Kate Kane never planned to be Gotham's new vigilante.

Three years after Batman mysteriously disappeared, Gotham is a city in despair. Without the Caped Crusader, the Gotham City Police Department was overrun and outgunned by criminal gangs.

Enter Jacob Kane and his military-grade Crows Private Security, which now protects the city with omnipresent firepower and militia.

Years before, Jacob's first wife and daughter were killed in the crossfire of Gotham crime. He sent his only surviving daughter, Kate Kane, away from Gotham for her safety.

After a dishonorable discharge from military school and years of brutal survival training, Kate returns home when the Alice in Wonderland gang targets her father and his security firm, by kidnapping his best Crow officer Sophie Moore.

Although remarried to wealthy socialite Catherine Hamilton-Kane, who bankrolls the Crows, Jacob is still struggling with the family he lost, while keeping Kate - the daughter he still has - at a distance.

But Kate is a woman who's done asking for permission. In order to help her family and her city, she'll have to become the one thing her father loathes - a dark knight vigilante.

With the help of her compassionate stepsister, Mary, and the crafty Luke Fox, the son of Wayne Enterprises' tech guru Lucius Fox, Kate Kane continues the legacy of her missing cousin, Bruce Wayne, as Batwoman.

Still holding a flame for her ex-girlfriend, Sophie, Kate uses everything in her power to combat the dark machinations of the psychotic Alice, who's always somewhere slipping between sane and insane.

Armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind, Kate soars through the shadowed streets of Gotham as Batwoman.

But don't call her a hero yet. In a city desperate for a saviour, she must first overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham's symbol of hope.

Supergirl 5

Channel: M-Net City (DStv 115)
TX Time: 18h20
Genre: Superhero, Fantasy, Drama

Supergirl 5

Action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El.

Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton and was sent to Earth where she was raised by a foster family.

Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin, Superman, in order to keep her identity a secret.

Years later, Kara was living in National City and still concealing her powers, when a plane crash threatened Alex's life and Kara took to the sky to save her.

Now, Kara balances her work as a reporter for CatCo Worldwide Media with her work for the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government organisation whose mission is to keep National City - and the Earth - safe from sinister threats.

As Kara struggles to navigate her relationships and her burgeoning life as a reporter, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl.

Two new characters will be joining the action in National City for the upcoming season: DC's Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata) and renowned reporter William Dey.

Julie Gonzalo (Veronica Mars) will star as iconic DC character Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata).

A polished businesswoman and heir to a Central American tech empire, Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata) is now making a hostile advance into the world of media.

Unapologetic and unafraid to make waves, she also holds a mystical secret.

UK-based actor Staz Nair - who is perhaps best known for playing Qhono, a Dothraki warrior loyal to Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones - will play hardened reporter William Dey, an original character created for the series.

On the surface, he's a cynic and a sellout who looks down on Kara's earnest idealism.

Dey's not interested in making friends, he just wants to get the story - but his ties to the criminal underworld could prove problematic.

In the Season 5 premiere, "Event Horizon": Kara is surprised to find that CatCo has a new owner who has brought in a star reporter.

New couples emerge and explore their budding relationships while J'onn J'onzz receives an unexpected visitor.

Renowned bakers Buddy Valastro from Cake Boss and Duff Goldman from Ace of Cakes are back for a second season of Buddy vs. Duff to battle for the ultimate baking king title.

The two baking stars faced off last season in this reality baking competition show, in which Duff ultimately walked away as the winner. But Buddy is seeking a re-match.

The duo engages in a new set of competitions to see who will reign supreme. Will Duff reclaim his crown, or will Buddy steal the title of the ultimate baking king?

This season they turn the heat up a notch when their wives Lisa Valastro and Johnna Goldman get involved in the fun as the pairs go coast-to-coast and compete in themed baking gauntlets.

The first week they are in the heart of New York making some Big Apple-themed cakes judged by restaurateur and New York news anchor Rosanna Scotto and actress Debi Mazar.

They are going all in this season, making Broadway-themed cakes inspired by the musical Waitress and the National History Museum.

This all leads up to the finale, which is Star Wars themed, as they travel to Disney Land where actor Billy Dee Williams joins in on the fun at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

Barry Allen lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department.

Barry's life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive - The Flash.

After thinking he and his wife Iris West-Allen could finally enjoy being newlyweds, they discover their future daughter Nora West-Allen, who is a speedster known as XS, travelled back in time to heroically fight by her father's side and stop the one villain The Flash is destined to never defeat, the meta-serial killer Cicada.

The Flash and XS rely on the help of Team Flash, which includes super heroes Caitlin Snow, Cisco Ramon, Ralph Dibny, master-detective Sherloque Wells and The Flash's adoptive father Joe West and his girlfriend Cecile Horton to finally stop Cicada, save The Flash's legacy, and discover the truth about the evil mastermind who's pulling manipulative strings through time.

This season there's a new doctor in Central City: Heroes star Sendhil Ramamurthy in the recurring role of DC villain Bloodwork.

Ramamurthy plays Dr. Ramsey Rosso, a brilliant physician with a genius intellect, and the world's leading expert on hematological oncology.

A former colleague of S.T.A.R. Labs' Caitlin Snow, Rosso rekindles their friendship after they are reunited by an unexpected event.

But their longtime bond is quickly shattered when the doctor's desire to defy the laws of nature takes him down a dark path... one that transforms Rosso from an old friend into the most chilling villain Team Flash has ever faced: the monstrous Bloodwork.

In the Season 6 premiere, "Into the Void": While Barry and Iris deal with the heartbreaking loss of their daughter, Nora, the team faces their greatest threat yet - one that threatens to destroy all of Central City.

Meanwhile, Killer Frost has a brush with death that results in an unexpected new dynamic that will change her relationship with Caitlin forever.

TX Time: 21h00

Stranger Among Us

In every community, every loving family, and in every circle of friends, there exists a delicate balance that keeps the peace.

But sometimes all it takes to upset that balance is the addition of a single person who, intentionally or not, triggers a wave of violence.

This series tells the twisted-but-true stories of established communities and social circles turned upside down by the presence of a single newcomer, leading to bizarre and brutal murders that slowly reveal not everyone is who they seem.

Featuring dramatic recreations and archive footage, in-depth interviews with investigators and journalists, as well as family, friends and community members, each life-shattering event is revealed from all angles.

From the Christmas tree farmers shot dead to the respected Chicago dermatologist tortured to death in his own examination room, this series reveals how the most dangerous people are the ones we least expect.

Startup 3

TX Time: 21h40
Genre: Drama

Startup 3

Set amongst the unconstrained, yet opportunist streets of Miami, StartUp weaves a complex narrative, featuring the high-stakes struggle of what one will do to reach ultimate success.

Forced to fund a tech company with dirty money from unsuspecting places while forming ties with a dangerous, Haitian gang, the fight to build a business pales in comparison to the fight to stay alive, especially when there's a vehement FBI agent who wields the power to make or break those he comes in contact with - and not always for the right reasons.

In 10 all-new episodes, friends will be fighting it out for power and will be threatened by what might be the most dangerous criminal organization of all: the U.S. Government.

Academy Award-winning actress Mira Sorvino joins the cast in a guest starring role, portraying NSA Agent Rebecca Stroud, who has come to investigate ArakNet.
