Anne With an E: Season 2
The polarising TV series inspired by the classic Canadian novel Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery is back for a second season this month.
According to the team behind it, the second season of Anne with an E “continues to chart bold new territory, adding new characters and storylines while further exploring themes of identity, prejudice, feminism, bullying, gender parity and empowerment through the lens of its fierce, starry-eyed, irrepressible 14-year-old protagonist”.
If you have yet to watch the original Anne of Green Gables or read the bestselling books, the Netflix series follows Anne (played by Amybeth McNulty), a 13-year-old who has endured an abusive childhood in orphanages and in the homes of strangers.
Set in the late 1890s, Anne is mistakenly sent to live with siblings Marilla and Matthew Cuthbert on Prince Edward Island and thanks to Anne’s unusual disposition life in the small town is turned upside down.
This particular series is a dark re-imagining of the classic novel, but it did manage to find a substantial fan base on Netflix and was granted a second season.
Anne With an E launches on Friday 6 July . The first season is available now on Netflix.
Orange Is The New Black: Season 6
You don’t just watch Orange Is The New Black, you actually live Orange Is The New Black, that’s how intense this viewing experience is.
Orange Is The New Black has become Netflix’s most-watched original series and is based on Piper Kerman’s memoir, Orange Is The New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison.
The highly anticipated sixth season picks up one week after the dramatic events of season five.
After the emergency response team stormed Litchfield Penitentiary, the ladies of Litch have now been torn apart, literally and figuratively, as they enter a new facility. Now newbies, they must navigate new rules and power dynamics, starting at the bottom, and getting hazed by inmates and tortured by guards along the way.
According to Netflix, “friendships will be tested and new allegiances formed — some by choice and others by circumstance — as the women face a slew of charges from the riot”.
We’re now dying to know, will they take plea deals and turn on each other or band together and keep their bonds intact? Only time will tell.
Orange Is The New Black: Season 6 launches on Friday 27 July, all previous seasons are now available on Netflix.
Jim Jefferies: This Is Me Now
In July comedian Jim Jefferies returns to Netflix with his third Netflix Original stand-up special, Jim Jefferies: This Is Me Now.
Performing at the Eventim Apollo in London, the comedian and host of The Jim Jefferies Show unapologetically and hilariously opens up about the challenges of being a single father, reflects on the time someone tried to unsuccessfully extort him for money with a sex tape, and the weirdest gig he’s ever played. It’s a stand-up special sure to bring the laughs.
Jefferies first achieved international attention in 2007 when he was attacked onstage while performing at the Manchester Comedy Store and successfully turned the incident into part of his routine. Since then, many moments from his unique comedy tours have quickly gone viral.
Jim Jefferies: This Is Me Now will launch on Friday 13 July.
