Hello again, TV fans!
The blog certainly hopes that everyone is having a good summer so far. As for the week ahead, here is a quick rundown on a few things airing on the small screen.
On Tuesday, July 13th, The CW’s The Flash will celebrate the series’ 150th episode at 8 p.m. ET. Fans should expect the return of old characters, the introduction of new ones, and more surprises along the way for the milestone event. As such, no Flash fan should miss this episode.
With glorious purpose, the Loki season one finale teleports in this Wednesday (July 14th) on Disney+ that will hopefully try to answer some fan questions in the ongoing TVA (Time Variance Authority) storyline.
Also on July 14th, but Netflix is Gunpowder Milkshake. The movie stars Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, and Carla Gugino, and it is about “When an assassin veers off-mission to rescue a child, she triggers a war with a powerful crime syndicate — and reunites a gun-wielding sisterhood.”
On Thursday, July 15, FX on HULU has American Horror Stories: Rubber Woman debuting only on the streaming service. In it, “A teenager and her Dads move into a forsaken home with a grim past. As the family makes renovations, darkness takes root within them.”
On Friday, July 16th, HBO Max’s Space Jam: A New Legacy premieres on the streaming service, as well as in theaters. In it, “A rogue artificial intelligence kidnaps the son of famed basketball player LeBron James, who then has to work with Bugs Bunny to win a basketball game.”
Then we have Shark Week beginning on July 11th at 8 p.m. ET on Discovery! There will be 32 shark-centric specials airing this time around that will certainly beat what past Shark Weeks have had before. Of course, the listing below will be your guide to enjoy the weeklong shark-fun. (Likewise, for everything else airing this week that is not all about sharks.)
In some television news, Netflix has canceled Cursed after one season. Meanwhile, the world found out that William Smith has sadly passed away at the age of 88. The Witcher‘s second season is premiering on December 17th of 2021 on Netflix, while Michelle Yeoh has been cast in The Whitcher: Blood Origin. Evil at Paramount+ has been recently renewed, which means a third season is coming. Lastly, the Disney+ animated series What If…? by Marvel Studios premieres on August 11th, and Netflix’s Transformers: War for Cybertron: Kingdom is July 29th.
