Streaming services are debuting several highly-anticipated titles this week.

Since staying in is the new normal, streaming services are spoiling us with fresh titles to help us keep our sanity during these challenging times. Social distancing means spending more time indoors, so now's the perfect time to get the most out of your streaming subscriptions. Thankfully, there's plenty to watch.

Giant Netflix is launching the Altered Carbon anime spin-off this week, Resleeved. The film features an original story that sees Takeshi Kovacs protecting a tattooist while investigating the death of a yakuza boss.

Moreover, three excellent new series are scheduled to drop this weekend. Dare Me is a dark and addictive cheerleading thriller, while Feel Good is an acclaimed show about a stand-up comedian who's struggling to maintain her sobriety while navigating a new relationship. Additionally, Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker stars Octavia Spencer as the first African American self-made millionaire.

Over at Stan, we're getting a new comedy, First Wives Club. Based on the 90s movie of the same name, the show follows three women who band together after their marriages fall apart and find strength in their sisterhood. If satire is more your thing, you can watch The Dictator, co-written by and starring Sacha Baron Cohen. The movie revolves around a ruthless dictator who gets kidnapped. Similarly, The Good Fight Season 3 arrives on Prime Video, with political humour and quality drama to spare.

On Foxtel, Westworld returns with new episodes, almost two years after the Season 2 finale. You might also want to check out The Plot Against America, an alternative history drama in which Franklin D. Roosevelt is defeated in the presidential election of 1940 by Charles Lindbergh. Too serious? Stream Future Man on SBS On Demand, a wacky comedy about an underachieving janitor who is called upon to save the world.

Finally, Disney+ is treating viewers by making hit Frozen II available on the streaming platform earlier than scheduled. If your kids aren't coping well with all this time spent indoors, the news should be a blessing.
