The biggest new releases coming to Netflix, Stan, hayu, Foxtel and more this week

If the world outside is looking a little dark for your liking, this week's bumper line-up of comedy shows and movies should have you grinning like the Cheshire cat in no time.

Laughs are the dish du jour in this week's buffet of new streaming releases.

Netflix subscribers have plenty to giggle about with the arrival of the first season of Marlon, a light-hearted comedy series about a goofy father trying to raise his kids alongside his ex-wife. If you prefer humour of a more adult variety, the romantic comedy Set It Up sees two young corporate assistants attempt to play matchmaker with their respective bosses, one of whom is played by Lucy Liu.

The laughs continue over on Stan, where the second season of Claws dives back into the wacky criminal antics of a band of nail-salon employees. Stan subscribers can also enjoy the surprisingly heartfelt horror comedy Warm Bodies, which somehow manages to merge romance and zombies in a way that feels oddly natural. For the kids, the first season of the Canadian animated series Chuck's Choice makes its Stan debut this week, too.

Foxtel delivers its rib-ticklers this week in the form of Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. Based on the popular Captain Underpants book series, the feature film sees the briefs-wearing superhero go up against an evil scientist plotting to eradicate humour from the entire world. If that's not your style, you can always dive into the gritty underworld of Blade Runner 2049, which makes its on-demand debut this week.

Reality TV addicts will want to lock their devices to hayu this Tuesday, when the seventh season of Million Dollar Listing New York makes its premiere.

Those who prefer a darker tone to their entertainment, meanwhile, should look to Amazon Prime Video and SBS On Demand. This week sees Amazon Prime Video add the second season of its popular Goliath original series, continuing down-and-out lawyer Billy McBride's grim quest for redemption. Over on SBS On Demand, the critically-acclaimed spy thriller Counterpart premieres free and exclusively on the Australian-based streaming platform.
