Channel Surfing: Awesome TV picks for the week of 07/12/2021

A pair of new horror series and a teen comedy.

It’s getting a little spooky in July with our Channel Surfing TV picks this week. We present to you a pair of new horror shows and a teen comedy to provide some levity. Devi still can’t decide between Paxton and Ben in the next season of Never Have I Ever. Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series receives a spin-off with American Horror Stories. Then find out what goes into selling haunted houses in SurrealEstate.

Why Not Both?

Mindy Kaling drew partially from personal experience in her Netflix show, Never Have I Ever. The coming-of-age story resonated with critics receiving positive reviews. It was praised for its comedy, honesty, and Indian representation breaking Asian stereotypes.

The series returns this week and finds Devi still juggling the cultural and academic expectations of her mother with maintaining a typical high school social life. In the new season, she will navigate new romantic relationships and from the trailer, she will have to deal with a new rival who is prettier and cooler.

Stream the second season of Never Have I Ever beginning Thursday, July 15, on Netflix.

A Twisted Spin-Off

The award-winning American Horror Story has been on the air for nine seasons and will premiere its tenth season later this summer. However, if you’re looking for more AHS content and can’t wait until August, the new spin-off can tide you over.

American Horror Stories is going back to season one and will occur in the Murder House setting. It will be a weekly anthology series with a brand-new self-contained story each episode. You’ll see several familiar faces that have appeared in the main show along with newcomers. Danny Trejo playing Santa Claus? Yes, please!  

American Horror Stories premieres Thursday, July 15 on FX on Hulu.

Selling the Homes No One Else Can

Most people became a fan of Tim Rozon while watching him play Doc Holliday on Wynonna Earp. Now the actor returns to Syfy, with a lot less facial hair, in the new paranormal drama series, SurrealEstate.

He plays Luke Roman, the head of a real estate agency that specializes in selling haunted houses. Roman and his team of elite specialists get to the bottom of what’s causing the supernatural activity in order to devise a plan for the restless to receive closure and they can get that closing. It’s a different take on your typical ghostbusting.

The series premiere of SurrealEstate is Friday, July 16, on Syfy.
