    1. Chucky S3 episode 1 is on 9Now already
      They will drop 6pm AEDST each Thursday for the first 4 episodes of this season the 2nd 4 episodes will be in 2024 due to the strikes in US they only finished filming the first 4 episodes

  1. Thank you David.. you a such real reliable source of information….I love all the British shows and Brokenwood Mysteries on Gem….even at my age I like a bit of Young Sheldon (which I noticed S6 is beginning on Foxtel on 8th)…you put so much effort in it’s much appreciated.

  2. Thanks for the update. In regards to 9 life I’m wondering whatever happened to Barnwood Builders and Maine Cabin Masters. I know they’re new seasons and we haven’t seen them all year!?

  3. So that’s where The Chelsea Detective went. Maybe Gem will finally show a S2 of something new. They’ve been listing Queens Of Mystery since 2021 and still no sign of S2. Hopefully it’s S6 of Young Sheldon.

  4. I am currently watching Madam Secretary on 9Gem having missed it years ago and it is quite a good, but not great, drama.

    However, I have to dive into the 9Now streaming service to catch the first dozen or so episodes that I missed on the FTA channel. If I don’t turn into a gambling addict by the time I finally catch up, then it won’t be for a lack of gambling related ads on 9Now – overwhelming.
