List Rules Vote up shows perfect for fans of the Notebook.

If you’re looking for TV shows and movies like The Notebook, you’ll find some excellent options here. For The Notebook fans who can’t get enough romance and drama on the big or small screen, lots of films and television shows offer that fix. No, they don’t all star Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, but they do feature many similar themes from the 2004 romance film.

Nicholas Sparks is a phenomenon. If you’re a fan, you probably feel nothing else comes close to a Sparks book – or a movie based on one of his books. Not surprisingly, you’ll find plenty of other Sparks movies on this list, including The Choice, A Walk to Remember, Dear John, The Lucky One, and The Last Song. All deliver hefty doses of romance, and a good measure of conflict, too.

But what about the non-Sparks films and TV programs? Shows like The Notebook often play on the film’s theme of “poor boy loves rich girl” drama. The Notebook similar shows include Gossip Girl, Downton Abbey, The O.C., and 90210.  The same is true for The Notebook similar movies. Who can forget the tragic romance of Rose and Jack in 1997’s Titanic?
