There’s plenty going up on the various streaming services for users to enjoy this weekend. In particular, those who subscribe to Netflix and Disney Plus have a whole heap of new titles to dig into over the next few days. Some of the highlights include the hotly awaited return of a hit show, a few new movies and a smash hit release from 2017.
Let’s start with Friday. Netflix is serving up probably the biggest addition of the weekend with Lucifer season 5A, the first eight episodes that make up the penultimate run of the DC supernatural/crime drama starring Tom Ellis as the Devil. The trailer teased that Ellis will get to double up this year as Lucifer’s twin brother Michael comes to Los Angeles to stir up trouble and so far, at least, reactions to the new run are pretty strong.
Over on D+, meanwhile, the big draw of this week’s haul is Beauty and the Beast, the live-action remake of the 1991 animated classic starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as the fairy tale couple. Both versions of the story are now on the same site, so you can watch them back-to-back this weekend if you’d like. Elsewhere on D+, there are new episodes of Muppets Now, One Day at Disney and Weird But True, and out-of-this-world documentary Mars: One Day on the Red Planet.
