12 Best Post-Apocalypse Survival Shows To Stream Right Now
Despite the near-dystopian nature of COVID-19, the appetite for post-apocalyptic shows post-pandemic hasn’t receded one bit. The staggering success of the most recent one, The Last of Us, adds life to the argument that post-apocalyptic movies will always be here to stay. An internet fandom about end-of-the-world series wants you to stream these hot survival shows set in post-apocalyptic eras.
1. Falling Skies (2011)
Set six months after an alien invasion of Earth, Falling Skies, according to a member of the forum, offers a perfect delivery into the potential reality of a post-apocalyptic world. Corroborating his claims, a second person says they would choose Falling Skies before any other.
2. Station Eleven (2021)
Based on Emily St. John Mandel’s novel, Station Eleven tells an apocalyptic tale of a pandemic that wiped out half the world’s population. One viewer says Station Eleven was a delight to watch. A second agrees, describing it as “Really good. Great acting all around.”
3. The Last Man on Earth (2015)
Seeking a post-apocalyptic theme that adds humor to an immersive storyline, a movie lover thinks you’d find The Last Man on Earth unbelievably good. Reacting, someone else says the movie is fantastic and that although it ends with a cliffhanger, you’ll find it an enjoyable watch.
4. Colony (2016)
Someone asks if Colony was post-apocalyptic, arguing it was a post-alien invasion show. But the plot needed to rebuild society from scratch after it was severely defeated, and several viewers consider it one of the best dystopian movies they’ve seen.
5. Tribes of Europa (2021)
Several people say Tribe of Europa is a great show, primarily because it represented the warring nature of the human condition for control after an apocalypse. One person admits she hopes season two is renewed, and the show continues.
6. Fear the Walking Dead (2015)
A companion series of The Walking Dead is getting the rave of what post-apocalyptic should look like among movie lovers in this online community. The movie ushers viewers of The Walking Dead into the chaos and panic that preceded the zombie outbreak.
7. The Handmaid’s Tale (2017)
In a dystopian global estate and under the rule of a brutal theocratic regime, women were reduced to reproductive servitude as birth dwindled to a fault. A resistance must rise to confront the oppressive government to save the lives of enslaved women and stolen children.
8. Snowpiercer (2020)
A perpetually moving train carries the last remnant of humanity after an attempt to counteract global warming leads to a new ice age. A viewer says the idea of a constantly moving train reminds them of the sentient ships in The Reaper Trilogy. A second person thinks the show gives us a foray into potential social inequality and strife for survival in an apocalyptic world.
9. Dark (2017)
Dark is a great show, but a viewer of the show says, “Most of it did not occur after the apocalypse.” Another person replies, arguing that although the entirety of the show wasn’t all into the post-apocalyptic plotline, it’ll be criminal not to include it.
10. Jericho (2006)
In an increasingly volatile world drumming the beats of war, Jericho explicitly describes the aftermath of a nuclear war on the United States. The plotline follows residents of a Kansas town as they fight to rebuild their society in the face of internal conflicts and external threats. It’s a shame there were only two seasons.
11. The Last Ship (2014)
Following a deadly virus that wiped out most of the world’s population, some crew members of the U.S. Navy destroyer lucky to be offshore must find a cure and defeat a faction of the crew that seeks to exploit the situation. Many people who watched consider the movie a screen representation of the human thirst for control and power, even when saddled by existential threats.
12. Z Nation (2014)
If you seek a humorous take on a zombie apocalypse, Z Nation is for you. It’s a movie that seamlessly blends tragedy and comedy, where in one scene, you’ll be cackling with laughter and the next misty in the eyes.
