The weekend has finally arrived! Goodbye working and hello couch. 

If you're taking it easy at any point this weekend and planned to spend it with Netflix, you're in luck. There's loads of brand new content arriving for you to enjoy. 

Happy bingeing! 

Everything Sucks 

Set in the real life town of Boring, Oregon in 1996, Everything Sucks! is a quirky, funny coming of age story that revolves around Boring High School’s A/V Club and Drama Club— two crews of nerdy-edgy outsiders, who join forces to make a movie and endure the purgatory known as high school.   

Irreplaceable You

Newly engaged Abbie and Sam have been the love of each other's lives since childhood. But when the future they envisioned together takes a tragic turn, their relationship is put to the ultimate test.

First Team: Juventus (season 1)

This 6 episode docu-series follows the most compelling stories and characters in the club during the 2017-2018 season, spending time with the players both on and off the field, on the road, at home and wherever it takes to capture in depth the real lives that make Juventus one of the most fascinating teams in the world.   

Magic Mike XXL 

It's been three years since Mike Lane's (Channing Tatum) retirement from stripping, but the former dancer misses the excitement and feeling of being on stage. Most of all, though, he misses the best friends that he ever had, the crew known as the Kings of Tampa. Opportunity comes knocking when the guys look him up as they travel to Myrtle Beach, S.C., for a stripper convention. With the promise of outrageous fun, a reinvigorated Mike can't resist the chance to join in and take it off again.

The Pursuit of Happyness 

Life is a struggle for single father Chris Gardner (Will Smith). Evicted from their apartment, he and his young son (Jaden Smith) find themselves alone with no place to go. Even though Chris eventually lands a job as an intern at a prestigious brokerage firm, the position pays no money. The pair must live in shelters and endure many hardships, but Chris refuses to give in to despair as he struggles to create a better life for himself and his son.

The Joel McHale Show with Joe McHale

In case it wasn't evident from the title, Joel McHale hosts this weekly series that takes a look at pop culture and news through celebrity guests, comedy sketches and video clips. The premise is reminiscent of one of McHale's former projects, "The Soup," but being on Netflix instead of basic cable gives McHale more leeway to be more adult-oriented than he was on that long-running show. Each episode premieres on Sunday, providing a recap of the week that was in the entertainment world. In addition to hosting, McHale serves as an executive producer of the eponymous series.

The Interview

Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) are the team behind the popular tabloid-TV show "Skylark Tonight." After learning that North Korea's Kim Jong Un (Randall Park) is a huge fan of the show, they successfully set up an interview with him, hoping to legitimize themselves as actual journalists. However, as Dave and Aaron prepare for their journey to Pyongyang, the CIA steps in, recruits them, and assigns them an incredible mission: Assassinate the dictator.

Chris Rock also has a brand new stand-up special that landed this week. Check out the details on that here
