When you think of a magical escapade usually only three, four worlds come to mind. That of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, but there is so much more out there. From something light-hearted that’ll make you laugh to intense world-building that will suck you right in, here are some of the best TV shows you should watch soon.
When we’re here talking about magic already, we might as well start with Charmed, the show that takes us on a Wiccan adventure. The story revolves around three sisters, Prue, Piper and Phoebe, who gain the powers of telekinesis, stopping time and premonition soon after their grandmother passes away. Completely taken by surprise and unaware of how to really use their powers, they are thrown into a new world with warlocks, ghosts, demons and what not. They must fight the bad guys and help the innocents escape the clutches of evil all the while ensuring they give their all to their day jobs. With so much to do, it’s no wonder then that they have little time left for romance. This series shows you the love between sisters and how strong bonds are made.
Die-hard fans of the fantasy genre couldn’t have have asked for a better show. Following the adventures of a mutant monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, played by the dashing Henry Cavill, this shows ticks all the right boxes. Promising quests, the hunt for strange monsters, and a world like our own but better, it’ll keep you entertained for sure. You’ll be rooting for your favorite characters and be sucked in to the overarching themes and of course the prophecy that binds our hero to Ciri, a young princess. Seeing how it unravels is what we’re all waiting for. So, toss a coin to the Witcher and hunker in.
His Dark Materials
Phillip Pullman’s book trilogy by the same name was a treat for fantasy lovers and luckily now you can watch it.

You’re sure to have the story of King Arthur many times but what about the legend who gave him the prized Excalibur? This show takes you back to where it all began. The Lady of the Lake has a humble beginning. The enchantress is adamant to deny her destiny and carve her live without its influence. That’s a tough order to fill so you might want to settle in.

Into The Badlands
When this show first made its appearance on AMC it didn’t garner quite as big an audience as it should have, but that in no way means that it was mediocre in any way. This gem is up for discovery again and we’re sure you’ll love it. The story is set hundreds of years into the future where US is no more. Feudal barons own the land and one powerful baron has let go of the life he knows to embark on travels with a boy from another place hoping to uncover the truth.
