Just like a zombie horde, a massive influx of new shows and movies is hitting Netflix, Disney Plus, and other major streaming platforms this weekend.

This weekend brings "The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live," the newest spinoff of the popular AMC series. This installment reunites original series stars Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira, portraying the long-separated lovers Rick Grimes and Michonne. Additionally, the highly anticipated live-action adaptation of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" finally makes its debut.

On the movie front, the critically acclaimed film "All of Us Strangers" and the biopic "Priscilla" are now available on streaming platforms. Here's our guide on what to watch this weekend.

1. ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ (Netflix)

Nickelodeon's "Avatar: The Last Airbender" holds a special place in the hearts of fans, known as one of the most beloved animated series of all time. M. Night Shyamalan's unsuccessful attempt at a live-action film adaptation disappointed many.

However, Netflix is now taking on the challenge, aiming to create a more satisfying live-action series adaptation. The main storyline remains the same, following the journey of Aang, a young hero destined to become the next Avatar.

His mission involves mastering the elemental abilities of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air to restore balance to a world threatened by the aggressive Fire Nation.

True love may just triumph over even the undead - or so it seems in this latest spinoff of “The Walking Dead.” This series brings back stars Andrew Lincoln and Danai Guirira, who departed from the original show well before its conclusion, portraying the star-crossed lovers Rick Grimes and Michonne.

As fans may remember, Rick was presumed dead by his comrades after a skirmish with a swarm of walkers in season 9, only to be revealed as taken by an unknown militia via helicopter.

Michonne eventually parted ways with their group upon finding evidence that Rick may have survived. Now, years later, their paths are fated to cross once more, but the question remains: has their love endured the trials of time?

3. ‘Formula 1: Drive to Survive’ season 6 (Netflix)

The popular racing documentary series isn't so much about "who won it" as it is about "how they won it." After all, viewers are already aware of the outcomes from the concluded 2023 season.

It's hardly a big reveal to mention that reigning champion Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing are once again at the forefront. The excitement stems less from the race results and more from the behind-the-scenes machinations, internal conflicts, and brewing rivalries. Season 6 introduces rookie drivers Oscar Piastri and Logan Sargeant to the mix.

4. ‘Mea Culpa’ (Netflix)

Tyler Perry isn't just known for his "Madea" comedies; he expanded into directing dramas quite some time ago. His latest venture is a legal thriller featuring Destiny’s Child alum Kelly Rowland as criminal defense attorney Mea Harper.

In this film, Mea becomes embroiled in a murder case centered around enigmatic artist Zyair Malloy, portrayed by Trevante Rhodes. As Mea delves into the intricacies of the case and contends with her client's elusive charm, she discovers that everyone harbors guilt to some extent. And where desire and deception lurk, danger is never far behind.

5. The 30th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (Netflix)
