What’s On – New shows this winter

Better Call Saul season 4

The TV premiere of the award-winning Better Call Saul’s fourth season is a must-watch if you’re not up to date with the story of Jimmy McGill aka Saul Goodman.

By the end of season 3, a near-fatal car crash forced Jimmy and Kim to re-evaluate what’s truly important to them - and how far they’re willing to go to pursue their ambitions.

While Kim chooses to take a step back from her fledgling solo practice to recuperate, Jimmy tries to make amends with his brother. Chuck rejects Jimmy’s attempt to reconcile and soon relapses, tearing apart his house to remove any last pulse of electricity and then finally setting a deadly fire.

Watch Better Call Saul season 4 on Thursdays at 9pm.

December sees the return of The Terror anthology series. Season 1 airs with double-bill episodes from 9pm, weeknights, from 14th until 18th December.

Produced by Ridley Scott and inspired by a true story, The Terror focuses on the British Royal Navy’s perilous voyage into uncharted territory as the crew attempts to discover the Northwest Passage, the route from Europe through the Arctic Ocean to the Pacific.

Faced with treacherous conditions, limited resources, dwindling hope and fear of the unknown, the crew is pushed to the brink of extinction.
