HBO’s Chernobyl is based on one of the world’s worst man-made disasters due to an explosion in a nuclear power plant. The show is the current talk of the town. The series has become one of the most viewed and liked shows. It has even surpassed shows such as Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad to top IMDb’s all-time TV rankings. The five-episode miniseries which is written by Craig Mazin and directed Johan Renck has a whopping 9.6 rating out of 10, which is based on one lakh plus viewers. Apart from the masses, the non-fictional mini-series was widely appreciated by the critics as well.

Those who have watched the show may have realized that many Game of Thrones actors have featured in Chernobyl. If you are thinking that you have watched Roose Bolton and Maester Lewin earlier, then you are indeed right as they and many other actors were part of GoT.

Speaking of the show, Chernobyl is the retelling of the explosion at the nuclear power plant in Ukraine, which took place on April 26, 1986. It also shed light on the gigantic effects and aftermath. The explosion occurred due to the release of a highly toxic radioactive material across Belarus, Russia and Ukraine, Scandinavia and Western Europe. The catastrophe also led to many deaths over the years after the explosion.
