There are shows fans of "Shadow and Bone," based on Leigh Bardugo's novels, will also likely enjoy.
Series like "Stranger Things" and "His Dark Materials" follow a group dealing with the supernatural.
Note: This post contains spoilers for season one of "Shadow and Bone."
"Peaky Blinders" is chock-full of heists.
Summary: After gangster leader Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) returns from the war, he tries to turn the family business from criminal to respectable.
Why you'll like it: Tommy leads his family with the same quiet brooding and dark demons as Kaz Brekker (Freddy Carter) does on Netflix's "Shadow and Bone." Although he may not always reveal his intentions, Tommy's loyalty never waivers.
Throughout the BBC show's five seasons, the family grapples with power struggles, rival-gang wars, love, and loss with the odds never in their favor, but watching the resourceful and clever Tommy outmaneuver his enemies makes for satisfying fun.

Summary: On this Netflix series based on Andrzej Sapkowski's stories, a mutated monster hunter (Henry Cavill), a crown princess (Freya Allan), and a sorceress (Anya Chalotra) fight to make their way in the world before discovering their fates are entwined.
Why you'll like it: In the same way that Alina is manipulated by the Darkling, this Netflix show's protagonists are all trying to figure out how they belong but find their fates are up to the machinations of others.
Pieces of both series were also filmed in Budapest, and although the worlds are different, they have a similar feel all the same.

Barnes also plays a villain on "Westworld."
Summary: On HBO's "Westworld," guests are promised that they can live out their fantasies with no boundaries or consequences in a futuristic park, but the artificial intelligence powering the robots has other plans.
Why you'll like it: Barnes' turn as the Darkling relies on his charm to cover nefarious tendencies, but his character on "Westworld" has no reason to hide who he is.
Fans will likely relish his openly arrogant and bitter villainous persona, which might give them a taste of the Darkling's potential for upcoming "Shadow and Bone" seasons.
