Good news for Bosch fans with SBS on Demand confirming the 7th and final season is fast-tracked from this Saturday, same day as the US.
There are also a number of other drama titles launching from today.
Welcome To Sweden (Seasons One and Two)
Thursday, 24 June
In English and Swedish with English subtitles. All twenty episodes available to stream
New York City accountant Bruce (Greg Poehler) moves to Sweden in Northern Europe, after falling in love with a Swedish woman named Emma (Josephine Bornebusch). In S2, Emma and Bruce are getting married – hopefully! The new season opens with a proposal, but as the weeks continue the lovebirds and their hilariously bizarre families clash over everything from opposing customs and expectations, to the ultimate in-law face-off over where the nuptials should take place. Meanwhile, Emma is overwhelmed at work resulting in paid time off, whilst Bruce has finally got a new job of his own – fulfilling the unusual requests of American celebrities visiting Stockholm. Will love conquer-all with a wedding that mirrors Bruce and Emma’s imperfectly perfect relationship, or is their cultural divide too wide a gap to be bridged?
Paris Police 1900
Thursday, 24 June
In French with English subtitles. All eight episodes available to stream.
Paris, 1899. The French president Félix Faure has just died. Crippled by the far right, anti-Semitic groups and rising anarchy, France has never appeared so weak. When police chief Louis Lépine (Marc Barbé) is urgently called out of retirement to restore order in Paris, the tragic discovery of a young woman’s torso in a suitcase floating down the Seine, spurs a young, ambitious detective Antoine Jouin (Jérémie Laheurte) into action at the heart of the police headquarters. Joseph Fiersi is a corrupt officer known for blackmail who also moonlights as a hit man for the undercover police. He’s taken a particular interest in this criminal investigation and enlists Meg Steinheil (Evelyne Brochu) the courtesan accused of killing the frail hearted president during sex to work as a spy for him. In Paris, where crime and sin mix with opulence and puritanism, all of these characters will cross paths and join forces to save France. Murders, blackmail, riots, conspiracies, coups – welcome to la Belle Époque.
Thursday, 24 June
In French with English subtitles. All six episodes available to stream.
Jeremy (Pierre Deladonchamps) is a lonely 33-year-old man who lives in Paris. He’s never felt like he belonged to his own time. One night, Jeremy discovers The Wonderland, a club with live music run by a charismatic manager named Tony. Jeremy tries out his luck and becomes a bartender there. Dozens of photos cover the wall, telling the history of the club. But one of them catch Jeremy’s attention – the one of a woman named Alice (Olga Kurylenko) on a beach, taken in Biarritz in 1960. The Wonderland will serve as a gate for Jeremy, who will find himself in Biarritz, in the 1960s. Wonderland tells the story of two people who never should have met and fall in love.
