Stranger Things 

Season 4, Volume 2 now on Netflix 
The last two episodes of Season 4 will pick up after the stunning revelation of Vecna's true identity, as the Hawkins crew tries to stop him from killing more teenagers and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) works to regain her powers so she can defeat him once and for all. But we just want to hang out with our new buddy Eddie (Joseph Quinn) some more! -Liam Mathews [Trailer]

Chris Pratt, The Terminal List

Chris Pratt, The Terminal List

Amazon Studios

The Terminal List

Now on Amazon Prime Video 
Chris Pratt stars in this hybrid conspiracy/revenge thriller that features the most unspeakable use of a hatchet this side of Blood Meridian. He plays James Reece, a Navy SEAL on a mission to punish the people responsible for killing the other members of his unit. There's a conspiracy behind it, but he doesn't care too much about the why. He mostly just cares about the how he's going to kill everyone. It's a well-made if cliched action show that fits in well with Amazon's other tough guy offerings like Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan and Reacher. -Liam Mathews [Trailer | Review]

The Bad Guys

The Bad Guys

DreamWorks

The Bad Guys

Now on Peacock
The biggest animated movie of 2022 so far comes to Peacock after a successful theatrical run. The good-natured comedy is about a gang of anthropomorphic animals with bad reputations — a wolf, a shark, a snake, a tarantula, and a piranha — who decide to stop being bad and start being good. The voice cast includes Sam Rockwell, Marc Maron, and Awkwafina, and it has a really cool, Into the Spiderverse-influenced animation style. -Liam Mathews [Trailer]

Big Brother

Season 24 premieres Wednesday, July 6 at 8/7c on CBS
What is there to say about the reality show juggernaut that airs three nights a week from July until September? Big Brother (and its 24-hour live feed) is back for its 24th season of colorful competitions, alliances, betrayals, and taking the wrong lesson from George Orwell. If you like Big Brother, your whole summer is set now. -Kelly Connolly

Maggie

Series premiere Wednesday, July 6 on Hulu
If you feel like you've met Maggie before, you're not psychic. This show has just been in limbo for a while. The rom-com series was originally scheduled to air on ABC in the 2021-2022 season before moving to Hulu, where it's dropping every episode at once on July 6. Rebecca Rittenhouse stars as Maggie, a psychic who gets a glimpse of her own romantic future — with a man who turns out to be dating someone else. That's so not Raven. -Kelly Connolly [Trailer]

Moonhaven

Series premiere Thursday, July 7 on AMC+
I regret to inform you that AMC+ might be having a moment. The streaming platform has already premiered a couple of well-reviewed series this year (This Is Going to Hurt and Dark Winds), and Moonhaven seems like it'll be an intriguing addition to that list. Set 100 years in the future, the series follows Bella, a pilot from Earth (Emma McDonald) who begins looking into a murder in a utopian colony on the Moon. It's one part buddy cop drama (she teams up with a local detective played by Dominic Monaghan as she investigates), one part sci-fi mystery. Joe Manganiello and Kadeem Hardison co-star. -Allison Picurro [Trailer]

The Bridge

The Bridge

HBO Max

The Bridge

Season 2 now on HBO Max
This silly British reality competition with high stakes mixes elements of Survivor with The Mole (or Rat in the Kitchen for you young 'uns). The unusual premise sees a team of strangers tasked with building a bamboo bridge from a beach to an island to get 200,000 pounds. The Vietnam-set Season 2 adds a huge twist: There's a second team trying to do the same thing, but neither team is aware of the other. Adding to the intrigue, each team is infiltrated by a mole unwittingly sabotaging progress. It's ridiculous, but if the twists can keep coming and the moles can successfully frustrate everyone, it could be entertaining. -Tim Surette [Trailer]
