The New TV Premieres From Netflix And Others That You Should Not Miss This May

#1: Master Of None, Season 2 (Netflix) - May 12
This dramedy helmed by comedian Aziz Ansari is back for a second season after its critically acclaimed, Emmy-winning first season. This time, Dev (Ansari) is back from his sojourn in Italy and we can expect more of his signature humour and wit as he continues to navigate the puzzling ways of love, race and culture in buzzing New York.

This new drama series first aired on CBC in Canada in March, but will be released worldwide on Netflix come May. Based on the classic children’s novel Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, the story is still set in olden times, but themes such as abuse, prejudice and identity are still as relevant as ever.

Ellie Kemper stars as a mole woman who is now navigating New York with her trademark optimism and naivety after being trapped in a bunker for 15 years. The writing is sharp and the plot lines are incredibly funny – unsurprising for a sitcom co-created by Tina Fey – but the breakout star has to be Tituss Burgess, who plays the melodramatic, excessive and flamboyant gay roommate to a fault.

The cult drama series of the 90s is back after almost 30 years since it last aired. While not much is known regarding the plot of this new season, fans can look forward to the return of both the original cast as well as co-creaters Mark Frost and David Lynch, with a bunch of recognisable new stars, such as Laura Dern, Naomi Watts and Amanda Seyfried, Image: Twin Peaks’ Facebook #5: Still Star-Crossed, Season 1 (ABC) - May 29
This brand new period drama produced by Shonda Rhimes and created by Scandal writer Heather Mitchell is a sequel of sorts to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, as the plot revolves around the aftermath of the tragic deaths of the titular characters. Just seven episodes of this series will air, and the cast includes British actress Lashana Lynch and Canadian actor Torrance Coombs. Image: @dizi_mania Twitter   Like this?
