If You're Into The Witcher, You Need to Watch These 15 Other Shows ASAP
The story of Geralt, Yennefer, and Ciri on Netflix's The Witcher, which is based on a book series, is indisputably captivating. After binging through the eight brutal (yet so exciting) episodes of season one, I'm itching for more drama. While I wait for season two to be released, I've compiled some great ideas of other entertainment to satisfy my fantasy TV void. After all, who couldn't use a little more fantasy in their lives? There are plenty of TV shows similar to The Witcher on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, HBO, and Disney, so if you consider yourself a fan of the series, here are 15 shows you might enjoy while we wait!
Just like how Yennefer attends Aretuza, a magical academy for young ladies, students who possess magic attend Brakebills University, a secret magic college, in The Magicians.
