Veronica Mars 4

The fourth season is a continuation of the 2004–07 television series as well as the 2014 film.

Kristen Bell reprises her role as the title character, and it features the return of several characters from the original series as well as the introduction of new characters.

Spring breakers are getting murdered in Neptune, thereby decimating the seaside town's lifeblood tourist industry.

After Mars Investigations is hired by the family of one of the victims to find their son's killer, Veronica is drawn into an epic eight-episode mystery.

The story pits the enclave's wealthy elites, who would rather put an end to the month-long bacchanalia, against a working class that relies on the cash influx that comes with being the West Coast's answer to Daytona Beach.

Krypton 2

What if Superman never existed?

Set two generations before the destruction of Superman's home planet, Krypton follows Seg-El, the legendary Man of Steel's grandfather, as a young man who fights to save his home planet from destruction.

Season 2 brings us back to a changed Kandor, locked in a battle over its freedom and its future.

General Dru-Zod is now in control. He's on a ruthless mission to rebuild Krypton according to his ideals and to secure its future by conquering the universe.

Faced with a bleak outlook, our hero, Seg-El, attempts to unite a dispersed group of resisters in an effort to defeat Zod and restore hope to their beloved planet.

Their chance at redemption is threatened however, by their opposing tactics, shifting alliances and conflicting moral boundaries - forcing each of them to individually determine how far they're willing to go in pursuit of a better tomorrow.

Something's Killing Me

Hosted by Law & Order: SVU veteran BD Wong, Something's Killing Me delves into the investigations of life or death medical mysteries.

The six-part documentary production examines puzzling diseases and symptoms that result in near-death struggles.

Each episode chronicles a race against time to discover what or who is killing the patient.

Doctors, scientists, and, in some cases, federal investigators act as medical sleuths to solve the mystery in which life literally hangs in the balance.

Die Ware Naarheid 2

Channel: kykNET & kie (DStv 145)
TX Time: 21h00

Die Ware Naarheid 2

Satirical news programme hosted by comedian Schalk Bezuidenhout. With the help of his two correspondents (Erns Gründling and Bibi Slippers), he reports on current affairs in a tongue-in-cheek manner.

He also chats to well-known people to get an alternative view of the latest news.

Although the programme is filled with jokes, it's definitely not a joke: it will help you to make sense of everything that is going on without leaving you depressed or bored.

With Die Ware Naarheid you will get a weekly update of news, with a good dose of humour added to it – because sometimes it's the only way to handle the ugly truth.

From political scandals to silly happenings in small towns – Die Ware Naarheid never misses anything and makes biltong of sacred cows.

TX Time: 21h30
Genre: Dating Game Show, Reality Competition

Are You the One? 8

Sixteen singles head off to Hawaii in hopes of finding their "perfect match" and splitting a $1-million cash prize.

For the first time ever, all the singles identify as sexually fluid, meaning there are no gender limitations in perfect matches, and finding love is fair game.

This season introduces Dr. Frankie, a relationship expert who works with the singles to help them become better daters and navigate between drama, poor choices and reoccurring patterns in relationships.

Dr. Frankie also helps the singles identify current disaster-dating trends such as ghosting, benching and stashing, and tests them on their willingness to fall into these painful trends.

Host Terrence J. digs deeper with the cast than ever before, helping coach and guide them to tap into their true feelings and follow their hearts.

From coming out moments, to discovering sexual and gender identity, Are You the One? tells stories about navigating relationships and finding love as a sexually fluid individual for the first time ever on a reality dating show.
