Apple TV+ has another month full of documentaries and new television shows arriving in May 2022. It seems like the OTT has kept a pause on movie releases for now. But anyway, still, it’s a treat with some big names appearing throughout the month. With documentaries telling the stories, one of the biggest cons to the time dinosaurs were ruling the planet. Period dramas and thrillers also make their presence felt throughout May.
Taking a look at the same, here we are breaking down everything coming to Apple TV+ in the month of May 2022. From shows such as The Essex Serpent, which might end up being the highlight of the month as it stars Claire Danes and Tom Hiddleston, to bilingual shows such as Now and Then, here is what we got.
The Big Conn – May 5
The Big Conn is a four-part documentary telling the story of one of the biggest scams in American History. It follows Eric Conn, who defrauded the US taxpayers of more than 550 million dollars. Considered to be one of the biggest lawyers in Appalachia, Eric Conn was a star in the town.
Everything about Conn was too much to believe, but everything happened. It tells how he got filthy rich in the poorest part of the United States and all the investigations that went down while hunting him. The show will release along with a podcast that will feature more interviews and behind the scene details.
Tehran Season 2 – May 6
Tehran originally followed Mossad agent Tamar who infiltrated the nuclear facility in Iran in order to stop them from nuclear warheads. The coming season 2 of Tehran continues Tamar’s mission despite failing at her initial assignment as she lays lows in Iran as she reflects on her heritage and, at the same time, takes orders from Mossad taking risks to protect the interests of Israel.
From The Official Trailer Of Tehran Season 2, we may see Tamar receiving a bigger mission, and pulling it off may result in Mossad helping her to escape the country. The mission might get complicated as the trailer sees Milad wanting to opt out of it while Tamar intends to finish it, thus causing a conflict. On top of that, the failure of this mission might end up exposing the entire network of Mossad.
Starring Niv Sultan in the lead as Tamar Rabinyan, the show also marks the return of Shaun Toub as Faraz Kamali, Shervin Alenabi as Milad, Arash Marandi as Ali, and Shila Ommi as Naahid.
