Summer is officially in full swing, and you know what that means, right? Yes, more new content to stream. With the number of streaming services growing seemingly every day, it can be difficult to keep track of what is being released, where, and when. Fortunately, the major broadcasters release a detailed list of their new content at the end of each month.
Paramount + Gearing up for July with many new series and expected returns. These titles include animation for the whole family, a tribute to a bygone era of music, and a new action series from the mind of Taylor Sheridan. June saw several successful releases for the streaming device, including new seasons of iCarly, Queens of the Universe, Joe Pickett, And Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
Of course, these new releases come at a time of syndicated content removal, as Paramount+ and other broadcasters seem to be following Oole’ WBD’s good example of purging low-rated original programming. Queens of the Universe, Star Trek: Miracle, Inside Amy Schumer, And Grease: The Rise of the Pink Ladies are just some of the titles that vanished into the ether, and may never be seen again. While it pisses fans off, it’s a good counterpoint for those who think physical media is dying.
With that feeling out of the way, let’s take a look at the best new and returning series coming to Paramount+ this July. At least before they are removed.
Big Nate – Season 2 (July 7)
This animated show is based on the comic book series of the same name by Lincoln Pierce. Originally intended for a linear launch on Nickelodeon, the show premiered on Paramount+ in February 2022.
Ben Jero stars as Nate Wright, a rebellious sixth grader who pranks and makes enemies with the teachers and principal at his school. Other cast members include Dove Cameron as Nate’s sister Ellen, Rob Delaney as their father Martin, and Kevin Michael Richardson as Principal Nichols.
Season 1 episodes premiered on Nickelodeon roughly a few months after their streaming release, and Season 2 will likely follow the same format.
but, Star Trek: Miracle It was in the same boat as the original animated film preparing to release its second season. Who says Big Nate Will you not suffer the same fate? Unintentional rhyme. Fans should enjoy new episodes as soon as they are released if new content is removed.
Goliath (July 14)
NBA fans will want to keep this on their radar. Goliath is a three-part documentary series that explores the life of NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain. The official description reads: “Brass and confident, Chamberlain changed the way the game was played, breaking records and racial barriers and challenging the unwritten rules of all athletes, especially black basketball players, to his own standards on or off the court.”
Set in 2023, artificial intelligence will be used to recreate Chamberlain’s voice as the Doctor explores his high school career up to his death in 1999. Fellow NBA player Kevin Garnett will produce the Content Cartel alongside Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions.
Viewers should note that this series is only available to stream for Paramount+ with Showtime subscribers, though it will debut on Showtime on July 16th.
Parents everywhere, rejoice! Finally, your time has come. The ’80s metal scene – in all its spandex-clad glory – will be retold in this new three-part documentary series. Fans of Glam Skid Row, Vixen, The Scream, Winger, and Twisted Sister will see them struggle for success against some of the more established acts on the scene, like Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and Guns N’ Roses.
Each of the three episodes depicts a different aspect of the process, beginning with these bands’ origins, rise to stardom, and fading from popularity in the face of grunge in the 1990s. But has the fun of the great ’80s really gone? All episodes drop July 18 in the US, with a UK and Australian release the following day.
Special Ops: The Lioness (July 23)
Now we come to the fair with the most promotions. Special Ops: Lioness descended from Yellowstone Mastermind Taylor Sheridan, who is arguably now the second most famous “Taylor S.”
The show follows Joe, a Marine recruited by the CIA to befriend the daughter of a terrorist the agency is watching for. Zoe Saldana appears as main character Joe along with a star-studded cast. Lesla de Oliveira, Dave Annable, Jill Wagner, Lamonica Jarrett, James Jordan, Michael Kelly, Sam Asghari, Nicole Kidman, and Morgan Freeman are some of the names we can expect to see.
It was originally known simply as lioness The address has been changed to Special Ops: Lioness in May 2023. Filming for the show began on the Spanish island of Majorca in January 2023.
