So you've just finished watching Firefly Lane, here are 8 shows to binge next.

If you've had a chat with female colleagues, family members or friends this week, chances are the new Netflix show Firefly Lane has come up in conversation.

The heartfelt coming-of-age drama starring Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy) and Sarah Chalke (Scrubs), follows best friends - Tully and Kate - as they navigate their teens, 20s, 30s and 40s together.

Now, if you haven't seen it just yet, we highly recommend it. The 10 episodes are brilliantly written, the characters are complex and the costumes and music are fabulous.
