by at .

Teen dramas have dominated the small screen for decades now. 

As such, there are many. 

The Hollywood Gossip is here to run down the 13 Best Teen Dramas of all time. 

Yes, we've narrowed them down to 13!

Did your favorite show make the cut?

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The WB/UPN

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - The WB/UPN
It's hard to believe that a TV show based on a failed movie became such a cultural phenomenon. But Joss Whedon finely tuned the series to make sure that it resonated with teenagers, despite the supernatural elements.

2. Euphoria - HBO

Euphoria - HBO
It may only have aired one season, but it features an accurate portrayal of what it's like to live as a teenager in today's world. The cast is led by the wonderful Zendaya, who well and truly sticks the middle finger up to that Disney image she was known for.

3. Freaks and Geeks - NBC

Freaks and Geeks - NBC
It was way ahead of its time. It focused on some serious topics that had not been shown on the small screen at the time. On top of that, it had some big stars attached to it.

4. The Vampire Diaries - The CW

The Vampire Diaries - The CW
For a show that was compared to a watered-down attempt at Twilight ahead of its launch, The Vampire Diaries proved to be quite the opposite. With twists, turns, and lots of teen angst it started a franchise for The CW.

5. Riverdale - The CW

Riverdale - The CW
It's probably the most ridiculous show on this list, but it is so freaking addictive. The teenagers act like adults by being part of gangs and such, while the adults act like teenagers by bed-hopping. Pretty crazy, right?

6. My So-Called Life - ABC

My So-Called Life - ABC
This series may have lasted only one season, but it was praised for its portrayal of adolescence. The cast members were teenagers at the time and were struggling with the demands of schoolwork while trying to film episodic television. Claire Danes was the one who wanted out, and that's sort of why the series ended prematurely.
