The year’s buzziest show, ‘Killing Eve,’ and the new season of ‘Ray Donovan’ coming to CraveTV
KILLING EVEOctober 5
We keep hoping that Sandra Oh will reprise her role as Cristina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy, but now we have Killing Eve to quench our Oh thirst. The Canadian actor made history this year by becoming the first Asian actor nominated for a lead role at the Emmys thanks to her turn as MI5 agent Eve Polastri. Bored with her desk job, Eve goes rogue to uncover a famous assassin named Villanelle, with the two women becoming obsessed with one another. It’s dark, it’s sexy, it’s brilliant, it’s Oh so good.BRAVO
RAY DONOVAN, SEASON 6New episodes every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET starting October 28
Ray Donovan doesn’t want to be Ray Donovan anymore. In Season 6, we find the ‘professional fixer,’ played by Liev Schreiber, starting his life over in New York, or more appropriately, trying to end his life in New York. After being rescued from a suicide attempt by a NYPD cop, Ray finds a brotherhood with the boys in blue, but gets pulled back into his old world by Sam Winslow (Susan Sarandon) and his ailing father (Jon Voight). Maybe he should have thrown his old cell phone into the East River instead of himself. Seasons 1 to 5 are available now on CraveTV.SHOWTIME
KIDDINGNew episodes every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET
Jim Carrey the artist continues to delve deeper into avant garde roles that take him further away from Jim Carrey the comedian. In SHOWTIME’s Kidding, Carrey returns to TV and reunites with his Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry to play Jeff, a children’s TV show host who begins to unravel as his family implodes around him. Is that really you, Ace Ventura?SHOWTIME
GAYCATION, SEASON 1October 12
The brainchild of director Spike Jonze and Canadian actor Ellen Page, Gaycation stars Page and her friend Ian Daniel as they find out what it means to be gay in different countries. From the ambiguous attitude towards the gay community in Japan, to Brazil, the country with the highest LGBTQ murder rate, Page and Daniel find stories of hope and perseverance from those who have been shunned by society simply for who they are. Plus, there’s an episode where Page tells off Ted Cruz in front of a group of his supporters. It’s amazing.VICELAND

VICE PRINCIPALS, SEASONS 1 AND 2October 19
If you’re looking for a feel-good show about adults making a positive impact in the lives of school children, Vice Principals isn’t it. The brainchild of Eastbound and Down creators Jody Hill and Danny McBride, HBO’s dark comedy stars McBride and Walton Goggins as two vice principals gunning for the big office when their long-time principal, played by Bill Murray, steps down. The kids are alright, but the adults are out of control. HBO

To celebrate Canada’s legalization of marijuana on October 17, CraveTV is expanding its 420 Collection with High Maintenance.

MOST EXPENSIVEST, SEASON 1October 12
Would you pay $600 for a cup of coffee made from cat poop? Would you buy a $90,000 ugly Christmas sweater? How about a $48,000 pair of vintage sunglasses? Rapper 2 Chainz isn’t about to open his wallet for these outrageous items, but he will travel the world (first class, of course) and bring Viceland’s cameras along for the ride to show us how the other half lives. And by ‘half’ we mean the 1 per cent of people who can afford $165,000 kittens. Adopt, don’t shop.VICELAND
It’s often inspiring to hear origin stories from people at the top of their field. They usually include a long list of failures, which is the case with Oscar-winning director Steven Spielberg. In the HBO documentary Spielberg, the famed director talks about his many setbacks on the way to movie history, with interviews from his peers and starring actors, including Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio and Liam Neeson, helping to set the scene of the man who changed cinema.HBO
THE CIRCUS: INSIDE THE WILDEST POLITICAL SHOW ON EARTHNew episodes every Sunday at 10 p.m. ET
In 2018, the political landscape is sadly stranger than fiction. We wish it was fake news. The Circus: Inside the Wildest Political Show on Earth is back (Seasons 1-3 available now on CraveTV) with nine new episodes that follow the latest developments in the Trump administration, with Season 4 premiering just in time to get viewers caught up for the mid-term elections. We can’t believe there are only nine episodes. There’s enough content for a daily telenovela style show.SHOWTIME
THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFULNew episodes every Tuesday.
Speaking of daily shows, CraveTV is boldly going where it has never gone before. No, not Star Trek, (we’ve gone there a ton). CraveTV is expanding into the world of soap operas and adding The Bold and the Beautiful to its line-up, with episodes available one week after airing on broadcast. Now there’s no need to worry about getting behind on your stories.CBS
