HBO’s new series The Third Day looks promising, and I was looking forward to seeing it next month. Sadly, I – and everyone else – will have to wait a little longer. The series is the latest bit of entertainment that’s had to shuffle its release due to the coronavirus outbreak, and now won’t be premiering until the fall. But in the meantime, you can check out a new trailer below.

We just got a Killing Eve season 3 trailer last week, but hey, one more won’t hurt. The BBC/AMC series is returning this month with all new cat and mouse games between enemies and would-be lovers Villanelle (Jodie Comer) and Eve (Sandra Oh). Season 2 ended with Villanelle thinking she had killed Eve – but of course, Eve is still alive, and that’s going to complicate things. Watch the latest trailer below.

We are in April now, which means the dawn of Quibi is almost upon us. The streaming service is devoted to short-form content – 5 to 10-minute episodes that you can quickly watch on your phone. Some of the programs Quibi has lined-up seem…odd, to say the least (there’s one show where chefs get shot in the face with food cannons). And then there are more traditional-sounding titles, like 50 States of Fright. This series, from executive producer Sam Raimi, explores urban legends from across the country. And you know what? It looks pretty darn creepy.

Quibi is still on track to debut on April 6, even in the face of a lawsuit trying to stop them, bringing a cavalcade of new movies (in chapters) and TV shows that you’ll be able to stream to your phone. You probably won’t be watching this stuff on-the-go as Quibi originally intended, at least not while the coronavirus outbreak is still spreading across the globe, but you can still check them out from the comfort of your own home. Plus, T-Mobile will let you get a free Quibi subscription for a year
On top of that, we have two new trailers for Quibi programming, one with Chance the Rapper rebooting the prank show Punk’d that once thrived at MTV, and the other a Jennifer Lopez-produced series called Thanks a Million, bringing some much needed heart-warming kindness to the table by having a celebrity or public figure giving $100,000 to an unsuspecting individual who must pay it forward to help others in their community.

Calling all teens and people who still wish they were teens: Netflix has a new show for you. It’s called Outer Banks, and it’s about a group of youths gettin’ rowdy on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. But their plans to have fun in the sun go topsy-turvy when they go searching for $400 million in gold.. It’s kind of like The Goonies, but everyone is much, much more attractive, and all the “teens” are played by 20-somethings. Watch the Outer Banks trailer below!

Since directing Brie Larson to an Oscar win in 2015’s Room, Irish writer/director Lenny Abrahamson has been fairly quiet, directing only a couple episodes of a TV series called Chance and a single feature, the 2018 horror mystery The Little Stranger, which starred Domhnall Gleeson. Now Abrahamson has returned to his home country as one of the two directors of Normal People, a new Hulu co-production with the BBC which focuses on two young lovers from Ireland who find themselves on opposite sides of a class divide.
