A start date hasn't yet been revealed, but it has been confirmed that Martin will return as PC Chris Carson.


BBC prison drama Time received a 100% score from Rotten Tomatoes when it landed in June 2021, so it's no surprise bosses have renewed the show for a second series.

The Umbrella Academy

December wouldn't be the same without I'm A Celeb would it?! After spin-off show I'm A Celeb: South Africa took place this year, the main show is due to return to Australia later this year.

The Apprentice

Lord Alan Sugar and his aides Baroness Karren Brady and Tim Campbell are set to return for series 18 in early 2024.

The platform has brought us some of our faves including The Crown, Sex Education and hit show Bridgerton, which set a new record for the platform as it is projected to have been streamed in 63 million households after four weeks on the service.

The demand for Netflix in the past few years has grew due to people staying at home during local and national lockdowns. During the first UK lockdown in March 2020, the amount of content watched by members on the platform increase by a third, in comparison to 2019.

Any members who do want to pay the new monthly amount can change to a different plan at any time, or alternatively cancel their subscription for free.
