Finished The Witcher? Here’s What to Watch Next

Finished The Witcher? Here's What to Watch Next
Written by Louise Vee

Our Tribute to The Witcher


That’s How He Became The Witcher

He was working as an extra over on Acre street.
‘Till the studio got someone else to wear the scarlet sheet.
What was he to do?
Where was he to go?
He was out on his sphincter.
So over the street from Burbank to the Netflix door.
He was there to borrow sugar,
But the producer saw more.
He had guile!
He had hair!
He was there.
That’s how he became the Witcher!
Who would have guessed that the guy with the cape,
Would go on and on… about it being fate?
Now the public finds him exciting
(Watch out Renfri!)
And the fans are actually smiling
(Such C G I!)
He is pest control in leather when everybody else is wearing wool.
The handsome boy from Jersey.
The Witcher is cool!

So, you watched The Witcher, and monster withdrawal is probably setting in by now.

Wondering what to watch next to fill that craving for more mythical creatures and beasts alike? The following show might just feed your habit:

Grimm: Monster Hunters, Homicides Mysteries, and Fantastical Mythology



Grimm follows the story of Nick Burkhardt, a Portland homicide detective who begins having visions of seemingly ordinary people turning into horrific monsters. It turns out, Nick is a “Grimm” and is capable of seeing into the supernatural world. Now, it is up to Nick to protect humanity from the evil creatures lurking in the beyond.

The show offers a fresh take on the tales of the Brothers Grimm, incorporating their stories into present-day crime/mystery plotlines. Grimm is dark, terrifying, and perfect for crime-drama lovers. The show aired from 2011-2017 with 123 episodes making it ideal for hours of binging.

October Faction: Monster Hunting Brings Family Together



October Faction, like The Witcher, is a brand-new series from Netflix. A retired couple, Deloris and Fred Allen, has decided to take a step back from their adventurous life of monster hunting. When called back to work for a top-secret organization known as Presidio, they must do so while trying to hide their true identity from their teenage children.

October Faction is more of a family/coming-of-age centered show based on the classic comic by Steve Niles and Damien Worm. Netflix’s version of October Faction isn’t quite as dark as the original but still deals with some of its larger existential topics. The weapons are new and more high-tech. With that, the show provides a modern, science fiction feel to the monster hunting genre.

A subscription to Netflix is all you’ll need to catch the first season of this new and exciting monster-hunting show.

  • Netflix

Merlin: Medieval times, a Legendary Sorcerer, and Exciting Adventures



Next on our list is Merlin. The story of Merlin takes place during the days of King Arthur. Merlin is a young wizard struggling to survive the times and is a servant to the crown prince, and later king, Arthur . The two form an unlikely bond, as Merlin helps Arthur to gain power and prestige in nobility.

Although Merlin is technically not a monster show, it does follow the theme of having a monster of the week. Each week the characters face off against dangerous threats toward Arthur and the Kingdom. Merlin must battle beastly foes to protect the kingdom of Camelot from certain doom. The show is also very mythical and magical. If you’re into period shows, then Merlin is perfect for you.

Angel/Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Star-crossed Lovers, Blutbad, Vampires



Buffy the Vampire Slayer follows a young woman who has been chosen to save the human race from an evil slew of vampires. Buffy encounters many monstrous creatures on her journey, but she does so with the help of her supportive friends. Together, they call themselves “The Scooby Gang.”

Angel is a similar show about a vampire who has gained a soul and is on the road to redemption. Buffy and Angel cross paths several times, while the actors who play Buffy and Angel respectively appear on each other’s shows. Both shows aired in the late 1990s and early 2000s. These are two great shows that complement each other nicely but are also very entertaining on their own.

Buffy Available on:

  • Hulu
  • YouTube
  • Amazon Prime
  • Google Play
  • Vudu

Angel Available on:

Mountain Monsters: Where Monsters Meet Reality



Mountain Monsters is a truly unique spin on the monster hunting genre. A group of mountaineers treks the Appalachians in search of mysterious and unidentified creatures such as the Wampus and Mothman. Are the monsters real or legend? This seems like more of a reality show, but these things are usually 90% fiction. Mountain Monsters is simply a fun and enjoyable piece of television.

  • YouTube TV
  • Hulu
  • Sling TV
  • fuboTV
  • Philo

There you have it, several hundred more hours to add to your monster binging obsession.
