How to Get Away with Murder- Season 6
The classic How to Get Away with Murder returns for a sixth season on Sky Witness and NOW TV from June 4.
The series features Viola Davies as Annalise Keating, a criminal defence teacher, in the final season of the Shonda Rhimes mystery series.
Sky said: “As the final reckoning begins, Annalise struggles with the toll that Laurel (Karla Souza) and Christopher’s (Alfred Enoch) disappearance has taken on everyone.
“Oliver (Conrad Ricamora), Frank (Charlie Weber) and Bonnie (Liza Weil) disagree on the possible reasons behind Laurel’s disappearance, and Tegan (Amirah Vann) handles the aftermath of Emmett’s (Timothy Hutton) apparent poisoning.”
Fans have already taken to Twitter to show their love for the series, with one fan saying: “I bet you with everything you hold dear, please try and watch the How to Get Away with Murder TV series.
“The most annoying part is the series has to end and that’s the end of the road for television series for me.”
The Plastic Nile
This Sky Original documentary will be airing on Sky Documentaries and NOW TV on June 6.
The documentary follows Sky News correspondent Alex Crawford, who investigates the devastating impact of plastic pollution along the world’s longest river – the Nile.
Sky said: “This eye-opening investigation leads the team from the river’s source of Lake Victoria to the mouth of the Nile in Egypt.
“As they look into the knock-on effect of single-use plastic for the wildlife and millions of people who rely on the river for their survival, the revelations are even more disturbing than originally imagined.
“From exposing the harm caused to food chains, to shining a light on the illegal black-market plastic bag trade in Kenya, the documentary reveals how human habits are destroying one of the world’s largest, oldest and most important waterways.”

A Killer Uncaged
A Killer Uncaged is a true crime documentary which will air on Sky Crime and NOWTV on June 28.
The crime series tells the real-life story of Dale Wayne Sigler who was sentenced to death for capital murder – a crime he admitted to committing.
Three decades later, he is off death row and is released back into a completely different world where he must learn to fit in.
Sky said: “Extraordinary access reveals a truly incredible story as we follow Sigler from inside prison and on his first steps to freedom as he’s released into the custody of Carole, the 70-year-old prison pen pal he barely knows.
“As Sigler begins to adjust on the outside, he addresses the life he took as well as the one he lost and also divulges that his real motive for committing this brutal crime is shockingly different to what the world has always believed it to be.”
His story hit global headlines, so this is a highly anticipated series which is expected to be popular.

The series is about a complicated relationship between Italian childhood friends Elena (Elisa Del Genio/Margherita Mazzucco) and Lila (Ludovica Nasti/Gaia Girace).
