5 Shows to Watch this Summer!

Summer is fast approaching, and soon we’ll all be ready to kick back and relax with some good old telly! Here’s the lowdown on the hottest 5 shows to catch up on this Summer!

Moon Knight

Marvel is on top of the world right now, with Spider-Man: No Way Home released for digital streaming, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness coming out in May. Moon Knight is the latest in Marvel TV, and follows Stephen Grant, who’s troubled life is upturned when he discovers he has been granted the powers of an Ancient Egyptian moon god. Available on Disney+, a new episode is released each week. Oscar Isaac (Ex Machina), Ethan Hawke (The Purge) and May Calamawy (The Long Road Home) star in this action-packed, supernatural superhero show!

Russian Doll

Fans of the first season already know why this Netflix series is a must-see! Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black) stars as a cynical young woman living in New York, who’s life is interrupted by a fracture in space-time. The second season has just been released, and is a worthy successor to the first, with the aforementioned Lyonne as charismatic as ever in the lead role!

Killing Eve

The final season of this BBC hit series has just been released! Eve (Sandra Oh, Grey’s Anatomy) and Villanelle (Jodie Comer, Free Guy) enter into a cat-and-mouse battle of wits in a stylish, surprisingly witty British spy thriller. Fiona Shaw (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) is also a standout, playing Carolyn, the mysterious veteran spy. With 4 seasons to binge, all on BBC iPlayer, this slick show (from creator and star of Fleabag, Phoebe Waller-Bridge) is a must-see!

Derry Girls

Created by Lisa McGee, this Irish comedy is currently on its third season. Personally, I can sometimes tire of watching stressful, tense dramas and instead look for something lighter. Derry Girls is something to watch when you want to just relax and laugh.

The Boys

This surprising, subversive superhero show is back! The Boys follows Billy Butcher and his group of vigilantes as they hold corrupt superheroes to account, in a world that resembles a darkly realistic take on the ‘what if superheroes were real’ concept. Although I am a fan of all of these recommendations, The Boys is probably my favourite! The show contains strong language and violence, with some heavy themes also used. Season 3 is set to be released on the 3rd of June, this year (2022), on Amazon Prime.

So, those are my 5 recommendations for this Summer!
