HBO’s Watchmen is a true masterpiece. It’s bold, deep, groundbreaking and everything you didn’t know you needed in a series. For those a little late to the party, Watchmen is a superhero drama with comic book roots and all the political relevance of the real world. The series doesn’t hold back when it comes to addressing race and racial injustice, opening up with the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 — a real event in history that many people learned about by watching the show.

Impressively combining real-life history and elements of the original comic, Watchmen has rightfully earned consistent critical praise, top entertainment headlines and even 26 Emmy Award nominations on July 28, 2020 — the most of any show in the runnings this year. If you’ve been left wanting more after that eggs-cellent finale, you’re not alone. We feel your pain, so we rounded up other TV shows in the same vein to cure those post-Watchmen blues.
