You guessed it. Upcoming crime drama Tokyo Vice is an adaptation of the 2009 true crime memoir of the same name by Jake Adelstein, and is inspired by his real life experiences as a reporter in the ’90s, where he worked at one of Japan’s most prominent newspapers, the Yomiuri Shinbun, as the first non-Japanese staff writer. His keen interest in investigative journalism leads right him into the belly of Japan’s Yakuza underworld. Ansel Elgort stars alongside Japanese TV veteran Ken Watanabe in this one.
At Las Encinas, a new semester means a new victim, a new killer, and a new mystery. Hit Spanish teen drama Elite returns for a fifth season with more of the same drama, suspense, secrets, and of course, the show’s continued affinity for tragedy. We’re excited.
We’ve got another show releasing on the same day, this time it’s a Dutch mini-series titled Dirty Lines. The show is set in 1980s Amsterdam, a time when the Dutch society was undergoing expeditious changes, and revolves around an enterprising university student who stumbles into an unexpected, irreverent career.
This award-winning American television sketch comedy show is notable for its numerous firsts including the first all-black women writer’s room, and the first black woman sketch director. We’re ready to crack up with season three of this groundbreaking HBO Original comedy series.
Love courtroom dramas? We believe you’ll be thrilled for this upcoming British limited series that truly embraces the crime genre. The mini TV series is based on a book, and dives deep into Britain’s elite through personal and political scandal, where justice and privilege both have equal impact on the truth.
Horror fans, this one is for you. Tempted by the prize money, two friends reboot a mysterious 1980s video game which leads them to a surreal world of next-level terror. We’re thinking Jumanji, but a lot scarier. Seems like being indecisive can actually lead you to your death here.
American comedy-drama mystery thriller The Flight Attendant returns for a second season this April 2022. Season one was wrong hotel, wrong bed, and dead man. What’s in store for season two? Watch to find out.
If you’re one for documentaries, mark your calendar for 27 April 2022, because that’s when The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes releases on Netflix. The investigative documentary explores the mystery surrounding the icon’s death through exclusive interviews with her inner circle.
This month, we bid farewell to Ozark. Finally, one of Netflix’s biggest shows is back with the final half of the final season. Facing threats from all sides, Marty and Wendy fight to keep their family together while appeasing the cartel and the FBI. We don’t doubt that the show will go out with a bang.
