11 Amreekan TV Shows To Obsess Over Now That Game Of Thrones Has Ended

By Syed Saad | 20 May, 2019

Game of Thrones is finally over! After 73 episodes, the night watch has ended! Truly felt like a rollercoaster ride with season 8 being the last curve of the ride coming to a smooth steady stop. And just like all the surviving games of thrones characters, it’s time to move on.

 

His Dark Materials

This could be the next big fantasy series from HBO; an adaptation of Philip Pullmanā€™s His Dark Materials trilogy. Certainly, the trailer feels more mature than the 2007 feature filmĀ The Golden Compass.

Looking forward to see James Mcavoy, Lin-Manuel Miranda andĀ Dafne Keen aka mini-me-wolverine aka X-23 from the movie Logan.

Status: Coming Soon

 

Westworld

Westworld isn’t your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park which is looked after by robotic “hosts” allows its visitors to live out their fantasies through artificial consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for theĀ park’s guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged. Westworld, which is based on the 1973 movie of the same name, features an all-star cast that includes Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris.Ā Season 3 looks promising withĀ Aaron Paul.

Status:Ā 2 Seasons

Rating: 8.8/10 IMDb | 86% Rotten Tomatoes

 

Doom Patrol

Another superhero show based on comics.

Reasons why to watch Doom Patrol:

  • Brendan Fraser
  • Way better than The Umbrella Academy, all those CW shows (flash, arrow, etc)
  • Has a fourth-wall breakingĀ super-villain
  • It’s just an all-around great show

Status:Ā On-going (15 episodes) – 1 Season

Rating: 8.3/10 IMDb | 95% Rotten Tomatoes

 

Catch-22

Limited series adaptation of the classic Joseph Heller novel.Ā Catch-22 follows the adventures and misadventures of a US air squadron in Italy in World War II.

Status:Ā 6 episodes

The OA

Having gone missing seven years ago, the previously blind Prairie returns home, now in her twenties with her sight restored. While many believe she is a miracle, others worry that she could be dangerous.

Status:Ā 2 Seasons

Rating: 7.8/10 IMDb | 83% Rotten Tomatoes

 

The Righteous Gemstones

HBO’s on fire! The Righteous Gemstones follows three generations of a famous televangelist family with a tradition of charitable work, deviance and greed.

Final Space

Final Space is a serialized intergalactic space saga about an astronaut named Gary and his adorable, planet-destroying friend, Mooncake. The series follows their adventures as they embark on a quest to unlock the mystery of “Final Space,” the place where the entire universe ends. I hope this becomes a long running show!

Status: 1 Season

Rating: 8.4/10 IMDb | 70% Rotten Tomatoes

 

Love, Death & Robots

Terrifying creatures, wicked surprises and dark comedy converge in this NSFW / NSFR anthology of animated short stories presented by Tim Miller and David Fincher.

Watchmen

If you’ve seen theĀ 2009 neo-noir superhero movie Watchmen (directed by Zack Snyder), then you’re going to fall in love with HBO’s another new series. From the trailer it doesn’t seem to be the sequel of the movie but, it has an alternate history, where superheroes are treated as outlaws.

Status: Coming Soon

 

Chernobyl

Chernobyl by HBO is a phenomenal mini-series,Ā Chernobyl dramatizes the story of the 1986 nuclear accident, one of the worst man-made catastrophes in history and of the sacrifices made to save Europe from unimaginable disaster.

Status:Ā 5 Part Mini-Series

Rating: 9.6/10 IMDb | 95% Rotten Tomatoes

 

I’m also excited for the up coming new seasons of TheĀ Preacher, Legion, Sacred Games, Stranger ThingsĀ & Black Mirror this year.
