Please note that the US broadcasters are currently making impromptu scheduling changes as a result of current affairs and events in the country. As M-Net and M-Net Edge are screening these series close to their U.S. broadcasts, there will be unforeseen changes on our schedules in addition to previously communicated changes. We will keep our viewers updated on our online and social media platforms.
More About Production Breaks
Popular US series on M-Net and M-Net Edge continue to entertain viewers via Express from the US. Mirroring US schedules means that people can watch their favourites very close to the US, with no spoilers, no waiting and within 24 hours of the US airing. While the channels always want our viewers to be on top of the #conversation, there are always annual production breaks in the latter part of the year.
Production breaks are when viewers’ favourite TV shows take a break on-air in the US: this means there will be no new episodes broadcast on M-Net (ch.101) or M-Net Edge (ch.102) —not forever, just for a little while.
While there are some exceptions to the rule, the US production breaks usually vary between one and three weeks. When these series’ return to television screens, viewers will once again be able to watch a brand new episode every week.
Should the production break last between one to two weeks, the channel (M-Net or M-Net Edge) will repeat previous episodes. When production breaks go on for more than two weeks, a replacement show will be scheduled on the channels.
Below is a list of series that will be taking a break in the next few months:
- A brand new episode of The Great Indoors will be replacing The Goldbergs Season 4 while the show is on a production break. New episodes of The Goldbergs Season 4 resume on Thursday 4 May at 18:00).
- Season 4 will go on a one-week production break from Tuesday 7 March at 18:00 and will be replaced by a previous episode. New episodes will resume on Tuesday 14 March at 18:00. Thereafter, Mom will go on an extended production break from Tuesday 21 March at 18:00.

- Season 3 will go on a production break on Monday 6 February. New Madam Secretary episodes will resume on Monday 29 May at 21:30.
Season 6 will return on 3 May at 20:30.
When Blue Bloods returns from its production break the show will no longer be broadcast Express from the US. This means that the usual Express slot will fall away. In recent weeks several prime time international series on M-Net took unexpected production breaks. Consequently, some series will now end on a later date than originally planned and these unforeseen changes also impacted our Express from the US service.
