“The Acolyte”, “Fantasmas”, and a country-dance track from Orville Peck and Kylie Minogue lead this week's Must List

See EW's top pop culture picks for the week of June 7.

Emmys season is over, long live Emmys season! Even though we just had a strike-delayed ceremony in January, things are already kicking into gear for the next one in September — with nomination voting officially opening next week. If you want a good idea of who might score a nom on July 17, our TV critic Kristen Baldwin has put together her predictions for all the big categories. And if that’s not enough, check out our latest issue with The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert on the cover for more on all the contenders (including Survivor host Jeff Probst, who hasn’t been nominated in 24 seasons… just sayin’).  —Patrick Gomez, Editor-in-Chief

The latest (and I’m just going to say it — greatest!) Star Wars streaming series (out now on Disney+) features the most epic franchise fight scenes since Darth Maul crossed lightsabers with Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. The High Republic-set story revolves around a central mystery: Why is one twin killing off Jedi, and can the other one stop her? Amandla Stenberg shines, pulling double duty as Mae and Osha, and if all that is not enough to convince you, we have two simple words: Wookie Jedi. —Dalton Ross, Editorial Director

I’ll never forgive HBO for canceling Los Espookys, but giving us Fantasmas (out now) may help. The surrealist, guest-star packed spectacle (um, Aidy Bryant selling “toilet dresses”!) follows creator Julio Torres as he finds the fantastic in the mundane, scouring NYC for a lost earring and working to avoid the burdens of conformity. —Kristen Baldwin, TV Critic
