7 of the Best Sci-Fi and Fantasy Shows on Netflix Right Now

The current state of the world has given many of us a lot of time to catch up on stuff on Netflix. If you are a sci-fi and fantasy lover, we have a shortlist of great shows that you will love watching on Netflix. They are totally binge-worthy, so you might want to get the popcorn ready!

7 of the best sci-fi and fantasy shows on Netflix

Check out these TV series’ (organised in alphabetical order) – we have shortlisted this list to include only the shows that we believe are the best sci-fi and fantasy shows on Netflix right now (March 2020).

7 of the Best Sci-Fi and Fantasy Shows on Netflix Right Now
Below is our hand selected list of the top Sci-Fi and Fantasy shows on Netflix right now

Altered Carbon

Any fan of sci-fi will love this show. Based on a future where humans have figured out how to become immortal, this show is thrilling and gripping right from the get-go. It’s not just full of cool futuristic tech – the storyline is engaging, with twists that leave you wondering what will come next. And the action sequences, they are really good.

If you want a taster, check out this trailer.

The second season is available now as well. It’s not quite an engaging as the first one, but really picks up later in the season, so bear with it.

Chiling Adventures of Sabrina

Do you guys remember that show, Sabrina the teenage witch? If you do, then this show will seem very familiar – but with a much darker twist. The people behind this show made the storyline a lot more darker (seems to be a trend these days, with lots of shows getting a darker twist), and gripping. This is most certainly NOT as tame and PG as the original show. So it might not be a good idea to watch with really young children. But for teens and adults, it will be a fun one to enjoy.

Check out this official trailer from Netflix to get a taster.


Any fan of superheroes will recognise the name Daredevil. He is sort of like Batman, but blind, and minus the financial resources that Bruce Wayne has. The lack of those things doesn’t make him any less “super” though. In fact, you will love the mystical elements that part of the show includes. There are lots of great twists and turns and some great villans – totally binge-worthy. It will be a long binge too given there are 3 seasons available now. A great way to spend your down time.

Here is an official trailer of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix.

Locke & Key

This is a newer show – and totally took the place that Stranger Place left vacant. If you have already watched Stranger Things, and was on the lookout for another great show, this one will totally float your boat. There are similarities between the two shows, especially the part about young kids being the main characters. But the storyline is very different, as is the concept. The plot is quite unique. That’s really all we are going to say, as we don’t want to give away too much! But trust us when we say that you will love it, especially if you loved Stranger Things. But don’t just take our word for it – check it out yourself.

Here is the official trailer of Locke & Key to give you a taster.

Stranger Things

What can we say about Stranger Things? Unless you’ve been completely out of touch of Netflix or popular media, it is extremely likely that you have already heard ravings about this show, if you haven’t watched it already. It is one of the best sci-fi shows of all time (our opinion, but a safe one!), with an incredibly gripping storyline and fantastic cinematography. The special effects as well as absolutely brilliant. Ok, ok, we will try to stop raving about it. Just know this, you will find it hard to stop watching once you start. So you have been warned 😉

There are 3 seasons. We want to give you tasters of all 3, because this show is just too good to miss.

Season 3 trailer of Stranger Things

Word on the grapevine is that Stranger Things season 4 is in the pipeline. According to TechRadar, we can expect it by early 2021. So that’s one to look forward to next year.

The Umbrella Academy

Include a whole lot of strange and weird into a sci-fi show, and a healthy dose of special powers, along with a lot of dark secrets and twists, and what you will get is The Umbrella Academy. An alternative take on teen superheroes, this carries on the current trend of dark superhero stories (one the Dark Knight started). There are some really unexpected twists and turns, and the storyline is really gripping. A great one to binge-watch, or watch one episode at a time if you have the patience…

Here’s the official trailer.

The Witcher

Last on our list, but not the least, is The Witcher. Henry Cavill, famous for his role as Superman, plays the titular role. And he does a great job at it too. Based on a character with special powers (The Witcher), the story takes you on a journey of adventures and quests, and redemption. It is one of the best fantasy shows on Netflix right now, if not the best, and is a must watch for all fantasy fans.

Check out this trailer to get a taster.

By the way, if you just prefer sci-fi, then numbers 1, 4 and 5 are for you.

If, however, you prefer to watch only fantasy shows, then you know which ones you can skip (watch 2, 3, 6, 7).

Closing thoughts

Hope you are safe and sound. If you are at home, know that just because you have to stay at home does not mean you can’t have fun. In fact, you can. And this list can help you with that.
