What to stream this weekend
Spending the weekend indoors and not sure what to watch? TV Guide editor Krutika Mallikarjuna has a few suggestions. Here’s what you should stream this weekend:
1. “Dietland”: The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies returns to television in this killer new dramedy about a journalist (Joy Nash) whose journey to self-improvement puts her in front of two feminist factions: one that focuses on self-help and empowerment, and an extremist group that believes murdering abusive men is the way to go. Margulies will play magazine editor Kitty Montgomery, who can barely hide her disdain for her ghostwriter Plum Kettle (Nash). The series premiered Monday on AMC, but you can stream episodes through the network’s app.
2. “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger”: On the heels of Runaways, Marvel delivers another fresh teen drama with this exciting new series about polar opposites who gain superpowers and gradually fall in love. Aubrey Joseph stars as Tyrone, aka Cloak, a troubled overachiever with the ability to teleport and engulf others in darkness. Meanwhile, Olivia Holt plays Tandy, aka Dagger, a rebel who can emit light daggers. The series premiered with back-to-back episodes on Thursday on Freeform. You can also catch new episodes streaming on Hulu.
3. “The Staircase”: Netflix’s has acquired all episodes of the long-running true-crime sensation, including three brand-new installments. The series follows Michael Peterson, a novelist accused of murdering his wife who was found dead at the bottom of the stairs in their North Carolina home. Prep those conspiracy theories and settle in for a doozy of a case. The docu-series is on Netflix on Friday.
4. “Sense8”: When Netflix announced the series’ cancellation last year, its vocal fan base quickly jumped into action with a campaign to bring the show back. While Sense8 remains very much caput, fan efforts did convince the streaming platform to wrap up the show’s stories with a feature-length series finale. Find out what happens to Wolfgang and the rest of the crew when the show officially ends its run on Friday.
