On the occasion of the upcoming Friendship Day, we are looking at our top picks of the series that gave us “Squad Goals.” It is always comforting to have your own squad which is akin to a tribe. They are there to comfort you and share in your ups and downs, milestones in life and will always have your back. They might have their occasional tiffs but at the end of the day, they know they can count on each other.

Below mentioned series consists of three or more friends in a group. Take a look at these series with an enviable squad that we wouldn’t mind being part of.

We have Monse, Ruby, Cesar and Jamal, four childhood friends who prepare for a huge change with the commencement of high school. All of them come from different backgrounds and sometimes have fought amongst themselves but when push comes to shove, each of them steps up to protect the others back, damning the consequences. Their unshakeable bond and mindset in the face of adversity make us want to be part of their group. The show also deals with social issues in a nuanced way, without coming off as preachy.

Inej is a spy and an expert knife wielder while Jesper is a savvy sharpshooter with a thirst for gambling and Kaz Brekker is their leader, a criminal prodigy and an expert thief with a dark past. They all have each other's backs and are even ready to die for each other.
