While the days – and indeed our lives – may seem in a loop during lockdown, science fiction drama series Tales From The Loop provides a welcome distraction by exploring a world even stranger than our own.
Based on the popular paintings by Simon Stålenhag, this mind-bending series follows townspeople who live above the mysterious Loop – a machine built to solve the mysteries of the universe…
So for slow, thoughtful science fiction to pass these long days, why not delve into the loop.

Starring Rebecca Hall (The Prestige), Daniel Zolghadri (Eighth Grade) and Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes), the series explores an underground facility known as The Loop, which makes science fiction a reality for a small town. As it was based on an art book rather than a written novel, expect to see Stålenhag’s paintings beautifully recreated as live-action shots in the show.
