This is a rhetorical question. There is nothing better. Check out the list of everything that’s coming to the service next month and let us know what you think!

NEW ORIGINAL SERIES

THE DEAD LANDS — Season Finale March 5 (all 8 episodes bingeable)

But the world Waka returns to is ravaged by a breach between Life and the Afterlife as the spirits of the newly dead now stalk the land and hunt the living.

Waka encounters a determined young woman, Mehe (Darneen Christian), who becomes both his protégé and moral compass. Together, they navigate tribal politics, the unsettled ghosts of Ancestors and other forces both natural and supernatural, on a quest to discover who “broke the world” and how to repair it—if it’s not too late. Also available on Shudder Canada and Shudder UK. An AMC Networks’ Shudder and TVNZ production.
