The Upper East Side, intrigue, gossip, great clothes and young, beautiful and rich protagonists, that is the cult "Gossip Girl" in its full glory. True fans of the production certainly feel quite uncomfortable after watching all seasons - because how to find their place in everyday reality after such a dose of luxury and glitter? Fortunately, there are tv series that will effectively ease the post-series hangover - not all of them will take you into the world of the New York elite, but we guarantee that each of the following titles will interest you.
If you're longing for a little luxury after finishing "Gossip Girl," be sure to check out "Elite." It's a Spanish Netflix production - we have beautiful characters, an elite, somewhat snobby school, crime, intrigue and an engaging story. The new 2017 "Dynasty" will also do well in this category - the rich and spoiled to the core Carringtons will perfectly fill the void left by the Upper East Side teens.
While we're on the subject of modern versions of tv classics, it's impossible not to mention 90210, a series that uses plots from the cult classic Beverly Hills 90210. The result? A casual production that is a pleasure to watch. If you like this kind of atmosphere, you should also check out the already forgotten "One Tree Hill" and "The O.C.". Despite the fact that these series are more than ten years old, they do not lose their attractiveness and will surely appeal to "Gossip Girl" fans. On the other hand, fans of Blair Waldorf will like "Riverdale". Veronica, one of the main characters, resembles her to the very core.
Emma, a kind-hearted foster kid who can't catch a break, finds out she has an identical twin sister, Sutton, who - unlike Emma - was adopted by wealthy parents and is seemingly living an ideal life. After their initial meeting, Sutton talks Emma into stepping into her life for a few days while she pursues a lead on their birth mother. Initially excited to do this favor for her sister, Emma soon learns that Sutton has gone missing and could be in trouble. Now, Emma must decide whether to come clean to Sutton's family and risk her own safety in the hope of uncovering her twin sister's true whereabouts, along with the truth about why they were separated in the first place.
The reboot follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children focusing on Fallon Carrington, the daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington, and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal, a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.

Popular, affluent Nathan basks in the hero-worship of the town, as the star of his high school team. And both boys are the son of former college ball player, Dan Scott, whose long ago choice to abandon Lucas and his mother Karen, will haunt him long into his life with wife Deb, and their son Nathan.
