Coming Soon to Neon and Sky Go

New seasons of British thrillers Cobra and Temple, and an HBO Max documentary about Brittany Murphy soon will stream on Neon and Sky Go.

S2 of Cobra will premiere on October 16 and the others later this month.

In the former, the Prime MInister’s tenuous grip on power is jeopardised by “a nerve-shredding and disquieting conspiracy” that reduces the UK to chaos in a ‘soft war’ where the identity of the enemy and the purpose of the war are unknown.

Robert Carlyle (Once Upon a Time) and Victoria Hamilton (The Crown) star as the PM and his chief of staff.

Ironically, the writers started S2 before Covid hit but after rejecting the idea of a pandemic for the plot.

According to creator Ben Richards, “One of the crises we considered before Covid was a pandemic but I thought it might be a bit boring – like hundreds of people turning up at hospital and nobody being able to work would be fundamentally undramatic. How wrong I was about that!

“And a major flu crisis in this country would be anti-drama, so shows how much I know.”

S2 of Temple resumes a month on from S1. Reads the blurb: “Daniel desperately tries to keep everything under control but with Lee falling for a fanatical uber-Prepper and Anna luring patients down to the clinic for illegal drug trials, life is only going to get more insane.”

Mark Strong (Kingsman: The Secret Service) and Carice van Houten (Game of Thrones) again star while new to the cast will be Rhys Ifans (The Amazing Spider-ManNotting Hill) as a “dubious and deeply unpredictable medical fixer” and Michael Smiley (Kill List) as his “poetic but frequently inebriated assistant” Dermot.

The first seasons of both dramas can be streamed on Neon and Sky Go, and here’s the trailer for S2 of Temple:

Also new to Neon and Sky Go this month will be the two-part What Happened, Brittany Murphy?.

It’s billed as “an in-depth, intimate character portrait exploring the life and career and mysterious circumstances surrounding the tragic death of ’90s actress and rising star” that promises to go beyond the conspiracy theories and headlines with new interviews and archival footage.
