Warrior Nun (July 2)

Where to watch: Netflix

If you’ve been after something to fill the Buffy-shaped hole in your heart, Warrior Nun might just do the trick. At the start of the show, protagonist Ava, an orphan, is dead. But she doesn’t stay that way, as an ancient order brings her back to life, imbuing her with superpowers and a mission to fight demons. It’s not exactly what Ava planned for her life (or death).

The Baby-Sitter’s Club (July 3)

Where to watch: Netflix

Another reboot from Netflix, this time of the iconic book series that was also adapted into a TV show and a movie in the ‘90s. The new Baby-Sitter’s Club retains the same characters and storylines fans of the original know and love, while bringing a 2020 spin with a more diverse cast and some updated plot points. It’s sure to delight nostalgic ‘90s kids and new fans alike.

Little Voice (July 10)

Where to watch: Apple TV+

Described as a “love letter to the diverse musicality of New York”, Little Voice is a musical romantic drama produced by J. J. Abrams.

It features new original songs from Sara Bareilles, who is also an executive producer.

P-Valley (July 12)

Where to watch: Stan

P-Valley is based on the play Pussy Valley by Katori Hall, who is series’ showrunner and executive producer. Set in the American Deep South, P-Valley centres around a strip club and an ensemble cast of characters connected to it. One of the most exciting aspects of the show is its all-woman director line-up, with the premiere episode directed by award-winning music video director Karena Evans.

Cursed (July 17)

Where to watch: Netflix

Based on an illustrated novel by Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler, Cursed is a re-imagining of the Arthurian legend focusing on Nimue, the Lady of the Lake. It stars Australia’s own Katherine Langford as Nimue and Devon Terrell as Arthur, with Gustaf Skarsgard as Merlin and Daniel Sharman as a character called the Weeping Monk.

Zomboat! (July 24)

Where to watch: Stan

This sitcom first aired in Britain in 2019 and is now premiering in Australia on Stan. In the vein of Shaun of the Dead, it’s a zombie comedy set in Birmingham, following a ragtag group of z-poc survivors fleeing for their lives on a very, very slow canal boat. As you do.

Muppets Now (July 31)

Where to watch: Disney+

They’re ba-ack! Muppets Now is a six episode “unscripted” series following Scooter and the other Muppets as they prepare to launch their first streaming show. It all sounds very meta and very Muppet-y, which is just what we need in 2020.
