SBS is thrilled to reveal a collection of highly anticipated world-class drama series coming to the network next month. From reimaginings and reboots to relentless revenge thrillers, SBS continues to bring Australian audiences original, must-see dramas from around the world.
Party of Five
A reimagining of the original cult classic from the 1990s starring Scott Wolf, Matthew Fox, Neve Campbell and Jennifer Love Hewitt. In this new iteration by original series creators Amy Lippman and Christopher Keyser, this beloved story of a young family bound by adversity will be retold through the lens of current-day themes and cultural conversations. Party of Five follows the five Acosta children – Emilio, Lucia, Beto, Valentina and baby Rafa – as they navigate daily life struggles to survive as a family unit after their parents are suddenly deported to Mexico.
Party of Five will air weekly on SBS VICELAND from 8:30pm Friday, 10 April. The entire season will drop at SBS On Demand on Friday, 10 April.
The Good Fight
Put on your power suit because Christine Baranski (The Good Wife) returns in the critically acclaimed series The Good Fight. The fourth season finds Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart navigating a very different landscape. After they lost their biggest client, Chumhum, and their founding partner’s name was tarnished, Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart were forced to accept an offer by a huge multi-national law firm, STR Laurie, to become a small subsidiary. While STR Laurie initially seem like benevolent overlords, Diane Lockhart and her colleagues are chafing at their loss of independence. The Good Fight also stars Cush Jumbo, Audra McDonald, Sarah Steele, Michael Boatman, Nyambi Nyambi, Zach Grenier, John Larroquette and Delroy Lindo. Hugh Dancy has joined season four in a recurring role.
The Good Fight season 4 will not go to air on Thursday, 16 April as previously advertised. It will be coming to SBS in 2020. Keep your eye on SBS Guide for updates.

Comedian Chris Rock joins the fourth season of the Emmy-winning anthology series Fargo.
