Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

International Drama TV

A round up of the best non-English drama series from around the world including Bollywood classics, K-dramas, and Nordic Noir, that are definitely worth the subtitles or dubbing.

Shows like Trapped: Arctic Dramas

Scandinavian dramas are not known for their balmy settings, but dramas like Trapped and Fortitude go to the northern extreme, and use their Arctic setting to create a sense of foreboding and desolation.

Shows Like The Killing: Slow Burn Crime Investigations

Unlike shows that solve a crime a week, these investigations unfold over the course of an entire season--this list is for fans of True Detective (season 1), The Night of, and The Bridge.

Shows like Orphan Black: Best TV Psychological Thrillers

The villains in these shows - and often the protagonists - are not rational actors committing crimes for gain, but are rather driven by their inner demons.

Shows like True Detective: Neo Noir TV

With these neo-noir series you can expect conflicted, world-weary antiheroes, grisly crimes, corrupt cops and politicians, and some dark humor to boot; just make sure you turn the brightness all the way up on your TV.

Shows (sort of) like Lost

Lost combined an overarching plot, ensemble cast with dense backstories, a creepy setting, symbolism and mythology, and of course of a steady stream of mysteries that keep you guessing. There may never be another Lost, but shows like The Leftovers, Siberia, and Carnivale may scratch that itch.

Shows like Lost: Sorry Guys, You're on Your Own

Stranded on a desert island, stuck on a ship, or quarantined in their own town, the survivors need to make it work. It’s not just their mobile service that’s cut off.

Shows like The Killing: Inspired by Nordic Noir

If you love Scandinavian crime thrillers, but don't like subtitles (or speak Danish, Swedish, Norwegian) you'll enjoy this list of English language detective series inspired by Nordic Noir--lots of ominous music, claustrophobic towns, and missing children.
