What to Watch This Weekend

From jump scares to spoiled heirs- we've got the scoop on all of this weekend's hottest new content!

Phoebe Robinson: Sorry, Harriet Tubman

Watch on HBO Max

“2 Dope Queens” comedian, Phoebe Robinson is bringing her debut solo stand-up special to HBO Max. In this hour-long laugh-fest, Robinson is addressing topics such as interracial dating, therapy, reparations, and what it’s like hanging out with Michelle Obama. Just this past year alone, Robinson has released a Comedy Central series, started a book imprint, wrote a third book, sold a half-hour sitcom, and guest-hosted for Jimmy Kimmel. Clearly, her star just continues to launch, and after watching this special, it’s not hard to see why!

Halloween Kills

Watch in Theaters and on Peacock

Apologies to the Strode family, but Michael Myers is back! In this sequel to the reboot of the reboot of John Carpenter’s iconic franchise, Laurie Strode (played by Jamie Lee Curtis) finds herself and her family once again tormented by the infamous masked monster and has to rally her entire town behind her to finally take down this gruesome killer once and for all! For all of you Real Housewives fans out there- the movie also features Beverly Hills star, Kyle Richards, who is returning to her role of Lindsey Wallace from the original 1978 slasher film. Who will survive? Well, there’s only one way to find out.

Succession: Season 3

Watch on HBO

The Roys are back in town! (Well, to be more accurate- they’re actually headed out of town for a bit to escape to a 17th-century Tuscan villa in Italy.) No matter where in the world this family is, however, you can still expect the same level of hilarity, bite, and just plain awfulness of these rich antiheroes. Critics have weighed in on some of the new episodes and have stated that the show is back and better than ever. We guess what we’re really saying is- prepare to have the opening theme music stuck in your head for the next ten weeks.
