3. The Society

Premiere Date: May 10, 2019

Season: 1 (10 episodes)

Development of The Society was first announced last summer as a modern take on Lord of the Flies. The series is created by Christopher Keyser, best known for his work on Party of Five. Marc Webb will serve as the show’s director. He’s best known for directing popular films such as 500 Days of Summer, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

The Society centers on a group of teenagers after they are transported into a replica of their New England town without the presence of any parents. The kids first believe it’s all fun and games with their newfound freedom but then things begin to get dangerous. With no quick solution regarding how to get home, the group must establish some sort of order to survive. The situation causes the group to break and alliances are formed but they must still work together to solve what happened to the adults.

The series is considered a young adult but we have a feeling it will attract viewers of all ages. The ensemble cast of The Society includes Kathryn Newton, Rachel Keller, Gideon Adlon, Jacques Colimon, Olivia DeJonge, Alex Fitzalan, Kristine Froseth, Jose Julian, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Alex MacNicoll, Jack Mulhern, Salena Qureshi, Grace Victoria Cox, Sean Berdy, and Toby Wallace.
