With the blissful 48 hours of freedom at your disposal there's only one thing you have to do this weekend: catch up on a week of delightful TV premieres. Snuggle up this weekend with the highly anticipated premiere of Jordan Peele's The Twilight Zone reboot; a new Veronica Mars-esque dramedy from The CW, In the Dark; and the thrilling second season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
These recommendations courtesy of TV Guide are here to help you through your weekend binge. And if you're looking for even more suggestions, head over to TV Guide's Watch This Now! page, which has hand-picked recommendations for all the best shows you can start watching immediately.
1. The Twilight Zone
From the mind of Jordan Peele comes a successful revival that no one else could have pulled off. The Twilight Zone is hitting your screen for the fourth time (the most recent attempt to revive the popular series was in 2002), and the CBS All Access adaptation tackles the weird, wild, and impossible from the perspectives of people who were cloaked in allegory by the original show. In the first few episodes, The Twilight Zone tackles police brutality and what happens when people of color assimilate whiteness. If those are any indication, the rest of the empathetic mini-movies will be well worth your time. Step — if you dare — into the Twilight Zone.
2. In the Dark
In the Dark is the start of The CW's next big era. With Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin on their final seasons, The CW seems to be dialing down the sweet and pumping up the salty if In the Dark is any indication. Produced by Ben Stiller, the Veronica Mars-esque series centers on a blind woman out to solve the mysterious death of one of her only friends. Foul mouthed, hungover, and always ready with a sharp verbal cut, Murphy (Perry Mattfeld) is a different kind of CW (anti)heroine, and Mattfeld's explosive performance alone is worth giving the show a shot.
3. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was one of the biggest hits of 2018 and it's already back with a second season. Picking up where the holiday special left off, Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) and Harvey (Ross Lynch) are still broken up. This paves the way for Sabrina to dive headfirst into the occult at the Academy of Unseen Arts. Love triangles aren't the only surprises that pop up in her path however; this season Sabrina finally meets the devil and starts testing the boundaries of her morality. As batsh-- as it is hilarious, Season 2 of Sabrina is ~the~ bingewatch of the weekend.
