What’s New to Watch This Week in Houston
- A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood | Available Tuesday, June 2 | Hulu – Based on the life of beloved children’s television star Mr. Rogers, journalist Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys) is given the task of covering the wholesome TV host for an upcoming article, but is skeptical of Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks) himself. In disbelief of Mr. Rogers perpetual good intentions, the journalist comes to the realization that Rogers kindness is indeed genuine, while having to confront, head-on, his own personal demons.
- Fuller House: The Farewell Season Premiere | Available Tuesday, June 2 | Netflix – The sequel series to ABC’s ’80s and ’90s-era hit, Full House, comes to an end with the last nine episodes of its final season (the first nine were released in December 2019). Guaranteed to feature appearances from the original cast (except for Lori Loughlin’s “Aunt Becky” after the actress was let go following her involvement in the college admission scandals), expect over-the-top comedy bits, lots of heart, and winky asides to the viewer. With the combo of the original and expanded new cast, the final episodes are sure to pack it all before putting the final touches on the series.

- Be Our Chef: Season Finale | Available Friday, June 5 | Disney+ – Inspired by the Disney universe, this competitive cooking series, brings together five families that cook to construct dishes based on by the wonderful world of Disney.
