Brown (This Is Us) that encourages young readers to develop a love of reading and an appreciation for the written word.

This ensemble-driven heist series, led by Giancarlo Esposito, follows a bunch of crooks as they plot and carry out the theft of a multibillion-dollar subterranean vault. The first seven episodes, which take place before and after the robbery, are presented in a non-linear fashion by Netflix, despite the apparent simplicity of the idea. The order in which you learn about the people and their histories creates a compelling story arc, with the theft itself acting as the show’s definitive series finale. When do you plan on seeing the first episode?

The eleventh season of the popular Canadian comedy brings new adventures to the show’s fictional Ontario town and its colorful ensemble of people. Letterkenny, created and written mainly by series star and creator Jared Keeso, is a popular international sensation that defies categorization with its rapid-fire banter and loosely interwoven sketches, vignettes, and storylines. Letterkenny is a filthy, brilliant comedy gem that will appeal to fans of the hicks, skids, hockey players, and even those obnoxious de-gens. (Allegedly.)

Doom Patrol (2019)
The most improbable historical heroes are back for another season of outlandish exploits. Following along, you should be aware of the setup: The show centers on a motley crew of antiheroes who have developed formidable skills as a consequence of unfortunate events that have left them emotionally and physically traumatized but who would rather spend their time fighting amongst themselves than risking their lives to save the world. Trouble seems to follow them about like a bad omen, though, and it’s generally the strangest type. You may tune in for the rapid-fire F-bombs and witty banter, but you’ll stick around for the frightening “butt-monsters” and other, even crazier threats to reality.
His Dark Materials (2019)
The third and final season of HBO’s impressive adaptation of Philip Pullman’s celebrated trilogy of fantasy novels concludes the story of a young girl’s adventure through multiple worlds, some like ours and very different from each other, as she searches for her missing friend and her enigmatic father.
