It’s a quiet time for those looking for TV crime dramas now, as late June tends to be a bit light on new programming. However, there are still a few shows to check out on TV and streaming, from true crime selections to some premieres of promising new shows.

Here’s a look at five crime TV dramas for the week of June 26-July 2 that crime fans can enjoy!

5 TV crime dramas to watch this week

Catching Killers Season 3

The third season of the Netflix docuseries continues to show real-life investigators taking on deadly killers, often serial ones. The past seasons have showcased some famous figures like the BTK Killer and others, and Season 3 continues that trend.

From the hunt for a cop killer to one who plays games with the media, the series showcases the work going into finding and stopping these monsters. With a full binge to enjoy on Netflix, this is going to be a true crime series to heat up the summer months.

Catching Killers Season 3 is now streaming on Netflix.

Cannes Confidential

This new Acorn TV series looks to be a throwback to shows like Remington Steele. Lucie Lucas is a police detective in Cannes fighting the shadow of her policeman father, who’s in jail. She runs into a con man (Jamie Bamber), and before long, the pair have formed an unlikely partnership to take down other crooks in Cannes.

Cannes Confidential looks to have a good romantic banter between the two, while Lucas also tries to prove her father’s innocence. With its great setting and good actors, this should be a lovely light-hearted crime series to binge on.

Cannes Confidential premieres on Monday, June 26 on Acorn TV.

Happy Valley

It’s the ending of one of Britain’s most loved TV crime dramas. After a tough season where Catherine (Sarah Lancashire) has faced her old enemy Royce, a rebellious teenage son, and an old murder case coming to light, she now has to see her retirement coming.

The grand finale brings the final showdown between Catherine and Royce and the question if either of them gets out alive. It should also wrap up a great series well and a reminder Happy Valley may not have lived up to its name, but still one of the best crime shows the UK has produced.

The Happy Valley series finale airing on BBC America Monday, June 26 at 10/9c.

Warrior Season 3

Moving to the newly christened Max from Cinemax, Season 3 of the historical drama is upping the ante. Following the brutal race riots in the Season 2 finale, the local authorities are cracking down on the Tongs of the late 19th century.

Now a local hero, Ah Sahm (Andrew Koji), is handling a leadership role as the various Tongs start to put their differences aside to face the authorities against them. It promises the same fantastic martial arts action and terrific drama as its new home on Max should give Warrior a bigger spotlight for its action crime saga.

Warrior Season 3 premieres on Thursday, June 29 on Max.

High Desert

Just wrapping up its first season, this Apple TV+ show is a fun mystery-comedy series. Oscar winner Patricia Arquette is Peggy, a recovering addict who tries to rebuild her life by becoming a private eye. Brad Garrett plays her boss with a good supporting cast while Peggy bungles her way through a variety of low-level crimes in Yucca Valley, California.

The mysteries are fun while Arquette nicely sells this woman, trying to make up for her mistakes and charming even as she starts to find a deeper mystery she may be in over her head for.

High Desert Season 1 is now streaming on Apple TV+.

Is School Spirits canceled or renewed for Season 2?. dark. Next
