The show has not only provided a unique narrative to its audiences but done so through an array of impressive performances, namely from the two heads, Ali Wong and Steven Yeun. But, sadly, all things must come to an end, and the limited series has now dropped the curtain.
With the curtain coming down, we’re bringing you five shows which will fill the void of Beef. they may not have the exact same storylines, but these series are just as thrilling and enthralling and will guarantee you an enjoyable watching experience.
There are entries from Keri Russell, a TV classic from Bryan Cranston and one of the biggest shows of the century from Ricky Gervais. However, it’s not all doom and gloom, as Ali Wong makes a more usual and humours appearance too.

4. Inventing Anna (2022)
The show Inventing Anna is based on the true story of German Heiress Anna Delvey (Julia Garner). She fools the majority of New York socialites with her wicked clever intellect. Anna manages to outwit some of the most powerful entities into believing she was sitting on a pile of generational wealth. The plot revolves around star journalist Jessica Pressler’s narrative of the incident, which is played by Anna Chlumsky as Vivian Kent.
Shonda Rhimes’ limited series is certainly a fantastic piece making a societal statement on a multiplicity of layers rather than merely providing us with the lives and trials of a con artist. Watch it on Netflix here.
3. Breaking Bad (2008)
Who exactly is Walter White? I don’t think any film or television fan needs an explanation. Breaking Bad is an epic crime drama series recognised for its dark comedy and neo-western undertone. As a character, a once chemistry teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston) decides to start producing meth in order to pay off his medical debt and support his family.
However, the story takes a turn when he teams up with one of his former students, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). The duo get riled up in what becomes an empire. Watch Breaking Bad on Netflix here.
2. After Life (2019)
Created by a real creative genius, After Life is yet another genius starring Ricky Gervais. The comedy-drama revolves around a newspaper writer, Tony Johnson, whose life takes 360 when his wife dies. It’s a story of how one deals with the grief of losing close ones, in this case, his wife Lisa (Kerry Godliman). Set in the fictional town of Tambury, this series is a must-watch.

1. Ali Wong: Hard Knock Wife (2018)
After two years since comedian-actress gave birth to her child, a very pregnant Ali Wong re-enters the arena in her second original stand-up. This comedy special was filmed in Toronto’s Winter Garden Theatre. She talks of motherhood, managing relationships, and how pregnancy is not half as charming as they advertise it to be. If you loved her unabashed humour in Beef, this is just what you need to watch after.
