Continuing British TV Shows on Acorn TV in February 2023
Under the Vines, Season 2 (2022 to present)
This light romantic drama begins with a Sydney socialite who learns she's inherited a New Zealand winery from her recently deceased stepfather. She heads over for a short vacation to check it out before selling up, only to learn she has a co-owner – a grumpy British lawyer who had hoped to take refuge in the winery after a series of unfortunate personal events.
While they don't like each other and neither of them have any experience, they'll have to work together to make it successful if they want to get a good price. In season two, we'll see them continuing to make a go of it – and maybe even getting along once in a while.
- February 6th – Episodes 5-6 (FINALE)

Bloodlands, Season 2
James Nesbitt returns as DCI Tom Brannick in a second season of this twisty crime drama, executive produced by Jed Mercurio (Line of Duty). This time around, he's pulled into a desperate hunt for a treasure that's been hidden since the days of Goliath.
The murder of a crooked accountant has helped to unravel clues that could potentially expose the true identity of the assassin code-named Goliath. Between Tom and redemption stands the accountant's widow Olivia (Victoria Smurfit), whose intentions may not be entirely innocent. They'll scheme together, collaborating so long as their intentions are aligned.
As their efforts go on, Tom's fellow officers DS Niamh McGovern (Charlene McKenna, Ripper Street), DCS Jackie Twomey (Lorcan Cranitch, Cracker) and DC “Birdy” Bird (Chris Walley), as well as his daughter, Izzy (Lola Pettigrew) will be drawn into the mystery.
