Three great sit­coms re­turn

Empire (UK) - - The Watch List -

VEEP (SKY ATLANTIC, MID 2019)

Pro­duc­tion on the sev­enth sea­son of HBO’S bril­liant com­edy star­ring Ju­lia-louis Drey­fus as Vice Pres­i­dent Selina Meyer was post­poned last Septem­ber when the ac­tress was di­ag­nosed with breast cancer. Now it’s back on since Drey­fus – who’s won six con­sec­u­tive Em­mys for her role – re­turned to work in Au­gust. But this will be the last-ever sea­son. Waah!

CATAS­TRO­PHE (CHAN­NEL 4, EARLY 2019)

The Bafta-win­ning show about the chal­lenge of keep­ing your sex life alive in a long-term re­la­tion­ship re­turns for a fourth se­ries. Writ­ten by and star­ring Sharon Hor­gan and Rob De­laney, this se­ries prom­ises a full and frank look at the cou­ple’s un­der-the-du­vet sex­ual shenani­gans like we’ve never seen be­fore. And we’ve al­ready seen quite a lot in pre­vi­ous se­ries.

DERRY GIRLS (CHAN­NEL 4, 2019)

The Derry Girls – school­girls Erin, Orla, Clare, Michelle and The English Fella (who’s an hon­orary fe­male, FYI) – are back to ter­rorise their peers, par­ents and the nuns who are at­tempt­ing to teach them. The North­ern-ir­ish com­edy was one of the big­gest ter­res­trial TV suc­cess sto­ries year: it was Chan­nel 4’s big­gest com­edy launch since 2004. Bril­liant, brash and sweary as flip, with a top ’90s sound­track.
