Grimms are a group of hunters who fight supernatural forces. They are charged with keeping the balance between humanity and the creatures of myth.
A reformed "Big Bad Wolf", now a reformed vegetarian, becomes his greatest helper and confidant.
Is Grimm good?
The creators have earlier made shows like Buffy and Angle. Grimm has some high standards to live up to, and it does so remarkably well.
This Show is a kind of modern take on the Grimm`s fairytales. Grimm is especially worth watching if you like modern fantasy and police shows.
Why is Grimm recommended?
Grimm is also a serious and exiting supernatural show. One of the supernatural creatures called Wesen is very similar to werewolves, but werewolves are not exactly the main focus of the show.
Grimm is more of a supernatural police detective show than Bitten. It also has a more episodic structure, at least in the first seasons. But both shows probably have a big overlap in their audience.
If you like Bitten, then you Grimm is a good show to check out next.

Is Lost Girl good?
This is a really cool series if you are into this kind of stuff.
Absolutely worth watching.
Why is Lost Girl recommended?
Lost Girl is another exciting and suspenseful supernatural show.
The main character is a succubus and not a werewolf, but there are werewolves and other supernatural beings in the show.
Both Lost Girl and Bitten have a female main character and are set in modern times.
One of the main differences is that Lost Girl has more of a private investigator theme to it.
Mitchell, George, and Annie are in there twenties and shares an apartment in Bristol England. However, they are not an ordinary group of twenty-something. They are a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost.
Is Being Human good?
This show has some inconsistencies. Some of the rules about the supernatural changes depending on the plot. But it's still an amazing show.
Absolutely worth watching.
Why is Being Human recommended?
Being Human is another suspenseful supernatural show with lots of twists and turns. It is not as serious as Bitten, but it is also not fully on the humoristic side.
One of the main characters is a werewolf, but there are other supernatural beings that have just as much focus on the show.
Both shows are set in modern times and most of their audience probably overlaps each other.

Hemlock Grove and Bitten are both exciting and suspenseful supernatural shows with lots of twists and turns.

People working for R.A.C. are known as reclamation agents or more commonly Killjoys. Killjoys only follow one law, and that is "The Warrant is all". Warrants are official documents issued by the R.A.C. which authorize Killjoys to conduct missions.
The whole system is verging on revolutionary war against The Company and the trio's own bloody pasts is starting to catch up with them. In this chaos, the three Killjoys struggle daily to maintain their R.A.C neutrality.
Is Killjoys good?
Killjoys is an exiting space western kind of show. Character development can sometimes take second place to world-building. Personally I would prefer more focus on character development, but the story is stellar.
Initially, it reminded me a little of Firefly, only not as good. But even if it is not as good as Firefly it is still a must-see show for science-fiction fans.
Why is Killjoys recommended?
Killjoys is a science-fiction show. It does not really have many direct similarities to Bitten, but its a very good show and it have a slightly similar feel to it.
If you like Bitten and science-fiction shows then you will probably also like Killjoys.

But as if that was not enough, there are also werewolf hunters out there.
Is Teen Wolf good?
I like it. I think it is better than similar shows like Vampires Diary. If you like other teen paranormal shows then you will most likely like this one too.
Why is Teen Wolf recommended?
Teen Wolf is also about werewolves. The main difference is that it has a younger highschool age cast. But if you don't mind teen shows and like Bitten, then Teen Wolf is a good show.
The Original is a spin-off where we follow the original vampire family from The Vampire Diaries.
They are known as the first vampires and the ancestor of all existing vampires.
Is The Originals good?
I find this spin-off to actually be better than the original series. The reason for this is probably that it is not as teen-focused as the Vampire Diary.
Why is The Originals recommended?
The Originals and Bitten are both tense and exiting supernatural shows. The Originals also has werewolves, but it has a bigger focus on vampires.

True Blood is loosely based on the book series Southern Vampire Mysteries.
Is True Blood good?
True Bloodis an excellent TV show.
The story separates itself from the books after the first season, but that's OK. You should watch this show.

But his true purpose more sinister. He is seeking revenge on the secret organization who ruined his life centuries ago.

Dracula (2013) is a fantastic show that ended too soon.
I don't understand why it only got one season. It had a great story with some excellent actors.

Bitten is an excellent book, and most of the other books in the Otherworlds series are also great. It has interesting characters and a fast-paced plot.
Bitten is a pleasure to read.
Why is Otherworld recommended?
This is the original source of the movie. The book version is much better, and there are plenty of other books in the series.
But the series does not have just one main character, it switches between different main characters in different books.
Faythe Sanders is a Texas grad student and a shape-shifting werecat.
After she is attacked by a stray she is ordered home by the pack alpha, her father.
Female werecats are rare, and two others have gone missing. So it's understandable that her father is worried.

The Shifters are ok paranormal books. Not the best, but still far from the worst. Give them a try, they are worth checking out.

The main character in both Stray and Bitten are female shapeshifters and females are rare in both stories.
