While we’re waiting for the last season of Game of Thrones to drop (which will be sometime in 2019), how about we binge some other amazing shows that, one way or another, will remind you of GoT. Full disclosure, I have not finished all of these series myself, but, thankfully, we have the Internet full of spoilers, right?
Here are 6 dope TV shows you might love almost as much as Game of Thrones.
It’s brutal, it’s bloody, it’s kinda authentic! What else do you need from the show about Vikings? Plot? Yes, they have that as well. The series follows the story of Ragnar Lothbrok, a farmer who ultimately becomes the king of Denmark, all while raiding and terrorizing France and England. While there are not as many interesting characters, as there are in Game of Thrones, you’ll still love the story. And it’s only four seasons long.
2. The Last Kingdom
The Last Kingdom is a real medieval treat, and it’s a shame that it’s not very popular. Just like Game of Thrones, The Last Kingdom is based on a series of books “The Saxon Stories”. The show is set in 10th century England, right when the Vikings were raiding everyone left and right. In a nutshell, The Last Kingdom is about an orphan, Uhtred, born in Northumbria, who needs to decide if he’s with the people who raised him or his native country. Just like GoT, this show is fine with eye-gouging, beheading, stabbing, and crucifixion, the battles are numerous and quite ferocious, and the only thing missing here are nude scenes.
