Check out our picks for the week of June 11 to 17 below. Your eyes and your ears will thank us!
Incredibles 2 (June 15): It took 14 years, but the Incredibles sequel is finally here! The Parr family have been chosen for a mission to help make supers liked again, and they’re looking to Elastigirl — AKA Mrs. Incredible — to lead the way. Mr. Incredible stays home to look after the kids while she’s out doing good, and as baby Jack-Jack’s superpowers start to develop, it becomes more of a challenge than he originally anticipated. From the animation to the laughter to the message of household equality, Incredibles 2 is classic Pixar. Check it out in theaters starting June 15. (Photo via Disney=Pixar)
The Bold Type (June 12):The Bold Type returns for season 2 on June 12, and while season 1 did a fantastic job of covering topical and realistic issues facing young women within the fashion world and beyond — most notably sexual harassment and assault — showrunner Amanda Lasher says they’ll branch out to look at other hot topics such as body positivity, slut-shaming, and racial identity going forward. Watch the season 2 premiere Tuesday, June 12, at 8pm ET on Freeform. (Photo via Freeform/Ed Herrera)
Queer Eye (June 15): Can you believe?! The Fab Five are already back with new Queer Eye episodes on Netflix, and we couldn’t be happier. Season 2 will feature the first woman to get a makeover on the show, as well as Skyler, a trans man who just wants to “be visible and be present and let everybody know that I’m okay.” Get ready to cry even more than you did in season 1.

Unladylike: A new podcast asks, “What happens when women break the rules?” Hosts Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin (formerly of Stuff Mom Never Told You), profile women who live their lives outside of the traditional expectations of how they “should,” and the results are both entertaining and enlightening. Download Unladylike wherever you get your podcasts or check it out through their website.
Christina Aguilera, Liberation (June 15): After six long years without new music, Christina Aguilera returns with her comeback album Liberation. With production from Kanye West, Mike Dean, and Charlie Heat, and guests including Demi Lovato, 2 Chainz, Ty Dolla $ign, the pop diva is taking her music into hip-hop infused territory, and it sounds good on her.

Set It Up (June 15): Your favorite romcom of the summer is the latest from Netflix. Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell star as a two overworked, under-appreciated assistants who try to make their bosses, Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs, fall in love. As the two underlings plot and scheme together, they get even closer — and you can probably see where this is going. As a bonus, Set It Up comes from prolific comedic TV director Claire Scanlon (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Office), so chances are it’s gonna be a good one. Check it out on Netflix on June 15.
