25 of the Most Obsessive Love Stories on TV

Dirty John/ Bravo

Love is not always love … especially not when it comes to obsessive love.

We’ve seen the formula on many of our TV shows: infatuation turns to an unhealthy obsession which sometimes turns into full-on stalking.

There are various types of obsessive love.

There’s the outright stalker that hopes his good charms win over the girl before he eventually kills her.

There’s also the obsessed lover who hides behind a computer screen or mask, and then there are the subtler stalkers who think their behaviors are totally normal when, in fact, they’re 100% creepy and dangerous.

But the one thing they all have in common?

The desire to possess and control the person they have strong feelings for without accepting rejection.

And this doesn’t just pertain to men; women can be just as psychologically manipulative.

Take a look below at some of the most obsessive love stories on TV!

Which couples would you add to the list?

1. Debra & John – Dirty John

Debra & John - Dirty John
Dirty John is a real-life story that inspired a viral podcast and later, a Bravo TV series. From the outside, Debra had a perfect life, but she couldn’t find love. But when she met John, a charming nurse anesthetist, she was swept off her feet. But John wasn’t what he seemed and her children quickly picked up on his conman-like tendencies. You’ll never believe how this twisted love story ends.

2. Joe & Beck – YOU

Joe & Beck - YOU
Joe was a classic sociopath that did a horrible job at lurking outside of apartments, but Beck never noticed because she was too busy trying to craft the perfect life on social media. She was an easy target — she was impressionable with low self-esteem. She thought she’d hit the jackpot when she met Joe, but little did she know, he was going to be her biggest nightmare. The series allowed you to get inside Joe’s mind and understand his motivations which, at times, made you almost agree with him. Scary.

3. Elena & Damon (and Stefan) – The Vampire Diaries

Elena & Damon (and Stefan) - The Vampire Diaries
While I was a huge #Delena fan, you have to admit that, at times, their relationship was a little creepy. Aside from their massive age difference, Damon spent hundreds of years trying to find Katherine, fell in love with her doppleganger then stole her from his brother Stefan, who also cozied up to Elena because of her resemblance to Katherine. Their relationship was toxic and controlling, but they couldn’t let each other go.

4. Jen and Henry – Dawsons Creek

Jen and Henry - Dawsons Creek
Henry followed Jen around for months, stood outside her house for hours and would show up at her work just so she would talk to him. That’s borderline creepy if you ask me.

5. Chuck and Blair – Gossip Girl

Chuck and Blair - Gossip Girl
We all looked at Chuck Bass through rose-tinted glass because duh, he’s Chuck Bass. But really, the series tried to normalize and write off his controlling, possessive, dominant, and entitled ways as typical ‘bad boy’ behavior. He manipulated Blair on many occasions, tried to buy her affection with expensive gifts, and let’s not forget, tried to sexually assault half the characters.

Netflix Renews Spanish Drama 'Elite' for Fifth Season Ahead of Season 4 Premiere, Adds News Cast Members

We’ve got some elite news!

Spanish drama Elite has been renewed for a fifth season at Netflix!

The news isn’t all that shocking considering the drama, set in the ritzy private school of Las Encinas in Spain, is one of the streamer’s best performing Spanish originals. 

Not only is the cast incredible, the first few seasons were hinged around an intoxicating murder mystery and plenty of steamy love scenes. 

The renewal comes ahead of the fourth season, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date. In 2020, filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and an outbreak on set.

It’s possible the series will return in the spring/summer of 2021. 

The upcoming season will see a handful of familiar faces including Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), and Ander (Aron Piper) as they were held back due to their shenanigans. The drama will also welcome new students Manu Ríos , Carla Díaz , Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch to shake things up. 

Deadline also reports that the fifth season has added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilan actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast.

‘Younger’ Moving to Paramount+ for Seventh and Final Season – Watch the Emotional Sneak Peek

"Younger" The Unusual Suspect Review

Younger has a new home.

After six seasons at TV Land, the hit TV show about Liza Miller, a middle-aged, divorced mom who lies about being twenty-something to restart her career in publishing, is moving to Paramount+. 

ViacomCBS made the announcement during the streaming presentation on Wednesday. 

Paramount+ is a new streaming service that will replace CBS All Access. on March 4.

The base tier will cost $5 and include ads. For ad-free streaming, the monthly price will set you back $10.

Now, that doesn’t seem like a lot, but if you’re an avid TV watcher, adding yet another streaming service to your monthly bundle might not be totally feasible. 

Is ‘Younger’ Ending with Season 7? Hilary Duff Gives the Scoop

The good news is that the 12-episode final season will also air on TV Land. The catch? It will run delayed likely after the series wraps, which means you might not avoid spoilers.

Pick your battles, I guess. 

The move, while annoying for some, isn’t completely out of the blue. The series was supposed to the Paramount Network for its sixth season but ultimately stayed at TV Land. 

With such a dedicated fan-base and so much potential, it doesn’t seem like 12 20-minute episodes are going to provide a satisfactory conclusion. And I don’t think I’m ready for Liza to finally choose between #TeamJosh and #TeamCharles permanently.

The seventh season was initially delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the cast has been busy filming in New York as of late. 

And that’s why fans were able to get a sneak peek at the upcoming season:

As Liza says, “embrace the past, accept the present, and keep moving forward.”

While it sure does seem like Liza picks Charles in the end, Sutton Foster promises that the final season will bring “all the emotional, all the laughs, and all the drama defined Younger and have made it the success it is.”

The series stars Foster, Hilary Duff, Nico Tortorella, Debi Mazar, Miriam Shor, Molly Bernard, Charles Michael Davis and Peter Hermann.

Back in March, it was announced that Duff would be getting a spinoff based on her character Kelsey Peters
