11 Historical Dramas to Binge-Watch Right Now

eed a new show to binge-watch? I've rounded up 11 fantastic historical dramas now streaming on Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu.

Historical dramas are my thing. I love the costumes, the scenery, the romance of a series set in a different time. If I could only watch one genre for the rest of my days, I would watch historical dramas.

This week I’m sharing some of my favorite historical dramas over at SheKnows. One of the great things about this list is that each title is currently available to stream on Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu, making them perfect for binge-watching.

Here are a few of my favorites:

♥ The 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice obviously made the list because I heart Mr. Darcy and all things Jane Austen.

♥ Much like the novel it’s based on, the BBC series North and South is under appreciated but an absolute must watch if you are a fan of the brooding male hero, which of course you are if you like historical dramas.

♥ Poldark is a relatively new series, and while the series can be a little slow at times, there are gorgeous costumes and scenery and one very broody hero, so you should really watch this.

♥ Rounding out the list is Downton Abbey, which probably doesn’t surprise you since I make no secret of my love for this show. Honestly, the first two seasons were the best, but the entire series is worth a watch because the period details are amazing. Also, I wrote a post about why you should watch it.

  1. For some reason I am just not that into the whole historical drama thing. A lot of our friends and family are though. But I am more into science fiction. And vampire stuff. And apocalyptic stories 🙂

  2. Terrific picks! This likely won’t come as a big surprise to anyone who knows me and my passion for the past, but I utterly adore historical dramas and try to catch as many as possible. In recent years one of my favourites has been Riper Street. The costuming isn’t always historically accurate by any means, but the plot is fully intoxicating and always leaves me wanting more!

  3. I don’t think I have ever seen a historical drama. Currently, my favorite series to binge-watch are Pretty Little Liars, The Walking Dead, and The Flash. Sadly, I’ve completed all of the above, so I’m on the hunt for something new!


  4. North & South… swoon. I only discovered that last year or so and oh man I love love loved it. I will have to check out Poldark!

  5. I love Historical dramas! They did make an older Poldark series in the 1970’s which is where my sister got her name from! I’ve yet to see the modern one!!x
    Hello, by the way, nice to meet you!x
