April is almost here, and that means we have another great month of BritBox premieres to look forward to – including a new season of the Death in Paradise spin-off Beyond Paradise

Don't have a BritBox subscription? You can sign up HERE on their website or HERE on Amazon Video. Both options offer the same content, but some people find one or the other offers better compatibility with their devices or internet service provider.

Sometimes, there's a brief delay for new shows to arrive on the Prime version of the channel – so if you're the kind of person who's at home a lot and really wants to see every show immediately, we recommend going direct (even if it means buying a Roku or similar device to get it on your TV).

New British TV Shows on BritBox (US) in April 2024

QI returns April 1st

QI, Season U

This quirky quiz show deals primarily in obscure trivia, meaning the correct answer is almost never given. In lieu of a correct answer, contestants earn points for offering interesting but incorrect answers – so long as they don't make guesses which are both wrong AND obvious. No one really understands the point system, though.

Each season is oriented around a single letter, and the new season will feature episodes with U themes.

Lovejoy comes to BritBox April 22nd

Lovejoy, Seasons 1 & 2 (1986 to 1994)

Lovejoy (Ian McShane, American Gods) is a divvy – a person with an abnormal level of skill when it comes to recognising valuable or antique items. Despite his natural talents, he struggles to maintain an honest and profitable business, and he always seems to be pulling one over on someone or trying to get out of trouble. He's accompanied in his adventures by his assistant, Eric Catchpole (Chris Jury), his good friend Tinker (Dudley Sutton), and Lady Jane Felsham (Phyllis Logan, Downton Abbey).

  • Season 1 premieres April 22nd
  • Season 2 premieres April 22nd (this was listed later in the schedule, so there's a chance it could be a typo that was meant to list a later date, like the 27th or 28th – but we're just going with what they said until we hear otherwise)

The new season begins with a Christmas special that sees Britain experiencing its worst winter on record, with Sister Boniface stranded in a train when a jewel theft and murder occur on board. Other episodes include the murder of an organist, a sci-fi convention with a mysterious disappearance, and a dead actor at a screen test. Meanwhile, Felix is dealing with a bit of personal turmoil.
