We've got your TV guide sorted for the month

From new comedies and reality shows to gripping thrillers and the return of old favourites, this is everything you'll want to watch in July.

Not Going Out

BBC iPlayer
New Season

Easily one of our favourite comedies Not Going Out returned to the BBC last month, and we’ve already binge-watched all seven episodes. Now in its 13th series, Lee is once again causing mayhem (this time in a hospital, on a train and on a football pitch), and Lucy’s trying her best to stay sane.


3rd–16th July, BBC
Live Sport

Wimbledon will be available to watch on BBC One, BBC Two and on iPlayer throughout July. The main draw begins on Monday 3rd July, with the tournament running for two weeks and the women’s singles final taking place on Saturday 15th July then the men’s singles final on Sunday 16th July.

Long Lost Family

3rd July, 9pm, ITV
Season 13

Davina McCall and Nicky Campbell are back helping more people trying to find missing family. This first episode begins with Paul Connolly who was left out with the rubbish as a baby in east London and raised in care, while Shaun had a happy adoption with wonderful parents but was always curious about his birth parents.

Cooking with the Stars

4th July, 9pm, ITV
Season Three

Emma Willis and Tom Allen return to host this celebrity cookery series. The eight celebrities taking part in this series are award-winning actor Jason Watkins, boxing legend Chris Eubank, Gavin & Stacey star Joanna Page, Coronation Street’s Samia Longchambon, singer Peter Andre, Emma’s husband Matt Willis (of Busted fame), Steps’ Claire Richards and Love Island star Indiyah Polack. 


4th July, 9pm, Channel 5
New Series

A year after witnessing a traumatising attack, Hannah views a copycat attack on her CCTV system. The attacker is seen with a woman, but emerges alone, and Hannah believes the woman was murdered. We think this thriller starring Ross Kemp will have us hooked. 

Joanna Lumley's Spice Trail Adventure

5th July, 9pm, ITV
New Series

In this new series, Joanna embarks on one her most epic voyages yet – along the world’s greatest spice trails, beginning with Indonesia, and she uncovers the dark history of The Banda Islands’ past.

The Clearing

5th July, Disney+

When a girl goes missing, it triggers a woman’s trauma from her childhood (when she was a member of a female-led cult). This psychological thriller blurs the lines between past and present and it’s time to start binge-watching if you haven’t already, because the final episode airs on 5th July.

Then You Run

7th July, Sky Max and NOW
New Mini-Series

Adapted from Zoran Drvenkar’s acclaimed novel You, in this new eight-part series a close-knit group of friends end up on a summer holiday from hell after the estranged father of one of them is discovered dead.


9th July, 9pm, ITV
Season Eight

It’s back! There’ll be six new episodes in the new season of the long-running mystery series Grantchester, starring Robson Green. In this first episode a biker is found dead after a charity motorbike race, but Will and Geordie struggle to work out who would want to hurt him.

The Traitors: Australia

9th July, BBC Three and BBC iPlayer

After being hooked on the UK, then the US, version of this reality TV series, we couldn’t be more excited now the BBC are finally airing The Traitors: Australia. In this psychological TV phenomenon, if the Faithful contestants eliminate all the Traitors, they will share the prize fund, but if a Traitor makes it to the end, they steal the money. 

The Afterparty

12th July, Apple TV+
Season Two

Nothing is as it seems in this murder mystery/comedy where each suspect’s story is told through a different film genre. Season two comes to Apple TV+ this month with a different party, so it’s time to binge-watch the first season if you haven’t already. 

How I Met Your Father

26th July, Disney+
Season Two(B)

Much like in its predecessor (How I Met Your Mother), Sophie tells her son the story of how she met his father. The second season of this American sitcom starring Hilary Duff has been split into two halves and new episodes come to Disney+ this month.

The Witcher

Volume Two

Based on Andrzej Sapkowski's fantasy books, season two of this series saw Geralt embrace his destiny as he protected Ciri from the forces battling for control of the Continent. Season three arrived on Netflix on 29th June and will continue on 27th July.

Good Omens
