Sex Education season 4
Watch now: Netflix
Sex Education returns for its fourth and final season on Netflix, with eight new episodes available to stream now. Otis (Asa Butterfield), Eric (Ncuti Gatwa), and the rest of the Moordale gang are forced to start fresh at a new school, so there are plenty of new faces and new challenges to contend with – including a rival sex therapist for Otis. Plus, Maeve (Emma Mackey) is still in the US, and she and Otis are struggling to make a long-distance relationship work. One thing's for sure: it's going to be an emotional climax...
Watch now: Prime Video
Director Roger Ross Williams takes a departure from documentary filmmaking for this charismatic underdog tale, which tells the true story of gay amateur wrestler Saúl Armendáriz (beautifully portrayed by the always brilliant Gael García Bernal). One day, Saúl decides he wants to turn things upside down in the world of lucha libre, and so begins performing as Cassandro, a persona that embraces femininity. A film with plenty of heart, you will be cheering for Cassandro from your sofa.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem
Watch now: Paramount Plus
Cowabunga! The TMNT gang is back with an all-new adventure that is one of the year's best animated movies. Join Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael as they attempt to hunt down a mysterious crime syndicate, which sees them running into an army of mutants headed up by the villainous Superfly. Expect electric visuals, plenty of charm, and yes, slice upon slice of pizza. There is already a movie sequel, TV show, and tie-in video game in the works, so you'll see even more of these turtles soon.
