Today marks the anniversary of Gossip Girl, so it’s impossible not to reminisce on the endless binges you’ve had watching your favorite Manahttanites. But if you’re one of the many who feels like this cult favorite is irreplaceable, you’re not alone. It seems like hopeless to think that you’ll ever find as much love for a TV show again. Well, we’ve put together the definitive list of Netflix shows that you need to watch if you are a self proclaimed Gossip Girl addict. Trust us, if you love all things GG, you will be obsessed with these, too.
1. One Tree Hill
This show about classic teenage angst might not have the high-end fashion that GG does, but it has all the drama you’ll love. Plus, the fact that pretty much every single character is so attractive it hurts isn’t too bad either. This show just goes to prove that teenage drama exists everywhere, whether it’s on the streets of Manhattan or on the roads of a small town.
2. Grey’s Anatomy
This show might be lacking in fashion—you’ll pretty much only see scrubs—but it definitely delivers when it comes to drama. From relationship ups and downs, to endless twists and turns, you will become addicted.
3. The Vampire Diaries
Ok, this one definitely has some different elements, like the fact that it includes werewolves, witches and vampires, but trust us, it will not disappoint. The eye candy in this show is so good, you might fall for Damon Salvatore’s smirk over Chuck Bass’s smolder. Regardless, the love triangle in this series will get you hooked.
4. The Carrie Diaries
The fashion overload in this pre-Sex and the City series will satisfy any couture craving you have. Plus, it takes place in Manhattan and involves all the trials and tribulations that come with being a teenager—and as you know, there are a lot.
5. The O.C.
There is no shortage of fashion or enviable lifestyles in this drama. It might take place on the sands of Cali instead of the streets of NYC, but you’ll love watching the luxurious lifestyles and teenage drama ensue. You’ll definitely be experiencing the fashion envy you felt while watching GG.
Lives of the rich and famous? Check. Taking place in the elite Hamptons area, this show will have you bingeing non-stop. Between a crazy, twisted plot, and more eye candy than you thought possible, this is a great show for any GG lover.
7. Pretty Little Liars
The similarities between PLL and GG are undeniable. Not only do you have a mystery antagonist—A and Gossip Girl would probably be great friends—but you also have plenty of high fashion to keep you occupied. The non-stop suspense in this series will have you stuck to your screen for days on end.
This show is the epitome of drama, and it’s basically the west coast version of GG. Not only is every single person drop dead gorgeous, but they also live lavish lifestyles that will have you endlessly daydreaming. The friend drama that you loved on GG is a huge part of this show, and just like GG, you’ll be pining after all the clothes that your ramen-three-times-a-week budget doesn’t have the funds for.
