Today we’re sharing a few shows like Pretty Little Liars and the Lying Game on Netflix to help you get through any withdrawal symptoms you might be feeling. PLL is on hiatus until January. The Lying Game, alas, is on hiatus forever since its end in 2013.
During the Pretty Little Liars break (which ends in January, FYI), I’m totally feeling anxious and on edge waiting to find out what happens in the time jump. What did they mean when they said “he’s coming for you.” WHO’S “he”? Who’s coming? And what happened during those five years between the big A reveal and the reunion? WHAT HAPPENED?????? OMG. I can’t breathe. I can’t wait over four more months to find out. I can’t! Inhale. Exhale. Inhale. Exhale.
Everything is going to be okay. Four months will go by fast. In the mean time, to fill the void left by our favorite girls of Rosewood, we’ve compiled a list of shows like Pretty Little Liars and the Lying Game on Netflix. Set up your list and start streaming!

The Secret Circle
The Secret Circle was shown on The CW for one season from 2011-2012. It starred Britt Robertson, Thomas Dekker, Shelley Hennig, Phoebe Tonkin, Jessica Parker Kennedy and Louis Hunter. Cassie is a teenage girl who moves in with her grandmother in Washington State from California. She enrolls in high school only to discover that the elite students, including herself are all witches. Not only that, but their parents also had powers. Unfortunately, they totally screwed up with theirs, and now no one is supposed to use them. I absolutely loved this show and was really sad when it got canned.
Ringer was shown on The CW for one season from 2011-2012. It starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, Kristoffer Polaha, Ioan Gruffudd, Nestor Carbonell and Mike Colter. Bridget and Siobhan are twin sisters who reconnect when Bridget moves to New York after she is the only witness to a professional hit. Siobhan, who is rich, married and pampered, and Bridget take a boating trip together. All is well until Siobhan goes overboard during the boating trip and Bridget assumes her sister’s identity. I also really liked this one, mostly because it starred Buffy. Sorry, Sarah, you could play a million roles, but you’ll also be Buffy to me!
