Our nation has plunged into a dark time, and we’re looking for Superheroes to save us, and something Spooky! to reflect our reality.
Lore, a podcast come to life (how modern!) on Amazon Prime, re-tells Aaron Mehnke’s creepiest stories. Black Mirror fore-tells our creepiest stories, analyzing our relationship with technology.
Ghosted is a comedy starring Craig Robinson and Adam Scott as two dudes investigating the paranormal; one is a believer and one isn’t, so it’s like The X-Files with less women and more humor. Supernatural, CW’s long-running drama, is about two dudes (one used to not believe) examining the fantastical.
Riverdale is a dark take on the Archie comics. Black Lightning is an adaptation of the DC comic, following a man who returns to fighting crime after a short retirement. Both shows air on the CW, your premiere comic-adaptation network, with ensemble casts.
Jessica Jones is back for season two this month on Netflix. Easily the streaming Network’s darkest adaptation, Jessica is a whiskey-swilling badass. The Tick is also recently embarking on season two, for Amazon Prime. This is the hero’s second adaptation, though both contain more humor than most super shows.
