Spring isn’t just a time for the return of warmer weather, it’s the season that marks the return of some of our favourite TV series. Here are four to check out on Rogers on Demand (Channel 100) and rogersanyplacetv.com this month.

Better Call Saul

Fans of Breaking Bad, listen up: the third season of this hit prequel to that hit show will feature Walter White’s future collaborator-turned-adversary Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) in his earlier days, along with rumoured guest spots from other characters linked to the Bad universe. Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) will also find himself tested, both personally and professionally, as a result of his Season Two confession.

Veep

Season Six of the wildly popular, award-winning – and unapologetically profane – political satire follows now-former-POTUS Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) as she struggles to figure out her next move after having lost her seat in the Oval Office. With her staff displaced, and with her own post-presidential direction unclear, expect Selina’s quest for purpose to be hilariously rocky.

Fargo

The hit anthology series is known for its all-star casts and Minnesota setting, and its third season is no exception. Ewan McGregor headlines in a dual role as successful real-estate magnate Emmit Stussy and his bitter, balding parole-officer brother, Ray, whose sibling rivalry leads to increasingly serious crimes. Carrie Coon, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jim Gaffigan and David Thewlis are among the high-profile co-stars.

New season premieres on Wednesday, April 19, on FX.

Hockey Wives

Just in time for playoff season, this guilty-pleasure series returns for more delicious off-the-ice drama. The third season will see the show jet overseas, as some players find themselves traded from the NHL to international teams – meaning the wives and girlfriends left behind (including Maripier Morin and Emilie Blum) will have the added challenge of figuring out how to manage long-distance relationships.

New season premieres on Wednesday, April 19, on W.
