This week in streaming: Wall Street conspiracies and British gang wars

Don your detective hat for a week of crime-filled TV.

After dishing out three jam-packed weeks of fresh entertainment, March is finally shifting down a gear with the latest batch of new releases hitting Aussie streaming services over the next seven days.

Netflix delivers the largest line-up this week, kicking things off with the return of the British crime series Peaky Blinders. In its fourth season, the grim drama sees Tommy Shelby leave his crime-capering family behind and attempt to establish himself as a legitimate businessman. His dreams are foiled when a curious letter arrives detailing a plot against his family, and Shelby must venture back into the shady underworld to save his kin.

A different kind of underworld exposes itself on Stan this week. Billions, the drama series fictionalising the sleazy schemes of various hedge-fund managers and money moguls during the 1990s, enters its fourth season with a fresh take on its regular formula. This time around, series anti-hero Bobby Axelrod (played by Damian Lewis) finds himself on the other side of the law, helping US attorney Charles Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) take down his former allies.

If financial fraud is a little too mundane for your liking, Foxtel has you sorted. The SyFy adventure series Aftermath drops onto the service this week, imagining a world ravaged by relentless natural disasters, exploitative survivors and a new breed of supernatural beings capable of possessing unwitting humans. Amidst this post-apocalyptic nightmare, the Copeland family sets off across America in the hopes of finding salvation.

The last big new release for this week comes by way of SBS On Demand. Pagan Peak is a German-language thriller that begins when a meticulously-arranged body is discovered in the Alps at the border of Germany and Austria. In response, detectives from each country partner up to uncover the mystery at the heart of the suspicious murder. As they dig deeper into Pagan rituals and Alpine traditions, the pair run the risk of becoming the very darkness they pursue.

Take a look at the highlights of this week's new streaming releases below. For a complete schedule of upcoming programming, check out our list of everything coming to Aussie streaming services in March 2019.
