Apple TV Plus has seen some huge success lately with big hits like Ted Lasso, Trying – which is one of three series on the service with over 80% on Rotten Tomatoes – and Severance, and it's continuing to deliver some great original content with six new movies and shows being added in July 2024.

If you're looking for some brand new stories to add to your watchlist, I've selected four shows that have immediately grabbed my attention based on what I've seen from the trailers, cast, and plots, most of which have a great deal of mystery attached to them.

All of these titles are releasing in July, so you won't have long to wait before you can settle in and watch some of these intriguing new originals.
