Next to Christmas, everyone knows the most wonderful times of the year are indeed Fridays. Just try to name a better way to spend your Friday than cozying up solo, or with a loved one, to enjoy some amazing entertainment. In case you were conflicted about what you’re going to watch this weekend, JETflix has got you covered with films and TV shows to tune in to!
Degrassi: Next Class
Both Netflix and Canada’s Family Channel will air 20 new episodes of Degrassi starting in 2016. While this isn’t the treat that us old heads were hoping for, i.e. the series that features the original cast, the show will give us a glimpse of the old school program that we’ve come to love. Degrassi: Next Class will explore the stories of post-millennial teens, known as Generation Z, most of who weren’t even born when Degrassi returned in 2001. Unfortunately, there’s no trailer for the upcoming season just yet, but in case you’ve never seen the show, check out this oldie but goodie from Degrassi: The Next Generation. You may recognize a familiar face.

This 2015 American comedy-drama film is directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and written by Jesse Andrews. It’s based on Andrews’ 2012 debut novel of the same name.

Orange is the New Black
Netflix has a way of making us wait an entire year for its original series. Well ladies and gents, the wait is over for Orange is the New Black! The comedy-drama series is based on Piper Kerman’s memoir, “Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison. And Boy. Is. It. Good. This season will be nothing short of the drama, slick talking, love, hate and confusion that we’ve seen since the series debuted in 2013. Orange is the New Black was supposed to hit Netflix on June 12, but fans got a plesant surprise when it dropped early on June 11. YES!
