There's something strangely enchanting about seeing a historical period reconstructed before your eyes, with small period details, elaborate costumes, and iconic locations brought to life on screen.

Now that the second season of The Gilded Age is over, fans of historical shows are left to their own devices, hungry for similar shows.

Here are 10 of the best historical dramas to binge on right now:

While the similarities between shows like Bridgerton, The Crown, Downton Abbey and The Gilded Age are certainly striking, given the similar subject matter and roster of main characters, we implore you to check out other shows on this list as well.

After all, the rich and powerful were not the only ones who lived in the past, and historical shows that only follow the obscenely wealthy aristocrats tend to get boring pretty quickly.

Fortunately, the last decade or so has seen the emergence of a number of interesting period shows that follow the lives of ordinary people, with the great The Underground Railway and Call the Midwife being the most prominent examples.

Don't be afraid to experiment with your historical shows, after all, you can always rewatch the first two seasons of The Gilded Age again in anticipation for the third one, right?

Here's the list of all the shows mentioned here: Downton Abbey (2010), Bridgerton (2020), The Underground Railroad (2021), Outlander ( 2014), The Crown (2016), The Great (2020), Belgravia (2020), Call the Midwife (2012), Sanditon (2019), Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story (2022).
