The ten-part series follows the sisters as they attempt to get revenge on their newly-discovered corrupt family. You’ll need to pay full attention to follow the plot through the drama and intense actions, so you don’t miss anything.

Maid | Imdb

Maid: An excellent film on domestic violence, Maid is next on our list of the top ten movies to binge-watch on Netflix this weekend.

Alice in Borderland | Rottentomatoes

Alice in Borderland: If you loved Squid Game, then you should check out Alice in Borderland. With two seasons, the Japanese sci-fi is based on a manga of the same name.

King Of Boys | Netflix

The sequel follows Eniola Salami (Oba) as she navigates politics and Godfatherism to emerge victorious while battling for her rightful place as the King of the Underworld.

Omo Ghetto The Saga: First released in 2020, Omo Ghetto The Saga follows the story of a twin with contrasting lifestyles. With one refined and sophisticated, the other could not have been more different as the Ghetto Queen and leader of the Askamaya twins.

The star-studded film has been described as an ‘ode to gangsterism in the slums’ by the Premium Times.

Castle & Castle: Nothing says drama than a story centred around a top law firm. The series set in a law firm owned by Remi and Tega Castle follows the struggles to keep the company afloat despite marital and occupational differences among the couple.

Featuring the likes of Dakore Akande, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Denola Grey and Dorcas Shola Fapson, to mention a few, Castle & Castle should definitely get on your binge-watch list this weekend.
