10 shows to stream if you like The Mandalorian

These series may make you miss Baby Yoda a little less.

We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!

All caught up with The Mandalorian and craving something with a similar vibe? We have your back.

While you can always plan a Star Wars movie marathon or binge an animated show set in the same universe, adding a bit of diversity into the mix is a fun way to spice up your watchlist. As the very wise Baby Yoda once said… Well, we're still waiting for The Child's first words, so insert cooing sounds here.

Anyway, all the series we've listed below are on streaming services at the time of writing and will keep you busy until season 2 of The Mandalorian comes our way. Fingers crossed that will be sooner rather than later.

Westworld


Year: 2016

Cast: Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright, Ed Harris, Thandie Newton

Westworld blends sci-fi and western elements with style to spare, making it a fitting binge once you've finished The Mandalorian.

The HBO series is initially set in a futuristic Old West amusement park where visitors can interact with androids to fulfil their fantasies. Things later escalate, to exciting results.

The show has an excellent cast and is beautiful to look at. Even better, it asks some intriguing questions, giving viewers plenty to think about.

Stranger Things


Year: 2016

Cast: Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Winona Ryder

Like The Mandalorian, Stranger Things features a super-powered young character, a group of friends that provide protection and the dark conspiracies they all need to untangle. Caution – it's highly addictive, so we recommend starting it during a weekend. Otherwise, we can guarantee you'll lose sleep.

Set in the 80s, the show starts with the disappearance of a young boy. As friends, police and family search for answers, they uncover an extraordinary mystery involving top-secret government experiments and terrifying supernatural forces.

Fun-fact: The Mandalorian dethroned Stranger Things as the top streaming TV show in the US in early 2020. We look forward to seeing who will win the streaming wars next.

Battlestar Galactica


Year: 2004

Cast: Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Jamie Bamber, Katee Sackhoff

Battlestar Galactica's plot is difficult to explain in a couple of sentences, but we'll do our best. It's a re-imagining of the 70s show of the same name and the action is set in a distant star system where humans live on a group of planets known as the Twelve Colonies.

When the Cylons resurface and obliterate the colonies, the aged Galactica seems to be the only military ship that has survived the attack. As a result, the crew struggles to protect a small civilian fleet as they journey toward Earth, the fabled 13th colony. If you like your sci-fi with a generous side of political drama, this one is not to miss.

The Witcher


Year: 2019

Cast: Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, Joey Batey

The Witcher is a fantasy show, but its premise is surprisingly similar to The Mandalorian. After all, both series follow a reluctant hero who takes on difficult gigs to survive and eventually finds himself caring for a child with impressive abilities.

Geralt of Rivia is a solitary monster hunter who struggles to find a place in the world while fighting dangerous creatures. To his surprise, the universe has much bigger things in store – including magically linking him to a precocious little princess. Throw a feisty sorceress into the mix and the stakes get higher with each episode. You'll be glued to the screen.

The Expanse


Year: 2015

Cast: Steven Strait, Cas Anvar, Dominique Tipper, Wes Chatham, Shohreh Aghdashloo

Set hundreds of years into the future, The Expanse is a sci-fi gem that blends genre elements with detective noir and political thrills. In our book, that should be reason enough to tune in, especially since it's just as immersive as The Mandalorian.

Humanity has colonised the solar system, which is divided and on the brink of war. In season 1, we follow a detective who is looking for the high-society daughter of one of Earth's most powerful businessmen. She just might be the key to figuring out several mysteries.

The story gets better with each episode and the visuals are stunning. You'll be in for a captivating space ride.

Lost in Space


Year: 2018

Cast: Molly Parker, Toby Stephens, Maxwell Jenkins

If you're into the space exploration aspect of The Mandalorian, there's a good chance Lost in Space will appeal to you as well.

As the name suggests, the series centres on a family who has to fight against all odds to survive after crashing on an alien planet. With danger lurking on all sides, they must forge new alliances and work together to navigate this dangerous environment, to the audience's delight.

The ambitious production values and intriguing premise make Lost in Space particularly appealing to sci-fi enthusiasts. Yet, the show has plenty of heart, so it can be a fitting watch for the entire family.

Justified


Year: 2010

Cast: Timothy Olyphant, Nick Searcy, Joelle Carter, Jacob Pitts, Erica Tazel

Justified may not be a sci-fi title like most recommendations on our list, but the western-inspired setting will be appealing to The Mandalorian fans. The action follows a strong-willed, quiet law-man who returns to his native town to see that justice is served to those in need.

Thanks to a tremendous lead performance from Timothy Olyphant, the show immediately draws you in. Gritty, violent and immensely satisfying, Justified remains one of the most critically acclaimed series to come out in the last decade.

If you haven't watched it yet, there's no time like the present to see what all the fuss is about.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow


Year: 2016

Cast: Caity Lotz, Amy Louise Pemberton, Dominic Purcell, Brandon Routh

Need something on the lighter side? Look no further than DC's Legends of Tomorrow, a goofy time-travelling series that continues to be severely underrated.

This team of superheroes may not collect bounties, but they go on various missions through time to fix all sorts of mishaps. Their main objective? Preventing the world's destruction, of course.

Fun and escapist, the show doesn't take itself too seriously, but still delivers impressive storylines and impeccable character development season after season. It's the perfect palate cleanser to devour after The Mandalorian. Not as polished, but surprisingly compelling if you give it a shot.

Brave New World


Year: 2020

Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Jessica Brown Findlay, Harry Lloyd, Nina Sosanya

Set in a utopia whose perfection depends on severe control of monogamy and privacy, this series revolves around members of the collective who slowly begin to question the rules. That's a slippery slope – soon, the regimented society will be on a collision course with revolution.

Based on the novel of the same name by Aldous Huxley, Brave New World is lavish and seductive, offering a modern spin on the classic story. It's not as engrossing as The Mandalorian, but it will still keep you coming back for more.

Altered Carbon


Year: 2018

Cast: Chris Conner, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Joel Kinnaman, Anthony Mackie

At first glance, Altered Carbon could not look more different than The Mandalorian. Still, they both feature a hero sent on a mission that gets complicated quickly and they both offer serious thrills. If you like that kind of thing, we suggest you give this one a stream ASAP.

In a world where consciousness can be transferred between bodies, a former soldier has to solve a mind-bending murder in order to win his freedom. The first word that comes to mind to describe the series? Cool.

Bonus pick: Firefly


Year: 2002

Cast: Nathan Fillion, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, Morena Baccarin

The little space western that could. Firefly takes place in the aftermath of a civil war and revolves around a group of renegades who travel together on a spaceship. They smuggle stuff, evade the authorities and occasionally play bounty hunters.

The only downside? It's not available to stream in Australia, so you'll need to purchase it from digital retailers. Still, Firefly is a cult classic. That's money well spent.
