HBO’s Game of Thrones has to be one of the most successful TV shows of all time. Boasting innumerable fans, it is a show that had everyone sit right in front of their TVs, laptops of mobile phones. Yes, the last season was a punch in the gut, but fans still love the show a lot. This is why a spin-off of the show House of Dragons was announced; although we won’t be getting it until sometime in 2022. So, what would you do until then? You can’t just keep re-watching the episodes of GOT! You definitely deserve to watch some shows like Game of Thrones, and that’s what you will get.
Game of Thrones is a fantasy drama full of magic, wars, politics, and amazing yet deadly creatures; based on the fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire by American writer George R. R. Martin, the series really gave birth to a wave for such shows. We did get some great shows around this genre. So, here is a list of shows that you should definitely watch on Netflix if you liked Game of Thrones.
Shadow and Bone
This Netflix Original made its way on Netflix just this year and it has really drawn many people towards it. The show brought Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse to life as a fantasy series; it is based on the series of novels which include Six of Crows duology, the Shadow and Bone trilogy, and the King of Scars series.
The story revolves around Alina Starkov, a cartographer who realizes that she can control light! When the danger of Shadow Fold glooms right upon her homeland, she decides to join the legendary army of Grisha. Once there, she meets a really skilled (also handsome) general who will train her if she wants to defeat the enemy.
Shadow Bone has all the potential of becoming the next big show in the fantasy genre, and you must watch it right now!
We already have some good news for you if you are deciding to watch The Witcher, the show is returning to Netflix really soon! Yet another show based on a series of successful books of the same name, The Witcher, came out of the mind of Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The series features Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia and Freya Allan as Princess Cirilla.
Anya Chalotra brings life to the character of Yennefer of Vengerberg. Throughout the show, we are shown that these three are connected to each other through destiny and they are the ones who will save the land they live on. With even more creatures than just dragons, this is your thing if you are looking for more shows like Game of Thrones.
Probably the only show that can claim it is more steamy than Game of Thrones on TV, Outlander is based on a series of best-selling books as well. The show primarily tells the story of a nurse Claire Randall, initially living in the era of the Second World War in France she is mysteriously transported to the year 1743.
One thing leads to another and this nurse ends up romancing with a pretty handsome dude. Revolving around the themes of war, royalty, and mystery, this show is absolutely amazing; the intimate scenes in the show will seriously give Jon and Daenerys a run for their money.
Versailles tells the story of the longest-reigning monarch of a sovereign country, Louis XIV, also known as The Sun King. As soon as he becomes the king of France, Louis XIV ordered the construction of the Palace of Versailles, which later goes on to become one of the finest and most luxurious palaces in all of Europe. But the emperor had other desires which end up making this beautiful palace a center of corruption, brutality, and scheming aristocracy.
The Last Kingdom
This show was Netflix‘s answer to HBO’s Game of Thrones; even though it didn’t really turn out that great in the beginning, the Netflix Original is getting really popular. Based on the works of Bernard Cornwell, The Last Kingdom show will be returning for its fifth and final season on Netflix in 2022.
The story revolves around Osbert (renamed Uthbert) who finds out that he is not really who he thinks he is, and he actually is the heir to the throne of Ealdorman. A really exciting show involving wars, politics, and revelations, The Last Kingdom sure is a must-watch if you are looking for shows like Game of Thrones.
