A new month means that there are new shows to try out. So, if you’ve caught up on everything that came out in June, check out this list and see if anything premiering this month might end up becoming your new favorite show.

My Adventures with Superman – Adult Swim (July 7th)

This new animated Superman series is going back to the early days of the character; when Clark Kent is still figuring out how to create a successful secret identity and Lois Lane is still working her way to star reporter status. The series looks to have a brighter, throwback take on the character, in contrast to the more brooding Superman that we’ve seen in recent DCEU movies.

While the series is slated to air on Adult Swim, it was originally planned to air on Cartoon Network. It looks like the change hasn’t really done anything to alter the content of what the show is.

The series plans to draw direct inspiration from the 1978 version of Superman but based on some of the characters scheduled to appear, it looks like it will be delving deep into Superman comic book lore as well.

Cat Grant, Steve Lombard, Amanda Waller and Mr. Mxyzptlk, are all characters that have been cast for the series, among plenty of others.

Quarterback – Netflix (July 12th)

Netflix has produced some pretty successful sports documentaries in the past but this one might be their biggest yet. The streaming platform is partnering with the NFL directly to create a documentary focusing on three different quarterbacks throughout the 2022 season, one of whom would go on to win the Super Bowl that season.

For the series, each of the quarterbacks wore a microphone for every single game that season, and we’ll get an inside look at what life is like for the most scrutinized member of each team in one of the most popular sports in the nation.

Full Circle – Max (July 13th)

From director Steven Soderbergh, the plot of this miniseries has been shrouded in mystery, and even the recent trailer release doesn’t give that much away. It appears that the story centers around a kidnapping that slowly spirals out of control across the series, revealing secrets surrounding each character.

The series is 6 episodes long, with each episode written by Ed Solomon and directed by Steven Soderbergh. The show also boasts a pretty impressive cast list including Zazie Beetz, Claire Danes, Timothy Olyphant and Dennis Quaid among others.

Futurama – Hulu (July 24th)

Is it a reboot? Is it just the latest season of the same show?

Who can say at this point? Futurama has been canceled and brought back more than just about any other show in history, and yet it seems pretty clear that the fans are still eager for more and the creators are still happy to keep making more.

The last time the show was canceled was after running for two seasons on Comedy Central from 2010 to 2013. The last episode had a pretty touching ending that served as a very nice series finale.

But that’s happened before as well, with Futurama having delivered a final episode to close out the series on a perfect note four different times now, only to have the show figure out a way to bring everyone back and keep the story going. Everyone’s returned to the show, even John Dimaggio, the voice of Bender, who had a very brief public issue with the payment for voice actors.

The trailer shows plenty of characters that longtime fans will be familiar with. So, whether you consider this to be the first season of a new reboot, the 8th season of the show’s production, or the 11th season of the show being broadcast (all could be considered correct), it’s just exciting to have Futurama back.

Twisted Metal – Peacock (July 27th)

2023 kicked off the year with one of the most well reviewed video game series of all time making a big splash, causing plenty of think pieces to be written about how we may be heading for a renaissance of shows based off of video games. Well, that means that Twisted Metal is the next show in line to test that hypothesis.

Based on a demolitions derby style video game, where every player got to pick a car and destroy all the other cars, Twisted Metal takes place in a Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic future. Anthony Mackie plays John Doe, a delivery man tasked with delivering a mysterious package while surviving all of the other drivers trying to kill him along the way.

For those fans who are worried that their favorite game Twisted Metal won’t be properly translated to television, it’s been confirmed that Sweet Tooth is going to be a character in the show. For those who haven’t played the game, Sweet Tooth is the killer clown that drives the ice cream truck and is present on most of the covers of the games in the series.
