If you’re a huge fan of American TV series, you’ll definitely know that now is the time to gather your friends together for a TV series marathon as many shows are back on the programme list with a brand new season. But apart from catching up with our all-time favourites, network channels are rolling out more great shows to keep us occupied.
For the month of October, we’re anticipating a couple of exclusive shows making their debuts as well as new films we can’t wait to watch in the cinema! Here are eight entertainment happenings you need to watch out for before we welcome October.
1. Catherine The Great debuts On October 22
This is certainly a show not to be missed by history enthusiasts! Starring Academy-award winner Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke, this four-part drama is set against the politically tumultuous and sexually charged court of Russian empress Catherine the Great (Helen Mirren) who wielded supreme power throughout Russia for nearly half of the 18th century. The HBO/Sky production follows Catherine towards the end of her reign during her passionate affair with Grigory Potemkin ( Jason Clarke).
Debuting the same time as the U.S., the show will be airing its first episode exclusively on HBO GO and HBO on Tuesday, October 22, and encores on the same day at 10pm.
