WHAT’S NEW ON PARAMOUNT+
It’s the final chapter of Liza Miller’s story. It’s been a long wait between seasons for fans of Younger, especially after that jaw-dropping proposal cliffhanger. Will Liza say yes to Charles’ impromptu marriage proposal? Series star Sutton Foster seems to think the answer is complicated. When the series returns April 15 with the first four episodes on Paramount+ (subsequent episodes drop weekly), Liza’s personal life is on shaky ground as she tries to stay true to herself. And after a setback at work, Kelsey doubts her career decisions and discovers a new creative outlet. Meanwhile, Maggie gets canceled.
The half-hour comedy goes animated for the upcoming fourth season, which drops April 8. This season, Special Agent Nick Cullen (Patrick Brammall) finally realizes his dream of joining the FBI, only to quickly discover being an FBI “special agent” isn’t what he expected it to be. When he’s assigned to a seemingly dull observation detail, he finds a potential career case in the form of an emerging cult, and when a large scale operation takes aim at the cult, it’s unclear which side will break first. Despite the promotion, Cullen’s path continues to cross with former partner Judd Tolbeck’s (Tim Meadows), who is also adjusting to life with a new partner of his own.
For Heaven’s Sake
The series, from executive producers of American Vandal, blends comedy with crime docs as it follows the search for Harold Heaven, who mysteriously disappeared from his remote cabin in Ontario, Canada, in the winter of 1934. Eighty-five years later, his great-great-nephew, Mike, attempts to solve this coldest of cold cases, with the help of his extended family and true-crime-obsessed best friend, Jackson.
Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years
A prequel to the original SpongeBob SquarePants series, Kamp Koral takes viewers back in time, when SpongeBob and his friends were kids meeting at their undersea camp for the first time.
The Real World Homecoming: New York
Real World Homecoming reunites all seven members of the original cast in the same New York City loft, as they revisit the shocking moments and explosive issues that transpired during the historic 1992 season and discuss how they parallel in today’s social climate. Becky Blasband, Andre Comeau, Heather B. Gardner, Julie Gentry, Norman Korpi, Eric Nies (who won’t be present in the loft) and Kevin Powell will look at how the series has changed their lives since the cameras stopped rolling.
SpongeBob SquarePants: Sponge on the Run
In the latest CG-animated movie, SpongeBob SquarePants, his best friend, Patrick, and the Bikini Bottom gang take on their most epic adventure yet. When SpongeBob’s beloved pet snail, Gary, goes missing, a path of clues leads SpongeBob and Patrick to the powerful King Poseidon, who has Gary held captive in the Lost City of Atlantic City. On their mission to save Gary, SpongeBob and his pals team up for a heroic and hilarious journey where they discover nothing is stronger than the power of friendship. Keanu Reeves, Awkwafina, Danny Trejo, Snoop Dogg and Tiffany Haddish also appear.
WHAT’S CURRENTLY STREAMING
The Good Fight
A sequel spinoff of The Good Wife, the series follows Christine Baranski’s Diane Lockhart on her next chapter in her professional career and personal life.
The reality show introduced the world to Snooki, The Situation, JWoww, DJ Pauly D and more as eight housemates live under the same roof in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. The cast traveled to South Beach, Florida, in season 2 and were based in Florence, Italy, in season 4.
