This month, the best series on NOW TV are set to hit the subscription platform. We're talking Paul Mescal back on our screens as his own self plus the holy alliance of Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant in a brand new series. Yes, really.

In October, NOW TV has a bunch of new TV series to binge as well as old favourites like Billions season five finally returning. We can't decide what we're most looking forward to: new crime drama The Undoing (not just because it stars Kidman and Grant together but because it's directed by Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelly), or Portrait Artist of the Year - mostly because we'll get to see Paul Mescal sit for a portrait in Sky's flagship arts competition.

That's not all NOW TV has to offer, as well as all of the amazing series starting this month listed below, you can get NOW TV passes to Sky Cinema - which this month features a range of must-watch movies celebrating Black History Month - Sky Sports and Hayu (the reality TV lovers dream subscription service).

So, whether you've been patiently waiting for another series of Riveria with Julia Stiles or you're after a new show to binge, check out what's new on NOW TV below and you're guaranteed to find a something to make lockdown a whole lot easier.

These are the best series on NOW TV this October...
