Let me guess, you’ve binged season three of “Stranger Things” and now you feel empty. You need to find something watch until season four arrives. I get it. I’m right there with you, that’s why I made this list of six Netflix series to watch after “Stranger Things”. Enjoy.
A small, remote town surrounded by forest has long been a place cursed by mysterious deaths and disappearances. The disappearance of her daughter’s best friend brings up old wounds for a police chief who sets out to solve the two mysteries that might be linked while a new prosecutor investigates a powerful local family.
“Black Spot” is a fantastic, dark, brutal series featuring many twists and turns that keep you hooked. A solid 5/5.
“The Umbrella Acadamy”
Part superhero and part family drama, “Umbrella Acadamy” follows a group of adopted siblings that all have mysterious special abilities that have reunited after their father dies. Think of this series as a dark twist on the superhero genre that tackles subjects like violence, death, addiction, sexuality, and family. 4 1/2/5.
How it’s like “Stranger Things”: “The Umbrella Acadamy” is filled with dark comedy and it’s all about family.
Melanie Scrofano stars as Wynonna Earp in the series adaptation of Beau Smith’s comic. Wynonna is a badass demon hunter and the great-great-granddaughter of the epic western lawman Wyatt Earp. With her unique abilities and a posse of dysfunctional allies, she’s the only thing that can bring the paranormal to justice.
The first three seasons are now streaming on Netflix. Season 4 will premiere on Syfy in 2020.
While navigating the troubled waters of romance, school and family, Archie and his gang become entangled in dark Riverdale mysteries in a town where nothing is what it seems. Three seasons of the series is currently streaming on Netflix.
“The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”
From the creator of “Riverdale”, Robert Aguirre-Sacasa comes this terrifyingly good series starring Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina, a teen that’s half witch, half human. As Sabrina reaches her sixteenth birthday all hell is unleashed. This young lady is spooky in all the right ways. I should mention that this version of the teenage witch story is much darker than the one we saw as a kid. Of course, there’s the usual teenage drama, growing up, love, and Satan. And here’s the best news, the series is still alive and well on Netflix.
Out to avenge his mother’s death, a college student pledges to a secret order and lands in a war between werewolves and practitioners of dark magic. This supernatural series is a great one, a solid 4/5.
