 Need some help discovering what to watch, listen to, read, or catch-up on in the world of TV? This is the place! 

That’s right, y’all: Raylan Givens is BACK! Justified: City Primeval made it’s World Premiere debut on Opening Night of ATX TV Festival Season 12, and its FX premiere is just around the corner (July 18).


Check out the trailer above and stay tuned for our Opening Night Q&A with star/executive producer Timothy Olyphant, cast members Boyd Holbrook, Adelaide Clemens, Vivian Olyphant, and executive producer Sarah Timberman, coming to YouTube later this month! 


So much TV. So little time to watch. Here’s what you should be watching this month.


Why: We have been waiting for Dark Winds season two ever since we premiered the pilot at opening night of ATX TV Season 11, and it’s finally here. This psychological thriller follows two Navajo police officers in the 1970s Southwest. The series is a take on a western procedural that shines a spotlight on an underrepresented heritage and culture, which is something we can’t wait to see more of for season 2!


When: Season 2 premieres July 30 on AMC/AMC+

– Chakadra Ward, Programming Assistant


Why: So many reasons! Number 1: Raylan and Willa Givens – the father-daughter duo we never knew we needed. Raylan and Willa are played by real life father-daughter duo, Timothy and Vivian Olyphant, and let us be the first to tell you – they knock it out of the park. These two are amazing on screen together…add in serial killer Clement Mansel, (played by the brilliant Boyd Holbrook) and you have a rockstar cast. This series is funny, action packed, and suspenseful. Bottom line – this series is excellent on all fronts and deserves all of your attention. 


When: Series premieres July 18 on FX, streaming the next day on Hulu.

MAYANS M.C. (FX / Hulu)

Why: It’s the series finale! For five seasons we have seen the struggles of Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes as he’s made his way from prospect to Vice Presidente to Presidente of the Mayans M.C., Santo Padre Charter. As EZ has gotten pulled deeper into the club life, he has been on a journey of vengeance driven by his own desire for power and we’ve seen the ripple effect it has had on every member of the club, including his brother, Angel Reyes. Whether or not you agree with EZ’s methods, you still find yourself rooting for him – something we find ourselves often doing. This series is a brilliant take on the other side of a war between two motorcycle clubs dating back to 2008, and we can’t wait to see how it ends. 


When: Wednesdays on FX at 10/9c and the series finale airs July 19 on FX.

MINX (Starz)

Why: Sexy, funny, and back from cancellation (thank you, Starz!), MINX is exactly what you want in a summer show. If you missed season one, here’s what you need to know: MINX is set in the 1970’s and follows 2nd Wave feminist Joyce Prigger (Ophelia Lovibond) as she chases her dream to publish a feminist magazine. In order to publish her magazine she must make some interesting compromises laid out by her publisher, Doug (Jake Johnson). With a supporting cast featuring Lennon Parham, Idara Victor, Jessica Lowe, and a plethora of deep V’s, you really can’t go wrong.


When: Season 2 premieres July 21 on Starz.

– Jenn Morgan, director of programming


Why: This Fool is back for Season 2 at the end of the month — which means you have time to catch up on its hilarious first season without breaking a sweat. The series follows Julio (Chris Estrada), “a punk-ass bitch with a heart of gold,” his newly-released-from-prison cousin Luis (Frankie Quinones), and a motley crew of supporting characters — i.e. Minister Payne (a dry, comedic turn from the brilliant Michael Imperioli) and Chef Percy (the very funny Jamar Malachi Neighbors) – as they navigate working-class life in South Central LA. If you’re looking for a laugh-out-loud half-hour, Estrada and Quinones got you. Trust us on this one. 


When: Season 2 premieres July 28 on Hulu; Season 1 is streaming now.

– Jenn Morgan, Director of Programming

ROACH (Prime Video)

The one woman show-turned-hit podcast-turned-series arrives hot off the fryer on July 7, and we couldn’t be more ready for Justina Machado’s turn as “Magic Hands” Dolores in this horror-comedy from Aaron Mark (+ executive producer & ATX TV Advisory Board Members Gloria Calderón Kellett!). A little bit Sweeney Todd, a little bit Dexter, some fresh empanadas… what could go wrong?

(Prime Video)

Want a new show to binge this summer? We have the perfect recommendation for you – The Lake. This comedy series is witty and lighthearted, and about reconnecting with family. It stars Jordan Gavaris as Justin, a man who plans to reconnect with his teenage daughter he gave up for adoption by taking her to their family cottage, only to find out his parents left the cottage to his step-sister played by Julia Stiles. You can watch (or rewatch) seasons 1 and 2 on Prime Video.
