The highly and widely anticipated season will be the last of the series and the ending is so important to fans who have been questioning who will sit on the iron throne once and for all?

'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' Part 2
The return of the witching hour was on April 5, 2019, and darkness has never looked so appealing. The aftermath of Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) signing her name into the Book of the Beast witnessed her embracing her half-witch nature more than her mortal one. In fact, the discovery of her dark powers also conjured the Dark Lord himself as he took his angelic form as Lucifer Morningstar (Luke Cook), disclosing a revolutionary secret. Love was in the cards for both Sabrina and Harvey, but not with each other. The upcoming installment sounds all the more intriguing as Sabrina and her mortal friends are set to embark on a journey to hell.
Netflix will drop 'Chambers' on April 26, which revolves around two grieving parents (Uma Thurman, Tony Goldwyn) as they track down the teenage girl who was the recipient of their deceased daughter’s heart. The heartbroken parents start giving the teenage girl, Sasha (Sivan Alyra Rose), all the fine luxuries, from fine clothes to a car and a full scholarship to an elite private school. However, Sasha is weirded out and as she digs deep to find out why, strange things start happening. She starts hearing 'The Stone Roses' playing when the radio’s not on and she becomes ambidextrous.
Come April 19, we are going to meet Ramy Hassan, a man who is going to die alone. Ramy’s mother wants him to try going out with women they meet at their local mosque in New Jersey. His friends point out that he is running out of options; "There are only two hot Muslim girls left in town." However, Ramy is dating a Jewish woman. The show's creator and star, Ramy Youssef, said the story is loosely based on his own experiences as a first-generation Egyptian-American.
Fishnets, hats, and heartbreaks took center stage on April 9, when 'Fosse/Verdon' premiered. Exploring the real-life relationship between filmmaker/choreographer Bob Fosse and dancer Gwen Verdon, the TV adaptation of 2013's biography 'Fosse' mainly focuses on the romantic and professional relationship between the two powerhouses. Fosse won eight Tony awards throughout his career as a choreographer. He also won an Oscar for directing the film adaptation of the musical 'Cabaret,' starring Liza Minnelli. Verdon was one of the most celebrated dancers in Broadway history in the '50s, '60s, and '70s, earning four Tony awards throughout her career. Verdon and Fosse were married from 1960 to 1971 and that's basically the starting premise of the show.
