iZombie 5

Olivia "Liv" Moore (Rose McIver) was a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out... until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy.

As one of the newly undead, Liv is doing her best to blend in and look as human as possible.

In the fifth and final season premiere, "Thug Death": While investigating a murder case with no body and no brain to eat, the only evidence Liv and Clive have to work with is a grainy video and a little bit of blood found at the crime scene.

Meanwhile, Blaine is up to his old tricks.

Forbidden: Dying for Love

The jaw-dropping stories of forbidden love: relationships that break taboos, cross boundaries, shock communities and lead to extraordinary and shocking crimes.

Each episode follows the escalating story of a relationship across a social and moral divide that culminated in deadly violence.

Among the forbidden tales uncovered in this series is the single mum whose 18-month jail sentence led to a passionate relationship with a prison guard.

But when she vows to leave him, will he let her go?

When a strict father who forbids relationships discovers his 15-year-old daughter plans to run away with her boyfriend of four years, will he follow through on his vow to kill her?

And when a single mum's new fiancé asks her to kill his ex-wife and children, will she accept his sinister proposal in the fear her family could be next?

Anything is possible in the name of love – especially when that love is forbidden.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine 5

In the Season 5 premiere, "The Big House Pt.1", Jake and Rosa assimilate to their new lives behind bars, but both are coping in very different ways.

Jake bonds with his cellmate, Caleb (guest star Tim Meadows), and is forced to join a prison gang led by notorious inmate Romero (guest star Lou Diamond Phillips), in order to gain his protection.

Meanwhile, in the women's prison, Rosa puts Holt and Terry to the test by having them complete outrageous favours for her. Back in the precinct, Amy and Charles are doing all they can to exonerate their colleagues.

In the second episode, "The Big House Pt.2", when the warden (guest star Toby Huss) asks Jake to investigate Romero's (guest star Lou Diamond Phillips) drug smuggling operation, Jake and Caleb (guest star Tim Meadows) find themselves caught between the loyalty Jake has sworn to both of them.

Meanwhile, Amy is offered a deal by a local mobster who claims he can prove that Hawkins (guest star Gina Gershon) is guilty, but Holt and the rest of the gang think they have a safer plan.
