WHAT TO WATCH 25 June - 1 July

This week's best telly includes the return of Only Murders in the Building, Atlanta and Stranger Things, plus James Corden brings The Late Late Show to London and new cyber thriller The Undeclared War starts on Channel 4.

Here are 5 TV shows you can't miss this week...

1. Only Murders in the Building

Tuesday 28th June on Disney+

From the minds of Steve Martin, Dan Fogelman and John Hoffman, Only Murders in the Building is back for a second season, following the huge success of season one. This comedic murder-mystery series for the ages, follows three strangers, played by Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez who each share an obsession with true crime and suddenly find themselves wrapped up in one.

When a grisly death occurs inside their exclusive Upper West Side apartment building, season one saw the trio suspect murder and employed their precise knowledge of true crime to investigate the truth. As they record a podcast of their own to document the case, the three unravel the complex secrets of the building which stretch back years. Perhaps even more explosive are the lies they tell one another.

Now for season two, following the shocking death of Arconia Board President Bunny Folger, Charles, Oliver and Mabel race to unmask her killer. However, three (unfortunate) complications ensue as the trio are publicly implicated in Bunny's homicide.

They are now the subjects of a competing podcast, and they have to deal with a bunch of New York neighbours who all think they committed murder.

Tuesday 28th June to Friday 1st July at 10pm on Sky Comedy

4. The Undeclared War

Thursday 30th June at 9pm on Channel 4

From Peter Kosminsky, comes The Undeclared War, a new Channel 4 cyber thriller set in 2024 that lifts the veil on the most urgent battle of our time as a leading team of analysts buried in the heart of GCHQ, secretly working to ward off a series of cyber-attacks on the UK in the run-up to a general election.

When a routine stress test of internet infrastructure goes awry, 21-year-old GCHQ intern Saara Parvin, played by newcomer Hannah Khalique-Brown, suddenly finds herself operating on the invisible frontier of high-stakes cyber warfare. Her first day coincides with GCHQ's stress test of the security of the telecommunications infrastructure, during which a significant part of the UK's internet suddenly goes down.

Initially thought to be a consequence of the stress test, it is soon shown to be the result of a more deliberate attack. Saara joins GCHQ's Malware Department, charged with discovering how the virus was unleashed, and quickly finds herself operating on the invisible frontier of high-stakes cyber warfare.

In a thrilling cat-and-mouse game, Saara and the team at GCHQ must try to stay one step ahead and anticipate their opponents' every hidden move. The clock is ticking as a battle with high stakes and unpredictable enemies takes place entirely online, with very real consequences. But how do you win a war that most of the public doesn't know you're fighting?

Also stars Simon Pegg, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Adrian Lester, Alex Jennings, Mark Rylance and Kerry Godliman.

1/6 Continues weekly. All episodes available at launch

5. Stranger Things

Friday 1st July on Netflix

Dropping in two volumes, the first seven episodes from season four of Stranger Things arrived on Netflix towards the end of May and now the wait is over for the final two feature-length episodes, with episode 8 running for 1 hour and 25 minutes and episode 9 running for 2 hours and 20 minutes.

It's been six months since the Battle of Starcourt, which brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time - and navigating the complexities of high school hasn't made things any easier.

In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, might finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.
