Netflix

It's (almost) the weekend! This has been a busy last few days, from The Bachelorette finale to the college admissions scandal to Beto O'Rourke's campaign announcement to the Avengers: Endgame trailer to — you get the point. We could all use a break from the news cycle, and what better way to do that than by watching some great movies and TV shows this weekend, as chosen just for you by Bustle's Entertainment editors?

Some of the nine picks below are brand-new, including films just about to hit theaters or seasons of TV shows about to be released to the masses. Others have been around for a bit, but are worth revisiting this weekend (or watching for the first time if you missed them) all the same. So if you're looking to spend the next few days ignoring the news, hanging on the couch, and taking in some pop culture entertainment, look no further — these nine movies and TV shows are the perfect choices to view this coming weekend. And best of all, most of them are available to stream, so you don't have to pay extra money or put in any more effort than necessary. What more could you ask for?
