You've likely been watching a ton of television under quarantine. But if you've just finished binging your favorite shows, we've got some related recommendations (thanks, CBS All Access!). So whether you're into action, romance, reality, or adventure, the streaming service is sure to have your next great obsession.
If You Liked Beauty And The Beast…

You'll love Tell Me A Story.
Once upon a time, there lived a beauty and a beast in an enchanted land. Only in CBS' 1987 fantasy-romance, the "beauty" was assistant district attorney Catherine (Linda Hamilton), the noble "man-beast" was feline-faced Vincent (Ron Perlman, rocking an '80s hair-metal mane), and the "enchanted land" was Manhattan.
Just like Beauty and the Beast, Tell Me A Story reimagines beloved fairy tales as dark and twisted psychological thrillers. The 10-episode second season of this serialized drama spins the stories of Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella into a tale like no other. Set in modern-day New York City, the first season reimagines The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel.
So if you've blown through all three seasons of Beauty and the Beast, check out this modern-day retelling.
If You Liked The Amazing Race…

You'll love Blood & Treasure.
If you're a fan of the Phil Keoghan–hosted reality competition, then you know the gist: Teams of two race around the world for a shot at a million dollars.
While you wait for Season 32 of The Amazing Race to kick off this fall, why not give another globe-trotting adventure a gander? Like TAR, Blood & Treasure boasts exotic locales and nail-biting suspense, centered on the dynamic duo of a brilliant antiquities expert (Matt Barr) and a cunning art thief (Sofia Pernas).
If You Liked The Good Wife…

You'll love The Good Fight.
In a way, The Good Wife was about starting over: Alicia Florrick (Emmy winner Julianna Marguiles) returned to law after a very public sex-and-corruption scandal involving her politician husband.
And so is its spinoff, The Good Fight. After an enormous financial scam wipes out her savings, Diane Lockhart (the inimitable Christine Baranski) is forced to move to a new firm, where she joins forces with former employee Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo). The two legal dramas share the same DNA: Both were created by husband-and-wife team Robert and Michelle King, and feature pitch-perfect writing, directing, acting—and fashion!
If You Liked Elementary…

You'll love Why Women Kill.
Technically, these two shows couldn't be any more different: Elementary reinvented the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle detective stories as a New York City–set procedural drama, while Why Women Kill is a time-hopping (and bed-hopping) soap. But both tap into the wide-ranging talent of Lucy Liu—as the gender-swapped no-nonsense Watson in the former, and as '80s socialite Simone in the latter.
If You Liked Survivor: Winners At War…

You'll love Big Brother: All-Stars.
Like Survivor, Big Brother is also celebrating its 20th anniversary—and what better way to mark the milestone than with another all-stars edition!
Survivor: Winners At War united the most memorable, heroic, and celebrated champs from the past two decades. The gameplay on an all-star season is just next-level. So if you're into epic comps, shocking blindsides, and a masterclass in strategy, you won't want to miss the champs, the runners-up, and the best to never win the game battling for glory in the BB house.
