10 Game-of-Thrones-Like Shows For Teens
If you're looking for some great alternatives to the racy and gory Game of Thrones, then Common Sense Media has got you covered. These shows will provide the action and adventure your kids are looking for.
There's nothing quite like Game of Thrones. That's why it's held such a tight grip on its audience for six seasons. Based on the George R. R. Martin book series A Song of Fire and Ice, its complex bloodlines, twisted relationships, political strife, and fascinating character studies all reside in a dark world where dragon eggs are treasured and winter is always on its way. But the realistic, relentless violence and graphic sex make it age-inappropriate for kids. If you're not ready for your teen to watch it, try something Game of Thrones-ish. Not all these teen-friendly alternatives are perfect matches to the GOT canon, but they're set in universes rich with fantastical histories, epic mythologies, deep characters, and adventures that the whole family can enjoy together.
