It’s Jenna Ortega’s world, and we’re just living in it. Since November, when Wednesday debuted on Netflix and immediately shot to the top of the streaming charts, Ortega’s star has skyrocketed along with it. From her off-camera style to her awards-show presentation chops, we can’t get enough.
But we won’t have to wait until season two of Wednesday premieres to see more of Ortega; she next stars in Paramount Picture’s sixth installment of the Scream franchise, out this Friday, and then, on Saturday, she’ll take the SNL stage at 30 Rock as she makes her hosting debut. The week after that? Well, at this rate I wouldn’t be surprised if we see her at the Oscars or the coveted invite-only Vanity Fair party.
Something else we can’t get enough of? Prime Video’s Daisy Jones & the Six, which drops three more episodes this Friday. Meanwhile, part two of You season four premieres on Netflix this week, and Kerry Washington is back on our screens in Hulu’s timely, sweet, funny, and important series Unprisoned. Read more about it below.
Finally, the Oscars are only a week away, so I’ll see you back here next week for all you need to know about Hollywood’s biggest night and how to watch. So happy first full week of March, and don’t forget to move your clocks ahead one hour on Saturday night, March 11!

History of the World, Part 2__ __(Hulu): The four-night event features a variety of sketches that take you through different periods of history; it’s already generated plenty of interest, given that the trailer has nearly 10 million views (and because it’s a sequel to the seminal Mel Brooks film from 40 years ago).
