Crazy similarities between new Netflix show ‘YOU’ and ‘Gossip Girl’

Lonely Boy 2.0.

It seems Netflix has really cracked the code when it comes to choosing unmissable, binge-worthy TV shows to house on their network.

Gorgeous young folks with lashings of scandal, murder and sexytimes is the winning formula, if you were wondering.

Cases in point: Riverdale, Pretty Little Liars and our personal old favourite; Gossip Girl.

So you can see why we're beyond excited for the upcoming release of YOU, which promises said gorgeous young folks with lashings of scandal, murder and sexytimes.

But we reckon this show is following the Gossip Girl blueprint in an even bigger way. Mostly because of the casting of a certain Mr Penn Badgley. Like, is this new bloke just Dan Humphrey in disguise?

Here, the similarities we can glean so far between Gossip Girl and YOU.
