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.

Stream all episodes of Tell Me A Story on CBS All Access. Season 1 also airs now on The CW.

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).

Blood & Treasure streams on CBS All Access.

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!

The Good Fight streams exclusively on CBS All Access.

If You Liked Elementary…

Lucy Liu as Simone

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.

Why Women Kill streams exclusively on CBS All Access.

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.

This week, watch all-new episodes of Big Brother: All-Stars on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access. Plus, drop in on the Houseguests 24/7 with the BB Live Feeds—exclusively available on CBS All Access.

Hey, bibliophiles: Need a breezy summer read? Check out the books that inspired these eight TV shows!

If you loved these page-to-screen adaptations—and are jonesing for more of your favorite characters, you'll want to stock up on the source material. Just in time for National Book Lovers Day on Aug. 9!

Under The Dome

Residents of the fictional town Chester's Mill in Under the Dome

Based on Stephen King's best-selling novel

For three summers (2013–2015), the CBS sci-fi series uncovered the mystery of why and how an impenetrable dome descended on small town Chester's Mill, Maine. At a whopping 1,088 pages, Stephen King's epic is a serious commitment. But the prolific horror author is such a visual storyteller that it's worth reading for the first 100 pages alone, where King describes in shocking detail the post-dome murder and mayhem that befalls Chester's Mill.

Stream Under The Dome on CBS All Access.

The 100

Based on Kass Morgan's four novels: The 100, The 100: Day 21, The 100: Homecoming, and The 100: Rebellion

Bummed about The 100 wrapping up its seven-season run in August? Dive into Kass Morgan's post-apocalyptic young adult novels—which actually provide an entirely new experience, given how much The CW's hit series deviates from its source material. Both the books and the show focus on 100 juvenile delinquents sent to recolonize Earth. If you're a fan of Finn, Raven, Murphy, Charlotte, Jasper, and Monty, you'll be heartbroken to know they're absent from the books. However, if you ship Bellamy and Clarke, you'll love that #Bellarke is endgame. Bellamy, in Chapter 30 of Homecoming: "I want to spend eons with you, Clarke Griffin." Swoon!

The 100 airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW. Stream free on Thursdays only on The CW.

Roswell, New Mexico

Based on Melinda Metz's Roswell High book series

Sure, The CW's hit series—the second TV adaptation of the Roswell High novels—takes some liberties: It ages the characters into 20-somethings and adds timely political issues. But at its heart, Roswell is about the bond between alien Max and Liz, the human he saves (and falls in love with).

If you like your sci-fi with a side of teen angst, Roswell High is essential reading…and should hold you over until Season 3 of Roswell, New Mexico arrives on The CW sometime in 2021.

Stream Roswell, New Mexico only on The CW.

Nancy Drew

Based on the books by ghostwriter Carolyn Keene

Seeing that the source material is from the 1930s, it's no surprise that The CW updated its gritty Nancy Drew reboot for a new generation (think romance and ghosts).

But those looking for a nostalgic read should check out the old-school mysteries. Eagle-eyed viewers will notice a few Easter eggs based on Nancy Drew book titles, such as a nod to The Secret in the Old Attic in the pilot.

Stream every episode of Nancy Drew only on The CW.

Elementary

Based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes book series

Missing the chemistry between Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Watson (Lucy Liu) from Elementary? Well, there's certainly a treasure trove of Sherlock to unearth: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle penned four novels and 56 short stories featuring history's most famous private eye.

The modern-day retelling—which ran for seven seasons on CBS—shifted the setting from London to New York and gender-swapped Holmes' trusty sidekick. Still, it's fun to go back to the source material and spot shared references—e.g., the use of the singlestick as a weapon, "Jamie" Moriarty as Holmes' nemesis, and direct quotes ripped from the pages ("A loaf of bread and a clean collar" is a line straight out of The Hound of the Baskervilles).

Zoo

Based on the 2012 James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge novel Zoo

The white-knuckle thriller aired on CBS from 2015 to 2017 and centered on rogue zoologist Jackson Oz (James Wolk) as he and his team try to figure out why a wave of violent animal attacks on humans is sweeping the world. The series veers from the book by Season 2. But Patterson and Ledwidge's page-turner uniquely shifts the story's POV to the animals themselves.

Gossip Girl

Based on Gossip Girl by Cecily von Ziegesar

Narrated by an omniscient gossipmonger (the voice of Kristen Bell), this steamy teen soap—which ran on The CW from 2007 to 2012—revolved around privileged New York private schoolers Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) and Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) and the guys who obsessed over them.

Can't get enough backstabbing and bed-hopping of upper-crust Upper East Siders? Check out the original young adult novels by Cecily von Ziegesar, who based her books on her experiences at the Nightingale-Bamford School. So what's different in the source material? For starters, in the book, Chuck Bass is—gasp!—a secondary character! And Gossip Girl's identity is never revealed. But there are enough OMG moments to make this your next guilty pleasure. XOXO!

The Vampire Diaries

Based on L.J. Smith's The Vampire Diaries book series

Just like in the source material, there's a love triangle between Elena (Nina Dobrev in The CW series) a "good" vamp (Paul Wesley as Stefan) and his "bad" brother (Ian Somerhalder as Damon).

But other than the names of characters, the books and the TV adaptation couldn't be more different—and that's not necessarily a stake through the heart. Because if you binged all eight seasons of TVD, you'll be treated to an entirely new tale by reading the books.

Over the years, Watch! has captured incredible and stylish photos of your favorite detective duo in both London and New York. Check out these jaw-dropping shots of Elementary stars Jonny Lee Miller (Sherlock Holmes) and Lucy Liu (Joan Watson).
