The last unofficial weekend of summer is fast-approaching, and your favorite streaming services are giving you plenty of reasons to stay out of the heat. In between barbecues and beach trips, stay in this week and marathon Amazon’s much anticipated Jack Ryan series or settle in and binge Ozark Season 2.

Looking for something a bit more low-stress? Netflix announced they’ve acquired the rights to the latest seasons of the Great British Bake-Off, and any anglophile worth their earl grey tea will be dying to see Noel Fielding host a baking competition. Movie fans shouldn’t feel left out either, from cute kid’s fare like Ferdinand to classics like the Terminator – Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and HBO are delivering the goods this Labor Day weekend.
