34. The Society (TV series)
Premiere date: May 10, 2019
What The Society is about: The Netflix series follows a community who suddenly sees the disappearances of every adult in their small town, leaving behind only teenagers. Together, the survivors must learn to get along and handle the community on their own, but that’s always easier said than done. The mystery thickens as they begin to question if their parents truly disappeared or if they are not where they think they are as a forest is now surrounding the town.
Why you need to watch this: Teenagers in charge of everything now? Who wants to see that? If those are your initial thoughts, I can’t say I blame you. However, you can’t deny that the concept doesn’t sound interesting. The majority of Netflix subscribers would agree with you as The Society became one of the streaming titan’s most binge-watched shows for several weeks.
There has always been something about alternate realities that are so intriguing. Events quickly spin out of control and the teenagers begin to fight over who should be in charge. Everything escalates, demanding a change in their rules when one of their own turns up dead. Who killed her and why?
If the plot of The Society rings familiar to you, that’s because it has been considered a modern take on the popular Lord of the Flies. If you love what you see, you’ll be happy to know that there are more episodes on the way! Netflix was quick to renew the drama. Season 2 of The Society is expected to drop later in 2020. The series stars Kathryn Newton, Gideon Adlon, Sean Berdy and others.
