The weekend has arrived and with it, a fresh batch of new releases available across all of your favourite streaming services. I’ve picked out some of this weekend’s highlights including the latest Marvel Studios series, as well as an Amazon Original series starring Jeremy Clarkson.
Lupin Season 2

After the success of Marvel television shows WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Disney+ brings us the latest Marvel series, Loki. Loki follows the God of Mischief as he steps out of his brothers shadow and ends up in a crime thriller, travelling through time and altering human history. Episode 1 was released yesterday and is absolutely brilliant! You can check out my first thoughts on it here.

Jeremy Clarkson finally gets his own standalone Amazon series and as the title suggests, the series follows a year in the life of Jeremy Clarkson as he becomes Britain’s most unlikely farmer. The whole concept of Jeremy on a farm is just brilliant and it will fascinating to watch how he deals with unpredictable weather, disobedient animals and an unexpected pandemic.
