What’s coming soon to STARZPLAY UK in April 2021?

As one of the smaller streaming platforms in the UK, STARZPLAY struggles when it comes to having a large enough library to compete with Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. 2021 has seen it stand out through the exclusive release of Stephen King’s The Stand and the second season of Pennyworth.
Here’s what’s coming soon to STARZPLAY in April 2021:
The Personal History of David Copperfield – 3rd April
Armando Iannucci’s quick-witted, modern period drama is an absolute delight.
Dublin Murders: Season 1 – 4th April
Set during the height of the Celtic Tiger financial boom of the millennium, the series focuses on two murder investigations led by ambitious and charismatic Detectives Rob Reilly and Cassie Maddox. The victims are seemingly unrelated, but as we will discover, they are knitted together by powerful shared themes.
The Attaché – Weekly
The Attaché tells the story of Avshalom, an Israeli Jewish man of Moroccan descent, a successful musician who relocates to Paris for his wife Annabelle’s new job as the Attaché to the Israeli embassy in Paris. Becoming an anonymous immigrant in a foreign land soon takes on a new meaning as Avshalom arrives on the same day as the largest terror attack in French history. Their dream romantic year abroad quickly turns into a nightmare – a marital crisis in the eternal capital of romance, a personal immigration crisis in the heart of Europe, and a crisis of masculinity and fatherhood. New episodes arrive weekly, until the finale on 11th April.
Pennyworth: Season 2 – Weekly
A year after the explosive events of last season, England finds itself embroiled in a devastating civil war, with the powerful, neo-fascist Raven Union, led by Lord Harwood threatening to control the entire country. North London remains one of the few resistance holdouts remaining. It’s here in the West End Neutral Zone, that we find Alfred Pennyworth. After years in the British Army, his training with the SAS has taught him to be a cynical optimist – expecting the worst, but knowing that he can handle it. Now running The Delaney, a black-market Soho club that welcomes everyone, regardless of their politics, Alfred is now in search of a way out – before London, and his country, burns itself to the ground. And he’s got his eye on America. Episodes arrive weekly on Sundays.
