How many episodes of Chernobyl are there? – HBO & Sky TV Show

How many episodes of the TV show Chernobyl will there be?

Fans of this highly-rated historical drama will probably be a little disappointed to learn that the number of episodes in the first season of Chernobyl is 5. But to be fair, the running time of those episodes is longer than the average television drama.

The six-part series began airing here in the UK on Sky Atlantic on Tuesday the 7th of May 2019, a day after it premiered in America on HBO, with the season finale set to broadcast in early June.

For those of you here in Britain who haven’t yet watched the show and want to see what all of the fuss is about, but don’t have a Sky subscription, your cheapest option would be to stream Chernobyl on-demand via Now TV. At the time of writing this, UK residents can take out an Entertainment Pass for £7.99 per month with the option to cancel at any time. For those of you new to Now TV, you can even take out a 7-day free trial.

A co-production between HBO and Sky, the series depicts the Chernobyl nuclear disaster that took place in Ukraine in April 1986. The drama was filmed in Lithuania and Ukraine with a cast list headed by actors Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgård, Paul Ritter, and Emily Watson.
