"Not Over It" is for the pop culture obsessed.

"Not Over It" season one features 50, 30-40 minute episodes released weekly on Tuesdays that cover all of the pop culture moments that we’re still not over: from celebrity couples we never saw coming, the Internet’s latest Netflix boyfriend (the Duke from Bridgerton), why we can’t stop watching Grey’s Anatomy, and more. Guests will include other POPSUGAR editors and celebrity talent.
