Cape Town – When it comes to the world of fantasy on TV, there are a lot of options.

From dragons to magic and fairies, so we decided to narrow it down to three options for your viewing pleasure.

We have Netflix's new version of The Witcher (which is a popular book and video game series), the long-running ensemble series, The Magicians and one more that you might have missed from Amazon Prime Video, Carnival Row starring Cara Delevingne and Orlando Bloom.

So, whether you're into streaming magic, fairies or some serious butt-kicking action there'll be something for you in this concise list, which features shows on Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Showmax.

HERE ARE 3 DARK FANTASY SHOWS FOR YOU TO DIVE INTO TONIGHT!

The Witcher

Netflix

Geralt of Rivia - played by self-professed gamer Henry Cavill – is a mutated monster-hunter for hire, who journeys toward his destiny in a turbulent world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.


The Magicians

Showmax 

Quentin Coldwater is a street magician who doesn't realise he's got real magic - the dark, powerful kind - at his fingertips until he finds himself at Brakebills College for Magical Pedagogy.


Carnival Row

Amazon Prime Video

Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne star in this engaging epic, that is set in a Victorian fantasy world filled with mythological immigrant creatures whose rich homelands were invaded by the empires of man.
