7 new shows to watch this weekend on Netflix, Amazon, Apple and more

What should you watch this weekend? Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV Plus, and other streaming providers have added new episodes and movies.

This weekend’s programming kicks out with the first installment of Ozark Season 4, the final voyage of the Byrde family. The colossal last chapter of the crime drama is divided into two halves, giving fans plenty of time to say goodbye to Jason Bateman, Laura Linney, Julia Garner, and the rest of the stellar cast.

Three new series premiere, beginning with How I Met Your Father, which puts a new spin on the hit sitcom by featuring a female lead character as Hilary Duff, a diverse ensemble, and a distinct take on the subject. As We See It is producer Jason Katims’ latest heartfelt comedy-drama. And Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock resurrects the beloved puppets that live in caves.

Here’s our picks for what to see this weekend.

Ozark season 4 part 1 (Netflix)

Talk about flocking Byrdes from a feather. Only Marty (Jason Bateman) was involved in criminal behavior when Ozark premiered on Netflix in 2017. As the first half of the last season begins, it’s virtually the entire family. First, Wendy (Laura Linney) has declared bankruptcy, and it appears that their teenage son Jonah (Skylar Gaertner) is getting involved in the family money laundering operation.

However, there is a catch: Jonah appears to be working with Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner), Marty’s former assistant who turned on the Byrdes. She’s formed a partnership with Darlene Snell (Lisa Emery) to run their own heroin operation, which annoys the Byrdes’ boss, cartel leader Navarro (Felix Solis). He defers to Marty and Wendy to handle it, although the two are still intending to leave the Ozarks. Unfortunately, their misdeeds from the past continue to haunt them.

As We See It (Amazon Prime Video)

If Jason Katims builds it, we’ll come. The uber-producer behind Friday Night Lights and Parenthood unveils a new series, which is sure to be as heartbreaking and heartwarming as his other work. Prepare to cry ugly!

As We See It focuses on roommates Jack (Rick Glassman), Harrison (Albert Rutecki), and Violet (Sue Ann Pien). They – and the actors who represent them – are all on the autism spectrum. With the support of family, aides, and each other, the trio struggle to establish independent lives, find jobs, make friends, and fall in love. They experience setbacks and triumphs along the way, just like any young adult in their twenties.

How I Met Your Dad (Hulu)

Kids is the story of how we got a quasi-sequel spin-off from a once-popular sitcom that missed its landing. After How I Met Your Mother wrapped up its nine seasons in 2014, the show’s creators tried to make How I Met Your Dad starring Greta Gerwig, which failed (and thank goodness it allowed Gerwig to direct Lady bird).

This Is Us writers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger took another chance and here we are. Hilary Duff stars as hopeless romantic Sophie, whose eldest (Kim Cattrall) tells the titular story to her son. The spinoff is more diverse than the original, and there are Easter eggs and callbacks for HIMYM fans to enjoy. But is it legen – wait for it – dary? We wouldn’t place a slap bet on that.

Billions season 6 (Showtime)

The end of Season 5 felt a bit like a series finale for Billions, with Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) fleeing to the Safe Zone without extradition from Switzerland. But the glossy drama will continue without him. Mogul Michael Prince (Corey Stoll) takes the place of Axe, who becomes the new target of New York Attorney General Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti).

Prince is already making moves, like a play to bring the Olympics to town, which Chuck is determined to thwart by stoking a populist anti-billionaire movement. Meanwhile, former Ax employees must all find their place in the new order, including Wendy (Maggie Siff), Wags (David Costabile) and Taylor (Asia Kate Dillon).

Servant Season 3 (Apple TV Plus)

M. Night Shyamalan has a knack for giving viewers goosebumps. His horror series Servant flew under the radar, terrifying a small but loyal audience. Season 3 somehow feels even darker and more disturbing than the first two installments, if that’s even possible.

Servant follows Dorothy (Lauren Ambrose), who cannot accept that her baby died tragically and treats a doll as if it were Jericho. She even hires a nanny, Leanne (Nell Tiger Free), whose arrival seems to transform the doll into a real baby. In Season 3, Jericho mysteriously returns and causes another wave of chaos.

Fraggle Rock: Return to the Rock (Apple TV Plus)

Jim Henson has created some of the most lovable and iconic puppet characters in screen history, including the Muppets and the Sesame Street Gang. He was also the originator of the Fraggles, colorful creatures that live in caves. The Fraggle Rock series ran from 1983 to 1987 and captivated a generation of kids.

Now it’s gotten a reboot as delicious as the original. Familiar faces such as Gogo, Red and Boober return, alongside new Fraggles and Doozers voiced by special guest stars Patti LaBelle, Cynthia Erivo, Daveed Diggs, Ed Helms and Kenan Thompson. They embark on epic and hilarious adventures to celebrate and care for our interconnected world.

Too Hot to Handle Season 3 (Netflix)

Too Hot to Handle returns with a fresh ensemble of attractive singles who have a chance to make some money – if they can only stay away from each other. As in past seasons, 10 to 15 men and women spend a month at a tropical retreat in order to break the cycle of pointless adventures and establish genuine relationships.

Season 3 of the dating program ups the ante by doubling the prize money to $200,000 and increasing the punishments for breaching the rules. Kisses are now $6,000, and other activities like as caressing, intercourse, and self-gratification will be priced similarly.
