On May 27, the first part of the fourth and final season of Stranger Things. The seventh and final season of This Is Us and the second seasons of The Wilds andFlight attendant. As always, every month, on the many streaming platforms (whose companies they’re not doing very well on the stock market, recently), however, there are also several novelties, new series and new stories. Among others, in the next few weeks will arrive: a series about the robber who carried out the robbery from which we began to talk about “Stockholm syndrome”, one about dinosaurs (and with David Attenborough), one with Amy Schumer and one with Obi-Wan Kenobi.

May 5: Netflix

It is a six-episode Swedish series about the story of Clark Olofsson, a 75-year-old Swedish criminal with a very lively life. Moreover, he was present at the bank robbery of 23 August 1973 (guess in which city) after which we began to talk about the “Stockholm syndrome”, that particular and paradoxical condition in which a hostage or the victim of a kidnapping end up sympathizing. with the robber or the kidnapper. The story of how Olofsson – who woke up in prison on 23 August 1973 – got there, at that robbery, is already remarkable. In the series, Olofsson is played by Bill Skarsgård, who was Pennywise, the evil clown of the two. It.

Speaking of the series, Netflix states that “it is based on truths and lies revealed in Clark Olofsson’s autobiography, recreating a fictionalized version of one of the most controversial figures in contemporary Swedish history”.

How I Met Your Father
May 11: Disney +

A series evidently linked to How I Met Your Mother, which lasted nine seasons, the last of which in 2014. Disney + presents it like this: “In the near future Sophie (Kim Cattrall) is telling her son the story of how she met her father”, a story that “brings the viewer back to 2021, where Sophie (Hilary Duff) and her close-knit group of friends are trying to enter adult life without trauma. Always Disney speaks of it as a “remake” with “a lot of surprises even for lovers of the original series”.

It must be said, however, that in the United States, where it has already arrived for a couple of months, it did not like much: many, in fact, considered it too nostalgic and not particularly successful. For those who still want to trust her, it is already known that she will have a second season.

The Snake of Essex
May 13: Apple TV +

A series set in the Victorian era and based on a novel by Sarah Perry, in which the snake in the title is a “something out there” that some believe to be a fearsome “sea creature” that haunts the citizens of a village in Essex, in Eastern England. Clashing over what that something could be – also discussing their approach to life and religion in the meantime – are a widow recently arrived from London and the village vicar played by Tom Hiddleston.

As we understand from the trailer, full of fog and doubts, the widow (played by Claire Danes) who would like to investigate the mysterious snake ends up being accused of having attracted her, the snake.

Life and Beth
May 18: Disney +

A series between comedy and drama in which actress and comedian Amy Schumer plays Beth, a woman who sells wine, lives in Manhattan and has a life where everything seems to go pretty well. The “until” moment of this series is represented by a sudden accident that forces her to “confront her past” about her, something that changes her life. Disney explains it this way: “Through the flashbacks of her adolescence, Beth begins to understand how she became who she is now and who she wants to become”, thus starting a “path towards a better, bolder and more authentic life, learning to express herself and live in a more conscious way, a journey along the avenue of memories that will bring suffering but also humor and acceptance ».

As well as How I Met Your Father, also this series elsewhere have already seen it, and it has already been renewed for a second season. Compared to How I Met Your Father however, it is more popular: it is generally spoken of as the best thing Schumer has done so far.

Starry Night
May 20: Prime Video

A series in which the couple of characters played by Sissy Spacek and JK Simmons discovers, in a basement room in the backyard, a sort of portal that “leads inexplicably to a strange and abandoned planet”. Although some neighbors start asking questions about the two’s behavior, everything is pretty good until an “enigmatic boy” comes to them, and things take a different turn.

Now & Then
May 20: Apple TV +

A series in which, in the original version, a little English and a little Spanish are spoken. It is set in Miami and tells, in thriller form, “the aspirations of youth and the reality of adulthood, when the lives of a group of college best friends change forever after the tragic epilogue of a celebratory weekend that ended in death. of one of them “. It happens that, twenty years after that weekend, the five friends still alive meet again, and they do so because there is “a common threat that puts their apparently perfect worlds at risk”.

The prehistoric planet
May 23: Apple TV +

Another Apple series, this time documentary, which in the original version is told by David Attenborough. With an approach similar to many naturalistic series of recent years, it wants to tell and show what the Earth was like about 66 million years ago, in the Cretaceous period, at the time of the dinosaurs. The soundtrack was handled by Hans Zimmer. The series will combine details on the dinosaurs (for example, the “amazing parenting techniques of the Tyrannosaurus Rex”) with those on the landscapes of the time.

Obi-Wan Kenobi
May 27: Disney +

Another series which, like the previous one, is set «a long time ago», but not on Earth but in «a galaxy far, far away». To be a little more specific, this new series is set about ten years later Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, not a happy ending movie for the Jedi Master played by Ewan McGregor. In the series, Obi-Wan Kenobi is still played by McGregor, and Hayden Christensen also plays the same character he played in Revenge of the Sith.
