Author JK Rowling introduced us to the mystical world of magic. Seeing Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley gallivant around Hogwarts, was like a dream for fiction lovers. The much-loved movie series may have ended in 2011, but taking inspiration from it, many new shows popped up that were equally delightful and thrilling to watch. So, here’s a list of the best supernatural shows that are sure to charm their way into your hearts, and make you take a trip to the magic lane.

The Umbrella Academy
8.4OTTplay Rating
All things special happen by chance. Symbolising this line to its very essence, Umbrella Academy has a unique plot. Born on the same day in 1989 and adopted by billionaire industrialist Sir Reginald Hargreeves, it narrates the story of seven individuals, each of them having a distinct power – from mind control to time rewind, from spot-on knifing to super-strength. Sir Reginald forms the Umbrella Academy to train them and make them superheroes. However, the dysfunctionality gets to them, and breaks the family apart to be united years later at their father’s funeral and stop an impending doom.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
7OTTplay Rating
Truly one-of-a-kind, the show is a delight to the eyes and intriguing to the mind. A fancy concoction of teen drama and supernatural horror, it follows the titular character of Sabrina Spellman, half-mortal and half-witch, who must choose between the human and witch world on her 16th birthday, all the while battling against hidden dangers and sorting out her personal life. The sufficient comic elements provide a respite from the dark feels of the show, maintaining a likeable balance.
7.1OTTplay Rating
Spin-off of popular shows The Originals and The Vampire Diaries, the series originally aired in 2018 and is currently in its third season. It revolves around the pupils of Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted, namely werewolves, witches and vampires, as they battle against an ancient evil to prevent it from rising. In spite of being about monsters and supernaturals, the show is a whole package as it combines romance and comedy in its plotline, making it entertaining to watch.
The Magicians
The show sets its premise in Brakebills, a university for those gifted with powers and special abilities. However, things take an ugly turn when a group of students realise the stories they read in their childhood are much closer to reality and far more dangerous to humanity.
Fate: The Winx Saga
7.2OTTplay Rating
Inspired by Nickelodeon’s animated show The Winx Club, the 2021 series takes place in Alfea, a legendary fairy school in an undisclosed magical location. It follows the journey of a young mysterious fairy, Bloom as she enrols in the school, and forms a fairy gang of her own. With the rise of ancient creatures called the Burned Ones, how the students hold their ground, while navigating through love and school rivalries, is what makes the show worth bingeing.
