When "The X-Files" miniseries came to a close, fans were possibly seconds away from learning the truth before the finale ended on a cliffhanger. Instead of sitting around trying to figure out what happened to Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson), we've rounded up options similar to the hit sci-fi show. Below are some shows that venture into the paranormal that are available for binge watching.
"Sleepy Hollow" (2013)
Revolutionary War soldier Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) wakes up in modern times to join forces with a local police lieutenant Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) to take on ancient evils. Both are witnesses to protect the world from the end of days and they use American history to solve crimes and stop demons. Abbie and Ichabod have a very close relationship like Mulder and Scully on "The X-Files." Although they're relationship is purely platonic, their bond is one of the strongest parts of the show. "Sleepy Hollow" is available on Hulu.
Just as the title suggests, "Supernatural" involves things like ghosts, monsters, demons and even the Devil himself. Two brothers, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) follow in their father's footsteps of hunting down strange and evil creatures. The show started in 2005 and is now up to Season 11 on the CW. The first 10 seasons are available on Netflix.
"The Twilight Zone" (1959)
"The Twilight Zone" was one of the shows that inspired "The X-Files." Each episode features a different story in science fiction or horror that includes aliens, a living doll, a creepy hitchhiker and much more. The Rod Serling show ran from 1959-1963 and Seasons 1, 2, 3, and 5 are available to stream on Netflix.
This series was very close to being a modern day version of "The X-Files." FBI agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) reluctantly is forced to work with a mad scientist, Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble) and his son Peter (Joshua Jackson) to investigate weird crimes that seem to be unexplainable. All five seasons of the show are available on Netflix.
"Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997)
Just as "The X-Files" did, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" used monster of the week episodes in addition to having an overarching story. Sarah Michelle Geller stars as Buffy, who is chosen to slay vampires and other monsters. While she struggles to live a normal life because of her fight against evil, she also has a little help from her friends, known as "The Scooby Gang" along the way. The full series is available on Netflix.
This show tells the story a forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance "Bones" Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) who try to solve cases based on human remains left behind. The two partners also go on to form a romantic relationship, which also sounds familiar to another TV couple. Bones is airing its 11th season on Fox, but the first 10 are available on Netflix.
