From classic movies to compulsive new series, there’s plenty to watch on Foxtel Now* in April.
The full list is below but we’re especially excited about these six highlights.
Friday Night Lights S1-5 (April 1): Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose. And Friday Night Lights fans waiting for their beloved series to return to streaming will be winning this month. They might lose some sleep though, unable to tear themselves away from Coach and Mrs. Coach.
Black Narcissus (April 5): Based on the same Rumer Godden novel the 1947 movie is based on, it’s the story of a group of nuns struggling to maintain their piousness at their convent in the Himalayas. It stars Gemma Arterton, Jim Broadbent, Aisling Franciosi and Diana Rigg in her final role.
The Nevers (April 12): Starring Laura Donnelly, Olivia Williams, James Norton and Ann Skelly, The Nevers is a sci-fi drama set in Victorian England. A mysterious phenomena has imbued a group of women with supernatural abilities that could change the world.
Wahl Street (April 15): In case Entourage’s 96 episodes and one movie wasn’t enough, Mark Wahlberg is really building out his empire based on his personal brand. This six-episode docuseries will plunge into Wahlberg’s life as juggles his film career with his business ventures. We know he has an insanely micro-scheduled day, so if nothing else, seeing that in play should amuse.
Mare of Easttown (April 19): HBO’s splashy new series is centred on a detective trying to solve a murder in her small town while her own life falls apart around her. It’s Kate Winslet’s first TV project in a decade and the cast also includes Guy Pearce, Jean Smart, Evan Peters and Angourie Rice.
Grand Designs UK S18 (April 29): The latest season of the original Grand Designs includes an ambitious barn conversion, the transformation of a dilapidated flour mill and thermal experiment. Despite being called season 18, these episodes are what aired in the UK earlier this year.
