A lot of shows drew to an end this year; ‘Reign’ was one of them. It followed the early years of Mary, Queen of Scots. Giving us a taste of the 16th century life, it took us all the way from France, and back to Scotland. The love for historical-fiction is increasing among the audiences and this show profited from that. It was criticized for its historical inaccuracies and too much drama for the sake of entertainment. However, in its four-season run, it managed to accumulate a significant amount of audience. Here’s the list of TV Shows similar to Reign that are our recommendations.
