What are the best websites to watch The Wire online?

Though 'The Wire' has long been gone, it still remains one of the most iconic crime drama series in the entirety of television. But what may be the reason behind that? It's all probably because of the series' tendencies to veer away from the traditional cops and criminals formula to sell its story. In fact, The Wire's writers wanted to create a realistic vision of an American city based on their own experiences, which they did very well. The result has been great as the show garnered various outstanding drama series awards for each of its five seasons, including a Primetime Emmy Award recognizing how well-written the series is. If you want to catch up and watch the overly realistic crime drama series online, you can catch all 60 episodes of 'The Wire' on the websites we have in this list. Enjoy!
