The weekend promises plenty of new drama, horror, and binge-worthy returns on Netflix.

New and buzzworthy on Netflix: Living With Yourself

Your fave and mine, Paul Rudd, stars in Netflix's newest big-ticket project, Living With Yourself. The Ant-Man actor plays Miles, a man who is literally replaced by a better version of himself after undergoing a bizarre "spa treatment".

When Miles wakes from the jarring experience, he finds that a happier, more lovable version of himself is living in his home and occupying his life.

Aisling Bea, Alia Shawkat, and Desmin Borges also star.

If you haven't already started watching Netflix's insanely addictive rap talent search, Rhythm & Flow, this weekend is the perfect time to start. Rap hopefuls from all over the United States battle it out for $250,000 and the ultimate bragging rights.

Rappers T.I., Cardi B, and Chance The Rapper serve as judges on a show that leans into a tried and tested format but also adds some genre-specific twists.

Netflix are releasing three episodes a week until they crown a winner in the highly anticipated finale, which airs at the end of October.
