Merlin: See TV Shows That Are Very Similar To Merlin and Should Be On Must-Watch List

1. Atlantis

In the modern day, Jason pilots a one-man submarine to investigate a deep sea disturbance that resulted in the disappearance of his father when he was a child. When he discovers the location, the submarine begins to fail and he is pulled into the sea. He wakes up on the shores of the kingdom of Atlantis, which is ruled by a traditionalist, King Minos and his power-hungry, manipulative wife, Queen Pasiphae. Jason has entered a world where legendary creatures guard dangerous curses and life is not fair, but it is still possible for heroes and justice to prevail. He is given shelter by a young intellectual who enjoys beautiful triangles named Pythagoras, and Hercules, a hopeless romantic who spends most of his time in taverns drinking and gambling. The three of them encounter monsters, gods and demigods, as they live and battle to do good and protect the innocent. 

2. Once Upon A Time

The Evil Queen interrupts the wedding of Snow White and Prince Charming to announce that she will cast a curse on everyone that will leave her with the only happy ending. As a result, the majority of the characters are transported to the town of Storybrooke, Maine, where most of them have been stripped of their original memories and identities as fairy tale characters. On her 28th birthday, Emma Swan, the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming, is brought to Storybrooke by her biological son Henry Mills in the hopes of breaking the curse cast by his adoptive mother, The Evil Queen.

3. Charmed (Reboot)

The story follows the lives of three sisters; Macy, Mel and Maggie, who after the death of their mother, discover they are The Charmed Ones, the most powerful trio of good witches, who are destined to protect innocent lives from demons and other dark forces. Each sister has an individual magical power, which is noticeably stronger when all three sisters work together as the 'Power Of The Three' to defeat their enemies. The sisters are aided by Harry Greenwood, an advisor who protects and guides witches. 

3. The Witcher

The film tells the story of The witcher Geralt, a mutated monster hunter who struggles to find his place in a world in which people often prove more wicked than beasts.

5. The Librarians

The series follows four people newly recruited by The Library; Colonel Eve Baird, of the NATO Anti-Terrorist Unit, destined to be the new Guardian; Ezekiel Jones, a consummate thief who can hack an NSA computer easily; Cassandra Cillian, a brilliant scientist and mathematician who possesses a trace of magic; and Jacob Stone, polymath, linguist, expert in architecture, art, art history, archaeology and world cultures of the past and present and more. The three received invitations from the Library at the same time as the current Librarian, Flynn Carsen, but for various reasons didn't show up for their interviews. 

6. Reign

The story is about Mary, the Queen of Scots, who travels to France for a convent, but she quickly returns to the castle and learns she is to marry Prince Francis to whom she has been engaged since they were six. Mary has to contend with changing politics and power plays, as well as her forced feelings for Francis and the romantic attentions of Francis's bastard half-brother, Bash. Francis's mother secretly tries to prevent the marriage because of a prediction that the marriage will lead to Francis's death.
