Shows You Can Watch If You Enjoyed Dark

by Jenny Thomson Writer

Netflix’s German sci-fi thriller garnered high ratings and popularity, and the audience absolutely loved the show. Now that season three, the final season of the show Dark has also come to an end; we are bidding sad goodbyes while trying to get hold of something that can be as enjoyable as Dark.

Here is a list of a few shows that you can watch instead of Dark.


Similar to Dark, Fringe is also about a world with various characters and revolves around the complications of time travel. It is a sci-fi created by  J.J. AbramsAlex Kurtzman, and Roberto Orci, which premiered on the Fox network in 2008. Now a five season-long show has been said to be an amalgamation of fantasy and procedural drama.

Initially, it got a very lukewarm response from the critics, but as the show followed with the new seasons, it garnered great response from the audience as well as critics.

Stranger Things

Netflix’s Stranger Things is again a sci-fi series with a genre of horror as well. When it was released in 2016, a lot of comparisons were made between Stranger Things and Dark as both have their beginning with a child going missing, but the ending had differing contexts with Dark going more intense. Stranger Things has marked a record worthy viewership. It has been a recipient of various esteemed nominations and awards including 39 Emmy nominations Critics’ Choice Television Award, People’s Choice Award, to name a few.

The Expanse

If you enjoyed the complexity and intricacy of Dark, you are sure going to love The Expanse. Based on the series of books by James S A. Corey, this sci-fi, developed by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby is based on the line of the solar system being colonized by humanity and a relationship growing tense between Earth, Mars and working class.

The Expanse has been critically acclaimed especially for the character development and for incorporating a political narrative. The show has also received a number of awards and has been running successfully with its fifth season streaming now on Amazon Prime.


If the idea of good and evil interests you, and you are hoping to watch something that explores this idea, you must have Continuum in your list. This Canadian science fiction thriller revolves around a conflict between a group of miscreants who has time travelled to Vancouver, British Columbia and a policewoman who has accompanied them unintentionally.

12 Monkeys

This show is about two strangers who are brought together by destiny for a mission that would stop a plague-causing virus from getting released.

The show received a mixed response at the beginning for the first season, but as it followed with new seasons, it gained critical acclaim with positive reviews. 

Doctor Who

A British science fiction series, Doctor Who is one of the best time travel shows that you would ever watch. The show revolves around the doctor who time travels and explores the universe in a time-travelling spaceship called the TARDIS along with a few companions in order to save humanity along with helping those who are in need. When you are immersed in a specific genre, you just want to keep digging into it and watch more and more of it. Dark is one such show that had the audience glued to it till its last and final season, and for all those viewers, the aforementioned list will satisfy you.
