Welcome to the weekend, Netflix fans. Fall is quickly approaching, and when you aren’t out trying to hold on to the last bit of summer, it’s best to sit back and relax with some new Netflix original shows.

Luckily, there are a few new Netflix shows to watch this weekend, along with some holdouts from the Netflix Top 10!

The Netflix Top 10 is very similar to last week, with many of the same titles holding strong. We did have a few news shows, though, like Saved by the Bell, Jack Whitehall Travels with my Father, The Circle (new episode weekly), Money Heist and Manifest.

Best Shows on Netflix


How can you beat this series? Well, you can’t. The sixth and final season of Lucifer has premiered, and fans can’t get enough. It’s No. 1 again this week and probably will be next week as well.

How can you go wrong with a sexy satan himself who was so bored with hell that he moved to LA? He opens a nightclub, consults with the LAPD, and walks around looking like that!

If you haven’t watched this one yet, this IS your only weekend binge.

Sex Education season 3

The third season of Sex Education has finally been released, the second season premiered in January 2020, so it seems like forever since a new episode has aired.

The third season will logically follow events from the second, and as the trailer has shown, a new Headmaster arrives and wants to drastically change things at Moordale.

With new episodes just airing, it’s the perfect time to binge this series if you haven’t already.

Below is the third season trailer (tip: don’t watch if you haven’t seen the first two seasons!).

Nailed it! 

The Netflix reality series Nailed It! released its sixth season this week. This is no ordinary reality series. This one was inspired by people who have tried and failed to make extraordinary cakes on the internet.

Three amateur bakers attempt to recreate edible masterpieces for the $10,000 prize, and the Nailed It! trophy. The creations don’t always look the best, but kudos to the contestants for trying.

Comic Nicole Byer and renowned pastry chef Jacques Torres host the series and put the contestants through their challenges.

The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals season 2 

The World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals is in its second season, which consists of eight episodes and just premiered on Netflix.

From modern stays to cabin life to even paranormal stays, this season has it all. With summer quickly ending, it will be a great series to hold on to that last bit of the season by viewing these incredible destinations.

The three travelers,  Megan Batoon, Jo Franco and Luis D. Ortiz, will show you affordable rentals, unique destinations as well as the best in luxury vacation rentals. Not only the best places to stay but the fantastic experiences available while you enjoy your stay plus all the expert tips and tricks.

Dear White People 

Season 4 of Dear White People will release on Sept. 22, so now is the perfect time to binge the first three seasons. This dramedy follows several college students who attend a fictional Ivy League school, Winchester University. The series is based on a film of the same name.

Justin Simien, the film’s writer and director, returns to do the same for the series. The series stars Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, DeRon Horton, Antoinette Robertson, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson, Marque Richardson and DJ Blickenstaff.

Season 4 is the final season of the series, so you better catch up!

Squid Game

A new series called Squid Game has recently been released on Netflix. This series hails from South Korea and is a story about people who risk their lives for a $40 million prize.

A group of 456 people has been invited to compete in a survival game called Squid Game. Each person has experienced a struggle during their lives and will now compete for the $40 million prize. There is only one winner in this game where the competitions are based on traditional children’s games with deadly twists. Their lives are at risk, but if they win, it will be worth it.
