List RulesVote up the films and series that give you Red Sparrow vibes.

Need something new to watch after finishing Red Sparrow? You're not alone! The inimitable Jennifer Lawrence played a convincing spy in 2018's Red Sparrow and fans of the film are clamoring for similar fare. Fortunately, there are hundreds of movies and TV series like Red Sparrow fans can enjoy now that the film has come and gone. Luc Besson's classic about a female assassin, Nikita, is an obvious choice for fans of Red Sparrow, but there are many others fans can choose from on the small screen.

Television series like Red Sparrow include some popular shows like Netflix's The Punisher, Den of Thieves, and La Femme Nikita, a show based on the film mentioned above. Lawrence's performance as a strong woman taking part in an international mole hunt may be hard to emulate, but the espionage series and movies listed here should hopefully make up for the feeling of emptiness that comes after watching an amazing movie like Red Sparrow and knowing it's over.
