10 Shows and Movies to Watch This Weekend

With endless streaming services, blockbuster movies hitting theaters each week and a constant flow of new shows that we’re told we must watch, it can feel overwhelming trying to keep up. Sure, we keep our eyes on lists like Netflix’s most-watched titles, but the big hits aren’t necessarily always worth watching. So, how do you parse through it all? Well, we’ve made your job a little easier by finding all the shows and movies that are worth your time each week. Say goodbye to the scroll fatigue of the past.

From new movies like Tetris to highly-anticipated sequels like Murder Mystery 2, here’s what to watch this weekend.

1. The Night Agent

This FBI crime drama has been holding strong as the top show on Netflix, and it just got renewed for a second season. The series follows Agent Peter Sutherland, a nighttime telephone operator for the White House who gets pulled into a dangerous government conspiracy.

2. Murder Mystery 2

In Murder Mystery (2019), Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston portrayed Nick and Audrey Spitz, a couple trying to enjoy their first European vacation when they find themselves involved in a crime investigation. Now, the couple are working as full-time detectives on a puzzling case in this highly-anticipated sequel.

3. Tetris

Unless you've been living under a colored block, everyone knows about the video game phenomenon Tetris. However, in this biographical drama, we learn about the puzzle game's complicated origin story, and how one man fought to bring the pastime into players' hands around the world.

4. Yellowjackets

One of 2021's buzziest shows is finally back. In Yellowjackets, a high school soccer team get stranded in the wilderness, and the situation turns into Lord of the Flies. The show also features flash-forwards of the survivors as adults as they deal with the aftermath of their horrible isolation.

5. Up Here

Starring Mae Whitman (Good Girls) and Carlos Valdes (The Flash), this new musical series takes place in ’90s NYC, following a couple as they try to overcome their personal struggles to make their relationship work.

6. Succession

The Emmy Award-winning series features the return of the Roy family—our favorite toxic, power-hungry, expletive-shouting corporate dynasty. Sadly though, it's been confirmed this will be the final season of the HBO dramedy.

7. Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves

Hearing Dungeons & Dragons may make you think of ’80s board game nights, but the popular fantasy role-playing game has been adapted into a new action comedy starring Chris Pine, Regé-Jean Page, Michelle Rodriguez, Justice Smith and Hugh Grant.

8. Ted Lasso

The feel-good comedy series has made its long-awaited return. In the new season, Ted Lasso is ready to coach his soccer (er, football) team to victory. The only snag? One of his former employees is now working for one of their biggest competitors, so they might have a tougher season ahead of them than they realize.

9. Shadow and Bone

Based on the bestselling Grishaverse books by Leigh Bardugo, Shadow and Bone is finally back for season 2. In the vein of series like Harry Potter, this fantasy show follows Alina Starkov, an orphan who discovers she is a Grisha gifted with rare magical powers that could help save the world.

10. John Wick

John Wick: Chapter 4 just hit theaters, but if you've never seen the franchise, this is the perfect place to start. The first installment follows our titular hitman, who is forced out of retirement in an act of revenge.
