Netflix in May sees Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story expand the story universe of Shonda Rhimes’s popular Regency romance series. The highly-anticipated prequel series takes place over two timelines and follows young Queen Charlotte (India Amarteifio) as she prepares to marry King George of England (Corey Mylchreest). Also exploring the origin stories of Violet Bridgerton (Connie Jenkins-Greig) and Lady Danbury (Arsema Thomas), played by Ruth Gemmell and Adjoa Andoh on the flagship series, the king and queen’s love story proves to be the catalyst for a societal shift that paves the way for the Bridgerton world we all know.

Action fans should mark their calendars for FUBAR, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first-ever television series. The espionage comedy series follows Luke (Schwarzenegger), a CIA operative on the verge of retirement, who finds out his daughter Emma (Monica Barbaro) has been doubling as a secret agent without his knowing. This discovery, along with a connection from the past, forces him back into the field for one final mission. Fortune Feimster, Milan Carter, Gabriel Luna, and Jay Baruchel also star.

On the YA romance tip, XO, Kitty follows Kitty Song Covey (Anna Cathcart), the youngest Covey sister and teen matchmaker from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, as she embarks on a journey to South Korea to reunite with her long-distance boyfriend Dae (Minyeong Choi), who recently has been seeing a secret girlfriend. She may excel in creating love connections for others, but she soon learns her own love life needs an overhaul.

Reality makeover hit Queer Eye is back for its seventh season and, this time, Tan France, Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, and Antoni Porowski are setting their transformative sights on New Orleans.
