Movies and TV shows with immortality / Where the main character is immortalby lukajocns | created - 22 Dec 2016 | updated - 11 months ago | Public
This list focuses on characters that have the gift (or curse) of everlasting life. Even though they might be possible to kill, they don't age and naturally wouldn't die.
Also if there's more parts to a movie, I'll just include one. (Except for The Man from Earth Holocene since not a lot of people realised that one came out)
The movie I recommend the most is The Man from Earth and the the show I recommend the most is Forever, otherwise it's in no particular order.
