Game of Thrones season 8

Game of Thrones returns to our screens on 15 April 2019 at 22:00, in the same time slot as M-Net. The eights season will be the final instalment in the fantasy drama series.

Season eight of Game of Thrones will finaly reveal who gets to sit on the pointy iron throne. The series is based on George R. R. Martin’s A Song Of Fire and Ice series of medieval fantasies about the power struggles among the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.

Future Man season 2

First and only on Showmax. The first episode of season two aired on 1 April. Josh Futterman – a janitor by day, gamer by night – is recruited by mysterious time travellers who are out to prevent the extinction of humanity.

Season 2 picks up in 2162. Josh, Wolf, and Tiger learn that their Season 1 mission to stop the cure from getting out didn’t work. In this timeline, Stu Camillo is now in power, having created the cure, and has launched a plan to relocate humanity to Mars.

An organisation called The Pointed Circle needs Josh’s help to take Stu down — but can we really be sure who the good guys are? Josh Futterman is portrayed by four-time Teen Choice winner Josh Hutcherson from The Hunger Games franchise.

Luther season 5

The first episode of season five aired on 1 April. A new spate of nightmarish murders once again forces detective John Luther to face the depths of human depravity on the streets of London.

While the monstrous and seemingly indiscriminate killings become ever more audacious and public, Luther and new recruit D.S. Catherine Halliday are confounded by a complex tangle of leads and misdirection that seems designed to protect an untouchable corruption.

Billions season 4

Golden Globe winner Damian Lewis returns as Bobby Axelrod. The show also features Oscar nominee Paul Giamatti as Chuck Rhoades.

Axelrod and Chuck Rhoades team up with Wendy Rhoades to facilitate the eradication of all their rivals. The first episode of season four aired on 1 April.
