Our pick of shows to watch out for as they come back from their season hiatus
Find out who will ride the third dragon on Game of Thrones, whether Amy and Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory will be together forever, and go on new adventures with Sherlock this coming year, which has a few mysteries for television audiences to wait for with bated breath. While a few shows return from their mid-season breaks, others are gearing up for renewed plot twists. We bring you our pick of six shows that you can’t afford to miss, come 2017.
How to get away with murder
Star World HD, January
After taking a break post-season 3’s ninth episode, How to Get Away with Murder is set to return with a new episode this January, bringing back the traumatic developments of the last episode. With Oliver’s boyfriend Connor under the radar as a possible suspect in Wes Gibbin’s murder, the revelation about his killer is expected in the upcoming episodes.
Sherlock AXN, January 1
Benedict Cumberbatch owned it as Sherlock in this crime drama series based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes detective stories. While it has been three years since a full season of Sherlock has been aired, the fans had to satisfy themselves with a not so informative special episode, The Abominable Bride. In season two, we all saw Moriarty (Andrew Scott) commit suicide. The unanswered question is that is the infamous villain back?
The Big Bang Theory Zee Cafe, January 5
This popular sitcom is already in its tenth season. While this season could be the last of the series, episode 12, ‘The Holiday Summation’, will hopefully answer our
queries. Episode 11 left us surprised when Amy (Mayim Bialik) and Sheldon (Jim Parsons) decided to live-in, and rumour has it that Sheldon might pop the question. However, it is confirmed that the cast will come back from their respective Christmas-breaks and narrate their hilarious events to each other.
Game of Thrones April 21, HBO
With Jon Snow and Sansa Stark back at Westeros and a likely alliance between Varys, Olenna Tyrell and Daenerys Targaryen on the cards, season 7 of Game of Thrones, based on the novels by George RR Martin, looks comfortably placed for some game-changing developments.With Jon Snow’s parentage out in the open, it is only a matter of time before we see how the claims to the Iron Throne are set.
Suits Comedy Central, January
As Suits returns from its mid-season break for the final episode of Season 6, several plot twists await eager fans this January. After Jessica quit the firm, Pearson Specter Litt is looking set to lose another valuable employee as Rachel is handed an offer by her father, Robert Zane. Harvey Specter is set to rekindle his romance with Donna, while he and Louis have a tough time coming to terms with getting the firm back on its feet.
Star World, January
Their mid-season hiatus left fans with one of the biggest cliffhangers the show has seen in its 12 years on air. In its 13th season, the show’s 10th episode is set to premiere in January 2017, with rumours suggesting the potential breakup of Amelia and Owen and a budding romance between Meredith and Alex.
The one-and-a-half season old crime drama television series did not take long to become a topic of conversation. The mid-season break after the exciting episode of Patterson (Ashley Johnson) and Borden (Ukweli Roach) pointing guns at each other while a gunshot being heard in the background as the credits rolled, has left us with too many question. Will Patterson survive?
