    Charmed is considered a classic in the world of fantasy TV shows, having debuted back in the late 1990s. It leans towards the supernatural and magical side of things and centers around three powerful witches and their fight against the forces of evil. Give this one a go if you haven't yet.

    9

    If you're a fan of elven lore, you'll feel right at home with The Shannara Chronicles. It follows the adventure of an unlikely trio comprised of an elven princess, a half breed, and a human as they set out to stop a demonic army from destroying the universe.

  1. 4Westworld

    Westworld is an example of genres colliding in order to create something different. The show is set in the fantastical Wild West of the past with sci-fi elements of the future. This is one of the best fantasy TV shows today that you'll need to watch to appreciate.

  2. 5Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

    7

    The fact that we are seeing some of our favorite Marvel characters be brought to life in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is plain awesome. Being able to see their stories unfold in such a fantastical way is just icing on the cake. Go watch it if you haven't yet.

  3. 6Legend of the Seeker

    6

    Legend of the Seeker had a limited run but it was a lot of fun to watch and was much-loved by fans despite its abrupt end. We recommend that you give it a try as we still think that it's a good show to watch even today and one that actually stays faithful to its source material.

  4. 7Black Mirror

    5

    Black Mirror is a sci-fi fantasy TV show that explores a lot of "maybes" and "what ifs" in today's modern society. If you're familiar with the show, you'll know that this exploration can range from the plausible to the absurd. It's a show that's hard to explain but it's definitely worth a watch if you haven't yet.

  5. 8Twin Peaks

    2

    Twin Peaks is an unusual consideration as far as fantasy TV shows go but hear us out for a sec. It manages to merge dark fantasy, mystery, and soap opera, all in one show that revolves around a murder mystery. Give this show a try and you'll understand what we mean.

  6. 9Outlander

    2

    Outlander cleverly mixes both fantasy and sci-fi genres in order to create a unique and gripping romance story. Ladies, this one's for you and we're sure you'll love watching this show if you aren't already doing so.

  7. 10Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

    -1

    We get another TV adaptation of a popular Archie comic with The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. If you're a fan of the original comics, you might be a little surprised by this darker coming of age story. Don't let that stop you from checking out this intriguing fantasy TV show though as it's really good.

  8. 11The Umbrella Academy

    -1

    The Umbrella Academy may just be Netflix's most ambitious and unique superhero fantasy TV show yet. You'll get a supernatural feel from this show but it's more grounded compared to other superhero shows. So, what are you waiting for? Enroll now and gain admission at The Umbrella Academy.

    "One of the best TV shows ever. I have only dived into the first few seasons after so many people have stated how amazing it is. The very beginning with the opening of the show gives you goose bumps all the way to the end of the show. Show one starts out with a major bang, and it has only gotten better. Now if you have a queasy stomach this show may not be for you, as it can get graphic. The story, plot, characters are amazing and you will want to binge if you are just starting the show."

    "My neighbor is crazy about this show and recommended it for me to watch. I really couldn't get into it, it moved a bit slowly for my taste and didn't have much action. I didn't think the boxes of Orden would ever be found. For those who like this type of thing, it seemed to be well produced."
