“Tokyo Vice” Season 1

Starts streaming: April 7th

This television adaptation of journalist Jake Adelstein’s memoir is a spiritual sequel to the influential 1980s series Miami Vice, which explores organized crime and its impact on a nation’s social order in the 1990s. Ansel Elgort plays Adelstein, who is struggling to be accepted as an American in the highly competitive Japanese newspaper business. He later gains respect when he begins investigating the yakuza. Created by Tony Award-winner JT Rogers (best known for “Oslo”), Tokyo Vice explores the complexities of class and race at a time when Japanese business was booming and some of the people making money didn’t want anyone – and especially not just any aspiring foreigner – to see too closely how and why.

“The Flight Attendant” Season 2

Starts streaming: April 21st

Though Season 1 of The Flight Attendant cleverly — and thoroughly — adapted Chris Bohjalian’s thriller of the same name, the series was so well received that it was bound to get a sequel. As season two begins, alcoholic flight attendant Cassie (played by Kaley Cuoco, also an executive producer on the series) is cleaning up her life after helping international law enforcement solve a murder in which she was once the prime suspect. In the new episodes, Cassie settles into her new part-time job as a spy and becomes involved in another dangerous mystery. Many of the series’ great supporting cast return, including Rosie Perez as Cassie’s friendly co-worker and Zosia Mamet as her best friend.

“Barry” Season 3

Starts streaming: April 24th

After a three-year hiatus, Bill Hader returns as hitman and aspiring actor Barry Berkman in the dark comedy “Barry,” the series he co-developed with Alec Berg. Season 2 took risks with her story, playing the inherent absurdity of a stoic killer who gets in touch with his emotions in an acting class. Borrowing from classic modern TV crime dramas like Breaking Bad, Hader and Berg ramped up the suspense as Barry ducked the mob, the law and a vengeful old co-worker played by Stephen Root. Season 3 will continue on that path while emulating the pretensions of wannabe Hollywood, including promising uninhibited Sally (Sarah Goldberg) and big-hearted acting coach Gene (Henry Winkler).

“This town is ours”

Starts streaming: April 25th

The latest Baltimore series from The Wire creator David Simon is a collaboration with his frequent writing partner, bestselling crime writer George Pelecanos.
