This year has been devastating for fans of sapphic TV shows, as many of our favorite series featuring queer women characters were canceled too soon. Fortunately, the recent renewals of many of our favorite shows give us hope they will continue to thrive in the audiovisual landscape for years to come.
When "The Fallout" premiered at the South by Southwest film festival in 2021, it was an instant hit. Critics praised its portrayal of a school tragedy, using the aftermath of teen trauma to deal with the experience of grief, and viewers were mesmerized by the cast's powerful performances. HBO Max dropped the film today, and it's sure to be just as popular as it was when it premiered. "The Fallout" is both devastating and uplifting, and it's definitely a must-watch for anyone looking for a powerful wlw movie.
