You're all caught up on episodes of Supernatural, so where do you go from here? If tales of the paranormal and apocalyptic storylines get your heart all a-flutter, then it might be time to branch out a little bit and discover what other fantastical TV shows might tickle your fancy. Luckily for us, it's not just the Winchester brothers who are saving people and hunting things, there's a veritable legion of occult-themed shows just waiting to be watched. Even better, many of them are available to binge-watch on Netflix from start to finish! Here are 10 shows to watch if you like Supernatural, so get your popcorn ready and don't forget the salt!
As you can see by the name alone, Lucifer is a great option for all the Supernatural lovers out there. Although the show was dropped by Fox due to low ratings, it is now available to stream on Netflix, with the fourth season set to release this year. The show, which is based on the DC comic book series The Sandman, follows Lucifer Morningstar (the Devil) as he abandons Hell, runs his own LA nightclub, and becomes a consultant to the LAPD. Thanks to its DC comics background, it's got a pretty solid cult following and is well worth the watch.
9. Once Upon A Time
Honestly, you can't get anymore supernatural than Once Upon A Time, a show based on Disney characters, folklore, and fairy tales. Luckily for you, all seven seasons are available to stream on Netflix, so bust out the popcorn and get ready to binge watch. Like Supernatural, this show's fandom is pretty strong, and it's only a matter of time until you're apart of it. With a deluge of whimsical characters, insane storylines, and unexpected plot twists, this show will suck you right back into the supernatural world you long for.
8. The X Files
Just last year, I binged watched the X Files from start to finish, and it was just as magical as I imagined it would be. Most of us were pretty young when the show first aired, so it's easy to forget that this show is easily the real MVP, but it's got all the elements of a supernatural masterpiece. Before you start binging, make sure you've got some time to spare, because this bad boy spanned nine seasons, with 202 episodes (not to mention the two "bonus" seasons between 2016-2018). What can I say, viewers just love watching a good-looking duo tackle unsolved cases of paranormal phenomena. Sounds familiar, right?
7. American Horror Story
Unlike some of these other shows, American Horror Story is an anthology series where each season is self-contained and stands alone, following a different set of characters and storylines. For example, the first season takes place in LA and focuses on a family living in a haunted house, but the eighth season, subtitled Apocalypse, focuses on witches as they battle the Antichrist. Yep, no supernatural stone is left unturned in this show (which is why you're going to love it). The series is still being broadcast on FX, but the first seven seasons are available to stream on Netflix. Trust me, you'll be part of the fandom in no time.
6. The Vampire Diaries
Many people don't realize it, but The Vampire Diaries is actually based on a popular book of the same name written by L.J. Smith. The show premiered in 2009 during the height of the Twilight craze and surprised everyone by lasting for eight seasons. At first glance, the show might seem like ground zero for eye-rolling (a teenage girl falls in love with an ancient vampire), but don't worry, additional storylines pop up throughout the series that will have you hooked. We're talking werewolves, witches, hybrids, ghosts, the whole nine yards! Make sure you have your rosary ready.
As I'm sure you can tell from the name, Grimm was inspired by the darker side of Grimm's Fairy Tales, but it's actually a cop drama about a homicide detective who discovers he is a Grimm. According to Wikipedia, a "Grimm" is the latest in a line of guardians who are sworn to keep the balance between humanity and mythological creatures, known as Wesen. Watch as the detective (and his partner) constantly battle against dangerous, mythological creatures who are out to destroy the world and everyone in it. Interested yet? This one can't be found on Netflix, but you can watch all six seasons on NBC.com.
4. The Originals
The picture above might remind you a little bit of The Vampire Diaries, but here's a pretty good reason for that. The Originals is actually a spin-off series that follows the Mikaelson siblings as they make a life for themselves in New Orleans; a city that they originally built (they're the first vampires to ever exist, remember?). Although the show's promo pictures leave something to be desired, this show is definitely worth streaming on Netflix, particularly if you're already a fan of The Vampire Diaries.
3. The 100
Imagine it. After the Earth is destroyed by a devastating nuclear apocalypse, human survivors take refuge on a space ship called "The Ark" for 97 years. After three generations are born in space, The Ark risks the chance of overpopulation, so 100 juvenile delinquents are sent to the surface in a last attempt to determine whether Earth is habitable or not. I had you at "apocalypse," didn't I? So, will they survive? If so, what kind of adversity will they face? Stream all five seasons of The 100 on Netflix and find out for yourself.
2. Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Like the X Files, this is an oldie but a goodie. For those who slept through the nineties (or just graduated out of Pampers), Buffy the Vampire Slayer was a paranormal cult classic that followed vampire slayer Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) as she battled against vampires, demons, and other forces of darkness. This show was originally marketed for teens, so don't think Buffy doesn't have time for some sweet romance and a squad of loyal friends in her life, too (also known as the "Scooby Gang"). Seriously, watch the original before they create a reboot.
I just stumbled upon this British comedy-horror last week, and it had me screaming (in a good way). Crazyhead is like a cross between Supernatural and Hot Fuzz, so if you like both of those shows, you're going to LOVE this one. The show chronicles the lives of Amy, a bowling alley worker, and Raquel, a pilates-loving goofball, as they discover their mutual demon-hunting destiny while still in their early 20's. Like Supernatural, the heroes are both young and born into their roles, but unlike Supernatural, the comedy and sheer absurdity in this series will have you rolling. Seriously, you can't miss this! Stream it on Netflix, ASAP.
