What’s leaving Sky and NOW in October / November 2021?
James R | On 28, Oct 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 True Detective and My Brilliant Friend. Or, if you’ve got Sky Cinema, Harriet, Hero and a whole heap of Hitchcock.
This is your last chance to stream the following:
My Brilliant Friend: Season 1 – 18th November
Based on Elena Ferrante’s bestselling book of the same name, HBO’s lushly produced first foreign language miniseries hits Sky Atlantic. Set in a dangerous and fascinating Naples, the story follows the lives of two girls over six decades of their friendship. After receiving a phone call, Elena Greco discovers the most important and significant figure in her life, Raffaella “Lila” Cerullo, has gone missing. Knowing this disappearance has been a long time coming, Elena, now a writer, finally sits down to put the story of their intertwining lives on paper, starting from the 1950s where the two first met at school, in an attempt to describe the mystery of Lila – her brilliant friend, and in a way, worst enemy.
True Detective: Season 1 to 2 – 24th November
New Orleans native and novelist Nic Pizzolatto’s crime drama focuses on Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson) and brooding, Texas-born Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey), a pair of homicide detectives in Louisiana who are forced to relive a macabre 1995 murder case 17 years later when new information comes to light.
