Five essential series to binge on Netflix this weekend

Are you in need of some thrilling, heartwarming, or mind-boggling entertainment to fill your weekend? Netflix has got you covered with an incredible lineup of binge-worthy series that is sure to keep you hooked from start to finish. Whether you’re a fan of dystopian tales, medical dramas, hilarious comedies, intriguing mysteries, or the supernatural, there’s something for everyone.

First up, we have the highly anticipated sixth season of Black Mirror. This season of the mind-bending anthology series explores more alternate pasts than futures and even delves into supernatural territory, which it has never done before. Not all the episodes may be your jam, but they will still be quality TV that tickles your brain.

If medical dramas are your cup of tea, you’ll be thrilled (or aghast) to know that season 19 of Grey’s Anatomy is hitting Netflix this weekend. Join the beloved doctors of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital (or whatever they are calling themselves this season) as they navigate through personal and professional challenges, all while saving lives.

Schitt’s Creek is the perfect choice for those seeking lighthearted laughs and delightful characters. This award-winning comedy series follows the riches-to-rags journey of the wealthy Rose family as they are forced to live in a small town called Schitt’s Creek, full of quirky characters. If seeing Annie Murphy charm her way through the first episode of Black Mirror season six makes you want more Murphy goodness, then this one should do it, as Alexis was her breakout role.

Looking for something more intense and mysterious? Scoop is a gripping drama by Hansal Mehta and Mrunmayee Lagoo. It follows the story of a journalist who finds herself entangled in a dangerous conspiracy, leading to her imprisonment and the ruin of her career. The show gives a peak into the competitive world of news and the farce that it has become now in many corners of the world where press freedom is at the bottom of the world. You can read our review if you need some convincing before diving in.

Last but certainly not least, we have Cabinet of Curiosities, an anthology series presented by the legendary Guillermo del Toro. Dive into the world of the supernatural and the macabre as each episode explores a different eerie tale. This 2022 horror anthology series features eight episodes that will keep you up well after you are done with them.
