We’re heading into October, and that means the motherload of US tv shows are returning to UK tv screens for your viewing pleasure. For those of you that have Netflix, that means CW’s ‘Black Lightning‘ Season 2, ‘Riverdale‘ Season 3, ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Season 4, and ‘Dynasty‘ Season 2 are all back within days of their US air date.
‘Riverdale’ Season 3 kicks off with our beloved Archie (KJ Apa) in some serious hot water following his arrest last season. As the jury begins deliberations in his murder trial, Archie makes a surprising request about how he wants to spend his final days of summer.
Meanwhile, Betty (Lili Reinhart) is forced to deal with her problems head-on after a heated confrontation with Alice (Madchen Amick) and Polly (guest star Tiera Skovbye) brings up some dark secrets she’s kept hidden. Veronica (Camila Mendes) pleads with Hiram (Mark Consuelos) to step in and help Archie before a verdict is announced. Finally, Jughead (Cole Sprouse) leads the Serpents against the Ghoulies latest attack.
‘Riverdale‘ Season 3 comes to Netflix UK weekly from Thursday, 11th October 2018.
‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ returns for its 4th and final season as Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) starts to deal with the repercussions of the very long string of decisions – good, bad and alarmingly questionable – that she’s made since she took flight from New York City and landed in West Covina three seasons ago.
This year Rebecca is in some ways like a baby chick that’s about to tumble out of the nest and in other ways, she’s that friend who is searching for enlightenment and kinda can’t stop yammering about it. As always, Rebecca’s actions have had unintended consequences for her West Covina friends…
‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Season 4 comes to Netflix UK weekly from Saturday, 13th October 2018.
After the Season 1 shocking finale and fatal fire, the Carrington family will rise from the ashes to redefine themselves after a major personal loss, as well as the sale of their family’s company. Determined to prove herself the saviour of their empire, the cunning and charismatic Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) will attempt to rebrand her family’s dynasty, but a twenty-five year old in charge of liquid billions just might turn out to be a disastrous combination. Almost as disastrous as Fallon’s romances… She finds herself falling in love with a man whose family is wealthier and crazier than her own and of whom Blake (Grant Show) does not approve. Nor does Alexis (Nicollette Sheridan), who will find new ways to meddle in her daughter’s life as only a mother can.
Meanwhile, the rivalry between the Colbys and Carringtons heats up, and the families embark on Atlanta’s most outrageous pissing contest, causing new Colbys to come out of the woodwork, namely Blake’s stepsister, the iconic Dominique Deveraux, and the arrival of Anders’ (Alan Dale) daughter threatens to shake things up when she unpacks her trunk-load of secrets about the Carrington family. Despite all of these rocky relationships, and even more surprise guests slated to rear their heads in Season 2, the Carringtons will once again prove that blood is thicker than oil, and that there’s nothing like the diamond-encrusted ties that bind.
‘Dynasty‘ Season 2 comes to Netflix UK weekly from Saturday, 13th October 2018.
‘Black Lightning’ is back as Cress Williams returns for a 2nd Season as teacher and superhero, Jefferson Pierce. Whilst Jefferson and his family may have survived Tobias’s (Marvin Jones III) attack, but they’re not out of the woods yet. Concerned for the safety of Garfield’s students, the board considers a motion to shut down the school, forcing Jefferson to go to Napier Frank (guest star Robert Townsend) to sway the vote.
Meanwhile, Jennifer (China Anne McClain) struggles with her powers and her actions have unforeseen repercussions, and Anissa (Nafessa Williams) finds a new way to give back to Freeland. Lastly, Lynn (Christine Adams) continues her quest much to the dismay of Agent Odell (guest star Bill Duke).
