Having binged through the season 2 of Stranger Things, I found myself wanting more. So I went on a mission to find more TV shows that have a similar storyline.
I’ve already seen most of these shows and I can guarantee they will satisfy your hunger for more suspense-filled mystery. Have a look.
#10 Into the Badlands
Into The Badlands is one of the most badass TV shows I’ve seen in a while. It’s filled with John Wick style action scenes and a story that takes you to a mysterious land with characters unlike any other you’ve seen before.
#9 Electric Dreams
This is a brand new series that’s created based on a series of short stories by Philip K. Dick, the same genius mind behind amazing sci-fi thrillers like Blade Runner and Total Recall. This series features unusual stories in each episode that will give you a refreshing experience throughout the series.
Dark is a new German Netflix series that follows a similar story to Stranger Things. Some refer to it as a mix of Stranger Things and IT. It’s in German language but it’s worth a watch.
#7 Future Man
One of my favorite shows from 2017, Future Man is action comedy created by Seth Rogen and it’s every pop-culture fanatic’s dream. The show features a mixed story of Terminator 2, Back to the Future, and The Last Starfighter.
What could be better than two brother hunting demons for a living? I used to love this show, at least until Season 8. The show turned into a comedy after Season 8 and I had to let it go. But, it’s worth a watch.
Fringe has many aspects of the Stranger Things, its mystery, aliens and the mad scientists. It’s also worth noting that the show was created by J. J. Abrams.
#4 StarGate SG1
My favorite sci-fi show of all time, StarGate SG1 will keep you going from one episode to another until the very end of season 10. Every episode of this show is a new adventure in an alien world, filled with action and unique storylines. You can’t call yourself a sci-fi fan if you haven’t seen this show yet.
#3 Twin Peaks
Twin Peaks is another mystery filled crime drama that takes you through a series of weird and unusual events throughout its short 2 seasons. The show was recently revived as a limited series.
#2 Wayward Pines
From the master of plot-twists, M. Night Shyamalan, comes this weird show that will keep you on the edge of the seat for each and every episode. Wayward Pines is probably the only show that gets quite close to what Stranger Things had to offer.
#1 The X-Files
When it comes to aliens, no other show can come close to the brilliance of the X-Files. X-Files is the show that paved the way for other sci-fi shows on TV. The aliens, the mystery, and Mulder and Scully, nothing can beat that mix.
Have any suggestions? Let me know in the comments.
