It turns out that the baby is his from his ex-girlfriend, and now he’s left to raise the baby with the help of his brother, two friends, and mother. This comedy show ran for six seasons on Freeform and was hilarious.

Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists

Of course, we had to include this spinoff show created by I. Marlene King. It takes place a few years after where the original Pretty Little Liars left off and stars original series characters, Allison and Mona, as they leave Rosewood and travel to Beacon Heights for a fresh start. However, their fresh start is not as perfect as they may have intended. The show only lasted for one season, but it’s definitely worth watching, especially if you were wondering what happens to these characters in the future.

The show is currently streaming on Hulu.

While Pretty Little Liars was an iconic show that can never be replaced, all on this list are equally as good for different reasons! Take a look at these seven shows and let us know what you think on Twitter @AfterBuzzTV.
