This weekend, Netflix is adding the sequel series to That ’70s Show, a French historical drama TV series, and a French comedy TV series.
This weekend, Netflix is adding a TV series set in the 1990s, a French historical drama TV series, and a French comedy TV series to add some balance. Last weekend, the streaming giant didn’t see much licensed content added to its catalog, with the limited series Scattered Barriers, the Indian movie Thai Massage, and the Nollywood movie The Wait, but it brought the true-crime documentary The Hatcher Wielding Hitchhiker, season 2 of Vikings: Valhalla, and the drama movie Dog Gone, starring Rob Lowe.
This weekend, Netflix will add a variety of licensed content, with the first seasons of the Japanese TV series Miu404 and Quartet, the thriller movie The Devil To Play, the documentary The Pez Outlaw, season 1 of the Korean TV series Awaken, the Turkish documentary Sweetie, season 28 of The Real World, and season 2 of the anime series Demon Slayer. As for original content, Netflix will bring one of its most anticipated TV shows, which happens to be the continuation of a beloved sitcom, along with a historical drama TV series and a French comedy series. Here are the best movies and TV shows coming to Netflix this weekend – January 20.
The sequel TV series to the beloved sitcom That ‘70s Show is now available to stream on Netflix, and it’s welcoming the audience back to Point Place… but in 1995. Leia Forman (Callie Haverda), Eric and Donna’s daughter, is visiting her grandparents, Kitty and Red, for the summer, and she’s desperate for some adventure or at least a best friend who isn’t her dad. Leia finds exactly what she’s looking for when she meets Gwen, Kitty and Red’s rebellious neighbor, who along with her friends, takes Leia on different adventures that may or may have not happened to Eric and his friends back in the 1970s. Of course, Kitty is happy to have Leia and friends at home, but the same can’t be said about Red. Along with a new generation of troublemakers, That ‘90s Show will welcome the original cast back, with Topher Grace, Laura Prepon, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, and Wilmer Valderrama making special guest appearances.
Women at War (original title: Les Combattantes) is a French historical drama TV series created by Cécile Lorne. Set in 1914 France, it sees the destinies of four women intersecting: Marguerite de Lancastel (Audrey Fleurot), a mysterious sex worker; Caroline Dewitt (Sofia Essaïdi), the head of the family factory; Agnes (Julie De Bona), the Mother Superior of a requisitioned convent; and Suzanne Faure (Camille Lou), a feminist nurse. Each one is dealing with their own issues in every area of their lives, all while French forces try to keep the Germans from overrunning Paris.
Represent (original title: En Place) is a French comedy TV series. It’s the story of a youth center leader (played by Jean-Pascal Zadi) from the suburbs of Paris who becomes a candidate in the presidential election – the real question, however, is if France is truly ready for a Black president. Also starring in Represent are Marina Foïs, Benoît Poelvoorde, Eric Judor, and Fadily Camara.
