Top 45 TV Shows You Should Watch If You Liked the Series ‘See’

Apple TV+

Are you a fan of dystopian novels, series, or fiction? Do you like the nuances that accompany dystopian fiction, how the impossible takes precedence and gains ground over everything we regard as reality? Then the latest series, “See,” is tailor-made for you.

Dealing with a futuristic society, albeit a bit more regressive than the current one we live in, it ties together ancient folklore with science fiction and fantasy drama to deliver epic proportions.

Created by Steven Knight and composed by Bear McCreary, this American dystopian thriller also stars Jason Momoa in the leading role along with several other prominent actors like Alfre Woodard, Sylvia Hoeks, Dave Bautista, and others.

A possible future, or rather, a parallel universe, has been envisioned here, where humankind has degraded to archaic and medieval means of earning a livelihood. They are mostly foragers and hunter-gatherers with a societal backbone composed of several tribe-like gangs or colonies, possibly headed by a Chief of sorts.

What’s even more interesting is that they have lost their vision. Essentially every person, alive or dead, in this world is blind.

To add to the intensity and harshness of the setting, there is trouble brewing between the two clans, the Mayans and the Trivantians, over the same plot of land.

When a Trivantian woman, Maghera, gives birth to twins who are rumored to have been born with the vision, a search party is set out after them to bring them under the custody of the Payan King. Mara’s husband Jerlamarel, who happened to sire the twins, is also rumored to be gifted with eyesight, but partially.

A frightened Maghra then seeks refuge among the Alkennys headed by Chief Baba Voss, aka Jason Momoa. Soon enough, Momoa becomes the target of both kingdoms, and he must do everything he can to protect the twins and everyone he loves and cares about.

So far, the series is only three seasons long with a total of 24 episodes, the latest season wrapping up in 2022, but the reviews and the critical appraisals have been nothing short of encouraging.

Over the three years of shooting, it has won several accolades and nominations like the CAFTCAD Awards, the Directors Guild of Canada award for an outstanding directorial debut, and even a nomination for Primetime Emmy for limited series.

If you love Jason Momoa and the series, See, and if you are into dystopian fiction, then we have prepared a list of the top 45 series that you could add to your binge list.

1. Tribes of Europa

Created by Philip Koch and aired on Netflix, this American dystopian fictional drama series revolves around three siblings entrusted with the responsibility of bringing peace and stability in a world dominated by chaos and bitter rivalry. The plot unfolds some 50 years later, in 2070, when an aircraft crashes right at their doorstep, snatching away their livelihoods.

The world is now broken into several factions or Tribes that are engaged in constant wars to get to the top. In the midst of all this are Liv, Kiano, and Elja, part of the Origines tribe, who have found themselves in possession of a mysterious cube that might alter the fate of Europe.

The series has garnered quite a significant amount of fandom over a short period and features both English and German languages.

2. The 100

This is yet another fascinating watch like See that follows the story of some 100 civilians in the post-apocalyptic era who have been sent back to Earth to repopulate it. The series kicks off some 97 years after a devastating nuclear energy leak claimed the lives of several on the planet.

A scene from The 100

The 100

Humans have banded together, some 2400 of them and the last surviving of them too, to live in one giant spaceship, The Ark, but now resources are dwindling, and life cannot be sustained forever in outer space.

When the 100 survivors get sent back to earth to find alternative life sources and possible means of survival, they discover the “grounders” who continue to inhabit the Earth. What follows next is a grueling battle for survival and a constant existential threat. The series ran for six years and is probably one of the most successful television shows.

3. Sweet Tooth 

Created by Jim Mickle and Beth Schwartz, this 2021 American dystopian series features a little boy who’s half human and half deer on a journey to carve his place in the post-apocalyptic world.

He’s not alone, however. Constantly casting a protective watch over him is a vagabond guy, Jepperd, aka Big Man, and the two struck an unlikely friendship, owing to their age difference but one that’ll probably last for ages.

A scene from Sweet Tooth

Together they embark on a journey that seeks to answer important questions about their origin and the true meaning of home. Gus and Jepperd form several alliances but also face imminent dangers from evil and the unknown. The series is available on Netflix and has garnered quite some attention over a year. It has received a BAFTA award and has been nominated for several other awards.

4. Dominion

A spin-off of Legion and created by the same director duo, Peter Schink and Scott Stewart, this post-apocalyptic thriller series takes place some 25 years after the Earth has been destroyed.

A power struggle has broken out between an army of lower angels and mankind, but there are several layers to this as well. Mankind is now torn among themselves with greed and jealousy, and in the midst of this is the city of Vega.

A scene from Dominion


Alex is a soldier appointed by the aristocratic house on Vega to protect the city from any sort of infiltration by outsiders, but he is secretly guided by archangel Michael who has switched sides. Starring Tom Wisdom, Carl Beukes, Christopher Egan, and Shivaani Ghai, this series is both entertaining and informative. If you liked watching See, then there’s no chance that you’ll regret tuning in this. 

5. The Wheel of Time

Rosamund Pike and Marcus Rutherford deliver one of their best performances in the limited series genre with this dystopian drama. Aired on Amazon Prime Video, the series is an adaptation of the novel by the same name, authored by Robert Jordan. There’s nothing post-apocalyptic about it, however, but it rather talks of a parallel universe where people reside with magical superpowers.

Rosamund Pike in The Wheel of Time

The Wheel of Time

The catch is that only a few can perform magic, and those who can, are usually the ones with the reigns of society. In the middle of this is young Moiraine, who encounters a band of 5 men and women, and together they set out on a journey replete with life-changing discoveries. This is a story of hubris, one unlike any other fiction dramas you have encountered so far, and it is a must-watch.

6. The Peripheral

Chloe Grace Mortez has a knack for dropping a scintillating performance in sci-fi thrillers, and it shows aplenty in this particular series. Produced by Amazon, the plot follows a young Appalachian woman, Flynne, who has sought solace in video games to stay disconnected from reality.

The Peripheral

In a world where technology has altered so much that it is hard to differentiate between virtual and reality. When Flynne is sent by a video game to test out by her company, she has little idea how it could impact her life and those of the people she holds close to her. The series is relatively new and only eight episodes down, but it has shown pretty promising results and reviews among the fans and critics. 

7. Altered Carbon

One fascinating thing about this 2018 American sci-fi drama series is that it has been inspired by a cyberpunk noir novel of the same name by Richard K. Morgan. Naturally, you can expect the script to be top-notch and star a stellar cast of Joel Kinnaman, Anthony Mackie, and Martha Higareda, and there’s simply no room for error in terms of acting.

A scene from Altered Carbon

8. The Witcher

Henry Cavill and Freya Allan turn up the heat with this riveting action drama series that is loosely adapted from a book series of the same name by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski.

By dint of his superhuman strength and flexibility when it comes to wielding the sword, he has to face many scrupulous beasts and monsters.

However, his life does a complete flip when he crosses paths with a wily sorceress and a young princess with magical powers, and now the three need to stick together to navigate the unknown. The series has already won 5 awards and 23 nominations, including three primetime Emmy awards, and should make up for an unapologetic watch.

9. The Walking Dead: World Beyond

If you’re into horror drama series that also borders on dystopian and ridiculousness, then this is the show for you. Spanning 11 seasons over 12 years, the show has undoubtedly gained quite some traction and critical appraisal. Deputy sheriff Rick Grimes has been in a coma following a shootout for quite some time, but when he finally makes it out of it, he’s in for a treat.

A scene from The Walking Dead: World Beyond

The series won 2 primetime Emmy awards, 83 other awards, and 235 nominations in all.

10. The Nevers

Produced by HBO and starring new actors like Laura Donnelly, Ann Skelly, and Eleanor Tomlinson, this 2021 American sci-fi drama series is probably the one you should watch out for. The narrative follows a trio of Victorian women who possess magical abilities and now have to channel them for the greater good of mankind.

The Nevers poster

On the way, they encounter several evils and relentless enemies who threaten their plan of action and probably their lives.

12. Raised by Wolves

Written and created by Aaron Guzikowski, this futuristic thriller series stars Amanda Collin, Travis Fimmel, Abubakar Salim, and Niamh Algar.

A scene from Raised by Wolves

Their task is not an easy one when the Mithraic arrive at the scene, and they look forward to imposing strict religious sanctions in place.

Jennifer Connelly in Snowpiercer


They have sought refuge on a perpetually moving train that revolves around the globe, but as is normal, the struggle for existence is rife with disputes over dominance, class struggle, and caste hierarchy. The train itself, termed the “Eternal Engine,” is a fascinating thing to take note of; if it stops for more than 13 minutes, the riders will freeze to death. Starring Jennifer Connelly and Sean Bean, this show is one to look out for.

14. Van Helsing

We have all heard the legend of Van Helsing, the celebrated vampire hunter often credited with killing or hunting down Count Dracula. This series follows the story of Vanessa Helsing, a relative of Van Helsing, who wakes up from the dead some five years after vampires have taken over the world.

A scene from Van Helsing

Van Helsing

However, Vanessa realizes pretty quickly that she possesses a superpower- she is immune to vampire bites and hence cannot be transformed into one. This gives Vanessa a leg up over the vampire clan, who feel threatened by her existence and want to take her down or at least bring her over to their side. The series lasted for five years and spanned five seasons, and won several awards and nominations.

15. Fear the Walking Dead

This series is a spinoff of the hugely successful drama Walking Dead that shows a band of teenagers fighting it out on the West Coast when the entire city of Atlanta is falling under the zombie attack. It shows how the strain of zombies first took precedence in the south and later spread out to California, where Rick was still in a coma.

A scene from Fear the Walking Dead

Fear the Walking Dead

Based on the graphic novel series by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson, the show has quickly garnered quite a lot of popularity and appeal among the people who loved Walking Dead. If you like to see and are interested in watching more such dystopian thrillers, then you could easily switch to this spin-off that promises to be a riveting watch.

16. Westworld

Inspired by Michael Crichton’s series, Westworld, this 2016 American dystopian thriller series features some of the bigger names in Hollywood, like Anthony Hopkins and Jeffrey Wright.

The series revolves around a Wild West theme park artificially engineered by aging scientist Dr. Robert Ford, where androids have found residence, and humans are invited to come in and engage in all sorts of fantasies that the outside world would not permit.

Westworld poster


This creates some discord between humans and androids, with Ford at the helm of it and pulling all the strings in this simulation. The series packs in a punch right from the first season and gets better with each passing season. It ran for six years and has won 7 Primetime Emmy awards, 53 other awards, and 205 nominations in all.

17. Halo

Creators Steven Kane and Kyle Killen have taken up an ambitious project with this futuristic drama series that focuses on a dystopian world where aliens seem to have taken over, and now there’s a rift between aliens and humans on who should reclaim the earth. It is an epic 26th-century showdown where humans are trying to fight off an alien invasion by playing video games.

A scene from Halo


There isn’t much to go by as the series kicked off in 2022 itself and is just one season and eleven episodes down. Even then, it has garnered quite a fair bit of critical acclaim, as is evident from the four awards it was won to date. It stars a few new actors like Pablo Schreiber, Natasha Culzac, Olive Gray, and an Indian actress, Shabana Azmi. 

18. Travelers

Created by Brad Wright, this American dystopian thriller drama series features Eric McCormick as FBI Special Agent Grant MacLaren, who is the leader of a mysterious group called Travelers who have been entrusted with the responsibility of sending consciousness back through time and directly into the 21st-century inhabitants of Earth.

Travelers poster


Grant has to work secretly with a couple of other fellow Travelers like Marcy, a young and intellectually but physically challenged woman, her social worker, David, high school quarterback Trevor, and others. They are all that stand between humankind and a terrible future that could potentially threaten their survival.

19. Under the Dome

Created by Brian K. Vaughan, the series focuses on a small town suddenly trapped inside a transparent dome one fine morning and inexplicably shut off from the outside world. Once they’re trapped inside, the situation takes a post-apocalyptic turn where humans must decide how to survive and figure out a way to make it out alive.

A scene from Under the Dome

Under the Dome

20. Colony

This 2016 American dystopian thriller series focuses on a family shortly that tries to balance between maintaining a normal livelihood and staying together, all the while being forced to make choices to ensure their very own survival. LA has been taken over by a band of intruders who look forward to imposing some autocratic regime over the city.

A scene from Colony


In such tumultuous times, some people have decided to side with the authorities and ensure their protection, whereas others who chose to defy them faced inimitable consequences. Starring Josh Holloway, Sarah Wayne Callies, and Peter Jacobson, this show delivers with promise and doesn’t let down your expectations. 

21. Salvation

This American drama doesn’t focus exactly on a dystopian narrative where the World as we know it is over and robots have taken over. However, the feeling and the vibe remain the same. MIT grad student Liam has discovered that an asteroid is heading towards Earth, and in another six months, time would potentially destroy every creation on the face of Earth.

A scene from Salvation


He finds common ground with tech superstar Darius Tanz, and they put together a group of experts in space science, like Grace, Jillian, and Harris, to decide on their next course of action. The series has not won a lot of recognition in the field of sci-fi dramas, but it does pack in a similar narrative of the struggle for existence.

22. War of the Worlds

This post-apocalyptic war series has been loosely inspired by HG Wells’ novel of the same name and is narrated in an Anglo-French style and dialect. When extraterrestrial creatures gear up to launch a planned assault on Earth, thereby wiping more than half of humanity away, it creates pockets of survivors banding together to fight them as well as protect their existence on Earth.

Daisy Edgar Jones in War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds

Told in a style that is pretty similar to the series, Walking Dead, the series created by Howard Overman also stars Daisy Edgar Jones, Gabriel Byrne, Lea Drucker, and Paul Gorostidi. If you loved watching “See,” then this dystopian thriller will take you on a rollercoaster ride. 

23. DMZ

This American dystopian miniseries is once again adapted from a comic book series of the same name authored by Riccardo Burchielli and Brian Wood and is produced by HBO. It is a period drama of sorts where the Second American Civil War has reared its ugly head, and Manhattan island has been demilitarized as a sort of embalmer.

Rosario Dawson in DMZ


In the middle of all this is NYC medic Alma Ortega who is on the lookout for her son, who has wandered off during their evacuation from Manhattan. Starring Rosario Dawson, Hoon Lee, Benjamin Bratt, and others, this show, although relatively new, has received a lot of positive feedback.

24. Defiance

This 2015 American sci-fi drama series focuses on a dystopian world in the 21st century where aliens have taken over, and now humankind must learn to adjust to living peacefully on Earth. Two mysterious people, Nolan and his charge, Irisa, arrive at a town called Defiance, located amid the ruins of an erstwhile town, St. Louis, whereby they need to practice the same.

Defiance poster


However, strange incidents occur that threaten their existence and force them to look for answers to questions that aren’t there in the first place. It is the first-ever series that brings together online gaming with the dramatic episodes that follow one another, and effectively the two evolve together into one epic story. 

25. The Rain

Released on Netflix in 2018, this European sci-fi drama series features two siblings from Scandinavia who have sought refuge in bunkers when a deadly epidemic lays its cold hands resembling death on humankind, thereby wiping off more than half of the humans in existence.

A scene from The Rain

The Rain

Six years after this apocalyptic event, the brothers come out of their bunkers and soon find companionship in another band of teen survivors who have no clue regarding their course of action hereon. Together they try to navigate the treacherous paths to survive, but even in the post-apocalyptic world, they are not entirely free of the human sentiments of greed, love, jealousy, and pain. 

26. Another Life

This is yet another sci-fi adventure cum thriller drama series that follows an astronaut, Niko Breckinridge, who is hell-bent on locating and seeking out alien existence and picking on their sophisticated intelligence.

A scene from Another Life

Another Life

She pieces together a dream team that’ll help her travel to outer space and braves the perils of the unexplored outer world to corroborate her key theories but, in the process, gets trapped in inexplicable dangers. What’s more, is that these imminent dangers now seem to threaten their way back home. Starring Katee Sackhoff and Selma Blair, the series is aired on Netflix and so far has only two seasons to its credit.

27. Shadow and Bone

Once again, a teen flick on the unexplored dystopia that is aired on Netflix, this series happens to be an on-screen adaptation of the Shadow and Bone trilogy and the Six of Crows, authored by Leigh Bardugo. So far, there’s only one season to it, and hence there isn’t much to talk about.

Ben Barnes in Shadow and Bone

Shadow and Bone

But as far as the plot is concerned, it follows the story of a young orphan, Alina Starkov, who also happens to be a well-known cartographer at the First Army. Soon she discovers that she possesses magical abilities, using which she may be able to save the planet. Starring Ben Barnes, Jessie Mei Lee, Danielle Galligan, and Freddy Carter, this series shows a lot of promise and character. 

28. V Wars

Ian Somerhalder and Jacky Lai turn up the heat on this dystopian fiction drama series that focuses on a post-apocalyptic world where a deadly virus has altered the genomic sequence of humans. If a person is afflicted with this sort of disease, then he’ll get transformed into a flesh-eating monster with a thirst for human blood.

Ian Somerhalder in V Wars

V Wars

As the disease spreads throughout the body, there’ll be very little chance of resurrection from this heinous form. In the middle of all this is Dr. Luther Swann, whose best friend, Michael, has been infected by the virus, and it is only a matter of time before he loses him to the army of vampires forever. It is a race against time as he has to devise an antidote to the disease and also save his friend, who’s being drawn over to the other side. 

29. Warrior Nun

This series is not entirely dystopian fiction but has supernatural elements to it that will make for an entertaining watch. Ava is a young teen who has formerly died, and her corpse has been sent to the morgue. A strange occurrence suddenly spurts new life in her, but now she’s not a normal teenager anymore.

A scene in Warrior Nun

Warrior Nun

She is the Chosen One, the one who’ll bear the Halo for a discrete group of demon-hunting nuns. What’s even more fascinating is that she has magical superpowers that might help the sect get a leg up over the demons who threaten their existence. Starring Alba Baptista, Tristán Ulloa, Thekla Reuten, and others, this series can prove to be a good watch over the weekend. It is relatively new and so far has only 1 season.

30. Aftermath

Created by Glenn Davis and William Laurin, this Canadian drama series presents an invigorating watch. The world is about to end, and the Copeland family is caught fighting for straws in an epic and arduous battle to stay afloat. It started with rains and thunderstorms, incessant cyclonic storms, earthquakes, and a plague.

A scene from Aftermath


Finally came the meteor strike that wiped off more than half of humanity and gave rise to extraterrestrial creatures on the surface of Earth who look forward to reigning supreme over all living creatures. Starring James Tupper, Anne Heche, and Levi Meaden, this series could pretty much be termed a hodgepodge of potential disasters.

Nevertheless, it has garnered quite a significant following after it aired on Syfy, and if you loved watching See, this series could be a strong contender. 

31. Extant

Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Halle Berry team up to deliver one hell of a sci-fi drama that not only features elements of dystopia and unexplored eventualities in a world that is fast approaching its end but also explores human bonds, feelings, and sentiments as they navigate through them.

Halle Berry in Extant


Halle Berry plays an astronaut, Molly Woods, who has returned from a space expedition after 13 years but has difficulty bonding with her family, her husband, and her son. During her expeditious journey, Molly encountered a few things that might ultimately change the course and nature of the history of mankind.

Mickey Fisher has pulled it out of the box with this sci-fi thriller that is three seasons long and has received immense critical appraisals.

32. Vikings

This series is not exactly dystopian fiction but rather a war period drama series that captures an equal scale of thrill, vigor, aggression, and entertainment.

Created by Michael Hirst, it transports the viewers to several centuries ago, when the Vikings came to power in Eastern Europe. It is a family saga of sorts, with the lead character being a ferocious Norseman, Ragnar Lothbrok, who has dreamt of conquering distant lands across the stormy oceans.

A scene from Vikings


He is raised by an equally tenacious, mighty, and powerful family, and soon a battle ensues among the several Viking clans to choose the tribe that would come to power and the man who should be crowned as their king. Thus starts a grueling challenge for Ragnar to ascend to the throne as well as keep it and conquer foreign lands.  

33. Brave New World

Adapted from the British novel of the same name by Aldous Huxley, this series dwells on an idyllic utopia where every person is conditioned right from birth to having predefined ideas on partnership, monogamy, wealth, and privacy. In such a society, peace would reign supreme.

Joseph Morgan in Brave New World

Brave New World

However, that is not the case, as would be evident further down the series. Residents of New London are assigned an alphabet at birth and conditioned to perform certain societal functions that should meet the expectations and standards.

But this simulation cannot be sustained for too long as cracks keep developing in the very fabric of the rigorously organized and normed society. It would lead to violent upheaval and revolution. Starring Joseph Morgan, Jessica Brown Findlay, and Alden Heindrich, this series is simply extraordinary.

34. Utopia

This 2013 British thriller series is more than just a rosebed for lovers of the dystopian fiction genre. It also happens to be a dark comedy of sorts, and with a stellar cast like Adeel Akhtar, Paul Higgins, and Fiona O’Shaughnessy, you can rest assured that it’ll take your mind for a spin.

The plot follows the story of a group of people who have suddenly found themselves in possession of a manuscript, possibly belonging to some secret cult graphic novel.

A scene in Utopia


Going through the manuscript, they realize it has some forecasts and predictions made regarding Doomsday, and possessing the manuscript could put the onus of responsibility of protecting the world on them. However, they are now tracked by some highly discreet international organization called The Network and must find a way to evade them.

35. Barbarians

This is yet another war period drama series except for nothing they show in the series that has anything to do with ancient history or folklore. Most elements are fictional enough, and if you broaden your mind to include some war pieces into your binge list, this can be a clincher.

A scene from Barbarians


The German series explores the conflict of interest in Folkwin Wolfspeen, a Roman cavalry officer who happened to rise to the higher ranks in the Roman army by dint of bravery and sportsmanship. His career comes at crossroads when his tribe revolts against the Roman emperor, and he is forced to choose sides. The series is available on Netflix and is only two seasons long.

36. Frontier

This is again a historical/adventure fiction starring Jason Momoa as Declan Harp, a man living in the 17th century who wants to profit off the recent surge in the fur trade. He is, however, an outlaw and, as such, has no contacts nor any expertise or insider information into how he could breach into the fur business, which is still under the monopoly of Hudson’s Bay Company.

Jason Momoa in Frontier


There is Lord Benton. On the other hand, like a thorn stuck in the lion’s paw, who wants to get hold of the trade business and eliminate Harp once and for all? Writers Peter and Rob Blackie outdid themselves with the script that incorporates thrill and action with history and drama. The series has won several awards, including the Canadian Screen Award for Best Achievement in Make-Up.

37. Blood and Treasure

This 2019 American action thriller starts on a pretty innocent note, shadowing a brilliant young woman who also happens to be an expert in ancient history and a cunning art thief who gangs up to track down an international terrorist. This terrorist is the elusive Karim Farouk, and word on the street is that he’s planning his next attack through some historical artifact of supreme significance.

A scene from Blood and Treasure

Blood and Treasure

On the way to track Karim, the duo suddenly chance upon a 2000-year-old civilization and its history, which might alter its future course. Starring Matt Barr, Sofia Pernas, Alicia Coppola, and Michael James Shaw, this series could easily be the best thing on your weekend binge list if you want to See it.

38. Hanna 

Inspired by the 2011 Saoirse Ronan starrer, this American series follows the life and journey of a young teenager, Hanna, whom the CIA has forever hunted down for she possesses some magical abilities unknown to herself.

A scene from Hanna


She is now on a journey to figure out who she is, what might be the true nature of her powers, and why the CIA might be after her. Starring Esme Creed-Miles as Hanna, Joel Kinnaman as Erik Heiler, and others like Ray Liotta and Dermot Mulroney, this series is entertaining for viewers of all ages. It has three seasons and is available on Netflix.

39. Watchmen

Produced by HBO and adapted from the original groundbreaking novel Watchmen, this 2019 American fiction series revolves around a band of masked vigilantes treated as outlaws.

Watchmen poster


On the other hand is Detective Angela Abar, who must investigate the sudden rearing of heads of some supremacist terrorist group that is led by the expired moral absolutist Rorschach. This dark, gritty superhero drama series features some of the biggest Hollywood names like Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Regina King packing in an exceptional acting masterclass.

40. The Man Who Fell to Earth

Chiwetel Ejiofor and Naomie Harris steal the show with this sci-fi drama series that is only one season long but has managed to send the bar rolling high. Ejiofor plays the role of an extraterrestrial creature who has suddenly plummeted into the oilfields of New Mexico, probably due to some rogue scientific experiment.

Naomi Harris in The Man Who Fell to Earth

The Man Who Fell to Earth

Now he must seek out Justin Falls, a brilliant scientist who can help him reunite with his species and protect them from getting extinct. He struggles to live and learn the ways of the human world, and the more he learns, the more his faith in humankind dwindles. What’s even more interesting is that the episodes are named after each of David Bowie’s iconic hits, and the series is loosely based on the singer’s original film of the same name.

41. Solos

Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, Dan Stevens, Constance Wu, and Anne Hathaway team up to deliver this 2021 American sci-fi miniseries, where each episode focuses on a separate story and an individual unrelated to the previous stories.

There are seven unique characters, and all seven embark individually on a journey to explore the unexplored, know the unknown, and discover the undiscovered, all of which might change their perspective of the world forever.

Anne Hathaway in Solos


The set is minimalistic, and the episodes are mostly composed of monologues and action sequences that’ll force you to go for a deeper reckoning than just following the plot to get to the climax. The series is only one season long with seven episodes and is perfect for a lazy Sunday watch. If you loved watching “See,” this should be the series for you.

42. The Handmaid’s Tale

Elisabeth Moss, Alexis Bledel, Joseph Fiennes, and Madeline Brewer star in this epic remake of the 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood that showcases a dystopian world where a fundamentalist theocratic dictatorship by the name of Gilead has taken over and put barricades on women’s reproductive rights and any privilege.

Elizabeth Moss in The Handmaid's Tale

The Handmaid’s Tale

Women have been characterized as second-class citizens who have no freedom to think or act. In the middle of all this is a married woman Offred who has been assigned as a concubine to Fred, a Gileadean officer, and thus starts Offred’s struggle to break out or escape from this prison. The series lasted for five seasons and won 15 Primetime Emmy awards for its brilliant depiction of women’s suffering.

43. Locke and Key

Much like See, this American sci-fi drama series focuses on a dystopian world where magic and folklore match with the supernatural and the absurd. There are three Locke siblings whose father has been mysteriously murdered, following which they move into their ancestral home, the Keyhouse, and thus become the source of all their perils.

A scene from Locke and Key

The Locke children soon discover that they bear superpowers and can explore them by switching keys in the house, but while doing so, they unknowingly awaken some deadly demon. Meredith Averill, Carlton Cuse, and Aron Eli Coleite pen a marvelous story that focuses on unshakeable bonds, family ties, and history, lots of it.

44. Blindspot

Unlike See, this American thriller series is not quite dystopian in its story or presentation but does capture loads of thrill and mystery, so you won’t feel the lack of sci-fi. Jane Doe wakes up in the middle of busy Times Square on a Monday morning with no recollection of who she is or how she got there.

Her body is, however, a landmine of tattoos, which, as we’ll figure out later, happens to contain clues that might help terminate the courses of action for international criminal organizations.

She soon becomes the target of the FBI and now must join them to protect herself from unknown attackers, all the while helping them solve highly exclusive cases. Starring Sullivan Stapleton and Jaimie Alexander, this series was nominated for three primetime Emmy awards.

45. Mr. Robot

Rami Malek plays Elliot Anderson, a cybersecurity genius who makes his living by assisting tech giants in upping their cybersecurity game but moonlights as a vigilante hacker. Elliot is in no way a normal guy. He suffers from paranoia and schizophrenia and often succumbs to sporadic bursts of high on all sorts of drugs.

Mr. Robot

He gets employed by a mysterious Mr. Robot who claims to be running an underground hacking operation and needs Elliott on his team to take down E-Corp.

Elliot takes up the offer, but then trouble ensues when he finds himself constantly at a crossroads between doing the right thing or playing it safe with Mr. Robot. This series is a huge revelation, much like See, on the fickleness of the humane senses and has 2 Emmys to its credit.

This completes our list of the top 45 tv shows you could binge-watch if you loved watching See and are into dystopian fiction. Each series is unique in terms of script, graphics, plot, and drama. If you are looking for a long weekend to unwind before the laptop, this list should cover all the expenses.
