1. The Originals (television show) was first aired in 2013, this is a fantasy based drama serious which is quite popular among the viewers. You can watch it on Netflix streaming service.
Origin: The series follows the Story of Michealson's family, as the mother, who is a witch, casts the magic and turns her kids into vampires to save them from being killed by their father. The fourth-youngest child Klaus Michealson also had the blood of a werewolf and turned to be the most powerful creature, known as a Vampire-Werewolf Hybrid.

Story: The series begins with Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah returning to New Orleans; as the Hayley was pregnant with Klaus's child gives birth to a girl; so, the Klaus had to hide the baby to protect her from the rivals of a war going between vampires, werewolves and the witches. Klaus also had to leave the French Quarter in fear of his vengeful father Mikael, thus giving the charge to a Marcel. Mostly story spins around the supernatural being trying to win the territory from each other in New Orleans but still you won't miss romance either. The story started in another season named The Vampire Diaries but I personally think The Originals is quite better.


2. Prison Break (television show) was first aired in 2005, it's a top rated show, I would seriously recommend watching this story as it is full of evil genius turning points which surely will thrill the viewer. The first season of the series was nominated for several industry awards, including Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series Drama and won the People's Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama.

Story:The series spins around two brothers, starting with an evil genius guy named Micheal Scofield who gets himself into prison, in order to save his falsely accused brother from a death sentence due to some political issues.
