We start a new week, and also a month. We are already in August, the considered last month of summer simply because from September – which is technically still summer – the world begins to turn again.
And since it is the beginning of the month, the change brings with it a huge number of premieres this week. In fact, only Netflix has 17 new releases to watch these days. A portfolio that encompasses all of the following: Successful production returns Valeria with her second season, based on the novels of the homonymous saga of Elisabet Benavent: In this new season, Valeria will have to face a decision that could mark her future as a writer: continue using a pseudonym, or continue in a world of junk contracts.
August is also the month of the return of Stargirl, the latest DC heroine to join the universe returns with new adventures on August 11.
Continuing with the UCM, at Disney + we have What would happen if…?, animated series that twists the Marvel film universe exploring alternative timelines in which for example we see Peggy Carter from Captain America turned into Captain Carter, with her own suit and shield
