Clusterf**k: Woodstock ‘99

The 21st century might’ve had Fyre Festival, but the 90s had Woodstock ‘99. What was originally supposed to celebrate the peace, love and great music synonymous with the name turned into a three-day chaotic nightmare.

The Sandman

Based on the comic book written by Neil Gaiman, The Sandman goes all out with a big budget and a stellar cast, including the likes of Tom Sturridge and GoT royalty Gwendoline Christie. With rich source material to pull from (we’re talking a 75-volume comic series and 11-hour audio adaptation), there are big expectations for Netflix’s latest contribution to the fantasy genre. For those not familiar, The Sandman tells the tale of Dream as he embarks on a journey to reclaim his power and restore his realm after being imprisoned for over 100 years. By the sounds of reviews rolling in, it’s the kind of captivating fantasy that’ll get everyone hooked.

Never Have I Ever, Season 3

Lovers of Mindy Kaling unite: a third instalment of her hilarious Never Have I Ever is on its way back to our screens. This coming-of-age dramedy will have everything we’ve come to know and love from the series. Witty teenage sass, nostalgic second-hand embarrassment and internal turmoil as the love triangle between Devi, Paxton and Ben no doubt escalates in tension.

She-Hulk: Attorney At Law

If you ever saw Tatiana Maslany in Orphan Black, you’d be well versed in the range she has. If not, well, you’re in for a treat as she plays Jennifer Walters in She-Hulk: Attorney At Law. On face value, Jennifer sounds like any other modern-millennial woman: 30-something, single and with a successful career. There’s only one catch. She’s also a green 6-foot-7-inch super-powered hulk. As if adult life couldn’t get any more complicated.

House of the Dragon

It’s been three years since Game of Thrones last hit our screens, and while we’re still not over that ending, we’re excited to revisit Westeros with its prequel House of the Dragon. Set 300 years before the original series, House of the Dragon deep dives into the Targaryen family and the civil war that wreaked havoc among them. Along with introducing us to new power players, like the Hightower family, its biggest takeaway will be witnessing the beginning of the end for the infamous Targaryen family.

Selling the OC

It’s no surprise that 21st-century viewers have a fascination for reality tv. It’s why the likes of Selling Sunset have risen to fame, so much so that it’s getting its very own spin-off. Meet Selling the OC. Featuring twin brothers from the original series, Brett and Jason Oppenheim, the new show focuses on the launch of their second office and follows the professional and personal lives (read: drama) of their new team. Of course, all this can’t be completed without the perfect backdrop… the coastal haven of Newport Beach.
