By Kara Santos Published Mar 30, 2021 3:44 pm

With people stuck at home again for the second year in a row this Holy Week break, it just means that everyone  will have more time on their hands to catch up on shows on streaming sites.

Along with the traditional religious-themed fare you can watch in between praying that this pandemic ends soon, there are a few feel-good family-friendly Easter specials such as A Week Away, a teen faith-based musical set in a church camp.

There are also loads of addicting series and films for adults that you can watch to keep yourself entertained over the next few days. In case you haven't watched it yet, the upcoming break might be a good time to stream Zack Snyder's four-hour long cut of Justice League on HBO.
