I can already hear a lot of people saying that there is no reason to keep HBO once Game Of Thrones is over. However, I personally find some interest in the HBO Chernobyl miniseries.
The show is made of 5 episodes and will air from the 6th of May until June 3rd. And as you can guess with the title, the plot will focus on Chernobyl disaster that occurred in Ukrainian SSR in 1986.
For the cast you will find a couple of known faces, but maybe not names. Such as Jared Harris (Lane Pryce in Mad Men and most recently as King Charles VI in The Crown), Stellan Skarsgård (in the Thor and Avengers movies and Emily Watson (Bess McNeil in Breaking the Waves).
Let’s just wait and see how it goes and hope that the show really tries to show the situation and not some kind of fictional story. The writers and creators apparently did a lot of researches and questioned a lot of people for years, so it is reinsuring on that side.
To make your own opinion about HBO Chernobyl here is the first trailer and the last one from today:
