Regarding the premiere of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore and the end of Better Call Saul, we created a list of other recommended prequels, these series and movies are very recent, so some of them are still on screen and with confirmed seasons to come

Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore

The third part of the Harry Potter prequel "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" pentalogy follows the rise of Gellert Grindelwald (now played by Mads Mikkelsen) in his quest to enslave Muggles at all costs. As in Harry Potter, Dumbledore will be the mastermind who will plan how to avoid it. However, there are secrets that will not make things easy, so the help of the brothers Newt and Theseus Scamander, as well as Bunty Broadacre and even the baker Jacob Kowalski will be crucial.

Better Call Saul

The first part of the sixth and final season is now available on Netflix, Better Call Saul has become as successful a series as Breaking Bad, its origin. He has a great challenge ahead of him, to close as well as the story of Walter White did, everything is going well for him. The great questions will be answered on their different fronts: Varga's betrayal, the closure that the series will have for Kim and Lalo Salamanca, and of course for the lawyer Jimmy McGill, everything that will connect us to what we already know in Breaking Bad .

The Boys Presents: Diabolical

If you're already looking forward to The Boys season 3 you can start with Diabolical, a fun and quirky animated anthology. Everything takes place in the main universe directly or indirectly, each of the eight proposals works by itself and it is not for less, among those in charge of some chapters stand out the comedian Seth Rogen and Justin Roiland, co-creator of Rick and Morty. You will find different animation styles thanks to the diversity of studios present, as well as interesting voice casts with which there are criticisms and rereadings of the traditional perfect worlds of superheroes, the true spirit of The Boys.

The Many Saints of Newark

This film is a prequel to the paradigmatic series "The Sopranos", first it should be noted that it is necessary to have seen the original series to better understand the film. The series recreates the late 1960s and early 1970s following the Moltisanti and Soprano families. It is a work full of references to the original series, to historical events in the United States and you will also find some of the anecdotes told in the series. Finally, although you will see Tony Soprano in his child and youth version (played by Michael, son of James Gandolfini) the film is not focused only on him.

Not to miss the original cast, the prequel features Ralph Fiennes, Rhys Ifans, Gemma Arterton, Charles Dance, Harris Dickinson and Daniel Brühl, among others.
