Lots Of New & Returning Shows Coming To Sky & NOW TV In March 2020
It seems the influx of new and returning tv shows is not going to slow down when we head into Spring, as Sky has announced a string of content which will be dropping in March 2020 on various Sky channel and NOW TV. We don’t have exact dates for these shows yet, and, as always, these are advanced details, so may shift, but here is a rundown of what to expect soon on your Sky/NOW TV box.
Brand New Series
Breeders – Sky One
It’s the classic parental paradox – it is possible, in the very same moment, to love your child to the horizon of the universe, yet still be angry enough to want to send them there. Emmy and BAFTA award winner Martin Freeman stars as Paul who alongside his wife Ally, played by Daisy Haggard, navigates the ever-evolving definition of parenting. Paul is a caring father, but as he struggles with his work-life balance it seems it’s Ally is the one holding it all together, and he is left feeling like he’s not quite the man he thought he was.
Hitmen – Sky One
Mel and Sue go from Chelsea buns to hired guns in their first scripted television comedy together. The duo play best friends Fran and Jamie, two misfits just trying to make an honest living, which happens to involve contract killing. And they’re not even especially good at it. Working out of their scruffy van, the hapless pair stumble from mark to mark, with each hit inevitably complicated by their bickering, oddball antics and gross incompetence. John Wick they ain’t.
Westworld, Season 3 – Sky Atlantic – Monday, 16th March 2020 at 2am
The critically-acclaimed drama, diving deeply and darkly into the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin returns… and the inmates have escaped the asylum. Season three sees Aaron Paul and Vincent Cassel join the cast as the critical event that marked the finale of the last season threatens to consume the outside world. Could it be that Westworld’s violent delights become humanity’s end?
Blue Bloods, Season 10 – Sky Witness
Sit back down at the table for the latest season of the long-running and much-loved US cop drama, which picks up with newlyweds Jamie and Eddie attempting to balance the rocky terrain of their work and personal lives. Also, Danny and Baez grapple with a murder investigation brought to their attention by a medium who previously helped them solve a case.
Kidding, Season 2 – Sky Comedy (note channel change)
Jim Carrey reprises his role as children’s TV entertainer and national treasure Mr Pickles (aka Jeff) in the second season of the touching dramedy about a kind person living in an unkind world. As Jeff continues to grapple with the emotional highs and lows that come through his grieving process, he looks for a way to connect with his young audience, launching a new series of smart (but somewhat unnerving) Mr Pickles dolls. Also dropping by this season will be pop megastar Ariane Grande in a guest role.
Bulletproof, Season 2 – Sky One
Ready for a second hit of edge-of-your-seat police pursuits, brotherly banter, and a rollercoaster ride of emotions? Look no further, as the Sky original drama ‘Bulletproof’ returns for its second series. Noel Clark and Ashley Walters are back as cop duo Bishop and Pike, who are heading undercover to infiltrate an international crime empire. Their chase for justice will take them from the streets of London to Amsterdam and Cyprus, where they will have to risk everything, including their police badges, to succeed.
Babylon Berlin, Season 3 – Sky Atlantic
Based on the bestselling detective novels of Volker Kutscher and arguably the most lavishly-produced non-English language television production ever, ‘Babylon Berlin’ returns for its third chapter in the Weimer-era drama. Picking back up in 1929, the Nazi Party’s rise to power has begun, as they begin to exploit the desperation caused by the poverty and unemployment in the city, and as the young republic begins to crumble, Berlin indulges in a frenzy of drugs, dancing and cabaret. It’s here that Chief Inspector Gereon Rath and his protégée Charlotte Ritter investigate a new case – the murder of a silent screen actress.
If all that isn’t enough, Sky Crime has a couple of new highlights, with ‘The Case of Martha Moxley’, which follows the brutal murder of a 15-year old girl in the exclusive community of Greenwich, Connecticut. Following her death, the investigation was stalled for 23 years before an individual was arrested and pulled into the limelight; And ‘The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway’ which follows the 2005 disappearance an 18-year-old girl who vanished while on a high school graduation trip to Aruba.
Over on the movies side, Sky Cinema has the tv premieres of ‘Rocketman’, ‘The Lion King’, ‘Brightburn’, ‘The Secret Life of Pets 2’, and ‘Frozen II’ is coming to the Sky Store.
All this will be coming to various Sky channels and NOW TV in March 2020.
