Fans have already seen two seasons of Sir Patrick Stewart taking on his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard once more, who he previously portrayed Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Star Trek: Picard follows Jean-Luc in the next phase of his life, and covers issues that come up in the last stage of a person’s life.
It recently aired a mega season two and the third and final season expected to premiere in early 2023
Halo is an adaptation of the popular video game (Picture: Paramount Plus)
Halo, based on the hit video game, follows an epic 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant. It weaves ‘deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future’.
It originally premiered back in March, and has already been renewed for a second season. After the first three episodes of Halo become available tomorrow (22nd June), the rest of the series will be released on a weekly basis for fans to enjoy.
The First Lady

Now, this has to be one of the most anticipated dramas of the year, with a gorgeous cast led by Michelle Pfeiffer, Viola Davis, and Gillian Anderson,
Viewers will see the three women portray the life and family events of three First Ladies of the United States: Eleanor Roosevelt, Betty Ford, and Michelle Obama.
While the series has been met with mixed reviews so far, we still think the 10 episodes are worth a good go.
