Thanks Portia.

As this is the first May thread I presume in this case that "update" doesn't mean any scheduling details are missing from this one.

Thanks @Optimist, wanted to have it just as May highlights and decided against it. There are some shows that were scheduled to start or end on different dates and since these shows were already on our TV guide I then chose to say highlights and updates. Will also now add the synopses for the show you have highlighted.

Afaik, Blacklist went on a production break in Feb and has resumed in the US a week ago with episodes 16 to 18 having aired. Redemption was a filler.

Hallo Citanul, correct just awaiting confirmation. From what I see Broadchurch will take two week broadcast break because Twin Peaks will air at 21:30 and 22:30 (23 May and 30 May). Will update as soon as I have confirmed.
