#10: “Welcome to the OC, Bitches!” (2021-)


In the 2000s, "The O.C." was a must-watch for teenagers. Set in Orange County, this teen drama only lasted four seasons, but it left quite the impact on its young audience. In 2021, two of its stars, Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke, joined forces to collaborate on a podcast where they unpack each episode of their hit series. Guests have included their former co-stars like Peter Gallagher and Adam Brody. "The O.C." has been off the air since 2007. But after listening to just one episode of this pod, fans will feel like they're "right back where they started from."

#9: “Supernatural: Then and Now” (2022-)


With a pretty major fandom behind it, it feels like a no-brainer that "Supernatural" would have a rewatch podcast. Titled "Supernatural: Then and Now," the show is hosted by stars Rob Benedict and Richard Speight Jr. Each week, the duo sit down to talk about episodes and behind-the-scenes facts, while also interviewing their fellow co-stars. Launched in 2022 and with 15 seasons to get through in total, it looks like the "SPN Family" will have plenty of episodes to look forward to over the coming years.

#8: “I Am All In with Scott Patterson” (2021-)


It’s not uncommon for actors to avoid watching themselves on camera. In 2021, "Gilmore Girls" actor Scott Patterson, who had only watched the first episode and part of the Netflix revival, decided it was time to take the plunge. Stepping outside his comfort zone, Patterson reminisces and reveals fun details about the episodes. He also occasionally invites cast members to join him on the journey. The format is a refreshing take on the "rewatch" genre. Everything is so new for the charming actor who helped fans fall in love with Luke Danes, and seeing him discover it all breathes new life into Stars Hollow.

#7: “Welcome to Our Show” (2022-)


Fans of "New Girl '' have no problem rewatching the series over and over again. One of the most successful television comedies of the 2010s, the show had all the right ingredients: a fun premise and a charismatic ensemble. In 2022, Zooey Deschanel, Lamorne Morris, and Hannah Simone brought their chemistry to the podcast world. On "Welcome to Our Show," the trio reflects on the beloved sitcom and breaks down the episodes to give fans a peek behind the curtain. Everyone from writers to co-stars are invited to share stories about how the show became comedy gold, and it’s amazing.

#6: “The West Wing Weekly” (2016-20)


In 2016, actor Joshua Malina and musician/producer Hrishikesh Hirway came together to launch "The West Wing Weekly." The podcast was dedicated to the cerebral Aaron Sorkin series that took viewers into the Oval Office. Malina, who starred as Will Bailey on the hit show and superfan Hirway, rewatched every episode and provided listeners with perfectly detailed analyses. Former castmates like Martin Sheen and Allison Janney stopped to chat about their experiences on the award-winning program, too. The podcast finished its run in 2020, but is still available for fans to check across several streaming services.

#5: “Talking Sopranos” (2020-21)


Actors Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa reunited to create “Talking Sopranos,” a deep-dive podcast about their time on the HBO show. With the arrival of COVID-19, the co-hosts rolled with the punches and went remote. The state of the world didn't break their stride, and they continued to welcome former members of the "Soprano" family to discuss their time on the critically acclaimed show. Creator David Chase, actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler and more all stopped by to share their memories. There was even a special episode with self-proclaimed superfan Pete Davidson. After 91 episodes, the podcast wrapped production, leaving listeners with plenty of great content to revisit anytime.

#4: “Fake Doctors, Real Friends with Zach and Donald” (2020-)


It is no secret that "Scrubs" actors Zach Braff and Donald Faison are BFFs. Their bromance started when they played onscreen pals J.D. and Turk on the beloved medical comedy. In 2020, they took their friendship and love of the show to the next level, as they hit the airwaves with their "Fake Doctors, Real Friends" podcast. As they break down episodes of "Scrubs," we’re treated to a slew of interesting conversations and tidbits. It's a sweet and nostalgic plunge into a show that has warmed the hearts of many.

#3: “Pod Meets World” (2022-)


Grab your flannel shirts and overalls cause we're about to go back to the ‘90s with “Pod Meets World.” Dedicated to the hit comedy "Boy Meets World," this podcast is hosted by cast members Danielle Fishel, Rider Strong and Will Friedle. It's been over 20 years since the series ended, and this trio's chemistry is still burning bright as they revisit and unpack each episode of their sitcom. Starting in 2022, this pod is still in its infancy, but with 158 episodes to tackle, it’ll surely have listeners hooked for a long time to come.

#2: “Drama Queens” (2021-)


Welcome back to Tree Hill, where the drama never stops! On "Drama Queens," former "One Tree Hill" actresses Sophia Bush Hughes, Bethany Joy Lenz and Hilarie Burton Morgan gather around to transport fans back to the teen drama and offer up some binge-worthy commentary. This is the perfect pod for any “OTH” fan. As they watch each episode, the women who brought Brooke, Haley, and Peyton to life peel back the curtain to candidly talk about their experiences. They share personal stories and provide fresh new insights into their characters, leaving no stone unturned. It feels like pure magic.

It has become a massive hit, winning awards and hearts thanks to the funny, heartfelt, and clever commentary on display. Each episode offers fun facts and stories that help fans engage with the beloved series on a whole new level. Of course, there are also guest appearances from the likes of Rainn Wilson and John Krasinski. "Office Ladies" even led to a book, "The Office BFFs," which is just as amazing as it sounds.
