5 good Netflix shows to watch this weekend

The last weekend of September is here, which means fall is officially here. This weekend is an excellent time to binge-watch some new episodes or catch up on some older shows on Netflix.

There are a bunch of new Netflix shows and movies coming in October, so make sure you’re all caught up by the time those new Netflix shows are released.

Let’s get the list started with The Good Place! 

1. The Good Place

This weekend, the fourth and final season of The Good Place is available to stream on Netflix. The fourth season will pick right up where season 3 concluded.

The Good Place received many nominations during the 2020 Primetime Emmys. Sadly, the series never took home any awards during its run. Along with many guest stars, the main cast consists of Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil and Manny Jacinto.

The series follows Eleanor (Bell) and her journey in the afterlife. She mistakenly ends up in The Good Place and decides to become a better person to ensure she stays there.

Be sure to check out the final season of the TV series. If you have never watched this series, this is an excellent weekend to binge-watch the entire series.

2. Van Helsing

Van Helsing season 4 will be released on Netflix on Sept. 27. This gives you a bit of time to get caught up with the first three seasons ahead of that release.

This series is a reimagined story based on the classic Dracula story. Vanessa Van Helsing (Kelly Overton) awakens from a coma to a vampire infested world. From her last name, you can probably guess she is a descendant of the famed vampire hunter, Abraham Van Helsing.

Overton is joined by castmates Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl. Vincent Gale, Rukiya Bernard, Trezzo Mahoro and Aleks Paunovic.

Syfy has renewed the series for a fifth and final season.

A great way to kick off your Halloween viewing.

3. The Chef Show

Writer, director and food enthusiast Jon Favreau and chef Roy Choi brings us more episodes of The Chef Show. 

The first season consisted of three volumes that had at least six episodes each. The newest season, volume one, has five episodes. Favreau and Choi, along with special guests, experiment with many styles of baking and cooking.

Previous special guests have included Robert Downey Jr., Kevin Feige, Tom Holland,  Gwyneth Paltrow, Seth Rogan, The Russo Brothers and Wolfgang Puck.

They even share some of their recipes on The Chef Show website to try your hand at them.

4. Wentworth

The eighth season of Wentworth will be released on Sept. 30. Although you might not be able to binge sevens season ahead of that release, you can at least give it your all.

This Australian TV drama follows Bea Smith (Danielle Cormack), who is in Wentworth prison after being charged with the attempted murder of her husband. Bea tries to adjust to prison life.

Below is the official trailer for season eight.

5. The Worst Witch

Just in time for Halloween fun, the series The Worst Witch season 4 will be released on Oct. 1. This gives you time to watch the current seasons available on Netflix.

The Worst Witch is a fantasy children’s series about a group of young witches who attend a school of magic. This series is based on a collection of books written by Jill Murphy that were published between 1974-2018. There are eight books in the series.

It hasn’t been announced if the series will be renewed for a fifth season, but the school in the books will last for five years, so perhaps the series will follow.

Have a great weekend. What will you be watching? Let us know in the comments below.
