Watching alone is optional.

Thanks to a nice bump from NetflixYou has become everyone's new favorite show of 2019. Of course, Joe Goldberg is not the first fictional stalker-slash-serial-killer to make you question everything from your own social media security to your attraction to an actor's cheekbones.

Below, 10 other shows you should watch if you enjoyed the experience of You and never want to leave your house ever again.

If you can't wait for You season two and need something nice to look at: The Fall

If the act of watching Jamie Dornan play a dangerous and twisted game of cat-and-mouse with Gillian Anderson is wrong, I don't want to be right.

If you're new to the genre and need a good binge to last several days/weekends: Dexter

For eight seasons, Michael C. Hall played Dexter Morgan, a serial killer who also happened to be a forensic technician specializing in blood spatter pattern analysis. Feel free to skip this if blood isn't your thing, but know that the majority of this list is um, pretty splattery.

If you're new to the genre but only have, say, 10 hours (the length of You): The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story

Darren Criss' portrayal of Versace's killer Andrew Cunanan earned him both the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie and the Golden Globe for Best Actor—Miniseries or Television Film. His work is so bone-chilling, you will definitely have some sleepless nights (which is why a 10-hour binge works best here).

If you want #JusticeforPeach and feel like the world needs more Shay Mitchell: Pretty Little Liars

Longtime PLL fans can obviously skip this, but if you're finally coming to your senses to commit to this brilliant show, congrats! PLL nation is surely seething with jealousy right now as you get to experience the show for the very first time. (Plus, a spinoff, Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, is coming. You'll want to be fluent in all things PLL.)

If you want #JusticeforBeck and a whole lot more Elizabeth Lail: Dead of Summer

Before she was Beck, Elizabeth Lail starred in this supernatural horror series set in the 1980s at a Midwestern summer camp from the creator of Once Upon A Time. Unlike OUAT, this show was canceled after just one season (which technically still makes it super bingeable).

If you're tired of male serial killers: Killing Eve

With just eight episodes, this bingeable series is returning in 2019 with a second season. Run—don't walk—to finish season one so you can join everyone else in obsessing over Eve Polastri and the assassin she's obsessed with, Villanelle. Also, Sandra Oh is a badass.

If you want to travel back in time, like way back: The Alienist

The only thing you need to know about The Alienist is that beautiful human Luke Evans is in it and that the show is nothing like Beauty and the Beast.

If you need something a little out of the ordinary: Perfume

This German series centers around a killer who collects body parts for… you guessed it: perfume. At just six episodes long (with a second season on the way), you'll want to cancel everything and watch with the lights on.

If you're into older killers: Hannibal

Sorry to anyone who doesn't understand the attraction of Mads Mikkelsen, who played the complicated Hannibal Lecter for three seasons.

If you're actually done with serial killers and want to focus on the people catching them: Luther

Go ahead, let DCI John Luther (Idris Elba) take care of you. Since season one, the show has decreased in the number of episodes from six in season one to four in season five. Unfortunately, that means limited Idris screen time, but take what you can get, I guess.

Bonus: If you're willing to watch ANYTHING starring Penn Badgley that’s not You or Gossip Girl: His episode of What I Like About You

BABY PENN BADGLEY ALERT! 

If you feel the need to appreciate other parts of Penn: The Bedford Diaries

This also starred Milo Ventimiglia. There is absolutely nothing scary about the show, but hands up if you are a fan of Penn with long hair.
