TV Shows like Riverdale

"Riverdale", especially its first two seasons, is a great combination of a typical teen drama with a dark setting, a mysterious crime mystery and a comic, slightly exaggerated character. It is a series with which long hours pass as if they lasted several minutes. If you are a fan of "Riverdale" and you are looking for a new title that will hit your taste, we have 10 excellent suggestions for you.

Let's start with"Chilling Adventures of Sabrina." Do you remember the TV series "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" based on the comics about half-witch Sabrina Spellman? Well... "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina", while drawing from the same source, is a TOTALLY different production. Definitely darker, supplemented with a dose of black humor, in which teenage intrigues intertwine with unexplained mysteries and supernatural powers. The story of Sabrina and "Riverdale" are connected not only by similar themes. The same creators are also responsible for their success and both productions are based on comic books published by Archie Comics.

If you miss the dark atmosphere of "Riverdale" and are looking for a story about mysterious disappearances, you should definitely check out "Twin Peaks" - a classic in a masterful way. Before you sit down to watch, prepare a cup of good, strong coffee and a piece of damn good cherry pie - it'll come in handy! Once you've watched the obligatory two seasons that aired in the 1990s, be sure to check out the 2017 sequel as well. The new production aired by HBO keeps things level - there's still darkness, there's atmosphere, and there's much, much good coffee.

Looking for a good combination of teenage intrigue and dark mysteries, you can not forget about "Pretty Little Liars". We guarantee - you will not stop at one episode. It's hard to say whether we recommend the whole series, but the first 3 seasons definitely keep up the level, not letting you get up from the chair and go back to your everyday duties.
