Game of Thrones is over. You’ve spent time rewatching the episodes but now it’s time to find something else to watch. Here are eight shows to watch if you miss Game of Thrones.

After eight seasons, Game of Thrones came to an end earlier this year. Love the ending or not, that’s what we’re getting. HBO and the showrunners are certainly not planning on redoing anything.

Right now, you’re possibly rewatching all eight seasons and 73 episodes. You want to see how it all fits together. While you’re doing that, spend some time getting a list of shows like Game of Thrones to watch.

There are many shows out there that can fill the void. Here are eight shows I heavily recommend for GoT fans.

8. The Tudors

More from Game of Thrones

While The Tudors isn’t a fantasy show, it is something to check out as a fan of Game of Thrones. If one of the things you loved about GoT was the nudity and violence, you’re certainly covered with this SHOWTIME series.

Set in the world of Henry VIII, the series tells the story of his life with his six wives. It all starts with the birth of his illegitimate son and infatuation with Anne Boleyn during the marriage to Catherine of Aragon and continues until the very end of his days.

There’s plenty of torture, beheadings, conspiracies, and more. This is a series that made names of Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Natalie Dormer, Henry Cavill, and so many more. It also gave us more from Maria Doyle Kennedy and Sam Neill.

The Tudors has four seasons. All episodes were written by showrunner Michael Hirst. If you’re looking for something that’s historically accurate, then you’re going to want to look at another series. This is pure historical fiction.
