TV shows like Gossip Girl: What to watch when it’s all over

Have you just wrapped up Season 6 of Gossip Girl and don't know what life is? We've got you covered with the best TV shows like Gossip Girl to follow up with. Ex-oh, ex-oh *snaps fingers* Gossip Girl.

Five years. Five years we spent with those catty Upper East Siders, only to find out that Gossip Girl was actually - well, you know who.

If you're like us, you've been frantically trawling every streaming and paid TV service just to find something to fill the hole left by the bitchiness of Blair and Bass. Unfortunately, life doesn't just serve you up a delicious dish of high-class treachery, you've got to find it yourself. The problem is, there are so many carbon copies trying to replicate Gossip Girl's success, that anything even close to the real thing is like a rare unicorn or an elusive blogger with all the goss.

Here at, we've mined Australia's streaming services (Netflix, Presto, and Stan) to find a few gems as dazzling as Gossip Girl. They might not be as irresistible as the real thing, but they're a good knock-off nonetheless.

Cue the marathon.
