The weather continues to improve and that’s a great thing for people who have been suffering from cabin fever during this particularly harsh winter. Still, there will be times when you want to just chill on the couch and, fortunately, some great programming is returning to the lineup this month.
One highly anticipated event is the conclusion to Mad Men’s final season. The AMC show will be ending after these last few episodes and, rather than being set in the 60s like the rest of the series, advertisements suggest things will draw to a close in the 70s.
HBO is gearing up for the return of Game of Thrones after a really rough end to last season. The buzz around the show has been especially crazy because, not only are we running out of books upon which to base the series (although, author, George RR Martin did just release a whole chapter about Sansa from an upcoming installment) but the rights to the standalone subscription to HBO Now has become a controversy of its own (it will be available exclusively on Apple TV for the first three months!).
Aside from that, there is a great deal of content to enjoy ranging from new series (Marvel’s Daredevil) to old favorites (Orphan Black). Here’s a look at what’s returning to television this month:
