Netflix is releasing a bunch of new shows to get you through the weekend. It’s a foreshadowing of all the stellar content coming our way during April, so be sure to check back for updates.
If all holds up, there will be no load shedding this weekend. However, make sure the power banks are charged and you download all the essential shows and movies to your app just in case. Ted Blom painted a dire picture about the future of load shedding.
So, what’s on the menu this week? Oh, so much. From drama and comedy to scifi and thrillers. Don’t forget the popcorn.
