Everything to do with Chinese New Year!

Chinese New Year is this Saturday, so load up on the tikoy and celebrate—plus, a few other things to do and watch!


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Part 3



Sabrina is back! Find out what the gang of Greendale is up to in this third installment of the show. Sabrina (Kiernan Shipka) descends into hell to save her boyfriend, Nicholas Scratch (Gavin Leatherwood), for one. Her aunt Zelda (Miranda Otto) becomes High Priestess of their coven, and a lot more witchy shenanigans. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is streaming on Netflix.


Sex Education, Season 2



Another Netflix fave returned recently: the second season of Sex Education, and if you too are wondering whether Otis (Asa Butterfield) and Maeve (Emma Mackey) will get together, then join the club. After you inhale it, wish for a third season with us. Sex Education is streaming on Netflix.
