To many, the Fourth of July holiday and weekend means indulging in a long sleep, enjoying a beach day, and treating yourself to happy hour. But others, who prefer to cozy up at home, may be in need of a list of shows to start bingeing now that they have a few more out-of-office hours.

A Fourth of July binge might mean finally starting Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s London-based comedy “Fleabag” that everyone in your life can’t stop talking about, or maybe it means you’ll sign yourself up for a voyage to “Love Island,” which just released five seasons on Hulu.

Mood - Something - Netflix - Miniseries - Department

For those in the mood for something more serious, however, Netflix isn’t lacking in the historical miniseries department — “Chernobyl” and “When They See Us” both tell the gripping stories of two very different tragedies that took place in the ‘80s.

Scroll on for our full list of recommendations for the July 4 weekend and all summer long:

Need - Reality

If you’re in need of some reality drama:

“Love Island” (Hulu) The U.K’s version of “The Bachelor” is finally available in the U.S, which means we’re in store for plenty more awkward first dates than we thought. A group of singles are sent to a deserted mansion in a paradisiacal island to find love, and course take home a cash prize.

Casketeers - Netflix - Reality - Series - Duo

“The Casketeers” (Netflix) The reality series follows husband-and-wife duo, Francis and Kaiora Tipene running their funeral home, Tipene Funerals, in New Zealand. Think “Six Feet Under” — but with Polynesian traditions.

“Terrace House” (Netflix) The Japan-based reality show — centered on telegenic twentysomethings living in a posh minimalist house — has developed a cult following in the U.S. as an exceedingly polite version of MTV’s “The Real World.” Come for the passive-aggressive roommate fights, stay for the food porn and witty color commentary by the show’s panel.
