If you’re looking for tv shows and movies like Breaking Bad, this list can help. Wondering what to watch after Breaking Bad? Check out some of these similar shows and see what you think.

In terms of Breaking Bad recommendations for other TV shows, Better Call Saul should be at the top of any list. It’s a spinoff prequel to Breaking Bad, after all. And if you love character-driven television (and obviously you do, because you love Breaking Bad), consider watching shows like The Sopranos and The Wire. And while no show will ever be *exactly* like Breaking Bad, some are equally as intense and entertaining, including Mr. Robot, Narcos, and Bloodline.

Many of the movies like Breaking Bad have some parallels to the show. Flight of the Phoenix, for example, may seem familiar to Breaking Bad fans – a group of men crash land in the desert. As they build a plane to get out, fans of BrBa may notice similarities to Jesse and Walter getting stuck in the RV in the desert – and figuring out how to jumpstart it and get them out. Other movies which will immediately seem familiar include Scarface (of course), The Godfather, Pulp Fiction, and even Once Upon a Time in the West.
