Summer is upon us, and the change of season brings new shows for audiences to watch. With many streaming services to choose from, each with their own collections of shows, it can be difficult to choose the best ones. Here are some of the TV shows releasing to stream this summer:
The Marvel Cinematic Universe’s newest addition to its ever-growing collection of shows and movies is “Loki,” releasing Wednesdays from June 9 to July 14 on streaming service Disney+. Focusing on the titular Loki, the antagonist-turned-anti-hero introduced in previous Marvel movies, the show follows his adventures as he works with the mysterious and powerful Time Variance Authority to defeat a familiar enemy.
Also on Disney+ is an adaptation of the children’s adventure book series “The Mysterious Benedict Society”; it releases June 25 and will premiere an episode weekly until Aug 6. When a villainous genius wants to take over the world, four gifted orphans, aided by an equally eccentric sponsor, must band together to stop him, with the orphans discovering some secrets of their own along the way.
Former President and First Lady, Barack and Michelle Obama, along with writer and producer Kenya Barris, worked together to create “We the People,” an educational animated series premiering on Netflix July 4. The show, which sets out to teach American Civics to children, uses music in order to convey their message in a unique and fun way.
Nearly a decade after the hit drama show “Gossip Girl” ended, a sequel, also called “Gossip Girl,” will debut on HBO Max July 8. Kristen Bell reprises her role as the narrator/Gossip Girl, this time narrating the lives of a new generation of private school girls living in a more modern Manhattan.
“Nine Perfect Strangers,” based on the book of the same name, is a miniseries releasing on Hulu Aug 18. When nine strangers go on a secluded retreat that promises to heal and change them for the better, they find themselves in over their heads as they realize all is not what it seems.
