With the long weekend upon us, there’s a good chance you’ll be looking for some new shows or movies to watch, especially if you’ll be sheltering-in-place. Thankfully, there’s a lot of fresh content coming to all your favorite streaming platforms, so we thought we’d provide a bit of a rundown on what you can watch this Memorial Day weekend.
Over on Netflix, the biggest addition comes in the form of The Lovebirds, a new comedy starring Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae as a couple who have been wrongfully accused of committing a murder. While it released to somewhat mixed reception, it’s certainly scoring much higher than The Wrong Missy, while also proving to be equally as popular with Netflix subscribers.
For those who like raunchier content, the second season of Trailer Park Boys: The Animated Series debuted, while reality TV fans will want to check out Selling Sunset, which received a new batch of episodes. Other additions include History 101, Just Go With It, and Control Z, a Netflix Original about a hacker who begins releasing students’ sensitive secrets.
Over on Disney Plus, the House of Mouse has added a few classic films (including Hello, Dolly! and Fantastic Mr. Fox) as well as a couple of brand new seasons of a handful of shows, including Marvel’s Future Adventures. Hulu and Amazon Prime Video subscribers, meanwhile, will be able to catch last year’s Rocketman, and HBO customers can check out Ready or Not.
