10 Best TV Shows Like Netflix’s The Pentaverate

Part of what makes The Pentaverate such a pleasurable series to watch is its ability to take the conspiracy thriller genre and add a comedic take. Though The Afterparty isn’t a thriller, per se, it still manages to combine two unlikely genres: mystery and comedy.

In particular, it focuses on a group of friends who gather for a high school reunion, only for one of them to end up dead at the bottom of a cliff. The mystery draws the viewer in, while the comedy serves to lighten what could otherwise be a very dreary story.

Killing Eve (2018 – 2022)

Streaming On Hulu

There have been many great thriller series in the history of television, and it’s clear that The Pentaverate works to subvert some of the expectations and conventions of the genre. In some ways, Killing Eve does the same, for while its antiheroine, Villanelle, is a cunning assassin, there’s no doubt that she is also very compelling and, at times, even sympathetic.

What’s more, her undeniable bond with Sandra Oh’s Eve makes for compelling viewing, and the series is a slick and tautly-woven story from beginning to end.

Inside Job (2021 – )

Streaming On Netflix

The Pentaverate is but the most recent example of a series that adds a comedic spin to the idea of a vast, world-spanning conspiracy.

Inside Job, the animated series from Netflix, does something similar, focusing as it does on several characters who work at the organization known as Cognito, Inc., which works to both control the world and keep such efforts secret. It has a surrealist approach to its comedy that will help it to appeal to fans of The Pentaverate’s irreverent sense of humor.

Q-Force (2021)

Streaming On Netflix

The Pentaverate takes its place among the many strong comedies offered by Netflix. It is joined in that regard by Q-Force, which focuses on an elite group of spies who are also members of the LGBTQ+ community.

The series’ brilliance lies in its ability to take the stereotypes that have long bedeviled LGBTQ+ representation and to turn them on their heads. What’s more, it also ends up becoming a series that is both very funny and, in its own strange way, touching as well.

Only Murders In The Building (2021 – )

Streaming On Hulu

Hulu has been responsible for creating a number of fascinating, and often hilarious, series. Of these, Only Murders in the Building, starring Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez, is arguably the best. Focusing on a trio of neighbors who set out to solve a murder mystery – by, among other things, starting a podcast – it is an ideal fit for fans of The Pentaverate.

Like the Netflix series, it manages to combine entertaining genres into a very funny whole. And, what’s more, the performances from its central three cast members are some of the best in television.

Space Force (2020 – 2022)

Streaming On Netflix

There’s no denying that a major part of the appeal of The Pentaverate is the performance from Mike Myers. As he always does, he manages to capture several distinct personalities. Space Force, the Netflix comedy focusing on the group of people charged with creating this new branch of the armed forces, similarly relies on a powerful performance, in this case from Steve Carell.

As he has done so often in the past, he manages to create, in Mark R. Naird, someone hopelessly inept who nevertheless manages to be fun to watch and spend time with.

Truth Seekers (2020)

Streaming On Prime Video

The comedy collaboration between Nick Frost and Simon Pegg has been tremendously successful, as can be seen from their many movies together. Though their series Truth Seekers only lasted one season, it still managed to showcase their formidable talents.

Frost is the major player in the series, playing an employee of a telecommunications company who also investigates the paranormal. With its silliness and its great performances, it is designed to appeal to those who enjoy similar aspects in The Pentaverate.

What We Do In  The Shadows (2019 – )

Streaming On Hulu

Though many of the best series about vampires lean into either the dramatic or the romantic, What We Do in the Shadows is different. With its absurdist comedy bent, it is very much in the same sort of comedic vein as The Pentaverate.

Just as importantly, it also has a dynamic cast, each of whom brings out the full complexity of their vampiric (and human) characters. It uses the mockumentary format to poke fun of, and to an extent subvert, the expectations many viewers have of the vampire genre.

Our Flag Means Death (2022 – )

Streaming On HBO Max

Though it is still relatively new to the streaming game, HBO Max has still managed to produce several great shows. One of these is Our Flag Means Death, which focuses on the unusual relationship that emerges between Stede Bonnet, a gentleman-turned pirate, and Blackbeard, one of the most notorious pirates.

It has a sly yet absurdist sense of humor, and it’s the latter that will make it appealing to fans of The Pentaverate. What’s more, the series genuinely seems to enjoy its characters, and it wants the audience to like them as well.

The Flight Attendant (2020 -)

Streaming On HBO Max

The Pentaverate excels at making the most out of its conspiracy-heavy premise. A similar dynamic is at work with Flight Attendant which, as its title suggests, focuses on flight attendant Cassie as she finds herself drawn into a dreadful murder (in the first season) and a larger conspiracy (in the second).

While it leans heavily into its thriller credentials, the series isn’t afraid to draw laughs out of the audience as well, thanks in large part to the dynamic (and surprisingly heartfelt) performance by Kaley Cuoco.
