7 Awesome TV Shows with Magic Powers

Are you into the fantasy genre and love watching TV series about magic and witches? Well, you’re in luck because Hollywood has created so many TV shows with magic powers that should be able to indulge your fantasy cravings.

The shows in this article are among the best you can find on TV or on any of the popular streaming services. Though the fantasy elements of witches and magic are common themes in all of these shows, the TV shows themselves don’t all belong to the fantasy genre. In fact, nearly all the series in this list belong to more popular TV genres like drama, thriller, and horror.

If you’re also a comedy fan, you can check out the best comedy series on Netflix UK.

Anyhoo, here are 10 awesome TV shows with magic powers for you to binge on:

  1. Game of Thrones

If you’re into medieval politics, gruesome wars, dragons, zombie armies, magic, sorcery, and lots of incest, then there is probably only one show that serves all these entertaining devices along with a compelling plot.

Now in its 9th season, Game of Thrones has entertained, confused, manipulated, and destroyed its audience with its never-ending twists and shocking reveals. The show is quite ruthless in its first few seasons with many of the audience’s favorite characters suffering quite traffic fates.

Its magical element is also quite fascinating and well-executed. Though magic isn’t a core component of the show’s story, it still plays an important role in the plot with a few important characters responsible for the use of this element.

In terms of quality, GOT certainly ranks first among the best TV shows with magic powers.

  1. Grimm

Nothing beats inserting all the amazing fairy tale creatures and monsters into an urban setting. When a show does that you bet it will be a hit. That is exactly what Grimm does and probably why it was one of the best shows until its unfortunate cancellation.

The show is basically about a cop who is a descendant of a long line of Grimms; men capable of seeing these magical creatures and also protect humanity from them.

The creatures, which are known as Wesen, look just human to the ordinary eye. The Grimm is, however, capable of seeing their true form, which makes him an important human contact for all the creatures.

Though this TV series focuses originally on the diverse creatures that exist in the fantasy world, there are magic elements that you’ll find quite fascinating too.

  1. Bewitched

If you want a TV series that will quench your thirst for magic and comedy, then this 70s show is the best option for you. The series follows a housewife, who is endowed with magical powers, and her relationship with her mortal husband.

This show, which ran for eight seasons, has been heralded as one of the best ever made. It has also birthed several spinoffs including a 2005 movie.

  1. Penny Dreadful

If your inclination is towards the horror genre then there are many shows that can satisfy your visual appetite. Not many of the shows incorporate magic and witches. One of the few that do is the terrifying series, Penny Dreadful.

This British-American TV series is a blend of drama and comedy. It does teeter more to the supernatural side but the magical aspect is still quite apparent.

It is a Gothic-themed show that is both scary and disturbing, making it one of the best in its genre.

  1. Once Upon a Time

Created by the amazing minds that brought the Lost series to the small screens, Once Upon a Time basically takes you on a journey to all of your favorite storybook locations including Camelot, Oz, Neverland, and Wonderland etc.

It follows the new trend of studios transforming original storybook/fairy tale concepts in live action. It is definitely one of the most entertaining TV shows that contain magical elements.

  1. The Magicians

Want to watch a TV show with magic powers? Why not go for one that is entirely about the concept of magic, and is of course called The Magicians.

This TV series can be caught on the Syfy network. It is basically the adult version of the highly acclaimed literary work, Harry Potter. If you want to see compelling characters and an amazing plot…with of course lots of magic, you should check out this show.

  1. The Shannana Chronicle

With Game of Thrones only having 10 episodes per season, it is simply not enough to satisfy your demand for incredible fantasy action with some magic. Well, this TV series should help fill any void left.

It centers around an Elf and a princess who are on a quest to save the world from a vengeful demon. Yeah, the plot is pretty much a cliché, but the show itself is quite enjoyable thanks to the performance of the brilliant casts.
