Also premiering on streaming is Apple TV+‘s The Crowded Room (June 9), in which Tom Holland plays a man arrested for a shocking crime and Amanda Seyfried the investigator out to solve the mystery.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia returns (June 7 on FXX), with more shenanigans and guest stars including Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul. Freeform brings a new mystery and cast (and again, multiple time periods) for Cruel Summer Season 2 (June 5).
Over on Fox on Stars on Mars (June 5), celebrities must complete missions while living in an authentic simulated Mars base, with William Shatner serving as mission control and one contestant voted out each week. And on June 11 are the Tony Awards (CBS), celebrating excellence on Broadway and continuing as an unscripted telecast as planned.
