Set in the year 2033, this fun sci-fi imagines a future where people’s consciousness can be uploaded into one of six virtual-reality hotels to live out their entire afterlives after they die – if they have the money to pay for it. This is exactly what happens to party animal Nathan – after his self-driving car crashes, his girlfriend decides to have him uploaded to the Lakeview afterlife. That’s where Nathan meets Nora, a cash-strapped Lakeview customer service agent living in Brooklyn. Brought to us by Greg Daniels, who created the US version of The Office.
Homecoming S2 | 22 May 2020
This season, Janelle Monáe plays a woman who wakes up in a rowboat with absolutely no memory of how she got there, or anything else about herself, while Stephen James reprises his role in the mystery-thriller as the amnesiac Walter Cruz. Homecoming was created by Mr Robot‘s Sam Esmail, and this season also features Audrey Temple, fresh off her role in Watchmen. Look out for Oscar winner Chris Cooper, as well as Joan Cusack. Season 2 may not have Julia Roberts in the cast, but it promises to be as worthwhile as the first.
