Sky’s October programming keeps pace with a lot of really new features.
There are even nine new series (out of ten upcoming titles) on the way, starting with Belgravia, the historical drama of Julian Fellowes, creator Downton Abbey, specified at the time of restoration, until American Crime Story: Impeachment, season three of the Ryan Murphy anthology series, this time dedicated to the Sexgate scandal. Always among the novelties in the introduction to the series, there is a remake of tiep, western (Son) with Pierce Brosnan, two family dramas and several detective stories.
There is also a rich program of documentaries, which between Sky Arte and the dedicated channel (born in early summer) Sky Documentaries, offers a really impressive variety of titles.
And what about the movies? Of course they are not lacking, in a heterogeneous way: they range from the horror genre – including the latter Possession – Devil’s Apartment The latest Sky Original, presented out of competition in Venice Days at the 2021 Venice Film Festival, apparently telling the story of a rising star in the Romanian music scene (Nic, also known as lovely boy), but it digs much deeper.
But Sky is also entertainment and on the show side, the X Factor 2021 undoubtedly stands out, which, as scheduled, enters the live stage at (end) October.
Here is a detailed summary of all the major news not to be missed on Sky this month.
