These TV shows are exactly what you need, if The Crowded Room didn’t seem enough.

The Crowded Room is one of the best TV shows of this year, despite its mixed reviews from the critics. If you were hooked on the show, and it seemed like you wanted more, here’s a roundup of some great TV shows that are bound to give you the same chills and thrills.

Love & Death

This series revolves around Candy Montgomery, played by the talented Elizabeth Olsen, a housewife who dives into an affair with her neighbor. Things take a dark turn when the neighbor’s wife is found dead, and Candy becomes the prime suspect. Just like The Crowded Room, this story is based on real-life events, making it all the more intriguing.


Taking us back to the late '70s, Mindhunter follows two FBI agents unraveling the psychology of murder and getting uncomfortably close to real-life monsters. With a star-studded cast and directors like David Fincher and Asif Kapadia, this series is a rollercoaster ride of criminal science exploration and tense moments.


Meet Aden Young, portraying a character who's been imprisoned for the murder of his girlfriend in Rectify. The plot thickens when conflicting DNA evidence surfaces, and he’s released back into society. This series keeps you on the edge of your seat, questioning the innocence of the lead character, much like the doubts surrounding Holland's character in The Crowded Room.


Taking a dive into British criminal history, Des is based on the real-life serial killer Dennis Nilsen. When police uncover a horrifying find of decaying flesh and bones in North London, Dennis calmly admits to not just one or two, but “15 or 16” victims. Directed by Lewis Arnold, Des gives a chilling glimpse into the mind of a killer through a sequence of flashbacks.

The Serpent

The Serpent introduces us to Charles Sobhraj (Tahar Rahim), a French serial killer preying on tourists in Bangkok. Along with his girlfriend, Marie-Andrée Leclerc (Jenna Coleman), he steals identities and sells stolen diamonds to travel the world.

When a Dutch diplomat begins investigating the murders, the net starts tightening around Charles.
