Luxe Listings Sydney (AU)

In this unscripted reality series, three of Australia’s top real estate agents — Gavin Rubinstein, Simon Cohen, and D’Leanne Lewis — take viewers into the fast-paced, high-stakes, cutthroat world of the Sydney property market, which is home to some of the most expensive, extravagant, and gorgeous properties in the world. As the trio reveals all the drama, egos, and ruthless competition that go hand in hand with buying and selling high-end luxury properties in Sydney, we watch them hustle, negotiate, and deal — stopping at nothing to deliver results for their demanding clientele and success for themselves, while balancing their hectic personal lives with their demanding careers.

Luxe Listings Sydney, an Amazon Original series, premieres globally on Friday, July 9, exclusively on Prime Video.

Wellington Paranormal: Season 1 (NZ)

Created by Oscar® winner Taika Waititi and Primetime Emmy® nominee Jemaine Clement, this half-hour mockumentary comedy horror series is a spinoff of their award-winning vampire mockumentary film What We Do in the Shadows (which has its own TV spinoff).

Starring in Wellington Paranormal are Karen O’Leary and Mike Minogue, both of whom appeared in What We Do in the Shadows, as Officers O’Leary and Minogue, respectively — hard-working members of the Wellington constabulary’s paranormal unit who, under the supervision of Sergeant Maaka (Maaka Pohatu, Savage), investigate supernatural occurrences that arise in New Zealand’s capital on a surprisingly regular basis.

Wellington Paranormal: Season 1 premieres in the US on Sunday, July 11, at 9 PM ET, on The CW. Episodes will be available for streaming the day after broadcast on, The CW’s ad-supported streaming platform, as well as on HBO Max.

Jack Irish: Hell Bent (Series 3) (AU)

Inspired by the acclaimed crime novels of the late Peter Temple, the final season of this gritty crime thriller brings Emmy® Award winner Guy Pearce (Mare of Easttown, Iron Man 3, Mildred Pierce) back as Jack Irish, a former criminal lawyer, part-time debt collector, and private investigator with a penchant for getting wrapped up in things he shouldn’t.

In Jack Irish: Hell Bent, Jack Irish come face to face with an antagonist more personal and destructive than he has ever encountered. His long-suppressed trauma of witnessing the brutal and random murder of his wife, Isabel, by former client Wayne Milovich (which launched the first “Jack Irish” telefim, Jack Irish: Bad Debts, in 2012) rears its ugly head when Jack discovers there was more to those fateful events all those years ago.

Joining Guy Pearce in the four-episode final season are Marta Dusseldorp (A Place to Call Home, Janet King), Roy Billing (Rake), Aaron Pedersen (Mystery Road), Kate Atkinson (Wentworth), and Shane Jacobson (The Time of Our Lives).

Jack Irish: Hell Bent premieres in the US with its first episode on Monday, July 12, exclusively on Acorn TV and its digital channels, including Acorn TV on Amazon Channels. New episodes will debut weekly through August 2.

The End (AU-UK)

This half-hour dark dramedy series centers on three generations of a family living with separate but intersecting obsessions: trying to figure out how to die with dignity, how to live with none, and how to make it all count.

Kate Brennan (Frances O’Connor, Mr. Selfridge) is a doctor in Australia who specializes in palliative care medicine. Her opposition to euthanasia is in direct conflict with her mother, Edie Henley (Harriet Walter, Law & Order: UK), who is rather vehement about her right to die. After Edie’s suicide attempt fails, Kate brings her from England to Australia and places her in a nearby retirement village — which, for Edie, is a fate worse than death. Meanwhile, Kate struggles with her own problems and children as she attempts to create her and Edie’s mother-daughter relationship anew.

The ten-episode series costars Noni Hazlehurst (A Place to Call Home), Luke Arnold (Glitch), Ingrid Torelli (Five Bedrooms), Morgan Davies (Devil’s Playground), John Waters (Offspring), Alex Dimitriades (The Principal), Robyn Nevin (Top of the Lake), and Roy Billing (Jack Irish).

The End premieres in the US on Sunday, July 18, at 8 PM ET, on Showtime and and its digital channels, including Showtime on Amazon Channels.

The Heart Guy: Series 5 (AU)

Opening a year after the Season 4 finale, the fifth and final season of this hit medical dramedy finds everyone looking to big-city surgeon-turned-small town GP Hugh Knight (Rodger Corser, Glitch, McLeod’s Daughters) to save the day after the hospital in Whyhope is forced to close due to the discovery of asbestos. The town is in crisis, but will Hugh step up and fight for his hometown?

Joining Rodger Corser to close out the series are regular cast members Nicole da Silva (Wentworh), Ryan Johnson (House Husbands), Tina Bursill (The Moodys), Hayley McElhinney (Peter Allen: Not the Boy Next Door), Chloe Bayliss (Reef Doctors), Matt Castley (Blind), Belinda Bromilow (The Great), and Charles Wu (Secret City), and new cast member Chantelle Jamieson (Crownies).
