For millennials, life is often all about navigating change – be it their relationships, self-growth, or the pursuit of achieving something great. This can get both confusing and exciting at times, and as a result, audiences flock to the small screen to watch on screen portrayals of situations that mirror their own. And today, OTT platforms are teeming with millennial-centric storylines that fans can’t help but connect with. From romcoms to high school dramas, here are a few shows that capture the essence of this generation.
