A list of 11 good Netflix shows to watch while you wait for Stranger Things 4, including Riverdale, Twin Peaks, Shadow and Bone, The Witcher and more!

Stranger Things 4 is the most-anticipated Netflix show of all time. After a great third season, Stranger Things 4 should be the most popular show on Netflix ever.

Unfortunately, we have a while to wait until we see the new season. To help you get through the next weeks, months, and possibly years until Stranger Things 4 hits Netflix, we picked 11 good Netflix shows for you to watch!

Let’s get the list started with a new Netflix original series!

Raising Dion

Raising Dion is another Netflix show about kids with powers! It just premiered on Netflix this fall, and there are definitely some things Stranger Things fans will love about this series. It has a good family vibe, and there’s a big monster! What more could you ask for?

Daybreak premieres on Netflix on Friday, Oct. 24. It’s based on a comic of the same name and tells the story of a group of kids in a California town after the apocalypse starts. There are no grown-ups around, so it’s all up to the kids.

In that way, I’m sure it will feel a little bit like Stranger Things. Overall, though, there are many similarities between the to Netflix originals.

Check out the trailer for Daybreak and see if it’s something you’re interested in!


Dark, on the other hand, feels like Stranger Things a little bit. It tells the story of a missing child, and the investigation into the disappearance has all kinds of twists and turns and leads into the realm of the impossible.

There are two seasons of the first German original series on Netflix. The third and final season of the series is in the works and should be on Netflix in 2020 or 2021. Stay tuned for more news about this one. It’s a trip!


Supernatural is the longest-running supernatural series on TV right now, and it’s coming to an end in 2020. All 14 seasons of the show are on Netflix now, and season 15 will hit Netflix next spring. If you like shows about monster and ghost hunters, this is the show for you. And, there’s so much more to it than that!

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is one of my personal favorites. The series is based on the Archie Comics of the same name, and it tells the story of Sabrina Spellman with a horror twist. If you like the horror aspects of Stranger Things, this is the show for you!

The first season of the series is now on Netflix. You can catch season 2 later this year or early next year. The season will be split into two parts (Part 3 and Part 4).


Riverdale is also based on characters from Archie Comics, but this show is not a Netflix original, in the US at least. Riverdale is one of the most bonkers shows I’ve ever seen. Like Stranger Things, it’s about youths growing up in a small town with all kinds of unbelievable things happening, and none of it is supernatural or monster-related. It’s all people.

If you like Stranger Things, I think you’ll like Riverdale. There’s a lot to like about both casts, and the stories get bigger and bigger as the shows go along.

The first three seasons are now on Netflix. Season 4 just premiered on The CW.

The Umbrella Academy

The Umbrella Academy is a must-watch on Netflix, even if you aren’t a fan of Stranger Things. The series follows a group of kids with powers who are adopted by a billionaire and turned into a superhero team, basically. Fast forward like 20 years, and these heroes are dealing with all kinds of issues. That’s where this story begins.

If you like weird, The Umbrella Academy is for you!

The Haunting of Hill House

The Haunting of Hill House is another must-watch on Netflix! Stranger Things fans will probably like this series because of its horror and thriller elements and a great story. Mike Flanagan adapted Shirley Jackson’s novel for this Netflix series, which was a huge hit when it premiered around Halloween 2018.

The series follows the lives of the Crain family after their stay in Hill House, a haunted mansion, basically, years earlier.

The Haunting series is now an anthology at Netflix. The next season will be called The Haunting of Bly Manor and will follow The Turn of the Screw.

Twin Peaks

Twin Peaks is set in the late 1980s, so it’s not the same aesthetic as Stranger Things, but I think fans will like the show all the same. The series focuses on the murder of the homecoming queen in a small Washington town and the investigation into who killed her.

Twin Peaks is similar to Hawkins in many ways, and I think that’s what will stand out most to those who are fans of Stranger Things. Twin Peaks could definitely use a Chief Hopper, though.

Of all the shows on this list, Stranger Things fans need to see Twin Peaks!

The Witcher

The Witcher has yet to premiere on Netflix, but I think Stranger Things fans will definitely want to give this show a watch when it arrives. The Witcher is a new fantasy series based on a series of stories and books by Andrzej Sapkowski. The series follows Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter in a distant world, and his adventures after meeting up with the sorceress Yennefer and the Princess Ciri.

We’re expecting The Witcher to be released on Netflix in December, and it’ll be one of the biggest Netflix shows of the year.

Shadow and Bone

Shadow and Bone is another Netflix original fantasy show. It’s based on the stories and characters from Leigh Bardugo’s GrishaVerse. There are six books so far in the series, and there are tons of good characters and storylines to pull from to make a compelling series.

It looks like the first season is combining stories from the Shadow and Bone Trilogy and the Six of Crows Duology. Production just started on the series, and we are expecting episodes to land on Netflix in 2020.
