Just like us, if you too are done binge-watching Queen Charlotte and are back to square one–where you’re in a major state of conflict about what to watch next–we (as always) are here to save you the trouble. From teen romance, inspiring wildlife documentaries to action comedies, here are exciting new shows and films to watch in the second half of May.
1. XO Kitty
Following the success of To All The Boys trilogy comes a new spin-off, based on the much-loved character from the franchise–the youngest Covey sister, Kitty. The self-proclaimed matchmaker knows when a relationship is going to work out; she isn’t wrong though. We saw how it worked out with Lara Jean and Peter despite the ups and downs. In the upcoming series, the story revolves around how Kitty thinks she knows everything about love. But after moving half way across the world to reunite with her long-distance boyfriend, she realises that relationships are more complicated than it seems (quite relatable). As fans of rom-coms, we’re ready to get on board Kitty’s journey of love and see how it unfolds.

4. Wild Life
This upcoming documentary is not only ideal for wildlife and nature enthusiasts but also for those who are seeking inspiration. “From Oscar-winning filmmakers Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, WILD LIFE follows conservationist Kris Tompkins on an epic, decades-spanning love story as wild as the landscapes she dedicated her life to protecting. After falling in love in mid-life, Kris and the outdoorsman and entrepreneur Doug Tompkins left behind the world of the massively successful outdoor brands they’d helped pioneer — Patagonia, The North Face, and Esprit — and turned their attention to a visionary effort to create National Parks throughout Chile and Argentina. WILD LIFE chronicles the highs and lows of their journey to effect the largest private land donation in history.”
