The other big premiere this week is the third season of The Bear, which drops all 10 episodes on Thursday, June 27. As the saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, so expect more of the same brilliance: intense action, high-energy performances, and Carmy striving to find fulfillment through his work (and maybe his personal life).

I guess it’s appropriate that the stress-inducing—though amazing!—Bear premieres the same day as Biden and Trump go head-to-head in CNN’s election debate. As of now, we won’t be getting the typical three presidential debates spread out over September and October as in usual election years, so it will be this debate, plus one more in the fall.

But if you thrive on scary stuff, you’re in luck because A Quiet Place: Day One also premieres this week. As well as another episode of House of the Dragon, which airs tonight on HBO and Max.

On the other hand, there are plenty of new films and shows that won’t spike your anxiety, like the beautiful documentary An Emperor’s Jewel, on Prime Video, as well as Diane von Furstenberg: Woman in Charge on Hulu and I Am: Celine Dion on Prime Video. And Hallmark’s Christmas in July gets underway at the end of the week, so take solace from the heat wave encompassing most of the country and trick yourself into thinking about cooler temps.

With that, I’ll see you back here as Wimbledon gets underway. Perhaps we’ll get another appearance from the Princess of Wales.

Diane von Furstenberg: Woman in Charge (Hulu): The inspiring documentary about the visionary designer is co-directed by two-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Trish Dalton. Von Furstenberg challenged the status quo by asking, “Why can’t a woman do what a man does?” It’s all the more impressive when you consider that she was raising two kids as a single woman and also facing a cancer diagnosis.
