Starring Pierce Brosnan, AMC’s The Son tells the story of a man named Eli McCullough. He was kidnapped by the Comanches when he was thirteen and raised by them. Now, in old age, he runs a successful oil business and has to worry about choosing his successor. The series takes place in two timelines. One is set in 1915 when old Eli is struggling to maintain his empire. The second part takes place in 1849, when young Eli lives with the Comanches. Through the contrasting times, the series underscores the allure of the Old West while focusing on important themes and events. Like The English, it presents a somber tale set in volatile times.

While Reservation Dogs doesn’t fall into the western drama category, it shares the heart and soul of The English. If the Native American aspect of Prime Video’s drama has piqued your interest, then Reservation Dogs is sure to be an entertaining film. The film tells the story of a group of teenagers who want to escape their life on the reservation. Despite being a comedy, the series touches on issues such as mental health and suicide, as well as the complex dynamics within one’s family and community.

4. Godless (2017)

One of the things that sets The English apart from other westerns is that it uses a woman as the protagonist. The focus here is on Cornelia’s quest and her story rather than the story, where women typically serve the secondary purpose of romantic perspective. If you want to see a similar series in this genre that focuses on strong female characters, then Godless is the series for you. It tells the story of a man who runs away from his mentor after stealing all the loot from a robbery and ends up in a town populated mostly by women because most of the men died in a mining accident. Now at the mercy of the townsfolk, the man’s story intertwines with that of two other women.

This series is a prequel to The CW’s Walker and shares some plot points with The English. Similar to the Prime Video series, it is set in the late 1800s and follows the story of a woman who seeks avenge for the death of a loved one. For Cornelia it was the death of her son, but for Abby Walker it is the murder of her husband that turns her life upside down. Both women meet a man who helps them on their way and builds a close bond with them. All of these similarities make Walker: Independence the perfect series to watch after The English.

Starring Timothy Olyphant and Ian McShane, Deadwood follows the story of the residents of the town of the same name.

Many of the series‘ characters are based on real people and paint a harrowing picture of the old west, where lawlessness rules the land. Mixing reality with fiction, she delivers a gripping story that won’t let you go.

1. Dark Winds (2022- )

Based on Tony Hillerman’s book of the same name, Dark Winds is set on the Navajo Reservation, where a robbery case leads to the murder of a young girl and her grandmother. As cops Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee investigate the cases, they uncover some disturbing things that threaten to upset the balance of their community. The mystery runs through the episodes, and seemingly irrelevant details make sense by the end of the season. We see something similar in The English, where minimal dialogue is used to add substance to the plot. Similar to the Prime Video show, Native American identities are an important part of Dark Winds, giving the audience a deeper look into their customs and beliefs and how it all plays a part in solving the case.
