All 15 seasons of the hit crime procedural are now joining Disney Plus and it is a good time to watch, as rival streamer Paramount Plus has ordered a revival series. Fingers crossed that the new streaming service will make its way to the UK soon.

Dangerous Minds

Michelle Pfeiffer heads up the cast in this '90s movie about a former marine who takes a teaching job in a rough school with troubled students. It is also the movie that Coolio's Gangsta's Paradise was used for, a tune to which we still know every single word without missing a beat.

Father of the Bride Part 2

If you watched the first movie and found yourself wondering how Steve Martin's character would react if he found out he was about to become a grandfather, then good news! That is exactly what this hit sequel is about.

16th April

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 5

After this, there is only one episode left of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, so expect a big cliffhanger ending for this penultimate instalment!

Another series, Mixed-ish is yet to be added, while Grown-ish has already been renewed for a fourth season (the third is nearing its conclusion in the USA).

The third movie in the Predator franchise, not counting the times the predator went up against an alien, stars Adrien Brody and was released in 2010.

Big Shot

Brand new show, Big Shot stars John Stamos as a basketball coach who gets fired and winds up teaching at an elite all-girls school. New episodes are set to be added weekly.

Earth Moods

We're told that Earth Moods "takes viewers on the ultimate retreat — transporting them to an array of colourful and calming corners of the world... to glaciers, deserts, rainforests and metropolises to escape from everyday life." Sounds glorious.

A sequel to 1991's White Fang, the synopsis for this one reads: "When Jack Conroy goes to San Francisco, he leaves his wolfdog White Fang with his friend, Henry Casey. The two immediately form a bond, but enter trouble when washed up on shore while sailing to bring their gold into town."
