If there is one thing we love, it’s a good Netflix series that we can binge on a lazy Sunday, and here to satisfy our needs is our favourite royal drama The Crown. Returning for its fourth series, the blue bloods are back and this time we’re thrown into Margaret Thatcher times, with Diana and Charles’ wedding at the forefront. Introducing the people’s princess Lady Diana Spencer, the series will follow her wedding to Prince Charles, as well as the introduction of William and Harry. With Olivia Colman, Helena Bonham Carter and Tobias Menzies all returning to the addictive show, heat up the popcorn because this season is set to be juicy.
We’re travelling into a parallel universe for the Netflix adaptation of Alice in Borderland and the trailer for season 4 of The Crown is finally here.
Small town? Expect big drama from Robyn Carr’s new series Virgin River. Based on the novel of the same, the series follows Melinda Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge) who moves to the remote town of Virgin River thinking it will be the perfect place for a fresh start – or is it? Of course, nothing is all as it seems, and with season two dropping November 27th, be prepared to be thrown into a whirlwind of secrets, conspiracy and revelations.
Alice in Borderland
Now, we all know how shockingly tragic a lot of anime live-actions can be (just watch Bleach if you don’t believe us) but this adaptation of Weekly Shonen Sunday’s Alice in Borderland is looking binge-worthy. Following a trio high school delinquents who are bored with their lives, the group are transported to a post-apocalyptic-like parallel world upon a failed wish. Greeted by a woman who tells them they have already entered “their game”, the trio must complete a series of insane and wild challenges in order to survive in the crazy world and get back home.
If there is one thing we know for sure, it’s that Netflix never miss with their true-crime docuseries, and new series Trial 4 is looking like a must-watch. The eight-part series follows Sean K. Ellis who faces trial after being wrongly convicted of murdering a police officer when he was just aged 19. Having spent 22 years in prison, Ellis tells his compelling story through a series of old interviews with a Boston Globe writer. With everything that has occurred this year, the importance of educating ourselves on police corruption and systematic racism is a must, and this show is the top of our list.
A Queen is Born
Queer is Eye meets Drag Race for Netflix’s first Brazilian reality series, A Queen Is Born. Following drag queens Gloria Groove and Alexia Twister, the series sees the duo unlist a team of experts to help aspiring drag queens become their best and most glamours selves. With eyelashes, glitter and hair spray galore, this series is looking like heart warmer to keep us warm in the winter months.
Margot Robbie and Finn Cole? We’re already in love. Having had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, the highly-anticipated film is finally making its way to VOD. Following outlaw Allison Wells (Margot Robbie) who is on the run from the authorities after a bank robbery, the film takes us to local Texan Even Evans (Finn Cole) who hopes to capture the criminal and secure the $10,000 bounty to save his bankrupt farm. But when the two cross paths, the outcome is not what we expect.
