5. Riverdale

More from Entertainment

Let’s start with a season to binge-watch. Riverdale Season 4 is now streaming on Netflix, and it’s yours for the binging. While it has an abrupt ending, it’s not too bad, especially since we know there is a fifth season.

It all starts with Archie learning about his dad’s accident. This was a way to allow the show to write out the late Luke Perry after his untimely death, offering the cast and fans a chance to mourn and grieve. While the end of the season has sparked debate and annoyance, the start of the season is good old-fashioned Riverdale fun.

4. I Know This Much Is True

One episode of the Mark Ruffalo drama has already aired, so use the weekend to catch up on that if you haven’t watched it yet. Otherwise, we’re jumping straight into the second episode, which airs on Sunday night.

When the media takes an interest in Thomas’s case, tensions rise between Dominick and his girlfriend. Meanwhile, Dominick’s social work, Lisa, decides to probe into Thomas’s past.

3. The Great

Need another show to binge-watch? Fans of satirical comedy will want to turn to Hulu. The Great dropped on Friday and is now available to stream. It’s focused on the life of Catherine the Great when she was younger, although don’t expect historical accuracy.

If you loved The Favourite, you’re going to enjoy The Great. From watching the screeners, I can tell you it’s a good laugh.

2. Hightown

If you’re in the mood for a new TV crime drama, STARZ is the place to turn. This premium cable network has the pilot episode of Hightown airing on Sunday. You’ll be able to watch from midnight on the app but will have to wait until 8/7c on the channel.

Chicago Fire‘s Monica Raymund stars as Jackie, a marine officer who spends her days drinking and partying. When she finds a body on the beach, her world is turned upside down and she thinks only she can solve the mystery.

1. Snowpiercer

Speaking of mysteries, there’s another to tune into this weekend. Snowpiercer finally premieres, and it is certainly worth the wait. The first episode introduces us to the train and setting (for those who haven’t watched the movie or read the graphic novels) and gives us the murder mystery to solve.

There are plenty of questions about who we can trust on this train. What secret is Melanie Cavill hiding and will Andre Layton work it out?
