New movies coming to Apple TV Plus
Killers of the Flower Moon
This big-name film will be in theaters this October and streaming on Apple TV Plus sometime thereafter. The Martin Scorsese-directed Killers of the Flower Moon premiered at the Cannes Film Festival recently and earned a seven-minute standing ovation.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, and Lily Gladstone, the epic turn-of-the-century Western crime saga illuminates a true-life story. When oil is discovered under Native American Osage land, the Osage Nation becomes rich overnight. This attracts dishonest white men who manipulate and eventually murder to get their hands on the money. Killers of the Flower Moon follows the FBI investigation and an improbable love story. Killers of the Flower Moon is a shoo-in for another Apple TV Plus Oscar nomination.
Stephen Curry: Underrated
Underrated, undersized, small-town Division 1 college player Stephen Curry rises to the highest heights of basketball. Follow Curry’s coming-of-age story and his journey to becoming one of the top players in the NBA in this documentary. Real Madrid: Until The End was a great example of how to do a sporting documentary, let’s hope Underrated is too.
Star-studded big-budget spy drama Argylle follows a globe-trotting super-spy across the US, London, and exotic locations around the world. The cast includes Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, John Cena, Dua Lipa, Ariana DeBose, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Apple is likely betting on the epic historical film, Napoleon, to garner some more Oscar awards. Joaquin Phoenix stars in this up close and personal glimpse into the life of Napoleon. The film captures his brilliant military mind, relentless ambition, and ruthless rise to emperor through the lens of his volatile and addictive relationship with the love of his life, Josephine. At the time of writing, no release date has been announced though it will show in theaters this fall.

New TV shows coming to Apple TV Plus
Lessons in Chemistry
Lessons in Chemistry, based on the massively popular book by Bonnie Garmus, is coming to Apple TV Plus this fall. I’ll be honest, I read the book, which had been recommended to me by several people, and it made me pretty angry for reasons I can’t share without spoilers. Still, I’m looking forward to watching the series, which stars Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larson.
It takes place in the 1960s and follows the life and career of brilliant chemist Elizabeth Zott, who is relegated to a more “female-appropriate” position as the star of a cooking show. Of course, she isn’t content to share just recipes; she has a lot more to teach the women (and men) who watch the show.
The Crowded Room
Psychological thriller The Crowded Room is a ten-episode limited series. Tom Holland stars as a man arrested for his involvement in a shooting in 1979 New York City. The story unfolds through a series of interviews between him and an interrogator played by Amanda Seyfried. The interviews reveal the man’s mysterious past and the twists and turns that lead to a life-altering revelation. The series begins streaming on Apple TV Plus on June 9, 2023.
Idris Elba heads up Hijack, a high-octane thriller of a tv show premiering June 28. The seven-part series is told in real time over the course of a seven-hour London-bound flight that gets hijacked. Elba’s character, Sam Nelson, is an accomplished business negotiator that uses his skills to try and thwart the hijackers. But will his high-risk strategy be his undoing?
The Beanie Bubble
Whether or not you’re old enough to remember the Beanie Baby craze or appreciate 90s nostalgia, you’ll probably want to check out this colorful comedy with the big-name cast. The new series premieres on July 28, starring Zach Galifianakis as toymaker Ty Warner. Elizabeth Banks, Sarah Snook, and Geraldine Viswanathan star as the three women that help turn his failing business around by igniting a massive trend.
New seasons of existing Apple TV Plus shows
Foundation – Season 2
Sci-fi favorite Foundation returns on July 14. The story picks up a century after the season one finale. The classic story of Foundation is about four crucial individuals who transcend time and space to face multiple challenges and decide the fate of humanity. Laura Birn, Cassian Bilton, and Terrence Mann will return in the second season. New cast members include Isabella Laughland, Kulvinder Ghir, Ella-Rae Smith, Holt McCallany, Rachel House, Nimrat Kaur, Ben Daniels, and Dimitri Leonidas.
Swagger – Season 2
Sports drama Swagger’s second season premieres June 23. Loosely based on the life of NBA star Kevin Durant, the show follows a young basketball prodigy as he learns to navigate all kinds of pressures on and off the court to attain a big-time career in American sports. The first season was praised for making a sporting drama filled with heart thanks to a fantastic performance from Isaiah Hill as Jace.
Durant is an executive producer, so if you’re a big of KD then Swagger is definitely worth a watch.
The Afterparty – Season 2
The second season of The Afterparty premieres July 12. The comedy murder mystery series takes unexpected twists and turns, as each suspect’s story is told through a different film genre. Tiffany Haddish returns as Detective Danner trying to solve a new murder. Other stars in the show’s second season include Sam Richardson, Zoë Chao, Elizabeth Perkins, Zach Woods, Paul Walter Hauser, Poppy Liu, and more.
Physical – Season 3
Physical returns on August 2 for its third season. Rose Byrne stars in this dark comedy set in sunny 1980s San Diego. Byrne’s Sheila Rubin is a dutiful housewife who supports her lackluster husband’s career ambitions while battling her own demons. She finds a passion in aerobics and discovers a way to combine this with the new technology of videotape to become a female lifestyle guru—something commonplace nowadays but nearly unheard of at the time.
Carpool Karaoke: The Series – Season 6
Can’t get enough Carpool Karaoke? Well, you’re in luck, because Carpool Karaoke: The Series returns for a sixth season on June 23. You’ll see the Arquette siblings, Cedric the Entertainer, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Brian Cox, Alan Cumming, Alanis Morissette, Cara Delevingne, plus the current and former casts of shows such as Glee, Community, girl group mockumentary Girls5eva, Ghosts, The Afterparty, and more.
