Release Date: June 4 on HBO/Max
She just wants to be the sexiest pop star in America, is that too much to ask? Co-created by Euphoria’s Sam Levinson as well as Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye and Reza Fahim, The Idol follows pop star Jocelyn (Depp) after she suffers a nervous breakdown following her recent tour. She doesn’t just want to be a sensation, she wants to be idolized and obsessed over by her fans. As a result of her panic, her tour is put on pause. She then falls in with the mysterious Tedros (Tesfaye), a nightclub owner who takes her under his toxic wing. Something smells like a cult. The Idol, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, also stars Rachel Sennott, Hank Azaria, Dan Levy, and Troye Sivan.
Based on a True Story
Release Date: June 8 on Peacock
So, um, America is kind of obsessed with murder? Yeah, true crime, murder, serial killers, documentaries, podcasts about the subject, you name it. We just can’t seem to get enough. Well, neither can Based on a True Story’s Ava (Cuoco), a former realtor who’s been hooked on the story of a serial killer that’s basically in her backyard. After a series of outlandish events take place around them and opportunities arise, she and her cautious husband Nathan (Messina) decide to monetize their love of true crime.
The Crowded Room
Release Date: June 9 on Apple TV+
He’s got some blank spots, but can we figure out what’s missing? Tom Holland, best known for playing the typically-chipper Spidey, goes dark in The Crowded Room. The true crime limited series set in 1979 in Manhattan follows Holland’s Danny Sullivan, a young, allegedly-innocent man who’s been arrested for a horrific crime but doesn’t quite remember what happened. Does it have to do with the mysterious man that protected him from those bullies? What if it happens again? Investigator Rya (Amanda Seyfried) is determined to get all the answers.
The Full Monty
Release Date: June 14 on Hulu
Well, sure, they’re older. But are they wiser? Based on the characters and world from the 1997 British comedy The Full Monty, about steelworkers who turn to male stripping to make ends meet, the new Hulu series of the same name picks up 25 years later in present-day Sheffield. Gaz (Robert Carlyle), Dave (Mark Addy), and Gerald (Tom Wilkinson) haven’t necessarily changed, but the city certainly has. Sheffield is suffering from education, employment, and healthcare woes, but it’s nothing the original crew can’t fix (or try to fix) with a little smile and shenanigans.
I’m a Virgo
Release Date: June 23 on Prime Video
What’s your sign? From the creative, compelling, and sharp mind of Boots Riley, the artist behind the inventive film Sorry to Bother You comes the new Prime Video series I’m a Virgo. The absurdist-style comedy tells the quite peculiar story of Cootie (Jharrel Jerome) a 13-foot-tall Black man navigating his unconventional existence in Oakland, California. He forms unlikely friendships, including with his idol and real-life superhero The Hero (Walton Goggins). The world was ready for him, but is he ready to take on the world? The series, which premiered at SXSW Film Festival, is described as a “mythical odyssey.”
Release Date: June 28 on Apple TV+
Ooh, it’s time for some sky-high thrills and chills. Emmy nominee Idris Elba leads the way in Hijack, a British series that is sure to make you uneasy as you board your next flight. Created by George Kay and Jim Field Smith, the thriller series follows each hour of a hijacked flight from Dubai to London, as passenger Sam (Elba) tries to use his business negotiating skills to land a deal with the hijackers.
The Walking Dead: Dead City
Release Date: June 18 on AMC/AMC+
Okay, it’s pretty safe to assume that no one expected these two to end up in a show together. In yet another spin-off of the flagship series The Walking Dead comes The Walking Dead: Dead City. Former (and kind of still?) enemies Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) team up and take on post-apocalyptic Manhattan. Maggie is determined to find Hershel (Logan Kim), her son with the late Glenn (Steven Yeun) who was kidnapped. It’s a bit ironic that Negan, who is responsible for bashing in Glenn’s skull with his barbwire bat Lucille is now helping Maggie, but if there’s anything The Walking Dead shows us, it’s that people change over time (and not just into walkers).
Release Date: June 21 on Disney+
This time, it’s personal. The latest Marvel series on Disney+ might be its most star-studded one yet. Samuel L. Jackson reprises his now-iconic role of Nick Fury on the small screen for Secret Invasion. Created by Kyle Bradstreet, the dark drama series follows Fury as he works with Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) to unravel a conspiracy involving Skrulls sneaking into positions of power and taking over Earth. The impressive cast continues with Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, and Don Cheadle.
