Binge, sleep, repeat.
As the news gets grimmer by the day it’s more important than ever to focus on the things that make you happy. Going to the cinema might not be an option at the moment, but you can still go to your happy place at home thanks to Netflix.
If you’re stuck inside over the next few weeks, turn off your phone, put your feet up and enjoy everything new coming to Netflix this weekend – all of which are guaranteed to take your mind off the fact that you’re running out of loo roll.
With a new cooking show that's kind of like The Great British Bake Off, but with far more recreational drugs, the second season of hit show, After Life, a movie starring Chris Hemsworth and even something to keep the kids entertained thanks with the arrival The Willoughbys, Netflix has fully supported our plans of doing absolutely nothing.
After life, season 2
Set in the small fictitious town of Tambury, the comedy-drama series follows Tony (Ricky Gervais), a writer for the local newspaper whose life is upended after his wife dies from cancer. In series 2, whilst still struggling with immense grief for his wife, we see Tony try to become a better friend to those around him. Each grappling with their own problems and only to be intensified by the looming threat of the local newspaper being shut down. Will the town’s local Am-Dram show lift everyone’s spirits?
Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) is a fearless black market mercenary with nothing left to lose when his skills are solicited to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord.

An action-packed, edge-of-your-seat thriller directed by Sam Hargrave, EXTRACTION is an AGBO Films and TGIM Films, Inc. production, produced by Joe Russo, Anthony Russo, Mike Larocca, Chris Hemsworth, Eric Gitter, and Peter Schwerin.
