FANTASY TV SHOWS YOU CAN WATCH RIGHT NOW.

FANTASY TV SHOWS YOU CAN WATCH RIGHT NOW.

Fantasy world fascinates me so much. Not only because of its ornate attire and all but also for so many mythological aspects. Somehow I also love the ancient rules and regulations because that is exactly what creates havoc in the first place. Well of course they have their own kind of struggle, but those struggles literally have magic which tells my each and every nerve that it is something worth fighting for! But guess what? I’m so in love with fantasy that all I do is watch them and avoid real life struggles. If you are like me and you love avoiding real life, then surely the list which I’m going to share will do the trick.

HERES IS A LIST OF 5 FANTASY TV SHOWS YOU SHOULD WATCH RIGHT NOW:

1. SHADOW AND BONE.

GENRE: FANTASY

NO. OF SEASONS: 1 

IMDB RATING: 7.9/10

Shadow and Bone is a fantasy adventure show based on a novel written by Leigh Bardugo.

 It is a tale of a kingdom underlining with different kinds of magic and war. A shadow fold, which divides two provinces, filled with nothing but darkness. Now, you are thinking what’s the big deal about it? Well, if anyone tries to enter, there are hungry, monsters who can smell blood and as a result, people either die or are left with a scar.

There are many things to know about the surrounding kingdoms filled with either witch or it is a militarized province. The constant fighting between them is so stunning! The tale of the fold as to how or who did it will draw you. It’s no Harry Potter but I’m sure you will love this show. I happened to watch the first episode and then I had to watch the next. My tip is that you savour it because once completed you will beg for more. You can watch it on Netflix.

2. A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES .

GENRE: FANTASY/ROMANCE 

NO. OF SEASONS: 2

IMDB RATING: 8/10

If you are a fiction fan, then I’m sure that you love stories which are related to vampires and witches. A Discovery of Witches, television show, based on  the All Souls trilogy by Debora Harkness. The story revolves around a witch and a vampire who falls in love, but in order to maintain peace between the two species, they cannot mate. Also, the witch is yet to explore her powers and have to find an ancient book which is lost for centuries in order to break the ancient pact. In search of the book, it creates a lot of mess not only in the present but also in the past!

I know that you may think that it has the same storyline but believe me this show is not all about darkness or sucking blood. It portrays so many beautiful locations, each having its different kind of captivating history. And I cannot ask for a better casting, Matthew Goode and Teresa Palmer successfully did all the fantasy magic. You can stream it on Sony LIV.

3. LOCKE AND KEY.

GENRE: FANTASY

NO. OF SEASONS: 1

IMDB RATING: 7.4/10

Adopted from the comic series of the same name by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, this show is a must watch. If you are a fan of a bit of horror, plot twists and magic then this show is just for you.

After the murder of Rendelle Locke, his children and their mother decided to leave the place and move to Massachusetts to their long abandoned family place. Everything was in order until the children started to hear whispers which led them to magical keys. The children started exploring its power and started to know things about their father which leads to an awakening of a daemon who is also in search for those exceptional keys.

I love how each and every episode creates suspense throughout the show. To find out what is the power of the keys, stream it on Netflix. 

4. CARNIVAL ROW.

GENRE: FANTASY

NO. OF SEASONS: 1

IMDB RATING: 7.9/10

This show themes a lot of today’s taboos but in a different dimension  and that’s why this show also comes under political fiction. Growing population of the mythological immigrant, fae, are struggling to live among the humans. On the other hand humans are busy attacking their homeland. They are denied of doing anything that a fae can do but a human can’t, basically their freedom is expelled. In the midst, a lot of people are getting slaughtered in order to kill a half blood who happens to fall in love with a fae. Each and every episode has excellent graphics and visual effects. I watched this show because of Orlando Bloom, and was intrigued once again. This is a show where you just can’t stop after an episode, I’m sure you will yearn for more. Start watching it on Amazon Prime.

5. THE WITCHER.

GENRE: FANTASY

NO. OF SEASONS: 1

IMDB RATING: 8.2/10

This show has a lot of monsters, elves, cursed creatures and the  list goes on.  The story revolves around a witcher, played by Henry Cavill, who kills wild beasts and monsters to earn coins for survival. It will seek to grip you because it tells stories which relates to the past, present and  somehow everything connects altogether.

The casting was a brilliant job. It has darkness, jinx, romance, suspense and everything you need in a fantasy show to keep you all busy. I will not say anything more about it because the storyline is so thrilling and i don’t want to ruin it for you! Watch it on Netflix.

Everything feels monotonous? Specially after a marathon of comedy shows! Don’t worry, these are the 5 TV shows you can binge watch if you feel going all fantasy! I love fantasy so much that I can not even start to explain. If you are not a fan of fantasy, I still urge you to watch any one of the TV shows and let us know if you are hooked or not?
