The Wilds Season 2
As their quest for rescue continues, the 2020 smash-hit series returns for a second season that puts the survivors/test subjects to fresh challenges. This season’s narrative continues the numerous tales from the previous season and adds to the rising tensions. Rachel is still coming to terms with her sister’s death and the loss of her arm.
Shelby and Toni’s covert relationship continues, but their developing friendship is tested as a schism forms among the camp due to the fear of shifting allegiances. In another part of the world, the Twilight of Adam trials begins with a group of adolescent lads isolated and struggling for power.
Things will only become heated as the mystery surrounding their predicament deepens, and the two sides become aware of one another. Will the sexes fight, or will they figure out a way to work together to solve the dangerous game they have been forced to play? Find out when the next season of The Wilds debuts in May.
The Kids In The Hall
The sketch comedy group, The Kids in the Hall, was founded in 1984 and is best known for its sketch television program, which aired from 1989 to 1995. The Kids in the Hall will return to Amazon Prime on May 13 with a new season of satirical sketch comedy, now again titled The Kids in the Hall, in their first freshly recorded performances since The Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
With its comic book style animation, laugh out loud moments, heart-wrenching tale, and outstanding music, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse stands out from its live-action Spider-Man cousins. It isn’t easy to give it justice in a few lines, but it’s worth seeing if you’re a Spidey, superhero, comic book, or general movie lover. It completed the whole Marvel universe storey thread before Marvel’s Phase 4 plans included it in the MCU movies and TV series, making it a pioneering film in many respects.
Night Sky Original
According to Irene and Franklin York, a retired couple, a chamber dug in their garden leads to a bizarre, abandoned planet. The Yorks’ tranquil life is upended when an intriguing young man comes, and the mystery room they thought they knew so well turns out to be far more than they could have ever dreamed. Sissy Spacek and JK Simmons star.
If you thought you’d seen the last of Bosch, think again. In Bosch: Legacy, the LAPD detective embarks on a new career as a private investigator. His first assignment is to find the heir to a sick billionaire’s riches, but he soon discovers tremendous forces are working against him. When he realizes that the riddle is more complicated than he first anticipated, he must rely on his wits and old-school methods to solve it.
However, Bosch isn’t the only one beginning a new chapter; his daughter Maddie, now a rookie patrol policeman, is unsure of what type of cop she wants to be when she is teamed with a no-nonsense veteran in the field. Unlike its predecessor, Bosch: Legacy will premiere on FreeVee, Amazon’s new free streaming service, formerly known as IMDB TV.
