Percy Jackson and The Olympians | Teaser | Disney+

Mariah Carey has woken up from her slumber, which means the holiday season is in full swing.

Disney+ will do its best to celebrate the season with its lineup  of new and returning Disney+ shows, original movies, and season finales that are set to stream in December 2023.

Some of November’s highlights include the season 2 finale of The Santa Clauses, the season 2 debut of Marvel’s What If…?, the streaming debut of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, more Doctor Who specials with David Tennant, and the premiere of the new Percy Jackson series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

The 10 most popular shows on Max right now
Deborah and Ava in Hacks standing on a balcony talking in a scene from season 3 of Hacks.

It may be the beginning of June, but we can tell you what the most popular show on HBO and Max will be a month from now. House of the Dragon won't premiere its second season until June 16, and it's almost certain to be No. 1 as long as it has new episodes to play. In the meantime, Hacks is the new No. 1 on our list of the most popular shows on Max right now. The third season of the show just ended, so it may not be in the top 10 at this time next month.

Perennial HBO favorites Real Time with Bill Maher and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver both remain on the list this month, as does The Jinx Part II. The new additions include Fallen Idols, Pretty Little Liars, Smiling Friends, and more.

Everything coming to PBS in June 2024
Two vicars and a man stand in Grantchester.

When it comes to new programming on PBS, June is going to get off to a slow start. But by the middle of the month, three British dramas -- D.I. Ray, Grantchester, and Professor T -- will all be back with new seasons. And if you're looking for some light-hearted competition to watch, the third season of The Great American Recipe is also arriving just in time for summer.

PBS' mandate is programming that serves the public interest. This month, PBS is doing that with a Frontline investigation into the ongoing campus protests about the war in Gaza, as well nature specials, documentaries, and a Great Performances' presentation of Carmen. And it's all free to watch, thanks to viewers like you.
