Struggling with life after Lucifer? It’s understandable; not only was the show fun to watch with exciting storylines, but it also featured a lot of interesting characters that everyone could enjoy.

Lucifer lasted six seasons and certainly went out with a bang. But, it undoubtedly left you with a hole in your heart that needs filling.

Luckily, I have the answer. In this article, you’ll discover 15 TV shows you can binge through to take your mind off Lucifer.

Be sure to read through them all and choose which one you’re going to watch first.

Evil

Evil is one of the best TV shows currently airing at the time of writing and is an excellent show to watch after Lucifer.

If you enjoyed Lucifer’s paranormal aspects and romantic tension, you’ll love it.

It follows a forensic psychologist who joins a priest to investigate paranormal cases where an exorcism could be required.

Both characters come from different backgrounds and have varying beliefs. However, there is an ungodly amount of serial tension between them.

The show stars Mike Colter, Katja Herbers, Michael Emerson, Christine Lahti, Peter Scolari, and Aasif Mandvi.

The Sandman

This popular TV show follows an immortal named Morpheus, who has just escaped decades of imprisonment.

He seeks to rebuild his kingdom and find the English magician who trapped him for so long.

However, his path to restoring his kingdom crosses with Lucifer.

Now don’t get too excited; it’s not Tom Ellis’ Lucifer. But Gwendoline Christie, who plays the character, does an excellent job.

She’s best known for her roles in Game Of Thrones, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Hunger Games, Wednesday, and The Darkest Minds.

Supernatural

Sam and Dean are two brothers who love to hunt. However, they harbour a secret their family has kept hidden for generations… they’re monster hunters.

Whether it’s vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, demons, or any other mythical creature, they’ll hunt it to protect humanity.

But, when their father goes missing during a solo hunt, the two embark on a state-wide search for him while solving supernatural mysteries along the way.

The show ran for 15 seasons and averaged 24 episodes per season, so you’ll have a lot to binge through.

It’s similar to Lucifer in the sense that it covers supernatural themes and even has Lucifer himself in the show.

Doux Reviews called the show “scary, funny, clever, and dark, daring and often unpredictable”, sounds like everything you need from a show.

The show stars Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Jim Beaver.

Constantine

Demon hunter John Constantine had long given up fighting the good fight and wanted to live his life away from the occult world.

However, when demons target the daughter of his close friend, he’s left with no choice but to hunt them down to protect her.

It turns out she has a special gift that allows her to predict supernatural occurrences before they happen.

She joins Constantine, and the pair travel around Hunting demons before they can cause further damage.

The show stars Matt Ryan, Angelica Celaya, Charles Halford, Juliana Harkavy, and Lucy Griffiths.

Forever

Did you enjoy watching a good-looking man of power solving crimes? It was a popular aspect of Lucifer.

Forever uses the same concept and was a great show while it was on television.

It follows Dr Henry Morgan, who uses his 200 years of experience to solve murder cases for the NYPD. He also hopes to figure out what’s causing his immortality.

The show is fascinating and lures you in, leaving you wanting to know what happens next. Unfortunately, the show only lasted one season, so you’d need to read fan fiction to know what happens next.

It stars Ioan Gruffudd, known for his roles in Fantastic 4, Liar, King Arthur, Harrow, 102 Dalmatians, Titanic, and many others.

Moonlight

Moonlight follows Mick St John, a vampire and investigator who goes around solving crimes… sound familiar? It should; the show no doubt gave the producers of Lucifer some ideas.

However, Mick St John is still haunted by the memory of his wife, who turned him into a vampire 60 years ago, leaving him as the monster he now sees himself as.

To make matters worse, he begins to fall for another person, someone who he probably shouldn’t (always the way, isn’t it).

The show stars Alex O’Loughlin, Jason Dohring, Sophia Miles, Shannon Sossamon, and Eric Winter.

Good Omens

Angel Aziraphale and Demon Crowley are enjoying life on earth far too much. However, when they hear of the impending armageddon, the pair form an unlikely alliance to prevent the world from ending.

Together, they must locate a boy who’s unaware that he’s the antichrist and will usher in the end of the world.

As you can imagine, they face numerous challenges from angels and demons who want armageddon to happen.

This heaven and hell fantasy show is similar to Lucifer and has the same feel to it, especially since it features angels and demons.

It stars David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Frances McDormand, and Jon Hamm.

Rush

Doctor William P Rush gets fired from his practice for his partying ways.

He lands a new job role working for wealthy clientele who pay him in the thousands for unconventional cures for their ailments.

Rush uses the cash to buy more drugs and party even harder. It’s an unusual take on medical dramas, but it works.

Like Lucifer, the show’s lead character is played by Tom Ellis, so if you’re seeking more screen time with the main man, this is the perfect show for you.

Starring alongside Ellis is Sarah Habel, Rick Gonzalez and Larenz Tate.

Sleepy Hollow

Ichabod Crane, the protagonist from Sleepy Hollow, is resurrected into the modern world, where he is tasked with hunting down the murderous headless horseman who’s so been brought back to life.

Sleepy Hollow is like Lucifer in that it follows somebody solving crimes and deals with the supernatural.

The show has four seasons and is pretty gripping, leaving you wanting to watch “just one more episode”. It’s a perfect replacement for Lucifer.

It stars Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, Katia Winter, and Orlando Jones.

Angel

This show is a spin-off from the popular 90s TV show Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

When Angel leaves his girlfriend, Buffy, back in Sunnydale, he seeks to find a new life in Los Angeles. However, when he gets there, he finds there are a lot of evil characters who’re looking to bring out his darker side.

Angel teams up with a group of like-minded heroes to protect the local town against the Demon threat. The show is led by David Boreanaz, known for Bones, SEAL Team, and Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

He’s joined by  Charisma Carpenter, Alexis Denisof, and Glenn Quinn.

Charmed

Three young women discover they’re the next in line to be the trinity, three powerful witches destined to fight evil.

While the show’s underlined story is about witchcraft, it has comedy, action, and romance. Plus, as it started airing in the late 90s, it’ll give you a nice hit of nostalgia.

The show is like Lucifer as it deals with the supernatural. The show stars Holly Marie Combs, Shannon Doherty, Alessandro Milano, Rose McGowan and Kaley Cuoco.

American Gods

Ex-convict Shadow is hired to be the bodyguard of Mr Wednesday, who is secretly the Norse God Odin in disguise.

At first, Shadow struggles with his new role and finds it difficult to work amongst the gods, and who can blame him? They can be a right bunch of prima donnas.

The show is like Lucifer, as it follows a bunch of extremely powerful beings who interact with the human world.

Ian McShane stars in the show; he’s known for John Wick, Deadwood, Hellboy, Hercules, Kung Fu Panda and Pirates Of The Caribbean.

He’s joined by Ricky Whittle, Orlando Jones and Emily Browning.

Preacher

Outlaw Jesse Custer returns to his home town in West Texas to fulfil a promise he made to his deceased father. His promise? To take over his father’s church.

However, when his body is overcome by a mystic force, it leaves him with unconventional powers. He teams up with other misfits and goes in search of God. The problem is there’s a world of holy and hellish monsters prowling the path to God.

This dark comedy-drama is brilliant; it combines the supernatural elements of Lucifer with a hint of comedy. It’s undoubtedly a great series to watch if you’re missing the show.

Don’t believe me? The Guardian called the Preacher “the best show of the year”.

Starring in Preacher is Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga and Ian Colletti.

The Vampire Diaries

High School student Elena meets Stefan on her first day and instantly feels a connection with him.

However, what she doesn’t know is that Stefan and his brother Damon are vampires.

Elena finds herself in the middle of a love triangle with the two brothers. Stefan is in love with her, while Damon wants her so he can get revenge on his brother for turning him into a vampire in 1864.

The show is a huge hit and even had several spin-offs.

The show stars Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, Candice King and Kat Graham.

Pushing Daisies

Being able to bring back the dead would be an awesome power to have. You could bring back loved ones whenever you want.

Pastry chef Ned decides to bring back an old flame and decides to let her live alongside him. The pair solve murder mysteries by resurrecting victims and getting information about the killer.

However, his power is not always a good thing, as you’ll find out when you watch this show.

The show stars Lee Pace, best known for Guardians Of The Galaxy, The Good Sheperd, The Fall, The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, and Foundation. He’s joined by Anna Friel, Chi McBride, Jim Dale and Kristin Chenoweth.
