Here are the new movies and shows that are coming to Netflix, Paramount+ and more streaming services the first weekend of June.

What we're watching: Jeremy Renner returns as "mayor" of Kingstown, a puppeteer spirals in a gritty thriller, and we learn about the visionary behind characters like Kermit the Frog and Big Bird.

My pick of the week

"Mayor of Kingstown" season 3 available Sunday on Paramount+

State of play: A series of explosions puts the citizens of Kingstown in a frenzy, and the pressure to stop a drug war and keep the peace heats up for Mike McLusky, played by Oscar-nominee Jeremy Renner.

Driving the news: Renner filmed this season while recovering from a snow plow accident where the actor broke 38 bones.
