It’s been ten days since The Duchess aired on Netflix and it’s been a sensation, to say the least…

For those living under a rock, The Duchess is a glittering new comedy series directed by Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan, who also happens to play the lead. Loosely based on Ryan’s real life, this story of a single mum who will do whatever it takes to have another baby is hilarious, emotional and simply stunning to behold. The costumes and set stand out a million miles, leaving viewers lost in the dreamy world that exists within the main character’s wardrobe.

The Wardrobe

It is time to pay homage to the true star of this insane new comedy: Katherine Ryan’s stylist. Even if laughing for 120 minutes straight does not appeal to you, The Duchess is worth watching solely to indulge in the perfection of Ryan’s boujee outfits.

From arguing with her daughter in the schoolyard dressed as a literal princess…

To exhibiting a new headband emboldened with gemstones in every scene… 

…the gorgeous garb in this show will have you pretty much hooked from 5 seconds in. You will find yourself rewinding to catch jokes you missed out on because you were too busy drooling over the salmon-pink boiler suit Katherine wears while working as a potter. You will envision yourself in years to come, wearing sequins on the school run and showing up at your ex’s wedding looking like a Disney princess…

and don't forget this absolute gem of a jumper that appears in the very first scene – also worn on the school run…

One thing’s for sure; we have never seen anything like the sheer number of stunning ensembles worn by Ryan – a wardrobe that even Blair Waldorf herself would envy. This, however, makes total sense, because it turns out the show’s stylist Jennifer Michalski-Bra also worked on Gossip GirlThe Duchess portrays a whole new set of gowns, jumpsuits and brightly coloured mesh blouses to obsess over. Lord knows we need it these days since the opportunities to dress up have become few and far between. 

The Decor

Honestly, this show is a literal treasure trove for those who enjoy the finer things in life. If like us, walking into a refurbished Georgian home gives you goosebumps or a palette of dusty pinks and soft greys makes you dizzy, it's time to watch and re-watch The Duchess. Not that we have any idea how a potter in her early 30s can afford this lush north-London townhouse, but we will not argue with perfection. It is a palace for the modern woman.

Katherine's pottery studio is located in what appears to be a conservatory-like extension on the back of the house. With large glass framing the room, the afternoon sun beams down on to her stylish white workspaces. Her kitchen is that of a typical vintage remodelling with an Island of marble and her cosy sitting room hosts mustard yellows and even more soft pinks.

All in all, this show has surpassed all expectations fashion-wise and we cannot wait for a second season. You can watch The Duchess on Netflix now.

Now that the Summer is drawing to a close and the evenings are getting slightly shorter, it’s time to bring on the movie-nights! Netflix UK & Ireland revealed which movies are being added to the streaming service next month, and it’s quite a list.

Horror fans will be pleased to know that a number of scary flicks are being added in anticipation of the upcoming spooky season. 2018’s Halloween, along with Freddy vs Jason, Slaughterhouse Rulez and The Babysitter: Killer Queen are among some of the films people can enjoy come September.

If you’re looking for more of a family-friendly, movie-night vibe, then make sure to check out all three of the Johnny English films. If you want to feel nostalgic, then sit back and enjoy Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, or opt for the newer adaptation featuring Johnny Depp, which will also be available — just make sure to have plenty of sweets and chocolate at hand first!

Some of the new releases include Enola Holmes, starring Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown, Henry Cavill and Sam Claflin. Millie plays the rebellious younger sister to Sherlock Holmes, who disguises herself as a boy in an attempt to find her mother after she goes missing.

The Devil All The Time is another new film being added to Netflix next month, featuring another star-studded cast, including Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson.

Deadpool and Zoolander are the way to go if you’re looking for a good action-comedy. However if you’re craving an emotional drama, then make sure to check out First Man starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy, which tells the story about how Neil Armstrong and his team made the first moon landing.

Netflix has assured us that this isn’t their full list, and as always there will be plenty more films and series to be added to the streaming service next month.

Netflix just dropped the trailer for their new series, The Duchess, and we’re absolutely obsessed. This hilarious new show will be coming to the streaming service on September 11.

Canadian comedian, Katherine Ryan, will Executive Produce, write and star in her debut scripted series. The Duchess explores the unique world view of a fashionably disruptive all-round bad person whose redeeming quality is that she’ll sacrifice everything to be a good parent.

While The Duchess is classified as a comedy, Katherine's character does a fantastic job at illustrating the challenging reality of life as a single mother. 

Nearly a decade ago, Katherine got pregnant by Irish boy-band pop star, Shep Knight, played by Dublin native Rory Keenan. ‘The last guy to get up off the stool’. He would soon become her greatest enemy, but they now keep a lid on their mutual disdain for one another for the sake of their exquisite daughter, Olive.

Olive is the love of Katherine’s life. Now in a position to grow her family, Katherine debates whether it makes more sense to have a baby with her very devoted new boyfriend, go it alone, or double-down on her first mistake and have another child with her nemesis, Shep.

Katherine’s strength of character and singular perspective challenges everyone around her and the audience in a fantastically entertaining way — it is unapologetic and confrontational — and she manages to be sympathetic and vulnerable in her own trademark way.

The trailer for Hilary Swank’s harrowing new series, Away, just dropped and we’re in absolute awe. The emotional drama series is due to be released on Netflix on September 4.

From Executive Producer Jason Katims, the visionary who brought us Friday Night Lights and Parenthood, comes a thrilling new story which celebrates the incredible advancements humans can achieve and the personal sacrifices they must make along the way. Away shows that sometimes to reach for the stars, we must leave home behind.

As American astronaut Emma Green, played by two-time academy-award-winner Hilary Swank,  prepares to lead an international crew on the first mission to Mars, she must reconcile her decision to leave behind her husband and teenage daughter when they need her the most. As the crew's journey into space intensifies, their personal dynamics and the effects of being away from their loved ones back on Earth become increasingly complex. 

Hilary plays the leading lady of the show, Emma Green, who is an American astronaut, former Navy pilot and the commander of the first mission to Mars. Her husband, Matt Logan, played by Josh Charles, is a NASA engineer, facing the already enormous challenges of dealing with the mission from home, while trying to raise their 15-year-old daughter on his own.

The rest of the mission-crew consist of Misha Popov, Russian cosmonaut and engineer, Dr. Kwesi Weisberg – Abban, world-renowned botanist who carries with him the hope of growing life on Mars, Ram Arya, an Air Force fighter pilot from India, Lu Wang, a chemist and astronaut representing China and Melissa Ramirez, a former astronaut who is Emma’s Liaison To Earth.

We all need a happiness booster more than ever right now and Netflix has answered our prayers with the new series Sweet Magnolias.

Fans of Gilmore Girls are bound to love this charming, feel-good series. Sweet Magnolias follows three South Carolina women, best friends since childhood, as they juggle relationships, family and careers in the charming small town of Serenity.

Sweet Magnolias stars Joanna Garcia Swisher as Maddie, Heather Headley as Helen and Brooke Elliot as Dana Sue.

Jamie Lynn Spears stars as Noreen, American Pie’s Chris Klein stars as Bill Townsend and Grey’s Anatomy actor Justin Bruening as Cal Maddox.

The Netflix show is based on the books by American writer Sherryl Woods.

I binge-watched all ten episodes of the series in one day and it was everything I needed during these dull and overwhelming days. It is such an easy show to watch and you get completely wrapped up in the small town charm, the everyday drama and the complex relationships. It helps you switch off from the world we're living in right now and I think we could all benefit from doing that at the moment.

Sweet Magnolias is the ultimate source of comfort we need during the lockdown. All ten episodes are available on Netflix now.

Netflix has yet to renew the show for a second season, but given the overwhelmingly positive response, there’s no doubt that Sweet Magnolias will be back for a second instalment.

It seems like everyone watched the second season of You over the Christmas break. I binge-watched all ten episodes in the space of two days and still can’t get over that cliffhanger.

The second season of the Netflix drama was as gripping as ever. It was undoubtedly better than the first season, mainly due to the number of twists.

Joe begins a new chapter of his life in LA but the serial killer doesn’t stay there for long.

At the end of season two, Joe and his new beau Love have moved to a gorgeous home in Mexico. Love is expecting their first child, and she’s just as evil as Joe, so you’d think he’d settle down and be happy.

He’s finally met his match, but alas he’s got another victim in mind.

At the end of episode ten, Joe is seen spying on his neighbour, but viewers don’t think she’s another love interest.

As the season comes to a close, Joe says, “There you were with your books and your sunshine, so close but worlds away. I will figure out a way. A way to get to you. See you soon, neighbour.”

The woman is notably older than Joe and considering the number of flashbacks to his childhood in season two, viewers think the woman is actually Joe’s mum.

Many viewers believe he wants to get revenge after his mum sent him away when he was a child. Others think she started a new family in Mexico.

Who knows what will happen in season three of You. Season two was full of twists and turns so all I’ll say is expect the unexpected.

Netflix has released the full trailer for season two of You and it looks creepier than ever. The series returns to Netflix on December 26, with Joe now laying low and hiding from his ex in LA.

When we last saw Joe (Penn Badgley) his heart was tragically broken and his past just caught up with him in the form of long-lost ex-girlfriend Candace (Ambyr Childers) — a woman now hell-bent on teaching him a lesson. 

Season two finds him on the run from Candace — leaving New York City for his own personal hell: Los Angeles. He’s fresh out of an intense relationship that ended in murder. The last thing he expects is to meet an incredible new woman but he’s falling in love again — with a woman named Love (Victoria Pedretti). Is history repeating? Or will this time be the real thing? Joe’s just crazy enough to risk finding out.

Showrunner Sarah Gamble revealed that the audience will learn much more about Joe's past in the next season, including how he became an obsessive stalker and serial killer.

“There's a lot more to explore about Joe from earlier in his life. Those are the things we're starting to get into for season two,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

You airs on Netflix on December 26.
