Pretty Little Liars has finished and it's probably safe to say that we're all feeling an A-shaped gap in our lives. We've got to wait until April until the second half of Season 7 arrives on Netflix, with the final ever episodes of PLL. 

As such, we've put together a list of some of our favourite TV shows, all of which you can stream on Netflix, which will hopefully curb your PLL addiction and compensate for the lack of jaw-dropping twists, crazy fashion and murder mysteries (until April at least).

1.  Gilmore Girls

If you've never seen Gilmore Girls, the show follows single mother Lorelai Gilmore (who got pregnant at 16) and her daughter/BFF Rory, who are living in a very quirky fictional town on the US east coast.

The show is great and explores a number of themes including family, friendship and romance, as well as generational divides and social class. Seasons 1-7 are on Netflix now, and there's a new series, Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life, dropping on 25th November.

2. Gossip Girl

If you like the mystery element of PLL, Gossip Girl is perfect for you (albeit much less murdersome). The series follows the lives and dramas of privileged prep school teens in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. It's romantic, funny, and very glamorous. Seasons 1-6 are streaming now. 

3. 90210

Siblings Annie and Dixon move from Kansas to Beverly Hills, where they deal with non-stop drama at their exclusive new high school, where tumultuous friendships and rollercoaster romances rule. 90210 is a great teen drama dealing with issues of class, race, teen pregnancy and drug abuse. Seasons 1-5 are on Netflix now.

4. Shadowhunters

Clary Fray is your typical teenage girl - who suddenly learns that she’s part of a race of demon-hunting humans who have the blood of angels. If you love the mystery and supernatural elements of PLL, you'll love this.

5. Teen Wolf

An animal bite turns a high schooler into a werewolf, and he suddenly becomes a star athlete and get lots of female attention. The series also stars Cody Christian who plays Mike Montgomery in PLL. 


6. Charmed

Three sisters discover an ancient text in their mansion attic and possess latent supernatural powers. Mischief and drama then ensue. Starring the likes of Shannen Doherty and Rose McGowan, the series also features another Montgomery - Aria's mother Ella (Holly Marie Combs).


7. Skins

If you missed Skins the first time it was on, where were you?? Nevertheless, it's never too late to catch up thanks to the power of streaming. Set in Bristol, this gritty, grimy drama follows a group of rebellious kids in sixth form. The series also provides an interesting commentary on teen life in the UK. 


8. Jane The Virgin

This is a super quirky telenovela about how Jane, a waitress and aspiring writer, becomes accidently artificially insemenated and falls pregnant - despite being a virgin. It's a very funny melodrama and is also great if you want to learn some Spanish as you binge-watch! 

Pretty Little Liars: Season 7, Part 2 will arrive on Netflix in April next year.
