13 series similar to Cursed (2020) that we recommend if you like Netflix's fantastic adventure

13 series similar to Cursed (2020) that we recommend if you like Netflix's fantastic adventure.

Cursed (2020) is a new variation on the legend of King Arthur, but this proposal based on a comic by Frank Miller follows Nimue, the mythical Lady of the Lake, instead of the knights of the round table, but it is not the only series that deals with that mythology, and it may be that when you have finished the first season on Netflix. 

While season 2 arrives, one of these adventure series with similar mystical elements will help you in waiting.

The Adventures of Sir Lancelot (1956-1957)

To enjoy a series with characters from the world of Camelot, nothing like starting with the first British series shot in full color. 

Produced by Sapphire Films and broadcast on the ITV channel these adventures of Knight Lancelot starred William Russell, the most celebrated Knight of the Round Table. 

The Legend of The Brave Prince (1991-1992)

Forgotten adaptation of the mythical strip on the Arthurian legend with an adequate translation of its characters during 65 episodes. 

The elements of adventure, humor, romance, were suitable for the whole family but without losing interest for adults. 

The biggest change from the comics was Merlin who became popular for his mix of wisdom and humor. Perhaps what is most lacking is a more retro translation of Hal Foster's drawing style, but they achieved a superior product to the contemporary 'The Adventures of King Arthur' (1992–).

Xena the Warrior Princess (Xena: Warrior Princess 1995-2001)

You don't have to watch many chapters of Cursed (2020) to see everything he shares about the essence of 'Xena: Warrior Princess', the only thing missing from someone with the charisma of Lucy Lawless, who has become an icon for a good reason. 

With its cheap appearance and humorous subtlety, Xena's quest to atone for her sins has influenced many fantasy series that were made afterward. Great locations, great character dynamics, and memorable melee sequences made it a cult classic.

Merlin (1998)

The second half of the 90s experienced a great explosion of 'Great Stories', fantasy and science fiction miniseries full of CGI effects that he already sings today, film actors who sneaked onto television and a limitation of chapters that gave him more entity and strength to budgets. 

One of the best was 'Merlin' who had two aces up his sleeve to give personality to the magician and adviser to Arturo and his nemesis: Sam Neil and Miranda Richardson.

The mists of Avalon (The Mists of Avalon, 2001)

Adaptation of Marion Zimmer Bradley's bestselling book on the history of the women behind King Arthur including her mother, Igraine, her half-sister, Morgana, her aunt Viviane, the lady of the lake, and his wife, Gwenwyfar. 

This would be the clearest precedent for ' Damn ' since it is the first time that Nimue is at least a co-star ahead of Camelot's men.

Merlin (2008)

Another series based on the magician, this time connecting more with the partially youthful tone of Cursed (2020), the BBC offered another version of the Arthurian legend, beginning with the exile of magic in Camelot, forcing Merlin (Colin Morgan) to hide their abilities for fear of persecution. 

Anthony Head plays the villain Uther and Arthur (Bradley James) falls in love with Geneva (Angel Coulby) in a love story set against a fantastic background. A version that tried to be Camelot's 'Smallville'.

Stargate SG-1 (1997-2007)

Seasons 9 and 10 of this famous science fiction series changed their usual Egyptian, Greek or Nordic spaces, by Arthurian legend, the team finds Avalon, Mitchell draws the sword from the stone, they meet Morgana le Fay and search for Merlin and the weapon that may be his only hope against his enemies, besides the Holy Grail.

Game of Thrones (Game of Thrones, 2010-2019)

'Game of Thrones' is key in all the epic fantasy series that have come after. Few remain without knowing the Seven Kingdoms, the Stark and Lannister houses, dragons, White Walkers and countless characters that have left their mark between battles, blood and political entanglements. 

Among them, many women who take charge of their destiny and that of their people, something that opens the doors to Cursed (2020) in another way, not only imitating their imaginary like so many others.

Camelot (2011)

Another modern adaptation of Arthurian tales that maintains some of the main parts of the story and adjusts details to its own language. 

It is not the most notable of the set, but surely the legion of Eva Green fans do not want to miss it. He was accompanied by none other than Jamie Bower and Joseph Fiennes to narrate the growth from boy to king-leader of united Britain.

The Last Kingdom (2015-)

One of the most famous medieval setting series of recent times, currently broadcast on Netflix, adapts the Bernard Cornwall book collection of the same name, which takes place in Anglo-Saxon England invaded by Vikings, and tells the story of Uhtred, from being raised by invaders from when he was a child to adulthood. 

Away from the fantasy of others on the list, she is highly valued for her vision of the birth of the United Kingdom.

Letter to the King (The Letter for the King, 2019-)

A medieval fantasy series focused on a more prepubertal age, a coming of age about Tiuri (Amir Wilson), an aspiring knight with the ability to hear invisible voices, who is commissioned to deliver an important letter and ring to King Favian. 

Throughout his journey, he is accompanied by loyal Lavinia (Ruby Ashbourne Serkis) and even her real-life father, Andy Serkis, who makes a notable appearance as the Mayor of Mistrinaut. 

Accustomed to the cruelty of JDT it is smooth, but it is better than the case that has been done to him.

The Witcher (2019-)

Based on Andrzej Sapkowski's book series that spawned a massive gaming franchise, 'The Witcher' focuses on monster hunter Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill), powerful sorceress Yennefer (Anya Chalotra), and lost girl Ciri ( Freya Allan ) over the course of three different time frames that get a little confusing, until you realize that in the end what matters are the sword and magic fights and the monsters of the week.

Arthdal ​​Chronicles (2019-)

Another hidden gem from Netflix, an ambitious South Korean television series set in a mythical land, with people seeking power, leading to comparisons to JDT from day one, and making it seem like no It lived up to expectations. 

But if you like Cursed (2020) this epic fantasy series has all the necessary ingredients to satisfy you.
