You have no plans for the weekend, but you do have a nice comfy couch, blanket, and a fridge full of food and snacks, so what’s next? Binge-watching some amazing shows on Netflix, of course! What should you watch, though?
Orange Is the New Black (OITNB)
Chances are you may have seen Orange is the New Black since it ended in 2019, but if you haven’t, you should give it a watch, and even if you have seen it, it’s definitely a Netflix original show that you can watch again. Follow along for seven seasons of Piper, a corporate powerhouse turned female inmate, and the friendships and relationships she makes as she serves her sentence.
Stranger Things is one of Netflix’s most popular shows to date with season 4 volume 2 premiering July 1, 2022. Stranger Things follows the story of a group of kids who accidentally stumble onto supernatural forces and the government’s exploits to hide them. The show is filmed a lot like an early 1980s science fiction or horror movie which contributes a lot to its cult-like following.
Are you a foodie at heart? Then sink your teeth right into the Netflix original series Chef’s Table. There is six seasons worth of this one to binge and each episode takes you into the kitchen of a world-renowned chef.

The series follows Gus, a deer boy who leaves the forest he has called home in search of his mother. Season two for this one is coming soon!
The Haunting of Hill House
The Haunting of Hill House is a horror mini-series that moves between the past and present of the Hill House and the paranormal effects still felt by the five adult Craven children to this day.

If you are a Shonda Rhimes fan (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal), or you really enjoy steamy historical romances, then Bridgerton is the show for you. Note, there is a fair amount of nudity and intimacy in this one so it’s not for when the kids are around.
Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story
This Bridgerton prequel was a huge hit for Bridgerton fans and haters alike. While the story exists in the Bridgerton-verse, it had a very different tone from the other two seasons, becoming more dark and gritty as opposed to the cotton-candy love story the original Bridgerton story shows. Even if you weren’t a fan of the original series, checking out the new show is a must!
Are you a fan of British royalty? Then The Crown on Netflix might be your weekend binge-watching go-to.

F Is for Family
F is for Family is an irreverent animated comedy written by and starring comedian Bill Burr. Set in the 1970s and based on the childhood experiences of Burr growing up in Massachusetts, this one is definitely worth a watch if you are a Bill Burr fan, and if you aren’t you just might become one.
Did you grow up watching Full House? If so, and even if you didn’t you might enjoy Fuller House on Netflix, a feel-good family-friendly sitcom that gives you a look at the adult lives of the children from Full House.
