As the weather begins to drop below 80 degrees and the days become shorter, Webbies can sense that fall is approaching. Since California does not have traditional fall temperatures, we overcompensate by carving pumpkins, watching scary movies, and decorating our rooms with spiderwebs and candles. But the most perfect fall activity is finding a new show to watch or rewatch. Read to find our list of iconic shows for you to check out to help decide what to watch this fall!
