It’s already the last week of May, and time to wrap up another month of content on the streaming service trifecta that is Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video. These streamers are ending the month on a high note with some pretty great new arrivals to look forward to.
Possibly one of the most exciting newcomers on Netflix this week is the original documentary Nail Bomber: Manhunt – the story of how one man held London to ransom for 13 days in 1999. The doc is obviously based on true events and retells the wild story you may have forgotten with interviews and more on how ordinary people helped bring the bomber to justice.
The fifth and final season of Freeform’s The Bold Type makes its premiere on Hulu May 27, so there are only a few more days of waiting to see what happens to Jane, Sutton, Kat, and the rest of the Scarlet magazine team.
Amazon Prime Video‘s list of arrivals this week is small but mighty, as the streamer premieres its original series Panic. It’s about a small town where graduating seniors host a real-life Fear Factor-style competition every year, winner takes all. But this year the stakes are even higher, the winnings pot is bigger than ever, and it’s the only shot at getting out of their current circumstance and a chance at a better life. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post and watch it right away because it looks like something we could easily get hooked on.
