These are the five best new TV shows to stream right now.

Fallout (Prime Video)

Even if you haven’t played the video game this new series is based on, this is still a crazy enjoyable new drama show to binge on Prime Video. The story is set in a future, post-apocalyptic Los Angeles which suffered nuclear decimation over 200 years ago. Many citizens now live underground in “vaults” to protect themselves from radiation, mutants, and raiders. But they also think that they are setting things up for a better world when they decide to come up to the surface one day. Little do they know of the current “real” world going on outside. Starring Walton Goggins as a former Hollywood star turned mutant and Ella Purnell as Lucy (a young vault dweller), this eight-episode series will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Based on the late Rebecca Godfrey’s true crime book of the same name, this new Hulu miniseries stars Riley Keough (Daisy Jones & the Six) as the young Canadian writer. When New York-dweller Godfrey returns to her hometown in 1997, she sets out to write a book about the girls of Victoria.

Based on the creator and star of the show Richard Gadd’s actual life, Baby Reindeer follows a comedian as he becomes stalked by a woman with a dark past. The seven-episode series gets increasingly heavy throughout as his relationship with the stalker becomes twisted (and more dangerous) and forces him to eventually confront his past trauma.

Ripley TV Shows

Ripley (Netflix)

All episodes are now streaming

Patricia Highsmith’s 1944 psychological thriller, The Talented Mr. Ripley, has been adapted several times — most notably for the 1999 film starring Matt Damon, Jude Law, and Gwyneth Paltrow. Now, it’s getting the small screen treatment as a Netflix miniseries starring Andrew Scott as Tom Ripley, Dakota Fanning, and Johnny Flynn. It follows a grifter, Ripley, who lives in New York during the ’60s and is hired by a wealthy man to travel to Italy to bring his son home. Similar to the recent film Saltburn‘s plot (which drew inspiration from the story), Ripley becomes obsessed with the man.
