The Society

Game Of Thrones is about to end but it’s just the beginning for these TV shows debuting this month:

Dead To Me

After the death of her husband as a result of a hit-and-run, Jen copes by attending a support group. There, she meets the annoyingly upbeat, glass-half-full Judy and finds company and solace in their friendship. But Judy is hiding a shocking secret. Will it come between their friendship? The 10-episode dark comedy series stars Christina Applegate, Linda Cardellini and James Marsden.

Dead To Me is available on Netflix.


On April 26, 1986, a massive explosion at the Chernobyl Nuclear Plant in Pripyat, Ukraine led to the spread of radioactive material to as far as its neighbouring countries Belarus and Russia. This five-part miniseries chronicles the efforts of the courageous men and women who risked their lives trying to diagnose the cause of the explosion and prevent it from further damage. Starring Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgard and Emily Watson.

Chernobyl airs every Tuesday at 9am on HBO (Astro Ch 411).

The Society

In The Society, everyone in the town of West Ham mysteriously vanishes one day except for its teen inhabitants. As the teens figure out what happened to their parents, leaders rise and establish some form of law and order to prevent the town from running amok. The 10-episode series is a modern take on the classic novel Lord Of The Flies. Starring Kathryn Newton, Gideon Adlon and Sean Berdy.

The Society is available on Netflix.

Good Omens

With Game Of Thrones wrapping up its eighth and final season this month, the next most talked-about TV event has to be Good Omens. Based on the popular novel of the same name by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, the six-episode series sees a demon (David Tennant) and an angel (Michael Sheen) working together to stop the world from ending.

Good Omens premieres May 31 on Amazon Prime Video.

Zhao Yao: The Legends

This 55-episode series from China sees Zhao Yao who, after her death, returns as a spirit bent on exacting revenge on Chen Lan for a past transgression he committed. She possesses the body of Qin Zhi Yan, a disciple of Chen Lan, to get close to him. But things get complicated when she falls for him. Starring Xu Kai and Xiao Yan.
