Aaron Sorkin’s The West Wing has recently dropped on the streaming site. The critically-acclaimed US political drama follows the lives of staffers in the West Wing of the White House, under the administration of fictional democrat president Josiah Bartlet (shame he’s fictional, hey?).
The West Wing is often hailed as one of the best TV shows of all time, and the good news is all seven seasons are available to watch on All 4.
Has the election given you a taste of all things political? If you’re busily refreshing the BBC homepage every 5 minutes desperately waiting for the last remaining votes to come in, why not turn your attention to a political TV drama instead?

Or if you want something a bit closer to home, the UK has churned out some superb political dramas over the years. Take Peter Capaldi as Malcolm Tucker in the political satire show The Thick Of It, a foul-mouthed party spin doctor overseeing a bumbling cabinet minister in the fictional Department of Social Affairs and Citizenship.
Or more recently, Brexit: The Uncivil War has been captivating audiences. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Dominic Cummings who, before he became the prime minister’s special advisor, lead the Vote Leave campaign to convince British voters to leave the European Union. While some viewers were left divided, the docu-film achieved critical acclaim for its portrayal of one of the most poignant points in Britain’s political history.
Everybody, try and remain calm, but Riverdale season 5 finally has a release date
It’s like the guys at Netflix always know when we need cheering up. On the first day of lockdown 2.0, the streaming giant has finally announced a release date for season five of Riverdale and – we hope you’re sitting down for this one – it’s coming sooner than you think.
Filming was halted back in March due to the Coronavirus pandemic and fans of the show have been waiting for news on when filming will resume for months. While we don’t know too much about the storylines set to come in the next season, there will be some picking up to do from season 4 which was cut short due to the pandemic. Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has confirmed however that we’ll be seeing the much-anticipated prom episode in which the gang will graduate from Riverdale High. That is going to be one seriously epic prom.
GLAMOUR fave Lili Reinhart, who stars as Betty Cooper, also revealed a spoiler while on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: “We’re actually doing a seven-year time jump into the future so we’re not going to be teenagers anymore. I’m really psyched about it. I think it will be really nice to play an adult… We’re not just stuck in high school for seven seasons.”
To make up for the shortening of season 4, season 5 will also be longer than normal. Woo!
There’s no trailer for the upcoming season yet but we expect it to drop soon, as season 5 of Riverdale will be released on Netflix on 21st January, which really isn’t that far away. We can’t wait!
