Starting on January 6, enter the world of La semaine des 4 Julie! Monday to Thursday at 9 pm, Julie Snyder will deploy the various facets of her fresh and quirky personality to offer viewers a daily talk show with interviews, performances, recurring segments, collaborators, surprises, games and contests.

Throughout the season, several renowned collaborators will be joining Julie, including Olivier Niquet, Marie-Lyne Joncas, Arnaud Soly, Mélissa Bédard, Dominic Paquet, Martin Allard, Véronique Claveau and many more! Accompanied by her long-time cohort, Stéphane Laporte, Julie Snyder will continue to amaze Quebec viewers!

For those seeking tender, touching moments, V will be presenting the eighth season of L’amour est dans le pré, Thursday evenings at 8 pm. Marie-Eve Janvier will take viewers to the four corners of the province starting January 16 for privileged access to the most endearing and authentic love stories on Quebec television. Who knows? Maybe this edition will lead to the birth of the show’s 23rd baby! 

Phil Roy will also be back with a second season in a revamped Phil’s’invite (Wednesday 8 pm and 8:30 pm, starting January 15). The congenial comedian will offer viewers a window into the day-to-day lives of Quebec’s favourite artists by showcasing their passions, interests and hobbies.  Segmented into two 30-minute episodes each week, this new formula will offer viewers a glimpse into the daily life of Maire-Mai, Mathieu Baron, Michèle Richard, Julien Lacroix and Laurent Paquin, among others.  

The action is a little more rough and rugged in the second season of Maître du chantier (starting Monday, January 13 at 8 pm). More episodes, more participants but the same high intensity in this captivating construction competition hosted by Patrick Groulx. Again this year, the contestants must successfully complete three individual or collaborative challenges to remain in the adventure: the master challenge, the job site and the one-on-one. The competition will be fierce! 

Weekdays at 6 pm, new episodes from the 10th season of megahit Un souper presque parfait will have the entire family laughing. New locations and themes have been added this year. The show will travel to Quebec City as well as Montreal’s North and South Shores and feature special themed weeks that include construction, bartenders/barmaids, Valentine’s Day, spring break and the very popular viewers choice.

Later this winter, tune in for a fifth season of impressive home transformations on Tout s’embellit avec Julie (starting Tuesday, March 24th at 8 pm). A new addition this year, Julie will help participants create memorable evenings with three special episodes focusing on the art of entertaining. Other television appointments viewers won’t want to miss include new episodes of RPM and RPM+ (starting Sunday, January 19th at 10 am and 11 am) and NVL (Monday to Friday 11:30 pm, Saturday and Sunday 9:30 am). 

Monday through Friday at 10 pm, a diverse slate of popular international television series will complete V’s winter broadcast schedule. In addition to new seasons of NCIS: Los Angeles, Chicago Police and SEAL team: coeur et courage, a wide selection of great films will delight movie lovers! Captain America: le soldat de l’hiver, World War Z, Magic Mike and Sherlock Holmes: le jeu des ombres are a few of the captivating films that V will be presenting this winter.
