14 New Series to Get Excited About in June

From the third season of 'The Bear' to a 'Presumed Innocent' adaptation starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

We’ve made it to the middle of the year, and what better way to celebrate than with a new season of everyone’s favourite dysfunctional cooking show, The Bear.

If ten new episodes of the Emmy award winning drama isn’t enough, there’s plenty more on this month’s menu to feast your eyes on. From Land of Women starring Eva Longoria, to Part 2 of Bridgerton Season 3, and the highly anticipated legal thriller Presumed Innocent starring Jake Gyllenhaal, here are 14 new series to get excited about in June.

1. The Bear, Season 3

Where can I watch it? Disney+

Season 2 left us in quite a spin as Carmy & co worked around the clock to get their new and improved restaurant ready for opening night. And what an opening night it was. More like “No chef!” am I right? But with Carmy now out of the walk-in cooler, Season 3 looks set to delve into the repercussions of that night – including Carmy’s work relationship with Sydney vs his romantic one with Claire, the fate of Marcus’ mother, and whatever mess Cousin cooks up next.

2. Land of Women

Long crowned the diva of drama for her depiction of Gabrielle Solis in Desperate Housewives, Eva Longoria always shines on screen. In this series adaptation of Sandra Barneda's bestselling novel of the same name, Longoria stars as Gala, a woman forced to flee NYC with her mother and daughter in tow once her husband’s criminal activities are exposed. The three women attempt to start afresh in a charming Spanish wine town, only to discover that small-town gossip spreads quick.

3. Mayor of Kingstown, Season 3

Where can I watch it? Paramount+

Born from the same brain that gave us Yellowstone, crime drama Mayor of Kingston is another certified hit by creator Taylor Sheridan. Over two seasons, the McLusky family have maintained their reign over the Michigan prison town, playing mediator between local cops and criminals as well as outsiders. Season 3 sets the stage for an explosive town take over care of the Russian mob, as Mike (Jeremy Renner) faces a new foe amidst a raging drug war across the city.

4. Bridgerton, Season 3: Part 2

Where can I watch it? Netflix

After binging our way through Part 1’s first four episodes, Part 2 can’t come soon enough – especially after that carriage cliff hanger! Leaving us on read for a month was cruel, but the final four episodes of Bridgerton’s third season promise to deliver enough drama to excuse the wait. With the focus staying put on Penelope and Colin’s ever evolving relationship, expect the unexpected.

5. House of the Dragon, Season 2

Where can I watch it? NOW

Game of Thrones left big leather boots to fill, but its prequel has proven to possess some pretty big feet. Based on the George R.R. Martin books, House of the Dragon offers a deep dive into the history of the Targaryen family, who ruled many moons before Daenerys first saw the light of day. Over eight episodes, season 2 of this fantasy drama promises plenty of dragon vs dragon action alongside some of its biggest battles yet as it prepares us for the civil war to come.

6. Presumed Innocent

Presumed Innocent first began in 1987 as a best-selling novel by Scott Turow before becoming one of the highest-grossing films of 1990 starring Harrison Ford.

7. Becoming Karl Lagerfeld

Following in the footsteps of Christian Dior’s biopic series, The New Look, Disney+’s Becoming Karl Lagerfeld lifts the couture curtain on the iconic designer’s road to success, strutting its way through the fashionable streets of Paris, Monaco, and Rome in the 70s.

Best viewed with some bubbly in hand!

8. My Lady Jane

Where can I watch it? Prime

Dubbed a ‘romantasy’, My Lady Jane is revisionist history at its best. Rewriting the tragic tale of Lady Jane Grey “the way it should have happened”, series creator Gemma Burgess presents an epic story of true love where Lady Jane saves her own kingdom in lieu of her real-life beheading in 1553. Set in an alt-universe over eight action-packed episodes, this series gives the Nine Days’ Queen a chance to live the life she deserved instead of the cruel existence she endured.

From the Co-creator of Narcos comes this month’s best drug crime thriller, Hotel Cocaine. The eight-episode series tells the saga of Miami’s most infamous accommodations – The Mutiny Hotel – which harboured a lot more than just holiday makers in the 1970s.
