All the Sci-Fi TV & Movies Streaming in July 2023: Twisted Metal, Futurama, Good Omens & more

Cool off indoors with a crash course on this summer’s biggest small-screen debuts.

July is a lively month for some streaming platforms and summertime-sleepy on others, but one place that’s putting heavy pedal to the metal this month is Peacock, where the original series adaptation of Twisted Metal revs up to bring the mayhem of the beloved video game franchise over into live action.

Marvel mainstay Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) cuts a wild path through the American post-apocalypse as Twisted Metal’s John Doe, the hapless lone driver who finds himself surrounded by the same crash-’n’-burn lunacy that’s long endeared the iconic games to more than one generation of PlayStation fans.

Along for the wild ride are Will Arnett and pro wrestler Joe Seanoa (aka Samoa Joe), providing the one-two acting punch (with Arnett on voice duty and Samoa Joe on camera) that powers killer clown and Twisted Metal fan favorite Sweet Tooth. Stephanie Beatriz (Encanto, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Thomas Haden Church (Sideways, Divorce, Spider-Man: No Way Home), and Neve Campbell (Scream) also star, with all 10 episodes set to cause cartoonishly comedic carnage beginning July 27 on Peacock.

Looking beyond the bird app, Hulu may have this month’s biggest small-screen streaming score with the hugely hyped return of Matt Groening’s Futurama. Fry, Leela, Bender, and the gang are all heading back to TV a whole decade after leaving Futurama in, well, the past, with John DiMaggio, Billy West, Katey Sagal, and tons more reprising their beloved roles as one of the biggest animated hits of any era counts down to its July 24 “Season 11” premiere. For good measure, July also marks the Season 5 return of What We Do in the Shadows, which bites back to FX (as well as premium Hulu subscribers) platform beginning July 14.

Prime Video has one especially auspicious premiere in July, as David Tennant and Michael Sheen join supernatural forces once more for the Season 2 debut of Good Omens. Sprung from the divinely fertile sci-fi mind of Neil Gaiman, the series reunites its star duo as unlikely allies bending the rules to forge an Earthly partnership that taps the opposing forces of Heaven and Hell, with Good Omens set to bestow its demented blessings once more in a six-episode run that descends on the platform beginning July 28.

It feels like an eon since Foundation first blasted off at Apple TV+, but the Isaac Asimov-based sci-fi series is back this month with an all-new second season that skips ahead more than 100 years in the story’s expansive timeline. Season 2 of Foundation drops its first installment on July 14, with new entries in the 10-episode season arriving weekly thereafter at Apple TV+.

Elsewhere, Max brings back Kaley Cuoco and her sassy mouth as Season 4 of Harley Quinn gets animated, in an adult sort of way, starting on July 27. Disney+, meanwhile, keeps the Marvel intrigue brewing with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) as new episodes of Secret Invasion continue to arrive in July, while debuting a string of animated shorts (like “Steamboat Silly” starring Mickey Mouse) that take their inspiration from Disney’s old-school cartoon classics. Last but not least, The Witcher tosses a final coin to outgoing star Henry Cavill at Netflix, where the second batch of Season 3 episodes draws its sword for a July 27 premiere.
