Addictive crime/thriller series Ozark is one of those rare examples of a show that absolutely consumes its fans. Folks (myself included) have been obsessively following the moves of the Byrde family and their dangerous counterparts since 2017, and finding a series that will offer a similar high after season 4 wraps up is going to be a pretty tricky task.

We’re here to help, however, and have pulled together a list of shows that are perfect for watching after your time smashing through Ozark’s final season.

Let’s take a peek, shall we?

5 TV shows fans of Ozark are likely to enjoy

Better Call Saul

Want to see a (somewhat) good guy make his way into the dark world of crime? Better Call Saul follows the story of Saul Goodman (though his name is actually James Morgan McGill) and his journey towards becoming a lawyer for major players in the drug game.

It’s a phenomenally good watch, and season 6 has just begun airing too.

Watch it on Stan.

Big Little Lies

Based on the book by Liane Moriarty, Big Little Lies tells the story of dark secrets hiding in a seemingly perfect wealthy suburb in California.

It stars Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz and Shailene Woodley – what more could you want? Oh wait, we know… Meryl Streep. She’s in season two.

Watch it on Binge.

Queen of the South

Another story about someone’s unexpected journey into the drug business, Queen of the South is about the girlfriend of a murdered drug criminal who then goes ahead to become a major boss herself.

The synopsis reads as follows:

Teresa flees to the United States after her drug-peddling boyfriend is murdered by a cartel boss. There, she sets out to become a drug lord and vows to avenge her lover’s death.

Watch it on Netflix.

Fargo

This show is dark and surprising and full of crime. It’s the perfect watch if you’re a fan of this genre. The cast is also stacked.

Watch it on Netflix.

The Sopranos

Less drug-focused and more of a classic mobster story, The Sopranos is an absolute classic and a must-watch for anyone wanting to dive into a crime drama. It’s one of (if not the) best shows of all time.

Watch it on Binge.

The only question that remains is: which one are you going to watch first?
