The Secrets of Hillsong (12th July) 

The scandal surrounding one of America’s most popular churches is uncovered in FX docu-series The Secrets of Hillsong. 

Based on the explosive reporting by Vanity Fair, the series features the first interviews with two former pastors, Carl and Laura Lentz, since their public ousting from the church, which for years counted musicians, actors, athletes and other celebrities among its flock.

New investigations featured will also dive into the cover-ups, misconduct and abuse at the heart of the church itself.

The Bear - Series 2 (19th July) 

Get ready for more chaotic kitchen drama in the second series of The Bear.

Season one of the acclaimed dark comedy-drama followed award-winning chef Carmen ‘Carmy’ Berzatto (Jeremy Allen White) who returned to run his family’s Italian beef sandwich shop following his brother’s suicide. 

Season two will focus on Carmy’s decision to close the shop and, along with Sydney (Ayo Edebiri) and Richie (Ebon Mass-Bachrach), open up a next-level restaurant in its place.

Drag Me To Dinner (26th July)

Turning dinner parties completely on their head, Drag Me to Dinner is the outrageous new reality competition, which pits Drag Queens against each other to throw the best soiree ever. 

In each hour-long episode, two new pairs of Queens go wig-to-wig in themed culinary and design challenges, in an attempt to throw the most fabulous dinner party yet. 


WHAM! (5th July)

The unbelievable story behind WHAM! will be explored through Netflix’s upcoming documentary. 

The movie will focus on the four-year journey that George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley took from being school friends to international superstars, and will feature footage from the duo’s personal archives, including some never-before-seen stuff and previously unheard interviews with Ridgeley and Michael.

The documentary - directed by Fyre’s Chris Smith - will also touch on the latter’s solo career and his emergence as a gay icon, after he came out in 1998.

The Lincoln Lawyer - Series 2 Part 1 (6th July) 

After a huge demand from fans, The Lincoln Lawyer is finally back for another series. 

The Lincoln Lawyer, based on the Michael Connelly book series of the same name, launched in May 2022, and landed straight in the Netflix Top 10 TV shows in the UK.

The series focuses on ‘LA’s finest lawyer’ and recovering addict Mickey Haller, played by Manuel Garcia-Ruflo, who helps his clients from the back of Lincoln Continental instead of a standard office.

The Out-laws (7th July)

Pierce Brosnan is swapping shaken martinis for hilarious high jinks in new comedy film, The Out-Laws. 

Adam Devine plays straitlaced banker Owen, who is close to marrying the love of his life Parker, played by Nina Dobrev. 

When Owen’s bank is held up at gunpoint by The Ghost Bandits, he believes his future-in-laws, played by Brosnan and Ellen Barkin, are the main culprits. 

The Witcher - Series 3 Volume 2 (27th July) 

It’s almost time to say goodbye to Henry Cavill as the beloved Geralt of Rivia as Netflix is set to release the final half of The Witcher series three. 

Volume one has already dropped on the streaming service, and fans can expect to see more of Anya Chalotra (Yennefer of Vengerberg), Freya Allan (Princess Cirilla of Cintra) and Joey Batey as the bard Jaskier.

This run of episodes of the historical fantasy series, based on the books of the same name, will feature many themes running through the fifth novel, according to exec producer Tomek Baginski - but either way, fans will have to bid farewell to Cavill’s Geralt before Liam Hemsworth takes over for series four. 

Apple TV+ 

Foundation - Series 2 (14th July)

Based on sci-fi novels by Isaac Asimov, Foundation is back for another round with the likes of Lee Pace, Jared Harris and Leah Harvey. 

Foundation follows a band of exiles on their journey to save humanity and rebuild civilization following the fall of the Galactic Empire.

The Afterparty - Series 2 

Murder-mystery anthology series The Afterparty continues on Apple TV+

While the first series took place at a high school reunion shindig from each character’s perspective, this new series will take place a day after a wedding. 

This time around, investigators arrive to find the groom has been murdered, and everyone at the venue is a suspect. Ken Jeong, Jack Whitehall and Tiffany Haddish star in this hilarious crime comedy.
