Apple’s streaming subscription TV+ launched with just a handful of shows to its name, but a steady flow of new content is opening up. The critically acclaimed immigration anthology Little America was added to the service a few days ago, and Apple has revealed more about what’s coming in the next few months. Here’s what we’ve got to look forward to:
Mythic Banquet: Raven’s Banquet, a game development comedy from the creators of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, is available from February 7, while Steven Spielberg’s much-anticipated reboot of classic sci-fi anthology Amazing Stories will land a month later on March 6.
On April 3 we’ll get child-journalist mystery series Home Before Dark, followed by Defending Jacob on April 24, a crime drama with megastar Chris Evans.
Two notable documentary series are incoming over the next few months: Home, which takes a look as some of the most unusual and innovating housing around the world, and Dear…, a show that profiles celebrities by examining their fan mail.
May 1 sees the first UK-based original, the relationship comedy Trying, while Central Park, a new animated comedy from the makers of Bob’s Burgers, will be added to the service sometime in the Summer. Apple has also secured the rights to Beastie Boys Story, a hip-hop documentary film helmed by Spike Jonze.
If you’ve not yet explored the TV+ library, you might find something to draw you in from this latest batch of high-budget originals. Everything found on the service is a home-brewed exclusive, and Apple is hoping to entice new subscribers with these originals. TV+ costs $5/£5 monthly, but the first week is free and Apple is still giving away yearly subscriptions with many purchases from the Apple Store.
