Netflix has renewed Blood & Water for a fourth season. Production on the South African series has already begun. After crossing paths at a party, a Cape Town teen sets out to prove whether a private-school swimming star is her sister who was abducted at birth. 

Season two of Minx will premiere on Starz July 21. Set in 1970s Los Angeles, the series centers around Joyce, an earnest young feminist who joins forces with a low-rent publisher to create the first erotic magazine for women.

Docuseries Quarterback will premiere on Netflix July 12. The series features exclusive, unprecedented access to Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota from the beginning of the 2022 season to its conclusion, following them on and off the field, from inside the huddle with teammates to inside their homes with their families. The series features behind-the-scenes of the biggest moments of the season, as Mahomes set an NFL record for total offense on his way to winning the league and Super Bowl MVP awards; Cousins engineered the greatest comeback in NFL history and led the Minnesota Vikings to an NFC North Division title; and Mariota took over as the starting quarterback with the Atlanta Falcons. 

Nimona premieres on Netflix June 30. A knight framed for a tragic crime teams with a scrappy, shape-shifting teen to prove his innocence. But what if she’s the monster he’s sworn to destroy? Chloë Grace Moretz and Riz Ahmed star in the epic comedy adventure based on the bestselling graphic novel.

Apple TV+ has renewed Silo for a second season. The series is the story of the last ten thousand people on earth, their mile-deep home protecting them from the toxic and deadly world outside. However, no one knows when or why the silo was built and any who try to find out face fatal consequences. Rebecca Ferguson stars as Juliette, an engineer, who seeks answers about a loved one’s murder and tumbles onto a mystery that goes far deeper than she could have ever imagined, leading her to discover that if the lies don’t kill you, the truth will.
