Queer Eye: We’re in Japan!

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Season Premiere
After giving make-betters in Georgia, Kansas City, and Australia, the Fab Five are putting their talents to work in Japan for this four-episode special season. With the help of model and actress Kiko Mizuhara as their guide, and comedian Naomi Watanabe as their special guest, Antoni, Bobby, Jonathan, Karamo, and Tan will experience Japanese culture, cuisine, fashion, and more as they transform a hospice nurse who gave up on “being a woman,” a manga artist who’s been bullied since childhood, a shy radio director who’s trying to reconnect with his life and wife, and a struggling gay man who wants to introduce his boyfriend to his family. —Gerrad Hall

The Morning Show

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Apple TV+

Series Debut
What goes into making a morning news show? And what happens when a cohost is fired for allegations of sexual misconduct? Those are only two of the things The Morning Show explores as Alex Levy (Jennifer Aniston) has to figure out what comes next after her cohost of 15 years, Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell), is fired. And in the aftermath of that drama, Aniston meets Bradley Jackson (Reese Witherspoon), a local West Virginia correspondent who finds herself thrown into the mix. “I really wanted it to be a story about two smart, complicated, slightly f—ked up women,” showrunner Kerry Ehrin says. “It’s them versus their inner bulls—t that is holding them back.” —Samantha Highfill

The Affair

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

Series Finale
After five seasons spanning two coasts, multiple affairs, countless terrible (and sleazy) decisions by Noah (Dominic West), and the death of one of its lead characters (Ruth Wilson’s Alison), will the Showtime series end on a happy — however improbable — note? At the very least it might end where it all began, with Noah and Helen (Maura Tierney) back together. After their near-death hike and abseil in last week’s episode, the estranged spouses seemed to finally be being fair and honest with one another for the first time. Does that make for a happy ending? Guess it depends if we see the last scene from Noah or Helen’s perspective. If it’s Whitney’s, we’re all doomed. —Ruth Kinane
