Fans of the Stranger Things Netflix series, take heart: Season 5 has been announced as the series’ final instalment.

The Duffer brothers, creators of Stranger Things, made the following statement in conjunction with the announcement of the season four release date: “The entire Stranger Things plot was mapped out seven years ago. We estimated then that the tale would run for four or five years. It was too big to fit in four episodes, but as you’ll see in a moment, we’re racing toward the thrilling conclusion. The current season, 4, will be the series’ runner-up to the final season, 5.”

Check Out These Shows To Watch While We Wait For Stranger Things Season 5

Do you want to hear about some shows we think you might like that are similar to Stranger Things? Then, keep reading.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

How could we forget about Sabrina? Oh, it sounds like Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will break your heart. This version of the “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” story is a scary and magical coming-of-age story with a dark tone.

In the reimagined origin story, Sabrina Spellman struggles to come to terms with being half-witch and half-mortal while fighting dark forces that threaten her, her family, including her aunts Hilda and Zelda, and the daytime world humans live in.

The characters change over the course of the show, which makes it both interesting and scary at times. The writing keeps going well, and the main plot doesn’t change at any point in any episode.

The plot is mostly about betrayal and intense thrills, but the show also looks at parts of being a teenager and even has room for romance. It does a good job of keeping feelings in check.

The 100

The 100 is the show to watch if you want something with a clear story. After a nuclear disaster wiped out almost all life on Earth 97 years ago, thousands of people now live in the Ark, a space station that orbits the planet.

Three generations have been born in space, but when the Ark’s life-support systems break down, one hundred young people are sent to Earth as a last-ditch effort to see if it is habitable.

There are a lot of great parts in the show. It also includes relationships, friendships, and being a parent. The writers do a great job of making it interesting, or maybe “captivating” is a better word.

Throughout the series, survival seems like something new, something you never think you’ll have to deal with. What draws you in is that the decisions they make and the things they do or say are really thought-provoking.

Each character has their own really bad setback, and their reactions to certain events are so real that you can feel their pain, surprise, or relief.

The Umbrella Academy

The fantastic and brilliantly thought-out look into the lives of superhuman children who have grown up and are now adults. All of whose lives have gotten worse.

Once media stars are constantly in the public eye, the Umbrella Academy members are split up, go missing, or even die.

We don’t think you’re afraid of the violent and bloody side after watching Stranger Things. But we will warn those who are more sensitive that it is a little violent and bloody.

We didn’t mind because the producers did a great job of adding humor to the show, which helped us relax and take our minds off of things. In terms of humor, that was very funny.

Every character has their own thoughts about how they handle problems and their own skills.

Locke & Key

The series is about a soulless demon who wakes up and goes on a quest to find all the keys.

But the Locke family is the rightful owner, and adults don’t remember ever using magic, so the demon can’t hurt or steal from them. Amazing, must-see series that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The story is also based on one of the many comic book licences Netflix bought. It’s about the children of the Locke family, who have to move to their family home after their father is killed. There, they find a bunch of magical keys that give them different powers, which leads to a lot of trouble.

The witchy themes, psychological drama, and mysteries in Locke & Key were just right. Each Key is interesting to look at. The acting is great, and you can’t wait to find out what each key opens. It’s great to watch all at once, and the music is what really makes it.

The OA

The OA gives us science fiction fans a great break from the stupid vampire, zombie, transformer, and superhero movies that are everywhere and are supposed to make us happy. We need more good, smart, and imaginative stories.

This is an interesting series that keeps you interested and wondering where the next book will take you.

This first season often pushes and pulls at the limits of belief and blurs the lines between reality and madness. Every episode of The OA makes you feel like you’re going to pass out. The show makes you think about your own death.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

In the show, Buffy’s The Vampire Slayer, Buffy, and her friends fight vampires and vengeance demons to save themselves and other people.

Even though WB’s hour-long show about vampires and people who kill them might be cheesy and tacky. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, there were a lot of teen shows about magic and witches at high school, but Buffy stands out.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer is much more than just a show about a girl who fights demons by kicking them in the behind and sometimes making puns. In one episode, she even sings a whole musical about it. But it’s a cultural phenomenon that changed the way TV is watched.

From the first episode of “Welcome to Hellmouth,” each character has a unique personality that seems to have changed over time. It’s amazing how clichés can be turned on their heads in this way.

Black Spot

Some parts of this great psychological crime thriller are scary. In the village of Villefranche, murders and strange disappearances happen in and around the woods nearby.

The forest is like a person. It’s dark, damp, and foggy, which gives it a chilling vibe. The trees and the ground give the show a more physical feel. The stories about the woods’ past are unsettling. Things we can’t see or understand can make us feel scared.

The series has an exciting mystery that takes place in a remote French forest. It tastes French and is like a grown-up version of Stranger Things, but with antler felt and lichen.

 I Am Not Okay With This

I’m Not Okay With This show follows the main character, Sydney, through her life. Every episode of this brand-new show would be missing something without her wonderful narration. And each episode shows more and more about what will happen in her life.

With Stanley Barber as a second main character, the show has become even more interesting because of his unique, helpful character, who later becomes Sydney’s friend in everyday scenes.

Sydney is real, and she has to deal with both terrible tragedies and the normal problems that teens face. But the way the show shows her developing skills makes her seem more like an embarrassed teen who doesn’t want to stand out than like someone ready for heroes and spandex.

People who love Eleven from Stranger Things should try this one for sure.


The story takes place in a town in Germany. When two young children go missing, the relationships between the four families become clear.

It is all about time travel and its paradoxes, such as the Predestination Paradox, the Bootstrap Paradox, loopholes, quantum entanglement, and many more. From 1953 to 2019 and beyond, family secrets are woven together with the drama between people.

The cave system underneath the local nuclear power plant has a wormhole. And the happy dose of bright 80s colors makes the show look like another Stranger Things.

This series is not easy in any way. In fact, you will have to stop a lot to talk about the series with someone, make guesses, and figure out how the same person looks different at different times.

By the end of season 2, the show had five different timelines and a plot that got complicated because the same person was shown as a young, middle-aged, and old person.

But that’s what makes the show so great: it’s hard enough to keep you interested, but if you’re in a “solving” mood, it’s very rewarding.

Some say that’s why Dark isn’t as popular as Stranger Things: it’s harder to watch.

At first glance, the main themes are also similar: in “Dark,” the characters travel through time, and in “Stranger Things,” they can “transport” to different dimensions. Dark is also about a group of kids who try to figure out what’s going on in their town.

Lastly, let’s say that this is a great choice for you if you like watching shows where you have to figure out how different pieces of information fit together.


Last but not least, we have one last great idea. Audrey Parker, an FBI agent, goes to Haven, Maine, thinking she has a normal job to do. But the longer she stays, the more she wants to know about the people in the town.

Who seems to have a lot of problems that can’t be explained by science. The town itself is full of secrets, and she has a strange link to this strange place that she didn’t expect.

Some really great main characters, acting, and story development was set in a beautiful place, and the show got better with each season. The supernatural and other dimensions go along with each other very well.

A great mix of police drama, comedy, sci-fi, mystery, and heart. The main characters get along so well. Something strange is always going on in Haven. And it will keep making you wonder.
