Take a break from the pre-Halloween scares this weekend to laugh (and then cry) with the conclusion of a returning favourite, a hysterical new dramedy and a French tearjerker.
Silicon Valley’s sixth and final season picks up right where it left off with Thomas Middleditch, Martin Starr, Zach Woods and Kumail Nanjiani returning to everyone’s favourite tech satire. The show has been a major hit with critics and fans thanks to Mike Judge’s pointed look at what happens when a start-up company on the cusp of financial success continually experiences setbacks (albeit hilarious ones). We’re excited to see how this Emmy-winning comedy says goodbye. Catch up on previous episodes before the season premiere drops on October 27 at 10pm.
Tom Perrotta brings his novel Mrs. Fletcher to life in this hilarious new limited series. A mid-life crisis has never looked sexier as Bad Moms’ Kathryn Hahn brings her brand of risqué humour to the role of Eve Fletcher, a recently divorce woman on a journey of sexual reawakening. As the writer of multiple novels adapted into Academy Award-nominated films and the creator of The Leftovers, executive producer Perrotta brings a lot of credibility to the series. Mrs. Fletcher is an insightful and hilarious comedy, proving you’re never too old to reinvent yourself. Stream the first episode on October 27 at 10:30pm.
Kathryn Hahn’s new show is a unique look at motherhood and self-discovery
