The new series picks up after a financial scam destroys the reputation of young lawyer Maia Rindell and wipes out her mentor and godmother Diane Lockhart’s savings. When the two legal ladies are forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join forces with Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago’s pre-eminent law firms where they find some familiar faces and old problems. The Good Fight stars Christine Baranski , Cush Jumbo, Rose Leslie, Delroy Lindo, Erica Tazel, Sarah Steele, Justin Bartha, Paul Guilfoyle and Bernadette Peters.

Veep at 21:30

The sixth season of the acclaimed comedy Veep continues to take a sharp, satirical look at the insular world of politics by following the day-to-day existence of former VP and onetime President, Selina Meyer. One year after the events of season 5, the new season sees Selina attempting to secure her legacy, after she finds herself out of public office for the first time in years. In a true parody of American politics, things couldn’t be more difficult for her as she tries to find her place in the world. Veep’s ensemble cast includes Tony Hale; Anna Chlumsky; Matt Walsh; Reid Scott; Timothy C. Simons; Sufe Bradshaw; Kevin Dunn; Gary Cole and Sam Richardson as new staff member Richard. Additional guests include Sarah Sutherland, Clea DuVall, Margaret Colin, Amy Brenneman, Paul Scheer and Stephen Fry.

American Gods at 22:00

Make sure the kids are safely tucked in bed, viewers who aren’t afraid can tune into the edgy, provocative, risqué series. 

Loosely based on the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s fantasy novel, the double-bill of American Gods is definitely not suited for sensitive viewers. It has been tagged with a high age restriction (R18VSNL) as it contains mature, graphic subject matter of a sexual, violent and religiously themed nature.

The surreal drama in the vein of some of our other fantasy favourites follows an ex-con named Shadow Moon, whose long-term spell in prison comes to an end after his wife dies. Now an aimless wanderer, Shadow has an encounter with a mysterious man named Mr. Wednesday and soon finds himself being hired as his bodyguard. It’s a gig that takes him into a hidden world of old gods and new gods, of curious magic and grand plans with dark consequences.

The series stars: Ricky Whittle, Emily Browning, Crispin Glover, Bruce Langley, Yetide Badaki, Pablo Schreiber and Ian McShane.
