What’s on TV Sunday: ‘Back to Life’ and ‘Rick and Morty’

BACK TO LIFE 10 p.m. on Showtime. When Miri Matteson (Daisy Haggard) re-emerges in her isolated seaside hometown after spending 18 years in prison for a violent crime, it’s her secretive past, and that of those around her, that come to the fore. Across the new show’s six episodes, it becomes clear that “the people she’s closest to, including her mother, Caroline (Geraldine James), her former best friend, Mandy (Christine Bottomley), and the affable new neighbor, Billy (Adeel Akhtar), are harboring secrets that start to make her own past transgression look tolerable,” Mike Hale writes in his New York Times review. This series, which Haggard created and helped write, has already drawn comparisons to “Fleabag” — another female-led British show that shares the executive producers Harry and Jack Williams and has a similar focus on dark humor, grief and redemption.

DUBLIN MURDERS 8 p.m. on Starz. Like the latest season of “True Detective,” this procedural experiments with multiple timelines to examine how a past crime may have influenced a murder in the present. Sarah Greene stars as the Dublin police detective Cassie Maddox, and Killian Scott plays her partner, Detective Rob Reilly, a charismatic investigator who’s reinvented himself after a traumatic childhood. But Reilly’s shadowy past resurfaces when a young girl is found dead at an archaeological site near Knocknaree — the same town from which three children went missing 21 years earlier.
