There’s a lot of good crime tv happening right now. In the interest of helping you sort out viewing schedules, we bring you a monthly guide to what’s coming next.
We Hunt Together
Showtime – Premieres July 3rd (season 2)
The British detective series returns, after a bit of a hiatus, for its second season to air in the States. Serial killers, emotional traps, sexual attraction – all still at the center of the series, which has a bit of style and wit to it, setting it apart from the usual fare with an interesting perspective and a charismatic detective pairing.
Apple TV – Premieres July 8th
One of the year’s most anticipated crime shows, this one comes to us from none other than Dennis Lehane. It’s based on a memoir from James Keene, who was serving a ten year sentence at a minimum security prison when, in the hopes of getting his time reduced, he agreed to be moved into a maximum security outfit, bunking with a believed serial killer in the hopes of getting a confession from him. The cast is pretty impressive, featuring Taron Egerton, Paul Walter Hauser, Sepideh Moafi, Greg Kinnear and Ray Liotta. Plenty of pedigree and excitement for this one.
Better Call Saul
AMC – Premieres July 11th (season 6, part 2)
You already know what you need to about Better Call Saul. This is just a reminder that part two of the final season begins airing on AMC this month.
Peacock – Premieres July 28th
There’s not too much out on The Resort just yet, but what there is sounds pretty enticing. It comes from Sam Esmail and company and stars William Jackson Harper, Cristin Milioti, Nick Offerman, Skyler Gisondo; described as “a multi-generational, coming-of-age love story disguised as a fast-paced mystery about the disappointment of time.” It would seem to be set at a resort, also. I’m in.
Apple TV – Premieres July 30th
An amnesia psychological thriller! Honestly I don’t know what amount of money I would have to be paid to watch this series, but it’s not insignificant. That said, the cast seems quite solid – Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Marianne Jean-Baptiste, among others – and the San Francisco setting is always worth something extra.
City on a Hill
Showtime – Premieres July 31st (season 3)
This series, which regularly seems to be engaging in a competition to see how many times it can remind you “hey, this is Boston,” is back for another season. Which is set in Boston. Boston, Massachusetts. The city on a hill, sort of.
