If you're looking for something new to watch this week, you're in luck - there are plenty of brand-new series and returning favourites to look forward to across a range of platforms and channels.


At the start of the week, Love Island favourites Ekin-Su and Davide are back on our screens in a new ITV2 series which sees them on the road around Italy and Turkey.

The BBC also has a new competition series called The Traitors coming up, and if you've been enjoying watching Claudia Winkleman on Strictly Come Dancing then she's back here to host. It's a psychological mystery series which we're sure will keep people guessing and bring a new favourite to BBC One and iPlayer.

Meanwhile, when it comes to drama, Alfred Molina is bringing Louise Penny's book series detective Armand Gamache to the screen in new Prime Video mystery series Three Pines, while fantasy fans can get their fill on Disney Plus, where 1988 film Willow is finally getting a follow-up in the form of an eight-part series.

When it comes to returning series, there are also second seasons of drama Firefly Lane and spy thriller Slow Horses to look out for on Netflix and Apple TV+ respectively, so fans of those shows should know to mark their calendars.
