The Wheel of Time (2021—)

Amazon Prime

Based on the books by Robert Jordan, The Wheel of Time is an epic fantasy series starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine Damodred.

With 14 books in the series, we anticipate a lot of Wheel of Time content to come.

Good Omens (2019-2022)

Chris Raphael

If you like cheeky immortals, a touch of comedy and plenty of Michael Sheen and David Tennant banter, Good Omens is the show for you. Featuring angels, demons, witches and a literal Antichrist, Good Omens is a stellar adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s 1990 novel that will have you saying, “Just one more episode” every time the credits roll.

Carnival Series (2019—)

Jan Thijs

Carnival Row tells the tale of mythological creatures forced to hide in plain sight, mixing fairies with humans in a tense, murderous environment. Starring Orlando Bloom as the Half-Fae Inspector, the show uncovers a twisted conspiracy that could change the face of the city. Last but not least, it’s worth hearing all the funky fae names.

The Legend of Vox Machina (2022—)

Prime video

Based on the hugely popular web series Critical Role, The Legend of Vox Machina is an adult animated fantasy film that guides an illustrious band of adventurers through the fictional lands of Exandria. Featuring the voice talents of every player from the original web series, The Legend of Vox Machina is a must-play for D&D lovers and newcomers alike.

The Boys (2019—)

Amazon

The Boys is… Well, it’s not the kind of superhero fare we’re expecting. All the wholesome, serious superhero schtick goes right out the window with this gritty, dark, and gory depiction of what the world would be like if some of the heroes were just really, really bad people. It’s fun, intense and full of twists – but definitely not for the faint of heart.

History (2017-2018)

Adapted from Aaron Mahnke’s spooky podcast, Lore is a horror/fantasy anthology series that will have you re-examine the dark corners of the room before bed. Each episode explores a different folk tale or mystery, from killers and werewolves to cursed dolls and haunted houses. Watch with the lights on.

Teenage Wolf (2011-2017)

MTV

Not to be confused with the 1985 film starring Michael J. Fox, this series follows Tyler Posey as Scott McCall, a teenager who is bitten by a werewolf and must defend his town from all sorts of supernatural beings. Throw in a healthy dose of teenage angst, relationship drama, and the day-to-day difficulties of high school for good measure.
