Between traditional television, video-on-demand releases, and a growing number of streaming services, it can be hard to keep up with what one should watch week to week. Fortune is here to help you keep track of new releases as well as the occasional older title worth checking out. Take a look at this weekend’s notable arrivals, a couple you may have missed earlier in the week, and what else is coming soon:

Netflix

Da 5 Bloods: The latest Spike Lee joint officially drops on Netflix June 12. The film centers on four African-American veterans who go back to Vietnam to look for the remains of their fallen leader (Chadwick Boseman), as well as some buried treasure. The cast also includes Delroy Lindo, Jonathan Majors, Clarke Peters, Norm Lewis, and Isiah Whitlock Jr.

Pokémon Journeys: The Series: If you’re seeking something family friendly or simply need a new dose of Pikachu and friends in your life, the first 12 episodes of the animated series’ 23rd season will arrive on Netflix June 12. More episodes will drop in later months.

How to Get Away With Murder (Season 6): The final season of the ABC series will be available for streaming June 13.

Marcella: The third season of the British crime series, starring Anna Friel, comes to Netflix June 14.

Earlier this week, Lenox Hill—a new reality series about doctors at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan—arrived on the streamer. If there’s a Grey’s Anatomy–shaped hole in your life, this might be for you.

Disney+

Artemis Fowl: Originally intended for theaters, the Kenneth Branagh–directed adaptation of the young adult fantasy series will arrive on Disney+ June 12. The reviews… have not been particularly kind.

Hulu

Crossing Swords: The new stop-motion series from the executive producers of Robot Chicken features Patrick (Nicholas Hoult) as a peasant who gets to be a squire at the royal castle. He winds up encountering “a corrupt hornet’s nest of horny monarchs, crooks, and charlatans” (If you haven’t picked up on it: This is not for kids.) All 10 episodes of the season arrive on Hulu June 12.

Amazon Prime Video

Knives Out: If you missed it in theaters last year, or just feel like watching this star-studded murder mystery once again, it will be available to stream on Amazon Prime June 12. Read Fortune’s November 2019 interview with director Rian Johnson and his cousin, composer Nathan Johnson, here.
