Although it may not have given us the fairytale ending we all wanted, it did give us the hype that will linger on for a while. Game of Thrones dominated our TV screens and gained massive followership that wholeheartedly follows the series while it lasted.
From the constant desire for liberation to the intriguing swordfights and naked scenes, it’s hard not to like GOT. The series exhibited unexpected plot twists and turns across seventy-three episodes and showcased character complexity that locks any viewer in.
In what seemed like an emotional farewell for the fans and cast members, the series aired the last episode of its final season and finally brought HBO’s biggest TV show to an end. But that is not where it ends.

In the wake of GOT’s final episode, it left something behind. The demand for Fantasy Series that will explode expectations in a similar fashion as GOT saw a tremendous increase. This sudden crave for Fantasy Series only mean one thing-more people are going to be looking out for series with GOT-styled skulduggery and sorcery.

However, if you are so eager to fill the void that your beloved Game of Thrones series left in your entertainment lifestyle, these three TV series may be worth your while.
Black Sails truly replicate the feisty and courageous fights, drama and sex scenes of GOT in an entertaining, profanity-riddled pirate TV show. The series portrayed a great storyline of characters struggling to create a life for themselves against all the odds. It is available for streaming on Hulu.
GunPowder is available for stream on HBO and features one of the most popular cast members from GOT- Kit Harington.
