Are you a fan of the British crime show Sherlock but can’t wait for another couple of years before new episodes from season five come out? Well, fret not, because another series based on the famous sleuth is now showing on HBO Asia and Hulu – but the twist is that it features female versions of Sherlock and Watson and is set in Japan. Miss Sherlock began airing on 27 April, and the first two episodes of the eight-part series have seen the detective solve mysteries in Tokyo involving death by exploding stomach and an art vandal.
2017 already saw the return of popular TV shows such as “Twin Peaks”, “Prison Break” and “Star Trek”. Taiwanese producer Angie Chai, who helmed the original 2001 drama, announced that a 48-episode reboot is slated for release in 2018. According to Mingpao, Chai shared that she wanted to bring “Meteor Garden” back on the small screen after the popular manga’s creator completed the whole story.
