Co-created by and starring Fred Armisen, Los Espookys is a Spanish-language comedy that follows a group of friends “who turn their love for horror into a peculiar business, providing horror to those who need it, in a dreamy Latin American country where the strange and eerie are just part of daily life.” Hollywood Reporter critic Daniel Fienberg said the show’s droll sense of humor is “likely to make it a cult favorite.”

Jett (June 14, Cinemax)

Carla Gugino plays a former thief “fresh out of prison” who is thrust back into her old line of work in this Cinemax show. It also stars Giancarlo Esposito of Breaking Bad fame. Alan Sepinwall of Rolling Stone gave the series a positive review, praising Gugino’s charismatic lead performance as the titular master thief.

Euphoria (June 16, HBO)

Already internet famous for an episode that includes “close to 30 penises,” Euphoria is a teen drama about a group of American high schoolers navigating drugs, sex, and identity. I’ve seen the first four episodes and liked them. While it’s certainly very explicit, the hysteria surrounding said few-dozen penises is overblown. Teens are likely to love this show, while many adults will appreciate its creative visuals and star Zendaya’s outstanding lead performance. And, clearly, it’s already getting people talking.

The Rook (June 30, Starz)

Based on the book of the same name by Daniel O’Malley, The Rook is a miniseries about a woman who wakes up in London with no memory of how she got there, soon discovering she’s part of a secret British agency for people with supernatural abilities. Twilight author Stephenie Meyer was originally hired as showrunner, but left the series after creative differences with the other producers.

The Loudest Voice (June 30, Showtime)

Russell Crowe is transformed into the ghoulish Fox News CEO Roger Ailes in this miniseries based on the book The Loudest Voice in the Room by Gabriel Sherman. The series will focus on the last decade, when Ailes solidified his cable “news” channel as a wing of the US Republican party before several allegations of sexual harassment resulted in his ouster from the company. Naomi Watts plays Gretchen Carlson, one of the Fox employees who accused Ailes of misconduct. Ailes died in 2017 not long after he left the network.

The Boys (July 26, Amazon)

What if superheroes, but bad? That’s the question asked by The Boys, based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. When some of the world’s superheroes abuse their powers, a group of vigilantes (our titular “boys”) take it upon themselves to take them down and expose the conglomerate covering it all up.

BH90210 (Aug. 7, Fox)

Former cast members of the 1990s series Beverly Hills, 90210 reunite to play themselves in this meta mockumentary. The teaser (above) is deeply weird. After Toy Story, Men in Black, and Nickelodeon’s All That, BH90210 continues the summer of 1990s reboots. The show will include a tribute to iconic cast member Luke Perry, who died in March.

The Terror: Infamy (Aug. 12, AMC)

Technically this the second season of the AMC anthology horror series, but we’ll include it on this list because it’s a completely different story from the show’s first season, which was a fictionalized account of John Franklin’s lost Arctic expedition in 1845. This season is set in a Japanese internment camp during World War II, and stars George Takei—who himself was relocated to internment camps with his family as a child in the 1940s.
