The best new shows to stream on Netflix, Hulu, Max (HBO), and more

The cast of Cobra Kai.
Netflix

After getting off to a slow start, July is kicking into a higher gear with the first part of the sixth and final season of Cobra Kai arriving on Netflix. That’s the kind of show that can make viewers for get about other options, but Peacock wouldn’t allow itself to be outdone. The Comcast-owned streamer has debuted every episode of its new gladiator-themed drama Those About To Die. And for superhero and comedy fans, Max has premiered Kite Man: Hell Yeah! — another fun and twisted look at the funnier side of Batman’s rogue’s gallery.

The Boys also had its fourth season finale this week, and House of the Dragon season 2 is winding down on Max. The good news is that there are more new series on the way this month. So keep checking back every week as we update our list of the best new shows to stream.

Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Max, Disney+, Paramount+, Peacock, and Apple TV+ all have one thing in common: They’re more expensive than they used to be! We can live with higher rates as long as new shows keep coming, but it’s always a good idea to consider signing up for the ad-supported tiers, which are worth it if you can sit through a few commercials. 

When you’re done here, check out the best new movies to stream this week, as well as the best shows on Netflix, best shows on Hulu, best shows on Amazon Prime Video, and best shows on Disney+.

The best Amazon Prime original series right now

Although it may have one of the highest subscriber counts of all streaming services, the best Amazon Prime Video original series often go under the radar compared to originals of other platforms. The recent success of Fallout has helped put Prime Video back in the conversation, however, just in time for two of its most popular shows to return for new seasons.

This month, superhero carnage fest The Boys returns for season 4 on June 13, while sci-fi drama Outer Range and Stephen Merchant crime comedy series The Outlaws both released new seasons in May. Read on for the best Amazon Prime Video original series available now.
We’ve also rounded up the best Netflix original series and the best Hulu original series if Prime Video doesn’t have the originals you’re looking for.

Best streaming deals: Sling TV, Hulu, Peacock, and more

Whether you're cutting the cord finally or looking for a new platform to watch some unique content, just know there are some excellent streaming deals out there for you. That's important since there are so many different streaming services to choose from nowadays. It doesn't make sense to subscribe to every single one, but instead to go with the services that offer the best deals, and the most content you like. Disney+, for example, may have more movies and shows you like to watch than Peacock, or maybe vice versa? Or, perhaps when you're ready to subscribe, the Disney bundle that includes Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+ together for one low price is more enticing than a single subscription. Whatever the case, if you're looking for some solid streaming deals, you've come to the right place.

Amazon Prime Video
Getting right into it, Amazon Prime Video, specifically, does not have a free trial.
