Mare of Easttown was one of the most talked-about shows to premiere this spring and it kept us on our toes until the very last episode. If you still can’t get over its ending, here are a few equally brilliant crime dramas to fill the Mare of Easttown-shaped hole in your heart.

True Detective

Another great HBO show that centers on detectives investigating mysterious murders, True Detective has been hailed as one of the best crime shows in recent memory—especially its first season starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.


If you’re looking for another show about a mysterious murder that tears a small community apart, Broadchurch is the best fit. The British crime drama stars David Tennant and Olivia Colman as detectives trying to solve a gruesome crime, and their incredible dynamic is one of the best things about this series.

Sharp Objects

The adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s hit novel, this miniseries stars Amy Adams as a troubled crime reporter, returning to her hometown to investigate the murders of two young girls. This series shares many traits with Mare of Easttown, including brilliant performances, a small-town vibe, and the focus on the dark, inner lives of teenagers and the struggles of motherhood.
