Vikings

If you’re still after bloodshed and brutality, set in a world long before our time – similar to that of Game of Thrones, then Vikings should be your next port of call.

Although Vikings comes to its final season shortly, if you haven’t started it, you’re in for a treat! The historical drama is inspired by the stories of norsemen, following a viking warrior and a farmer known as Ragnar Lothbrok, who wants to explore and raid the shores in the distance across the ocean.

The Tudors

Another historical series to feast your eyes on! The Tudors is a period drama that wrapped up it’s fourth and final season back in 2010, but don’t let the date put you off.

Like Game of Thrones, The Tudors is quite raunchy and sexy. The series is set primarily in the 16th-century and follows the 36year reign of King Henry VIII, which adapts to history well, even though some parts aren’t too accurate.

If you’re into your history and want something that is well produced and perfectly acted, The Tudors will be a good go-to.

Outlander

Outlander isn’t really like Game of Thrones at all, but it is a historical series with a fantastic storyline. Based on the series of novels by Diana Gabaldon, Outlander follows Claire Randall, who mysteriously gets sent back through time to 1743.

Thrust into an unknown world, she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan), a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, and thus a passionate affair is ignited that tears Claire’s heart between two vastly different men in two vastly different lives.

The Last Kingdom

This is definitely a must-watch if you have finished Game of Thrones. The last Kingdom is based on a book called The Saxon Stories by Bernard Cornwell, which is set in the 9th century and follows a story of Vikings and Anglo-saxons. Forced to their last kingdom of Wessex, the Vikings must fight for their name and hold their ground.

The Last Kingdom has received positive reviews from critics, the series mixes fantasy and history perfectly. It will definitely fill the void in your life without Game of Thrones.

True Blood

Vampires may not be your thing, but True Blood should be an exception if you’re not into them. It’s different from your stereo-typical Twilight. It’s explicit, sexy and gory, with an interesting storyline that keeps you wanting more after every episode.

True Blood has a fantastic cast featuring stars like Anna Paquin (X-Men), Stephen Moyer (The Gifted), Alexander Skarsgård (The Little Drummer Girl), Sam Trammell and Ryan Kwanten (The Oath).

The series has concluded already, but it is still popular today and has received great reviews with a current rating on IMDb of 7.9/10.
