The Walking Dead (TV Series by AMC)
“The Walking Dead” is one of the most well-known post-apocalyptic TV series of all time. It follows a group of survivors as they navigate a world overrun by zombies. With its gritty realis, intense character development, and a mammoth 11-series worth of zombie content, “The Walking Dead” this is a must-watch for any fan of the genre.
28 Days Later (Film)
“28 Days Later” is a post-apocalyptic horror film that takes place in a world where a virus has turned most of the population into rage-infected zombies. The film follows a small group of survivors as they navigate their way through the infected world. With its intense atmosphere and gripping storyline, “28 Days Later” is a classic in the genre, and although is now over 20 years old, set a precedent in the zombie genre, that still to this day should be a regular watch on every apocalyptic fan’s watch list! Additionally, there’s a second film, “28 Weeks Later” that follows on from 28 day – perfect for watching back to back as a double film viewing!
Jericho (TV Series by CBS)
“Jericho” is a post-apocalyptic TV series that takes place in the aftermath of a nuclear attack on the United States. It’s personally one of my favourites, but when compared to others like the walking dead, is limited by only having two seasons, but that doesn’t mean to say that it doesn’t offer an awesome apocalyptic viewing experience. The show follows a small town in Kansas as they try to survive and rebuild in the wake of the attack. With its unique storyline and compelling characters, “Jericho” is a hidden gem that is definitely worth a watch.
The 100 (TV Series by The CW)
“The 100” is a post-apocalyptic TV series that takes place 97 years after a nuclear apocalypse has wiped out most of the human population. The show follows a group of survivors who are sent back to Earth to see if it is habitable. With its diverse cast of characters and complex plotlines, “The 100” is a show that is both thrilling and thought-provoking, with an extensive seven seasons to enjoy!

“The Handmaid’s Tale” is a dystopian TV series that takes place in a totalitarian society where women are treated as property of the state. The show follows the journey of one woman as she tries to survive and find her way back to her family. With its powerful performances and timely themes, “The Handmaid’s Tale” is a must-watch for any fan of post-apocalyptic fiction.
