What to Watch This Weekend

From 19th-Century Royalty to Hollywood Royalty, this weekend is jam-packed with exciting new content. Here's what's poppin'!

BRIDGERTON: Season 2

Watch on Netflix

Dust off your teacups and top hats! The Netflix smash hit is back for Season 2! Yes, dear reader, the rumors are true that Season 1 star Regé-Jean Page is not featured this season. But don’t you worry- Shonda has still provided us with PLENTY of eye candy! This season sees the focus shift to the romance between Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley.)  And while things are slightly less steamy this time around, fans of the show are still in for a ball of a time. We cannot wait to hear what current day pop hits get the 19th-century treatment!

THE LOST CITY

Watch in Theaters

Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum star in this action-packed romantic comedy. It’s the story of an erotic romance novelist who gets kidnapped by an eccentric billionaire and ends up on an adventure (alongside her hunky cover model) that feels straight out of the pages of one of her books. It’s a star-driven blockbuster, without superheroes, the likes of which you don’t see nowadays! We mean… there’s even an extended cameo from Brad Pitt!

THE OSCARS

Watch Sunday Night at 8pm ET

It’s Hollywood’s biggest night! Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes are all co-hosting this year’s ceremony which will be broadcast live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. For the first time ever, eight of the awards will presented before the live broadcast begins in hopes that this will actually keep the ceremony itself to three hours long. There will also be special “Fan Favorite” and “Cheer Moment” awards presented to movies voted on by people on Twitter. Whether you’ve seen all of this year’s nominated films or not, the Academy Awards are always the epitome of Hollywood glamour. After two hard years for the movie industry, we think everyone deserves a night to come together and celebrate the magic of the silver screen.

Further Viewing

PACHINKO (Watch on Apple TV+)

This sweeping epic of a miniseries follows the hopes and dreams of four generations of a Korean immigrant family. The show is based on Min Jin Lee’s best-selling novel and spans across different cities, generations, and languages. It proves to be both intimate in its portrayal of a family story while also being expansive in its coverage of history, culture, and politics. Needless to say, we weren’t kidding about this show being epic. If this all sounds overwhelming, trust us, just sit down and go along for the journey. If early buzz for the show can be trusted, you’ll be more than happy that you did.

AMERICAN SONG CONTEST (Watch on NBC/Peacock)

The most shocking thing about this show is that this is the first time it is being done! Based on thee ever-popular Eurovision Song Contest, this eight-week live event will see artists from all 50 states, U.S. territories and the nation’s capital perform original songs as they compete for the nation’s votes. Some artists are better known than others… looking at you Michael Bolton from Connecticut. With Kelly Clarkson and Snoop Dogg serving as the show’s co-hosts, this show sounds like a beautifully random watch that might just produce the nation’s next hit song.

HALO (Watch on Paramount+)

After years of development, the massively popular video game gets the TV series treatment. Viewers can likely expect aliens, tons of things blowing up, and some major CGI battles. It’s either for you or its not. But fans of the games will definitely want to check this one out.

ATLANTA: Season 3 (Watch on FX/Hulu)

For the first time since 2018, Atlanta is back with new episodes and this time they are leaving Atlanta! This season finds Earn, Alfred, Darius and Van in the middle of a European tour. How will they adjust to their new foreign setting? Our bet is that there will be plenty of laughs.

STARSTRUCK: Season 2 (Watch on HBO Max)

In Season 1 of “Starstruck,” a struggling millennial living in East London ends up meeting and falling in love with a famous film star. (Yes, the Notting Hill vibes are strong.) If you haven’t watched the first season yet, it’s well worth catching up on. We can’t wait to see what the next season throws at these two lovers.

LIZZO’S WATCH OUT FOR THE BIG GRRRLS (Watch on Prime Video)

In this reality competition, global superstar, Lizzo, is searching for a plus-sized women to join her on tour as back up dancers. Yes, you’re getting to get some fierce twerking! But also expect some heartwarming stories about these talented women overcoming adversity and embracing body positivity in an industry that places far too much value on being thin. We don’t know if we’re gonna be able to sit still on the couch for this one!
