5 Mystery Shows Like Sherlock To Binge Right Now
Over the past few years, Sherlock has become a phenomenon that just gets better with every new season… even though we had to wait ages for this most recent season — WAS IT NOT WORTH IT, YOU GUYS!? If you haven't had a chance to check in on season four, we promise: No spoilers. But for those who did work their way through all the new episodes and are feeling post-show blues, we've got a solution. Here are five more shows you can watch to hold you over until we get another season — although just be warned: It may be another two years before we get more Sherlock/Watson action. The game is on!
IF YOU LIKE COMPLEX VILLAINS, WATCH THE FALL
Jamie Dornan plays a serial killer in this gripping drama that follows both the serial killer and the detective trying to track him down (played by Gillian Anderson). You'll most likely find yourself feeling all sorts of complicated feelings and maybe half-rooting for a serial killer. You can watch it now on Netflix. (Photo via BBC)
IF YOU LIKE SHERLOCK HOLMES, WATCH ELEMENTARY
If your favorite thing about Sherlock is Sherlock Holmes himself (or Doctor Watson), you can get more of the duo in this American version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's stories. Starring Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller, the remake puts the duo in modern Manhattan. You can watch the show on CBS. (Photo via CBS)
IF YOU LIKE BRITISH DETECTIVES, WATCH MIDSOMER MURDERS
Although the British countryside may conjure images of peace, this show follows two detectives who solve one gruesome murder after another. The long-running show was super successful — there are 18 seasons available on Netflix. (Photo via ITV)
IF YOU LIKE UNOFFICIAL DETECTIVES WITH JOKES, WATCH MISS FISHER'S MURDER MYSTERIES
If you're more into light-hearted murder mysteries (or at least love the beginning of Sherlock episodes when everyone's cracking jokes), tune into this colorful series about a glamorous detective in 1920s Australia. It's available to stream from Netflix. (Photo via Netflix)
IF YOU LIKE LITERARY DETECTIVES, WATCH POIROT
Sherlock is to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as Poirot is to Agatha Christie. The first lady of murder mysteries created the character of Hercule Poirot who solved crimes across Belgium, while being a stickler for perfectionism and a perfectly waxed mustache. You can watch the British TV show on Netflix. (Photo via ITV)
So Sherlock fans need not worry. There are plenty of shows like Sherlock streaming right now to catch up on!
