Pretty Little Liars
As asked earlier, what did you miss about the Gossip girl? If it is the mystery and romance, then Pretty Little Liars is a perfect choice for you. Just like the Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars centers around an anonymous stalker who’s always watching and knows all secrets and lies of the main characters.
The show is about a group of teens who lives in the small town of Rosewood.

However, things start changing when they start receiving threats messages from the anonymous stalker who happens to know all of their darkest secrets.
This is another shoe like the Gossip Girl that checks the box of romance, mystery, and troubled family relationships. Although darker than the former. Riverdale is a Netflix series that features a close group of friends who get entangled in their town’s drama.
The town, Riverdale, is shaken up when a well-known high school student is murdered. The mystery becomes a question that needs answers. In search of the answers, Archie Andrews and his friends begin to unravel the mysteries behind the whole thing and the town, while telling the story about the dramas of teenage life.

The Vampire Diaries
If you are missing the complex love triangles and troubled family relationships of Gossip Girl, then The Vampire Diaries is just the solution that you need. Darker than former, though.

Elite is a Netflix crime drama that tells the story of three working-class teens who enrolled in the most exclusive school in Spain after being displaced by an earthquake. Three working-class teens amid the elite, several clashes occur between them, which eventually turns fatal and lead to murder.
Just like the battle between Blair Waldorf and Jenny Humphrey in the Gossip girl, although a bit more dramatic. Elite checks the box of crime, drama, and thriller.
A spin-off series of The Vampire Diaries, although it has so much more than one would expect from it being a spin-off. The originals is more mature and tells a story of a serious drama than the typical love triangles. The show centers on three of the six, Mikaelson siblings: Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah.
The Mikaelsons are infamous throughout the Supernatural community, known as the “Originals,”; aptly named for being the first, or original, Vampires in creation. It tells the story of how the power-hungry family looks to take back the city that they built and dominate all those who have done them wrong. The show has an intriguing storyline, and also bloodier. It checks the box of drama, fantasy, and horror.
Set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed the earth. The only ones that survived the apocalypse were those in space. The show tells the story of how these people live in the space station called the Ark – and how, after three generations in the space, the population of the Ark gets beyond carrying capacity.

The show has more action, and your favorite character has just as much chance of dying a horrible death as the next character.
