11 of the best TV female friendships

In media, it’s very easy to see two women pitted against each other, whether it’s for career success or for a man. Sometimes there comes along a friendship so grand it shapes a whole show. So in honour of Galentines Day we’ve featured 10 of our favourite female TV friendships.

Grey Anatomy

Meredith+ Cristina

“You’re my person” Three words that sum up exactly what best friendship is and Meredith and Christina had it in buckets.Meredith and Christina, bickered, challenged and hated each other at times but more than anything they loved each other dark + twisty ‘n all.

Gossip Girl


Blair + Serena

Blair and Serena were two other volitive besties backstabbing each other on the school yard. One of the most satisfying things about Gossip Girl was watching their friendship grow as they accepted each other flaws and all, choosing to support each other before dragging the other one down.

Broad City


Abby + Ilana

Broad City is a show so unashamedly about female friendship and the way it can brighten up even the most mundane days of your life. Abby and Ilana may never reach romantic paradise but at the of the day they have each other and that’s way more fun.



Phoebe + Monica+ Rachel

Phoebe, Rachel and Monica didn’t get a whole lot of time to hangout in a female only setting but when they did it was comedy gold. Whether it featured Danny Devito as a stripper or Phoebe declaring that Rachel and Monica were her bitches, the Friends girls always held their own and their bond was stronger than anything.

Jessica Jones


Trish + Jess

Trish and Jessica are the ultimate ride or die, two girls who have been to hell and back. With Trish being the not-so-perfect child star turned radio host and Jessica being an unlikely superhero come, alcoholic detective, Trish and Jessica make the most of unlikely of friends that’ll kill for each other.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Buffy + Willow

Buffy and Willow are truly the heart of the show. Even though they end the show as a Witch and a Slayer they still found their way to each other as the Geek and the New Girl at Sunnydale High. Buffy and Willow transcend the supernatural.

Orange is the new Black


Taystee + Poussey

At the end of the day, we all want a friend who we’d get through prison with. That’s why Taystee and Poussey were the perfect pairing for life at Litchfield and why the ending to last season was so entirely devastating.

Sex and the City


Carrie + Samantha + Charlotte + Miranda

Never was there a show so in centred around female friendship, exploring the idea that your love story doesn’t have to be of the romantic type. Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda informed an entire generation of girls that the women in your life will be there through thick and thin.

Pretty Little Liars


Aria + Spencer + Hanna + Emily

The Liars may spend more time keeping secrets than shopping but that doesn’t mean the girls don’t care for each other. Pretty Little Liars is a show ultimately about the crazy and insane moments in young female friendship and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Gilmore Girls


Rory + Lorelei

Rory and Lorelei are mother and daughter and also best friends. Their story together goes through more ups and downs than the roads around Stars Hollow. Their friendship and witty dialogue are just a couple of the reasons why Gilmore Girls is just as popular today as it was in the late 00s.

Parks and Recreation


Ann + Leslie

Where would a Galentines Day post be without honouring the original Leslie and Ann? The most tragic moment of the otherwise rose-tinted world of Parks and Rec was Ann’s departure but the show more than made up it by introducing us to the February 13th event.
