The best new TV to stream this week – from Home to Jennifer Lopez: Halftime | The Sun

STREAMED all there is to stream on Netflix and beyond? Well, fear not. The Sun has got you covered with all the best new TV shows coming to your screens.

From the eagerly anticipated Becoming Elizabeth, to the third and last series of Disney's Love, Victor, there’s no shortage of shows to binge-watch until your heart’s content. 

Becoming Elizabeth (Starzplay)

As much as we love The Crown, the closer that series creeps towards the modern day, the more it loses of that magical mystery, which only historical dramas can conjure.

No such problem with Becoming Elizabeth, which transports viewers back to the murky mid-16th century and the tumultuous early life of Elizabeth I in the years before she ascended to the throne.

Starring Alicia von Rittburg as teenage Elizabeth, the eight-part series begins smack bang in the immediate aftermath of the death of King Henry VIII.

Whether it will have the longevity of The Crown remains to be seen, but this first series is certainly a right royal treat.

Available to watch to watch from Sunday, June 12.

Jennifer Lopez: Halftime (Netflix)

The halftime show at the Superbowl is a big deal.

So when Jennifer Lopez was asked to perform in 2020, she knew it would be one of the most important moments of her whole career.

What better time, then, to invite a camera crew to hang out, follow her through preparations for the performance and to take stock on what’s been a hugely eventful career so far.

Featuring exclusive and intimate access to the star herself, plus interviews with those closest to her – including fiancé Ben Affleck – this feature-length documentary is an access all areas look at every aspect of her life.

Available to watch from Tuesday, June 14.

The Summer I Turned Pretty (Amazon Prime)

They don’t really make shows like The O.C. anymore – a scandal in itself – but this sun-soaked eight-part drama comes pretty close.

Adapted from the book of the same name by Jenny Han, who also wrote To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, it tells the story of teenager Belly, who spends the summer with her mother Laurel and brother at the beautiful coastal home of Laurel’s best friend Susannah.

What already looks set to be a glorious few months turns even more exciting when Belly claps eyes on Susannah’s teenage sons Conrad and Jeremiah.

Next thing you know it, she’s in the middle of a torrid teenage love triangle.

Available to watch from Friday, 17 June.

Home (Apple TV+)

Prepare for some serious house envy, when the show that has a nose around some of the world’s most spectacular and innovative homes returns for a second, ten-part series.

This time, we’re whisked off to exotic locations that include Indonesia, Mexico City, Long Harbour and Ghana.

Highlights include the House of the Big Arch in South Africa, a stunning property hidden deep in the Waterburg mountains nature reserve, and Hourré House a beautifully converted, light-filled old farmhouse in southern France.

Available to watch from Friday, 17 June.

Love, Victor (Disney+)

Sadly, the third series of this enjoyable teen comedy drama is set to be its last.

But before we wave goodbye to Victor and the rest of the gang from Creekwood High School for good, there’s the small matter of Victor deciding who he is, and who he wants to be with – Rahim or Benji.

Fortunately, he has best friend Mia by his side to guide him through the confusing maze of high school life. Inclusive, life-affirming fun.

Available to watch from Wednesday, 15 June.
