Queenie (Dionne Brown) is a Jamaican-British woman living in London getting over a very messy break-up with her boyfriend.

We all know how that typically turns out, so we can expect some great drama and growth from Queenie this summer.

Presumed Innocent Season 1

Another new show on the radar is Presumed Innocent, a limited series based on the book by Scott Turow. Set in Chicago, a gruesome murder starts to unravel the Chicago Prosecuting Attorney’s office because the main suspect is Chief Deputy Prosecutor, Rusty Sabich (Jake Gyllenhaal). This show will get messy and it’s full of politics, family, drama, and obsession.

House of the Dragon Season 2


Max: June 16th

Spin-offs can be a huge hit, which is the case for House of the Dragonthe Game of Thrones-inspired show. Season 2 picks up where the first season left off, which was right in the middle of chaos. One family claims their right to the throne by starting a war and another family must prepare for that war while amidst a huge familial loss. It’s tough to say what we can expect from this season since the show and its predecessor are full of twists and turns, so you’ll have to be ready when those episodes drop.

The Bear Season 3

Yes, chef, we are so excited for season 3 of The Bear to be returning. This Emmy award-winning show picks up after Carmy (Jeremy Allen White) has transformed The Bear from just a local Chicago stand to an upscale dining experience. Tension is high and striving for perfection puts a lot of strain on the restaurant and the people who call it their home and workplace. Season 2 had some explosive and heart-warming moments, so we know what’s on the docket–we just can’t wait to see it.

Lady in the Lake

Apple TV+

Apple TV+: July 19th

Another new show to look out for is Lady in the Lakestarring Natalie Portman. Portman plays Maddie Schwartz, a Jewish housewife who wants to try her chops as an investigative journalist. The show also follows Cleo Sherwood (Moses Ingram) as she provides for her family in Baltimore and the struggles of life for a Black family in Baltimore. Cleo is murdered and she and Maddie’s paths cross as Maddie tries to figure out what happened. Lady in the Lake sounds twisty and turny, so the intrigue is high!
