Looking for the something new to watch on streaming services this weekend?

For K-drama fans looking for their next binge-worthy series, the highly anticipated mystery thriller action drama series Jirisan is premiering on Asian streaming site iQiyi this Sunday (Oct. 24). The series stars Gianna Jun and Ju Ji-hoon (who previously collaborated on Kingdom) as rangers at Mount Jiri National Park who uncover the truth behind a mysterious accident that occurs on the mountain.

All 26 episodes of the original anime series Cowboy Bebop are now streaming ahead of Netflix’s live-action series in November, along with the second season of teen thriller series Locke & Key. There’s also a Spanish reality show hosted by Money Heist’s Najwa Nimri where contestants don’t know they’re being filmed.

And in case you missed watching theatrical productions, Lapulapu, ang Datu ng Mactan, the first theatrical production at the newly-conserved Metropolitan Theatre (MET) since it closed its doors in 1996, will be streaming on Facebook this Sunday as well.

Here’s a roundup of some of the latest shows and movies that dropped on Netflix, iQiyi, HBO Go, and other streaming services in the Philippines.
