A string of season premieres for some of the best TV shows currently on the air
The return of Westworld and The Handmaid’s Tale are just two great reasons to tune in this month. Here are some more.
King in the Wilderness
His civil-rights legacy is celebrated with a national U.S. holiday and his iconic message of non-violence continues to inspire equality movements around the world. So why was Martin Luther King so unpopular during the final three years of his life? On the eve of the 50th anniversary of King’s assassination, this one-off HBO film tackles the tragic answer – when King’s famous “dream” turned into a nightmare.
Premieres on April 2 on HBO Canada.
The weird and disturbing Legion is fast becoming the champion of all superhero series as we dive deeper into the mind of David Haller (Dan Stevens), whose apparent schizophrenia is merely a smokescreen. We haven’t even scratched the surface of the strange entities lurking inside David. Get ready for a baffling trip in Season Two.
Returns on April 3 on FX.
Start your engines and hold on tight for a hugely addictive 10-part thriller from master storyteller Stephen King, Big Little Lies creator David E Kelley and Game of Thrones director Jack Bender. Add the amazing Brendan Gleason into the mix, as a depressed detective creepily lured out of retirement by Penny Dreadful’s Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), and you’ve got a bone-chilling bonanza.
Premieres on April 12 on Super Channel.
National Geo’s Emmy®-nominated foray into scripted drama is a classy affair, and last year’s racy take on Albert Einstein was just the beginning of something very beautiful indeed. This year it’s Pablo Picasso’s turn in the hot seat – and with Antonio Banderas as the rule-breaking, womanising painter, that seat is very hot indeed.
Returns April 24 on National Geographic.
