Lee is an avid 80's action fan classing Predator and Terminator among his favourites, outside of those he loves Brokeback Mountain. When he's not binging movies he can be found keeping fit, attending Comic Con and wearing Star Wars socks of all things.

The 100 is a fantastic post-apocalyptic sci-fi show which gives you a unique storyline and seven seasons worth of binge-worthy content. But, now that the show’s over, it’s no doubt left you wondering what to watch next.

Even though The 100 ended its run in 2020, it doesn’t mean you have to do without your sci-fi fix.

In fact, it’s quite the opposite; there are plenty of TV shows out there that you can binge your way through, filling any void The 100 left in your heart.

Below I’ll introduce you to 15 TV shows you can watch, like The 100. Read through each one and find the perfect replacement for your sci-fi fix.

The Walking Dead

When Sheriff Deputy Rick Grimes awakens from a coma, he finds himself in a whole new world where zombies overrun the streets and bands of survivors will do anything to survive.

In a bid to find his family, Rick teams up with an unlikely group of survivors, and they make their way across what’s left of the United States. The problem is, the zombies aren’t the worst thing wandering around the landscape.

The Walking Dead is like The 100, as it follows a group as they explore a post-apocalyptic world.

It stars Andrew Lincoln, known for his roles in Love Actually, Teachers, Afterlife, Strike Back, Made In Dagenham, Moonshot, Heartbreaker, and Robot Chicken.

He’s joined by Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, and Danai Gurira.

Snowpiercer

If you’re looking for a show to give you the same feel The 100 does, then Snowpiercer is a brilliant show to start binging.

Based on the movie of the same name, the TV show version follows a group of survivors who’re living on a gigantic train. The train traverses the frozen wastelands of Earth after a catastrophic ice age, making the world inhabitable.

However, there is more to the story than first meets the eye, but I’ll let you find out the rest as you watch the show.

It stars Jennifer Connelly, Alison Wright, Sean Bean, and Mickey Sumner.

Terra Nova

Brought to you by the legendary Steven Spielberg, this dystopian sci-fi thriller will have you glued to your seats.

In the year 2149, the Earth is in turmoil as humanity has been stripped of resources and destroyed all wildlife, making it a barren and unforgiving world. In a bid to solve the issue, scientists develop a time machine to send a select group back to prehistoric times to right their wrongs.

However, the corporations in charge have other ideas, and the survivors who’re sent through time must decide where their allegiances lie.

The show stars Jason O’Mara, known for The Man In High Castle, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D, Siege Of Jadotville, The Goodwife, and Blood Of Zeus.

He’s joined by Shelley Conn, Naomi Scott, Stephen Lang, and Christine Liboiron.

Lost

Lost is the TV show that started modern TV shows. And it is one of the TV shows which has kept audiences talking since the early 2000s… talk about staying power.

When a group of strangers are stranded on a mysterious island, they try to figure out where they are and how they can get home to their loved ones. However, the island has other ideas.

The show’s full of shocking twists and turns, leaving you on the edge of your seat.

CNET called Lost “the perfect 2020 binge”, and while 2020 has passed, this statement will definitely hold true.

Battlestar Galactica

After their planet is attacked by Cylons, a band of humans are forced to flee aboard a battleship. Their only hope is to make it back to Earth, which none of them has ever been to before.

However, their journey won’t be easy; the Cylons are hot on their trail and must navigate the many other dangers that space brings.

This show is the ideal replacement for The 100; it mixes sci-fi with survival perfectly, you’ll love every minute of it.

The show stars Katee Sackhoff, Jamie Bamber, Tricia Helfer, Edward James Olmos, and Grace Park.

The Expanse

The Expanse is another sci-fi TV show full of mystery and action.

During the 24th century, humanity has colonised the solar system, which is controlled by a handful of factions. The problem is that the relations are on a knife’s edge, and the slightest issue could cause the system to fall apart.

But, when a group of humans discover a conspiracy, it threatens to wreak havoc on the already fragile system.

As the show’s set in an apocalyptic future, it feels pretty similar to The 100, so you’ll no doubt find it easy to watch.

The Guardian called the show “big, ambitious, and good-looking – but incredibly confusing”, so be prepared to pay attention to this one.

12 Monkeys

Based on the same concept as the 1995 movie of the same name, this TV show is an excellent choice for you to fill the void The 100 left.

Convicted criminal James Cole volunteers to travel back in time to discover the main reason a deadly virus breaks out in the future. However, it’s not that simple, and things quickly become complicated.

The show stars Aaron Stanford, who’s known for Nikita, The Hills Have Eyes, X2: X-Men United, Westworld, and Black Monday. He’s joined by Amanda Schull, Noah Bean, and Emily Hampshire.

Falling Skies

A global alien invasion destroys the majority of humanity, leaving the survivors doing whatever it takes to stay alive. However, one group of survivors, The Second Massachusetts, decide to take the fight to the aliens.

While they scout the enemy, they discover the aliens are harvesting children and a broader conspiracy that changes the Second Mass’s objectives.

The show is excellent at creating a sense of hopelessness. It has an excellent storyline, a brilliant cast, and it will fill any void The 100 left. You should definitely add this one to your watch list.

Falling Skies stars Noah Wyle, Drew Roy, Sarah Carter, Moon Bloodgood, Seychelle Gabriel, and Will Patton.

The Last Ship

The Last Ship follows a group of survivors living aboard a US Navy destroyer after a viral pandemic wipes out almost the entire planet’s population. The crew work endlessly to discover a cure while doing what they can to avoid the infected.

They are humanity’s last hope; will they manage to find a cure before it’s too late?

You could say The Last Ship is an adult version of The 100, as it has a similar premise but focuses on a group of adults rather than teenagers.

Starring in the show is Eric Dane, Merissa Neitling, and Adam Baldwin.

Supernatural

When their Dad goes missing during a monster hunt, Sam and Dean Winchester embark on a mission to find him and kill whatever has taken him. However, they don’t realise that there are greater forces at work, and they land themselves in the middle of all the action.

This show is easily one of my favourites; with 320 episodes (45 minutes each), there’s plenty to keep you busy now that you’ve finished The 100.

Supernatural stars Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Jim Beaver, Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard, and Mark Pellegrino.

The Last Man On Earth

This TV show has a post-apocalyptic feel but approaches it with a slightly lighter touch.

Phil Miller believes he’s the last man on Earth after a mysterious virus wipes humanity off the map. After spending months alone, Phil is thinking of ending it all. However, another survivor named Carol appears, convinced the pair are meant to repopulate the world.

But, things become even more complicated when other survivors turn up, creating all kinds of chaos Phil wasn’t prepared for.

It’s a brilliant TV show to watch if you want a similar theme to The 100 but with a lighter tone.

It stars Will Forte, January Jones, Cleopatra Coleman, and Mary Steenburgen.

Firefly

What happens when you mix space and a western? You get Firefly.

In this TV show, a spaceship full of rogues try to survive as they explore the universe while evading warring factions and the authorities.

The show is one of a kind and was ahead of its time. While there’s only one season to watch, it’s worth checking out. There is also a spin-off movie called Serenity which aims to tie up loose ends of the series.

It stars Nathan Fillion, known for The Rookie, Resident Alien, American Housewife, Night Hunter, and more. He’s joined by Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, Morena Baccarin, and Gina Torres.

Revolution

Could you imagine a world where the electricity stops working without explanation? It would be utter chaos, right? This is what happens in Revolution.

When the world is left without power, various factions rise up and assume control, causing public order to collapse and a race to get the electricity running again. Each faction realises that if they can get electricity back, they’ll have greater power (excuse the pun).

The show’s apocalyptic theme makes it the perfect show to watch once you’ve finished binging The 100. It’s a brilliant concept and will leave you wondering what’ll happen next.

It stars Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos, David Lyons, JD Pardo, and Giancarlo Esposito.

Colony

In this dystopian series, Los Angeles is under the control of a brutal regime known as the Transitional Authority, which serves an invading extraterrestrial group.

Former FBI agent Will Bowman is searching for his missing son and is forced to help the regime hunt down members of the local resistance groups. When he tracks them down, he finds himself in a dilemma which leads to him joining forces with the freedom fighters.

It’s like The 100, as there is a band of survivors who’re trying to navigate a new and deadly world, and there’s no guarantee of survival for anyone.

Josh Holloway stars in the show; he’s best known for Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Sabotage, Paranoia, Lost, and Yellowstone.

The Wilds

The Wilds takes the survival element of The 100 and aims it at a group of teenagers stranded on a deserted island. However, what the teenagers don’t know is that they’re part of a grand social experiment.

The show reminds me of Lord Of The Flies and Lost, making it the perfect TV show for you to binge-watch after The 100.

Starring in The Wilds is a relatively unknown cast such as Mia Healey, Erana James, Sophia Taylor Ali, and Alex Fitzalan.
