You never thought that you were going to be a fan of a show about zombies, but then The Walking Dead came along. Packed with complex characters, relationships and edge-of-your-seat thrills, it’s no surprise the show has garnered such a loyal following. And after that shocking finale (who did Negan kill?!), let’s face it — TV will never be the same. Luckily, we’ve got five similar shows to revive your undead TV addiction, post-Walking Dead.
IF YOU LIKE SURVIVAL STORIES, WATCH THE LEFTOVERS
When 140 million people mysteriously go missing from the planet, the citizens of Mapleton try to come to terms with the shocking disappearance. The cult-favorite is about the uncommon ways people come to terms with weird events — including weird cults. Its first two seasons are available for streaming from HBO. (Image via HBO)
IF YOU LIKE DARK HUMOR, WATCH FARGO
Based on the classic 1996 film by the Coen Brothers, Fargo the TV show is an Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning production, with an all star cast (including Kirsten Dunst, Ted Danson, Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman). The show’s a must-watch for all fans of gore — which, if you watched The Walking Dead you can at least tolerate — and slightly off humor. It’s available to stream from Amazon. (Image via FX)
IF YOU LIKE THRILLING PLOT TWISTS, WATCH MR. ROBOT
Mr. Robot takes thrilling to a whole new technological level. It’s addictive, intriguing and will make you care about hackers like you never thought that you’d care about zombies. You can watch it now from Amazon. (Image via USA)
IF YOU LIKE THE UNDEAD, WATCH DEAD SET
Terrifying, graphic and shocking: All that you loved about The Walking Dead… just amplified and in an Australian accent. The very graphic show — seriously cannot emphasize this enough, though most zombie related things are — is available to stream from Channel 4 and Amazon. (Image via SBS)
AND IF YOU JUST LIKE THE WALKING DEAD, WATCH FEAR THE WALKING DEAD
More of what you love. Seriously. If you liked The Walking Dead, its spinoff will take you into the world of mid-Apocalypse Los Angeles. It’s the beginning of the end and it’s available to stream from Amazon and Hulu. (Image via AMC)
