Eleven weeks fly by so fast when you're watching a show as addictive as Riverdale. With Netflix's breakout show coming to a close very soon, you're probably already on the lookout for your next binge-worthy series. Here, we list 10 series that are similar to Riverdale in some way, whether it's the teen drama, the juicy murder case, or just the overall dark, gloomy, and aesthetically pleasing tone.

Twin Peaks

When Riverdale's trailer was first unveiled, many drew comparisons to this '90s cult favorite, and it's easy to see why. Much like Riverdale and its residents, nothing in the fictional Twin Peaks town is quite like it seems and everyone is harboring a dark secret. And again, much like Netflix's show, Twin Peaks has a healthy mix of crime and the bizarre. You'll be eagerly following FBI agent Dale Cooper's (Kyle MacLachlan) murder investigation in no time.

How to Get Away With Murder

This thrilling gem from Shonda Rhimes has everything a Riverdale fan could want: badass female characters, a whodunit mystery, and good old-fashioned hookups and breakups. Oscar winner Viola Davis plays Annalise Keating, a brilliant criminal defense attorney who hires the best and most ambitious members of her class to help solve real-life cases.

Gossip Girl

Okay, the swanky Upper East Side is nowhere like the quaint Riverdale town, but its characters may have more in common than you think. For instance, many have likened the onscreen friendship of Betty and Veronica (Lili Reinhart and Camila Mendes) to that of Serena and Blair (Blake Lively and Leighton Meester). Come to think of it, you can also draw parallels to resident rich mean girl, Cheryl Blossom (Madelaine Petsch). Then there's Jughead (Cole Sprouse), whose brooding outsider status is similar to Dan (Penn Badgley), or Archie (KJ Apa) who is also comparable to Nate (Chace Crawford)...the list goes on.

Scream

This TV adaptation of the hit horror franchise hits all the right notes of intrigue, high school drama, and small-town murder. After a cyber-bullying incident results in a grisly death, a group of students suddenly become the target of a serial killer. Suddenly, the dark secrets of their tiny community resurfaces.

Marvel's Jessica Jones

If you love and can't help but root for Riverdale's awesome female characters, you'll probably fall in love with Jessica Jones, too. Mirroring the former's crime-show elements, this Marvel adaptation has Krysten Ritter playing a former superhero-turned-private investigator. Jessica Jones is unafraid to tread into darker territory, dealing with mature themes such as PTSD and abuse.

PRIMO.

First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.

The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.

There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
