WATCH: This Is Us - the official trailer for the final season

This is Us season six – Disney+

The sixth and final season of tear-jerking drama, This Is Us, is out now and we reckon plenty of fans are going to be powering through the emotional episodes this weekend. The long-running drama has been going since 2016, so it's naturally going to be difficult to wave goodbye to 'The Big Three': Kevin, Kate and Randall. You're going to need tissues by the dozen for this.

Black-ish season eight – Disney+

Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson are back for a brand new season of the brilliantly clever and funny, Black-ish. However, like This Is Us, it's bittersweet because season eight marks the end of the show. New episodes will once again take a look at the Johnson family and the show promises more laughs and antics, but also hints at some big changes ahead as the series draws to a close.


Michelle Obama even had a cameo in episode one!

Star Wars: The Book Of Boba Fett – Disney+

This thrilling new spin-off is sure to wet the appetite of hard-core Star Wars fans. As the synopsis explains, the show focuses on legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and Fennec Shand  as they "[navigate] the Galaxy's underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate."
