So, you’ve just finished season 3 of Stranger Things on Netflix and now you’re You’ve just completed watching Stranger Things season 3 on Netflix and are looking for something new to watch. You’re in luck in the next weeks.

While you wait breathlessly for the new season of Stranger Things, I’ll show you ten television shows in the science fiction and horror categories that are worth your time. Let we begin.

1. Wayward Pines

This appears to be an excellent place to begin if you’re a fan of the Duggar brothers. They previously worked on Stranger Things as writers. Wayward Pines was a supernatural mystery produced by M. Night Shyamalan that aired on the Fox Network for two seasons in 2015 and 2016. Matt Dillon, Terrence Howard, and Juliette Lewis feature in the film.

Dillon portrays Secret Service agent Ethan Burke, who is looking into the disappearance of two fellow agents in a tiny village in Idaho. When Ethan first arrives in town, he quickly realizes that he is unable to leave and contact those who live outside the town.

When you watch the first season of Wayward Pines, you will notice numerous parallels to Stranger Things. Both seasons of Wayward Pines are currently available on Hulu.

2. Dark

Dark is a Netflix original German science fiction thriller that, for obvious reasons, has been likened to Stranger Things since its 2017 premiere. Dark chronicles the disappearance of children from a fictional hamlet in Germany.

Additionally, it delves into the Dark past of four generations of four families who lived there. Time travel and different timelines aid in unraveling the town’s riddles and those of its missing youngsters.

Dark currently has two seasons available on Netflix and has been renewed for a third, which will be the series’ last season.

3. Channel Zero

Channel Zero is a supernatural horror anthology series. It aired on Syfy for four seasons from 2016 to 2018. With each season containing its own plot, the series brings to life eerie pastas, which are user-generated fiction intended to scare readers.

The first season centers on a supernatural children’s television show and missing children. The second season features an unusual house of horrors tourist attraction. The third season centers on a city haunted by inexplicable disappearances, while the fourth season centers on a mysterious basement door.

All four seasons of channel zero are accessible on shiver, a horror-themed streaming service.

4. The Order

The Order is a supernatural horror television series that debuted in 2019. This Netflix original film follows a college student on a mission to avenge the death of his mother.

He becomes a member of the secret society known as the Hermetic order of the blue rose, which places him in the middle of a conflict between werewolves and practitioners of black magic. He also found horrible secrets about his own family along the road.

Netflix has renewed The Order for a second season after earning excellent reviews from both fans and reviewers.

5. Outcast

Outcast is a supernatural horror drama based on Robert Kirkman’s comic book series of the same name. Kirkman is also the creator of The Walking Dead. It aired on Cinemax for two seasons. The first season aired in 2016, followed by the second and final season in 2018.

The stories revolve around a man named Kyle Barnes who is haunted by demonic possessions all around him in the West Virginia town of realm. Kyle teams up with Reverend Anderson, a clergyman who believes he is fighting a holy war against Earth’s demonic forces. Both seasons of Outcast are available for streaming on Cinemax Mexico.

6. The OA

The OA is a mystery drama with elements of science fiction, supernatural, and fantasy thrown in for good measure. This Netflix original series aired in 2017 and was followed by a long-awaited second season in 2019.

It stars Brit Marling as Prairie Johnson, who inexplicably reappears in Michigan seven years after disappearing. Prior to her disappearance, she was blind; upon her return, she gained sight and gained paranormal abilities.

While The OA is an engrossing and odd show, I found the scenes in which the characters perform their so-called moves to be very cringe-worthy. Apart from that, The OA is brimming with enthralling performances from the entire ensemble. Netflix has not yet confirmed whether The OA will return for a third season.

7. Supernatural

Supernatural is the show for you if you adore monster hunting. This CW network’s long-running dark fantasy drama debuted in 2005 and ran for 14 seasons. Sam and Dean Winchester are raised by their father as warriors who hunt down monstrous and demonic creatures following their mother’s death at the hands of an evil supernatural entity.

With 307 episodes spread across 14 seasons, Supernatural should keep you occupied until the next Stranger Things season. The CW has renewed Supernatural for a 15th and final season, which will begin in October 2019. Another long-running show is the anthology horror series.

8. American Horror Story

American Horror Story has shown on the FX network for eight seasons. Each season is a stand-alone mini-series that covers a distinct cast of characters, themes, and locales, including an insane institution, a mansion from the murderer’s past, a freak show, a witch coven, a hotel, and a possessed farmhouse, as well as topics such as the apocalypse and a cult.

Here’s an unusual coincidence: 1984 is the title of the newest edition of American Horror Story, which will premiere in September. This also happens to be the year in which Stranger Things season 3 takes place. American Horror Story is currently streaming on Hulu and Amazon Prime Video.

9. The Expanse

The Expanse is a science fiction television series that aired on the SyFy Network for three seasons. The story follows a group of anti-heroes in a future where mankind have colonized the solar system hundreds of years in the future.

With tensions between Earth and Mars increasing, the group seeks to uncover a plot that threatens humanity. Without giving too much away about the plot, there is a narrative added in Season 2 of the show. It should be familiar to Stranger Things viewers.

If you haven’t seen The Expanse yet, it’s a terrific show that continues to improve with each new season in 2018. After three seasons, the SyFy Network decided to terminate it. Amazon Prime Video swiftly renewed it for a fourth season.

This season is expected to be released before the end of 2019. If you’re looking to catch up, the first three seasons of the expanse are currently accessible on Prime Video.

10. Slashers & Anthology

Slashers & Anthology is a Netflix horror series that launched in 2016. Each season features a fresh cast, a different serial killer, and a resolving plot. The show’s creator has said that he was inspired by American Horror Story for the show’s format.

If you’ve seen 1980s horror films, Slashers is quite similar, featuring gruesome murder scenes and a lot of cheesy moments. Slashers may be the program for you if you like Stranger Things for the scary suspense and the occasional scare. Season 3 was released in May 2019 and Netflix is yet to comment. The show’s slasher will return for a fourth season.
