hmv.com previews five of the most exciting TV dramas that will be coming to your screens in April...

 

Westworld

(Sky Atlantic)

 

After drawing huge ratings and excellent reviews for its debut season, it was no surprise when HBO greenlit a second season of Westworld before the first had finished its run on television.

Plot details on what we can expect from the new season are strictly under wraps, but we do know that Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, Luke Hemsworth, James Marsden and Ed Harris are back to reprise their roles in some form or other.

For the new season, which runs again to 10 episodes, Katja Herbers, Gustaf Skarsgård, Fares Fares, and Betty Gabriel all join the cast.

 

 


Ordeal By Innocence

(BBC One)

 

Originally billed for release at Christmas, but then reshot after allegations of sexual assault were put against original stat Ed Westwick, this new take on Agatha Christie’s mystery comes to screens in April instead.

The three-parter boasts a cast that includes Bill Nighy, Anthony Boyle, Anna Chancellor, Morven Christie, Crystal Clarke Alice Eve, Matthew Goode, Ella Purnell, Eleanor Tomlinson, Luke Treadaway, while Christian Cooke has replaced Westwick.

The story follows wealthy philanthropist Rachel Argyll, who is found is murdered at her family’s huge estate Sunny Point. When her adopted son Jack Argyll is arrested for her murder, he vehemently protests his innocence. But is he telling the truth?

 

 

Marvel’s Runaways

(SyFy)

 

Marvel’s long-running comic series comes to the small screen next month.

The series follows six teenagers, who, after discovering that their parents are super-villains in disguise, band together to run away from their homes in order to atone for their parents' actions and to discover the secrets of their origins.

Rhenzy Feliz, Lyrica Okano, Virginia Gardner, Ariela Barer, Gregg Sulkin, and Allegra Acosta star as the Runaways themselves.

 

 


Deep State

(Fox)

 

Mark Strong stars in this brutal new drama set in the heat of the war on terror.

Strong plays Max Easton, a retired M16 operative who is forced back into the field to avenge the death of his son.

This bloody journey soon spins out of control and Easton finds himself at the heart of a covert intelligence war and a conspiracy that could topple world governments.

Starring alongside Strong are Joe Dempsie and Karima McAdams for this eight-part drama.

 

 


Legion

(Fox)

 

Surprisingly weirdly and seriously compelling, Legion won itself a lot of praise during its first season and now it returns for a second run, with Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley still in the showrunner’s chair.

In this season, we find leading man David Haller trapped by a mysterious orb and The Shadow King searching for his original body.

Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Jemaine Clement, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton and Jean Smart are all back to reprise their roles, while Navid Negahban joins the cast, taking the role of big bad Amahl Farouk/Shadow King.
