Apple TV Plus's feel-good heart-warmer is back with Ted Lasso season 2. Jason Sudeikis returns as the titular football coach, with new additions to the cast including Sarah Niles' sports psychologist Sharon Fieldstone, who brings a new dynamic to the series. After AFC Richmond were relegated from the Premier League in the season 1 finale, Coach Lasso certainly seems to have his work cut out for him – and season 2 begins with the team still struggling to win games. The first episode hits the streamer today, with the rest of season 2 following weekly.

Marvel Studios' Assembled: The Making of Loki – Disney Plus

Loki may have wrapped on Disney Plus, but that doesn't mean we have to say goodbye to Tom Hiddleston's trickster just yet. Assembled: The Making of Loki is streaming now, and pulls back the curtain on the MCU's third outing on Disney Plus. Hear from the cast and crew about how the God of Mischief's time-travelling, multiverse-exploding adventure was put together – and when you're done, you can check out how WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier were made, too, in the other two episodes of the series.

Masters of the Universe: Revelation – Netflix

It's time to head back to Castle Grayskull. This isn't just any old Masters of the Universe story, though. This is billed as the final battle between good and evil, directly following on from the classic 1980s series no less. The talent behind it is enough for newcomers and veterans alike to be excited: Kevin Smith's wonderfully geeky guiding hand is backed by the voice talents of the likes of Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Couple that with a gloriously bright, kinetic animation style and you've got all the makings of a modern-day classic that capably reinvents He-Man for a new generation.

M.O.D.O.K. – Disney Plus

You've marveled over WandaVision and lost your mind over Loki but, quietly, MODOK has also cemented itself as another member of Marvel's Mount Rushmore of bizarrely brilliant series.

The finale, out on Disney Plus Star in the UK, marks the perfect opportunity to jump on the bandwagon of a show that fuses Robot Chicken, a little bit of Rick and Morty, and Patton Oswalt's always-impeccable comic timing as down-on-his-luck supervillain MODOK to great effect. Watch it all this weekend. Go on, you know you want to.

Sky Rojo, the action-packed series from the creator of Money Heist, follows three sex workers (Verónica Sanchez, Lali Espósito, and Yany Prado) on the run from their pimp, Romeo, (Asier Etxeandia) and his henchmen (Miguel Ángel Silvestre and Enric Aucquer). In season 2, the three women are armed and they have a plan – and a grudge. After showdowns and near-death experiences aplenty in season 1, it looks like things aren't slowing down any time soon in season 2.
