It's been less than a week since the series came out, but people are already looking for shows like The Witcher on Netflix Canada. The original series was renewed for a second season before the first one even hit the streaming service, which is great news for fans who are already done their binge-watching.

The dark and magical series is already beating some of Netflix's most popular shows in regards to ratings — it was recently revealed that audiences have scored the show higher than Stranger Things on sites like Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb, which is a great sign for an original series.

The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt, a mutant monster hunter who, when not fighting off evil, is just trying to find his place in the world. The series gives off total Game of Thrones vibes, with its own unique twists of course.

If you're one of the many who have already watched Cavill kill it in his role, you may be wondering what to watch on Netflix now. It'll be months before we get to see season two of The Witcher, but that doesn't mean you're stuck waiting; there are plenty of other shows that you might enjoy just as much.

Of all the shows on the list, Merlin is probably most similar to The Witcher. The series will transport you back to the time of King Arthur when wizards were about — unfortunately for Merlin, the current king has banned the use of magic, leaving him lost and confused.
