Read on for TVWise’s pick of the five shows to keep on your radar for the week ahead…

Silicon Valley (Sky Atlantic – Wednesday July 30th, 9pm)

Richard faces yet another hurdle and must negotiate to keep the name of his company when he discovers that there is already a business with the name Pied Piper; meanwhile Erlich, convinced that a new name is needed, embarks on a drug-fuelled quest in the hope of unearthing it.

Sharknado 2: The Second One (Syfy UK – Thursday July 31st, 2:10am)

Syfy UK is airing the sequel to last year’s social media hit within minutes of the US broadcast at 2:10am GMT, before repeating later the same day at 9pm. The movie picks up when a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites – and only Fin and April can save the Big Apple.

Extant (Amazon Prime Instant Video UK – Thursday July 31st)

Halle Berry’s sci-fi drama continues this week with its fourth episode, which sees Molly (Berry) and her family seeking refuge on a remote island with her estranged father Quinn after ISEA Director Alan Sparks (Michael O’Neill) attempts to quarantine Molly.

Scandal (Sky Living – Thursday July 31st, 9pm)

The Kerry Washington fronted political drama returns for its third season, this time on Sky Living instead of More4. In the opening episode of the new season, an unexpected allegiance is formed as Pope & Associates and the White House face their biggest scandal; meanwhile Olivia learns what her father is really capable of.

The Killing (Netflix UK & Ireland – Friday August 1st)

In typical Netflix style, the streaming service is unveiling the complete fourth and final season of the former AMC drama this Friday. In these six new episodes – all of which run close to 52 minutes in length – Detective Linden and Detective Holder struggle to manage the fallout from their rash actions at the end of last season and are assigned a new case: a picture perfect family is murdered, survived only by the son, Kyle Stansbury.
