Untold

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Docuseries Debut
What do boxer Christy Martin, Caitlyn Jenner, and the Indiana Pacers all have in common? Their stories are part of this five-part docuseries, releasing weekly, from the creators of Wild Wild Country. Each episode delves deep into what happened beyond the headlines, told by those who lived it. In the case of Jenner, it's her journey to Olympic gold; for Martin, it's her fight for her life outside the ring; and in the case of the Pacers, it's the infamous "Malice at the Palace" brawl that broke out during their 2004 game against the Detroit Pistons. Another episode features a misfit band of hockey players taking orders from the teenage son of an alleged mob boss—which is not the focus of the next season of The Mighty Ducks show. —Gerrad Hall

DC's Stargirl

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on The CW

Season Premiere
If season 1 of DC's Stargirl was a dream come true for Courtney (Brec Bassinger) as she became Stargirl, then season 2 is going to be her nightmare. Now that she's a full-fledged superhero with her first big win under her belt, she's about to face her greatest challenge yet in villain Eclipso (Nick Tarabay) — and he's downright terrifying. "Every time [creator] Geoff [Johns] makes a season, he first comes up with what the tone of the season is going to be, and this one he said is like Nightmare on Elm Street and It," Bassinger tells EW. "I was like, 'Whoa, that is going to be different!' It was fun getting to do it." —Sydney Bucksbaum
