From Julianna Margulies in “Dietland” and a new show from the “Glee” creator to a TV adaptation of “Three Days of the Condor” and an explosive “Sense8” finale, here are five must-see TV shows to catch in June.
Ryan Murphy returns to FX with a new show called “Pose,” set in 1980s New York. The “Glee” and “American Horror Story” creator’s latest offering is a dance musical exploring the juxtaposition of several segments of society in the city, including the rise of the luxury Trump-era world, the downtown social and literary scene, and ball culture. The show features 50-plus LGBTQ characters and stars Evan Peters, Kate Mara and James Van Der Beek.
Premieres: June 3 on FX.
Two years after “The Good Wife” ended, Julianna Margulies returns to the small screen in “Dietland.” Based on the books of the same name by Sarai Walker, the show tells the story of Plum Kettle, an obese ghostwriter living in New York. After deciding to undergo weight loss surgery, her world is upturned by two rival feminist factions. Julianna Margulies plays the editor of the fashion magazine for which Plum writes.
Premieres: June 4 on AMC and June 5 on Amazon Prime Video.
This new 10-episode drama series is based on Sydney Pollack’s 1975 espionage movie “Three Days of the Condor.” Like the movie, the show follows CIA analyst Joe Turner, played by Robert Redford in the big screen version. The agent’s idealism is tested when he joins the CIA hoping to reform it from within but discovers a terrible but brilliant plan that threatens the lives of millions. Forty-three years after the original, British actor Max Irons steps into the lead role.
Premieres: June 6 on Audience Network.
The show returns for an explosive final foray on Netflix. “Sense8” bows out with an exceptional two-and-a-half-hour episode. For this last installment, the group reunites to take down BPO and protect the future of all “sensates.”
Screens June 8 on Netflix.
In this modern-day TV Western, Kevin Costner plays a ranch owner battling against developers and politicians to keep his land. The show is written and directed by Taylor Sheridan, who penned the “Sicario” movie and its sequel, coming in June. The American filmmaker’s “Wind River” also won the Best Director prize in the Un Certain Regard section of last year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Premieres: June 20 on Paramount Network.
