New Movies and Shows to Stream This Weekend: Raymond and Ray, Inside Amy Schumer (Season 5), Barbarians (Season 2) + More

This week, Amy Schumer goes back to her roots this week with the release of a brand-new season of her beloved sketch show, Inside Amy Schumer. Premiering on Paramount +, the show brings back Schumer’s smart, topical comedy with support from some new celebrity guests. Over on Apple TV +, Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke join forces in Raymond & Ray, a dramatic comedy about two brothers who begrudgingly reunite after their father dies. And on Netflix, Barbarians is back! The first season of the German series depicted the dramatic (and also very sexy) Roman occupation of Germany and the resulting Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD, and in season two, we’ll learn that the battle is far from over.

New on Apple TV + October 21: Raymond and Ray

In Raymond & Ray, Ewan McGregor and Ethan Hawke star as two half brothers who, upon learning of their estranged father’s death, reunite for his funeral. The one hitch is that their father’s dying was was for the two grown men to dig his grave di lui. The film, which was written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia, was released theatrically on October 14, and is now available to stream on Apple TV +.

New on Netflix October 21: Barbarians (Season 2)

When the six-episode series Barbarians was released on Netflix in 2020, it quickly shot up in Netflix’s Top Ten, and fans have been waiting patiently for a new season ever since. The new season promises the return of actors Laurence Rupp as Arminius, Jeanne Goursaud as Thusnelda, and David Schutter as Folkwin Wolfspeer, and will feature several new cast members who will portray the villainous Roman troops attempting to conquer Germany once again. Can the Germanic tribes reunite to hold them off? Things look harder this time around, as it seems that some alliances have shifted since we last saw our barbarian heroes, which will ultimately complicate the battle.
