This May is going to get very busy very soon, as many TV channels and streaming services are presenting some hotly anticipated new shows.
However, everyone knows that Disney+ 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' and Netflix's 'Stranger Things' Season 4 will dominate most conversations, so it would be interesting to learn about less widely anticipated but nonetheless interesting shows.
So, without further ado, here are 3 series worth watching this May:
'The Staircase' (HBO Max)
HBO Max is clearly asserting its dominance when it comes to prestige television dramas with a pretty strong cast. The upcoming true-crime series starring Colin Firth, Toni Collette and Dane DeHaan will tell the story of disgraced novelist Michael Peterson, accused and convicted of killing his wife by pushing her down the stairs. The 8-episode mini-series will be directed by Antionio Campos ('The Devil All the Time') and is sure to serve as a much-needed thriller to gorge on this May.
'The Staircase' arrives on HBO Max on May 5, 2022.
'The Pentaverate' (Netflix)
Mike Myers is finally back! And with that deliriously weird premise people will no doubt be excited for the comedian's return. The show will center around an unlikely savior of the world (Myers) who tries to uncover a global conspiracy involving ancient magical rituals and secret societies. Myers will play 8 (!) characters and will no doubt display his comedic abilities at their brightest. The miniseries also stars other comedy giants, including Keegan-Michael Key and Ken Jeong. Get ready for a goofy but entertaining journey filled with gags and black humor.
