The Boys: Season 4 (June 13)

The last season of Prime Video’s brutal superhero series ended on a sour note, with the good guys hooked to a experimental superpower drug and our bad guy, the stellar Antony Starr’s Homelander, buddying up with a presidential candidate. Luckily, everybody’s trading heaps of hugs in the new season’s trailer, with Hughie (Jack Quaid) starting to realise that “violence isn’t brave.” Can we please get a heap of head explosions and imaginative superhero slayings, anyways?

I Am: Céline Dion (June 25)

Even while enduring a devastating medical diagnosis, the French-Canadian songbird’s heart will go on—and superfans (read: everyone on the planet) can get a peek into the chanteuse’s life through this intimate documentary portrait. There’s plenty of quirk to mark Dion from the other pop girlies, from a bizarre childhood that fed into an eyebrow-raising, lifelong love affair with her manager, to her bonkers sense of humour. I also highly, highly recommend the nutty unofficial biopic Aline, the Voice of Love, which will have you racing to this more strait-laced film afterwards to find out how much of that shit actually happened.

My Lady Jane: Season 1 (June 27)

What if the tragic Lady Jane Grey escaped the executioner’s axe, and got to enjoy a life of flirtation and freedom? This British series reimagines an alternate, not-so-stuffy royal history, with just a touch of modern ‘what-could’ve-been’ wish fulfilment. Jim Broadbent, Dominic Cooper, and Rob Brydon bring some aristocratic weight to the production whilst Emily Bader will play the doomed ‘Nine Days Queen’, head thankfully intact for this interpretation.
