Monday, 12 April - The Flight Attendant Season 1
HBO's new limited series The Flight Attendant, which stars Kaley Cuoco of The Big Bang Theory, is one of the channel's newest shows. This darkly comedic thriller, based on Chris Bohjalian's novel of the same name, follows Cassie, a hard-drinking flight attendant who wakes up next to a dead man after a drunken date with him. In a panic, she flees the scene, but the FBI is hot on her tail, forcing her to try to clear her name.
Tuesday, 13 April - Season 1
This gripping ten-episode legal thriller is led by Emmy-winner Bryan Cranston. When his teenage son is involved in a tragic accident, a respected New Orleans judge and his son are drawn into a high-stakes game of lies, deception, and difficult choices once it is revealed that the victim was the son of a notorious crime boss. Golden Globe-nominee Michael Stuhlbarg co-stars as the feared crime boss, and Hope Davis plays his wife.
Wednesday, 14 April - Prodigal Son Season 2
In the second season of Prodigal Son, all of the main cast members return, including Tom Payne as criminal profiler Malcolm Bright and Michael Sheen as Martin Whitly, Malcolm's father and serial killer known as The Surgeon. Also returning are Bellamy Young and Halson Sage, who portrayed Malcolm's mother Jessica Whitly and sister Ainsely Whitly, respectively. Following a dramatic season one finale, season two begins with Bright's personal life in disarray as a result of his sister Ainsley's shocking actions.
Thursday, 15 April - Clarice Season 1
Clarice is a new psychological horror-crime series created by Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet, who have worked together on The Mummy (2017). It is based on Thomas Harris's best-selling novel The Silence of the Lambs and serves as a follow-up of the 1991 film adaptation. The series stars Pretty Little Liars' Rebecca Breeds as Clarice Starling, who returns to the field one year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs. Still troubled by the trauma of solving the notorious Buffalo Bill serial killer case, Claris is exposed to a string of new murders that will pull her into a new case that will tie her past to the present.
Friday, 16 April - This is Us Season 5
