Family Sitcoms for bingeing

Watching shows together with your family - siblings and cousins, parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles – is an altogether different experience. It not only helps in bonding better but guarantees a fun time with your near and dear ones. Snuggling together in a couch and watching your favourite sitcoms will definitely lead to new happy memories.

OTTplay presents to you a list of some of the best family-friendly sitcoms available in India, for you to stream along with your loved ones.

Malcolm in the Middle
A heart-warming series, it narrates how young Malcolm deals with the pressures of his dysfunctional family and his assertive siblings. With wise use of comedic elements, ample drama, a distinctive visual style and a prolific performance by young Frankie Muniz, the show is a treat not only to sitcom lovers, but to fans of all genres.
One Day at a Time
8OTTplay Rating
Inspired by Norman Lear’s 1975 series of the same name, the show revolves around a single Latina mother and army veteran, Penelope, as she struggles to adjust to her daily life. She tries to balance between her children Elena and Alex, and the ups and downs of her life, all the while confiding and depending upon her strong-willed mother Lydia, who becomes her support system. The highlight of the show is Rita Moreno as Lydia, who easily charms her way into the viewers’ hearts with her contagious energy and humour.
The Middle
7.4OTTplay Rating
The show follows the life of the Heck Family – a middle-class household consisting of parents Frances and Mike, along with their three children: dork Axl, innocent Sue and quirky genius Brick. Belonging to a low-income common family living in Indiana, how the characters navigate through their daily challenges is hilarious yet realistic, making it relatable.
Young Sheldon
7.3OTTplay Rating
A spin-off and prequel of the Big Bang Theory, the series chronicles the childhood of a young Sheldon, showcasing all the antics as well as influences and events that made him the genius eccentric he is. It also presents to us the unintellectual Cooper family and their daily antics, making the show entertaining and fun to watch.
Good Luck Charlie
When a new member Charlie arrives in the Duncan family, elder sister Teddy picks up the camera to record their daily adventures, as well as a piece of advice and learning from each of the situations for her younger sister when she grows up. A light-hearted sitcom, Good Luck Charlie is a testimony of sorts to the unexpected challenges that arise in a family due to a new child, and how to deal with them in a fun yet honest manner.
Family Reunion
6.4OTTplay Rating
An all-black ensemble is often a rare sight in the TV industry. However, in the recent web series Family Reunion we get to see this blue moon, as it focuses on Mckellan household of six who visit their extended family reunion in Georgia, and get closer to their elders, shifting to Georgia permanently.
