Binged out on other streaming shows? Check out Apple TV+’s line-up from the funny to gritty. Starting with creative animation Luck to the very last chapter of American science fiction See, here are five Apple TV+ shows to take you to the next season
Start your month fresh with Apple TV+’s first animated featured film Luck, scheduled to be released on August 5.
The film was made in an exclusive deal with one of America’s best-known animation media, Skydance.
The story takes you into the life story of Sam Greenfield, who arguably has the worst luck in the world. The only way for her to escape from these life struggles is to find the Land of Luck – a secret place where moments are categorised as “lucky” and “unlucky” – and change her pre-planned fate.
Of course, what is an adventure with the protagonist’s closest relationships? In this case, mythical creatures like a talking black cat, a dragon, and something… quite similar to both.
The voices of famous actresses add up the liveliness to the animation. American actress, Eva Noblezada, takes the role of Sam Greenfield, followed by Lil Rel Howery, Simon Pegg, Jane Fonda, Whoopi Goldberg and more.
Apple TV+ finally releases its new limited medical series Five Days At Memorial on August 12th. The show is an adaptation of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Sheri Fink’s novel of the same name. The story chronicles the impact of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath on those at a memorial hospital in New Orleans. With floodwater devastating the city, we catch the stories of those who landed in the hospital’s intensive care unit which is suffering from five days of power failures.
The series has eight episodes in total. The first three episodes are planned for their global debut on August 12th. New episodes are released every Friday.
The Conjuring actress, Vera Farmiga, stars as Dr Anna Pou who leads the chaotic situation at this New Orlean hospital with Robert Pine, Cherry Jones, Adepero Oduye, Cornelius Smith Jr, Julie Ann Emery and others.

The black comedy thriller Bad Sisters stars Sharon Horgan, alongside Anne-Marie Duff (Suffragette, The Salisbury Poisonings), Eva Birthistle (Brooklyn, The Last Kingdom), Sarah Greene (Frank of Ireland, Dublin Murders) and Eve Hewson (Behind her Eyes, The Luminaries) as the Garvey sisters. The show makes its debut on Apple TV+ on August 19th. The story follows the Garvey women uniting in a somewhat religious event through the tragedy of their parents’ death.
The show begins on the day the sisters lose their parents. As each of the Garvey sisters promises each other to always protect one another no matter what happens, these promises inevitably lead to upcoming chaos.
Sharon Horgan is also co-director on the show. Apart from the sisters, the series includes impressive castings of Claes Bang, Brian Gleeson, Daryl McCormack, Assaad Bouab, and more.
The series serves a total of ten parts. The first two parts are listed for its global showcase on August 19th and new episodes follow every Friday through to October 14th. Join the Bad Sisters in their comedic but thrilling moments of chaos!
Enjoy mid-August with some family time. Apple TV+ brings the bestselling kids novel Surfside Girls by Kim Dwinell to life on August 19th. The storyline of the film follows the novel, starting on a sunny day with two friends, Sam (Miya Cech) and Jade (YaYa Gosselin), who are looking forward to a summer riding the waves.
The duo embark on a journey unravelling supernatural mysteries after they see the pirate ghost, Remi (Spencer Hermes-Rebello), at a California beach town. Sam’s imagination and Jade’s logic are put to the test as they solve the mystery and save Surfside.
Surfside Girls casts Cech from Marvelous and the Black Hole, Gosselin from We Can Be Heroes, and Troppo actor Spencer Hermes-Rebello. The synergy between these young stars delivers a strong tension to the plot. Do not miss out on this adventurous journey to saving California’s Surfside.
