Netflix and Riot Games fulfilled fans’ wishes by renewing Arcane for a season 2. But with no fixed date for the release of season 2 of Arcane, fans will have to scavenge through Netflix for shows like Arcane. It is a miracle that Arcane showcased a multi-layered story of complex characters set in a dystopian setting with amazing action scenes in just nine episodes of season 1.
There is a reason Arcane has an IMDb score of 9.4, and you can’t expect the same from other shows. Thus, we have got five shows like Arcane that resemble it in some aspects.
The Witcher is an epic fantasy that Netflix released in 2019. The second season will premiere on December 17, 2021. In this show, the story follows the exploits of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri, as the trio overcomes obstacles and discovers their fate.
Arcane and The Witcher perfectly depict the power struggle between the haves and the have-nots. The Witcher is also one of the rare video game adaptations that did not disappoint the fans.
The 1998 classic anime follows Spike Spiegel and his crew of space bounty hunters on various adventures across the universe. Cowboy Bebop has the same dystopian setting and an anti-hero, Spike, being in focus, just like Jinx.
The anime even inspired a Netflix live-action adaptation which has received mixed reviews.
The Legend of Korra
Avatar Korra is the successor of Aang and has to deal with a rapidly changing world where bending has become a common art among civilians. Avatar: The Last Airbender, is a prequel to The Legend of Korra and even has some recurring characters from the prequel.
As this is an American animated series, the animation changes from the conventional one in other animes. The show is also in tandem with Arcane with a strong female lead.
The Umbrella Academy
Fans loved this Netflix original for its unique concept and amazing action scenes. The show follows seven adopted children as their billionaire father trains them to save the world, but the family doesn’t last for long. In addition, Sci-Fi and family drama are the key themes across The Umbrella Academy, which has two seasons on Netflix.
This is one more anime that is on the list courtesy of its epic animated battles and multi-dimensional villains. Castlevania is a story about Trevor Belmont, who leads the fight of humans against vampires. Again, a video game series inspired an anime that premiered in 2017 and now has four seasons.
Let us know in the comments which show looks the most enticing to you.
