6 Shows to Watch If You Love (and Miss) Game of Thrones
We're officially in a Game of Thrones dry spell. While you're mourning the absence of your favorite series, consider diving into a new show that features a few of the same elements. Game of Thrones isn't the only series on TV that showcases characters battling with the undead — and each other. Chances are, you're already watching one or more of these shows, but you can always add another to your lineup!
Think of Reign as the PG-13 version of Game of Thrones. There's a struggle for the crown, plenty of sexual intrigue, and just the slightest twist of magic and mystery. It may not be able to show quite as much skin or blood as HBO's hit, but that might be a good thing for some viewers.
The Shannara Chronicles
Fans of the fantasy aspect of GoT will likely be hooked by this series, which sees three young heroes emerge to save the world from a massive, ancient force of demons that threaten to destroy civilization.
If you mainly watch Game of Thrones for all the sexy sex, then it's really time that you check out Outlander. The series, based on Diana Gabaldon's book series, is a steamy time-traveling masterpiece, and the leading man could give Game of Thrones' hottest men a run for their money.
Black Sails is essentially Game of Thrones on the high seas. The show premiered on Starz back in 2014, so it's time you caught up on all the pirate drama.
History Channel's epic series about vikings has earned a dedicated fanbase over the course of its five seasons. Let's just say that the time you spend catching up on this addictive show will not be in vain.
