What’s new on TV this week

The Boys (Prime Video)

The Boys | Prime Video | Drama, fantasy

Season 4 premiere, Thursday, June 13: When last we left The Boys two years ago, sinister “hero” Homelander (Antony Starr) was on top, his nemesis Butcher (Karl Urban) was terminal thanks to the Temp V superpower serum, and Victoria Nuemann (Claudia Doumit) ramped up her rise to political power. TV’s wildest superhero series isn’t taking the foot off the gas in season 4, as Jeffery Dean Morgan, Rosemarie DeWitt, and some new Supes join the cast. Three of eight new episodes drop on June 13.

WWE Clash at the Castle 2024 (Peacock)

WWE Clash at the Castle | Peacock | Sports, wrestling

Coverage begins Saturday, June 15, 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET: Live from Glasgow, Scotland, it’s the 2024 WWE Clash at the Castle, featuring bonafide Scots Drew McIntyre and Piper Niven vying to rip away the championship belts from Damian Priest and Bayley, respectively. Other bouts on the card include Cody Rhodes vs. A.J. Styles, Logan Paul vs. L.A. Knight vs. Carmelo Hayes, Solo Sikoa vs. Kevin Owens, Sheamus vs. Ludwig Kaiser, Gunther vs. Randy Orton, and Ilja Drago vs. Ricochet vs. Bron Breakker. Keep the heid!

What to watch on Netflix this week

Godzilla Minus One (2023)

Godzilla Minus One | Netflix | Drama, sci-fi

Movie, now streaming: Netflix dropped Godzilla Minus One in the dead of night last week with zero fanfare, and it quickly shot to the top of the streamer’s charts. Who needs press? While the current American-made Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire is no slouch, 2023’s Toho-produced Godzilla Minus One is easily the apex of ‘Zilla cinema. It’s a raging WWII-era masterpiece that relies more on old-school film techniques than overly slick CGI. Dubbed English dialogue is available, but don’t do that.

How I Met Your Mother (Netflix)

How I Met Your Mother | Netflix | Comedy

Series, now streaming: The CBS comedy that ruled Monday nights from 2005 to 2014 finally arrived on Netflix this month—if you’ve never seen How I Met Your Mother, your 208-episode summer binge-watch awaits. It probably won’t become this year’s Suits (what a retro Netflix phenomenon that was), and there are funnier Friends-formula shows from the time (like Happy Endings, a 2011–2013 comedy streaming now on Hulu), but How I Met Your Mother rightfully earned its spot in sitcom history. Suit up!

What to watch on Max this week

Hannah Einbinder Everything Must Go (Max)

Hannah Einbinder: Everything Must Go | Max | Comedy

Standup special, Thursday, June 13: You know her as Ava from Max’s Hacks, but unless you happened to catch her 2019 TV standup debut on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, you probably don’t know that actress Hannah Einbinder is also a comedian. In her first full-length special, Everything Must Go, Einbinder reflects on her queerness, her chronic stoner past, and her parents’ desperate wish for a boy—all comedy-gold material. Deborah Vance might wince at some of these quips, however.

House of the Dragon (HBO)

House of the Dragon | HBO, Max | Drama, fantasy

Season 2 premiere, Sunday, June 16: It’s only been two years since the first season of House of the Dragon premiered—in the Game of Thrones universe, that’s what we call a “quick turnaround.” The century-before GoT prequel required some disorienting time-jumping to set up its story, but season 2 of House of the Dragon promises more narrative stability, bigger battles, fresh scenery, and, of course, dragons galore. Olivia Cooke, Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, and Tom Glynn-Carney all return, as well.

Hotel Cocaine (MGM+)

Hotel Cocaine | MGM+ | Drama

Series premiere, Sunday, June 16: In the late 1970s, Cuban exile Roman Compte (Danny Pino) manages Miami’s Mutiny Hotel and nightclub, a hotspot for celebrities, politicians, and businessmen, not to mention international drug dealers and the Feds tracking them. Hotel Cocaine comes from the creator/producer of Narcos, but the setting is far more glamorous and populated with disco dancers. Bonus: The Shield’s Michael Chiklis is back in cop mode, replete with a sweet ’70s mustache.

77th Tony Awards (CBS)

The 77th Tony Awards | CBS, Paramount+ | Awards

Special, Sunday, June 16: Ariana DeBose returns for her third stint as host of the Tony Awards, which will feature live performances from the Broadway musicals Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club, Hell’s Kitchen, Illinois, Merrily We Roll Along, The Outsiders, Suffs, Water for Elephants, and The Who’s Tommy. For fully invested theater nerds (you know who you are), there will also be a pregame show on Pluto TV, The Tony Awards: Act One, hosted by Julianne Hough (Dancing With the Stars) and Utkarsh Ambudkar (Ghosts).

I Saw the TV Glow (2024)

I Saw the TV Glow (2024)

In the ’90s, a pair of suburban teenagers bond over a supernatural late-night TV drama, The Pink Opaque. But then, reality is upended, and they become part of the show and are terrorized by its villain, Mr. Melancholy. Or is the show their reality, making their “real” lives a lie? Writer/director Jane Shoenbrun (We’re All Going to the World’s Fair) presents a singular if disorienting vision with I Saw the TV Glow, so much so that Fred Durst—yes, the frontman of Limp Bizkit—playing a bad dad isn’t even the weirdest part.
