The Tribe is a post-apocalyptic drama TV series that takes place in the near future after a viral outbreak has wiped out all adults, leaving behind children and teenagers to fend for themselves. The show follows the lives of a group of kids who have created their own societies and tribes to survive in this new world.

The main character of the show is a young girl named Amber (played by Michelle Ang), who becomes the leader of the Mall Rats tribe. Along with her friends, including the tough but kind-hearted Trudy (Antonia Prebble), the street-smart and fast-talking Ebony (Meryl Cassie), and the rebellious Jack (Tom Hern), Amber must navigate through the violent and dangerous world of the post-apocalyptic society.

Each tribe has its own unique set of rules and beliefs, and conflicts arise between them as they struggle for resources and power. The Chosen, a religious cult led by the mysterious and charismatic Zoot (Nick Miller), seeks to control all the tribes and impose their own strict beliefs.

As the kids deal with everyday challenges like finding food and water, they also face more serious issues like disease outbreaks and power struggles. The show explores deep themes of trust, survival, and morality, as the characters are forced to make tough decisions that will determine their fates.

Throughout the series, we see characters grow and change, as they face heartbreak and loss, betrayal and redemption. They form friendships, fall in love, break apart, and come back together again, all while trying to survive in this dangerous world.

One of the strengths of the show is the diverse cast of characters, who come from all different backgrounds and cultures. There's the computer genius and inventor Ved (Michael Wesley-Smith), the athletic and loyal Lex (Caleb Ross), the tough and independent Salene (Victoria Spence), and the artistic and fiery Ellie (Vanessa Stacey), among many others.

The Tribe also features fantastic costumes and makeup, as each tribe has its own distinct look and style. The soundtrack, which features a mix of electronic music and tribal beats, adds to the show's futuristic and otherworldly feel.

Overall, The Tribe is an exciting and engaging drama that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats. It's a story about survival and resilience, but also about the power of friendship and the human spirit. With a talented cast of young actors and an inventive and thought-provoking plot, The Tribe is a must-see show for fans of post-apocalyptic fiction.

The Tribe is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (265 episodes). The series first aired on April 23, 1999.
