“Gravity Falls” (2012-2016) 

This show may take place in the summer, but don’t let that trick you into thinking this isn’t the perfect fall binge. An animated classic from the mind of Alex Hirsch, “Gravity Falls” drops you right into a world brimming with life that brings out the feeling of autumn. Whether it’s through the show’s “Summerween” episode or its warm-color palette, this series will put you in the autumn mood. With an exciting plot and lovable characters, it's a must-watch if you’re looking for some childhood nostalgia this season. 

“Gravity Falls” is available to stream on Disney+ and Hulu. 

“Little Women” (2019) 

Greta Gerwig’s take on Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel has cozy vibes and fun times perfect for the season. This coming-of-age period piece takes you on a journey through the lives of four sisters and how they navigate the world. The nonlinear structure weaves seamlessly through the girls’ pasts and presents which adds depth to this timeless story. There’s tragedy and heartbreak, but it’s an emotionally fulfilling watch and a great way to de-stress after a long week.
