If you’re someone who likes to switch your binge-watching between dating shows and, at the other end of the spectrum, drama-filled apocalyptic thrillers, then we’ve got just the TV show for you.
Soulmates – penned by Stranger Things and Black Mirror writer Will Bridges – landed on Amazon Prime Video this week and we predict it’s going to be your next obsession.
Here’s the lowdown…
What’s Soulmates about?
Soulmates takes place in the not so distant future and explores the impact of science on our love lives. You thought dating apps were complicated, just wait till you watch this.
The official plot synopsis reads: “Soulmates is set 15 years into the future, when science has made a discovery that changes the lives of everyone on the planet – a test that unequivocally tells you who your soulmate is.
“Each of the six episodes will feature a different cast and explore an entirely new story around discovering (or opting not to discover) the results of this new test and the impact of those results on a myriad of relationships.”
So, much like Black Mirror, each episode will differ from the last and focus on an entirely different cast and story.
Yep, you’re going to be hooked.
