Happy Labour Day weekend—otherwise known as the unofficial-official end of summer and the time of year when we say goodbye long to beach days and evening patio sessions and hello to pumpkin spice everything. It’s not all bad though: fall premiere season is just around the corner and soon enough you will have every excuse to bail on your friends, get cozy at home with a snack or two and binge all the TV you want. Sounds good, doesn’t it? We know, and in case you wanted to start your secluded fall hibernation early, we got you.
Here are three things to watch on Crave this weekend.
New episode airs Fri Aug-30-19 @ 6 AM ET (Crave Movies + HBO)
It’s very possible you missed Season One of HBO’s best-kept secret, Succession. But, with three Emmy nominations this year, including Outstanding Drama Series, it is a secret no more, and with good reason. A mix of both dry and dark comedy with a whole lot of drama, you won’t find a more likable morally corrupt global-media family than the Roys. If you’re all caught up, you can actually watch this week’s episode two days early, along with a new episode of HBO’s hit drama, The Righteous Gemstones and a new episode of the final season of Ballers. All three dropped on Crave August 30 at 6am, two days ahead of schedule—consider it a Labour Day Long Weekend gift.
New episode airing Sun Sep-1-19 @ 10 PM ET (Crave)
We promise; On Becoming a God in Central Florida is unlike any other series you’ve seen before. This weekend, enter the wacky world of pyramid schemes, marriage drama, ‘90s nostalgia, alligators and pitch-perfect satire. Loosely based on true events, and set in 1992, the series follows a minimum wage waterpark employee’s rise to the top of a multibillion cosmetic “marketing company.” OBAGICF is a series that truly comes out of left field and could really only be set in Florida. Did we forget to mention it’s fronted by an incredible cast, which includes Kirsten Dunst, Alexander Skargard and rising Canadian star Theodore Pellerin. Watch the first two episodes on Crave now and catch new episodes weekly, every Sunday at 10pm.

Hidden Gem: New Homeland (Crave)
This week’s hidden gem comes from two-time Academy Award winning filmmaker, Barbara Kopple. In her latest documentary New Homeland, Kopple, chronicles the experience of five young refugee boys, from war-torn Syria and Iraq, as they experience a rural Ontario rite of passage: summer camp. At Camp Pathfinder, the boys explore the Canadian wilderness for the first time, while adjusting to a new country, and learn how to camp, canoe and even fish. New Homeland is a touching Canadian story of a community that opened their doors to a group of displaced people, and the profound effect their kindness and hostility had on their lives.
