrounds as they enter fictional Essex University. Pauline Chalamet, Amrit Kaur, Reneé Rapp and Alyah Chanelle Scott star in the dramedy, which premiered in November. It has been renewed for a second season.

'Elite' -- Netflix

The Spanish-language series, which stars Itzan Escamilla, Omar Ayuso, Claudia Salas, Georgina Amorós and Carla Díaz, follows working-class teens enrolled at fictional boarding school Las Encinas through a scholarship program and their relationship with their wealthy classmates. The mystery-thriller has been renewed for a sixth season.

'Degrassi' -- Netflix, Tubi, Amazon Prime Video
