Created by Sex and the City showrunner Darren Star, Emily in Paris premiered on Netflix earlier this month. The series stars Lily Collins as Emily Cooper, a young woman who moves to Paris where she begins working at a French marketing firm. Tasked with bringing an American perspective to the Parisian brand, Emily struggles to adjust to the European culture.

If you’ve already finished watching the show’s premiere season and you’re looking for something new to check out, then you’ve come to the right place.

Without further ado, here are five shows like Emily in Paris that you can find on Netflix.

1. Gossip Girl

If you watched Emily in Paris for the fashion, then consider checking out Gossip Girl. Emily (Lily Collins) and Mindy (Ashley Park) wear beautiful clothing each episode and watching them walk around Paris just reminded me of watching Blair and Serena strutting down the streets of New York City. Like Gossip Girl, Emily in Paris features a captivating setting and plenty of attractive actors.

2. Sweet Magnolias

Sweet Magnolias features JoAnna Garcia Swisher as Maddie Townsend, a recently divorced woman who is trying to get back on her feet. Maddie and her pals Helen (Heather Headley) and Dana Sue (Brooke Elliott) call themselves the Sweet Magnolias. Together, these three childhood friends navigate the complexities of life, love, and family. This show will make you crave a margarita and some good southern cooking.

3. Get Even

Based on the Don’t Get Mad book series by Gretchen McNeil, Get Even focuses on a group of high school girls who form a group to expose bullies at their school. This show reminds me a lot of Pretty Little Liars, except Get Even takes place in the UK. I binged the entire first season of this series in a day. It’s a campy teen drama, but the friendship that develops between the main characters is really sweet.

4. Gilmore Girls

You can’t go wrong with this classic. If you liked watching Emily in Paris for its easily digestible plotlines, then you might want to take a look at Gilmore Girls. Starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel, this show follows Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, a mother and daughter who live in the quirky town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut. Gilmore Girls is the television equivalent of comfort food. Like Emily in Paris, Gilmore Girls is very character-driven.

5. The Vampire Diaries

If you loved Emily in Paris because it had so many attractive actors in it, then consider watching The Vampire Diaries. As reported by IMDb, the series tells the story of Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), a teenage girl whose life is turned upside down when she discovers supernatural secrets hiding just beneath the surface in the town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. I could seriously look at Ian Somerhalder’s face all day.
