Whether you're tuning into The Apprentice every week, catching up on all the latest Love Island drama or are addicted to the nail-biting Trigger Point - it's clear we've been far from short of some cracking telly to binge-watch so far this year.
Starring the likes of Adeel Akhtar - who played detective Sami Kierce in the Harlan Coben smash - Daisy Haggard, Richard Durden, Geraldine James, Christine Bottomley, Ade Edmondson and Jo Martin, the drama series follows Miri Matteson as she returns home to her small town after serving a sentence of 18 years in prison for a terrible crime she committed in her teens.
While Miri (Haggard) wants to be able to move on from her dark past, it's clear her neighbours don't share the same idea and have not forgotten what went down nearly two decades ago.
Now aged 36, Miri works towards rebuilding her life from the ground up and makes a start by moving back in with her parents only to find herself with no mates, job or any clue about how to move on with her new life.

While Back to Life first premiered on BBC back in 2019, it's clear the two-season series has stood the test of time after scoring an impressive 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes' 'Tomatometer'.
Viewers have since rushed to social media to share their praise for the programme with one X, formerly Twitter, user writing: "Wow, Back To Life on Netflix is really heartwarming, isn't it? So very well made!"
A second penned: "Back to Life on Netflix is so weird but I'm really intrigued!"
"Back to Life, Netflix, weird but good, weird though," echoed a third.
"Just discovered Back to Life on Netflix, had no intention of starting a new show, just clicked it for background noise and I got hooked! Why is it so good and why have I only just discovered it?!" a fourth chimed in.
A fifth gushed: "Anyone else caught Back to Life on Netflix? Amazing show, funny, dramatic, emotional, whimsical and awesome. Also Adeel Ahktar may be UK's best actor."
"Back to Life on Netflix, six episodes in, is class," wrote another.
"Binged it... Superb," revealed a seventh, while a final Twitter user added: "It was perfect! A masterclass in how TV should be written, acted and just as importantly, cast.
"Geraldine James and Jo Martin were just brilliant again. Ade Edmondson puts in an award-winning turn as the evil bully! Daisy triumphs again!"
All 12 episodes of Back to Life are currently available to stream on both BBC iPlayer and Netflix.
