List Rules Currently running shows with fewer than 2 seasons to watch, and no procedurals.

Need help deciding which TV shows to catch up on? Here is a list of shows that have only been going for a few seasons, which means you can watch all the episodes before yet another new season begins airing. After all, starting a new TV series is a commitment and it can be an intimidating - there's so much to catch up on! It can be difficult to decide on which TV series to commit to watching. But thanks to this list of current TV shows that are easy to catch up on, you'll be chatting at the water cooler in no time about the best tv characters. You might want to start with these TV shows that are ending in 2018

For example, binge-viewing True Detective can quickly bring you up to speed on the HBO series, and Fresh Off the Boat on ABC is still in its television infancy. But Game of Thrones? Good luck; it's already on Season 8. Current TV shows you can still get all caught up on are both easy to watch and easy to stream. Whether it's Ballers with Dwayne Johnson or Black-ish with Anthony Anderson, there are options galore.

Get ready for the second or third season of a show that will soon be your favorite, by catching up now! Watch all the episodes of Better Call Saul so you'll be ready when it returns. There is also not much to catch up on with shows like Review on Comedy Central and Narcos on Netflix. With only a season or two already released, you won't spend months taking in season after season.

Current TV you can catch up on ranges from animated series like Rick and Morty to supernatural shows like The 100. On Amazon, you can catch up with Transparent to see what all the hype is about, then you can do the same with ABC's How to Get Away with Murder.

Which of these shows do you plan to catch up on? Which TV series with just a season or two under their belts are already the best? Cast your votes below and add any other series that TV fans might want to spend a weekend or two getting all caught up on.
