Couple of Notes on Commenting…

If your asking about an air date show, please make sure it isn’t in the list already. Easiest way to do this is to use your browser’s ‘Find’ function (‘Ctrl & F’ on a PC, ‘cmd and F’ on a Mac).

Also, if you’re asking for a returning air date, it really helps me out if you know which channel it’s airing on currently to post that in the comment.

I know a lot of the TV shows, but the more info you can leave me, the easier it is for me to check. :)

  7. Bruce oin Scottsdale AZ says:

    Any insight into Hinterland’s supposed 2nd season (other than the one-time “between” episode)?
    Great site. Keep it up !

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      It’ll be the same as series 1, beginning in Wales on S4C, then the bilingual version on the BBC in the rest of the UK, followed by any international markets including Netflix for North America.

      It begins in Wales on 13th September

  8. Abigail says:

    Just seen an advert for new season of Gogglebox. It starts Friday 11th September on Channel 4. No time specified but its usually 9pm 😀

  9. gfunk says:

    Law and order season 16 starts 19th October x source universal website

  10. gfunk says:

    Chicago pd episode is linked to season 16 episode 20 according to imdb. Which I have checked to see if on universal channel and most recent episode is final one of season 15. Ill keep an eye out and report back when its on

    • willamae says:

      Thanks for that I will look out for your post.

    • Brenda G says:

      I’m a bit lost to understand your post! I follow Chicago PD on 5USA which is currently airing Season 2. I also watch Chicago Fire on SkyLiving presently on Season 3! Where are you getting Season 16, etc. Do you mean episodes & what shows are you referring to? Incidentally I look forward to news on Chicago Med.. Still no UK buyer/channel or news thereof??

      • Paul B says:

        Hi Brenda,

        The conclusion of the Nadia kidnap storyline from last weeks Chicago P.D. was season 16 episode 20 of Law and Order SVU.
        gfunk answered a question i had about it if you look further down the posts.
        Its one of those crossover storylines thats in Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and LAW And Order SVU

        • Andrew Andrew says:

          I don’t watch SVU so I’m more than happy to be corrected, but looking through the past dates on the EPG, season 16 is finished, with the aforementioned episode 20 having aired in May this year.

          In October we will get the next season, which is season 17. Yes, I’ve seen the Universal Channel which states season 16 in October (19th) but can’t help wondering if that’s either repeats or a mistake.

  11. Emma says:

    Any idea if and when Wicked City will be aired in the UK? It is due in October in the US. Thanks

  12. AKK says:

    If you look at the press pack you will find all the info for,all the channel 4 shows you have on geektown.

  13. AKK says:

    You, me and the apocalypse starts on 30 September

  14. kate says:

    when is masterchef Australia season 7 due to air in the uk please

  15. Alan ODonovan says:

    With regards to AMC on Sky. The HD version will appear in October as advised via the below link to people with the BT Sport HD pack.

  16. PB says:

    Does Syfy UK actually have Ash vs Evil Dead or is it just the trailer on their website?
    IF they do, and are showing it at Halloween then due to time differences it would show before Starz premiere it. Highly unlikely.

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      You are quite right, PB. I can’t remember who provided that information but it just doesn’t seem to be right. The trailer in question is indeed the US one.

      I’ve moved the entry back to the unknown section until we can get better information, and will endeavour to check entries in the comments more rigorously.

      Thanks very much for highlighting this

  17. Ferg says:

    I notice that you don’t have Kurt Sutter’s (Sons Of Anarchy) new show ‘The Bastard Executioner’ on the list above. I know its due to start in September but not sure on the exact date. Any chance you could add it to the list.

  18. gfunk says:

    You will have to wait for season 16 episode 20 of law and order svu which continues where Chicago p.d. Finished. Keep checking universal channel

  19. Paul B says:


    Last weeks episode of Chicago PD ended with the kidnapping of Nadia.
    This week seems to have skipped forward without showing what happened.
    Does anybody know if Channel 5 have missed an episode out.


    • Simon says:

      No, that was a cross over with Law and Order SVU, and that episode was shown on Universal a while ago. It’s really frustrating when they do crossover stories, because they’re shown on the same channel in the U S but not over here..,so we either see them out of sequence, or not at all!!!

  20. zohib says:

    does anyone know when orphan black season 3 is coning on

  21. AKK says:

    Lady Chatterys Lover is on BBC one on September 6th @9pm.

    Also I think you might have missed my comment regarding AMC picking up weeds ND Manhattan an also the ime fear the walking dead.

    And Duck Quacks starts on bank holiday Monday at 8pm.

  22. eloise says:

    Has there been any news of “Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll” being picked up over here? It’s american, and stars elizabeth gillies and elaine hendrix. It airs on FX in America.

  28. Julie says:

    is Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Season 3

  29. Oli says:

    Apologies if this has been asked does anyone know if the AMC Global channel will be available through the Sky Go app or will there be another app I could use?

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      As far as I understand it, it’s an exclusive arrangement with BT and Amazon, apparently with an extra bonus for Sky customers who take BT Sport (but not Virgin customers who take BT Sport). As for the Sky Go app, I don’t know but I don’t think so, unless it provides different content depending on your package, and certainly not if you don’t take BT Sports.

      As for another app – yes, the Amazon one. No other, as that would defeat the purpose of the “exclusive” arrangement.

      • Oli Miller says:

        Thanks Andrew. I’ve got the Sky Go & BT sport apps but no Sky Box so was unsure whether I could get access to the AMC channel through those 2- haven’t been able to find anything on the web yet to confirm one way or another. I guess it looks like I’ll have to wait for it to come out on Amazon Prime which I’ve got access to as well.

  30. Howard says:

    heya great site that i don’t thank enough

    anyway eye candy has been picked up by 5* and will premiere in september

  31. Amy-Joan says:

    Anyone know if we are getting The Whispers or Fresh off the Boat?

  32. Sallywoods says:

    Although it says exclusive to BT customers and Amazon Prime customers what’s the chances of Fear The Walking dead turning up on sky sooner rather than later

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Do you mean specifically a Sky channel? Or do you mean any channel available on satellite, that’s also available on Virgin, TalkTalk and/or Freeview?

      At any rate, it’s quite possible it’ll come to another channel in future, but as for “sooner rather than later” I’d say the chances are virtually nil.

  33. Caroline Desborough says:

    Hi, have you any idea if the Canadian show Played (5USA) will be getting another series?

  34. Mel says:

    Any idea when new moaning of life will start on Sky1? 😀

  35. Nick says:

    Ash vs Eval Dead is on SYFY UK in October on Hallween 31 October if link dont work its on there website/fb page

  36. Tamara says:

    When is empire season 2 set to start

  37. Paula says:

    Hi, Just to let you know that you have the wrong start date for Crossing Lines season 2, it should be September 15th not 5th.
    Great site by the way :)

  38. Moira says:

    Hi could you please help me find out when season 5 of switched at birth starts in the UK and what channel. Thanks in advance

  39. frasermc says:

    Unsure if already mentioned but The Trials of Jimmy Rose (3 part drama starring Ray Winstone and Amanda Redman) starts on ITV on Sunday 30th August – 9pm

  40. Lee says:

    Do you have any idea when The Big Bang Theory Season 9 is going to be shown on E4

  41. ant says:

    Will person of interest season 4 return to channel 5.

  42. Sheena F says:

    Any idea when NCIS season 11 episode 13 will appear on UK channel 5?
    It was interrupted for Big Brother but I can’t find any mention anywhere of
    NCIS returning.. Thanks.

  43. gary Ironside says:

    Slightly off topic, but in relation to the podcast ‘Pete’s Dragon’ is on channel 5 this afternoon Sunday 3.20. :-)

  44. jason fortune says:

    anybody know when hell on wheels is back on tcm?

  45. Katrine says:

    Can you tell me if Agents of SHIELD will becoming back on Channel 4?


  46. ricky says:

    I see Under the dome has been moved to late monday night now channel 5 are an utter joke they do not know how to handle shows

    • John says:

      Probably something to do with Celebrity Big Brother

    • k00lworld says:

      I agree. They decimated the last series of Person of Interest and NCIS New Orleans has been on a break for months. They should stick to shows with freaks and wierdos and leave the good programs to channels that can do them justice.

  47. Jane Justice says:

    Do you have any idea when alibi channel plan to screen Castle season eight in the UK?

    • Brenda G says:

      They are still showing season 7 Wednesdays @9pm with episode repeat Thursdays @8pm. It’s began in May so is not due to finish until 21/22October. It’s unlikely to air Season 8 till 2016!

      • Jane Justice says:

        Thanks I have been watching season 7 but I wondered if they would screen the new season a bit earlier next year rather than have to wait until June again as we did this year. The season had finished in the US before we got to see it.

  48. hannah says:

    Does anyone know if switched at birth will be shown in the UK? I love that show but can’t seem to find out if and when it’ll be shown here!

  49. Brenda G says:

    Whilst I am on a roll.. lol.. what chance is there of any TV channel picking up “TEEN WOLF” seasons 3, 4, 5 AND 6?
    It was dropped by SkyLiving after only 2seasons but it happily continues Stateside, Canada AND in other worldly places right up to an hotly anticipated Season 6! Would SyFy UK grab it at all?? Either SyFy or Watch aired Repeats of the first two seasons from time to time but there they stop.. No new seasons despite the success of this series elsewhere in the world (not just in US!) Please don’t suggest Netflix or iTunes.. As I mentioned in a previous post today (probably a few comments up/down from.this) my rural internet connection is just NOT suitable (despite being just an hour from Dublin!) There are people living in remote parts of the planet with super-fast connections & so multiple times better than where I live!
    I might consider the complete series on DVD when it ends if it came at a hope price but it is a “might”.. I’d be happier to see the series return with the previously unaired seasons. (UK/Ireland)

    • Brenda G says:

      Eek.. So much for predictive text!! The word “hope” in last paragraph above should read “good”!

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Same thing with Teen Wolf. Unlikely but not impossible. Of course it is continuing in America – it’s an American programme. And every other foreign market (including ours) will base their decisions on the numbers.

      Good / Hope? As in “Cape Of….”? ?

    • Helen says:

      Can you still buy it on Itunes? I think it was available at one point.

  50. Brenda G says:

    I am delighted to see (thanks to Geektown!!) that Universal are picking up the very smart series “WHITE COLLAR” starting with daily ‘repeats’ of Seasons 1,2 (& 3??) which was dropped by Alibi a couple of years ago. However I had been looking forward to seeing two other programmes which have been dropped from their TV channels (due to poor ratings!)
    First there is “GRACELAND” Season 3 which I’d hoped would return in Sept.. Season 2 ended on a right cliffhanger with one of the lead characters being shot at point blank range whilst recovering in a hospital bed by a ‘dirty cop’! Universal showed Seasons 1+2 and I kinda got sucked in. What chance is there of another regular TV channel (not Netflix, etc.. My broadband signal is only Mobile Edge so not suitable for these web options!) picking up this series??.. Anyone??

    Second is “SAVING HOPE” which I was following on Watch who have also chosen to drop the series (due to poor ratings) after only 2seasons. Again, with an unresolved cliffhanger (for me!) What chances of an alternative TV channel acquiring this programme for season 3 and beyond (if there IS a ‘beyond’!)

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Almost none, unless an extremely favourable deal is made later on. If internet connection is an issue, you might be better with the physical discs – that is certainly not a problem with Saving Hope, with both seasons available on DVD. Graceland however is trickier – it looks like it’s only on Region 1, with season 3 not yet released

      • Brenda G says:

        Thanks for the info, Andrew! Re DVD/Blu-Ray option there are some shows I am happy to see once and be done with the programmes but others I collect like GOT, True Blood, Vampire Diaries and other sci-fi series. I’m afraid, much as I will miss the two “dropped” series they would not grab me enough to want to have them in my ‘collection’!
        The rollout of broadband rurally here in Ireland is ‘hit n miss’ AND a long time coming (despite election promises down the years) and I only live an hour from the capital! As always any new advances are offered as multiple choices to city and big town dwellers unless you happen to be on a main route where these choices traverse! I made my “rural living choice” pre-compuer age and technology has left pockets of “barely there coverage” around the Island as may well be true in the UK also!?! Do you recall ‘dial-up internet connection’.. Sometimes it feels that way here!!

          Of course I remember dial-up and the awful screechy noise it made.

          I also remember a period now lovingly referred to as pre-Internet, when people didn’t spend all day reading details about what Americans were watching on TV, then complain about “spoilers”.

    Anyone with Irish terrestrial channels access historical drama TV series “Reign” Season 2 begins next Friday (V early morn Fri or late Thurs night.. However you consider post midnight Thurs!) Series 2 will air double episodes weekly on RTÉ2 starting at 12.50am Friday 28August. This follows a repeat of Season 1 which finished early this morning. I almost missed this as I thought the two episodes airing next week were a continuation of series 1!! Anyway, looking forward to season 2.. Thank goodness for option to record @such a bewitching hour! 😉

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Post midnight Thursday would be very early Thursday. For the avoidance of doubt, this airing of Reign is on Friday. However, with modern PVRs, recordings are usually made by selecting the programme by name, not time, from an EPG, and therefore mistakes should be limited.

      For those who mistakenly consider a new day only to begin when they wake up, I hope the Irish channels are showing something nice very early on Thursday morning too!

      • Brenda G says:

        Thanks Andrew, sorry for causing confusion.. In a giddy frame.of mind with sunshine appearing after one too many dull overcast days of “summer”! We don’t see enough of that heavenly body for my liking so when it does grace us with a presence.. No matter how brief my mental state can alter! 😉 Again apologies and you are correct it IS on Friday 28August. As regards Thursday that timeslot is “occupied” approx by another series yet to arrive your side of the “pond”.. The One and only season of “BATTLE CREEK” a comedy cop show!

    Any idea when Downton Abby season 5 and 6 is coming to Netflix uk.
    Any update on Pride and predacious season 2, or Selfridge, season 2.
    Sad case, I know but just started to watch these type of shows and am hooked. Regards, Lynn

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Netflix is less forthcoming with advanced information I’m afraid. However, it won’t have Downton Abbey series 6 before it has been broadcast, and that is due this autumn. As for Pride and Prejudice, which series have you been watching? It has been adapted for TV no less than eight times. As it is adapted from a novel, there’s unlikely to be a series 2 of any of them.

    Anyone who can find out the date for it, that would be great.

  58. Alan ODonovan says:

    Hi James,
    If you have Sky you should be able to view it. It will work the same way as BT sports does.

    • James says:

      Thank you for the reply.

      Sorry I should’ve said, I don’t have Sky, I rely (quite happily) on Freeview. I just wondered if, as a BT Broadband customer, including BT Sports Pack, they might include the new channel online. It would be nice, but it’s probably unlikely, I won’t lose any sleep!

  59. Akk says:

    dunno if anyone is watching it at the moment or not but last man on earth is being fast-tracked for season 2 and will air 24 hours after its american broadcast on dave at 9pm starting on the 28th of September

  69. AKK says:

    I am no sure this is an error on your webste but the x factor has gone missing from august. The show itself is on August 29th at 8pm on ITV. Any chance you can fix this.

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      It should be showing now. But remember, any programme that isn’t visible on this chronological list can be found via the oft-overlooked A-Z section

  70. Alan ODonovan says:

    Not sure if you know but AMC has launched on Sky Channel 192 ahead of its launch in Friday 28 August. You will need a BT Sport subscription to watch it.

    • Dave Dave says:

      Thanks Alan, we knew AMC was launching (as much discussed on Geektown Radio!), but didn’t know the channel number. :)

    • James says:

      Does anyone know if you will be able to watch AMC Global if you have BT Broadband?

      I have BT Broadband, and the BT Sports Pack, but I don’t have BT TV.

  71. David W says:

    Hi just like to say the site is fantastic.
    For your information ep 17 of Person of Interest is available on demand 5.
    Still can’t believe that they thought it was okay to just not broadcast that episode for “scheduling reasons” unbelievable.

  72. Ro Mack says:

    Sorry if it’s already been covered but could someone confirm the situation regards The Middle as Weds 19th listing on the Sky planner is S1E1

  73. neil says:

    Sky is no longer showing the final two episodes of the middle as listed for Wednesday on comedyextra

    • Daryl says:

      Hopefully they’ll turn up on the main Comedy Central channel sometime soon(ish).

      It’s a bit strange since it looks like their morning repeats of season 6 will reach episode 20 tomorrow before starting again at episode 1 on Wednesday.

      • Andrew Andrew says:

        You’ve lost me a bit. Sky was never due to show these episodes. They are on Comedy Central / Extra which isn’t a Sky channel. (I know Sky has umpteen channels, but this isn’t one of them) – it’s actually owned, indirectly, by the same group that owns Channel5).

        Nor is the channel exclusive to Sky’s satellite platform – it’s available several different ways, including Virgin and BT.

        At any rate, the EPG data is still showing two double bills on Comedy Xtra (not on any Sky channel). Firstly on the 19th at 6pm (episodes 21 & 22) and the 20th (episodes 23 & 24).

        • Daryl says:

          The Radio Times website is showing episodes 19 & 20 on the 19th and episodes 3 & 4 on the 20th (Comedy Central Extra 6pm).

          Episodes 21-24 do not show up on the Radio Times website.

          • Daryl says:

            Scratch that – looking at the wrong day.

            According to Radio Times website the Comedy Central Extra schedule is:
            Tuesday 18th 6pm – eps 19 & 20
            Wednesday 19th 6pm – eps 1 & 2
            Thursday 20th 6pm – eps 3 & 4

  82. danny says:

    Bit of a randy question guys hope that’s ok. I’ve recorded all of the second season of True Detective and just haven’t got round to watching it. I haven’t read any reviews of it in depth but any sort of headline I’ve seen regarding it is basically slating it, so now I’m just wondering if I should just ditch it – any opinions?

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Don’t read stuff about a programme you’ve yet to watch. Watch season 2. Anything I’ve heard about it suggests that it’s pretty good, just not as good as the first one.

      Personally I won’t be rushing to get it, but that’s because Colin Farrell is right up there with Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Alan Cumming amongst my least favourite actors.

    • Daryl says:

      I liked the first season a lot. So I was determined to stick with the second season to the end.

      I wouldn’t say it was bad. But it’s complicated and a bit of a mess. Personally, I now regret watching it.

      • Daryl says:

        I would suggest watching the first episode to see if it grabs you. If it doesn’t, I can advise that it doesn’t improve much as it goes along.

        • danny says:

          Seems like the most sensible solution! lol

          • gfunk says:

            I’ve watch true detective both seasons and ye season 2 is different to season 1 but still very good and I am not a Colin Farrell fan due to doing 3 of my favourite 80s movies. But I will say the first 4 episodes have lots of loose ends which dont start to tie up till last 4 episodes. I enjoyed it and think it was people just hating on Farrell and kitsch. Not true reviews. Farrell is very good in this but Harrison and mcconaughty are a very hard act to follow. You must watch till the end. But of you dont like it. Still give season 3 a chance.

    • danny says:

      Last year they kept it close to the US date and had the winter break like they but I guess they didn’t fancy that this year, ah well

      • Andrew Andrew says:

        Better this way. The big break is annoying and unnecessary here

        • danny says:

          Sorry Andrew, I’m afraid I prefer it the other way. Its just the spoilers issue that does it for me. Its just getting harder to avoid them nowadays – I got something spoiled by BBC teletext last season! And to be honest I don’t mind the Christmas break it gives my poor sky+ box a wee rest! :-)

          • Andrew Andrew says:

            Fair enough. Humans do prefer different things. I do find it easy to avoid spoilers though (even with big things like Game of Thrones which I watch a year later on Blu-Ray) and that’s despite doing this job and reading TV stuff all the time.

            But it’s moot with this one though – I don’t watch Greys!

  83. Melanie Rippon says:

    Hi, does anyone know when Masterchef Australia 2015 (season 7) will air in the UK? Usually on UKTV’s Watch channel September/October-ish, but I think the Australian air-date got pushed back this year, so could be later over here too?

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      I don’t think it’s been pushed back far. Season 7 began in May, just like season 6. So, I’d expect it back here again next month although it doesn’t have a confirmed date yet

  84. Daryl says:

    Ballers starts on Sky Atlantic on September 8th at 10pm

  85. Sarah says:

    Is Ballers starting on 20th, I’ve tried searching Sky for it to set up series link and it has something else on that night?

  86. Howard says:

    hope this is a reliable source but bob’s burgers and undateable have been acquired by comedy central

  87. AKk says:

    Can you add the xtra factor which returns same day as it’s parent on itv2. And Danny and the human zoo which is on bbc one this september.

    • Seth says:

      Danny and the Human Zoo will probably be Bank Holiday Monday. BBC Two comedy Boy Meets Girl starts Thursday 3rd September, and according to the media centre Cradle to Grave starts that week as well so I can see BBC Two pairing those together at 9pm.

  88. Abbie says:

    Is the Astronaut Wives Club going to be aired in the UK?

  89. Greg says:

    It Ripper Street returning to BBC1 next year for S4?

    Ch5 are saying that the current run of Under the Dome is the final series. Not surprising as its not got any better.

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      BBC hasn’t said,mouth most likely Ripper Street will be back next year, following its premiere on Amazon. As for Under The Dome, I don’t think it’s been cancelled yet although that seems quite likely.

    • Dave Dave says:

      Yep, CBS haven’t cancelled Under the Dome (yet), so Channel 5 are jumping the gun if they have said that (although I can’t seem to find where they said that if they did… only someone saying they said it!)

      Ripper Street has been renewed till season 5 on Amazon, so I suspect BBC will carry on airing it assuming the viewing figures are okay.

  90. MartyM says:

    As a postscript to the previous comments on the missing Episode 17 of Person of Interest, Channel 5 have partly redeemed themselves by making the episode available On Demand.

  91. AKK says:

    new air dates
    amazon- hand of god on September 4th, red oaks on October 9th, man in the high castle on November 20th and transparent season 2 on December 4th.
    alibi-crossing line season 2 on September 15th at 9pm.
    More4-Resistance on August 28th at 9pm.

  92. Daryl says:

    I think The Middle part 3 should be listed as 19th August rather than 19th June.

    • Andrew Andrew says:

      Quite right! It should be showing correctly now

      • Shaun says:

        I wonder why they have shunted the remaining episodes of the Middle to CC Extra? Hopefully being linked to C5 isn’t going to rub off on C Central and they’re going to drop it?

        • Daryl says:

          Daft to shunt it to a sister channel with just 4 eps remaining. I won’t be able to watch it live via Now TV, so I’m hoping it will appear on catch up.

          If not, I should be able to pay for each episode on Amazon.

  93. AKk says:

    The Beeb has confirmed the fourth series of children’s wolfblood will be in early 2016. Writer Debbie moon posted it.
