Designated Survivor 

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

This political drama, which stars Kiefer Sutherland as a low-level cabinet member who was elevated to President of the United States when a catastrophic terrorist attack ravages the capitol during the State of the Union, has returned for season 3 — this time on Netflix, which revived the series after ABC canceled it at after two seasons. While its years at ABC focused on President Kirkman (Sutherland) rebuilding the nation and adjusting to presidential life with his family, the third season follows him as he faces the political realities of campaigning and struggles with the question of what it takes to be a leader.

In a preview on Twitter, Sutherland encouraged everyone to watch the new season, even if they weren’t caught up yet: “If you haven’t had the opportunity to watch season 1 or 2, and want to start with season 3, don’t panic. Just jump on in. The water’s fine.” —Daniel Menegaz

73rd Tony Awards

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. ET on CBS

The 2019 Tony Awards are the battle of the blockbusters vs. the underdogs. Cinematic-inspired musicals like Tootsie and Beetlejuice and jukebox-infused projects like Ain’t Too Proud and The Cher Show will duke it out against scrappy underdogs like awards darling Hadestown and feel-good fest The PromBroadway’s biggest night has no shortage of Hollywood stars with names like Bryan Cranston, Adam Driver, Elaine May, and Annette Bening competing for major hardware. But this theatrical season has been marked by quietly unique projects making their mark – with everything from Heidi Schreck’s What the Constitution Means to Me to the subtly provocative Oklahoma revival to the Orpheus-inspired Hadestown making the biggest waves. Not to mention, Hadestown is tied with Ain’t Too Proud for most nominations of the night. So, it’s likely the road to hell will be paved with Tony gold. See our predictions here. —Maureen Lee Lenker

Big Little Lies

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9 p.m. on HBO

After season 1’s traumatic climax — culminating in the murder of Celeste’s (Nicole Kidman) abusive husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgård) — the Monterey Five are back, each dealing with the fallout in her own way. Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz) teems with guilt, Jane (Shailene Woodley) is just trying to move on, and Perry’s mom Mary Louise (Meryl Streep) comes to town, probing Celeste for the truth about her son’s death. Meanwhile, Madeline (Reese Witherspoon) and Renata (Laura Dern) are back to their usual routines, which both include harassing their kid’s school headmaster. And thus another wild ride of a season begins for HBO’s prestige-soapy melodrama. —Tyler Aquilina
