This show captures the drama and love triangles of Gossip Girl, but has a twist. Everyone in the show is part of the supernatural world, either vampires or werwolves!
Basically the Gossip Girl of the west coast. 90210 features high school students in Los Angeles battling the same struggles in its NYC counterpart.

This show is based in NYC just like Gossip Girl and is set as the prequel to Sex And The City, following Carrie Bradshaw's time in high school.
6. One Tree Hill
Probably the second most popular high school show next to Gossip Girl, however, it shows a very different high school experience. These characters are in a small town, but go through some similar drama.

Essentially the same as Gossip Girl without the actual gossip girl character. This show follows NYC prep school students like the ones in Gossip Girl.

Where Gossip Girl features a variety of social drama, this one focuses around one girl and her pregnancy. You'd be surprised how much goes on in these halls!
Riverdale is a little different than Gossip Girl because it has some horror/thriller vibes. Nevertheless, totally appeals to the same audience because it is about high schoolers finding their way.
