What To Watch This Weekend, According To Netflix

Haven't you heard? Staying in is the new going out...

Binge, sleep, repeat.

There's a certain energy in the air when Friday rolls around, no matter what the season. People start packing up their desks a little earlier than usual, make plans for Saturday morning brunch and scroll through their dating apps looking for dinner dates. 

It can almost feel like it’s mandatory to 'do something' over the weekend.

But we here at Irish Tatler have jumped upon the latest European wellness bandwagon, Niksen - the art of doing nothing - and therefore spend our weekends embracing the full coach potato aesthetic. 

TRENDING TODAY: Three Love Island Stars Will Be On The Late Late On Friday

With the return of The Crown, season 3, a TV show that EVERYONE will be talking about come Monday morning and even a reminder of your childhood thanks to Klaus, Netflix has fully supported our plans of doing absolutely nothing. 

Keep scrolling for a complete list of everything new to Netflix this weekend

THE CROWN, SEASON 3

The third season of The Crown sees a new guard sweep into Downing Street, as Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family struggle to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing Britain. From cold-war paranoia, through to the jet-set and the space age - the exuberance of the 1960s and the long hangover of the 1970s - Elizabeth and the Royals must adapt to a new, more liberated, but also more turbulent world. Written by Peter Morgan, The Crown also stars Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Tobias Menzies as The Duke of Edinburgh, Josh O'Connor as Prince Charles, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Ben Daniels as Lord Snowdon, Jason Watkins as Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Charles Dance as Lord Mountbatten

Klaus

When Jesper (Jason Schwartzman) distinguishes himself as the postal academy’s worst student, he is stationed on a frozen island above the Arctic Circle, where the feuding locals hardly exchange words let alone letters. Jesper is about to give up when he finds an ally in local teacher Alva (Rashida Jones), and discovers Klaus (Oscar® winner J.K. Simmons), a mysterious carpenter who lives alone in a cabin full of handmade toys. These unlikely friendships return laughter to Smeerensburg, forging a new legacy of generous neighbours, magical lore and stockings hung by the chimney with care. An animated holiday comedy directed by Despicable Me co-creator Sergio Pablos, KLAUS co-stars Joan Cusack, Will Sasso and Norm Macdonald.

EARTHQUAKE BIRD

A psychologically unsettling and atmospheric thriller set in 1989 Tokyo from director Wash Westmoreland (Colette, Still Alice), Earthquake Bird follows Lucy Fly (Alicia Vikander), an enigmatic ex-pat haunted by a painful past, who enters into an intense relationship with Teiji (Naoki Kobayashi), a handsome yet similarly troubled local photographer. Lucy’s imperturbable exterior begins to crack when a naive newcomer, Lily Bridges (Riley Keough), becomes entangled in their lives and ends up missing - suspected dead.

i'm WITH THE BAND: NASTY CHERRY

In an era where there is no roadmap to success in the music industry, global pop star Charli XCX handpicked four women to form the alt-pop band, Nasty Cherry. The latest signing to Charli XCX’s label, Nasty Cherry is an unconventional mix of seasoned musicians and first-timers. This six-episode series documents their origin story - from moving in together and their first practice to their first performance and debut single release and everything in between. An intimate look into what it takes to make your dreams come true, I’m With the Band: Nasty Cherry follows the women as they navigate a new age of music, making up their own rules as they go and blowing up Instagram feeds in the process. With Charli’s support and guidance, Nasty Cherry has the potential to really catch fire…or completely implode if they can’t keep their egos and insecurities in check, and in this unfiltered and intimate series, viewers find out what it takes to make - or break -  this badass band.

jeff garlin: our man in chicago

Multi-hyphenate comedy veteran, Jeff Garlin - best known as Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Jeff Greene – brings his new Netflix comedy special Jeff Garlin: Our Man in Chicago. Filmed in his hometown, Chicago and on the 37th anniversary - to the day - of his comedy debut, the one-hour special is ripe with Garlin’s signature blend of storytelling and improv. The comedian takes viewers on a stroll down memory lane, with some detours into the personal lives of the audience, a few hours in jail and enough doughnuts to last a lifetime.
