The weather will be uncertain over part of France on this first weekend of summer. Fortunately the streaming platforms have planned some new things to keep you occupied if the rain prevents you from going out. Netflix is launching its series “Sex / Life”, which should make people talk, as well as the Swedish series for teenagers “Young Royales”.
As for other services, Amazon Prime Video offers “Solos”, an anthology series with a prestigious cast, while Salto puts the entire “Brothers Scott” online. Finally, Canal + notably offers all the seasons of “Bienvenue à Schitt’s Creek”, a series previously unseen in France.

Here are the movies and series to watch this week on streaming platforms:
On Netflix, launch of the series ‘Sex / Life’ – friday 25 june
In line with the successes of “Fifty Shades of Gray” and “365 Days”, Netflix offers a series adapted from the novel “4 men in 44 chapters”. It tells the story of the love triangle between a woman, her husband and a man who emerges from her past. Presented as a “new and provocative look at feminine identity and desire”, she promises, given the trailer, torrid scenes that should be talked about.
Netflix also offers the Swedish series ‘Young Royals’ – Thursday July 1
A few weeks after the launch of season 4 of “Elite”, Netflix puts online a new series for teens in a high school for young people from wealthy families. Here, the prince of the Swedish royal family arrives at school and will seek to find a place for himself and lead a normal life, when an event turns everything upside down.
