Next Week in TV 7/3: Enjoy Fireworks, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and The Boys Finales Drop, Too!

By Scott C. & DRWHO42 

The 4th of July holiday is upon us here in the United States, so it is time to get ready to view those fireworks and be prepared for a couple of finales dropping soon. 

On Monday, July 4th, one could watch the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern on NBC. Disney Plus also has a new nature documentary series called America the Beautiful, which sees Micheal B. Jordan as the narrator. It is all about seeing the natural beauty within the United States. Expect it to drop on Disney Plus sometime near midnight Eastern. 

AMC+ will have a 2 episode premiere of the sci-fi series Moonhaven on Thursday, July 7th. It is about “A skeptic in Paradise, Earth pilot Bella Sway is sucked into a conspiracy to gain control of Moonhaven, a utopian colony on the Moon 100 years in the future. She must team up with a local detective to stop forces that want to destroy Earth’s last hope before they are destroyed themselves.”

Also, airing on July 7th is the season 1 finale of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. However, a 10-episode 2nd season is coming soon, and fans got some good news that production has finished. Yet no date has been announced for the 2nd season premiere, so stay tuned for updates from the blog.   

On Friday, July 8th, The Boys‘ 3rd season wraps up. This 8-episode season has been quite good, so we are bummed to see it end so fast. Luckily, Karl Urban said very recently in an interview to Collider that the 4th season will begin filming soon, like August 22nd of 2022.

In some news, actor Taron Egerton has stated that he has met with Marvel Studios about a potential future role in the MCU (no new details shared yet), and The Time Traveler’s Wife HBO series got canceled after 1 season. Then we have Newstar acquiring 75% of The CW for $0 (although they take on a huge portion of the network’s current debt), and the sequel to Godzilla vs. Kong will release on March 15th, 2024. Lastly, Dune 2 is releasing on November 17th, 2023.  

That is it for this week, but do not forget to look at the listing below, to see what else is airing soon. Of course, let us know what you will be watching when visiting the FoCC forum. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Have a great 4th of July, everyone! Hopefully, we do not get attacked by aliens from outer space on this day. *Wink*
