Our selection includes a little of everything after a morning at the beach: epic adventures, royal dramas, magical universes populated by adorable monsters and lots of comedy.
1. Ted Lasso (Apple TV+)
On July 23, our favorite soccer coach returns to Apple TV+, who in his first season aroused the suspicion of the team and the media due to his naivety and inexperience. The series was received to widespread critical acclaim, and everything indicates that this second installment of the series is willing to maintain the same comic tone that characterized its predecessor.
2. Red Sky (Netflix)
The 23rd is a day for returns, as the second season of “Red Sky”, the most recent work from the creator of “Money Heist” with Esther Martínez Lobato, will also be available on Netflix. Episode one will see us follow the trail of Coral, Wendy and Gina, who above all, want to escape from their pimps and from anyone who deprives them of the free will they deserve. Apparently, the escape operation is getting more and more difficult, but they aren’t giving up, because now they are more united than ever.
3. The White Lotus (HBO)
On the heels of “Enlightened,” film director Mike White continues his HBO adventures with “The White Lotus,” a new comedy-drama set in a tropical resort that focuses on several guests’ vacation experiences and employees over the course of a vacation week. Episode one is available on July 11.
4. Atypical (Netflix)
Season four of “Atypical”, which will be released on the ninth day of the month, gives us a fresh chance to witness how young Sam, who borders on autism, continues his journey of self-discovery and awareness in this comedy drama. Undoubtedly, this series has secured a diehard hardcore fan base who, according to screenwriter Robia Rashid, won’t be disappointed by the hope-inspiring end in store for them all.
5. El Cid (Prime Video)
This summer, specifically on the 15th, Amazon opens its doors to adventure with the second part of “El Cid”, one of the series that has catapulted Spanish actor Jaime Lorente to fame, in this case in the role of Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, starring in the story of the man behind the legend. The images of the trailer prep us for plenty of blood, ferocity and epic adventure, as the story picks up after the death of King Ferdinand.
6. Young Royals (Netflix)
Netflix will be playing host to this Swedish drama about a prince who, far from his royal obligations, has the opportunity to discover himself until he realizes that he has to occupy first place in the line of succession. The series premieres on July 1, and then we can decide whether it deserves to be up there with the likes of “Bridgerton” and “The Crown”.
7. Monsters at Work (Disney +)
Both the little ones in the house, as well as the adults who refuse to renounce the pacifier are in luck, as the Pixar factory lands on the small screen with a series that gives continuity to the famous film “Monsters Inc.”. The renowned filmmaker and animator Pete Docter (“Up”, “Soul”) is leading the project, which will be ready in time for San Fermín, on July 7th. The story picks up six months after where the original left off back in 2001.
8. Supernormal (Movistar +)
On July 9, Movistar + seems to respond to “Atypical” with “Supernormal”, a comic series directed by the filmmaker Emilio Martínez-Lázaro that will follow the tender but demanding Patricia, a top executive in an investment bank who is also married with children, and who’ll need all the help her secretary and her family can give her to cope with all their issues. With San Sebastian-born actress Miren Ibarguren, whose last participation on television was with Paco León in “Arde Madrid”, leads the cast.
