Type: TV Series
Release Date: August 24th, 2018

This supernatural series has been on our radar for most of 2018 and we still don’t quite fully know what the series is about or where it’s going to take us. What we do is know is that a young couple has escaped the confines of a prison and possess abilities and that they’re being hunted down. It looks like it’s going to be trippy at times but a rollercoaster we can’t wait to ride.


Ozark (Season 2)

Netflix’s highest ranked drama and our best series streaming on Netflix is back for its long-awaited second outing.
