What’s leaving Sky and NOW in July / August 2021?
James R | On 25, Jul 2021
Sky’s growing number of original shows and ever-expanding catalogue of blockbusters is handy for keeping your days and nights occupied, but before you break open new box sets or devour some blockbusting films, don’t miss your chance to catch some modern gems before their rights expire and they depart.
That means taking care not to miss out some of Sky’s exclusives, such as Mare of Easttown and Westworld. Or, if you’ve got Sky Cinema, Ad Astra, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw and Frozen 2.
This is your last chance to stream the following:
Murder at the Cottage: Season 1 – 27th July
Two days before Christmas in 1996, Sophie Toscan du Plantier was brutally murdered at her holiday cottage in Schull, West Cork. The murder rocked the quiet Irish town and 24 years later, the case remains a mystery. Already binged through Netflix’s true crime series? Follow it up with Jim Sheridan’s own take on the case.
Yonderland: Season 1 to 3 – 5th August
Sky’s delightful family comedy from the people behind Horrible Histories and Ghosts sees everyday housewife Debbie (Martha Howe-Douglas) fulfil a prophecy that brings her, via a portal in her kitchen cupboard, to the magical, puppet-filled land of Yonderland.
The Trip To Greece: Season 4 – 5th August
Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reunite for their fourth culinary odyssey of prickly conversations, self-aware sightseeing and lots of impressions.
Sally4Ever: Season 1 – 5th August
Julia Davis’ exquisitely horrible comedy is howlingly funny – and seriously depraved.
Intelligence: Season 2 – 5th August
Nick Mohammed’s laugh-out-loud spy comedy makes a confident and smart return.
Code 404: Season 1 – 5th August
Daniel Mays and Stephen Graham are laugh-out-loud funny in this surprising and silly cop comedy.
Bloods: Season 1 – 5th August
Samson Kayo and Jane Horrocks are a winning double-act in this energetic, entertaining comedy.
Betty: Season 1 – 19th August
Crystal Moselle’s freewheeling follow-up to Skate Kitchen is a beautifully uplifting ride.
