Got a ‘Trese’-shaped hole in your heart? These 5 shows will fill it up

By SAAB LARIOSA Published Jun 16, 2021 8:17 pm

So you’ve finished Trese and feeling post-series sadness. Don't worry, it happens to the best of us whenever we finish a great series— especially one that holds so many references to our culture. Though Trese is undoubtedly a one-of-a-kind spectacle, it wouldn't hurt to support other offerings with similar themes.

Check out these picks to soothe that Trese-shaped hole in your heart.

Trese After Dark

Of course, a bonafide Trese watch wouldn’t be complete without following it up with its post-show accompaniment.

Hosted by Atom Araullo and Yvette Tan, Trese After Dark sees the show's Netflix team—creator Budjette Tan, illustrator Kajo Balidissimo, and Liza Soberano—in a sit-down discussion talking about the show's folklore roots and how it show came about in the first place.

 

Castlevania

Aside from having a similar animation style, this dark tale will take you deep into the world of the vampires and mortals of Wallachia, similar to how Trese weaves together the world of folklore and reality. The show also now has four seasons on Netflix to boot— so you'll have plenty of material to binge-watch away.

 Love Death and Robots

Can’t commit to a series with so much lore just yet? Try your hand at Love, Death + Robots, which features digestible Black Mirror-esque episodes focusing on post-apocalyptic, mythical, or futuristic themes. You can start the series from any episode, as it's ideal for quick, casual watchers.

Girl From Nowhere

Nope, it's not just the bangs that Alexandra Trese and Nanno have in common. Girl From Nowhere is a dark Thai series that follows a schoolgirl (literally) from hell, and though it's not as fantastical as TreseGirl From Nowhere can seriously gives viewers that dark series fix.

Marvel's Jessica Jones 

Itching for more badass female detectives taking down the bad guys? Marvel's Jessica Jones will have you glued to your seat—and annoyed at Marvel for canceling the show on its third season.
