Orange Is the New Black fans are 8X more likely to love Weeds

Before Orange Is the New Black became one of the dominant shows of the Netflix era of TV, creator Jenji Kohan was making a name for herself with Weeds. The Showtime original drama was among the first big hits in the second "Golden Age of Television" ushered in by The Sopranos in 1999, and follows a widowed mother who turns to selling pot in order to support her two children — an interesting (but considerably less dark) predecessor to Breaking Bad. If you're looking for the kind of darkly quirky writing that defines Orange Is the New Black, there's a very good chance (eight to one, in fact!) that you'll get hooked on Weeds.

Orange Is the New Black fans are 7X more likely to love Sons of Anarchy

No one wants to go to prison, but that doesn't mean that a lot of us aren't very curious about what it's like "on the inside." Orange Is the New Black is thrilling because it gives us access to an isolated, closed-off world that is both terrifying and tittilating — similarly, Sons of Anarchy gives viewers a look at life inside a violent and dangerous biker gang. With both well-written interpersonal drama and exciting action holding the series together, Sons of Anarchy will satisfy your need for great stories about people in dangerous situations. And it also features plenty of prison drama, if that's what drew you to OITNB in the first place.

Orange Is the New Black fans are 6X more likely to love Bates Motel

If it's the dark and violent themes of Orange Is the New Black that attracts you to the show, Bates Motel has more of what you're looking for. A prequel to the events depicted in the classic Alfred Hitchcock thriller Psycho, Bates Motel follows Norman Bates and his mother Norma, who purchase a motel in the fictional town of White Pine Bay, Oregon, after the death of Norman's father. A drama that is creepy without sacrificing character depth or story, Bates Motel is perfect for OITNB fans who appreciate a good psychological thriller.

Orange Is the New Black fans are 7X more likely to love Dexter

Another amazing television series centered around crime and punishment, Dexter stars Michael C. Hall as Dexter Morgan, a forensic specialist with the Miami Police Department by day who hunts and kills serial killers by night. Recognizing his own sociopathic tendencies, Dexter trains himself to focus his violent urges on other serial killers rather than on innocent people, all while avoiding detection by the very police department he works for. If you love OITNB because you love stories about justice (or the lack thereof), you'll love Dexter's very original and often gruesome take on the subject.
