If you are looking for another soapy drama that will allow you to escape from the monotony of your own life, you’ve come to the right place.

We’ve curated the perfect post-Outer Banks viewing list featuring shows that are set in picturesque locales and are filled with more soap than a case of Irish Spring. So check out the list below and get to binge-watching your next great find.

Netflix advertised Outer Banks as Dawson’s Creek meets The Goonies, which if you’re trying to appeal to today’s youth, might not have been the best idea; have today’s teens seen either of these pop culture touchstones? If not, Dawson’s Creek should be the first stop after watching Outer Banks. Set in the small town of Capeside, Massachusetts (but filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina), the coming-of-age drama follows Dawson (James Van Der Beek), an aspiring filmmaker; Joey (Katie Holmes), his best friend and love interest; Pacey (Joshua Jackson), his other best friend and Joey’s other love interest; and Jen (Michelle Williams), the New York transplant who lives next door, who is also Dawson’s love interest, as they experience the triumphs and challenges of growing apart, growing together, and growing up. There are a lot of hormones in one place, but the WB classic took a view of teens that shows rarely did at the time, which is that their problems were just as important and just as serious as those adults were facing. This often translated to Dawson and his circle of friends speaking like adults — sometimes pretentiously so. And while there is no search for lost gold, just a great show about the trials of young adulthood, there will likely never be another show like it.
