Arrow Season 6 and Supernatural Season 13

Arriving May 25th

Arriving both on the same day are the two other massive hit shows for The CW.

Supernatural is the series that just won’t die which is fitting given it covers immortal beings and all things supernatural.


The Break with Michelle Wolf

Arriving May 27th

Netflix has had a rocky relationship with talk shows so far has failed to really find a format that fits the so-called Netflix model. Chelsea never really found an audience and The Joel McHale Show has already shifted its format. Now it’s the turn of Michelle Wolf to give it a shot. You’ll know Michelle mainly for her voice and her appearances on The Daily Show as well as her controversial speech at the press correspondents dinner. This is a new weekly comedy show that will no doubt feature plenty of politics so be warned.
