What’s streaming from July to December

Better Call Saul – season 6, part 2

Synopsis: Set four years before Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul season six part two shows the further evolution of Jimmy McGill into the titular character, criminal defence lawyer Saul Goodman, as he and his wife execute their plan to ruin the life of Howard Hamlin and force a resolution of the Sandpiper case.

Where to watch: Stan

Release date: 11 July, 2022

Why we’re excited: We’ve already seen the first half of this season, which left us on a cliff-hanger to end all cliff-hangers. No spoilers, but I can’t wait to see how they handle the fate of Kim Wexler, and whether bringing Walter and Jesse in at the last minute will be great TV or meaningless fan service.

What We Do In The Shadows – Season 4

Synopsis: The mockumentary-style show, which is based on Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi’s film of the same name, centres on the inhabitants of a house in Staten Island: married vampires Laszlo and Nadja, the looking-for-love Nandor, energy vampire Colin Robinson (who is experiencing a sort-of rebirth this season), and the human who puts up with it all, Guillermo de la Cruz.

Where to watch: Binge

Release date: 12 July, 2022

Why we’re excited: Four sexuality-bending vampires all living in a house together – what’s not to love? The dead but delicious gang returning to our screens is enough to get me through the rest of the year alone.

Where to watch: Netflix

Release date: 5 August, 2022

Why we’re excited: Gaiman’s novel of the same name was called ‘unadaptable’, and look at it now! It’s got a slick looking trailer that’s already given us goosebumps.

Paper Girls

Why we’re excited: It’s a feminist horror adapted from a graphic novel, which sounds like a winning formula. Plus the trailer is super spooky.

A League of Their Own

The show takes a deeper look at race and sexuality, following the journey of a whole new ensemble of characters as they carve their own paths towards the field, both in the League and outside of it.

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video

Release date: 12 August, 2022

Why we’re excited: Tatiana Maslany is back in what looks like a promising series, after wrapping up Orphan Black on a rather lacklustre note all those years ago.

Where to watch: Binge

Release date: 21 August, 2022

Why we’re excited: We finally have an excuse to wear all our GOT merch again – that is, if you haven’t burnt yours in anger yet. Dracarys!

Where to watch: Netflix

Release date: September, 2022 (predicted)

Why we’re excited: This is the final season of the hilarious and nostalgic Derry Girls, the series that brought us endlessly quotable lines like ‘I’m the wee lesbian!’ and ‘If anyone is feeling anxious or worried or even if you just want to chat, please, please, do not come crying to me.’

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

Synopsis: This epic drama is set thousands of years before the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, and will take viewers back to an era in which great powers were forged, kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin, unlikely heroes were tested, hope hung by the finest of threads, and the greatest villain that ever flowed from Tolkien’s pen threatened to cover all the world in darkness.

Where to watch: Amazon Prime Video

Release date: September 2, 2022

Why we’re excited: Who can forget the thrill of watching The Lord of the Rings for the first time? I’m really hoping this series captures that lightning in a bottle once again, unlikely as it may be.
