We all love horror movies and TV shows, but something that makes us perk right up is monster movies and series, especially if those monsters are werewolves. There have been some horrible-looking werewolves in movies, while there have also been some that are downright spooky. The world of werewolves started catching up with TV series after ‘Teen Wolf‘ came out in 2011, and as typical as the name may seem, it was pretty good. But it’s still not a trend yet to make werewolves the primary characters of any movie or series; only a few manage to do that, while others keep them as side roles alongside vampires or other monsters. For those who love werewolf shows, Netflix has quite a collection of stories to keep you hooked.
8. The Order (2019-2020)
A college student decides to pledge a secret order, which takes him to a secret hidden world he was never aware of, a world where a war is already going on between werewolves and people who are experts in the field of black magic. The show will initially make you roll your eyes because of how typical everything is. But slowly, all of it just gets crazier and bizarre, but that’s when it gets better, and the plot starts to go deeper. Even the actors do a good job of portraying their characters. You can watch the series here.
7. V Wars (2019)
In the thrilling series ‘V Wars,’ based on the Jonathan Maberry comics, a mysterious virus unleashes a global epidemic, pitting humans against vampires.

6. Legacies (2018-2022)
After ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘The Originals’ ended, the CW expanded the TWD universe with another spin-off series – ‘Legacies.’ ‘Legacies’ follows the next generation of vampires, werewolves, hybrids, and witches as they all come together to study the mystic arts at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted in Mystic Falls. At the center of the series is Hope Mikaelson, daughter of Original vampire Klaus and werewolf Hayley.

5. Castlevania (2017 – 2021)
This is one of the best anime horror series out there. It’s funny, dark, witty, moving, and oh-so-totally gripping. The story of ‘Castlevania’ is set in medieval Europe and follows the darkly inviting and exciting adventures of formerly disgraced hunter Trevor Belmont as he and his fellow hunters take down evil monsters, slowly closing in to catch and stop Count Dracula and his legion of blood-thirsty vampires from destroying all of mankind. This series is beautifully animated and features the voices of Richard Armitage and Theo James, among others. If you’re someone who likes mysticism and creatures of the dark like werewolves and vampires, then you cannot miss ‘Castlevania.’ You can check out the show here.
4. Supernatural (2005-2020)
As the name suggests, ‘Supernatural’ follows brothers Sam and Dean Winchester, who follow in their father’s footsteps and take on the heavy responsibility of keeping the world free from demons, monsters, ghosts, and supernatural beings of all kinds. While the series starts slow, with Sam and Dean saving innocent people from vengeful spirits and demons, it soon delves into the depths of mythology, brings in a dynamic of heaven and hell, and even introduces God and his angels. Nevertheless, Supernatural introduces two different kinds of werewolves: the regular kind, who transform under a full moon and have no control over their minds, as well as Pureblood Werewolves, who get to have more control over their human selves. You can watch ‘Supernatural’ here.
