This show will also have a spin-off called “House of the Dragon,” which will premiere in 2022 with ten episodes. You can check the updates here.
So, in a nutshell, let’s have a look at the plot of Game Of Thrones, before getting into our interesting topic. Years after a rebellion sparked by a kidnapped bride and a crazy King’s wild aspirations, Robert of the House Baratheon reigns on the coveted Iron Throne.
Nine noble families fight for every inch of authority and every ounce of power in the fictional kingdom of Westeros. There are various plot lines that are simaltaenosly connected.
Are There Shows That Really Try To Be Like Game Of Thrones?
There is a good number of Controversies that certain shows are trying to be like Game Of Thrones. To be honest, every show has its unique storyline, concept, character expression. So, we won’t exactly say they’re trying to be like GOT.
But they kind of relate to Game Of Thrones in numbers of ways. And we’re going to talk about that shows as well.
Now, once you’ve finished watching all eight seasons of GOT, you will undoubtedly become addicted. I’m not only talking about this show, but I’m talking about any other show that is your favorite.
And when it ends you crave for another show just like it, don’t you? Though nothing can beat your favorite show, but still. Got you covered!
Shows That Are Similar To Game Of Thrones
So, if you’re a major admirer of Game of Thrones and is looking for several shows similar to it, read the article underneath to learn about them.
Let’s start with Vikings. Vikings was released after Game Of Thrones. And a lot of viewers claim that it’s probably they’re trying to be GOT. With the help of his similarly vicious family, this show is based on a mythical Norse hero who begins as a simple farmer and grows to become a valiant knight and commander of the Viking clans.
When discussing this show, most viewers would agree that Vikings had the superior finale. With a few minor problems here and there. But nothing that is directly related to important characters or themes.
Game of Thrones, on the other hand, accomplished the exact reverse, linking huge defects to major characters, plots, and themes.
Additionally, the two shows have been compared numerous times over the years for their similarities in violence, drama, characters, and historical settings. Vikings is another fantastic series just like Game of Thrones.
2. The Witcher
Geralt of Rivia is a witcher, a mutant with extraordinary abilities who makes a living by killing creatures. The land is in upheaval due to the Nilfgaard empire’s desire to expand its boundaries. Cirilla, the Princess of Cintra, one of Nilfgaard’s victims, is one of the refugees from this conflict.
Geralt and she has a shared destiny. Meanwhile, Yennefer, a witch, plays an important role in Geralt’s exploits. This show is based on the same-named novel series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.
Witcher has a great base on which to grow, as well as a lot of potential for success. The only criticism is that the plot is a little jumbled; the show hops around and goes off on tangents, making it difficult to stay up.
However, the primary plot is engaging, the characters are well-developed, and the fans are eagerly waiting for the next instalment! Witcher and Game Of Thrones are active pretty similar.
A lot of people also think that ‘The Witcher’ is a copy of their favourite show GOT. While they do seem to share similarities on the surface, in terms of mythical creatures and fight sequences, the fantasy series are nothing alike.
3. The Last Kingdom
Another amazing series. He is taken by the Danes and reared as one of their own, despite the fact that he is the son of a Saxon nobleman. When he is forced to choose between his native country and the people he grew up with, his loyalties are constantly put to the test.
The actors are invested in their roles, and the characterization is consistent but varied. Characters have strong relationships with one another.
This show has it all: beautiful scenery, epic battles, tender moments, subtle magic. Ladies who act like real women with ambitions and reasonable views as well as compassion.
And men who are just as inclined to cry into their loved ones’ arms as they are to roar into battle.
While there are some minor distinctions between The Last Kingdom, which is based on history, and Game of Thrones, which is based on fantasy, they are both in the same vein.
It’s definitely worth a watch! Again, a different perspective of the show compared to GOT.
Claire Randall, a married military nurse from 1945, is inexplicably transported back in time to 1743. Where she is immediately put into an alien world where her life is threatened in Outlander. Despite of its fictional narrative – much of the story is rooted in historical fact.
Outlander is one of the show on television that comes close to being as spicy as Game of Thrones.
To a considerable extent, what you see in this show appears to be a reflection of who you are and how you see the world. This is a series for history buffs and have been loved by many people.
5. Shadow And Bone
Shadow and Bone is set in a war-torn universe where Alina Starkhov (Jessie Mei Li) works as a cartographer.
Alina discovers she possesses amazing abilities that could be the key to freeing her planet from an evil force known as The Fold, which is home to horrific monsters known as volcra.
Shadow and Bone, like Game of Thrones, is a fantasy parallel culture. That is, it is a fictional world whose cultures and kingdoms are based on and influenced by real-world cultures.
Exceptionally well-crafted fantasy series that will have you engaged till the very end.
So there you have it, a new series to binge-watch after Game of Thrones. And hopefully, we cleared your concern.
