What to Stream the Weekend of May 25

Spending the weekend indoors and not sure what to watch? TV Guide editor Krutika Mallikarjuna has a few suggestions. Here's what you should stream this weekend.

1. Terrace House: Opening New Doors

The Japanese reality series returns for another dose of mild-mannered drama like whether or not it's a good idea to hold hands. This time, the show heads to Karuizawa, a resort town in the mountains of Nagano which is a far cry from the previous season which took place on the sun-kissed island of Hawaii. Catch the new housemates in action now on Netflix.

2. Ibiza

This raunchy rom-com centers on a young woman and her two friends who pursue an attractive DJ in Spain. The comedy features an all-star lineup made up of Gillian Jacobs, Vanessa Bayer, Phoebe Robinson, and Richard Madden. It heads to Netflix on Friday, May 25.

3. Picnic at Hanging Rock

Adapted from Joan Lindsay's 1967 novel, the six-part series follows the mysterious disappearances of three schoolgirls and their governess on Valentine's Day in 1900. The series explores the impact of the traumatic event as theories about why they've gone missing start to spread like wildfire. Catch the drama, which stars Natalie Dormer, when it arrives Friday, May 25 on Netflix.

4. The Break With Michelle Wolf

Fresh off her divisive segment at this year's White House Correspondents dinner, the comedian takes the helm in this Netflix original series which pokes fun at everyone and everything in the news. A new episode streams every Sunday starting on May 27.

5. The Fourth Estate

The docu-series follows the New York Times during the Trump era as they try to cover an unconventional president who tries to undermine them at every turn. Oscar-nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus highlights the critical issues journalists face today through hard-hitting interviews with those fighting for freedom of the press and America's right to know what's happening. The illuminating series premieres Sunday, May 27 at 8/7c on Showtime but you can also stream episodes through the network's app.

Watch the Trailer Strange Angel, a Sex Magick Period Piece Coming to CBS All Access

Strange Angel, CBS All Access' upcoming series inspired by the wild life of rocket scientist/sex magician Jack Parsons, got its first trailer on Wednesday, and it looks like a heady mix of science, occult, romance, sex, genius and madness.

The series -- CBS All Access' first not based on another show -- stars Transformers: Age of Extinction's Jack Reynor as Parsons, a janitor at a chemical factory in 1930s Pasadena who dreams of building rockets that will send people to the moon. He has smarts, but he doesn't necessarily have the special sauce until he meets his new neighbor, Ernest Donovan (Homeland's Rupert Friend), who introduces him to an occult religion created by Aleister Crowley, "the wickedest man in the world." Soon, Parsons is performing sex magick rituals to actualize his dreams into reality, which doesn't sit well with his wife Susan (The Man in the High Castle's Bella Heathcote).

The trailer doesn't look as HBO as the premise. There's not a lot of sex, and it seems like the show is starting with the origin story before it gets to the real juicy stuff of Parsons working for the U.S. government by day while hosting orgies at his mansion at night. Maybe in Season 2.

The series is executive-produced by Black Swan screenwriter Mark Heyman and Ridley Scott.

Strange Angel premieres on CBS All Access Thursday, June 14, with new episodes of the 10-episode first season dropping on subsequent Thursdays.

Kim Cattrall Boards Kevin Williamson's Fairy-Tale Thriller Tell Me A Story

Kevin Williamson's fairy-tale thriller Tell Me a Story is bringing in some serious talent for its inaugural season.

In her first regular role in a U.S. series since Sex and the City, Kim Cattrall will play Colleen, an unconventional grandmother whose son moves back in with her, bringing along his troubled teen daughter. However, the choir girl-turned-rebel is going to have to step her game up and become the protector of her family against some very dark forces.

Set in present day New York City, the CBS All Access series turns classic fairy tales like "The Three Little Pigs" and "Little Red Riding Hood" into dark tales of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder. The series is based on the Spanish-language series by Marcos Osorio Vidal.

Alongside Cattrall, the series also stars Billy Magnussen, who you might recognize from the "USS Callister" episode of Black Mirror and as Nathan Hill in Epix's Get Shorty series. In Tell Me a Story, he'll step into the role of Nick, a handsome high school teacher who may very well be a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Williamson will serve as writer and executive producer on the series. Liz Friedlander will also executive produce and direct the first two episodes. Her credits include Marvel's Jessica Jones, The Gifted and the upcoming crime drama The Rookie starring Nathan Fillion.
