Look no further, mates, ‘coz we’ve got you covered with a bunch of excellente shows to add to your viewing schedule.

Game of what?

1. Catch-22

Catch-22 is a World War II satire that mixes an unusual brand of comedy with real-life dark themes, conveying the ravages of war with a humorous spin.

It stars Christopher Abbott, John Yossarian, Kyle Chandler, Hugh Laurie and ultimate daddy George Clooney who also serves as executive producer.

The series is based on a satirical novel by celebrated author Joseph Heller that was first published in 1961.

Peep the trailer below and catch the series only on Stan.

2. Chernobyl

You’re probably all dragoned out at this point so how about something based on real-life events, aye?

Five-part HBO mini-series Chernobyl explores how the 1986 nuclear accident became one of the worst human-made catastrophes in history.

After the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine, Soviet Union experienced a catastrophic explosion, radioactive material was unleashed across Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, and as far as Scandinavia and western Europe, which saw countless brave people sacrifice their lives in an attempt to save Europe from unimaginable disaster.

Catch it on FOX Showcase.

3. Black Mirror

If you’ve been sleeping on Netflix’s trippy series Black Mirror, now’s the time to wake TF up.

Not just because season six is coming in a few weeks.

Not just because it’s the first season since interactive film Bandersnatch aired.

But because Miley Cyrus is joining the cast and that’s reason enough to get on board with literally anything, IMO.

See the trailer below and catch season six via Netflix on June 6.

4. Good Omens

If you’re still hooked on the ~otherworldly~ vibes of Game of Thrones, upcoming series Good Omens is a great one to pivot over to.

Based on the book by acclaimed writers Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens tells the story of the an angel and a demon who form an unlikely alliance to save the world from Armageddon.

The series features a stacked cast including Michael Sheen, David Tennant, Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman, Jack Whitehall, Frances McDormand, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Get hooked on Good Omens via Amazon Prime Video on May 31.


5. Billions

If it’s empires at war that takes your fancy, we prescribe Stan-exclusive series Billions.

Where big, big bucks are involved, big, big scandal follows and with this acclaimed series, we’re guided on a delightfully dirty path led by Charles “Chuck” Rhoades, Jr. (Paul Giamatti), a U.S. Attorney, and Robert “Bobby” Axelrod (Damian Lewis), a billionaire manager of a hedge fund called Axe Capital, two of the richest men in New York who are locked in an intense battle for power.

Catch all four seasons on the local streaming giant.

6. Power

Although the forthcoming sixth season of Stan-exclusive drama series Power will sadly be its last, lead star and executive producer 50 Cent recently revealed that several spinoffs are on their way so it might be time to step into the Power-verse.

For the final season, the show will extend for an epic 15 episodes and will feature Fiddy’s directorial debut as well as the return of Emmy® award-winning director Anthony Hemingway (The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story).

Season six lands on Stan on August 26 but in the meantime, suss out all five seasons to prep you for the epic conclusion.


7. Designated Survivor

The political thriller returns to Netflix for a third season next month and according to recent reports, the show’s about to up the stakes, meaning now’s the time to get onto it.

Following its cancellation by the ABC, the international streaming giant picked it up for a 10-episode third season that will be “bolder” than ever, Business Times reports.

Kiefer Sutherland stars as Thomas Kirkman, an American politician named as the designated survivor for the State of the Union address, who suddenly ascends from the position of U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development to President of the United States after an explosion kills everyone ahead of him in line for the presidency.

Designated Survivor season three hits Netflix on June 7.
