The best new TV and films to stream this week – from Bridgerton to Arsene Wenger: Invincible

WHETHER you're a sports fan or a period drama lover, there's something for everyone on TV this week.

The Sun's TV Mag has a full rundown of the most-see shows on the different streaming services over the next seven days.

WHAT'S NEW

Bridgerton – Netflix

The global TV phenomenon that is Bridgerton finally returns, promising eight new episodes of raunchy Regency-era romance.

Following the departure of Regé-Jean Page – much to the continuing distress of legions of Bridgerton obsessives – the new season turns its attention to the romantic misadventures of Anthony (Jonathan Bailey), the eldest of the Bridgerton siblings.

Anthony is on the hunt for a suitable wife, which is mission impossible when you’re as picky as he is. But miracles do happen and when Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran) arrives on the scene from India, hot-headed charmer Anthony decides he’s found the perfect candidate for the job. Indeed, for him, it really is a job – he even has a job description: “Tolerable, dutiful, suitable enough hips for childbearing and at least half a brain.” Nice.

The moment Edwina’s sister Kate (Simone Ashley) gets wind that Anthony isn’t after Edwina as a love match, just as someone who fits the bill, she decides to do everything she can to stop their union. Trouble is, forbidden sparks are soon flying between Kate and Anthony. Oops.

We’ll also be catching up with all our other favourite characters, including Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor), the Featheringtons – we’re excited to see how Penelope’s (Nicola Coughlan) story develops after last season’s big reveal – and Eloise (Claudia Jessie), who’s making her debut into society.

Pachinko – Apple TV+

If you like your family sagas epic, sweeping and cinematic, you’ll love this new drama based on the mega-selling novel by Min Jin Lee. Spread over eight episodes and centring around Sunja, a Korean woman desperate to forge a better life for herself, Pachinko is the story of four generations of one family, and it’s a heady tale of war, romance, crime and ambition.

Hopping between decades and continents, it features a strong cast – including Korean legend Youn Yuh-jung as middle-aged Sunja – and is told in Japanese, Korean and English.

Full Metal Junkies – Discovery+

From an American school bus transformed into luxury mobile holiday home, to two double deckers that slot next to each other to create a swanky full size house, it seems that is beyond Jim Stewart and his hilarious team of craftsmen, carpenters and welders who work wonders at their vehicle upcycling yard.

In this fantastic six-part series, we follow Jim and the guys as they pull off some genuinely mind-blowing transformations – and have an awesome, laughter-filled time doing it.

Arsene Wenger: Invincible – Amazon Prime

The life and legacy of legendary Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger is celebrated in this intimate new documentary, which uses the Gunners’ unbeaten 2003-2004 Premier League season as a backdrop.

Featuring insights from the man himself – he admits his hatred of losing sometimes made him “inhuman” – the film includes contributions from the likes of Thierry Henry, Ian Wright and nemesis-turned-friend Sir Alex Ferguson.

Available Friday

Luxe Listings Sydney – Amazon Prime

There was loads to love about the first series of this Australian take on the craze for real estate reality shows. The houses were spectacular, the city stunning and the agents – D’Leanne Lewis, Simon Cohen and Gavin Rubinstein –an enjoyable blend of ambitious and, well, awful.

Expect more of the same as the trio return, hustling their way to some more mega-money house deals.

The Dropout – Disney+

Amanda Seyfried is utterly convincing as real-life disgraced biotech entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes in this jaw-dropping drama about the young billionaire’s downfall. Anyone in need of something to fill that Inventing Anna hole in their lives need look no further.

Yes it’s violent, yes it’s gritty, but the new season of the hit crime drama is also horribly gripping. Dushane (Ashley Walters) still rules the roost on the Summerhouse Estate but trouble is brewing and he’s soon seeking help from an unexpected quarter..

Our House – ITV Hub & Sky On Demand
