5 Shows to Watch If You Love Taylor Swift!

This roundup of five shows will be sure to satisfy your inner Swiftie while you wait for Taylor Swift’s next album to drop.

Taylor Swift’s music embodies a vast variety of emotions with different eras and aesthetics, changing the mood and theme of her music. With such a wide, diverse catalog of songs with universal themes, we’ve picked out just a few incredible shows that manifest some of the messages and tropes in her songs.

Shadow and Bone

Fans of Taylor Swift’s more fantastical songs like “Long Live” and “The Great War” will love watching Shadow and Bone, a fantasy series with magic, heists, and an attractive cast of main characters. With high stakes and friendships that function more like family, Swifties will have the time of their lives following the love triangle between the three main characters and the two other love stories all intertwined together. This show is available to watch on Netflix, and the second season is coming out this March.

The Summer I Turned Pretty

With a soundtrack filled with Taylor Swift’s hits, The Summer I Turned Pretty is a love triangle romance straight out of a Taylor Swift song. Set at a beach house in Cousins, the show is full of swimming, sun, and drama, all complete with a debutante ball. The second season is also slated to be released this summer, so catch up with it all on Amazon Prime.

The Haunting of Bly Manor

The Haunting of Bly Manor just embodies the aesthetics of folklore and evermore with “Marjorie” and “The Lakes.” With sapphic themes and hauntingly beautiful sets, this mini-series is perfect for fans of Taylor’s darker, more emotional music of love and loss. Catch this show on Netflix.

Dash and Lily

Dash and Lily is a holiday romance series unlike any other with dares and letters. If you’re a huge fan of Taylor’s holiday music like “Christmas Tree Farm” or her more adventurous tracks like “Holy Ground,” you’ll love Dash and Lily, which is streaming on Netflix.

The Sex Lives of College Girls

The Sex Lives of College Girls is a hilarious coming-of-age comedy that embodies some of Taylor’s older songs like “Change” and “A Place in this World.” Following four girls navigating their first year of college, this HBO Max show is perfect if you’re looking to reminisce about going into adulthood and have a good laugh along the way.
