If you’re subscriber to either or both, you’ll want to read our What to Expect When Paramount+ Becomes Paramount+ with SHOWTIME guide.

This week’s What to Watch picks include the returns of The Witcher and Warrior, new thriller The Horror of Delores Roach, exposé docuseries The Ashley Madison Affair, four weeks of SharkFest, and WWE Money in the Bank pro-wrestling action. Let the summer watch party begin!

What’s premiering this week

Horrors of Delores Roach (Prime Video)

The Horror of Delores Roach | Prime Video | Comedy, horror

Series premiere, Friday, July 7: It’s a TV series based on a podcast that was based on a play called Empanada Loca (mmm, empanadas). In The Horror of Delores Roach, Delores (Justina Machado, One Day at a Time), just out of prison after a 16-year stretch, starts a gig as a masseuse in the basement of her friend’s empanada shop. So what’s her Horror? Just a bit of murder, cannibalism, and creative use of baked goods—you can kinda see where this is going. All eight episodes stream on July 7.

WWE Money in the Bank (Peacock)

WWE Money in the Bank | Peacock | Sports, wrestling

Coverage begins Saturday, July 1: Live from London for the first time in 20 years, it’s WWE Money in the Bank, featuring five furious matches: The Bloodline vs. The Usos, Seth “Freakin’” Rollins vs. Finn Balor, Cody Rhodes vs. Dominik Mysterio, Zelina Vega vs. Becky Lynch vs. Zoey Stark vs. Bayley vs. Iyo Sky vs. Trish Stratus, and Ricochet vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. LA Knight vs. Santos Escobar vs. Butch vs. Damian Priest vs. Logan Paul … whew.

What to watch on Netflix this week

The Witcher (Netflix)

The Witcher | Netflix | Drama, fantasy

Season 3 premiere, Thursday, June 29: Henry Cavill’s final ride as The Witcher finds Geralt (Cavill), Cirilla (Freya Allan), and Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) traveling to Aretuza to lay low and figure out Ciri’s deadly new powers. But, as usual, things don’t quite work out as planned for the threesome. Netflix is dropping five of eight episodes of season 3 in June, with another three coming in July, because … why? Makes about as much sense as replacing Cavill with Liam “Not Chris” Hemsworth next season.

The Out-Laws (Netflix)

The Out-Laws | Netflix | Action, comedy

Movie premiere, Friday, July 7: Uptight bank manager Owen (Adam DeVine) is engaged to be married to Parker (Nina Dobrev), whose parents (Pierce Brosnan and Ellen Barkin) have just arrived in town for the occasion. But, when his bank is robbed during their wedding week, Owen begins to suspect that Parker’s parents are actually the infamous Ghost Bandits heist duo. The Out-Laws also features Michael Rooker, Lil Rel Howrey, DeVine’s Workaholics bud Blake Anderson, and one divinely dropped James Bond joke.

What to watch on Max this week

Ten-Year-Old Tom (Max)

Ten-Year-Old Tom | Max | Animation, comedy

Season 2 premiere, Thursday, July 29: Way back in 2008, animator Steve Dildarian created The Life & Times of Tim, an off-kilter three-season HBO series about luckless mid-20s New Yorker Tim. In 2021, Dildarian returned with Ten-Year-Old Tom, a hilarious new series with the same absurdist sensibilities, this time about a fifth-grader surrounded by clueless adults. Besides Dildarian as the voice of Tom, the show also stars Edi Patterson, Todd Glass, and even John Malkovich. Don’t sleep on Ten-Year-Old Tom.

Warrior (Max)

Warrior | Max | Action, drama

Season 3 premiere, Thursday, July 29: Speaking of cool series you likely weren’t aware of, Warrior debuted in 2019 as CINEMAX’s final original production (BTW, CINEMAX had original productions). In one of the rare smart moves by Warner Bros. Discovery in recent years, the martial-arts period piece was moved to Max for its third season. Set in 1870s San Francisco, Warrior follows Chinese emigrant Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji) searching for his lost sister will evading the local mob; much ass-kicking action ensues.

What to watch on Hulu this week

SharkFest (NatGeo)

SharkFest | NatGeo, Hulu, Disney+ | Special

Season 11 premiere, Sunday, July 2: Sure, Discovery’s Shark Week has been around for three times longer than National Geographic’s SharkFest, but there’s plenty of room in the ocean for more fin-forward programming. Over four weeks, SharkFest will set loose several new specials, including When Sharks Attack: Mayhem in Mexico, When Sharks Attack: The San Francisco Slayer, Shark vs. Tuna, 700 Sharks, Shark Kill Zone, The Whale That Ate Jaws, Big Sharks Rule, and more. Chomp!

The Ashley Madison Affair (Hulu)

The Ashley Madison Affair | Hulu | Documentary

Series premiere, Friday, July 7: Countless dating sites began popping up in the early 2000s, but the notorious Ashley Madison took it to a new level by loudly and proudly catering to the extramarital-affairs market. But, at the height of its popularity in 2015, Ashley Madison was hacked, exposing the identities and secrets of millions of members. If ever there was a salacious topic for a juicy docuseries, this is it. All three episodes of The Ashley Madison Affair will stream on July 7.

W2W wildcards of the week

Hijack (Apple TV+)

Hijack | Apple TV+ | Drama, thriller

Series premiere, Wednesday, June 28: Remember 24, the spy-thriller series that rolled out in actual time over 24 episodes in a season? Hijack gets it done in a fraction of the time: The seven-episode series stars Idris Elba as a business negotiator working to manage a group of terrorists who’ve taken his flight hostage and Archie Punjabi on the ground as a counterterrorism agent. Like 24, Hijack unfolds in real-time, just without the commercial breaks and that annoying clock in the corner. Two episodes drop on June 28.

Moonshine (Freevee)

Moonshine | The CW | Comedy, drama

Series premiere, Friday, July 7: When Lidia (Jennifer Finnigan) arrives from NYC for her aunt’s funeral in Nova Scotia, she finds out she’s inherited The Moonshine, a motley family summer resort on the South Shore. This doesn’t sit well with her estranged half-sister Rhian (Anastasia Phillips), a lifetime local who thinks she should get the resort. Canadian series Moonshine is alternately sweet and scathing, an engaging dramedy with a beautiful backdrop, and also a sign that The CW’s new import strategy just might work.
