One of Netflix’s most anticipated series slated for a 2022 release will definitely be this high-octane drama. The show doesn’t have a title yet but it will be the first dramatized TV production about the life of legendary Formula One driver Ayrton Senna, who is pictured here.

Too Hot To Handle — Season Two
Reality TV fans were overjoyed to hear that Netflix was bringing back its steamy show, Too Hot to Handle, for another batch of episodes. The second season will drop in June, but no artwork has been released yet, so this image is of the cast from the initial run. The first season saw a group of attractive young people dropped onto an island together, with the twist that they couldn’t have any sex for four weeks or else they’d forfeit the $100,000 prize at stake. Since the twist was a surprise to the contestants the first time around, it’s unclear if the same one will be used this time or if the show will switch up its formula.
