Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Tuesday, July 28. All times are Eastern. 

Top pick

Last Chance U (Netflix, 3:01 a.m., complete fifth season): So, live sports are back (though maybe not for long), but anyone still feeling like they need some additional clear eyes and full hearts in their lives right now has somewhere else to turn. The same goes for anyone who just really likes a good docuseries.

In its final season, Last Chance U moves from Kansas to California, peering in at the junior college football system through the eyes of players at Laney College in Oakland. And while this may be the end of the road for this version of Last Chance U, a basketball-centered spinoff is in the works at Netflix.


Can you binge it? Yep, all five seasons, right there on Netflix.

Regular coverage

Wild card

Maxxx (Hulu, 3:01 a.m., complete first season, U.S. premiere): Created by and starring The Handmaid’s Tale’s O-T Fagbenle, this series centers on a onetime boyband star desperate to stage a comeback. Fagbenle’s fellow Handmaid’s cast member Christopher Meloni also stars, and so does his earring.
