Fermion dark matter interacting with the standard model through a Higgs portal suggests the presence of new mediator states at the electroweak scale. Collider searches for the mediators are a powerful tool to experimentally probe the Higgs-portal interactions, complementary to direct dark matter detection searches. In this talk, I discuss search strategies and the discovery range for the mediators at the LHC and future colliders in minimal renormalizable models.
