Check out the best Netflix shows to watch this weekend.


Ozark is one of the most highly anticipated series releases for 2022. The fourth and final season of the series will be released in two parts, each consisting of seven episodes.

The story of the Byrde family’s dive into the crime world of the Lake of the Ozarks has left viewers longing for the next episodes since 2020. The fourth season will pick up where the third left off, with the Byrde’s organization undergoing significant changes. One of their colleagues was killed in a surprising move, and one of their own has now flipped sides and is no longer working with the Byrdes.

In a final season, anything goes, so be sure to get those episodes viewed before any significant events can be spoiled.

The Puppet Master: Hunting the Ultimate Conman

Another true crime docuseries has been released on Netflix. The Puppet Master: Hunting the Ultimate Conman is a limited series that tells of the UK’s most manipulative con artists.

In the early ’90s, conman Robert Hendy-Freegard devised a scheme where he posed as a British spy to manipulate and steal from his victims. The three-part limited docuseries uses reenactments to tell the sad tale of this conman’s exploits that left the lives of the families he conned in ruins.

Derry Girls

The British sit-com Derry Girls is an offbeat coming-of-age story that will delight fans with ’90s nostalgia and endear them to the well-played characters. Currently, the series has two seasons on Netflix, with a third coming in 2022. This is a great time to binge the series and ready yourself for the third and final season.

Set in Derry, North Ireland, in the mid-90s, the story follows five teens who attend Our Lady Immaculate College. The school is a fictional girls’ Catholic secondary school based on the real-life Thornhill College that creator Lisa McGee attended. The story is fictional but does show real-life events of the time, including the 1994 IRA ceasefire and US President Bill Clinton’s visit to the region.

The series is filled with offbeat and often dark humor and is a raw look at teens growing up and the issues they face at school and with their families.
