The Mandalorian was the first original TV show to be released on Disney Plus. Created by Jon Favreau, the man who first brought Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man into the world, The Madalorian is set in the Star Wars universe.

The foul-mouthed “evil” genius and his sidekick grandson became instant cult classics when the first season of Rick and Morty aired back in 2013. Since then, their adventures have taken them through time and across dimensions as each season seems to get bigger and more insane.

You can stream Rick and Morty season 4 as well as all the previous seasons on Netflix and All4.

Rick and Morty season 5 is due to air in the US on 20 June 2021 on Adult Swim. It’s likely that, like previous seasons, Rick and Morty’s fifth season will be released weekly episode-by-episode, most likely on E4.

Where can I watch Chernobyl?

Chernobyl was co-produced by HBO and Sky and so is available to watch on Sky Atlantic. You can watch Sky Atlantic with Sky or NOW subscriptions.

Based on the real life events that took place in the Soviet Union in 1986, the dramatic series documents one of the worst nuclear disasters in human history.

Where can I watch Game of Thrones?

Produced by HBO, UK viewers can watch all seasons of Game of Thrones on Sky Atlantic, either on Sky or NOW. Game of Thrones was, without a doubt, the biggest TV show of all time. And despite a less than satisfying final season, it remains a modern-day classic.

Where can I watch Westworld?

You can watch both seasons of Westworld on Sky Atlantic on Sky or NOW, or buy individual episodes on Amazon Prime Video.

Westworld has been the main attraction of HBO’s original programming following the end of Game of Thrones. It has filled the dragon-shaped void in our lives with androids, cowboys and a futuristic sci-fi world with plenty of twists throughout.

The highly-successful series was renewed for its fourth season before its third even ended. As yet there’s still no official release date, which is to be expected as was a two-year gap between season one and two. Plus, COVID.

Where can I watch Succession?

Succession is another popular HBO show, currently filming its third season. You can watch the exploits of the Logan family via Sky or NOW on Sky Atlantic.

Where can I watch Love Island?

The ITV reality TV show that’s taken the world by storm since it premiered in 2015 is pretty much all the TV world talks about each summer. Love Island airs on ITV, but if you want to watch past seasons you’ll need to subscribe to the ITV/BBC streaming service, Britbox.

Where can I watch Friends?


For now, Friends is still available to stream on Netflix in the UK. Even those of us who know the entire series word-for-word, rewatching Friends is a source of great comfort. Friends has bounced from network to network over the years, appearing on terrestrial and satellite TV channels before making its way to streaming services.

Streaming rights in the US are a little more complicated, as while Friends originally aired on NBC who now have their own Peacock streaming service, it was produced by Warner Bros, owners of HBO. As such, Friends moved from Netflix to HBO Max. And had the reunion special gone ahead, it would have been streamed on HBO Max as well.

Where can I watch The Office (US)?


At the moment, you can watch The US Office on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

Even if you were a fan of the UK original series from Ricky Gervais, there’s no denying that the US Office far surpassed the UK original, and remains one of the most rewatched series in the world.

Like Friends, The Office first aired on NBC, and as such rights to the show have since returned to NBC in the US, and it was one of the headline shows when it first launched Peacock.

Where can I watch The Handmaid's Tale?
