Besides the Picnic At Hanging Rock, there are some other great series to catch up with in May. Here are our top picks.
Westworld Season 2
A sci-fi thriller that keeps audiences guessing, Westworld takes place in a fictional Wild West-themed amusement park run by android hosts, which caters to the rich elite who want to indulge in their fantasies no matter how illicit they may be. While little is known about the much awaited second season, viewers can at least expect a whole lot more twists and turns — and hopefully some answers from the questions left from season 1. Starring Evan Rachel Woods, James Marsden, and Thandie Newton.
For The People Season 1
Shonda Rhimes’ new drama, For The People, centres on the lives of six young and talented lawyers working on the opposite sides of the law as they handle the most high-profile and high-stakes federal cases in the country. All these lawyers will put to the test in this rather unique coming-of-age story, both personally and professionally, as their lives intersect and paths interweave in and out of America’s most prestigious trial court. Starring Britt Robertson, Ben Rappaport, and Wesam Keesh.
