10 Best Shows to Watch If You Like Game of Thrones (and Where to Stream Them)

Published on

Game of Thrones redefined the fantasy genre for TV audiences like never before. It has been several years since the final season ended. George R.R. Martin’s next Game of Thrones novel still awaits a release date. But even to this day, the legacy of Game of Thrones endures with ambitious battle sequences, sprawling landscapes of Westeros, and some unforgettable Emmy-winning performances by Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke and others.

If you miss this HBO classic and need similar recommendations to watch, our guide takes you through many other shows that you can stream after Game of Thrones and where to watch them.

House of the Dragon 

Set more than a century before Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon has won over the franchise’s fanbase since its very first season. The fantasy series brings back the royal drama and gruesome violence of Game of Thrones, but with way more dragon action!

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

George R.R. Martin, like any fantasy writer, owes his literature to J.R.R. Tolkien’s evergreen epic Lord of the Rings. Set long before the events of The Lord of the Rings movies, the ambitious Prime Video original Rings of Power is filled with the same spectacle as Game of Thrones. It also includes the perspective of multiple characters across the land of Middle-Earth much like the many lead players of Westeros.

Shadow and Bone

Based on the book series of the same name, Shadow and Bone can be seen as a more family-friendly Game of Thrones. Dark magic and political conspiracies follow as an orphaned girl unexpectedly discovers extraordinary powers. Hoping to reunite her divided fantasy world, she embarks on an unforgettable adventure.

The Winter King

From Gendry to Jon Snow to Daenerys, Game of Thrones is filled with fascinating underdog journeys. One such story is narrated in The Winter King which traces the early years of King Arthur when he was just an illegitimate outcast.

Vikings

Drawing upon the history and traditions of the titular European warriors, Vikings is a period drama that seems very Game of Thrones-coded. The evolution of series protagonist Ragnar from his humble beginnings to rise as a “chosen” warrior will also remind you of Jon Snow’s journey.

The Wheel of Time

Rosamund Pike leads the cast of The Wheel of Time, a high-fantasy Prime original that deals with morals behind magic. Pike’s wizard seeks a reincarnation of Dragon, a mystical magician who can either save the world or break it like never before.

3 Body Problem

Game of Thrones creators Daniel Weiss and David Benioff have a tendency to adapt books of epic proportions. After their HBO fantasy ended, they hopped on to Netflix for 3 Body Problem, a work of philosophical science fiction based on the novel of the same name. Watch it for mind-bending concepts of time, multiple storylines merging into one, and an ensemble cast that includes many Game of Thrones veterans.

The Tudors

The politics around the Iron Throne is often compared to a Shakespearean drama. The Tudors similarly has all the makings of a binge-worthy royal drama that is rich in betrayal, history, and shocking plot twists. Jonathan Rhys-Myers plays such a mean King Henry VIII that he comes off as quite the “Mad King”!

The Witcher

Netflix’s The Witcher has the grim period setting and blood-soaked action of Game of Thrones. But owing to the video game franchise of the same name, The Witcher also boasts a fantasy world that stands out on its own. Henry Cavill’s performance as the monster-hunting Geralt makes the show all the more immersive.

Rome

As its title suggests, this classic HBO drama is set in times of the ancient Roman empire. Much of Game of Thrones’ royal politics are echoed here but with more historical detail.
