QUEEN CHARLOTTE: A BRIDGERTON STORY
While fans eagerly await the third season of Bridgerton (with a fourth also confirmed), this upcoming series looks to serve as the perfect binge session. Spanning six episodes, the show revolves around the life of a young Queen Charlotte before her rise to power and how her marriage to King George paved the way for a great love story.

Fans of the dystopian drama genre are in for a treat with this sci-fi show just a few days from release. Based on the series of novels of the same name by Hugh Howey, the plot focuses on the 10,000 residents that remain on Earth and live in a silo underground.
While no one has a clue about its relevance or history, they know for sure that it’s the only thing keeping them alive as they abide by a set of strict rules. Things take a turn for the worst when an engineer named Juliette (Rebecca Ferguson) seeks answers about the situation and the murder of a loved one, only to discover hidden secrets and a web of lies. Will release on May 5 on Apple TV+.
