While television capped off highly-anticipated titles like ‘The Idol’ and ‘Black Mirror’ season six just last month, July isn’t slowing down on the entertainment front either—with long-awaited returning seasons and music documentaries entering the lineup onscreen.
First on our list is Tomorrow X Together: Our Lost Summer. Premiering on Disney+, the documentary is the first of its kind for the South Korean boyband Tomorrow X Together (generally known as TXT). The group—formed by Big Hit Entertainment, home of BTS—consists of Yeonjun, Soobin, Beomgyu, Taehyun, and HueningKai. Honing a sound characterised as a blend of pop, hip-hop, rock, and EDM, the quintet has amassed a tremendous following since their debut four years ago. From stage to stage, the documentary promises MOAs (their fandom name) an intimate glimpse into their lives and what goes behind their performance stages.
As for comedies, Good Omens is a must-watch. Based on the original 1990 novel by critically acclaimed authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, Good Omens is a comedy about the birth of Satan’s offspring—an 11-year-old boy—who is destined to bring about the End Times. To stop this, angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and demon Crowley (David Tennant) band together in an unlikely friendship to safeguard the lives they have come to enjoy living on Earth. The first season wrapped up with a pretty happy ending—for now. The plot of the second season has yet to be unveiled, as the elusive showrunner Gaiman has answered many of fans’ queries with nothing more than a cheeky “wait and see”.
Following its massive success last year and based off a series of coming-of-age novels ‘The Summer I Turned Pretty’ by Jenny Han, the TV adaption returns for a second season on Amazon Prime Video. Breakout stars Lola Tung, Christopher Briney and Gavin Casalegno reprise their roles as Belly, Conrad and Jeremiah as they navigate the highs and lows in a heart-wrenching love triangle.
On the fantasy front, The Witcher is returning this month for its third season. Led by Henry Cavill who reprises his role of the reclusive monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, the epic fantasy drama also features Anya Chalotra as sorceress Yennefer of Vengerberg and Freya Allan as the Crown Princess Ciri of Cintra who finds her fate intertwined with Geralt’s.
Below, see the full lineup of shows to add to your July watchlist—all available on major streaming services including Netflix, Disney+, Apple TV+, and HBO Go.
