The Boys: Season 2 Finale – Friday, October 9

Everyone has been watching this show this year, with the misbehaving superheroes getting closer to being caught out by the public for their misdeeds. If the ending to the first season is anything to go by, then the huge finale for Season 2 will be sure to leave us on one hell of a cliffhanger.

Truth Seekers – Friday, October 30

Nick Frost and Simon Pegg – stars of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End – reunite in this comedy-horror about a broadband installer with a sideline in capturing evidence of ghosts for his YouTube channel.
