Must-Watch TV Shows on M-Net and M-Net City this July!
There’s a hot line-up this July that’s sure to keep you warm through the cold winter nights. New seasons of legal favourites Suits and The Good Fight see the return – as well as the introduction – of old and new cast members. Some familiar procedural with a new season of Elementary and topping off the action is the brand-new drama 9-1-1.
The brand-new season of the acclaimed legal series Suits starts Thursday 19 July at 21:00 on M-Net channel 101- just one day after its US broadcast. Gabriel Macht reprises his role along with Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty, Dulé Hill…and a new partner in town – who isn’t here to play nice.
The Suits season 7 finale, aptly titled “Goodbye”, left most fans very tearful as they had to say farewell to main characters Mike (Patrick J. Adams) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) who were sent off with a fairy tale wedding, that was seasons in the making. As expected the two lovebirds, who were set to have a wedding ages ago, would not leave New York without tying the knot. They brought forward their wedding date and Donna used her skills to get everything of the best for their special day. A touching and bittersweet goodbye also played out between Mike and Harvey, brothers and friends (both on and off screen), where Mike thanked his mentor for always being there for him. A true end to an epic era.
Season eight’s announcement came with news of an exciting new addition: Katherine Heigl, who, from the first-look, is ready to suit up! Heigl will be joining hit legal drama Suits as a regular and will play new Pearson Specter Litt partner Samantha Wheeler, a tough and talented attorney who knows what she wants and how to get it. Seems like everyone will be kept on their toes with a new face in the building. The personal travails of Harvey Specter will not be forgotten, of course after last season’s drama with Donna, viewers will be eager to learn what the pair’s future will look like.
Suits starts on M-Net channel 101 on Thursday 19 July at 21:00 https://m-net.dstv.com/show/suits_829 , with two additional repeats on Fridays at 11:30 and Wednesdays at 07:00. If viewers have missed seasons 1-7 (or they’d just like to reminisce about the good times with Mike and Harvey) the series is also available now on Showmax.
Fight The Good Fight!
The Good Fight’s Diane, Lucca and Maia return to M-Net channel 101 from Monday 23 July at 21:00. The firm’s members found themselves in a tense position in the season 1 finale, both personally and professionally. One only needed to glance at the episode title to pick up that indeed there was going to be some “Chaos” in this episode. After taking on a new client accused of cyber-terrorism, Diane had the misfortune to learn that her bold move resulted in unforeseen repercussions for the firm, especially for Lucca.
An unfortunate event brings the firm together once more in the season two premiere, along with the prospect of a new name partner: Liz Reddick-Lawrence. Series stars Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo and Rose Leslie return, alongside Delroy Lindo, Audra McDonald, Sarah Steele, Justin Bartha, Michael Boatman and Nyambi Nyambi.
Season two of The Good Fight Starts Monday 23 July at 21:00 on M-Net channel 101 https://m-net.dstv.com/show/the-good-fight_822 , additional airings will be scheduled on Tuesdays at 12:30 and Thursdays at 08:00.
Elementary, my dear Watson!
Season 6 of the modern-day mystery drama Elementary starts on Wednesday 18 July at 19:00 exclusively on M-Net City channel 115. In contemporary New York, an often-troubled but highly-skilled Sherlock Holmes partners up with his astute and sometimes exasperated companion, Joan Watson. Together, these two bring their expertise to the NYPD to solve crimes.
In last season's finale, the team uncovered the mastermind behind the gang war. Holmes however, was not completely well: he’d been experiencing increasing spates of memory loss and hallucination leading to quite a cliffhanger when he underwent an MRI in the closing scenes of the episode.
Season 6 will answer questions around Holme’s discovery in the aftermath of his brain scans, while also introducing us to a new character who our hero finds friendship with. But is this new face someone who can be trusted?
Watch the latest season of Elementary on the home of the heroes, M-Net City channel 115 at 19:00 from Wednesday 18 July at 19:00 https://m-net.dstv.com/show/elementary_824 . Additional airings are on Thursdays at 16:00, Fridays at 11:00, Sundays at 14:00 and Mondays at 07:00.
