It is no surprise that this thrilling show found itself on readers must watch list. The tale follows a group of school children who discover an alternative world called the Upside Down. The series which is set in 1984 is due to be back on our screen on July 4 2019. To refresh your memory season two finished with Eleven finally being reunited with Mike, Dustin and Lucas. We then saw the gross looking Demodogs, the death of Bob, the burning of the pumpkin patch, and Eleven closing the gate to the otherworld. But will that be enough to fix things and save them from the crooked Hawkins lab?
With season four ending with a bang and the Shelby family more powerful than ever remote control hoggers will be desperate to see what is in store for everyone’s favourite criminals. The show finale finished with the Shelby clang defeating their nemesis Vicente Changretta in a violent fight and not to forget with our main man Tommy Shelby becoming the Labour MP for Birmingham South. An exact return date is still pending so keep your eyes peeled.
The next sequel of one of the most suspenseful shows on Netflix will return in 2019. Season five is expected to have a mix of Black Mirror’s trademark nihilistic tone but also have some slightly lighter episodes. It is thought that American singer Miley Cyrus will feature in some of the new episodes.
Line of Duty
The impressive Unit AC-12 are set to be back on our screens around April time to expose some more corrupt members of the police force. Star Martin Compston who plays DS Steve Arnott, has described the script for series five as immense. Are you able to crack the case before AC-12 does? Last season we were hooked on the jaw-dropping plot involving Roz Huntley who captured a suspected serial killer which resulted in death. The tale follows her to see how she covers up what happened that night. The twists and the turns keep you on the edge of your seat.
Games of Thrones
Get your tissues at the ready as one of the most talked about TV series will come to an end in 2019. Game of Thrones will release its eighth season on April 14. Each episode is believed to have cost more than $15 million to create so it is safe to say it is going to be epic. The plot of the last series has been kept quite hush-hush so fans will just gave to wait until April.
