Thanksgiving week has a few yummy treats, and one of those delicious offerings is the Disney+ series premiere of Hawkeye.
Set after Avengers: Endgame, the new series is about Clint Barton, or rather, Hawkeye (played by Jeremy Renner); and Kate Bishop (played by Hailee Steinfeld) teaming up to face future troubles. Overall, Barton’s time as Ronin is coming back to haunt him.
Hawkeye premieres on Wednesday morning, November 24th, on Disney+ with the first two episodes debuting first. The series overall will consist of six episodes, and is part of Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Meanwhile, Netflix’s Masters of the Universe: Revelation animated series is back with part 2. The second season gets going on Netflix on Tuesday morning, November 23rd.
Then we have Amazon’s Hanna series ending this Wednesday morning (November 24th) while Peacock’s Saved by the Bell returns for a second season on Wednesday.
Of course, on Thanksgiving Day, you have the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from New York City, airing on NBC and CBS at 9 a.m. ET. Also, fans of The Mandalorian series will see a giant Funko Pop! Grogu ballon, which will be debuting at the parade.
In TV news, fans of Batwoman got their first look at the show’s Poison Ivy, filming of part three has begun for Netflix’s Lupin, and the final season of Netflix’s Manifest series has started filming. Then we have the news of HBO Max being the place to watch the Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts special (on January 1st, 2022). It will have the big three: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint.

Directed by three-time Oscar®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “They Shall Not Grow Old”), “The Beatles: Get Back” takes audiences back in time to the band’s January 1969 recording sessions, which became a pivotal moment in music history. The docuseries showcases The Beatles’ creative process as they attempt to write 14 new songs in preparation for their first live concert in over two years. Faced with a nearly impossible deadline, the strong bonds of friendship shared by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr are put to the test. The docuseries is compiled from nearly 60 hours of unseen footage shot over 21 days, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg in 1969, and from more than 150 hours of unheard audio, most of which has been locked in a vault for over half a century. Jackson is the only person in 50 years to have been given access to this Beatles treasure trove, all of which has now been brilliantly restored. Click Here for More Information.
