The premieres of two highly-anticipated new dramas and the return of two hugely popular series are just some of what’s in store for stateside fans of Down Under TV in December.
Welshman Ioan Gruffudd stars as the eponymous forensic pathologist in Harrow, the latest mystery series from Australia to screen in the US.
It’s a three-day weekend, so how appropriate that there are three new and returning series (plus a program addition) that you can stream through Labor Day (and beyond).
Mystery Road is one of the best new international television premieres of 2018, so get to the largest screen TV you can and make this crime drama miniseries your next binge-watch.
August brings new and returning Down Under TV series about dangerous animals, an Aussie family in a Kiwi town, and a mystery in the outback.
Mark your calendars for a brand new Australian TV series and the return of other Down Under TV favorites, including the sixth and final season of A Place to Call Home.
There is a double dose of The Doctor Blake Mysteries this month, plus a new documentary from New Zealand and the final season of an Australian comedy-drama.
Most stateside Down Under TV fans know Australian actor Rodger Corser from The Doctor Blake Mysteries and The Heart Guy, but there are more shows to see him in.
