DStv Brings a Double Dose of Drama as Fan-Favorites Return To Screens This Month

Catch New seasons of Big Little Lies and The Handmaid’s Tale return to M-Net on DStv channel 102

Strong female leads with dark, compelling and riveting stories make their way to DStv this June on some of television’s most critically acclaimed dramas.

M-Net (DStv channel, 102) headliners,  Big Little Lies season 2 and The Handmaid’s Tale season 3 both start on Monday 10 June at 21:00 CAT and 22:00 CAT respectively. With (growing) ensemble casts and brand new seasons, these award-winning series make their exclusive, much-anticipated return to the home of magic.

On Monday 10 June at 21:00 CAT, Big Little Lies returns with the fine talent of its excellent first season: Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Zoё Kravitz – alongside an imposing new character played by Academy Award-winner, Meryl Streep. Season one unpacked the intricate stories of five very different wives, mothers and complex women whose lives were thrown into turmoil by the events of a single night. Now, in season two, everything seems the same in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California. Our mothers continue to dote, their husbands continue to support, their children remain adorable and the houses are just as beautiful. But the night of the school fundraiser has changed that façade, leaving the community reeling as the “Monterey Five” – Madeline, Celeste, Jane, Renata and Bonnie – bond together to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode – and the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.

The stellar cast  in this second season will include: Oscar® and Golden Globe Winner Reese Witherspoon, Emmy®, Golden Globe and Oscar® winner Nicole Kidman, Golden Globe nominee Shailene Woodley, Oscar® nominee, Golden Globe and Emmy® winner Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz, 21-time Oscar® nominee; three-time Oscar® winner, four-time Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy® winner Meryl Streep. Additional cast includes Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation), James Tupper (Revenge), Jeffrey Nordling (Motive) and Douglas Smith (Big Love).

Then, on Monday 10 June at 22:00 CAT, a grim new season of The Handmaid’s Tale starts – season 3 continues to be driven by titular handmaid June, played by Elisabeth Moss. Based on the award-winning, best-selling Margaret Atwood novel of the same name, The Handmaid’s Tale explores a harrowing future in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalist regime that treats women as property of the state.

In season three, we find June’s resistance to the regime taking center stage, after opting not to flee to Canada with her baby at the end of season two. Evermore resolute, our heroine finds that striking back against her oppressors is a struggle she must face against overwhelming odds: there will be startling reunions, betrayals and a journey to the terrifying heart of Gilead which will force all characters to take a stand, guided by one defiant prayer: “Blessed be the fight.”

The critically-acclaimed series stars Golden Globe and Emmy® winner Elisabeth Moss, Golden Globe nominee and Emmy® winner Ann Dowd, Golden Globe and Emmy® nominee Yvonne Strahovski, Emmy® winner Alexis Bledel, Emmy® winner Samira Wiley, SAG nominee Madeline Brewer, Emmy® nominee Joseph Fiennes, SAG nominee O-T Fagbenie, and SAG nominee Max Minghella.
