The first seven episodes of a this two-part season 4 will all drop this Friday on the streamer. Not to be outdone, Disney+ is launching the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi on Friday, too.

New on Netflix May 27: Stranger Things Season 4: Volume 1


Season three of Stranger Things introduced us to new cast members like Maya Hawke’s ice cream scooping Robin, and Paul Reiser as the mysterious Dr. Owens (remember when he showed up!?) and it left off with us wondering whether or not Eleven was really stripped of her powers, and who the mysterious prisoner referred to as “the American” in a Russian prison might be. Season four, which is new on Netflix this week, seeks to answer some of our lingering questions from last season, while posing a whole bunch of new ones too. These new episodes also mark the return of Brett Gelman as conspiracy theorist Murray Bauman, and new faces like Robert Englund (that’s Freddy Krueger in case you didn’t know), who’s getting in on the meta-’80s-horror fun.

New on Hulu May 27: Look At Me: XXXTentacion


Look At Me: XXXTentacion, which chronicles the life and death of a rising music star is new on Hulu this weekend. Jahseh Onfroy was just 20 years old when he was murdered, and he made just as many headlines for his violent behavior as he did for his music in his short life, but in this Hulu Original documentary, his tumultuous life is given a closer look thanks to the participation of his mother and other friends close to him.

New on Disney+ May 27: Obi-Wan Kenobi

Star Wars fans have patiently been waiting for Obi-Wan Kenobi, which is new on Disney Plus this Friday. The limited series feels like something of the crown jewel of all the Star Wars series that have been made for the streamer (don’t get me wrong, I love me some Mando and Boba, but having Obi-Wan and Darth Vader reunite is almost as exciting as when the original realworld cast reunited for Homecoming last year). Obi-Wan Kenobi will surely be one of the best shows to watch this weekend if you need a conversation starter at your backyard barbecue.
