There's a lot of new and returning series worth taking note of. The big draw this week is the new Marvel series Loki on Disney+, but I wouldn't be entirely surprised if more people are excited about the return of Lupin on Netflix. That batch of episodes are the second half of the first season.
In the US, it's a big weekend for movies. In The Heights debuts on HBO Max, while the new Mark Wahlberg flick Infinite is a big drawcard for Paramount+. Here in Australia, home of the Always Be Watching head office, there are preview screenings for In The Heights across the country. The film is released properly on June 24. Meanwhile, Infinite doesn't see a cinema release until 9 September. I'm sure it'll do gangbuster business when all of that great word of mouth builds.
Intelligence (s02), DC Super Hero Girls (s02), Home Before Dark (s02), Flack (s02), Sistas (s03), Lupin (s02-Part B), Love Victor (s02), The Chase (s02)
