Everyone's talking about Game of Thrones S8 this month - but never fear, there is plenty else on to fill the days between episodes.


Game of Thrones season 8

One of the biggest shows in history concludes with six bumper episodes and an ending no one will see coming. In the eighth season of the award-winning fantasy series, disparate characters unite to fight a common enemy. Seasons 1 to 7 are also available to binge-watch on Showmax, and there will be new episodes every week from April 15 at 10pm.


Die Spreeus

This supernatural drama series follows two detectives as they investigate crimes with a spooky twist. It's the scariest, edgiest Afrikaans show we've seen for a while, and it's going to have the whole of SA hooked. Weekly episodes on Tuesdays, express from kykNET.


Billions season 4

Revenge is the central theme this season, and it even brings enemies Bobby Axelrod and Chuck Rhoades together. Together with Wendy Rhoades, the trio has a sinister plan to take out those who’ve got in their way. New episodes arrive at the same time as the DStv broadcast, and seasons 1 to 3 are ready to watch if you want to catch up. New episodes come to Showmax every week from April 10 at 9pm.


Future Man S2

Leave it to a gaming janitor to save the world and, well, he fails. Josh is back at it, this time in the year 2162. He and his misfit team try to save humanity from being exiled to Mars - if they can survive all the time travel. Season 1 is also on Showmax, so you can stream from the beginning. First on Showmax.

No Activity seasons 1 and 2

Will Ferrell executive produces and stars in this hilarious cop series. Detectives Cullen and Tolbeck spend a lot of time on a very uneventful stake-out. The lack of action allows for some of the funniest conversations on TV. First on Showmax.


Rig 45

A damage regulator at an oil company is sent to investigate a fatality at an oil rig when it’s hit by a hurricane that cuts all communication to the mainland. She soon begins to suspect the death was not an accident and realises she'll have to find the killer among them. A tense thriller. First on Showmax.


A Very English Scandal

Hugh Grant portrays the real-life Jeremy Thorpe, who had tongues wagging in the 1970s. He was a Liberal member of parliament engaged in a secret affair with a man at a time when homosexuality was illegal. Ben Whishaw won a Golden Globe and TV Critics’ Award for his role as Thorpe’s lover. The critically acclaimed movie is based on the book, A Very English Scandal.


Quantico seasons 1 and 2

Local lass Pearl Thusi shares the screen with Priyanka Chopra in this crime thriller. Priyanka plays Alex Parrish, an FBI recruit training at the Quantico base who’s later suspected of being a sleeper terrorist.


HBO’s The Shop

Luther season 5 

Idris Elba reprises his Golden Globe-winning role as the titular character John Luther. The troubled detective works hard to solve grisly murders while dealing with his own demons. Speaking of which, Alice is back from the dead … seasons 1 to 4 are also available on Showmax.
