It’s all about nostalgia this week as Sex and the City, the series, arrives on Netflix, Dr. Arizona Robbins checks back in to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital on Grey’s Anatomy, and Kristen Wiig graces the Saturday Night Live stage as host.

Let’s start with Sex and the City, which will remain on Max, but will also now be available for all Netflix subscribers starting Monday. Given that …And Just Like That’s third season probably won’t premiere until 2025 (season three will start filming in the next few months), now’s the time to revisit the flagship series if you want your Carrie and Co. fix.

On Thursday, Jessica Capshaw returns to Grey’s Anatomy as fan favorite Dr. Arizona Robbins. She’s back for a complicated medical case, and while additional details are being kept under wraps, showrunner/EP/writer Meg Marinis tells Glamour it was as if Arizona had never been away. “It was so good to have her home,” Marinis says. “It took one word and she was back. She went back to Arizona, and it was like she had never left. Jessica said she even felt that way for her. And when I went on set and saw her standing next to Chandra Wilson, it was like, ‘Oh my gosh.’ Just that laugh and those blue eyes…it was really fun.”

Then on Saturday, Kristen Wiig returns to Studio 8H to host Saturday Night Live in support of her Emmy-worthy role as Maxine Simmons on Apple TV+’s Palm Royale (speaking of, we also have an exclusive clip of the next all-new episode. Watch that under the Wednesday tab further down below). Given that it’s Wiig’s fifth time hosting SNL, expect an induction into the Five-Timers Club with fellow SNL legends as well as some of Wiig’s famous friends. She most recently made a guest appearance when Kate McKinnon hosted in December 2023. Take a look:

I wouldn’t be surprised if we see Maya Rudolph also make an appearance, considering she’s friends with Wiig and also has the second season of her Apple TV+ comedy series Loot to promote.

And if all the above isn’t enough to keep your schedule busy this week, then take a look at the full list of new offerings below (including quite a few new film releases). From Beyoncé and Cher being honored at the iHeartRadio Music Awards to Andrew Scott and Dakota Fanning in Netflix’s Ripley, it’s a stacked lineup. Also, happy first full week of Major League Baseball to all who celebrate! Bring on hot dogs, freshly cut grass, and the unofficial start of summer. I can’t think of a better time to rewatch The Natural and Field of Dreams than now.

This is storytelling at its best—full of romantic moments, heartbreak, and the power of healing.

It was such an honor to play these iconic roles in Karen’s first feature film.” In theaters

A Bit of Light (Quiver Distribution): Oscar winner Anna Paquin (True Blood, X-Men, Flack) stars in—and produces—this poignant film, directed by fellow actor (and husband) Stephen Moyer. It’s about a recovering alcoholic named Ella (Paquin) who moves back in with her father, Alan (Ray Winstone), after a series of setbacks. But while Ella’s daughters are under the care of her ex-husband, Joseph (Yossef Kerkour), and his new partner, Bethan (Pippa Bennett-Warner), she finds herself in fights with them about the kids and Alan over AA meetings. Meanwhile an unlikely friendship with Neil (Luca Hogan) opens her eyes to a new way of life.

Paquin tells Glamour that “so many cycles of family dysfunction are allowed to perpetuate because they are never spoken about or dealt with. And who we are—or were—in our families of origin does show up in our parenting, for better or worse. So often the way women are portrayed in these stories falls neatly into surface-level tropes that lack nuance and authenticity.” Paquin says that the film is “a must-watch for all of us who want to dig deeper with our entertainment and crave raw emotional honesty that will get under your skin in the best possible way.” In theaters and on digital/demand

Monkey Man (Universal Pictures): In actor Dev Patel’s directorial debut (which earned raves at this month’s SXSW festival), the action thriller examines one man’s quest for vengeance against the corrupt leaders who murdered his mother and continue to victimize the poor and powerless.

In the process, she uncovers a terrifying conspiracy that hopes to bring about the birth of evil incarnate. Tawkeef Barhom, Sonia Braga, Ralph Ineson, and Bill Nighy, also star. In theaters

Mary and George (Starz): The seven-part limited series starring Julianne Moore and Nicholas Galitzine is inspired by the true story of a duplicitous mother and son who schemed and killed to conquer the Court of England and the bed of King James I.

What happens next forms the backbone of the shockingly relevant, utterly hilarious, timely, and only moderately perspirant stories that comprise Just for Us.” 10 p.m. ET/PT, 9 p.m. CT, and streaming on Max

Blind Date Book Club (Hallmark Channel): In this new original movie, which is part of Hallmark’s annual Spring Into Love programming event, a bookstore owner (When Calls the Heart’s Erin Krakow) finds love and direction in life when she agrees to have a famous author’s (Chesapeake Shores’ Robert Buckley) new novel reviewed by her book club. 8 p.m ET/7 p.m. CT
