Daniel Tuite as Mr Milsom, Matt Berry as Detective Inspector Rabbit
IFC’s new comedy series Year of the Rabbit premieres on Wednesday, February 19th at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. In the premiere episode, D.I. Rabbit’s been chasing Victorian London’s criminals for as long as he can remember. But he’s not as young as he was, and his heart keeps stopping, so he’s forced to investigate the murder of a cabaret girl with the help of two young new partners, Mabel and Strauss.
The new series follows Detective Inspector Rabbit (Matt Berry; Toast of London, What We Do In The Shadows), a hardened booze-hound who’s seen it all, and his hapless, new, by-the-books partner Strauss (Freddie Fox; Cucumber, Banana). While they’re investigating a local murder, the lewd but insightful adoptive daughter (Susan Wokoma; Chewing Gum, Crazyhead) of the chief of police joins them, becoming the country’s first female officer. Together, the trio must fight crime while rubbing shoulders with street gangs, crooked politicians, Bulgarian princes, spiritualists, music hall stars and the Elephant Man.
Weddell seal pups are born from the womb, at 37°C, straight onto the sea ice.
Seven Worlds, One Planet continues on Saturday, February 22nd at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on BBC AMERICA, AMC, IFC and SundanceTV. Saturday’s all-new episode focuses on “Antarctica,” the coldest, windiest, most hostile continent. Penguin chicks run the gauntlet of orca while leopard seals, colorful starfish and gigantic worms carpet the seabed while on the surface – one of the world’s greatest feeding spectacles.
Following Emmy®-winning series Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II, Seven Worlds, One Planet tells the story of earth’s seven spectacular continents and how they shape the extraordinary animal behavior and biodiversity we see today. Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, and featuring a theme co-composed by Hans Zimmer and Jacob Shea, and series score by Jacob Shea for Bleeding Fingers Music, Seven Worlds, One Planet reveals how each distinct continent has shaped the unique animal life found there. The seven-part series marks the first time BBC Studio’s Natural History Unit has explored all the planet’s continents in a single series. Seven Worlds, One Planet is a BBC Studios Natural History Unit production, co-produced with BBC AMERICA, Tencent Penguin Pictures, ZDF, France Télévisions and China Media Group CCTV9.
Jodie Whittaker as The Doctor
Doctor Who, starring Jodie Whittaker, Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill, continues on Sunday, February 23 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on BBC AMERICA. Sunday’s all-new episode, “Ascension Of The Cybermen,” focuses on the aftermath of the Great CyberWar. The Doctor and friends arrive in the far future intent on protecting the last of the human race from the deadly Cybermen. But in the face of such a relentless enemy, has the Doctor put her best friends at risk? What terrors lie hiding in the depths of space? And what is Ko Sharmus?

The Walking Dead Season 10 returns on Sunday, February 23th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on AMC. In the mid-season premiere, “Squeeze,” our group must figure out how to get out of a precarious situation
The Walking Dead returns to find our group of survivors are trapped. Some in the confines of a cave filled with walkers, while others are caught in a spiral of suspicion and grief. All orchestrated at the hand of Alpha, who continues to prove the Whisperers are always watching, and one step ahead of the communities. Which includes the new and potentially deadly threat of having added Negan to their ranks.
Through this conflict and all they’ve lost, a few still hold onto hope, especially Eugene, who believes the mysterious voice he spoke with on the radio may lead to their world getting bigger once again.
But with the Whisperer War upon them, the collective communities must come together and possibly sacrifice all they have to find a way to silence the Whisperers once and for all. Otherwise Alpha will ensure they face a certain doom.
Later, viewers can catch an all-new episode of Talking Dead hosted by Chris Hardwick at 11:21 p.m. ET/PT, featuring The Walking Dead cast members, Lauren Ridloff (“Connie”) and Cooper Andrews (“Jerry.”)
Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill
Season 5 of Better Call Saul premieres on Sunday, February 23th at 10:05p.m ET/PT on AMC. In the season premiere, “Magic Man,” Jimmy, now doing business as Saul Goodman, unveils an unorthodox strategy for client development that tests Kim’s tolerance of his new legal persona. Lalo searches for the mysterious Michael, only to discover a problem within his own operation.
The new season continues the next night, Monday, February 24, with an encore presentation of the season premiere at 7:45 p.m. ET/PT followed by the season’s second episode in its regular timeslot at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. In the second episode, “50% off” Jimmy’s promotional stunt has unintended consequences. Nacho takes extreme measures to earn Lalo’s trust. “Saul” is a success at the courthouse, but still has yet to win Kim over. Simmering with rage and self-loathing, Mike loses his temper.
In the 10-episode fifth season of Better Call Saul, Jimmy McGill’s (Odenkirk) decision to practice law as “Saul Goodman'' creates unexpected and profound waves of change for those in his orbit. The series stars Bob Odenkirk, Rhea Seehorn, Jonathan Banks, Michael Mando, Giancarlo Esposito, Patrick Fabian and Tony Dalton, and is executive produced by showrunner Peter Gould, Vince Gilligan, Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein and Thomas Schnauz. Better Call Saul garnered a 2018 Peabody Award, and, over four seasons, has earned 32 Emmy® Award nominations, three Golden Globe® Award nominations, two Writers Guild Awards, three Critics’ Choice Awards, two Television Critics Association Awards and three AFI Awards for “TV Programs of the Year,'' among many other Guild nominations.
