If you're in the mood for comedy, watch "Girls5eva"

"Girls5eva" is SO back. This show about a group of adults who were part of a one-hit-wonder girl group was canceled at Peacock in 2022. Netflix swooped in to save it, and season three will hit the platform on Thursday along with the first two seasons. The series stars Sara Bareilles, Busy Philipps, Paula Pell, and Renée Elise Goldsberry.

In a twist, she realizes that her new life might not actually be the one that she's been looking for.

For a dose of familiarity, put on the new season of "Grey's Anatomy."

Yep, "Grey's Anatomy" is still going. Season 20 of the landmark hospital procedural premieres on ABC on Thursday, and will be streaming on Hulu on Friday.

This is the first season in which Ellen Pompeo, who has played Meredith Grey since 2005, has fully, formally taken a backseat. She'll still be around as an executive producer and narrator, but expect to see less of her on-screen.

For an investigative dive into teen TV, watch "Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV"

This four-part Investigation Discovery series dives into allegations of toxicity under the leadership of Dan Schneider at Nickelodeon. Based on Kate Taylor's 2022 Business Insider investigation into Schneider's time at Nickelodeon, the series features interviews with cast members as well as new allegations of abuse.

"Quiet on Set," which is produced by Maxine Productions in association with BI, will air in two parts on March 17 and 18 on Investigation Discovery, and will be on Max starting March 17.

If you're looking for a family-friendly watch, check out "Trolls Band Together."

Hear me out on this one: "Trolls Band Together" is genuinely good and you should watch it.

"But this is just dreck for my kids," you say. "I can't handle Justin Timberlake as a troll again," you plead. "This movie would be better if it catered specifically to my millennial sense of late 1990s and early 2000s nostalgia," you whine.

First, it is a kids' movie, but it's also got a few jokes for the adult crowd. Second, the Justin Timberlake troll does, unfortunately, have some bangers. And third, this movie literally has *NSYNC as trolls in it. I cannot make this up. The song they sing on the film's soundtrack — and that a voice cast of Timberlake, Daveed Diggs, Eric Andre, Kid Cudi, and Troye Sivan also sing in the film — is unfairly good. Unfairly good! That's not even mentioning the Betty Spaghetti-like villains, who slay, or the fact that Anna Kendrick continues to dominate the pop covers game like she has since 2012's "Pitch Perfect."

Just watch "Trolls Band Together." Trust me.

For intense adult animation, check out "Invincible"

"Invincible" is one of the most riveting animated series currently streaming, and it's back on Thursday. The show stars Steven Yeun as Mark Grayson, a young superhero and the son of the legendary superhero Omni-Man (J.K. Simmons) and his wife Debbie (Sandra Oh). This is a superhero show is a critical darling that's worth your time — but if you're a newcomer, you should take the time to catch up on the prior episodes. New episodes will drop weekly on Thursdays.

For surreal comedy, put on Netflix's newest K-drama "Chicken Nugget"

This new Netflix Korean-language drama has an outlandish premise: what if a girl turned into a chicken nugget? No, literally: in the series, Choi Min-ah (Kim Yoo-jung) accidentally steps into a machine that turns her into a piece of chicken. Her father (Ryu Seung-ryong), the president of the company, and his intern Baek-joong (Ahn Jae-hong) are sent on a mad chase to make her human once more. And if that isn't enough to convince you, you might see another familiar face in the series' cast: "Squid Game" breakout star Jung Ho-yeon appears in the show as well.

For a campaign season drama, watch "The Girls on the Bus"

Real journalist Amy Chozick is a co-creator, adapting the story from her own memoir "Chasing Hillary." The four main characters all come from different walks of life and disciplines: there's the Gen Z social media-first reporter, a legendary print journalist, a digital reporter who was the subject of an unfortunate viral moment during the last campaign cycle, and a reporter who works for a conservative cable network.

The show premieres with two episodes on Thursday, and will air weekly after.
