What are the odds that Ted Lasso’s (Jason Sudeikis) “truth bomb” that he’s about to deliver to team boss Rebecca (Hannah Waddingham) involves leaving England, and AFC Richmond, for his homeland and family? The Season 3 finale, widely thought to be the series finale (at least of the Emmy-winning show in its current form), could also give happy endings to Nate (Nick Mohammed), who’s poised to return to the team he once betrayed; and to Rebecca, whose ambush by ex-husband Rupert’s (Anthony Head) other wronged women could spell the arch-villain’s downfall. That’s a lot to unpack, but also a lot to anticipate.
Drag Me to Dinner
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are executive producers and guiding spirits of a raucous faux-reality competition in which two teams of drag queens in each episode trade barbs and throw shade while preparing the most outrageous themed dinner parties. Harris judges each effort alongside drag superstar Bianca Del Rio and comedic actress Haneefah Wood. Whoever excels in the categories of food and drink, design and décor, and entertainment and overall vibe will be rewarded with the Glorious Golden Grater. The others will just have to sashay away and try harder next time.

The fourth and final season of the supernatural-laced mystery opens with the amateur sleuth (Kennedy McMann) and her gang investigating the disappearance of bodies from the town cemetery. Were they stolen—or did they somehow rise on their own? Love triangles also bedevil Nancy, who’s still working through the curse that keeps her from acting on her feelings for BFF Ace (Alex Saxon).
Raiders of the Lost Ark
This is how it began, way back in 1981, with Harrison Ford embarking on his rollicking adventures as archeologist adventurer Indiana Jones in a tip of the fedora to classic movie serials. With the latest movie in the franchise, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, scheduled for release at the end of June, Disney+ cranks up the nostalgia dial, streaming Raiders and its three sequels: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008). Also in the catalog: the short-lived TV series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, which aired in 1992-93.
