All the TV series premiering in May

From the Danish dystopian thriller 'The Rain' to... more dystopian fare, like 'Fahrenheit 451.'

What are the TV premiere dates May 2018? The month of May appears to be a sort of digital graveyard, as far as new series premiering. Many shows are wrapping up for the summer, while others — like New Girl and The Middle — are shuttering for good. Other than that we’ve got a few promising series premiering: Starz’s Vida sees two estranged Mexican-American sisters returning to their old neighborhood in East Los Angeles in the wake of their mother’s death; Netflix’s The Rain takes typical dystopian fare and brings natural disaster and teenaged Danes together in a battle for survival. Another Starz effort, Sweetbitter, tries its best to wring some drama out of trailing for a restaurant (but if you’ve ever trailed at at restaurant, you know it’s not very interesting). Plenty to choose from to love and to hate.
