“Good heroes, bad heroes”: In June, “Ms. Marvel” and “The Boys” will bring very different superheroes into the living room.

The reorientation of a cult sitcom, beloved gangsters from Birmingham or very different superheroes. June has a lot in store for series junkies – thanks to “How I Met Your Father”, “Peaky Blinders”, “Ms. Marvel” and “The Boys”.


In the US, the first season of “How I Met Your Father” came out quite a while ago. In Germany, it will take until June 8 before the offshoot of “How I Met Your Mother” appears on Disney. For fans of the original sitcom about Ted Mosby’s (Josh Radnor, 47) desperate and at times tragic love quest, “HIMYF” offers numerous tributes. And this despite the fact that the main cast is completely new (and much more diverse) than the original. The focus of the story this time is single Sophie, played by Hilary Duff (34) – and in the older version by Kim Cattrall (65).

Those who prefer Marvel series instead of comedy will also get more from June 8 thanks to “Ms. Marvel”. The miniseries is part of the fourth phase of the MCU and will also serve to launch the movie “The Marvels”, which is announced for 2023. “Ms. Marvel” is about the first Muslim superhero, the only 16-year-old student Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani, 19). She is a big fan girl of the Avengers, especially Captain Marvel has done it to her. Lo and behold: One day, Kahn will also enjoy superpowers – the birth of Ms. Marvel.

Amazon Prime Video

“The Boys” on Amazon Prime Video offers completely different and definitely adult superhero entertainment. The series, in which the supposed heroes, above all Superman blend Homelander (Antony Starr, 46), turn out to be the actual villains, will start its third season on June 3rd. The first trailer for this, which was published in mid-May, shows that the signs could change in the unequal fight against “the Supes” – after all, their worst adversary aka Billy Butcher (Karl Urban, 49) also gains supernatural powers in it.


Meanwhile, Netflix heralds the beginning of the end of the gangster series “Peaky Blinders” from June 10th. Then the sixth and final season starts about the “Gangs of Birmingham”. Once again, Cillian Murphy (45) slips into his role as the reluctant underground mastermind Tommy Shelby, who would actually like to earn his living legally.

The comedy series “God’s Favorite Idiot” with Melissa McCarthy (51) and Ben Falcone (48) will offer lighter fare from June 15th. In it, the unassuming IT technician Clark (Falcone) falls in love with his colleague Amily (McCarthy). As if that wasn’t enough stress, he soon finds out that God has chosen him to prevent the coming apocalypse!

Those who mourn series like “Buffy: The Vampire Slayer”, “Vampire Diaries” or “True Blood” will get “Bloodsucker Meets Love Story” replenishment from June 10 with the new Netflix series “First Kill”. To be more precise, bloodsucker, because the focus of the plot of the young-adult series is the forbidden love of the vampire Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook) for the vampire slayer Calliope (Imani Lewis).


The adventures of “Young Rock” will continue on Sky from June 13th. The sitcom shows the fictionalized youth of Hollywood superstar Dwayne Johnson (50), which he reviews in the course of his (probably also fictional?) presidential candidacy in 2032. Season two will also show him again in the most important phases of his childhood, adolescence and early adult life – just like the previously announced third season.

Also on Sky, Queen Latifah (52) once again ensures fair conditions in the second season of “The Equalizer”. It is a reboot of the series “The Equalizer – The Guardian Angel of New York”, which ran from 1985-1989. Denzel Washington (67) has already slipped into the role of the savior of the poor and weak on the screen. And here’s good news for fans of the series: In addition to the second season of “The Equalizer”, which will start on June 20th, it was recently confirmed that two more seasons have been commissioned.
