Breeders – Season 1

No matter if you’re a parent or not, this series is guaranteed to have you in tears – tears of laughter that is. Starring Emmy Award winner Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard, Breeders explores the paradox experienced by parents when they have reached their wit’s end; they would literally die for their children, yet they have a semi-constant desire to kill them. Hilariously relatable, this show is one to watch.

Released 2 March 2020 : 10 episodes

Westworld – Season 3

Westworld is set in a futuristic western-themed amusement park, in which the visitors interact with automatons. However, all hell breaks loose when the robots begin malfunctioning. The third season was highly anticipated, and so far has lived up to expectations – robots, action and some badass characters. The third season of Westworld takes place three months after the events of the second season.

Released 15 March 2020 – 7 episodes (ongoing, released weekly)

The Plot Against America – Season 1, Mini series

The Plot Against America tells the story of an alternate American history during World War II, told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family in New Jersey.

Insecure – Season 4

Within the first season, Insecure followed Issa and Molly, who have been best friends since their college days at Stanford. The series unpacks the story of the black female experience of women in their late 20s as they navigate career and relationship challenges while living in Los Angeles, California.

Mrs. America – Season 1

MrsAmerica tells the story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly, also known as “the sweetheart of the silent majority.” The series follows Cate Blanchett as the lead and has a stellar cast that depicts the struggle of ERA.

Run –  Season 1

This trailer not only showcases a noteworthy cast, but a fast-paced and interesting story and premise. Ruby Richardson honours a pact she made 17 years ago with her college boyfriend, Billy, in which they decided to go on an American tour together if either of them texted the word ‘RUN’.

Being released May 7

I Know This Much Is True – Season 1

This emotive series follows Dominic Birdsey, who revisits his relationship with Thomas, his schizophrenic twin brother, and his efforts to release him from an asylum. The show is based on the second novel by Wally Lamb of the same name published in 1998. This mini series looks as if it will be one for which tissues are needed, but we’re excited for its release.

Being released May 11

The 100 – Season 7

Another reason to be excited for the upcoming month of May, as the seventh, and final season of The 100 will air, wrapping up on its 100th episode. The 100 follows the story of how a nuclear conflict decimated civilisation, and 97 years later, a spaceship accommodating humanity’s lone survivors despatches 100 juvenile delinquents back to the Earth. (Note: unfortunately there is no trailer for season 7 available, so we’re reliving the trailer for Season 1 – so no spoilers!)

Being released May 20

Flack – Season 2

Flack is a drama about a ruthless public-relations professional named Robyn working for a London based firm. Robyn’s ability to get her high-profile celebrity clients out of embarrassing situations is unparalleled, but that, unfortunately, does not mean the same for her own life.  Season 2 sees Robyn putting herself back together again, but who knows what drama will unfold?
