Your weekly guide to all of the new and returning shows from US | UK | Australia

Hello friend,

It’s a big week for TV if only because one of the year’s most anticipated shows, HBO’s Lovecraft Country, launched. It’s good.

I suspect more people will watch new Netflix drama Biohackers. The German drama has a cast of fun and attractive young German’s getting involved in a sci-fi mystery.

RE: new animated show Hoops. Why does every new animated adult comedy show now just look like Family Guy?

returning: 

Lucifer (s5), The Circus (s5-B), Punk’d (2020) (s2), AP Bio (s2)
