11 Groundbreaking TV Series That Take a Closer Look at Immigrant Life
As a woman with parents from Vietnam, I've always been thrilled to see TV shows that tell stories about immigrant families. There aren't nearly enough of them out there, but there are ones that have left an indelible impact on pop culture — you can't deny how Master of None and One Day at a Time reimagined what an American family could look like. Telling tales of heartbreak, hope, and dreams deferred, these shows not only reveal how children toggle between different cultures but also how immigrant parents navigate new lives away from their homelands. From Ramy's soft and understated comedy to Never Have I Ever's bright and poppy teen drama, here are the best immigrant-focussed TV shows that you can stream right now.
