And Just Like That
22 June, HBO Max
When the HBO spin-off reboot of Sex and the City premiered in December 2021, opinions were divided from the get go. However, by the time the 10 episodes came to a close and viewers got used to a Big-less Carrie and a Samantha-less New York City, we were all begrudgingly praying for a second season. Now, the teaser trailer is getting us *extremely* excited for Carrie’s exit-out-of-grief sex, a so-called ‘MILF list’, and the sweet return of Miranda’s red tresses.
Run Rabbit Run

Black Mirror: Season 6
It could very well be argued that we, as a society, have descended to such a point that shows like Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror feel a little too close to the bone, but nevertheless, a sixth season is on the way a long four years since Bandersnatch first aired. Cast includes Salma Hayek, Aaron Paul, Rory Culkin, Zazie Beetz, Annie Murphy, Josh Hartnett, Michael Cera, Paapa Essiedu, Rob Delaney, and many more. Who’s ready to feel existential and anxious for an hour an episode?
