Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK
With Orange Thursday on Friday, don’t be too surprised that What time, TMINE? has moved back a day as well.
Regular TMINE news readers will be aware that, ahem, not only have there been few acquisitions over the past couple of weeks, there are now even fewer TV shows being made around the world. So expect things to be a bit quieter on TMINE as a result, at least in terms of news and airdates, but maybe also in terms of reviews (that’s more likely to be a mid-term issue).
All the same, we have had some news of when some shows are going to start in the UK. After the jump, details on Home Before Dark, Emergence, The Walking Dead: World Beyond and The Undoing.
UK premiere dates
Home Before Dark (Apple TV+)
UK premiere date: Friday, April 3
Home Before Dark features a nine-year-old investigative journalist as she digs into her father’s past, and is inspired by a true story. It follows Hilde, a young girl who moves from Brooklyn to a small lakeside town, as she resolves to solve a cold case that everyone else has given up on.
Stars: Brooklynn Prince and Jim Sturgess
The Walking Dead: World Beyond (US: AMC; UK: Amazon)
UK premiere date: Monday, April 13
The Walking Dead: World Beyond will focus on the first generation raised in the zombie apocalypse of The Walking Dead. Some will become heroes. Some will become villains. In the end, all of them will be changed forever. Grown-up and cemented in their identities, both good and bad.
Stars: Aliyah Royale, Alexa Mansour, Annet Mahendru, Nicolas Cantu, Hal Cumpston and Nico Tortorella
Emergence (US: ABC; UK: Fox)
UK premiere date: Monday, April 20, 9pm
Beyond explanation… beyond understanding… lies the truth. The drama follows a police chief who takes in a young child she finds near the site of a mysterious accident who has no memory of what has happened. The investigation draws her into a conspiracy larger than she ever imagined, and the child’s identity is at the centre of it all.
Jo Evans, a whip-smart police chief, plunges her family into a deepening mystery when she discovers a young girl the night of an inexplicable plane crash in the quiet northeastern town and decides to protect her. Who is this child? Where did she come from and what does she know? Benny Gallagher, an investigative reporter, intrudes into Jo’s inquiry with his own take on the shadowy evidence.
As the spellbinding mystery unfolds, the family’s relationships are tested, unexplained events question reality, and everyone chases the shocking answers. What happens when a regular family is gripped by unimaginable circumstances?
Stars: Allison Tolman, Alexa Swinton, Owain Yeoman, Ashley Aufderheide, Robert Bailey Jr, Zabryna Guevara, Donald Faison and Clancy Brown
