Black & Streaming: From Zoe Saldana In ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’ to ‘Run The World,’ Here are 11 Movies and TV Shows Hitting Streaming Services This Weekend

Welcome to your second “What to Watch” list for the month of June, featuring a curated list of television shows and movie releases.

After its theatrical release in the U.S. and in Japan, Michael B. Jordan‘s directorial debut, “Creed III,” is available on Amazon Prime. Another fairly new movie, “Avatar: The Way of Water, starring Zoe Saldana, was also released on Disney+. Both films were released earlier this year.

On the series tip, check out an all-new episode of “College Hill: Celebrity Edition.” For weeks, the BET+ series has teased fans with clips of a fight between Joseline Hernandez and Amber Rose.

Their fight stemmed from a conversation about unapologetically recognizing your blackness, which Hernandez doesn’t believe Rose does as a biracial woman. Things got intense pretty fast among a classroom of celebrities and college students.

There’s also a new episode of “Run The World,” the series that combines the essence of other female-led shows like “Living Single,” “Girlfriends” and a Black girl magic version of “Sex and the City.”

Meanwhile, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum Porsha Williams is back on reality television for now in the space challenge series “Stars on Mars.”

Viewers also can look forward to full seasons of the “Big Mouth” spinoff “Human Resources” with actress Niecy Nash and “Searching For Soul Food,” the latter of which follows celebrity chef Alisa Reynolds as she travels the world trying different foods from different cultures.

Here is a list of 11 movies and television series to enjoy right at home this weekend.
