'Cheer Squad' On Netflix Is the Perfect Watch For Those Who've Binge-Watched 'Cheer'

'Cheer Squad' On Netflix Is the Perfect Watch For Those Who've Binge-Watched 'Cheer'

If, like us, you're still mourning the end of Cheer, Netflix's binge-worthy docuseries on the world of competitive cheerleading, then we have good news for you.

High-flying into your must-watch list, we bring you... Cheer Squad.

Here to fill the Cheer-shaped hole in your life, this Netflix show follows the lives of world-champion cheerleading squad Great White Sharks, as they juggle the pressures of training, school, work and relationships.

Cheer Squad ticks a lot of the same boxes as Cheer.

There's gravity defying sportsmanship (seriously, those basket catches are phenomenal), epic showdowns - like a routine that includes the risky "Scorp-Up" for Chomp Down, a video watched by millions - and intensive training schedules.

And beyond that, there's all the messy emotional business of growing up - anxiety, crushes on hockey boys, friendships, and the constant battle between standing out and fitting in.

Leading the elite all-female Canadian team is head coach Ali Moffat, who is focused on getting the best from her girls, physically and mentally.

Please can we have a spin off series where Cheer's coach Monica and Cheer Squad's Ali meet and plot world domination?

As the ten episode season unfolds, the Sharks take trips to Miami - where competition hots up among cheerleading's elite - and to Dallas for the NCA All-Star National Championship.

The series culminates with the Sharks arriving in Orlando with their sights set on scooping a third consecutive championship.

Prepare to feel like a member of this sisterly team. We want to get first tattoos with Nubs and Horch, crush on hockey boys with Knoxy and - of course - make coach Ali proud.

Expect bad falls, killer tumbling and friendship goals a-plenty.

OK, we'll stop sobbing over Morgan, Jerry, La'Darius, Gabi and Lexi now.

We feel a cheerleading-themed binge-watch incoming.
