From Oscar-nominated pictures to guilty-pleasure reality drama, we have collated a list of the pictures we will be streaming this weekend.
It’s finally Friday, and for every person getting ready to bask in the sun in the middle of their nearest beer garden, there is also a person who peaked a little too early in the week— and are in dire need of some respite. Speaking for those unlucky few, we come armed with some of the most highly anticipated and bingeable shows available to stream right now, from Oscar-nominated pictures to guilty-pleasure reality drama.
So to see the shows we will be streaming from our gardens this weekend, scroll below…
Bridgerton season two
It’s time to re-enter our corset-wearing era, because after months of sneak peek pictures, teaser clips and an all too juicy trailer, Netflix has finally dropped the eight-episode instalment of Bridgerton season two. Seeing in the return of the addictively scandalous Lady Whistledown – and with a fresh perspective now that her identity has been unmasked – the period drama is guaranteed to be more devious and dramatic than ever before. With our plans firmly wiped out for its arrival, we can almost guarantee we’ll be washing down the entire thing in one sitting with a crisp cold corona chaser.
Having been reacquainted with our passion for real life crime documentaries after the premiere of Tinder Swindler, we have been counting down the days for the drop of Bad Vegan. The four-part series will follow the meet-cute-gone-wrong antics between queen of vegan cuisine, Sarma Melngailis, and her new beau — costing her millions of dollars and meat suits. If the series proves to be even half as chaotic as its trailer, we are in for a hell of a ride.
Celebrity Ex on the Beach
The only guilty pleasure bigger than watching reality celebrity dating shows, is re-watching them — which is exactly how we will be spending a large portion of our days. Though it premiered two years ago, Netflix has just dropped the first-ever series of Celebrity Ex on the Beach, providing us with the easy no-concentration-needed watch we are all craving. Featuring old faces such as TOWIE’S Joey Essex and Made In Chelsea’s Miles Nazaire, we will be shamelessly streaming the series again — and again, and again.
Olivia Rodrigo: driving home 2 u
When all we can see is a seamless collation of scream-at-the-top-of-your-lungs worthy tracks, its easy to forget the gruelling blood, sweat and tears that go into creating an album. But welcoming us into the behind the scenes action of her award-winning effort SOUR, Olivia Rodrigo bares her creative process, her frustrations, her breakthroughs and pitfalls for all to see in her new documentary driving home 2 u. With Drew Barrymore claiming the watch reduced her to tears, and including raw footage of the making of “Brutal”, we are more than ready to feel all the emotions once again.
The Eyes of Tammy Faye
From his reprisal of Peter Parker to his performance in Tick, Tick… Boom!, we cannot get enough of Andrew Garfield. So naturally we had to add The Eyes of Tammy Faye to our watchlist, where the actor stars alongside the Oscar-nominated Jessica Chastain. The picture follows the true story of Tammy Faye Bakker, from her beginnings in Minnesota through to the rise and fall of her televangelism career. With the film already creating a monumental buzz at every award-ceremony of 2022, it would be rude not to stream it at this point.
