Looking for a new series to stream? Consider “Party of Five,” a classic teen drama featuring the struggles of five siblings between the ages of 1 and 24 who are orphaned after their parents are killed in a car accident.

The show, which ran from 1994-2000, takes place in San Francisco, and tackles modern issues that some families encounter in real life such as mental health issues, alcoholism and drug abuse, financial problems, cancer, etc.

Living off the oldest sibling’s paychecks and the government- issued checks, the Salingers stick together and get through it all while raising themselves and trying to run the family restaurant.

The oldest, Charlie (Matthew Fox) , must quit his immature ways and suddenly become the responsible guardian of his four younger siblings.

Bailey (Scott Wolf), 16, begins to share his room with his younger brother Owen, 1, while trying to maintain his popularity at school and spot on the football team.

The Ivy-League bound Julia (Neve Campbell), 15, struggles with trying to figure out who she is while becoming the maternal figure to her younger sister Claudia (Lacey Chabert), 11, a sensitive child violin prodigy.

Additionally, a reboot is in the works and supposed to come out on Freeform, everyone’s favorite family drama channel.

Six seasons full of teen angst, sappy family drama and more, it’s definitely worth a watch. Watch it because of its relevance to today’s current events and because it’s a good old-fashioned teen drama that we all secretly love.

Available on Netflix.
