If you love You, you'll fall for these similar shows immediately.

I see you. You're mindlessly browsing online, looking for your next great binge.

Maybe you've just finished the latest season of You and want something similar. Maybe you're eagerly awaiting its return. Whichever the case, you're unsettled. You're bored. You want to replicate the thrill You gave you. You enjoy its darkness and clever humour and subtle brilliance.

You're also mad at yourself for finding a charming killer endearing. We've all been there. But while the streaming overlords keep us waiting for new episodes of You, *you* need something that will fill your empty heart in the meantime.

I know you. You'll absolutely love these 10 shows. You is the chosen one, but these are all good options. You're welcome.

1. Dexter


Year: 2006

Cast: Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, James Remar, Lauren Vélez

You may remember Dexter. Before Joe Goldberg came around, he was the world's favourite psychopath. Blood spatter analyst by day, vigilante serial killer by night. Deviant for sure, but with a firm moral code, which made him surprisingly likeable.

Without Dexter, maybe there would be no You. A revival is coming out in November. Until then, the original is calling your name. Tonight's the night.

3. Killing Eve


Year: 2018

You'll be mesmerised by Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh's chemistry. It's the stuff Joe and Love aspire to.

Jamie Dornan, star of 50 Shades of Grey, plays a killer with the uncanny ability to hide in plain sight. Sounds familiar? As he stalks and preys on victims in Belfast, a police detective from London is hot on his trail.

5. Hannibal


Year: 2013

Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, Caroline Dhavernas, Hettienne Park

Mads Mikkelsen's sheer on-screen presence exudes evil, so there's no wonder he was (perfectly) cast as one of the most notorious fictional killers of all time. Hannibal is all about a forensic psychiatrist who is secretly a cannibalistic serial murderer. It also showcases his surprising and escalating bond with an FBI profiler.

The show is gory. You're wondering if you can take it. Tune in to find out.

6. Dirty John


Year: 2018

Cast: Connie Britton, Christian Slater, Eric Bana, Amanda Peet

Veering into true crime territory, Dirty John is another anthology, but this one tackles love gone wrong. Each season follows a romantic relationship that slowly deteriorates to a catastrophic climax. It will make you wonder whether you can really know someone.

After all, do you think that Joe is destined for a happy ending?

7. Barry


Year: 2018

Cast: Bill Hader, Henry Winkler, Sarah Goldberg, Stephen Root, Anthony Carrigan

These shows take a certain psychological toll, so you might want to decompress. Enter Barry, a dark comedy about a hit man who moves to Los Angeles and discovers the joy of acting. Too bad his new passion interferes with his irregular job.

Barry does an excellent job at balancing darkness with laughs. You probably think that the premise – a killer for hire in Hollywood – sounds silly. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
