The Pentaverate is a Netflix original comedy series produced by Mike Myers that will premiere in 2019. It is a sequel to Myers' romantic black comedy So I Married an Axe Murderer, which was released in 1993. The first episode of the six-episode season will air on May 5, 2022, and the series will premiere on May 5, 2022.
A group of five men has been striving to influence global events for the greater good since the Black Plague struck in 1347. It is an unusual Canadian journalist who finds himself in the heart of an international operation to disclose the truth and, as a result of this, preserve humanity.
One of Mike Myers' most ambitious projects in years, The Pentaverate, a new comedy miniseries that will air on Netflix, will see him return to the screen. He hasn't participated in a TV series (streamed or otherwise) since his tenure on Saturday Night Live, which he established and will also appear in several parts in the new series.
As detailed in the trailer for The Pentaverate, which you can see below, the Pentaverate is a hidden society that goes back to the Black Plague and has been infiltrating and manipulating the path of human history ever since (clearly inspired by the Illuminati conspiracy theory). It will be up to the hero played by Mike Myers to bring them to justice.
The following is the official plot summary for The Pentaverate:
“It's possible that, since the Black Plague in 1347, a secret organization of five men has been working to influence world events for the betterment of all mankind. One unusual Canadian journalist finds himself engaged in a mission to unearth the truth and, in the process, rescue the planet, as the first episode of this new series airs. Always keep in mind that the Pentaverate must never be uncovered!”
