Fresh Teen Shows

This list is a round-up of teen dramas and comedies made since 2010.

Shows like The Order: Special Schools and Secret Societies

If you graduated from Central High School and your only extracurricular was AV Club, you may envy students who attend The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted or join secret societies like the Hermetic Order of the Blue Rose. Populated by vampires, witches, superheroes, and the occasional mortal, these schools and societies keep school days interesting.
