Code 404 Season 3

Code 404 - Series 02 - Key Art (JPEG)

In the third season of the futuristic crime-fighting comedy series Code 404, DI John Major (Daniel Mays) and DI Roy Carver (Stephen Graham) reunite - but tensions remain high. 

When a police officer is murdered, Carver is hell-bent on solving the case. But it’s bigger than they thought... a twisted serial killer whose sights are now set on them.

Code 404 season 3 follows the huge success of the first two series, with the second series becoming the biggest season launch in the history of the Sky Comedy channel, while the first series of Code 404 was Sky’s fastest binged original comedy boxset ever.

Stream every episode of Code 404 season 3 on Sky Comedy with NOW from Thursday 4 August. Stream Code 404 seasons 1-2 now. 

House of the Dragon Season 1

Set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones, House of the Dragon finds the Targaryens ruling over the Seven Kingdoms - and on the brink of a civil war within their own house.

Prior to the birth of a son, King Viserys sent shockwaves through the kingdom and declared his daughter, Rhaenyra, his heir. But once a healthy boy entered the picture, plans were afoot to make sure she would never sit on the Iron Throne.

Now, with schemes hatched on both sides - and the kingdom in the balance - viewers will see the house that dragons built and learn how they tore it all down. 

House of the Dragon will recount the complex history of the Targaryen family: introducing them at the height of their greatness and power and then dramatizing their fall.

Stream House of the Dragon season 1 weekly from Monday 22 August on Sky Atlantic with NOW.

There isn't too long to wait for more dragons, fire and bloody battles as Game of Thrones prequel House of the Dragon arrives this month.
