What to watch on Netflix this week


Supacell | Netflix | Drama

Series premiere, Thursday, June 27: In this grounded superhero drama, one man must assemble a group of Black South Londoners to save the love of his life. British rapper and screenwriter Rapman wrote, directed, and produced the series.


A Family Affair | Netflix | Comedy, romance

Movie premiere, Friday, June 28: We come to the movies to laugh. To cry. To care. And to seduce Zac Efron. Joey King plays an embarrassed daughter whose mom (Nicole Kidman) starts dating her self-absorbed boss, a famous movie star (Zac Efron). It’s a movie that’ll have you thinking, wait, are they the same age? Have I gotten super old? (You haven’t; Efron is 20 years younger than Kidman. But he is old enough to be playing dads now.)

What to watch on Hulu this week

The Bear (Hulu)

The Bear | Hulu | Drama, comedy

Season 3 premiere, Wednesday, June 26: Is it a comedy? Is it a drama? It doesn’t matter, because this intense show about a Chicago restaurant is back with 10 hot and fresh episodes. If you’re wondering why everyone’s been crazy about Jeremy Allen White and Ayo Edbiri for the past couple of years, you should give it a watch.

An anime version of Harley Quinn.

Suicide Squad ISEKAI | Hulu | Anime, comedy

Series premiere, Thursday, June 27: It was only a matter of time before Harley Quinn got her own anime. This new animated show, produced by the studio behind Attack on Titan and Spy x Family, follows Harley and friends as they get transported (or isekai’d, as the anime nerds say) into a magical world. And no, we don’t know why it’s not on Max, either.

What to watch on Apple TV+ this week


Land of Women (Tierra de Mujeres) | Apple TV+ | Comedy, drama

Limited series premiere, Wednesday, June 26: When Gala (Eva Longoria) drags her mother and daughter to Spain with her, it’s under the guise of a family bonding trip. But she’s really on the run from loan sharks after her husband fell into deep debt (and off the face of the map). Can she keep her family safe, or will she get distracted by the cute guy she accidentally hit with her car?


WondLa | Apple TV+ | Animation, family, sci-fi

Series premiere, Friday, June 28: Tony DeTerlizzi’s The Search for WondLa is getting an animated adaptation after 14 years. It’s about Eva, the last human living in a bunker far below the Earth’s surface. It’s definitely giving Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts vibes.

My Lady Jane | Prime Video | Comedy, drama, fantasy

Series premiere, Thursday, June 27: My Lady Jane, based on the YA novel of the same name, dares to ask the question: what if Lady Jane Grey’s life hadn’t been cut so short by political machinations? In this version of history, Jane isn’t executed as a teenager but instead embarks on a journey filled with daggers, cute boys, and f-bombs. This not-quite-historical story will definitely be a hit with fans of The Great and Dickinson.

An anime boy with messy black hair scowls at a man with feathers and a large nose.

The Boy and the Heron | VOD | Animation, fantasy

New movie, Tuesday, June 25: This fantastical story about childhood grief might be Hayao Miyazaki’s final film. But then again, it might not. Either way, we’ll be watching this long-awaited Studio Ghibli film the second it hits VOD storefronts.
