June is shaping up to be quite a month for Apple TV+ with a big slate of new and returning content. The streaming service is experimenting with both the full season "drops" popular on Netflix and an episode-per-week release schedule like the kind on cable or Disney+. Scroll down for a look at how your favorite show will be premiering.
Apple TV+ has made some big strides in the "streaming wars," with a few original series that are now on everybody's watchlist. The service also has some movies that can't be missed — including some documentaries and some upcoming productions. It doesn't hurt that it's an easy sell, either — many people already using iPhones, iPads, MacBooks and Apple TVs to stream find it quite natural to pay a subscription fee to the company.
If you haven't been drawn in by Apple's streaming service yet, this might just be the month. Whether it's a new season of a show you've been meaning to get into or a fresh premiere, it has something for you. Scroll down for a look at all the new titles coming in June.
June 4 - Lisey's Store
Apple TV+ kicks off June with a new Stephen King adaptation called Lisey's Story starring Julianne Moore as the titular character. Lisey Landon is grieving the death of her husband, novelist Scott Landon, though she finds herself plagued by repressed memories of him. Clive Owen plays Scott in flashbacks, with other stars including Joan Allen, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Dane DeHaan.
Lisey's Story was written by King himself and is set up as a limited series, premiering on June 4.prevnext
