For ten seasons, fans couldn’t get enough of Darren Star’s teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210 about a group of privileged high school students attending a school in posh Beverly Hills. The newest students when the show begins are twins Brandon (Jason Priestly) and Brenda (Shannen Doherty) Walsh, who recently moved to Southern California with their parents from Minneapolis. Their new city is much different from their middle American beginnings, but they quickly fall into a group of popular kids including Dylan McKay (Luke Perry), Kelly Taylor (Jennie Garth), Donna Martin (Tori Spelling), David Silver (Brian Austin Green), and Steve Sanders (Ian Ziering). Beverly Hills, 90210 tackled many taboo topics of the time like drug abuse, domestic violence, homophobia, sex, date rape, and AIDS.

Talent: Jason Priestly, Shannen Doherty, Luke Perry, Jennie Garth, Tori Spelling, Brian Austin Green, Ian Ziering, Darren Star

Back in 1991, the coolest girl on TV was Blossom Russo, the titular character from the hit sitcom Blossom played by Mayim Bialik. For five seasons, viewers followed the Italian American teen as she navigated life and love alongside her dad Nick (Ted Wass), brothers Tony (Michael Stoyanov) and Joey (Joey Lawrence), and her best friend Six (Jenna Von Oy). Although the show is a comedy, important teen topics like addiction, sexual assault, and teen pregnancy are dealt with over the course of its five season run. Bialik recently told EW she’s been trying unsuccessfully for years to reboot the series but she and creator Don Reo have “had a lot of trouble getting our network onboard.” The good news: they haven’t given up.

Talent: Mayim Bialik, Michael Stoyanov, Joey Lawrence, Jenna Von Oy, and Don Reo

Before the internet peaked and people didn’t get lost on social media via their mobile phones, folks checked in weekly at the place where everyone knows your name: Cheers. The series follows bar owner Sam Malone (Ted Danson), a former baseball player turned Lothario throughout the show’s eleven seasons. He falls in love at least twice and it’s as complicated as anyone can imagine.

Chicago Med 

NBC’s Chicago Med should not be called a soap opera, but you wouldn’t be completely wrong if you did. The medical drama has all the makings of one: juicy love triangles, lots of interoffice romances, death, drama — both in and out of the ER — and cast members fans will fall in love with who will eventually depart. But it’s the emotional connection audiences form with these small screen heroes that truly keeps them coming back season after season. The best part is, anyone can pop-in during any of the show’s five seasons and not need to worry about what happened previously in the story.

Claws

Oh, the trouble that encircles five, west Florida manicurists due to a series of unfortunate events on TNT’s Claws. Niecy Nash leads the talented female cast as Desna Simms, owner of Nail Artisans, who gets herself and her colleagues — played by Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes, Karrueche Tran, and Jenn Lyon — caught up in various criminal activities. Follow the ladies as they climb the criminal business ladder but watch out as the mistakes pile up.

Talent: Niecy Nash, Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes, Karrueche Tran, Jenn Lyon, Harold Perrineau, Dean Norris, and Jimmy Jean-Louis

FOR LIFE

Aaron Wallace (Nicholas Pinnock) was framed for drug crimes he didn’t commit, but he won’t just roll over and play dead. While serving his prison sentence, he becomes a lawyer who focuses on freeing his fellow inmates with discrepancies in their cases. As he learns how the system works (and doesn’t work), he finds the breadcrumbs that could help him return to his family as a free man. But things are complicated and frustrating when trying to expose fraud within the system, and his life is on the line nearly every week as he fights for freedom.

Talent: Nicholas Pinnock, Joy Bryant, Indira Varma, Dorian Crossmond Missick, and created by Hank Steinberg

Before J.J. Abrams went to a galaxy far, far away, there was Felicity, a TV series about the lengths a high school senior will go to for a crush. Keri Russell portrayed the titular character who makes the last minute switch from attending Stanford University for the University of New York, after Ben (Scott Speedman) laments he didn’t know her better in a yearbook inscription. Although things don’t end up as she imagined exactly, Felicity realizes she was exactly where she needed to be — controversial haircut and all.

Talent: Keri Russell, Scott Speedman, Scott Foley, Ian Gomez, and Amy Jo Johnson; J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves series creators

Dr. Frasier Crane is listening, so grab a comfy spot on the couch and catch up with the comedy series that has a revival coming down the pipeline. Kelsey Grammer stars as the titular character, a psychiatrist and now radio talk show host, who was first introduced on Cheers. After a divorce, he departs from Boston and heads towards his hometown of Seattle. But as he’s planning to live the life of a swinging bachelor, his father Martin (the late John Mahoney) moves into his apartment after an accident leaves him impaired. The family comedy also stars David Hyde Pierce as Fraser’s brother Niles, and Jane Leeves portrays Martin’s physical therapist, Daphne Moon.

Freaks and Geeks

Freaks-and-Geeks

Paul Feig gives viewers an inside look at the high school experience in Freaks and Geeks, the short-lived comedy series that helped launch the careers of Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen, Linda Cardellini, Busy Philipps, James Franco, and Jason Segel, among others. Cardellini stars as Lindsay Weir, a smarty pants star student who rebels and wants to be part of a different crowd. This journey of self-discovery causes tension between the teen and her parents, who notice she’s slacking and hanging out with the freaks. The series also shows what high school is like for the geeks at school, namely through Lindsay’s brother Sam (John Francis Daley), who in the premiere is saved from a bully after his sister threatens to beat him up.

Talent: Linda Cardellini, Seth Rogen, James Franco, Busy Phillips, Jason Segel, John Francis Daley, Samm Levine, Martin Starr, and created by Paul Feig. Judd Apatow served as executive producer.

Fresh Off the Boat 

ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat may be a story about a Tawainese American family, but many immigrant communities could relate to the hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking experiences felt by the Huang family. Randall Park and Constance Wu played parents Louis and Jessica Huang, respectively, raising three boys in Orlando in the mid-1990s. The older generation, which also includes sassy-yet-strict grandma Jenny (Lucille Soong), is caught between the traditions of their ancestors and their new life in the United States, while their sons are much more American than apple pie. 

Talent: Randall Park, Constance Wu, Lucille Soong, Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler, Ian Chen, and Luna Blaise; created by Nahnatchka Khan

The life of the legendary singer Aretha Franklin plays out for audiences in Nat Geo’s Genius: Aretha, with Cynthia Erivo taking on the lead role. Across eight episodes, viewers are transported to her early years in the 1950s before she became the Queen of Soul and then follow her throughout her illustrious career which saw her earn 18 Grammys and the Presidential Medal of Honor.

The Golden Girls

It’s been nearly 35 years since The Golden Girls made their debut and they’re as popular now as ever. The series, created by Susan Harris, follows four women of a certain age — Blanche, Rose, Dorothy, and her mother Sophia — who are spending their golden years together in a Miami home full of wicker, cheesecakes, and “Picture it, Sicily” stories. The multiple Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning comedy was ahead of its time, dealing with taboo topics like immigration, gay marriage, the sexual behavior of older women, and suicide.

The Handmaid’s Tale

In a dystopian future, a totalitarian society has taken over the United States, where fertile women known as “handmaids” serve to bear children for society women unable to have them in The Handmaid’s Tale. In present-day Gilead, the story of June Osbourne — renamed Offred after the civil war changed the world forever — is assigned to work in the home of the highly influential Waterford family. She was forced to leave behind her husband and daughter, though they are never far from her mind. There are attempts at freedom by the Handmaids, with varying degrees of success, but not everyone makes it out of Gilead alive.

Home Economics

HOME ECONOMICS

A sweet and often rocky relationship between three siblings is explored in ABC’s Home Economics, with Topher Grace, Caitlin McGee, and Jimmy Tatro portraying the trio. Although things appear to be perfect on the surface, each is struggling with either a personal or professional matter that seems easier to tackle when they’re there for one another.  Parents, spouses and kids bring an extra layer of fun and frivolity.

Talent: Topher Grace, Karla Souza, Caitlin McGee, Jim Tatro, and Sasheer Zamata 

Homeland*

For eight seasons, CIA officer Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) hunted down terrorists — both foreign and domestic — in an effort to keep the United States safe in the thriller Homeland. But cases became more challenging for Mathison as the series went on, causing friction between her and her mentor Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin). Fighting terrorism in a post-9/11 world has its challenges already built-in, but all of that is compounded even further when you don’t know who you can trust.

Killing Eve

There’s a psychopath assassin on the loose and she’s managed to elude capture, but can she keep running forever? That proves to be a challenge for Villanelle (Jodie Comer) on Killing Eve because one of the most clever British intelligence investigators is on her case. Eve Polastri (Sandra Oh) easily gets drawn into Villanelle’s bloody path and manages to get truly obsessed with the hired hitwoman, risking her job, her marriage, and many times, even her life.

Talent: Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer, and Fiona Shaw

Little Fires Everywhere*

Little Fires Everywhere

You don’t need to have read Celeste Ng’s hit 2017 novel Little Fires Everywhere in order to watch the miniseries it inspired of the same name, but if you did, it won’t take anything away from your TV watching experience. Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon take the lead in the drama in the roles of Mia Warren and Elena Richardson, both mothers who love and protect their children fiercely which leads to many uncomfortable moments. The series itself does a great job with creating very tense and emotional moments between two of Hollywood’s most beloved leading ladies. And the star power doesn’t end there: Joshua Jackson, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jesse Williams, Anika Noni Rose, AnnaSophia Robb, and Sarita Choudhury appear.

Talent: Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon 

Living Single

Before there was Friends, there was this show about friends living and loving in New York. The series premiered in 1993 and quickly became one of the most popular Black shows of its time. Living Single was set in the Brooklyn apartment of cousins Khadijah James (Queen Latifah) and Synclaire James (Kim Coles) and their unofficial roommates Maxine Shaw (Erika Alexander) and Régine Hunter (Kim Fields). Though Shaw and Hunter had their own apartments, they spent an exorbitant amount of time with the James. Things get even more complicated when Maxine and Synclaire find love is just doors away.

Talent: Queen Latifah, Kim Coles, Erika Alexander, Kim Fields, T.C. Carson, and John Henton

Love, Victor

Love, Victor

If you couldn’t get enough of Love, Simon, Hulu has a new series set in the same universe titled Love, Victor about a Latinx teen who recently moved to Atlanta with his parents and is starting a new school year surrounded by strangers. Victor (Michael Cimino) seems to quickly find himself with a flood of friends, but at the same time, he’s also struggling with his sexuality. If only he could count on his parents for support, but Armando (James Martinez) and Isabel (Ana Ortiz) Salazar are too busy bickering. Victor reaches out to Simon (Nick Robinson) for guidance and support appearing mostly in voice-overs.

Luther

Luther S4

Before Idris Elba was part of nearly every big James Bond rumor, he was Detective Chief Inspector John Luther in the British drama Luther. While the titular character is a great detective, he easily gets caught up in the darkness of the crimes he handles on a day-to-day basis as part of the Serious Crime Unit. And it doesn’t help his mental health at all that while he’s pouring everything he has into his work, he’s also trying to avenge the murder of his wife. Things really start going downhill for Luther after meeting psychopath murderer, Alice Morgan (Ruth Wilson), as lines get blurred between the pair.

Talent: Idris Elba, Ruth Wilson, Rose Leslie, and Warren Brown

Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K.

MARVEL’S M.O.D.O.K.

Patton Oswalt will make his big debut on Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K on May 21 where he’ll voice the titular character, also known as George Tarleton. M.O.D.O.K., which stands for Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing, is a floating robotic engineered head who is about to go through a midlife crisis after being let go from both his evil organization A.I.M. and his family. His wife Jodie is played by Aimee Garcia, and their son Lou is voiced by Ben Schwartz.

Mayans M.C.

The world created by Kurt Sutter on the FX hit Sons of Anarchy expanded in 2018 with the story line focused on this Mexican rival motorcycle gang in Mayans MC. Emilio Rivera, who portrayed Marcus Alvarez on Sons, reprised his role and moved up to the honorary position of Padrino, which means godfather in Spanish. A whole cast of new characters lined up as part of the M.C., though throughout the show’s two seasons, many old faces reappeared in their original roles. And in true Sutter fashion, it’s best not to get too attached to any character because you never know when they’ll meet the reaper.

Talent: Edward James Olmos, Emilio Rivera, Danny Pino, J.D. Pardo, Clayton Cardenas, Richard Cabral, Michael Irby, Tony Plana, Ada Maris, and Sarah Bolger

Medium

MEDIUM

Allison DuBois (Patricia Arquette) is a psychic medium working for the Phoenix, Ariz. district attorney’s office with helping to solve open criminal investigations. She’s married and she and her husband Joe (Jake Weber) have three daughters, all of whom also have supernatural powers. Medium is not so much scary as it is interesting to watch Allison balance work life with being a busy wife and mother, as well as hearing dead people.

Talent: Patricia Arquette, Jake Weber, Miguel Sandoval, Ryan Hurst, David Arquette, and Margo Martindale

The Mindy Project

Dr. Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) is a successful OBGYN trying to find the balance between her personal and professional life in The Mindy Project. Set in New York City, audiences are introduced to wacky and extremely good looking characters both in and out of her practice. The rom-com also finds Lahiri dating lots of eligible, gorgeous men, though as the story unravels, we discover just how complicated love in the big city really is.

Miranda

Miranda

Before Tom Ellis went to the dark side and became Lucifer, he was the hunky object of affection of a joke shop owner in the British comedy Miranda from comedian Miranda Hart. The three-season series features the self-deprecating titular character who often finds herself in awkward situations that lead her to breaking the fourth wall. Never too far away is Miranda’s mum (Patricia Hodge) who doesn’t understand why her daughter doesn’t just get a proper job and a husband, and she let’s Miranda know this as often as she can. The series is comedy gold and inspired Mayim Bialik’s remake for Fox Call Me Kat.

Talent: Miranda Hart, Tom Ellis, Sarah Hadland, Patricia Hodge, James Holmes, and Sally Phillips

Mr. Inbetween

MR INBETWEEN

Ray Shoesmith (Scott Ryan) is a hitman with a heart in FX’s hidden gem Mr. Inbetween, whose violent career begins to take a serious toll on him as he attempts to compartmentalize each complicated layer of his life with varying degrees of success. In one moment Ray can be reading a bedtime story to his daughter — though one that’s inappropriate — and the next he’s killing someone.

Ryan shared insight with EW in 2019 about his character’s unusual career saying,  “He doesn’t kill for pleasure; it’s just a job.” Director Nash Edgerton added, “He’s a complicated human, like us all. Just because he does a job that society doesn’t agree with doesn’t mean he is all bad.”

Cast: Scott Ryan, Justin Rosniak, Brooke Satchwell, Chika Yasumura, Natalie Tran, and Nicholas Cassim

Ramy

Ramy Youssef is the most complicated uncomplicated guy in America and he has a story to tell about the Muslim American experience going boldly into a conversation that not many have dared to have on television. In Ramy, he’s torn between his traditional Muslim traditions and just wanting to be a regular American guy, not doing either quite well. It’s hilarious, sad, and relatable all at the same time, and he masterfully — and artfully — pushes viewers into uncomfortable spaces.

Talent: Ramy Youssef, Mahershala Ali, Hiam Abbass, Dave Merheje, Amr Waked, and Steve Way

The Resident

Fox’s The Resident is a medical drama where drama, love, and ego reign supreme. Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry) is a young and talented medical professional who exists in more of a grey area than in the black and white. What this means is, Conrad is willing to break the rules for his patients and what he believes in even if it means losing his job. It’s worth noting that working for bosses like chief of surgery and later CEO (and later back again) Randolph Bell (Bruce Greenwood) are basically torture for anyone they deem beneath them, but things get really intense at Chastain Park Memorial with the addition of neurosurgeon Barrett Cain (Morris Chestnut) in season 3 who has too many secrets to hide and an ego that barely fits in the building. 

Talent: Matt Czuchry, Morris Chestnut, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, Emily VanCamp, Manish Dayal, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Bruce Greenwood, Jane Leeves, and David Allen Grier; created by Amy Holden-Jones, Hayley Schore, and Roshan Sethi

Saved by the Bell

He and his friends Slater (Mario Lopez), Screech (Dustin Diamond), Kelly (Tiffani Thiessen), Jessie (Elizabeth Berkley), and Lisa (Lark Voorhies) are always coming up with schemes and pranks to keep principal Belding (Dennis Haskins) on his toes.

Talent: Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffani Thiessen, Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley, Lark Voorhies, Dustin Diamond, and Dennis Haskins

Scandal

KERRY WASHINGTON

Credit: Giovanni Rufino/ABC

There’s no drama too big in the White House than can’t be cleaned up by Olivia Pope, a professional fixer played by Kerry Washington for seven seasons on the hit Shondaland series Scandal. It’s impossible to tease all the twists and turns that transpire in the highest office in the land, but they’re extensive and they’re juicy. Not even Pope can resist the call of the drama, which makes for some of the most scandalous moments of the series.

Sons of Anarchy

On the surface, Sons of Anarchy is a show about a motorcycle club and the mayhem brought on by its shady roster of members. But if you dig deeper, the drama is really a show about family, loyalty, and how it’s never too late to do the right thing. Those loyalties are tested often, and for people not on the up and up, the reaper is never far away.

Talent: Charlie Hunnam, Ron Pearlman, Katey Sagal, Maggie Siff, David Labrava, Theo Rossi, Tommy Flanagan, Kim Coates, Emilio Rivera, Jimmy Smits, Ryan Hurst, Drea de Matteo, Kurt Sutter

Station 19

Life is tough when you’re a firefighter, treading the line between hero and Normal Joe and all the messiness it entails. On Station 19, viewers get a peek into the lives of Seattle Fire Department’s Station 19 and what goes on behind the scenes for its dedicated service workers struggling to find the perfect work-life balance while doing their best to break as few hearts as possible. The series centers on Andy Herrera (Jaina Lee-Ortiz), whose battles include finding her place at the fire station where her father Pruitt Herrera served honorably as captain. Her private life is messy, but the same can be said of all her colleagues — and those problems often spill over into their professional lives. Fans of Grey’s Anatomy will particularly love Station 19 because a lot of characters come to play in their world and vice versa.

Talent: Jaina Lee Ortiz, Miguel Sandoval, Jason George, Boris Kodjoe, Grey Damon, Barrett Doss, Jay Hayden, Okieriete Onaodowan, and Danielle Savre

This is Us*

This Is Us – Season 1

Grab plenty of tissues before sitting down to watch the first five seasons of This Is Us, the popular series following the Pearson family across multiple timelines. At the center of the drama are the husband and wife duo of Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Mandy Moore), and their three children: twins Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Kevin (Justin Hartley), and their adopted third Randall (Sterling K. Brown). Part of the fun of the time jumps is being able to admire the work of the young actors bringing to life the Big Three during different decades. But with one final season left to tie up all the loose ends, creator Dan Fogelman surely has plenty more twists and turns planned as the series nears its final crescendo.

Ugly Betty

Betty Suarez (America Ferrera) may lack the looks the vapid people at a prestigious fashion magazine require to admire and respect someone, but they’ll soon learn why underestimating her is bad news. Anyone can invest in a makeover to improve upon one’s outer beauty, but no one can steal your intelligence and dedication in Ugly Betty.

United We Fall

ABC’s United We Fall gives audiences an inside look at what it’s like for an interracial couple raising two girls while living in a space between two very different cultures. It shares insight into the joys and hardships faced by Jo Rodriguez (Christina Vidal Mitchell) and Bill Ryan (Will Sasso), but also how much their love and respect for one another ultimately makes the journey worth it. Comedy relief comes by way of Jane Curtin and Guillermo Diaz, who portray Bill’s mother Sandy and Jo’s brother Chuy, respectively. 

Talent: Christina Vidal Mitchell, Will Sasso, Jane Curtin, Guillermo Diaz, Ella Grace Helton, and twins Ireland & Sedona Carjaval; created by Julius Sharpe

What We Do In The Shadows

Yes, FX’s What We Do In The Shadows is based on the Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi film, but it’s so much more! The series has taken the idea of shooting a mockumentary about the lives of vampires and expanded it with a talented cast of supernatural beings mucking about and causing mayhem in New York’s Staten Island. Well, at least that’s what it’s about on the surface. As the series unravels, the story dives into vampire Nandor the Relentless’ (Kayvan Novak) familiar Guillermo (Harvey Guillen) who desperately wants to be turned by his master until he discovers he’s the descendant of vampire killer Van Helsing. This makes for interesting situations at their home, as Guillermo battles evil beings protecting his ungrateful roommates without their knowledge until he bores of it all and has no choice but to embrace his destiny.

Talent: Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen, and Mark Proksch; created by Jemaine Clement; Taika Waititi and Clement are executive producers.

White Collar

White Collar – Season 4

Back when USA Network’s golden era of blue skies television, there was White Collar. The series follows Neal Cafferty (Matt Bomer), a talented and sly con-artist working as a criminal informant. Cafferty had a talent for getting under the skin of Special Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) but it was their chemistry — mixed in with the magic of co-stars Willie Garson, Tiffany Thiessen, Marsha Thomason, and the incomparable Diahann Carroll — that made the show a hit for six seasons.

Talent: Matt Bomer, Tim DeKay, Willie Garson, Tiffany Thiessen, Marsha Thomason, Diahann Carroll, Sharif Atkins, and Hilarie Burton; created by Jeff Eastin

The Wonder Years

THE WONDER YEARS

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times — it was The Wonder Years. Fred Savage stars as Kevin Arnold in the popular, coming-of-age dramedy set between 1968-1973 in a middle-class suburban neighborhood in the U.S. The series, which ran for six seasons on ABC from 1988-1993, follows Kevin’s family life, school years, and, more importantly, his infatuation with Winnie Cooper (Danica McKellar). Josh Saviano, who plays Kevin’s best friend and confidante, Paul Pfeiffer, becomes a much bigger part of the series as the show moves its focus away from Kevin’s family life.

Talent: Fred Savage, Dan Lauria, Alley Mills, Olivia d’Abo, Alley Mills, Jason Hervey, Danica McKellar, and Paul Saviano

Young Rock

Young Rock

What was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson like when he was growing up? NBC’s Young Rock explores this very topic with super fun time jumps featuring young Rock’s of all ages. Adrian Groulx plays Johnson aged 10, Bradley Constant at age 15, and Uli Latukefu from ages 18-20 years old.

Longtime wrestling fans also get to see a lot of the classic wrestlers from the golden age of WWE (then known as WWF) including Andre the Giant (Matthew Willig), The Iron Sheik (Brett Azar), Junkyard Dog (Nate Jackson), and Randy “Macho Man” Savage (Kevin Makely), to name a few. But the biggest wrestler of them all, as Johnson would certainly agree, was his father Rocky Johnson (Joseph Lee Anderson) who died in 2020.

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Joseph Lee Anderson, Stacey Leilua, Ana Tuisila, Adrian Groulx, Bradely Constant, Uli Latukefu, Rosario Dawson, and Randall Park

Younger

YOUNGER_512_ZD_0706_R

When Liza Miller (Sutton Foster) needed to breathe new life into her career, she decided lying about her age was the way to go. Not to spoil too much but her plan worked, at least for a while. Liza, who was coming off a divorce at the start of the series, ends up learning a lot about herself along the way including how much damage a little fib can cause. Not everything is dark, however. There are friendships, fun, and love affairs to be had across six seasons currently available via Hulu.

90 Day Fiancé

Pedro and Chantel

Relationships are messy, and they’re even messier when couples are separated by many miles. That’s the premise of TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé, bringing together a loving pair who live in different countries, with the American-born partner filing a K-1 Visa to bring their foreign partner to live in the United States. The series has been a huge success for the network and has spawned several spin-offs. It’s obvious that some people have something other than love on their mind when they sign up for this long-distance relationship, but most of them, surprisingly, make it down the aisle. 

Talent: Includes Darcey Silva, Paola Mayfield, Loren and Alexi Brovarnik, Anfisa Arkhipchenko, Jorge Nava, Nicole Nafziger, Azan Tefou, Chantel Everett, and Pedro Jimeno
