The Nevers season 1
Joss Whedon’s first original series in more than a decade is this exciting looking sci-fi drama set in an alternate version of Victorian London. It follows a group of superpowered women, known as The Touched, who band together to fight back against both a sinister enemy who wants to destroy them.
The Nevers boasts a large ensemble cast and its first trailer suggests that the show is packed with the elements that made Whedon’s other hits so great. There’s an intriguing world to explore, plenty of interesting female characters and a fun, quirky tone.
Britannia season 3
Sky’s historical fantasy drama will return for a third season later this year continuing its brilliantly trippy, wild take on the Roman’s attempt to conquer Great Britain spearheaded by general Aulus Plautius (The Walking Dead’s David Morrissey).
Cait (Eleanor Worthington Cox) will continue to attempt to master her power as The Chosen One while druid leader Veran (Mackenzie Crook) journeys to the underworld. Ratched’s Sophie Okonedo is also set to join the cast as Aulus’s fearsome wife Hemple who demands to know why he hasn’t yet succeeded.
Hausen season 1
This incredibly creepy looking, stylish horror series from Sky Germany gives a refreshing update on the classic haunted house story. The action has been transported to a grimy, rundown apartment block which feeds off the suffering of its many tortured inhabitants.
After the tragic death of his mother, 16-year-old Juri (Tristan Göbel) and his father Jaschek (Charly Hübner) move to the building seeking a new start. When the latter begins to fall under its terrifying spell, Juri bands together with the other residents to banish the evil for good.
Gomorrah season 5
The violent, fantastically gripping Italian mob drama Gomorrah has been labelled by many critics as one of the best foreign language series of recent years. Following on from the revelations in the excellent bridge film The Immortal, its headed to its conclusion with a fifth and final outing.
The explosive events of last season left Genny (Salvatore Esposito) alone in a bunker hiding from both the Italian police and his many enemies. With a gang war in Naples inevitable, he discovers his only ally is the mysterious crime boss known as O' Maestrale.
The always excellent Olivia Colman is set to star in this darkly comic true crime drama which will explore the case of killer couple Susan and Christopher Edwards. The seemingly mild mannered pair murdered her elderly parents back in 1998 and buried them in the garden.
It’s not yet been confirmed who will play the role of Christopher but Will Sharpe, who helmed comedy-drama Flowers, will direct all four episodes. He replaced two time Academy Award winner Alexander Payne who dropped out of the project due to scheduling conflicts.
