The HBO series Years & Years kicked off in June and is now roughly halfway through its six-episode series run.
Overall, the series depicts the very near feature (the next 15 years) of how technology, culture, and politics will evolve in the UK among a grew of family and friends. From Internet of Things innovations, to delivery drones, to sub-dermal sensor implants on the road to transhumanism, to augmented reality contact lenses, the series is a convincing take on what life might be like in the next couple of decades.
Russell T Davies (who has also produced Doctor Who) created the series which stars Emma Thompson (Men in Black, Harry Potter) leading an ensemble cast.
The BBC recently posted a full scene from the series to give viewers an idea of what it’s like.
HBO describes the series: Years & Years is an epic saga that takes an ordinary family and catapults them through the next 15 years. As society changes, faster than ever, the Lyons will experience everything we hope for in the future, and everything we fear. They’ll fall in and out of love, and grow old, fall apart and come back together, while constantly looking forward.
