2. Vikings

What to expect: Travel back in time to when vikings dominated, well, pretty much everything they came across. Vikings is a gritty drama that charts the exploits of warriors hellbent on exploring – and raiding – distant shores… and it’s masterfully put together.

3. Roman Empire

What to expect: A lavish historical epic chronicling the turbulent (and violent) reigns of Commodus and Julius Caesar, the first season of Roman Empire is titled ‘Reign of Blood’ – which should give you a pretty good idea of what’s in store for viewers.

5. The Tudors

What to expect: While it’s been off the air for eight years now, The Tudors is still one of the best historical dramas ever made. Chronicling the torturous reign of King Henry VIII (and his many wives), it’s brilliantly acted with Jonathan Rhys Meyers at the helm. Definitely one of our favorites!

6. The Last Kingdom

What to expect: A little bit Viking, a little bit Saxon, The Last Kingdom is an awesome showcase of 9th century England at a time when it was divided into seven separate kingdoms. From amazing battle scenes to a captivating storyline, it’s an underrated series that’s perfect for a binge-watching session.
