We all need an escape from reality once in a while and what better way to take your mind off everything that’s happening around the world than the television? There is no dearth of entertaining content if you like fantasy and TV shows have time and again pushed the genre forward.

From big-budget series like Game of Thrones to blockbusters like Supernatural, here are the top 10 fantasy television shows to indulge in 2021.

Top 10 Fantasy TV Shows to Watch Right Now
1. Game of Thrones – It’s no surprise that we’re starting this list with George R.R Martin’s yet-to-be-finished masterpiece. Although HBO delivered the final season, it was divisive at best. If you haven’t yet divulged into the battle between the Lannisters, Starks, Targaryens, and the rest, now would be a great time to catch up.

2. Buffy The Vampire Slayer – If you’re in the mood for deep research, Buffy The Vampire Slayer is the ideal content to binge-watch. Sarah Michelle Gellar’s impeccable timing brought the character to life. The series was far ahead of its time and even inspired a sci-fi series, games at numerous online casino, and a whole list of related content. In fact, you’ll find a whole list of academic subsets dedicated to Buffy.

3. Outlander – Both the novel and the television series enjoy an ardent fanbase. The intricate storyline, gorgeous backdrops, and explosive chemistry between Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe is something to watch out for. The female-gazed intricate scenes are refreshing and dare I say rare compared to modern television.

4. Supernatural – The longest-running fantasy series in history, Supernatural takes us through the lives of Sam and Dean Winchester, who’re out hunting monsters and mythical beings in an increasingly dark world. The plot regularly alternates between light humor and heartbreakingly emotional and the transition is real. The star of the show without a doubt is their ’67 Impala.

5. The Magicians – The story centers around a group of young students. The friends are accepted into an academy where they learn magic and are told that the fantasy lands, they’ve all heard so much about growing up, exist. The series spends most of its time expertly balancing the high-stakes plot with light humor. And it only gets better over time. So, stick around past the first season.

6. The Umbrella Academy – Based on Gerard Way’s comic series, The Umbrella Academy follows a group of adolescents with superpowers as they try and solve the mystery of their father’s death. The group learns more about the impending apocalypse as they delve deeper. While the plot thickens, the ensemble cast brings out the real magic. The backstory of every character slowly surfaces as the relationship matures, which adds more to the plot than what meets the eye.

7. The Witcher – If not for the plot, you should watch The Witcher only for Henry Cavil. The plot revolves around the lives of Geralt of Rivia - the monster hunter, Princess Ciri, and sorceress Yennefer. Watch closely as the three storylines come together over time. And yes, Jaskier the bard’s “Toss a Coin to Your Witcher” will remain glued to your subconscious mind forever!

8. Doctor Who – If you haven’t watched this one yet, now would be a great time to start. And yes, we’re referring to the revival series from 2005. The plot follows the life of a Time Lord who travels through pockets of time and space along with human companions. As Time Lords can regenerate when mortally wounded, each new avatar of Doctor Who reboots the series with a new actor stepping into his shoes. At its core, the story is about compassion, empathy, and friendship.

9. The Man in the High Castle – The series imagines an alternate reality where Axis powers won the Second World War. America is split between the Germans on the East Coast and the Japanese on the West. The series is based on the popular novel by Philip K. Dick and is based in the ‘60s. Despite the somber theme, the story is compelling and Amazon’s top-notch production livens up the characters and then plot.

10. Stranger Things – There’s a reason Stranger Things is such a hit. Beyond the ‘80s nostalgia, the story includes creepy creatures like the Mind Flayer and the Demogorgon and the original cast of young actors fits perfectly into the characters’ shoes. Whether you identify with Dustin, Eleven, or Mike, Stranger Things will keep you hooked.
