Best TV of June 2018: previews five of the best shows... previews five of the most exciting TV dramas that will be coming to your screens in June...


The Affair

(Sky Atlantic)


The fourth season of the hit domestic drama rolls onto screens in June.

Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, Joshua Jackson and Maura Tierney all return to star, with this season finding each of the show's key characters in a new relationship. But, are they now prepared to leave the past behind and move on? Or will it come back to haunt them?

You can catch up on all the previous seasons here in hmv’s online store. 



Atlanta (Robbin’ Season)



With movie stardom and a hugely successful music career, you wonder how Donald Glover finds the time to fit Atlanta, but thankfully he has.

The show, which follows Glover’s Earnie Marks and his cousin Alfred as two cousins navigating their way in the Atlanta rap scene in an effort to improve their lives and the lives of their families, offers up quite a different second season, which gets much, much darker...

Lakeith Lee Stanfield, Brian Tyrie Henry and Deadpool 2's Zazie Beetz co-star alongside Glover.




(BBC Two)


The third and final season of Versailles arrives on screens in June.

The lavish production, which follows life in the raunchy and always unpredictable court of Louis XIV, stars George Blagden, Alexander Vlahos, Stuart Bowman, Elisa Losowski and Evan Williams.

In the final run, we begin with Louis celebrating his victory over the Dutch and their allies by welcoming defeated Emperor Leopold of Hungary and his niece Eleanor to Versailles. It's a move that could have personal consequences for the French King...




(BBC One)


The hugely successful period drama returns for a fourth run in June.

Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson, Ellise Chappell, Heida Reed and Jack Farthing are back to star with Rebecca Front and Max Bennett joining the cast.

In the new series, Ross Poldark is forced to defend Cornwall from mischievous banker  George Warleggan and risks everything he holds dear as he embarks on a political journey which takes him to the nation's capital…

King Lear

(BBC Two)


Sneaking out at the end of May comes Anthony Hopkins’ dystopian new take on Shakespeare’s classic about the ageing King who descends into madness when he abdicates to his corrupt older daughters and rejects his loving and honest younger one.

Hopkins plays Lear and leads an all-star cast with Emma Thompson, Emily Watson, Florence Pugh, Andrew Scott, Jim Broadbent and Christopher Eccleston among the other stars.

Richard Eyre directs and moves the story to a fictional present where the world is falling into ruin.
